Weekly Kickstarter Boardgame News – KW30


Welcome to WKBN! Today, we’d like to present you three wonderful new games from Kickstarter And all of these have something in common We like them! At first there’s “Near and far” “Near and Far” is made by Ryan Laukat and is the inofficial successor of Above and Below The game just came to Kickstarter and wants to go a bit further than its precursor In this game you can build your character in a campaign and experience a whole story The game’s artwork is more than just nice it’s mixing fairytales and comic-style and it helps to feel the magical world that you play in. We for ourselves really like the artwork and definitively want to see more of the game Ryan Laukat already has made some Kickstarter expiriences so we don’t think that one has to fear delayed delivery as Ryan knows how to publish games Who’s interested in the game will have to pay 50$ for it If you want to get the expansion for “Above and Below” it’s 20$ more Both of course plus shippint At next, there’s “Vampire Hunters” Vampire Hunters by Dark Gate Games is a very good example of how Kickstarter shoult work as it’s a big advantage of crowdfunding that the developers have much contact to their customers Hereby, you can react quite fast to criticism and that’s exactly what happened here Vampire Hunters has already been funded before But because of customer feedback, the developers decided to cancel the campaign and to go online again now with revised rules Vampire Hunters is a Dungeon Crawler that handles the vampire theme quite interesting We by ourselves play Vampire Hunters (who would have thought of that?) and we go hunting vampires At first sight, the game looks like a solid dungeon crawler but what’s really interesting is the day and night mechanics Because at night the vampires get special bonuses and are much harder to defeat than at sunlight because of that, the team really has to think about how to kill the bloodsuckers and how to prepare for the night The game will contain much materials and wonderful miniatures and convinces us without problems It won’t be very cheap – you’ll have to pay 90$ plus shipping for your Dracula-Experience if you want Kickstarter Exclusives and the expansion, you’ll have to pay 135$ At least to my personal highlight: “Fate of the Elder Gods” At Fate of the Elder Gods we dont play desperate investigators as in Eldritch or Arkham Horror that try to fight monsters and the Great Old Ones No, here we play cultists and we have to pay homage to the Elder Gods and our final goal is to summon our personal Great Old One That sounds pretty interesting to us The game is about populating special places with our cultists and about fighting those “bad” investigators that dare to close our opened gates with their Elder Signs Unfortunately, you’ll have to pay 29$ only for shipping which may let you rethink your investment in the game That’s all for this week. We hope that you’ve had some fun. If you’re interested in one of the projects, you’ll find the corresponding links down in the description See you next week and stay tuned!
