Funded in under 4 hours on Kickstarter with over 20 Stretch Goals smashed already, the ‘Gloom of Kilforth Expansions’ Kickstarter campaign is the relaunch of the acclaimed Fantasy Quest Game from Hall or Nothing Productions Ltd. The game’s first printing sold out within weeks of landing in summer this year, and is now back with French and German translations as well. Whilst this is a chance for gamers who missed out the first time around to pick up a copy of the original game, there is also a tonne of expansion content for the thousands of existing owners to get their hands on too, with Pimped Up components, and a small box expansion “Encounters” which is growing in content every day, with the funding goal more than tripled already…
The land of Kilforth is a perilous domain filled with nefarious monsters, mysterious strangers and treacherous locations. At the heart of Kilforth is the Sprawl, a huge city where intrepid heroes begin their journey to fame and fortune. Over the coming month, a deadly ‘gloom’ will descend on the world, through which the heroes must battle to prove their worth, defeat a primordial evil, and save the land from darkness.
Playable competitively, cooperatively, or solo, Gloom of Kilforth: A Fantasy Quest Game is a game of high fantasy with a gothic edge, where 1-4 players assume the roles of heroes on a journey through a dark world of magic and peril. They will visit strange places, meet stranger people, solve mysterious quests, and defeat powerful enemies in their mission to discover ancient artefacts and mystical spells. Each player follows their hero’s tale, an epic saga from modest beginnings through to a climactic battle against evil that will decide the fate of the world.
Boasting epic fantasy gameplay from award nominated designer Tristan Hall, with over 300 unique cards, hundreds of pieces of world-class art, hundreds of wooden and cardboard tokens, and a haunting original sound-track, Gloom of Kilforth: A Fantasy Quest Game is a game unlike any other. Don’t miss out on this chance to join the adventure and immerse yourself in the Gloom of Kilforth…

A Kickstarter campaign focusing on terrain for a game that won’t exist until next year? Doesn’t make much sense I suppose but let’s face it, if you’re reading this you at least have an interest in buying Star Wars: Legion from FFG. And for many of you, maybe you’ve already placed your pre-order (we have).
MDF terrain is relatively easy to produce but it takes time. So we wanted to get a good jump on production and use this time now at the end of the year to (hopefully) fund a successful Kickstarter campaign, produce everything, ship it all, and have it in your hands well before the arrival of the actual product. And they were built at a friendly scale to work well with other games in the meantime.
Also, you may have noticed this is “Part 1″ – doing this now will also give us time to create more terrain for the upcoming “Part 2″ and “Part 3,” which backers will help be a major part in shaping.
Zombie Doctor is a fun and frantic card-turning game. Amputate, reattach and swap limbs in a desperate bid to stay alive. It’s your turn not to turn!
The game is designed for 2-4 players (preferably 4), lasts for around 60 minutes and is suitable for ages 15+, due to the comic zombie gore.
It’s small enough to fit in your pocket and is suitable to play at parties or if you have a spare hour with friends and family.
The game is easy to learn but the elements of luck and strategy will keep avid board gamers entertained and challenged.
Push Your Luck is a fun and exciting ‘challenge’ game for adults. It is based on a Casino, however you don’t need to know anything about Casinos to enjoy this game and WIN!!
Push your Luck is a game of skill and tactics with a fair amount of luck thrown in.
There are two possible endings to the game – either be the last player standing, having successfully forced your fellow competitors out of the game by taking all their money, or be the first to have won £500,000.
The game involves the players all of the time, it is full of energy and creates rivalry, vendetta’s and petulance – ALL IN THE NAME OF FUN. It brings out the worst in us all …….but in a great way. You can work out your own approach and find the SMART way to come out on top.
Legendary Dungeons & Dragons® game author Frank Mentzer presents his own fantasy world, 40 years in the making!
Philadelphia PA, 1978: Singles and spouses gather to tell stories together in a game that has run for 2 years, half as old as the rules themselves. These are the new Role Players, choosing cooperative games over competition. They love the epic tales from Frank’s D&D® game…fun and exciting, the dawn of an era!
Lake Geneva, 1983: Working at TSR, publisher of the game, Frank writes the D&D “Red Box” set and a full line thereafter, selling tens of millions of copies in 14 languages.
Near Lake Geneva, 2017: After a lifetime of gaming experience, the creator of that original campaign offers it for everyone’s use.
Loxley inc proudly presents—Frank Mentzer’s Worlds of Empyrea.
Far across the great Ocean lies the new world… birthplace of the original people, full of history, as old as the Sea Mother herself. It is heroic adventure, despair and hope, tragedy and victory! But its future will soon be the target of great forces, with results that extend beyond the planet.
Taiko is a fast-paced Samurai card game with an easy-to-learn set of original rules, designed with subtle layers of chance and strategy.
The year is 1575, and you are one of many wealthy Daimyo dreaming of uniting the broken Japanese country under your own sovereign thumb. You are confident in your troops’ superior loyalty, and your own skill to defend your castle and outmaneuver your opponents!
The clanking feet of your armiesare deftly coordinated to the sound of secret patterns pounded on massive Taiko Drums set high above the battlefield. As you survey the soldiers moving in the valleys below, the taste of glory seems almost as real as the tang of salty wind from the Japanese Sea. Nothing will stand in your way!
Pre-printed maps are great. They offer a level of detail that just doesn’t come from hand drawn maps. But they’re creased, don’t store easily, and can be expensive. That’s when the idea for the Lazy Gamer spawned.
The plexi-glass top holds the maps in place, the fold-able legs provide different levels of play, and the lid makes for easy in and out of the maps. But the best piece of all is the lazy susan.
Swing the maps around with a smooth motion that won’t move your pieces and pawns around so everyone has access to the whole battlefield. Also, we made sure that standard bottles would fit under the table when the legs are up.
A full-color M&M sourcebook bringing the heroes, villains, and locations of Jacob Blackmon’s “Super Powered Legends” world to you!
Welcome to the world of Super Powered Legends!
In 2015, rpg artist and writer Jacob E. Blackmon began to create a super-heroic universe featuring iconic characters for use with the 3rd Edition Mutants & Masterminds rpg by Green Ronin Publishing. Over the last two years, there have been over 100 PDFs produced featuring over 180 heroes and villains to fill this world of wonder.
And now, Rogue Genius Games is collecting these PDFs into one massive tome: The Super Powered Legends Sourcebook!
At its base funding level, the Sourcebook will feature all heroes and villains from every Super Powered Legends product — including the Disaster Day! adventure — up to date. In addition, the Sourcebook will feature information about using each character as a hero or villain respectively.
As stretch goals are reached, the Sourcebook will expand to include additional information about different locations within the Super Powered Legends universe. This includes familiar countries like the United Kingdom, Romania, and China; and how these nations have changed to accommodate the existence of super-powered beings in their borders. Other locations include hidden worlds on Earth, such as the sunken nation of Atlantis and the mysterious City of Monsters: Agartha. Beyond Earth, exists interstellar beings of cosmic power and high adventure. These alien worlds will also be expanded upon with additional stretch goal funding.

Spookie and the Ghosts failed, now even more, guests are coming to stay at their hotel, and these ones are really odd…
Ghostel is the award-winning family board game successfully funded on Kickstarter in 2016. Between us, 505 backers and a slew of amazing reviewers we were able to bring this spooky, semi-cooperative area control game of cards and dice to (un)life and even managed to add extra content with some stretch goals unlocked in the last few days.
Since Ghostel was released we’ve had a lot of requests for extra content from fans of Ghostel who want to see what else we have up our spooky sleeves. During the first campaign we hinted at a further two expansions that could have been unlocked as stretch goals that we didn’t quite reach. So amidst this clamouring we’ve returned to Kickstarter to raise funds to get that extra content out to you lovely fright-game enthusiasts!
This campaign gives you the opportunity to get your hands on two new expansions for the game, adding extra guests with weird behaviours and bonuses. Plus, we’ve added the option to get additional ghosts and dice in a variety of colours to allow you raise the player count of Ghostel from four players to a maximum of six players!
A card picking game; practice your telepathic, mind reading and poker face skills – all while tryin’ to keep away Balzie’s..
Yakronyms is a fast and fun game where your wit and sense of humor arm you in creating hysterical phrases based on random letters.
What is Yakronyms?
Plain and simple, Yakronyms is an opportunity to be ridiculous with your friends. We’ve been part of many group game nights and wanted to bring something a bit louder, a lot more subjective, and totally personalized to the table. Yakronyms tests your wit and vocabulary like no other game before. Each round provides just 4 letters for you to create a phrase, a “Yakronym,” in 60 short seconds. We think you’ll be surprised at what comes out of your mouth (more often than not.)
Challenge your friends and the wasteland itself in a post-apocalyptic battle for resources. Shoot, ram and wreck your way to victory!

Create your own modular board from the selection of double-sided tiles, producing a new battlefield with every game. Play as one of the factions and drive your convoy out into the Wastes in search of fortune and glory. Occupy salvage tokens and successfully survive the next player’s turn to score points and collect salvage. Played over 4-6 rounds, the player who collects the most salvage tokens by the end wins!

The game is quick to setup and play, it takes around 30 minutes to play a game and comes complete with everything you need.

October Is Here. So Are These Awesome Halloween-Themed Card Games. Boom!
Hello, everyone! If you’re like me, Halloween is one of your favorite holidays of the year! With that in mind, I’ve created a few new Halloween-themed card games that are quick and easy to learn, yet incredibly, addictively, fun to play!
Build up your followers, petition the gods, and lay waste to everyone different from you. It’s imperialistic fun for the whole family!
Petition is a competitive card game for 2 to 6 players, with additional rules for a single-player mode.
In the game, each player builds a society to fortify their culture. When you’re feeling uppity, send your most faithful servant to petition the gods, or defiantly act as a godless heathen, so that you can infiltrate your opponent’s populous. The goal: convert your opponent’s society to your religion, steal your opponent’s economy, crush their military, and eradicate their culture.
This game has – strictly speaking – existed for as long as the human race has. But as a card game, it’s been a homebrew for a year. We printed it on cardstock, and the playtesting with friends and at game conventions has been a blast. Now we’re finally ready to take it to the next level so we can bring our game to the rest of the world’s tabletop. With your help, Petition can have amazing art, an easy-to-follow tutorial video, and professional printing!
Dice Arena is a two player strategic dice game played on a square or hexagonal board. Each player starts out with 16 dice and their goal is to get as many of their dice as they can into the other player’s back row. This is done by moving dice forward/sideways/backwards, jumping over other dice, capturing enemy dice and playing action cards that give dice special abilities. Certain cards allow you to interact with your opponent in other ways, such as stealing one of their cards, or re-rolling one of their dice. The game also features a Rewards Track, which allows you to get things like extra cards and extra dice as you gain more and more points.
For more advanced users, the game offers 4 variants, which give the game a lot of replayability.
The idea for this game came to me in a dream (I am not even kidding). In my dream, I remember I was playing a game of chess, but with dice. After waking up, I almost dismissed the dream as complete nonsense. How can you play chess with dice? But I kept remembering this weird dream and eventually a new game started taking shape. The game went through a few iterations while play-testing with friends and it is now in its final form.
Have a beard? Know someone with a beard? Ever SEEN a beard? Then Beard Wars may be for you!
My name is Michael Murdock, and I am the illustrator/creator of this card game. Being an illustrator, I am always trying to find new ways in order to incorporate my skills. A few months ago, while playing card games with my family, I though to myself “Hey… I could do this.” – So I figured I would give it a shot.
Beard Wars is the result.
The base Beard Wars game has two decks of cards. Each deck is the same, except for the backs (to differentiate the two).
Your goal is to collect as many “Beard Trophies” as possible before your deck runs out. To help you out, there are some modifier cards and modifier beards that will help you along the way.
Our goal is to create the most incredible summertime wargaming scenery – hills with green, lightly sunburned grass, flowers and fruit trees and all the elements you can see when you think of summer out of town.n.
The Summertime terrains are universal – you can use them in historical, modern or fantasy battles.
They are dedicated to 28mm scale but many of them are also very well fit to 20mm (1/72) and even to 15mm (1/100) scale.
These Summertime terrains will be added to our deluxe terrain offer.
Some of the terrains will only be exclusive to the Kickstarter campaign – a special offer providing a wide variety of hills and forests
This project aims to create 28mm figurines intended for the games of figurine such as “KINGS OF WAR”, “9th AGE” or “WARHAMMER”, short of the games says WARGAMES. We can easily find dwarves, men, orks and other salad eaters in various range of figurines but I was remarked that there was no scarecrow pack to be able to make an army easily.
In Mantic’s KING OF WAR game, the scarecrows are an infantry unit of the Nightmares Army, of which there are no figures forcing the world to convert other figures. Now it will no longer be necessary!
I will create modular scarecrow figurines with 5 different bodies 10 different sets of weapons and 2 sets of 5 heads (a theme “pumpkin head” and a theme “head grain bag”) each batch of 20 figurines will therefore comprise :
20 bodies (4 X 5 bodies)
20 sets of weapons (2 X 10 set including 1 standards)
40 heads (4 X 5 pumpkin head + 4 X 5 head grain bag)
This kickstarter aims to fund the molds of these scarecrows (very expensive molds) because I have good idea and hands of fairy, I have pockets empty (very empty pocket) so you feel like like me to see scarecrow invade the game tables help me. even 1 euro is always that.
A big thank you from me and a grimace of pumpkins!
Enter a bold new political fantasy. It is a world where magick has returned. Empires, long ascendant, have recently crumbled under their own weight and bureaucracy. The line between chaos and opportunity has become razor thin.
Power players big and small take advantage of the changing political winds, and the return of magick. Each of the continent’s factions create alliances, and break them just as easily. Deals and treaties made under the cover of intrigue result in the discovery of powerful secrets.
All of this occurs against the backdrop of a prophecy of doom. Will Aurantor’s multiple factions set aside their differences and prevent global catastrophe? Or will they instead continue their infighting and politicking? Meanwhile, how will the gears of state, trade, nation, and religion affect each individual player on the world stage?
How will magick, newly-restored to Aurantor, change the continent and its power dynamics? How will this magick change the continent’s inhabitants in body, mind, and soul?
Will magick be able to stand its own against the emerging consensus that the natural laws of the world can be observed, measured, and understood without the need to resort to mysticism?
Aughmoore is in ruins. The evil could not be contained and its darkness has spread to every region of the world. Shattering villages and infecting all forms of life. There has never been a more dire need for Heroes. Everyone who remains must rise up, must unite, and must risk everything to preserve what little spirit remains.
