If you’re a fan of the Mouse Guard comics, you’ll want to listen up. Have you ever wanted to immerse yourself in this comic’s world outside of just reading the beautiful novels? Luke Crane is working closely with the creator of Mouse Guard to bring you Swords & Strongholds, a board game based on the one played in the graphic novels.
Swords & Strongholds is a small board game only meant to last 10-20 minutes, which you must admit would be pretty long if you were a mouse! The game comes with a gridded wooden board, mouse tokens, and cards used to take actions within the game. There aren’t any stretch goals or super fancy add-ons, but I feel that this plays to the interests of fans of Mouse Guard – something simple, something light, and something fun.
This game certainly has my attention and I will probably be jumping into this project to help bring it to life. The game is already funded and has 26 days remaining. Some backers are hoping that the opportunity to pick up the Mouse Guard RPG or other novels will be presented as stretch goals in the future, but for now the project is very straight-forward with the hope of creating a smooth and high-quality gaming experience for Mouse Guard fans.
