rampaging jotunn

Lost Cog would like to announce their current project to fund a new two-player Viking-themed strategy board game that “pits players in a competitive contest of tactics and supremacy.”  The objective of the game is to survive the Jotunn’s Rampage by influencing the Jotunn towards your opponents’ armies and villages.

Players will each control three villages and two Viking armies, and will be using their armies to protect their own villages while attacking their opponents’ villages.  As they do this, the Rampaging Jotunn is the real threat as he moves across the island destroying everything he touches.

The game is easy to learn, but with deep strategy, and has high replay value due to its modular board that changes with each play.  The game has been in development for 6 years, and has received extensive play testing.

Queen Games is currently running a Kickstarter project for the fourth expansion for the game Kingdom Builder by Donald X. Vaccarino: Harvest.

This new expansion features the following additions to the game:

  • 4 new board quadrants
  • Some Castles replaced with Silos
  • 16 location cards with 8 new abilities and 8 new summary cards
  • 6 new Kingdom Builder cards

A new terrain type is featured on the new board quadrants, Farmland.  This new terrain type is difficult to settle, and requires special actions to do so.  The eight new location types include the Bazaar (reuse one of your abilities on the same turn), Cathedrals (decide whether to take a chip or return any number of chips and place that many extra settlements on the current terrain) and the Cabin (allows you for one turn to place two neutral scouts on the board, adjacent to one of your settlements).  Some of the Castles have been replaced with Silos, adding new twists to the end-of-game scoring.  Lastly, six new Kingdom Builder cards have been added: Mayors, Halfling, Adventure, Rangers, Innkeeper, and Rovers.

This project includes various pledge levels, including options for the Kingdom Builder Big Box set.  This project will fund on Friday, March 18, 2016.  For more information on this project and to support it, visit the Kickstarter page here.
