Game Salute teamed up with Clever Mojo Games to bring us King’s Forge on Kickstarter, and it was a big hit. Competing to win the King’s favor and become the head Forgemaster for the kingdom using dice and strategic resource management drew in a lot of people! There was even a chance to pick up a special game board for the game at Gen Con this year (labelled unnecessary but totally cool!). They’ve listened to gamer feedback, and have released a Kickstarter with the game’s first expansion, and a second edition of the game that includes the game board!
The King’s Forge: Apprentices expansion lets you pick up apprentices into your arsenal and gain their abilities for the rest of the game. The gather cards are better in this expansion, and it boosts the game to a 5 player game to let even more people in on the competition. New smithies are coming soon as well, including a Dragon, which I’m really excited about! And of course, new dice. The second edition of the game includes the unnecessary but totally cool game board (which we would highly recommend!) and the chance to pick up expansions for some big savings!
Our review of King’s Forge is coming soon, and we picked up the game board and it really enhanced the game. We have high hopes for this next project and think you will too. Their delivery date is a year out which may deter some people, but comments made previously to the Kickstarter launch mentioned that they hope to deliver before that date, but want to have the cushion room just in case they hit any snags with art or printing. Check out the project and keep an eye out here for our review and race to become the King’s Forgemaster!
