While not everyone may know the name Don Quixote (or even really how to pronounce Quixote correctly), you’ve probably heard about Spaniards attacking windmills. Don’s the one that did that in the classic book by Miguel de Cervantes (no, not the same guy from Soul Calibur). Now, you can recreate those epic tales for yourself with La Mancha, a new storytelling card game based on the book. The game is up on Kickstarter now.
From the campaign:
La Mancha is a storytelling card game for 3-5 players based on Miguel de Cervantes’s classic 1605 novel Don Quixote.
Players take turns revealing the steps of an epic journey: everything from angry innkeepers to virtuous love interests. To overcome each challenge, players use Chivalry cards in their hand (based on books that Don Quixote read in the novel) to tell stories of their deeds, with the best storyteller winning strength-enhancing Treasure cards. Players can then use these Treasures to perform great Feats such as slaying fearsome giants (or are they windmills?) and dueling their rivals. The player who has performed the most Feats by the end of the game is the winner!
Over 2 years in development, the gameplay of La Mancha is closely based on Cervantes’ classic novel, where a nobleman plays at knighthood after reading one too many books about chivalry. Whether you’ve read Don Quixote multiple times or are a newcomer to Cervates’ world, absurdity, adventure, and fun game nights await!
The game is closing in on 1/2 funded with still 27 days on the clock.
