Rift Knights Board Game Up On Kickstarter

Rift Knights is a new asymmetrical board game up on Kickstarter now. One side is looking to protect the elders from the oncoming demon onslaught. The other side, well, is the demon onslaught. Choose good or evil and take up arms to either invade or defend. Who will be triumphant as the sun rises?

From the campaign:

In a clifftop monastery, an ancient order of holy knights watches over a sealed portal to the underworld. The knights must protect the elders—ancient sages who sustain the seal. Every year, during the long night of the winter solstice, when the power of darkness is at its greatest, the seal weakens enough for a few demons to break through. Once inside, the monsters seek to battle past the valiant knights and slay enough of the elders to fully break the seal. Imbued with the power of the gods, only these sacred knights stand a chance at stopping an army of monsters from flooding into the world.

Rift Knights is an asymmetrical team game for 2 to 6 players. One team controls the knights, who must protect the elders and withstand the demons until dawn. The other team controls the demons, who seek to break the seal to the underworld before morning.

The campaign's up and over its funding goal with 12 days left to go.
