Minion Games has announced the Kickstarter campaign for the first expansion to the 2015 release Dead Men Tell No Tales which is entitled Dead Men Tell No Tales: The Kraken. Dead Men Tell No Tales: The Kraken is designed by Kane Klenko and the artists are Jason D. Kingsley, Chris Ostrowski.
In this expansion, players will face the dreaded Kraken. Adding the expansion adds a few new conditions to the game such as requiring players to kill the Kraken before they can escape the ship with their treasure and lives. If the Kraken pulls the ship down or destroys it, the players lose.
Dead Men Tell No Tales: The Kraken comes with 1 Kraken miniature, 15 tentacle miniatures, a new character with meeple and miniature, status tokens and board for the Kraken, 42 game tokens, 1 cloth bag, new cards, and 5 player aids.
The campaign also offers a set of 7 miniatures for the base game characters that can be purchased alone or as an add-on. Finally a start board that is split apart so that it is easier to mark tiles exploded is available as an add-on. This new start board can be used to replace older versions of the base game before the the start board was updated in later editions.
Dead Men Tell No Tales: The Kraken campaign is running now and will end on February 15, 2018. Please see the campaign page for any information on pricing.
