The Kickstarter campaign for BERSERKERS by Alone Editions, a solo card and dice game, has surpassed its initial funding goal of €26,000 by raising over €53,000 with 20 days still left in the campaign. The game, which takes players on a journey to protect the regions of Helm from Shadow Riders and their Orc hordes, has garnered attention for its unique gameplay and replayability.
In BERSERKERS, players take on the role of three warriors commissioned by King Hrolf Kraki to protect their homeland by lighting the protective fires of Odin and marking the Shadow Riders with a sacred seal. To achieve this, players must roll action dice and use action cards to move, loot, assist villagers, gamble, and perform other actions while navigating the AI-controlled Shadow Riders and their hordes.
What sets BERSERKERS apart is the inclusion of King’s Requests, which players must complete in order to win the game. With over 4000 starting set-up combinations related to these requests, players will have a new and intense experience with each game. The game also boasts 479 million set-up combinations for the 12 location cards, ensuring that players will never have the same game twice.
The game is currently available in French or English, but the creators have announced that other language versions will be available in PDF. The cards in the game are textless, making it accessible to players from all over the world.
The Kickstarter campaign for BERSERKERS by Alone Editions will end on May 16, so those interested in this unique solo game still have time to support the project and secure their own copy.
