While it's getting hotter and hotter up here in the Northern hemisphere, those on the other half of the world are getting colder and colder as winter gets ever-closer. But what if winter came and just decided not to leave? Like, say, a Winter Demon decided to just set up roost and make himself at home? Well, then you'd have to send in the Kurents, a group of mythological beings, to unseat him. But is every Kurent working toward that goal?
That's the story behind Army of Kurents, a new board game that's up on Kickstarter now.
In the game, players take on the role of Kurents on a quest to defeat the Winter Demon and bring Spring back to the lands. However, there's a traitor among the ranks. One player is looking to sabotage the efforts of the others while doing their best to not be found out, themselves. As such, the game involves a lot of bluffing and manipulation as you either look to bring about spring, or keep icy winter in place forever (considering how hot it's going to be around here over the next couple months, I wouldn't mind an eternal winter...).
The game's up on Kickstarter now with still 27 days left to go.
