Mouse Guard Comic Soon to be a Board Game
July 9, 2014 - 10:55am
Mouse Guard has been around as a comic, from David Petersen. Well David and Luke Crane (from The Burning Wheel) are developing a lite-strategy game based upon the comic and it's presently on Kickstarter. "Swords & Strongholds is a game invented by David Petersen for his Mouse Guard graphic novels. Recently, he asked Luke Crane (of Burning Wheel and the Mouse Guard RPG) to come up with some rules for the game and so we did! We developed a light strategy game for two players that takes 10 to 20 minutes time per game. It's exactly the sweet spot we hoped for—a game you can play while you're sitting at the June Alley Inn listening to tales, or when you're waiting for your friends to arrive for a game night, or when you're waiting in long lines at comicons!" The game, as of this writing, has nearly met its funding goal with 29 days left in the campaign. To learn more as well as fund the project you can visit the Kickstarter page here.
