Awesome Enterprises has launched a Kickstarter campaign in order to fund their board game, Shuriken.
Yes, it has ninjas.

From the campaign:

In Shuriken, players take control of 250 plastic ninja including unarmed, sword, shuriken, and master ninja. During the game the players place, move, and upgrade their ninja forces on the modular board as they attempt to learn new techniques and battle enemy ninja — often destroying the board in the process.

The winner is the player with the most victory points when the sun rises at the end of the night.

I was born at a very young age. I plan on living forever. So far, so good.

    Bag o’ Ninja is a bag of 100 (black) plastic ninja. This will contain ninja of all four sculpts (unarmed, sword, shuriken, and master) in the same proportions as the game (24 Unarmed Ninja, 12 Sword Ninja, 12 Shuriken Ninja, and 2 Master Ninja x 2)

    (100) 28mm ninja for $25 sounds pretty good. If I have anything left from Raging Heroes KS I might go in for that….

  • With the US postal rates – backing a US based kickstarter is a no-go for non-US people like me… $50 shipping is just not worth it. $25 shipping for the bag of ninjas… still a no-go.

    Yeah it looks great but the postage kills it for me, such a shame I am sure there are a lot of potential backers put off by this.

    Yup, the USPS rates for international shipping have become insane. Couple that with custom fees which are commonly based on the value of the product + postage costs and the price for Kickstarter stuff basically doubles for non-US backers.
    Let’s hope that the talks about an US-EU free trade agreement bear fruit.

    Of course I love how the Shuriken Kickstarter has a FAQ point called “International Shipping is CRAZY expensive. WTF!?!? >:(“, which explains the problem in detail.
    I might just give them money just for that.
