Dungeon in a Box is back on Kickstarter, bringing with them 2D plastic minis or tabletop RPGs.
Such minis are increasingly popular as gamers look for cost-effective models that don’t require much space, need much care and even less paint. Of course, if you’re stuck inside and have to use virtual tabletops, then physical minis are less attractive, but the lockdowns are beginning to ease. You can join in or just see the latest tally on the pitch page.
Having Amy Vorpahl and Becca Scott and ambassadors certainly helps, but the proof seems to be in the pudding. This is the second Skinny Minis campaign; it’s a day old and already over 1,500 backers strong.
The die-cut pieces have different front and back art and make clever use of transparency.
Stretch goals are plentiful on this campaign, and backers will get the chance to steer some decisions.
A pledge of $1 gets you access to the pledge manager. The next reward tier is a significant step up, all the way to $70, which gets 10 whole sets of Skinny Minis but not the stretch goals. The XL Dragon Turtle and Demon Lord are included, as are some bases.
Then, at $129, backers get 20 sets, and the stretch goals are now added. There’s twice as many bases at this tier with twenty 1″ ones, six 2″ bases and two 3″ ones.
Gold tier, also a Kickstarter exclusive, is a reward for backers who go to $238. That’s 40 sets, the XL Kraken, XL Phoenix and a flying stand set added to the growing collection of bases.
The highest remaining tier is Platinum, which delivers 60 sets, and costs $349. There’s the Siege Terrain set added there, which means catapults, siege towers and the like.
At the time of writing, hundreds of backers have found the cash to support the Platinum tier, making it the second most popular option.
All the tiers are projected for a November 2022 delivery, early birds have sold out.
