Ninja All-Stars from Soda Pop Miniatures and Ninja Division has appeared on Kickstarter and it’s already doing very well for itself! If you like the idea of chibi-style ninjas facing off against each other in competitive challenges then this is the game for you…
First up we have the ONE pledge level for the game that nets you everything that comes out as stretch goals alongside the main boxed game. As you can see it is a fair mass of stuff with four clans in the base game alongside all the tiles and gubbins.
Shojo’s Shop also shows you the additional characters and such that have been added into the game. One thing you can say about Ninja All-Stars from the off is that they appear to have got the level of quality and consistency down when it comes to these games. All of the models look great and have a great sense of theme. They know what the backers want and bring out projects like this that really keep to their own in-house style.
Above you can see both the various stretch goals that have been unlocked for the game and those that are yet to come. I think my favourite of the ones so far would have to be the massive Oni for the different clans, all of which are looking suitably awesome, especially the purple one. A close second would be Yagyu Jubei who just oozes cool.
Karate Fight is an additional option for those of you wanting some different Ninja All-Stars action with a fast paced card game that previously had an incarnation based on the Takoashi University (also from Soda Pop Miniatures) universe. If you’ve played Slapjack, Egyptian Ratscrew, or Snip-Snap-Snorem – it’s like that!
If you’d like to know how to play the game you can head over to the Kickstarter page where they’ve got a comprehensive run down of the mechanics. I hope that we’ll see a gameplay video in the future however as I think that works ten times better than just having text to read. Mechanics are much more fun to learn when you see them in action!
