Battle Ravens Kickstarter ends soon (6 December)

Let me start with an apology... I know I've been posting a lot more than I usually do about my new game; the reason is simple - unlike all of my other games to date, Battle Ravens is being funded through Kickstarter.

This means that the more people who come on board, the more bits and pieces will be added to the published game, that the game is actually produced rather than becoming a 'might have been', and Kickstarter backers get access to some nice additional goodies and a cheaper price than RRP too.

(And the more successful the Kickstarter is, the more likely I am to be able to get my other games published.)

So I hope you can understand why I've been a bit more active on here in the past few weeks.

The good news is that the Kickstarter has funded, meaning that Battle Ravens will be produced. It's currently due to ship in April 2019. More good news is that all Kickstarter backers get an extra army included in their pledge (a Scottish one - come and play at being MacBeth!), and various component upgrades have been made due to the number of backers we've had join us.

The bad news is that the Kickstarter ends very soon: 6 December, at 11am UK time. So if you're thinking of helping to fund the game, now is the time! You can do so HERE.

From my point of view as a designer, I know I'm never going to be able to retire on my royalties - especially from a board game - but I think I've made an enjoyable little game here and would like people to try it and have fun. Even better, your Kickstarter support helps to improve the game's components and you get to save a little bit of money AND grab yourself an extra army. Why, if you're so inclined, you can even pick yourself up a signed copy of my 1066 Wargamer's Guide by choosing the Brunanburh Pledge Level...
