The new Monsterpocalypse Board Game Kickstarter from Mythic Games and Privateer Press is now live and going great guns! This gives you an alternative way to dive into the monster-smashing mayhem of the existing miniatures game.

This take on Monsterpocalypse introduces you to this smash-fest from a board game perspective. At its core, Monsterpocalypse is a one-versus-one affair but the board game that you can snag from Kickstarter allows you to play solo and with up to four players, either competitively or cooperatively if you prefer.

Core Box & Pledges

One of the main things about the big Core Box is that it allows you to dive into Monsterpocalypse with a whole range of options. You're not limited to one Protector and one Destroyer here and there are loads of additional Units that can be used to give your monsters some support.

As well as that, you'll notice that the miniatures now come preassembled (as opposed to the unassembled miniatures from Privateer Press' miniatures game) and in coloured plastic meaning that you can get gaming without having to slap paint on the miniatures. They also come with fully integrated scenic bases which add to the overall look of the figures.

There have also been loads of revamps and improvements to the components and graphic design. Everything has been made more readable at first glance which is great and handy for those coming to the game for the first time.

One of the big additions to the game is the Battle Royale expansion which takes things to three and four-player whilst also introducing the new Apex monsters.

You've also got the Veteran Pledge. This new take on Monsterpocalypse is entirely compatible with the existing miniatures game by Privateer Press so you might have loads of models already. If that is the case, you just need this to get all of the new stuff.

A nifty one I think you'll agree which also shows off what comes in that Battle Royale expansion!

Monsterpocalypse Stretch Goals

As this is a Kickstarter, of course, it is going to come with Stretch Goals. Loads have already been unlocked but the folks at Mythic have quite a few in their back pocket for folks to snag over the period of the campaign.

So, if you've never played Monsterpocalypse before and fancy having a pop at it then this might be a good way to get stuck into the game. If you've been playing the Privateer Press miniatures game for a while then this offers up a chance to get some new models for your collection.

The Rules for the game are available to download HERE so if you'd like to find out how it plays, make sure to give them a read. You can also watch some of the Let's Plays over on their Kickstarter page to see everything in action.

Which of the monsters is your favourite?
