There’s a number of very big and very interesting cooperative board game on Kickstarter right now. Our cup runneth over!
Play as one of your favorite Marvel superheroes … in Chibi form? There’s a lot of miniatures, and lot of Kickstarter-only miniatures! If you are even slightly interested in this game, it may behoove you to get it on Kickstarter because of all the exclusives. I don’t know if the game itself is any good, but Eric Lang is one of the designers: he’s a well-known and respect CMON designer (he was the designer on Blood Rage and Rising Sun to name a few).
Batman: The Animated Series Adventures
Marvel not doing it for you? How about DC? Yep, if you like the Batman universe and wanted a fully cooperative game, then … this game has a cooperative mode. Now, the default mode is one vs. many, but if Detective: City of Angels has taught us anything, a one vs. many game can have a great cooperative mode.
Like Marvel United, this one has a ton of Kickstarter exclusive minis, so again, if you are at all inclined to like this, better scoop it up now!
Testament by Japanime
This one isn’t doing as well, but I am very excited for this cooperative game for one reason: the designer is the same as Unicornus Knights, a favorite co-op of mine from a few years ago (it made my number 4 spot in my favorite cooperative games of 2017, just below Spirit Island). So, even though the rulebook for Unicornus Knights needed a LOT of work (see my review here), I loved the game! I hope they learned their lessons so that the rulebook for Testament will be better!!! Although the game has funded, it needs some more love. Check it out!
Aeon’s End: Outcasts
Although I think I might already have too much Aeon’s End content, it’s a fantastic game! Aeon’s End made the top spot(s) on my Top 10 Cooperative Deckbuilders. Aeon’s End: Outcasts is a big box expansion adding more! You can also go back and pick up any of the original Aeon’s End stuff too … see my review here of Aeon’s End and War Eternal.
Yes, I backed this. Like all the other ones too. Shut-up.
