HOARDERS is a competitive 2 player board game that pits a band of Dwarves, bent on recovering the lost treasure of King Dorum, against an enormous and greedy Mountain Troll. The game plays anywhere from 20-40 minutes, where-in the Dwarves strive to recapture the Relic of the Iron Peak and the covetous Troll defends HIS treasure at any cost.

Long ago, King Dorum sent away the Relic of the Iron Peak Dwarves to aid their kin in a far off land. En route, the Relic and the treasure with it was stolen by a filthy Mountain Troll. The Relic was considered lost, until now… King Dorum’s son, Khorum, now rules the Iron Peak Dwarves and he has sent his bravest warriors and lancers to recover the Relic from the vile creature’s lair.

A brave band of Dwarven Lancers and Warriors storm forth from the Iron Peak to raid the Troll’s lair, where they will kill the troll, steal back their treasures and reclaim their birth right, the Relic.

As the enormous, smelly, Mountain Troll, you will control its huge feet and powerful Hammer. The Troll needs to fend off the greedy dwarves to protect his treasure hoard. Did we mention Dwarves are good eatin'?!

  • The Dwarves must recover all three Treasure piles (fairly hard)
  • The Dwarves must recover the Relic that was stolen, but it's in which Treasure pile? The Troll doesn't even know!
  • The Dwarves are after the Relic, but this time the Troll knows exactly where it is.

$30 for actual pewter lances!? This is a very confusing project. Everything looks very professionally done except including toothpicks as stand ins for miniature lances in the base game. That killed the project for me.

It's a well known fact that trolls keep their treasure tucked in between their teeth.

How much would it cost to just buy 7 dwarf spear guys from Reaper + 2 Dwarf hero types + a nice big troll?

I sorta get that the troll is partly abstracted and is much larger than these dwarfs...

 

...wonder what the biggest troll or giant made by Reaper would be.

It looks like part of the gameplay involves removing the lances from the models at various points...

Well, there are a few other hiding spots, but picks generally help with those, too.

 

 

 

Doesn't look like there's a dwarven spearman in Bones, yet. How odd. Might prevent the cheapness of coming at it sideways like that.

Oddly enough, there are quite a few historical lines that don't include spears and leave it to the modeller to come up with copper wire or whatever.  But yeah this appears to be a game mechanic, based on the description.

I was thinking of the Kragmarr Warlord faction spear-dwarf. He is metal, rather than bones. Seven of him would be $42 dollars.

When looking at the Kickstarter... I didn't see anything about toothpicks now. Wonder if it got changed.

 Maybe...

5x Reaper Kagmarr spear-dwarfs @ $6 each is $30.  So, 5 entire dwarfs AND spears...  thirty bucks.
