Starling Games has launched a Kickstarter campaign for the first expansion to A War of Whispers, which was published last year. The expansion, A War of Whispers: Dark Alliances,  is designed by the original games designer, Jeremy Stoltzfus.  The artists are the same as for the original game as well, Tomasz Jedruszek and Dann May.  Just as with the original game, the expansion plays 2-4 players, ages 14 and up, in about 30-60 minutes.

A War of Whispers is a competitive game of intrigue using area control as its main mechanism.  In the game, players control a secret society, behind the scenes, trying to establish itself while manipulating one of five armies vying for control of the world.  The expansion, A War of Whispers: Dark Alliances, Dark Alliance cards are added to the starting deck.  These cards allow for players to make alliances with each other - but those alliances come at a cost.

Not only does this already funded Kickstarter campaign feature the Dark Alliances expansion, but there is a Collector's Edition of the base game available in addition to a second edition of the base game in a standard edition.  For more information on the base game itself, check out the game page on Starling Games website here.  If you are interested in the Kickstarter campaign for the expansion, Collector's Edition or the second edition of the standard edition of the base game, take a look at it here.
