Just about everyone had a favorite stuffed animal when they were growing up. You might imagine that one day they would come to life and you'd go on wild adventures together. Well, what if such a thing were to happen? And what if it were to happen during an alien invasion? What if your plushie friends were the only thing that could save the Earth? That'd be pretty sweet. It's also the story behind Zupper Dolls, a new magnetic board game that's up on Kickstarter now.
Obviously designed with younger gamers in mind, the rules for Zupper Dolls are fairly simple. Players pick one of the characters to start out with. The object of the game is to be the first to defeat the Boss Alien at the end of the game board. You do this by moving your character along, getting equipment and bonuses along the way, as well as attacking mini-bosses. The game mechanics are designed to be accessible to young gamers, with a simple "die roll + bonus" attack system. Win, lose, or draw versus one of the mini-bosses, your character will be moved around the board.
The Kickstarter campaign is up and running now. It's set to go for another 27 days.
