Welcome to Kickstart Monday! This is our weekly series featuring 2 or more crowdfunding projects that have caught our eye. We scour over platforms like Kickstarter, Gamefound, and Indigogo to find projects that interest us.
First up this week is Teotihuacan: City of the Gods Deluxe Master Set from Board and Dice. Teotihuacan was originally released in 2018 but is back again in a new deluxified form. Teotihuacan is one of the hit Eurogames from the “T-series” by designer David Tascini and is a favorite here at WiscoDice as well.
In Teotihuacan players move worker dice that grow in strength as they move along a rondel that is the city of Teotihuacan itself. Players will gather needed resources, make technological advancements, ascend the steps of the temples to the gods, and build and decorate the pyramid at the center of the city.
The deluxe master set includes a number of aesthetic enhancements to this already great game:
- Larger custom dice
- Heat printed resource tokens
- Heat printed Temple token
- Dual Layer player boards
- Alternate board art
- Custom resource bags
- Player Mats
- 5th Player expansion
(Note that not all upgrades are available at all pledge levels)
If you were sitting on the fence for Teotihuacan, now is the time to act you’ve got until May 12 to back this beautiful upgrade to an awesome game.
Secondly this week we have Zombicide: White Death from CMON, the next entry in the insanely popular Zombicide series of games.
Zombicide: White Death is a sequel to Black Plague and Green Horde and it takes place in a medieval fantasy setting. Players must defend the frozen city of Wintergrad whether it be from the tops of the stone battlements or on the field of battle. This iteration of Zombicide looks to have primarily an eastern theme. Players may be taking on the role of a samurai or eastern warriors or wizards. The zombies and abominations borrow from eastern mythology as well such as the Kumihimo abomination which appears to be Zombicide’s version of a nine-tailed fox, the Qilin abomination, a Hooven chimerical kind of dragon-horse from Chinese mythology and the intimidating multi-armed Asura abomination, a demon from Indian myths. As it stands the game looks to have at least 40 survivor characters to play and 13 unique abominations. If that’s not enough for you there are of course a huge number of add-ons you can include in your pledge, almost all of which include beautiful and intricately detailed miniatures.
If you are ready to stand your ground against the white death, visit the Kickstarter page before Apr 26 to make your pledge.
