In der 16. Kalenderwoche 2021 sind einige neue Crowdfunding-Projekte auf Kickstarter ins Rennen gegangen. Die Auswahl ist insgesamt zwar überschaubar, allerdings sind einige hochkarätige Kampagnen „live“ gegangen, die die eine oder andere Millionengrenze purzeln lassen werden: Diesbezüglich vielversprechen sind vor allem die Adaption des Videospiel-Hits Monster Hunter von Steamforged Games sowie Warchief Gamings Tabeltop-RPG Auroboros: Coils of the Serpent.

Even if it doesn't look like it at first glance, given the manageable selection of new kickstarters, there is a lot of money going into the campaigns this week in April. Primarily two projects stand out. On the one hand, there is the tabletop RPG Auroboros: Coils of the Serpent With which the still young publisher Warchief Gaming is not only celebrating its debut on Kickstarter, but also its game premiere in general. And so far it has been extremely successful: fans have already pumped over 600.000 euros into the campaign. A considerable amount for a pen-and-paper role-playing game.

On the other hand, our current spotlight is probably good for reaching several million milestones. With the board game for the successful video game Monster Hunter, Steamforged Games is drilling a thick board this week. It also seems to be worthwhile in monetary terms: the campaign has long since exceeded the two million euro mark.

With hidden leaders or Secret domination Incidentally, there is also a German-speaking participation this week. This campaign has also been financed for a long time - making BFF Games' debut a success.

SPOTLIGHT: Monster Hunter World - The Board Game

In den vergangenen Monaten gab es viele Videospiel-Marken an deren Titel man einfach „The Board Game“ angehängt hat, um daraus ein Brettspiel zu machen. Auch bei Capcoms Megaseller Monster Hunter World ist das nicht anders. Der Verlag Steamforged Games macht aus dem Multiplayer-Jagdspiel ein kooperative Arena-Brettspiel, bei dem man das Spielgefühl der Vorlage möglich originalgetreu einfangen will.

As on the screen, in Monster Hunter World: The Board Game, different hunters face dangerous creatures, each of which wants to be hunted down by individual tactics. Do not mess, but clunk is apparently the motto of Steamforged Games, because the Monster Hunter board game is a material battle.

It goes without saying that miniatures appear in the board game. The video game simply provides thematically. However, players have to dig deep into their pockets if they want a full pack of hunting equipment: the all-in pledge costs around 250 euros - plus shipping and taxes. In the end, the costs should be around 320 euros.

Viel Geld. Dafür gibt es allerdings auch viel Inhalt, darunter gleich mehrere Erweiterungen inklusive einiger Miniaturen, deren Größen beeindruckend sind. „Big Monsters“ ist kein leeres Versprechen, sondern bei Monster Hunter World: The Board Games ein fester Bestandteil des Konzepts. Der Preis für das Grundspiel ist mit 58 Euro vergleichsweise moderat, dafür wird der Umfang dann allerdings auch deutlich abgespeckter – insbesondere was die Miniaturen der Monster und Jäger angeht.

Ein wenig spielt Steamforged Games hier mit „FOMO“, also der Angst, man könne etwas verpassen. Deutlich wird das an den Unterstützerzahlen der einzelnen Pledge-Level: die Einstiegsbox haben bislang lediglich rund 360 Fans gebucht, den 119 Euro teuren Core-Pledge hingegen 1.350 Fans. Mehr als 8.300 gehen hingegen in die Vollen und gönnen sich das Rundum-sorglos-Paket.

This is also reflected in the amount of funding that has been generated so far. Around 2,3 million euros flowed into the campaign; just over 11.100 supporters took part. The average invested amount is around 204 euros. Incidentally, Steamforged Games wanted to collect around 174.000 euros.

If the campaign is successfully completed, the board game will be delivered in September 2022, so fans will have to wait many months for their games. Anyone getting started with the Crowdfunding project for Monster Hunter World: The Board Game would like to let go through the head, has until April 30th. Then the campaign ends.
