Now on Kickstarter: Who Goes There?, A Song of Ice & Fire and Star Realms Frontiers

Brent | July 26, 2017

Kickstarter is a constant source of amazing and innovative board games, here are some of the latest we found that look promising!

WHO GOES THERE?

Certifiable Studios is raising funds for WHO GOES THERE? on Kickstarter! WHO GOES THERE?, the book that inspired THE THING, is now a growing paranoia tabletop game!

Who Goes There?:

"The celebrated novella that inspired John Carpenter's landmark film 'The Thing' is now a tabletop game! First published in 1938, Who Goes There? by John W. Campbell, Jr. is widely regarded as one of the finest science fiction stories ever written."

"Now play as one of the original characters in this official tabletop adaptation - a suspenseful game of  co-op, strategy and growing paranoia. Who Goes There? is a cooperative 3 to 4 player (expandable to 6) growing paranoia game that takes anywhere from 90 to 120 minutes to play."

"At the beginning of the game all players are human and there is no reason not to trust each other completely, but as the temperature drops and mistakes are made players start doubting everything and everyone around them."

"You must build, trade and upgrade to prepare for the antarctic terrain, rabid dog attacks, crazed madmen... and most importantly, the alien entity that is now loose in the camp."

The game is being developed by Certifiable Studios, the team behind the soon to be delivered Endangered Orphans of Condyle Cove, the company has a wonderful scense of humour and are fully transparent and upfront about what they are dealing with in the production process. As this is there 2nd Kickstarter they have learnt a lot and will be sure to put that into play this time round.
