FEATURED KICKSTARTER PROJECTS


Valhal
From: Tetrahedron Games
Ends: November 10, 2017
Goal: $22,383

Valhal is a strategic board game for 2-4 players, set at the dawn of the Viking era.

You take part as 'Jarls' of a settlement on the barren island of Fjörnheim. Your goal is to gain the favour of the Gods by extending your settlements and trying to find other people’s fortune overseas. And then take it.

Every game starts with the summer raids, the so called "Vikingfahrt". All players pick a town they want to attack with their troops. Afterwards they fight, following the intuitive battle system of fixed attack and defense stats combined with dice rolling. In case of success, the players get to loot the cities for treasures by drawing one of 35 unique loot cards, this is the main income the players have throughout the year.

Back home in their viking settlement, the players make use of their new gained fortune, recruiting more troops, bringing sacrifices to the gods and starting to build more ships buildings to extend their settlement.

From now on every season will start with the draw of an event card, there are 60 different ones, and each one of them may bring you joy or pain, or something in between. Every card has it's own story, many of them inspired by actual mythic stories of the time.

Another important part of the game are the ways of the northern gods. Their will is represented by 60 cards. By bringing sacrifices and certain events, the gods will grant you their Benevolence. Other events or hostile fellow players may force you to draw Wrath of the Gods cards. As in the event cards, every single card of the gods tells a story, many of them following the recorded stories about the gods.

Goal of the game is to rise in the favour of the Gods, as only one of the players will be allowed to enter Valhal! Gaining the favour of the Gods can be achieved through various ways in the game.

Valhal is on KICKSTARTER
between now and November 10, 2017.

Henchman
From: Clarion Game Studios
Ends: November 30, 2017
Goal: $10,000

Henchman: The Card Game is a deck-builder with a twist. Rather than building their deck of cards over the course of the game, each player takes turns purchasing cards from a skills market to build their deck before the core game begins. Once all players have purchased a unique collection of skills, these get added to the start cards common to all Minions. All players are now ready to begin attempting to increase their reputation with the Evil Overlord. Players take turns being the Minion in Charge (MIC). The Minion in Charge is responsible for doling out tasks to the other Minions, who then play cards to either help or hinder their abilities to complete the tasks. Completing a task rewards both the minion who undertook it, as well as the MIC—after all, one of the core responsibilities of any leader is delegation. However, failing to complete a task results in facing the wrath of the Evil Overlord.

Henchman is on KICKSTARTER between now and November 30, 2017.

Dawn of Peacemakers 
From: Snowdale Design
Ends: December 2, 2017
Goal: $70,000

Dawn of Peacemakers is an evolving board game with a continuing campaign. Players take roles of adventurers attempting to quell the hostilities between two warring sides. You will have to trust and cooperate with your fellow players in order to reach a more peaceful conclusion.

The game consists of a number of scenarios which form an exciting story driven campaign. There are multiple secrets and surprises in the box to be unveiled in certain points of the story. This way each game is radically different from the last and no two games feel the same.
