Conan: Rise of Monsters Relaunches on Kickstarter

Conan wasn’t a quitter. If something didn’t work out right the first time, he would redouble his efforts and go back after the prize. Well, the same can be said for Pulposaurus Entertainment. They have retooled their Conan: Rise of Monsters miniatures game and have relaunched over on Kickstarter. This time, things are going much better.

Midweek Snippets

Taking a break from the RPG Kickstarters for a minute.
Is the week going by quickly for anyone else? On my ride in to work today, I looked down at my dashboard and saw my odometer and, for a moment, went, “why is that so high? It’s only Tues… oh… wait… it’s Wednesday. Ok, that makes sense.”
But seeing as it is Wednesday and all, we should have ourselves a Midweek Snippets.
Man, this is also the first Wednesday in a couple weeks where I don’t have tomorrow off. Makes me a little sad, but I’ll get through it, somehow.

Anyway, today’s batch of bite-sized stories includes: Skirmisher Publishing Releases 100 Oddities for a Wizard’s Tower, New Year’s Sale Happening Over at Advanced Deployment, Pulposaurus Entertainment Updates About the future of Conan: Rise of Monsters, New Praetorian Helmeted Heads From Puppets War, Chemical Spill: the Chemistry Card game: two weeks left on Kickstarter, Massive Awesome Announces Launch Date For Shattered Earth Kickstarter, Purgatory Posts New Previews, New Year’s Sale From Dark Art Miniatures, Iron Cross Miniatures Posts New Fireteam Release, New Dwarf King from Scibor, Too Fat Lardies Christmas Special, BattleGateGames Releases New Bust, New Battlefields XP Tufts From The Army Painter, ArmiesArmy 15mm Cold War Kickstarter is Live, New Paint Storage Systems from Burn In Designs, New Lower Pricing on Legends of Kalidasia Starter Sets, New Releases Available From Hinterland Miniatures, “Shieldwolf vs Orcs” launches on Kickstarter Tuesday 12th January, and Chicago Shootout reaches 50% funded on Kickstarter.

Conan: Rise of Monsters Teams with Reaper Miniatures, Cancels Kickstarter

Pulposaurus Entertainment has been running their Conan: Rise of Monsters Kickstarter campaign for a little bit now. The campaign had made it over the $100k mark, but that was still below 50% of their goal. I got to see the miniatures at Gen Con and thought they looked very good, especially for pre-painted plastics. Well, the guys over at Reaper Miniatures thought they looked pretty good, too. As such, they’ve decided to partner up with Pulposaurus.

Conan: Rise of Monsters posts Quickplay Rules

I’m always a big proponent of “try before you buy.” These days, most of us can’t afford to buy into a game without being sure we really want to play it. That’s why I always like to see companies post up rules for their game online. This is extra-crucial during a Kickstarter or other crowdfunding campaign, if you ask me. The fellows over at Pulposaurus Entertainment agree. As such, they’ve posted up the Quickstart rules for Conan: Rise of Monsters on their Kickstarter.

Conan: Rise of Monsters launches on Kickstarter

About a month ago, I was digging through Netflix for something to watch when I saw that they had the original Conan movie. Right then and there, I knew what I was going to be doing for the next couple hours. The characters and world are so iconic, especially to nerds and gamers (of which I fit into both categories), it’s almost impossible not to love them. We’ve had some cool Conan games come around recently, and Pulposaurus Entertainment is looking to answer the riddle of steel and add theirs to the list. Conan: Rise of Monsters is now up on Kickstarter.
