Medioevo Universalis, now on Kickstarter

January 21, 2017 - 4:09am
For those who feel that tabletop gaming hasn't yet satisfied the experience of epic medieval expansion, 2017 is starting with something you might be interested in. A massive new miniatures game from Giochix.it is now up for funding on Kickstarter right now - Medioevo Universalis. A very ambitious game where 2 to 5 players, but expandable to 9, command armies in a bid for control over all of Europe. Featuring hundreds of minis, tokens, coins, cards, diplomacy, and warfare, Medioevo Universalis is bursting at the seams to deliver on it's hefty price tag. Here's a brief description from the Kickstarter page:  "Players will lead one of the great medieval kingdoms of the thirteenth century by developing an intricate commercial network, advancing its technology, and weaving diplomatic relations with the other players. A number of possible adverse events can occur: natural disasters, and barbarians that will hinder military conquests or the creation of an empire. The list of all the stuff in the box, and all that you can do in the game and with so many participants is impressive to say the least. The civilization-building elements are definitely intruiging, so it'll be worth checking out the rulebook once it's posted to the campaign page to see how it all really "ticks". That said, plenty of eager gamers are enticed by what is on offer, as Medioevo Universalis is well beyond it's funding goal across the three platforms from which it is available. Be sure to check out their campaign page for more information and updates from Giochix.it about this huge new contender in the dark-aged miniatures arena.
