August 13, 2017: Crowdfunding Focus - A Song Of Ice & Fire: Tabletop Miniatures Game
It's Sunday, and for many people (myself included), that means a new Game of Thrones episode is on. However, I'll also be watching a different game: Cool Mini or Not's A Song of Ice & Fire: Tabletop Miniatures Game on Kickstarter. It's made over a million dollars, and still climbing, but there are some amazing models yet to be unlocked.
The game is based on the novels by George R.R. Martin, so you may notice the artwork has a bit more of a painted style versus the television series. However, even if you eschewed the books for the show, many of your favorite characters will take the field . . . or work behind the scenes. One of the unique elements of the game is its use of Non-Combat Units, on their own intrigue board. This board will provide your forces with additional powers and strategies, and gives players a way to utilize characters whose lack of combat prowess makes them hard to translate onto a battlefield.
Ultimately, though, the miniatures are what you're here for, and there are a ton. I mean, it's in the company name, right? Starks, Lannisters, mercenaries, and even 3-D terrain and playmats adorn the campaign, through pledges or add-ons.
If you're interested in pledging, back soon, because it ends shortly. Watch their video for a bit more detail on how to play if you need some convincing.
Just remember; in the game of thrones, you win or you die.
