And It's Still Climbing
The Frosthaven Kickstarter has become the most-funded tabletop game on Kickstarter and it's still climbing. If you're quick, you might also be able to get a copy for yourself before it closes!
If you're unfamiliar with Frosthaven, you should turn around right now and go back; this is a very deep tabletop game that will capture your soul and eat up a ton of your free time. This is a standalone campaign in the Gloomhaven world, which is it itself an expensive game that's also tons of fun.
As for the tabletop nerds whose souls are lost and wallets are empty, this new game is a pretty cool product. Characters from Gloomhaven, Forgotten Circles, and the upcoming Jaws of the Lion can all be used in Frosthaven, nevermind the 16 new characters that are included in the box.
At the time of writing, the Kickstarter campaign sites at $12,650,000 and climbing. I'm using a rough number here, largely because it just jumped by another one three thousand dollars in the time it took me to write this sentence.
The previous title was held by Kingdom Death: Monster 1.5 which ultimately closed out its campaign with $12,393,139. As for Kickstarter in general, Frosthaven has claimed the #2 spot overall with Pebble TIme ($20.33 million) at #1. It's doubtful that Frosthaven will make the $8 million needed to claim the #1 spot in the time remaining, but hey — who knows?
When Does the Frosthaven Kickstarter End?
If you're thinking about getting one of the first copies of Frosthaven for yourself, now's not the time to dilly-dally: this Kickstarter campaign is ending very soon.
How soon, exactly? Well, you have until Friday, May 1, 2020 (that's today) at 5:00 PM Eastern (that's less than two hours). A copy of the game will cost you $100, but it's probably worth it. Check out the Frosthaven Kickstarter to make your pledge before it's gone for good!
