Nottingham’s Mantic Games asked for $50,000 for a classic adventure board game. The campaign runs out at the end of August. What’s happened since launch? At the time of writing the game has raised over $420,000 in pledges from over 3,200 backers.
This is a game with Mantic’s usual flare for models, dungeon tiles and rules. If that sounds like a board game then it’s worth noting the stretch goals will likely allow you to create your own characters. This could almost be a mini RPG and it only takes two to play.
There are few pledge levels; $1, $95 (all gone) and $100 for the Dungeon Saga boxed game, Dungeon Saga Adventurer’s Companion and an exclusive signed art print. There’s a $500 retailer pledge that gets you a launch back for your store.
This is a Kickstarter that’s likely to pile in the cash in the final week. Gamers love to back a winner.
Unlocked stretch goals include armoured zombies, dwarf revenants, Grund Hammerhand the Undead Dwarf King with extra scenario and bonus tile, Kings of War rules, three ghosts, four exclusive resin miniatures of the Legendary Heroes of Dolgarth, three zombie trolls (zombie trolls!), a halfling thief, a human paladin, a Kickstarter exclusive halfling fighter, solo play and co-op game modes, a dryad druid shapeshifter (is that you Groot?), the Warlord of Galahir expansion pack and many more.
This will be a hefty box set.
