Assassins Creed: Brotherhood of Venice – Cult Franchise Goes Cardboard
article by Kick.Agency [2018-11-26]
Triton Noir is a publisher responsible for creating the well rated V-Commando board game series. This time however, they’ve picked a cult video game franchise called Assassin’s Creed to work on. Brotherhood of Venice quickly became a Kickstarter hit, so let’s see what this long awaited game has to offer.

Death in Venice

AC: Brotherhood of Venice is going to be heavily based on the former hit from the publisher, namely: the V-Commandos.

The Assassin’s Creed video game had the focus put on stealthy and silent murders, so the board game won’t be much different. The game was created for 1 to 4 players, who will cooperate as a team of assassins, completing their quests in the Renaissance era Venice.

Monumental Merges a Deck-Builder With a 4X Game
article by Kick.Agency [2018-11-16]
Monumental is a Civilization-style game, that got funded in less than 2 hours. The Kickstarter campaign got board game fans hooked with some bold ideas, interesting concepts, and great presentation.

Monumental is a game, where 1-4 players lead small, budding civilizations. Our task is to lead our people in a way, that lets them become the biggest civilization in the history of mankind. We will have 3 eras to pull that off. Deck building is the core mechanic of Monumental – we begin the game with 14 cards and keep getting new ones. Each one will have a potential to make our civilization stronger. Every nation has different cards, and thanks to that, each specializes in different things, and has separate advantages and disadvantages.

Cloudspire – a Board Game Awaited by Thousands of Players
article by Kick.Agency [2018-10-31]
Tower defense genre of games is incredibly popular on mobile devices. And while the theme of defending your fortress from swarming hordes of enemies sounds like a fantastic idea, board game implementations of it were rare and often lackluster. Cloudspire is supposed to change that. The game has appeared on Kickstarter lately, and is getting close to reaching $500.000.

Cloudspire takes us to the world of Ankar, where a source of mysterious energy is becoming depleted. This energy was a basic resource in Ankar, which is a colossal landmass floating through the skies. War is unavoidable now, and players will join one of the sides of this conflict.

The Edge: Dawnfall Makes a Huge Comeback on Kickstarter
article by Kick.Agency [2018-10-31]
Two years ago, a publisher called Awaken Realms started their campaign to fund a new game by Michał Oracz – The Edge: Dawnfall. Back then they managed to collect half a million pounds, which could easily be called a colossal success. The second campaign topped that number on its first day only!

At the Edge of the World

The Edge: Dawnfall is a dynamic wargame, where (often huge) miniatures, controlled by a deck of cards, play the central part. Fans of direct interaction will feel right at home here. The game is filled with epic duels and lots of competing for territories that hold powerful crystals.

Wild Assent – Two Heavy Games in One Box
article by Kick.Agency [2018-10-17]
Recent miniature based games from Kickstarter often fall into two categories: skirmish games and co-op games. Both types are pretty popular, but the latter usually does a bit better when it comes to funding. The game that we want to talk about today merges both of these genres, while adding a solo mode as the icing on the cake. Meet Wild Assent – a project that will become available on Kickstarter in less than 2 weeks.

Hunters and Arenas

The world, where the action of Wild Assent takes place, suffered from lots of painful changes over the past 30 years. King got murdered by an elf called Veraclea and the whole country is under her rule. Malicious elf took a liking to gladiator battles at the arena. She quickly turned it into one of the most important events in the country, even though most nobles and citizens weren’t as excited about it as her.

article by Kick.Agency [2018-10-10]
Dwar7s is a series of games created by Luís Brüeh, a designer and an artist from Brazil. The franchise is being published by Canadian Vesuvius Media, known mostly for their indie game projects. In October they’re planning a return to Kickstarter, with a new expansion and collector’s edition for Dwar7s Fall. Backers will also get the chance to buy both older core games. So what is the series about?

The Seven Meeple Dwarfs

Fall has come to the kingdom of dwarfs and that can mean only one thing: time to prepare for winter season and all hardships, that come with it. This usually means making lots of food, exchanging gems for food and avoiding becoming monster food yourself.

Getting supplies isn’t your only worry. There are rumors about a certain moody troll wandering around the dwarf settlements. As if you didn’t have enough on your head already…
