The Year of New Editions counts another victory as Modiphius has launched a Kickstarter campaign for Siege of the Citadel 2nd edition. The original game, released back in the 90s (*wistful sigh for that time*), was full of new innovations. The new edition looks to refurbish the game, rebalancing many of the elements within it, as well as adding to the rich legacy of a much-beloved title.
In the game, the players pick one of the five factions to play as. Each one has different faction abilities, giving you various bonuses to work with as you fight against the forces of the Dark Legion player. That player moves all the bad guys, while the others do the good guys. The Dark Legion player rotates at the end of each scenario, letting everyone get a chance to team up with their friends or to play against them. The Dark Legion player is in control of the Citadel of Alakhai, summoning new reinforcements each turn to do battle with the other players. Doing well can actually boost the other players, though, since that player’s DoomTrooper team will get a hefty bonus when it comes time for them to take to the field.
The campaign’s doing rather well. They’re already over their goal and making headway into stretch goals with still 29 days left to go.
