You readers know I’m a fan of abstract board games. Fild: Renegade Monsters by Bisbog is one such game. They have launched a Kickstarter campaign in order to get the game funded. They have a free version of the game you can play online, but if you’d like to have a physical copy, now’s your chance.
In the game, you are in control of various monsters. You play them out onto the board, looking to group like-monsters together. However, monsters are fickle and will switch allegiances to whomever makes their group larger. As such, monsters can switch back and forth between players several times as you add more to their packs. You want to have more points than your opponent when all the spots on the board have been filled. If you’re a fan of games like Othello, this is one you’ll want to check out.
You can expect a full review coming up on the game, as Bisbog was kind enough to send me a prototype version.
The campaign is set to run for another 28 days.
