Boardgames in Blighty Kickstarter News 12/02/16 – ICYMI Victoriana is live on Kickstarter
Every once in a while, something a little different comes along on Kickstarter and I miss it. Victoriana somehow slipped under my radar which isn’t always so great anyway. I suspect it has slipped under you radar as well as normally I would have thought that it would be at least 50% funded by now. Probably the competition from TMNT has had an effect…
From the campaign page –
Play as famous characters from Victorian literature and history as you try to stop a conspiracy that threatens Queen and Country!
Victoriana is a cooperative board game for 1-4 players. In Victoriana, players take the role of famous Victorian characters. Following a trail of clues through sprawling 19th century London, these characters must investigate a dire conspiracy that threatens Queen and Country. If all three elements of the conspiracy- Mastermind, Plot, and Locale- are discovered before Big Ben chimes midnight, the players have a chance to engage in a climactic confrontation for the fate of the British Empire. God save the Queen!
What is interesting is the mash-up of interesting and fun Victorian themes so that they interact with each other.
It’s really nice to see an attractive game project without the irritating earlybirds and umpteen add-ons. It seems like a fair price for the game and it is EU friendly which helps a lot.
If I had the cash I would be tracking this one as looks like a fun, interesting cooperative game with a winning theme. I suspect that this would be of interest to a number of you so check it out for sure here – Victoriana on Kickstarter
