Some Kickstarter projects take off in a way that’s truly mindblowing. Such is the case with Kingdom Death: Monster 1.5. The campaign set its original goal at $100k, but skyrocketed to over $5 million in a matter of days.
The original game Kingdom Death: Monster is an epic tabletop miniatures game that conquered Kickstarter back in 2013 but has since sold out. Kingdom Death: Monster 1.5 is not only an expansion but an upgrade on the original game.
Kingdom Death Monster is a massive cooperative board game about survival in a nightmare-horror world. Survivors fight for their lives against an onslaught of bizarre and fearsome creatures. They will use the fruits of these battles to build a fragile civilization in a place where humans are at the bottom of a monstrous ecology.
Sounds awesome. But the success of this campaign is even more impressive when you consider the following:
(A.) It’s extremely expensive.
(B.) The original game is fairly obscure.
(C.) The base game ships in 2017 but all extras and expansions won’t be out until 2020.
Still, if you are interested in the game, there’s still plenty of time to back the project. In the meantime, check out a play through of Kingdom Death: Monster:
