June 2, 2015: Crowdfunding Focus: The Dwarves

Crowdfunding Focus

Pegasus Spiele, our Munchkin translation partner for Germany and all-around excellent publisher of quality stuff, is doing a Kickstarter to bring one of their hit board games to the United States.

The Dwarves: The Saga is based on the tetralogy of the same name by fantasy author Markus Heitz, in which a foundling dwarf raised by humans discovers the nature of his heritage, and in so doing, finds himself embroiled in a struggle that engulfs the world. It's pretty classic high fantasy stuff, and it's also one of the most popular fantasy novel series in Germany.

In the game, you take control of the heroes from the novels — the main protagonist, Tungdil; and his friends, Balyndis, Boëndal, Boïndil, and Bavragor, guiding them through various quests and challenges in an effort to keep their homeland from succumbing to evil forces. (Incidentally, those are probably the most legitimate dwarven names I've ever heard.) The German version of the game has won a pile of awards already, and I'm excited to see it come across the pond.
