We talked about the Kickstarter and what it offers HERE earlier in the week and we'll take a peek at what the folks at Blacklist Games are offering to those who back the project right now. We start with the way that this fundraiser has been split up and indeed how it can be combined.

Dire Alliance Game & Miniatures - Blacklist Games

Dire Alliance Game & Miniatures // Blacklist Games

On the one hand, you have the Dire Alliance game subtitled Horror which is a one-to-four player board game experience which was crafted by David Thompson, Trevor Benjamin, Adam Sadler and Brady Sadler. The game can be played in either Battle Mode where two players go up against each other with their own faction of heroes and minions or in Raid Mode where one-to-four players work cooperatively against an AI-controlled opponent and their minions before they can complete their assigned goals.

Dire Alliance Board Game Pledge

This all comes together as part of this pledge here which gets you the core game of Dire Alliance: Horror with the boards, cards tokens and more that you need to play the game.

The focus behind the game is the use of deck-building mechanics as you build up your crew and fight to take down your foes. If you're interested in delving in and learning more about the game then you can download the Dire Alliance Rulebook and see what it's all about!

As well as being able to just watch some videos and read the rulebook, you can also check out a demo version of the game through Tabletop Simulator in both its Battle and Raid mode. If this game already has you interested then you have plenty of ways to learn more about it.

Horror Series 1 Pledge

As well as picking up the game pledge above you can also snap up the miniatures in a set called Horror Series 1. These miniatures are available separately from the board game so you can pick these up for your skirmish games, roleplaying games and more.

As you can see, there are a lot of different miniatures in this set which allows you to dive in and get started with something spooky on the tabletop. You get a bunch of the minions and loads of awesome characters who can lead the way during your adventures on the tabletop.

In a neat spin on things, you can also use these Horror Series miniatures in your games of Dire Alliance. You can move your tokens and such aside and instead use these miniatures to play out the action of the game on the tabletop.

All of this is available right now on Kickstarter and if you're interested in exploring more about the Dire Alliance world and the miniatures then you can watch out for an interview with Blacklist Games which will be on the site soon!

Are you tempted to dive in and check out this campaign?
