Actually, the name is a little misleading. Curly Fu is just one of the variants of a tile-flipping game rules set that's up on Kickstarter now. The rules might be the same, but the different skins of the game have different names. Curly Fu is the Detective version. Urashima is the Far-East version. Dark Matter is the horror version. And Spellbreaker is the Cyberpunk version. Whichever you want to go with, you can check them out on Kickstarter.
From the campaign:
Curly Fu is an easy-to-learn, area enclosure, tile flipping, grid movement boardgame for 2-4 players developed by Gérard Pierson. Secret missions, hidden treasures and unique bonuses guarantee high re-playability.
Choose your favorite theme from Detective (Curly Fu), Far-East (Urashima), Scary (Dark Matter), or Cyber-fairytale (Spellbreaker). It has been in development for a year and a half and in that time, it has gone through many transformations and shifts, until we were satisfied with the result.
This Kickstarter is for the english edition of Curly Fu. The game material itself is language neutral, the different cards however have English texts.
One of the biggest decisions was to go a radically different way in this Kickstarter by avoiding tons of fancy 'upgrading' stretch-goals but rather give you all the possible material improvements like linen-finished cards, or custom silk-printed wooden meeples that normally call for your extra money, right from the start.
The campaign is up and running now with 19 days left to go.
