In B-Sieged: Sons of the Abyss, the Council has given the Messenger a quest: he must successfully escape the besieged citadel by slipping past the amassing enemies, after which he must find a very powerful artifact and return to the citadel with it to destroy the invading Abyssal Hordes.  The players control select heroes, tasked with ensuring that the Messenger escapes the Citadel safely and holding out on the castle walls until the Messenger returns.

In a game round, the heroes act first.  Each hero will have 3 actions he or she can take, including gaining resources, repairing buildings, fighting enemies, or using the catapult in the middle of the castle to fire on the invaders.  Then the Abyssal Hordes act, moving in to attack the citadel.  Monsters will move and attack differently based on 3 different zones positioned outside the city walls.

A copy of B-Sieged: Sons of the Abyss includes the following components:

  • 24 Standard Krohn miniatures
  • 8 Elite Krohn miniatures
  • 16 Standard Gargoh miniatures
  • 8 Elite Gargoh miniatures
  • 8 Mölen miniatures
  • 6 Hero miniatures
  • 202 cards
  • 115 tokens
  • 8 dice
  • 6 Hero dashboards
  • 6 colored Hero bases
  • 4 double-sided enemy boards
  • 1 citadel board with rotating catapult tile
  • 1 Seasons Sheet
  • 1 Cards Sheet
  • 1 Avatar of the Abyss token with plastic stand

This project will fund on Tuesday, May 19, 2015.  For more information and to support this project, visit the Kickstarter page here.

Burgle Bros is a cooperative heist boardgame where players use unique powers to avoid guards, navigate alarms and get out!

Tim Fowers (Wok Star, Paperback) brings us a new Kickstarter project, Burgle Bros. – A Cooperative Heist Boardgame.  Like Ocean’s 11 and The Italian Job, players will use stealth, planning, a little bit of luck work together to assemble their crew, make a plan, and pull off the impossible.

Burgle Bros. actually feels like a heist.  The team will make a plan, and if something goes wrong, you’ll be able to help other out of the sticky situation using unique special abilities.  Guards will get in your way, and an innovative movement system makes them somewhat predictable and partially deductible.  You’ll need to be sneaky and push carefully to the climactic ending, where you’ll have to get to the roof to escape or all is lost.

The Burgle Bros. team is made up of elite professionals, each with a unique special ability:

  • Acrobat – A Retired Performer, moves through the guards.
  • Spotter – A Psychic Gone Rogue, looks at guard’s next patrol.
  • Juicer – The Electronics Expert, triggers alarms remotely.
  • Hawk – The Recon Pro, peeks far away for free.
  • Rook – The Mastermind – moves other players.
  • Hacker – The Computer Guy, hacks from anywhere on a floor with wifi.
  • Raven – A Maverick Falconer, distracts the guard with her crow.
  • Rigger – A Tinkerer Savant, has dynamite to blow up walls.
  • Peterman – Combinatorics Expert, Cracks safes and keypads.

This game is for 1-4 players and plays in 45 – 90 minutes.  This project has a primary funding goal of $10,000, and over $38,000 has currently been raised.  This project will fund on Saturday, April 4, 2015.

bad landsGangfight Games is currently running a Kickstarter for Bad Lands: Curse of the Skinwalker.  Bad Lands is a co-op western horror survival game in which heroes are fighting to save the town of Blackwater Gulch from a pack of hideous were-things such as Jackalopes, Chupacabras, Werebears, Werewolves, and other nightmarish beasts.

Players will select the hero they wish to play, or players may design their own characters to play.  As players move through the town defeating monsters, they can pick up loot that is either lying around or is dropped by slain beasties.  Loot such as an old revolver, silver bullets, or a fancy gun belt can not only aid in helping heroes bring down these creatures, but also gives the heroes experience points (XP) in which to improve their characters.

Bad Lands offers a survival mode and an adventure mode, in which a player can serve as Gamemaster and take the heroes on a campaign.

Bad Lands is for 1-4 players and includes the following in the core set:

  • 8 hero cards and pawns
  • 6 heavy-duty, linen-coated board tiles
  • 28 encounter cards & villain pawns
  • 64 loot cards
  • 6 6-sided dice
  • 36 plastic pawn stands
  • Dozens of tokens
  • Full-color rulebook

Bad Lands: Curse of the Skinwalker has a primary funding goal of $25,000, and currently $3,792 has been raised.  The finding date is March 3, 2015.  For more information about this project visit the Kickstarter page HERE.
