"Oh, I don't know. They could maybe use a bath and a bit of color for that drab wardrobe, but really..."
No! I mean they're arming themselves with torches and pitchforks and are storming the castle!
"Oh... that's bad, then."
Yes! And we, as some of history's most fierce creatures of folklore, have to defend ourselves and our home!
And that's the story behind Village Attacks, a new board game that's up on Kickstarter now.
From the campaign:
There is a place where evil calls home. Deep in the foothills of a secluded land stands a castle where creatures of lore and legend reside, and from here they strike out at the world and cause unspeakable terror. For too long the local villagers have lived in the shadow of this place, but no more! A call to arms has been made, and heroes and adventurers from across the land have answered the call! The villagers now come to destroy that which gives evil life, and they cannot be allowed to succeed!
Village Attacks is a cooperative castle defence game for 1-5 players that sees players taking on the roles of the most infamous and feared creatures of folklore and legend! Deep in a remote part of the world, you and your monstrous brethren have taken up residence in an immense castle in the foothills of lands where most fear to tread. But the local village has had enough of the evil that lies at its door and has decided to lay siege to the castle in an effort to drive you out and destroy whatever ties you to this world.
The Kickstarter is doing well. They're already well over their funding goal with still 27 days left to go.
