There’s many board games that we love to play, but they can take a while to set up and get going. When you want to play, you want to get playing, and not spend lots of time setting up or teaching the game to a new player. Well, Realm-Master sets up in about 2 minutes and takes maybe 5 to teach. It’s a fast-paced worker placement/push-your-luck game that’s up on Kickstarter now.
From the campaign:
Realm-Master: The Epic Board Game has a 2 minutes setup time and can be learnt in only 5 minutes. Each time you play the board game crafts a new story with your hero central stage, defeating your rivals with combinations of spells, weapons, brute force and good fortune.
The board game features some push your luck dice rolling, a little bit of worker placement and lots of casting spells, buying weapons and equipment, enchanting your hero and attacking your rivals.
It takes 3-6 players and is best with 4. Games run from as little as 15 minutes up to epic battles for 6 players. Minimum player age: 8. Note: the dice rolling and random card drafting isn’t for everyone, certain people hate random, if this is you then this board game isn’t the right board game for you.
Unique hero abilities are well balanced and lead to different strategies, different board games, and a different story each time you play. The final board game variants have led to some really exciting, really fun, knife-edge games with a palpable feeling of tension in the air.
The game’s about 1/5 of the way to their goal with still 24 days left to go.
