Orcs Must Die! (Kickstarter)

I’m reporting on this Kickstarter for two reasons: a) The Backer rewards are great. b) The boardgame developers made Cthulu Wars. Whether you’re a fan of the hit game Orcs Must Die! (available on Steam), Cthulu Wars, or well crafted boardgames and figurines, pay heed to this product!

Robot Entertainment, responsible for the Orcs Must Die! franchise, in collaboration with Sandy Petersen Games, responsible for Cthulu Wars, are bringing forward this tabletop game that has two different editions that can be used against each other. While I am intrigued by being able to take two versions of the game and pitting them against each other, we are assured that these two versions can be played independently of each other.

Their official release states:

“The award winning game Orcs Must Die! has at last made its way to the table top! Orcs Must Die! The Boardgame dares you to preserve your stronghold sieged by orcs. You have traps & weapons galore, and can team up with your friends to obliterate the nasty orcs and their grotesque allies. Robot Entertainment has joined forces with award-winning designer Sandy Petersen to create Orcs Must Die! The Boardgame project. Our new game has been precisely adapted to the tabletop environment. It includes scores of great plastic figures of all your favorite heroes, plus hordes of orcs, crossbow orcs, kobolds, gnolls, trolls, ogres, and more. Build an exciting fortress using our tile-based system, then watch as swarms of baddies plunge through your defenses to wreck your Rift. “


I would also like to note that aside from physical products, backers to the game (which has already surpassed its initial funding goal) can obtain Kickstarter exclusive digital content for the Orcs Must Die! game. And being a fan of heavily detailed miniatures, I’m a moron for the details put into these models.
