Pelotology

A new strategy dueling card game is raising funds on Kickstarter from self-publisher Pelotology, called Village of Legends.  Players take control of heroes with unique skill sets, stats, abilities, and weaknesses, but will be able to strengthen their heroes throughout the game by earning experience (XP) and buying various enhancements from a market in the form of cards for the player’s deck.

Some of these items include:

  • weapons and heavy weapons that damage players around the table;
  • wandering monsters that may be sent to attack other players;
  • spells that may be cast once a player earns enough XP; and
  • treasure chests worth money to buy additional items.

One or two expansions can be added onto the base game, each including 2 new heroes and additional monsters to battle for XP.  Check out the full campaign, including how to go Berserk! from drinking beer, here.  The campaign is set to end on May 31, 2017, and delivery is estimated for September 2017.
