This time around we’ll be taking a look at four cooperative board games that are currently on Kickstarter. All of these games have at least five days remaining, so you’ll have plenty of time to look over the campaigns and see if any of them are for you.
Play as a Virtue guiding Solomon Kane in a 1-4 player co-op game of storytelling, resource management & tactical miniatures play.
I know very little about Solomon Kane, but I do know that this game has a cool look to it and that preview video is pretty awesome. If you’re a fan of author Robert E. Howard, who also created the Conan the Barbarian character, chances are you’re going to be interested in this game.
Fates of Madness
A cooperative RPG adventure card game based on the Gothic Campaign Compendium. Plays Solo or up to 5 Players!
This looks like it’s going to be a small-box cooperative gateway game with some really nice artwork. It has the type of theme that a lot of people are into, so I’m guessing the main reason why it hasn’t funded yet is because potential backers want to see some previews/reviews before they commit.
Kung Fu Panda
A game of furious action where players co-operate under a time limit to defeat Tai Lung & other villains from the Kung Fu Panda movies.
Yeah, no one is surprised that this one funded. And no one will be surprised if it sells well once it hits retail, either, considering it’s a real-time game with a popular theme. This one could end up being one of the most popular cooperative family games of the year.
The Hunters AD 2114
The Hunters AD 2114 is a cooperative board game for 1-4 players. Become a hunter and face enemies in a post-apocalyptic world.
I’ll play any game that allows you to customize your characters in new and interesting ways. Plus, I know the designer, Mateusz Albricht, has been working on this for a while so chances are it’s going to be well put together. If you like RPG-type board games, you’ll probably want to check this one out.
