Lovecraftian TT mini KS

Postby Drool_bucket » Thu Apr 21, 2016 9:51 am

So I have mostly written off Kickstarter as something I wanna do, I KS'd plenty of projects that never even saw a game played in this meta. That said, this is the first minis game KS that has peaked my interest, only becase of the Lovecraftian approach.

and knowing that this meta (mostly) likes Lovecraft stuff, I thought I'd share!

If a few of you guys are interested in going in with me, we could do a single pledge and each get a box... enough to play!

I like the minis--a lot--but I couldn't fund a project with such sloppy descriptor text. The same people who wrote the text for the KS site might not be the same ones who write the rulebooks, cards, adventures, etc., (although they probably are) but it's about making a first impression that engenders trust.

Reading over what you wrote, and asking someone else to eyeball it, doesn't cost anything. They should have that shit together before they ask for money, you know?

I might be interested. I'll get back to you on that.

On a side note what other games have you backed but not been able to play?

The big one was Wild West Exodus... I did manage to recoup about 2/3 my money. That was my final buy-in to a new game. I also backed Zombicide which is one of the worst games of all times... gave it to Jack because I hated the game. Really turned me off of ever buying a "board game" before I play it.

I have some Relic Knight stuff floating around that I got as part of a good deal, still in box and honestly I have no desire to play it...

But I've collected a mess of other games that I've played once or twice... Dystopian Wars, WFB....

no biggie. I don't want to collect every game, I really love Malifaux. Its just this game is a cheap jump in and the models look pretty darn cool even if I never play the game.

The critters definitely look cool, and I love the feel of the narrative. But I'm in no financial position to join.
I'd be very happy to play, though, if you end up going through with it.

So, any thoughts on backing this? A week left.

It's kinda sputtered out, the Darksouls boardgame is a runaway KS train.... But if you check out the updates all the stuff they are showing us is really cool...

If you do a tiny bit of digging you can see all seven factions...

-priory (good guys)
-bug dudes
-wild born (with their awesome goat creature!)
- hidden sea monster people (deep ones of Innsmouth)
-brotherhood (police monsters)
enlightened - wizardly cultists
Travellers - gypsy people
