Shadows of Brimstone, Kickstarter

Right now Flying Frog Productions (makers of Last Night on Earth and other great games) is having an amazing run on Kickstarter with their awesome Sci-Fi, Lovcraftian old west mash up Shadows of Brimstone.


For a brief description, lets look at what the Flying Frog guys say about it themselves.

“Shadows of Brimstone is a fast-paced, Cooperative, dungeon-crawl board-game set in the Old West, and mixed with Unspeakable Horror!

Players create characters, taking on the role of a classic Western Hero Archetype, such as the Law Man, Gunslinger, or Saloon Girl. Forming an adventuring posse, the Heroes venture down into the dark mines, overrun with all manner of ancient demons and foul creatures from another world. With tactical gameplay, lots of dice, and a robust card-driven exploration system, no two games are ever the same as the Heroes explore the mines finding new enemies to fight, new Loot to collect, and new dangers to overcome. Players can even find portals to other worlds, stepping through to continue their adventures on the other side!”

The game’s settings are quite varied because of all the alien worlds the players can visit, from alien frozen wastes, to jungles, to industrial war torn worlds. This allows for a vast amount of replay-ability, and diversity in game-play and storytelling.


The game launches with two core sets filled with great miniatures, a puzzle build terrain board system and even a sound track CD! Each core set and expansion will offer a unique play experience with new place to explore and new enemies to face.

That’s all I have for now, if your interested you should defiantly check it out.
