If you’re blinking your eyes in confusion, then count your stars that you’re a young geek. The rest of us will most likely remember one of the original geeky memes Trogdor! Shut up and take your money?
This Kickstarter is from Homestar Runner and with 28 days still on the clock, at the time of writing, is fast approaching US$350,000 in pledges and they only asked for $75,000. That’s more than 450% funded and with a month to go. This may confuse if you know nothing about Trogdor. In case that’s the case here’s a quick catch-up video.
The first pledge is US$40. That’ll get you the full game with screen-printed meeples. Step up to US$60, and you’ll get those printed meeples and high-quality plastic miniature game pieces. Backers have already gone much higher and found the moola to pledge in at US$200, US$500 and even higher.
The game is a tile flipping one (burning stuff) and is suitable for 14+. The estimated play time is between 30 and 45 minutes.
As you can imagine, they’ve burning through their pledge tiers as well. The quality of the board is much improved, we’ve canvas bags for the meeple, extra Homestar meeples and I suspect that team will be busy figuring out what else to add.
