Not yet, I'm concentrating on painting the minis first. Board Game Greek might have information on how it plays. 

 

I'm in with an Early Bird. This and Bones 5 are the only kickstarters that I'm backing in the foreseeable future and that dragon is stunning ::o:

Sadly, BGG has a whole bunch of 1 ratings about the company and absolutely no comments about how the game plays.

Has anybody played the first Signum game?

 

I have. It's got You Go I Go activation as opposed to Alternate Activation and a card system that feels very Magic the Gathering. Essentially it feels like MTG but with the miniatures moving around on the table and interacting with each other instead of the more static MTG battlefield.

 

There are two victory conditions. One is by taking out the enemy general, the second is by accumulating Prosperity Points (basically victory points). However Prosperity Points are also what you use to activate cards and build buildings (buildings essentially being land cards). Generally the leader is the easier objective as the 51 point victory is a lot harder to achieve.

 

There are a lot of skills and abilities (similar to Malifaux or Guild Ball) which tend towards the simpler end of the scale but there are so many of them that it feels rather complicated as I've only played a couple of games and need some more to build familiarity.

 

That was a very brief overview. If you'd like something more detailed and specific then please let me know.

Thanks for the quick review.  Very much appreciated.  Think I'll have to consider this one based on the merits of the minis rather than the game - to be safe.

Well, I guess I can always tag one of them early birds while they are available. Just in case there appear to be some amazing stretch goals coming up.

I'm rather in the same boat right now. Grabbing that good value for money early bird is the new equivalent of fence sitting.

Jumped in on the early bird but I do not see a reason to stay for the moment.

Yeah, unless they create a dragon-only pledge that's reasonably priced, I'm not going to worry about it at all. Some gorgeous miniatures, but very few for the price, and I honestly don't care much about getting the game.

Exactly my thoughts, was excited about the dragon, but could not care less about the rest.

      Tomb Guardians over the past year has been asked to release our miniatures in a resin/plastic material because a lot of you do not like metal.  So for nearly a year we have discussed and researched the best way to produce a high quality, high detail miniature that is far above the current standard on the market.  We are happy to announce that we have found a method and decided to release all our 28mm monsters in a High Resolution Resin.  These miniatures will come with a 1 year guarantee, if you break one we will replace it for FREE!  Just mail it back to us.   Bobby Jackson, Jason Weibe, Gene Van Horne and Patrick Keith help create these amazing creatures.  We hope you enjoy our Monsters and want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

      Hi, here is the link to an awesome Kickstarter campaign of a cute band of felines, take a look.

      Story
      I love pop-ups. It never fails to surprise me when a pop-up unfolds into 3D space from seeming nothingness. I hope you guys will have some of the fun that I had when I got to put these together. These kits are part miniature model, part 3d puzzle, and all paper-craft! As you build them, you'll be guided by the instructions and labels found in the kit, and also full instructional walk-through videos where I build them with you step-by-step. I put a lot of work into making sure these designs would work consistently and look good. It makes me happy every time I see them!
      These pop-ups are a great way to fill your table up with neat working terrain that doesn't break the bank and is easy to carry around and store.
      This time around, we are only offering the digital files. That being said, these files are designed to be printed on both A4 and American standard 8.5 x 11 inch letter-sized paper. All of the files (at least those that are completed at the end of the Kickstarter, including the first 5 settings) will be made available to all backers as soon as the Kickstarter funds are distributed to us (Usually within 2 weeks of the project end date).
      After printing, the pages will look something like this:
      You'll need additional supplies such as a hobby knife, double-sided tape, and backing material in order to assemble your pop-ups.  Once you put them together, you will be able to combine them into fantastic miniature worlds!
      Our initial funding goal will cover the design of the first five settings and one flat terrain peice. These will include the Mageboat, the Market Square, the Traveler's Wagon, the Castle Wall, Charlie's Castle, and the Mysterious Grate Flat Hex. 
       Mageboat
      The Mageboat is a watercraft designed to be steered and propelled by magical means. At a 28mm scale it would measure 50 feet from bow to stern. Take your adventures to the high seas with this sturdy vessel!
       Market Square
      At the Market Square, you can find food, drink, weapons, and a host of other curios. This is probably where that stolen painting wound up, now coated in a thick layer of dust, after nearly 2 decades.
       Traveler's Wagon
      The travelers are the continent's most prolific traders, and are always a welcome sight. But this cart seems to have been left unattended. Its team of horses and usual occupants are mysteriously missing. It was probably the giant ants. Again. Yes . . . that was what happened.
       Castle Wall
      The castle wall is the perfect place to hatch a "storming the castle" plot. All you need is a wheelbarrow and a holocaust robe. You probably already have both! Print out and assemble 6 copies of the castle wall and you'll have yourself a stronghold!
      Charlie's Castle
      Charlie's castle is a very small castle (more of a fort really) that is mostly used as a customs checkpoint these days. It's fortunate that you adventurers came along, you can clear out the tribe of goblins that have set up camp within its walls. 
       Mysterious Grate Flat Hex
      Not technically a pop-up, this hex tile provides some space for your characters to cross on their way to somewhere else. Because is it really a journey if no one journeys? Also, what's going on with that mysterious ground hole?
      We are excited about making as many pop-up settings as we can to be included in this kit! That's why we are going to keep adding more stretch goals as these ones are met. Our current plan is that every additional thousand dollars pledged to the kickstarter adds a setting to the digital kit!
      CORRUPTED SHRINE: $3000 Stretch Goal
      This shrine honors the great philosophers and scientific minds that together founded the Elipsiconian council. Unfortunately, the shrine has lately become the site of several unexplained deaths. It's up to you to discover it's dark secrets! (This setting is a redesign using the basic structure of the Gazebo from our previous Pop-up Kickstarter.)
      WATERFRONT FLAT HEX (Unpictured): $4000 Stretch Goal
      This flat hex serves as a transition from land to water. Here you can fish, swim, and relax as you prepare to head back into the nearby ruins.
      LONE TOWER (Unpictured): $5000 Stretch Goal
      This lonely tower is where the orcish sniper is holed up, shooting hapless travelers as they move along the nearby roadway. You guys should head up there and make sure he (OR SHE! Petra asks why it couldn't be a female orcish sniper. Girls can be snipers too!) is stopped. 
      As we reach these goals, more will be added to the kickstarter. We already have some pretty awesome stuff planned, but we also want your suggestions for the terrain you'd like to see in the set!
      We are excited to get these pop-up files completed and have them in your hands so you can make them too! 
      Risks and challenges
      Because the focus of this kickstarter is the creation of digital files, there will be very little that can go wrong. That being said, we could get sick or something. That could cause some delays. As with all digital files, backers might have difficulty opening and printing .pdf files on their end. We will do everything we can to ensure that backers can access and use the files from this kickstarter to make some awesome pop-ups.

      I know there were people on here loving this project when it went live in July.  It got cancelled then, but it's back and could use some support.  Let's get it funded this time around!!!

      They're coming to get you, Barbara...
       
      "Night of the Living Dead: A Zombicide Game, a new standalone addition to the Zombicide franchise, will bring two great horror franchises together. The George A. Romero movie set the standard for zombie movies. Meanwhile, Zombicide set the standard for cooperative zombie-fighting games. Both were filled with groundbreaking innovations. Bringing the two together has brought more innovations to bear. In this article, we’re taking a look at some of the new elements in Zombicide that make it a loving homage to the movie that started it all. ... For example, the game’s tiles recreate not only the interior of the house, but also the surrounding land. Fans of the movie will see that the house has been lovingly recreated in detail and they’ll be able to pick out specific elements from the film on the game board. This recreation has been updated with Zombicide’s usual movement system, with different spaces delineated for gameplay. ... The zombies (or, more appropriately, ghouls) have also been reworked to fit a more Night of the Living Dead feel. Zombicide players will recognize the Walkers and Fatties from previous games, however, they will now have to deal with new threats in the form of Breakers and Ghoul Relatives. Yes, Runners and Abominations have been removed from the game! But players shouldn’t breathe a sigh of relief yet. Breakers can, as the name suggests, break through the barricades that the survivors have created. What was once thought a safe haven will no longer be once a Breaker ghoul has its way. Meanwhile, Ghoul Relatives represent characters that the survivors had once known in life. Their appearance will cause mental anguish to the survivors. It’s not easy to have to shoot someone you’ve known and loved. The addition of these two new ghouls will pose different, and arguably more dangerous, types of threats. Using old tactics will not be feasible in these new games. Forget what you know about Zombicide’s main antagonists." https://cmon.com/news/melding-undead-classics-together
       
      Ghouls, btw, were really what these creatures were called. Zombies wasn't used until later. "For anyone that isn't familiar with the classic 1968 film directed by the late George Romero, Night of the Living Dead never uses the word "zombie," referring to the shuffling, virus-infected living dead as "ghouls" (which is more appropriate, given their hunger for human flesh). The association with zombies largely came from the sequel, Dawn of the Dead (1978), which used "zombie" in place of "ghoul" and which was distributed internationally under the title Zombi. ... Perhaps Romero changed the name because he discovered the word "zombie" in the interim. Ghouls were quite popular across the western world for centuries, or at least since Grimm's fairy tales. But zombies are from Haitian voodoo, and were largely unknown to the public at the time." https://www.reddit.com/r/AskHistorians/comments/6ntim5/how_did_the_ghouls_from_night_of_the_living_dead/
       
      CMON's FB page has preview pics and a video overview of the game. : https://www.facebook.com/coolminiornot/
       
      Yes, the KS is coming out right after the Zombicide 2nd edition KS, and in the middle of the holiday shopping season. The game's had delays in development (makes sense, with the most game changes I've seen in a Zombicide game) and, iirc, was meant for retail.
       
      And Barbara, evidently, must be the name of my wallet.
