Welcome to the first edition of Friday Kicks of 2017, firstly sorry its not a Friday so those of you who read the title and thought the weekend was nearly here your out off luck! Secondly I have decided to bring this back to try and keep up with whats going ton in the world of Kickstarters as I have grown a bit dispondant with them recently, mainly as there are so many great ones kicking around at the moment, so here goes.
So, sitting in a box for the last month or so I’ve had the spoils of the Mantic Games, Warpath Kickstarter and so on Saturday I decided to pull on of the Enforcer Interceptor’s out to see how well it went together.
Rise of Moloch is a Victorian, adventure board game for 2 to 5 players. One player will act as the Nemesis and take control of the secret society called The Cult that plans to install a government of the dead. The rest of the players cooperate as the Gentlemen of the Unicorn Club, dedicated to foiling the conspiracies that threaten the Crown.
Live on Kickstarter now, well past fully funded and with stretch goals falling by the wayside, Mythic Battles: Pantheon is a miniatures board game for 2 to 4 players that puts you in an Olympian God’s sandals! It offers several game modes: from tactical battles against other Gods, to scenarios and campaigns that’ll take you on an epic adventure across the devastated ruins of Ancient Greece. A typical game lasts 60-90 minutes.
A gentle rapping at my door has just announced the arrival of the Postman… and what looks to be a chunk of my Walking Dead Kickstarter from Mantic Games!
Most of you already know that Mantic is on the Kickstarter run again, you should do as we featured an exclusive here not to long ago.
What you don’t know is I fear for Ronnie’s safety as he is always quiet for the first few weeks leading me to believe that the rest of his staff/management team actually tie him up and only let him out for food and water if he doesn’t go near an Internet enabled device!
I played the original Deadzone and quite liked it so was very reluctant to move forwards with V2.
HUMANS AND ALIENS COLLIDE ON WORLDS ERASED FROM EXISTENCE ENTER THE DEADZONE!
In the future, unthinkably powerful mega-corporations own and govern entire planets outright, protecting their interests with vast, private armies. Now, an even greater danger is sweeping the galaxy – a hideous mutagen wiping out entire sectors of space. To stem the carnage, highly classified Containment Protocols are enacted, blockading the infected system and wiping it from navigational charts forever. Here, with the veil of civilisation lifted, rival factions descend into furious conflict, each with a unique claim on the chaos of the Deadzone!
So Dungeon Saga by Mantic Games has been out a while and even though I have the game and all the add ons etc, I have yet to write about it.
Over a thousand years ago, Valandor, the greatest known hero fell in battle, fighting to protect the lives of those around him. From shore to shore, all owe thanks to his wondrous legacy. Now, sacred sites across the land have been defiled and plundered by the disgraced wizard Mortibris, who along with his vile undead minions will stop at nothing to obtain the secrets of Valandor’s power. Only the bravest heroes dare oppose him. Thrown together from the far corners of the realm, they step boldly into the depths, ready to face whatever foul evil awaits them…
Hero, your quest begins here!
