So it begins. Kingdom Death: Monster is NOW finally available for pre-order over on their webstore. The game will be shipping out to backers soon but everyone can now get in on this huge boxed game packed with all manner of insane miniatures, cards, tokens and everything else in between. If you’ve heard of coffin-box games this sounds and looks like a full on crypt…
The game has been a long time coming and the fans have been very paitient indeed. From what we’re seeing right now this looks like it was all worth it however.
So what do you actually get inside this mammoth collection of sprues and cardboard?
- 1 x Rule Book – 11″ x 8.5″ 223 Pages.
- 1 x Showdown Board – 2′ x 3′ ( Heavy 3MM Game Board Matte )
- 1 x Hunt / Settlement Board ( Heavy Cardstock )
- 1 x Token Sheet – 111 Tokens
- 1 x Terrain Token Sheet – 31 Terrain Tiles
- 1 x Monster Controller Panel
- 4 x Gear Grids
- 1 x Character Record Sheet Pad ( 50 Sheets, 6″x6″)
- 1 x Settlement Record Sheet Pad ( 50 Sheets, 8.5″ x 11″)
- 5 x 10 sided black Kingdom Death dice
- 1 x 10 sided white Kingdom Death dice
- 4 x 6 sided Hit location dice
Yep, that’s quite a lot of the basic stuff. That’s just the components too. The full list of actual miniatures is huge with a variety of different monsters, a whole bunch of options for building heroes and plenty more besides. Even the cards have their own HUGE list.
I even like the look of the dice with their nice original designs on them.
Talking of miniatures we should really take a closer look at some of the finished kits that come in the box. Each of these is an almost bespoke piece of engineering and I think I might find myself frightened of putting them together in fear of breaking them or ruining the overall look.
I think you’ll agree that this is probably one of the most high quality products that has ever come out for the tabletop. More than anything this has effectively been a labour of love for the creators and you can tell that by all of the miniatures and the wonderful artwork that has gone into the other components.
So a little more about the game…
“Kingdom Death: Monster is a fully cooperative tabletop hobby game experience. Unite to survive by hunting monsters and collectively guiding the development of your settlement through a 25 year, self-running campaign.
Every choice – from each showdown space moved, each desperately crafted piece of gear, to what Principles your settlement upholds – can have lasting impact on this highly repayable and challenging game experience.”
…so if that has caught your attention you can go and pre-order now with a discount until the 19th of July 2015. After that it will be a bit longer a wait before the game finally arrives in October.
Thanks to @doctorether for the heads up!
