Panda Cult Launches Shovel Knight Board Game Kickstarter

That uppity knight went and hit me over the head with a shovel. But, I mean, he's a Shovel Knight, so what did you expect. And you, too, can take up your mighty shovel and dispatch evil in Shovel Knight: Dungeon Duels, a new board game from Panda Cult Games based on the cult hit video game from Yacht Club Games. Send a wire to the main office and tell them that I said, "ow!"

From the campaign:

It is time to sharpen thy shovel once again! Shovel Knight makes his auspicious return to Kickstarter in Shovel Knight: Dungeon Duels! Based on the hugely successful crowdfunded video game and made in close cooperation with Yacht Club Games, Shovel Knight: Dungeon Duels is a competitive side-scrolling miniatures board game for 1-4 players. Players compete as different colored Shovel Knights to shovel out justice in spades against the evil Order of No Quarter all while trying to grab the most treasure to prove that they are the one true Shovel Knight! 

So what makes Shovel Knight: Dungeon Duels unique? The core aspect of the game is all about trying to gather the most gold, whether it's from defeating enemies, digging up treasure mounds, damaging bosses, or even taking them from a rival Shovel Knight. We also have our own unique elements, like side scrolling tiles, jumping over spiked pits, equipping unique armor and accessories, and fighting against the dastardly Order of No Quarter!

The campaign's more than 1/4 funded with still 24 days left to go.
