Arrrrrrrrre you ready for a new miniatures game from Cool Mini or Not?  Described as a MOBA (Multiplayer Online Battle Arena) style game, Rum & Bones pits 2-6 pirate crews against each other to battle for Davey Jones's legendary treasure:

Rum & Bones is a miniatures board game where players control fantastic pirate crews engaged in fierce combat. Inspired by MOBA style video games, Rum & Bones’ gameplay is deep, fast-paced, and highly strategic. The game pits two pirate factions, controlled by 2 to 6 players, whose ships are locked in combat, with each crew attempting to board the enemy ship and disable it.

Each ship’s single-minded crew of Deckhands and Bosuns charge headlong across the gangplanks to attack key deck features on the enemy ship. These lowly crewmen are not directly controlled by the players. They form a constantly-replenishing mob of pirates charging towards the enemy, but the crews are evenly matched, so it’s up to the player-controlled Heroes to shift the tide of battle!

The game funded successfully in only 30 minutes after launching and is well on its way to blowing through its  stretch goal.  Included in the game are 70 miniatures, 20 base inserts, 8 dice, over 70 cards, over 100 tokens, and 15 tiles.  Cool Mini or Not has successfully funded over a dozen Kickstarter projects  in the past, including Xenoshyft, Zombicide, Kaosball, Super Dungeon Explore, and more.
