This is one that people have been looking forward to since its announcement last year at Gen Con. CMON has launched the Kickstarter campaign for Rising Sun. The game, designed by Eric Lang, with artwork by Karl Kopinski, and featuring miniatures from Mike McVey, the game takes players back to Feudal Japan, putting them in charge of the various clans, all vying for power. But first, a nice cup of tea.
From the campaign:
Rising Sun is a board game for 3 to 5 players set in legendary feudal Japan. As the Kami descend from the heavens to reshape the land in their image, it is up to each player to lead their clan to victory. Use politics to further your cause, negotiate to seek the most profitable alliances, worship the Kami to gain their favor, recruit monsters out of legend to bolster your forces, and use your resources wisely to be victorious in battle.
Created by acclaimed designer Eric M. Lang, Rising Sun reunites the same creative forces responsible for the smash hit Blood Rage, with stunning artwork by Adrian Smith and intricate miniatures sculpted under the direction of Mike McVey.
The campaign is running now and is set to go for another 27 days.
