Kickstarter Watch – Widower’s Wood

Privateer Press is well known for their very successful Warmachine and Hordes miniatures games. They are in the process of producing a boardgame this time, and have turned to Kickstarter to get some buzz around the game and obviously some money.
Widower’s Wood is a game where you lead a band of monster-heroes on a quest to destroy a menace to your beloved swamp. You can play solo or up to four players and the game takes care of the bad guys.
The miniatures look great. Lots of suitable swamp denizens like croc-people, weird snakes, lizard-men and more. If you go for the Dead Men Walking expansion there will be additional scenarios and, obviously, undead creatures.
The Kickstarter is live to March 19 (or early on March 20 if you live in Europe) and expects to deliver in January 2017. It funded during the first day and is now well into the stretch goals.
Well worth a look!

  1. Looks very interesting...sadly, the Conan RPG kickstarter is going to clean me out for the next month or two!

    1. Hmm, looks like you're a very serious backer...? Secrets of Mount Yishma?

    2. Eek! I wish! Nope...I'm in at Generous GM with plans to pick up a bunch of add-ons.
