Guilds are sort of the corporations of the medieval world. They’re looking to attract the best talent, have the best guild hall, create items that let them go out and perform quests which will earn them more money and prestige. Just, instead of coming out with the greatest smartphone or automobile, they’re going out and slaying monsters and rescuing monarchy from towers. Creating the greatest guild of them all is your task in Guild Masters, a new board game up on Kickstarter.
In the game, players are in control of their own guild. The object is to grow and build up your guild to the greatest one in town. You’ll look to hire new heroes for your guild, craft magical items with which to equip them, and send them out on missions to gain prestige for the guild. Build up your hall by adding on more rooms and outmaneuver your opponents on your way to becoming the most influential guild in town.
The Kickstarter campaign’s up and running now. They’re about 1/3 of the way to their goal with still 22 days left on the clock.
