A cooperative recreation with good little miniatures.
There is a Banner Saga Miniatures Board Recreation! Or no less than if the Kickstarter marketing campaign kicking off subsequent week (November 12th) is successful.
The sport known as Banner Saga Warbands and is made by the small American firm MegaCon. Warbands has been within the design for a few yr and all prototypes of the miniatures, boards and playing cards are prepared. The objective of the Kickstarter marketing campaign is to lift sufficient cash to completely manufacture it – however we do not but know the way a lot cash it’s going to take.
MegaCon labored with the developer of Banner Saga, Stoic, to seize the spirit of the online game and created what is named an “progressive, collaborative, miniature-based board recreation that addresses the difficulties and penalties of decision-making”. And that is actually all there may be to know in the interim.
The Banner Saga online game makes a terrific board recreation. Fight is grid-based and turn-based, and characters are restricted in each their motion and abilities. So in actual life it should not be troublesome to translate it onto a board. Nonetheless, it stays to be seen how the board recreation will deal with the elements of the sport the place a caravan drives via a frozen tundra and provides dwindle and other people die – and so do the dialogue sections. Possibly it simply will not.
The Banner Saga was as soon as kickstarted and launched in early 2014
