Welcome to the PledgeManager for Dreams of Tomorrow!
If you missed our campaign, don't dismay! Just choose an option below.

Dreams of Tomorrow is a competitive set collection game about weaving dreams, manipulating action spaces, and careful timing of abilities.

Can you shape a dream so powerful it can change the world?

  •  Shifting Action Spaces (Rondel): Take control of your destiny by using the Dreams you've collected to manipulate the location of the action spaces, change your direction, and much more! 
  •  Fast and Engaging Turns: Each turn involves moving around the action spaces to take the action of your choice. This could also give resources to your fellow dream engineers, so players are always engaged, even on others' turns!
  •  Many Ways to Play: There are two main modes of play: Pleasant Night, where the players make all the changes to the locations of the action spaces, and Troubled Night, where the Night Mare can upset the action spaces and take actions out of your reach. There's also the ability to add in an easy to play Robot Player to increase player count and chaos in the the game! 

 See the rest of Richard's runthrough below, in the How to Play section.

"These two kind of dreams cards add some new strategic elements to the game and can really spice it up if you played a bunch of games of Dreams of Tomorrow. " - Liz, Beyond Solitaire

Below is the How to Play video:  

Below Rahdo does a runthrough of the game: 

Pleasant Night Mode

Each player's turn consists of moving around the Collective Consciousness, which is a set of 8 action spaces, and taking the action of the space they land on. Players can move 1-3 spaces on their turn for free or move a larger number of spaces by paying resources to do so. 

The four Resource action spaces all give the player a large amount of resources and give all other players a small amount of resources. 

The four Dream action spaces allow players to take an action concerning Dreams. The Catch Dream action space allows you to catch a Dream from the Dreamscape, taking it into your Dream Catcher. The Weave a Dream action space allows you to take a Dream from your Dream Catcher and weave it into your Dream Sequence. Only Dreams in your Dream Sequence add dream points, which are needed to win the game. Finally, there's two Activate Dream action spaces. These action spaces allow you to take advantage of an ability of a dream at the end of your Dream Sequence or a Dream in your Dream Catcher. 

Dream Abilities can do a variety of things. They can allow you to move a card in the Collective Consciousness to a new location and move 1 or 2 spaces, to gain certain resources while others gain nothing, or to catch a Dream from the discarded Dreams stack. 

For example, if you had a Dream in your Dream Catcher with the Flip & Move 1 or 2 Ability, you could move to the Activate Dream action space, flip the card with the action space you wish to go to, then move to it. Abilities can put action spaces within your reach that otherwise wouldn't be. 

The end of game is triggered when any one player adds the 5th Dream to their Dream Sequence. All players take an equal number of turns and then scores are tallied up. Add the dream points from each Dream in your Dream Sequence, plus points for Resonance.

Resonance occurs when two or more adjacent Dreams in a Dream Sequence have matching symbols.

Troubled Night Mode

Once you want to play the game with increased challenge, there's the Troubled Night mode that adds in the Night Mare. The Night Mare wrecks havoc on its turn and can cause cards in the Collective Consciousness to move and flip, can clear the Dreams in the Dreamscape, or it can even steal resources. You'll have to think on your feet to keep up with this crafty pony.

Solo Mode

There's also a Robot Player that can be added to the game! This is who you fight against for the solo version of the game, or you can add it in for an extra challenge to the multiplayer game. The Robot Player has quick turns and makes the game a race to the finish line. It can definitely add in the challenge with the three different levels included with the game: easy, medium, and hard.
