Tabletop Gaming News (TGN) has an excellent preview of ‘The Others: 7 Sins‘ by Cool Mini Or Not and Guillotine Games. The Others is miniatures game designed by Eric Lang who brought us huge hits like Marvel Dice Masters and Arcadia Quest as well as the soon to be released Blood Rage. It is a horror board game that plays 2-5 players in a 1 vs. many format. One player will play one of the 7 Deadly Sins (Lust, Gluttony, Greed, Sloth, Wrath, Envy, Pride) trying to trigger the Apocalypse while the other players are a team of supernatural heroes trying to save the day.
In this game, the 7 Sins have become hideous monsters incarnate. These monsters attempt to destroy cities and wreak havoc. In the game, players are the last bastion for humanity in these cities. Each “Sin” monster (of 7 different deadly sins) plays a little bit differently. One player plays as the monsters with the goal of corrupting the city, and advancing the doomsday tract. Other players attempt to dispel the contamination of evil, but the power they use has a corrupting factor.
In the article they start to delve into two of the sins Pride and Sloth as well as some of the minions you’ll see in the game. They have pictures of the models which are fantastically hideous and disgusting. While we’ve only gotten a glimpse of it the artwork in the game looks stunning as well and is done by Adrian Smith (lead designer/artist), Karl and Stefan Kopinski, Paolo Parente, Richard Wright, Jacopo Camagni, Miguel Coimbra and Georges Clarenko.
The Others will be on Kickstarter starting 9/10/2015 and if CMoN’s and Guillotine Games other projects are any indication it will be a huge hit. I for one am extremely excited about it and will most likely be backing it. The combination of horror theme, Eric Lang, and CMoN/Guillotine Games miniatures has me itching to hit the pledge button. Eric Lang is on fire with his amazing games that have come out recently and if there is one thing that both these companies do well it’s putting out great miniatures. Add in the fact that the horror theme is somewhat missing in my collection and I have always been a fan of the genre this should be a win/win/win for me.
