Wouldn't mind seeing them have a terrain and map KS for 28mm superhero and zombie games.

 

Anyway, live session going on right now!

I just now realized how much I need a giant exclamation point miniature.  Because reasons.

 

Edit: in the comments, it looks like they are running demos in my area this weekend.  I can stop by and report back how it looks/plays.

I'd be more impressed if the 'Kidlovestigergames' website wasn't just a parked GoDaddy domain, and all their other dealings seems to be on FarceBook.

(The parked page seems to have had the title 'The World of Wayword' )

Also, no pledge level for just the minis.

 

As far as earlier Kickstarters, it might be prudent to study Beast Masters, the Dice Placement Game(on KS), Legends of the Mist(another KS) and Hunters: Enter the Darkness(yet another KS).  These are all by Chris Peach, but as the verified ID behind both that name and the Kid Loves Tiger Games name is Erica Wiebusch, I think they need to be considered, also. (Nope, haven't studied those older KS Projects, but the Hunters game looks as if it has some neato minis... )

I got some pictures of the prototype game at Con of the North yesterday:

I think the models would benefit from basing on something heavier like a metal washer, as small table bumps can topple trees / fire hydrants / lamps.

 

For the game itself, it has all the standard superhero stuff I'd expect.  Running up the side of a building and pushing another dude off the top, throwing trucks at people, big dude bowling over the top of several smaller dudes, etc.  And some silly stuff like getting soda from a vending machine to get caffeined up for extra actions.

 

The game moves really quickly. Characters get 4-6 actions per turn all of which can be used for movement or attacks, so you can all out run 15+ squares in a turn, or unleash a multiple attacks, or line up knockback chain reactions, etc, all pretty easily.  Special powers unique to each character are listed on their card.  Tokens for damage or status effects can go on the character card to keep the play area less cluttered.

Since I liked the look of the game and wanted to spread the word I also started a thread on my other favourite forum Dakkadakka, and some information has come up over there that raised possible concerns over this project

 

i'd urge anybody interested in backing read over the thread here https://www.dakkadakka.com/dakkaforum/posts/list/750823.page and make up their own minds if it's a risk they want to take

 

(i'm sure this is a real game they want to make and that it would be fun, i'm less sure the driving force behind it is who it initially appeared to be and therefore the risks might be higher than I first thought)

Thanks for the link. Will wait for retail instead. My brother was backing, he dropped the pledge since he no longer feels comfortable with the information provided.

      Just a fun little surprise I happened across earlier.  No pictures of the dice and it's ending today, but some really nice ones on their store and I've friends who own some so I thought I'd give it a go.

      About
      Welcome to the Great Wall draft page – the campaign is not live yet, but we will be gradually adding more and more information about the game here! We are incredibly excited to hear your feedback, so please let us know what you think. If it looks interesting to you - make sure to click the "Notify me on launch" button!
      The Great Wall is a new major board game from Awaken Realms (creators of Nemesis, Tainted Grail, Etherfields and many other acclaimed products). Players will take the roles of generals of an ancient oriental empire who lead the defence against ruthless hordes. You will need to gather allied advisors, manage your workers, recruit armies and, together with other players, raise and defend the Great Wall! As the game progresses, you will often need to co-operate or negotiate with other players, but make no mistake – there can be only one winner!
      This fresh worker (and soldier!) placement game for 1-4 players faces them with many difficult choices and often pushes them to interact with each other. You will be assigning your workers to eleven different locations, such as Tea House, Quarry, Messenger Post, or Barracks, using special Command cards that have additional effects. Production in locations activates ONLY when all their slots are filled, but filling them all by yourself can result in a penalty. On top of that, players can buy overseers who will give additional output every time a location becomes activated. This creates a lot of involving long- and short-term strategies.
       Each player starts with one unique General, characterized by their asymmetric power, as well as the production level. From there, you will further customize your economic engine and fine-tune your strategy by recruiting advisors who provide additional bonuses.
      Eventually, a Wall Defence phase beings, where players place previously build armies on Horde Cards – earning Honor (Victory points) and looting resources from the defeated troops. This requires smart management of three types of units: Archers, Spearmen and Cavalry. Players place these soldiers one by one, playing the Tactics cards that create another layer of interaction.
      Gain meditation by shooting with the Zen Archer, then spend meditation on a Cavalry Squad Leader to move your Cavalry around the battlefield faster, and – finally – finish off by getting extra Honor for each of the Cavalry’s engagements thanks to the Banner Holder. There are endless possibilities for great combos and memorable plays.
      On top of that, your Advisors and General might give your troops extra abilities, such as shooting twice or looting twice the resources!
      All of the above makes the Great Wall one of our most strategically involving designs that will be appreciated by many different groups of players: those who love euro-styled games with their intricate economies and engine-building, those who love over-the-table play, bargaining and negotiations – and finally, those who simply like to wage war on a beautiful map.
