You’ve probably heard the saying, “you’ve got my heart in your hands” in some love song or bit of poetry or written in a sappy romance novel. Well, the Predator species tends to take sayings like that literally. Prodos has their February releases available for Alien vs. Predator, but along with that, you can get a limited-edition model with your qualifying order.
Well… this is a new one. We’re all used to seeing new skins of classic games, but some of the ones I’ve been hearing about lately take things in a direction you might not originally have thought would be possible. For example, today we have Alien Vs. Predator… as a game of Clue. Actually, when you read a bit more into it, it makes a lot of sense.
Prodos Games has a few spots left for people that want to get in on the AVP game at Kickstarter prices.
From the post:
We have had a lot of interest in the Kickstarter Pre-order from people who unfortunately couldn’t get involved, so just to let you know, we have limited spaces available for folks to take advantage of the Kickstarter Pre-Order prices. This is first come, first served and if you are interested, please email email@example.com.
Prodos Games is showing off a 3D render for their Alien Queen for the Alien vs. Predator Kickstarter campaign.
From the preview:
CONCEPT! Model will be supplied on a 80mm Base and will be approx 120mm high. (1 Model supplied)
The Queen will be unlocked when we reach £290000 and can be added to your Pledge for £35
Prodos Games is showing off the £230k Stretch Goal for Alien vs. Predator over on Kickstarter.
From the update:
Hi there folks! So we have smashed the last Stretch Goal and we can now announce the £230k Stretch Goal!
When we get to £230k, the Predator Young Bloods Add-On will be unlocked and so can be Added for £25 for 3.
The Predator Young Bloods are Yautja which must prove themselves to the senior members of their tribe by surviving the hunt. Young Bloods are by no means weak, they are still Predators and quite often still have the skills required to send whole hives of Aliens packing.
Prodos Games has posted up their next stretch goal for Aliens Vs. predator and it’s a biggie.
From the update:
This is Rumour Control… Here are the facts.
So we have CRUSHED the last few stretch goals and as such, we feel that you guys deserve an exciting new add-on to choose!
So we present to you, the Alien Crusher! A large Xenomorph that is said to be almost bulletproof and charges into its foes causing massive blunt force trauma. With it’s heavily armoured crest, the Crusher is also able to severely damage armoured vehicles…
The Crusher is a substantial miniature in every sense. Bigger than even the Royal Guard, the Crusher comes on a 50mm base. As soon as they are unlocked, Crushers will be available at £30 per model as an Add-on.
Prodos Games has a special stretch goal as one of the designers is expecting a new child.
I don’t think it’ll burst out of his wife’s chest, though.
From the update:
As many of you know Mark (and wife) of Prodos Games is expecting a baby!
We were hoping to give this one out as a present when the baby came, but obviously some people are upset about the £185K Stretch Goal…so the present announcement comes early:
When baby comes and if we are above £170k everyone at ‘Payback Time!’ or higher will get an additional £10 of addons.
Add-ons are on Mark
Come on Baby! Make Mark pay……
Prodos Games is giving away a free model if you recommend a friend to their Alien Vs. Predator Kickstarter campaign.

The last pledger was number 873, the new person has to have a higher number than that! New pledgers, you can be the inviter too!
Prodos Games has launched their Alien vs. Predator Kickstarter campaign. It’s already more than 2x funded, so check it out now. It’s a rather short campaign, so don’t rest too long on your laurels.
From the campaign:
The Boxed Game AvP – The Hunt Begins is a self-contained gaming experience, a fusion of mission and narrative driven Board Game and Table Top War Game. A family game where 1 or more players can sit down and play through their own narrative and develop their own characters and objectives over many inter-linked games. Or players can sit down and play a ‘free for all’ with games like ‘Survival’, ‘Last human/Alien/Predator standing’, ‘capture the objective’ etc. filling an hour or two of your evening or raining Sunday afternoon.
But equally AvP – The Hunt Begins is a portal into the AvP Wargame, which will allow you to play as a Battalion of Colonial Marines, an entire nest of Aliens or a Hunt of Predators. The free AvP Wargame will be available to download and will be available in hardback form when the appropriate stretched goal is unlocked.
Prodos Games announced a start date for their Aliens Vs. Predator Kickstarter. It’s only a couple days away.
