What began as a joke on NBC’s Parks and Recreation TV show is now a reality. Mayfair Games, in partnership with Cone Hill Games, is looking for funding for a deluxe edition of Cones of Dunshire that takes component quality to whole new dimension.
“Everything about this version of the game is designed to be impressive. The multi-level board will be over ten square feet in size, featuring artwork by Jared Blando. There will be more cards than you can shake a handcrafted artisan stick at. There will be components galore, to punch and explore! Imagine yourself punching out five or perhaps six sheets of the finest die-cut chipboard.”
Like in the episode, the game is ludicrously complex with 17 different characters, three different powers per character, plastic gems, metal coins, four sets of dice in two configurations, 48 cones in four different colors, metal miniatures featuring custom bases, and more. If you’re interested in getting in on this unique campaign, head over to the Kickstarter page and pledge your support. You may want to bring an extra credit card just in case.
