Ares Games Launches Sword & Sorcery Board Game Kickstarter

You just can't seem to keep evil down. You think you've gotten it all taken care of and wrapped up. It might even take a couple centuries, but it seems like it's always making a comeback. Such is the case in Ares Games' latest project up on Kickstarter. In Sword & Sorcery, an ancient evil is once again threatening the world. This is the metaphorical "big one," and it'll take the combined efforts of some of history's greatest heroes in order to defeat it.

In this fully-cooperative game, players take on the mantle of a famous hero, recently revived in order to fight the armies of darkness. However, after a long nap, the heroes aren't in tip-top condition anymore. As such, they'll have to take on lesser enemies in order to build themselves back up again. Regain strength and gather allies and ancient artifacts in your quest to not only stem the tide of evil, but to send it back from whence it came.

The campaign just launched and is quickly reaching towards their funding goal (possibly to have passed it by the time you're reading this, depending on when you see it). It's set to run for another 28 days.
