Hello everyone !!
Finishing today on kickstarter there is the Devil May Cry board games by Steamforged Games.
It was a short 7 Days Kickstarter campaign and they Reached the goal already (170,897 € & 2386 backers)
DMC is a mix of Deck building, Competitive, Coop games. Each participant play one of the Heroes and Clear Wave of Monster all while gaining Style Points (victory) by using the longest chain of cards (Combo !).
It's odd but this campaign only have one level of pledge (2 if you count the Early Bird but that was for the same stuff).
The So called "Sparda Pledge" Is core game + 3 expansions.
As you can see the KS price is 77£ instead of 180£ retail so it's an ok deal (keep in mind they always exaggerate the retail price ^^)
The mini starts at 40mm and up to 110 mm
Honestly the mini look super cool if you are a fan of the DMC franchise, personally if have very fond memories of DMC 1 on PS2 (holy shit just checked and that was 18 years ago !!!).
I am an big fan of Deck Building games these days and this one look super interesting.
Each Hero have his own base deck and can upgrade it by killing monsters to earn Blood. During your turn you try to play Cards to form a combo chain that to kill Monsters and Rack Style Points (victory points).
You have the option to continue the combo or stop it to earn points. Off course if you maintain your combo and take damage it's over you loose it have to start over.
DMC is cooperative, don't need Gm and look easy on the rules. Only green light if you want to play with Casual friends. Also it seem to offer enough depth for playing with more gamer friends. Sound like a win win and big models to paint with my Airbrush is a big +
Steamforged games made a series of video about the game and offer to DL the rules now
