Don’t look now, but Kickstarter has been invaded by Cranky Chinchillas. And you really don’t want to deal with chinchillas when they’re cranky!
It’s a new tabletop card game introduced by a Canadian indie studio. In Cranky Chinchillas the nasty Chin Empire has decided to invade and conquer the community of Sleepy Town…which woulf seem simple on the surface, but they’re good at defending themselves despite how comatose they look. To play, you and your friends separate into four factions: the Chin Empire, the Sleepy Town inhabitants, the Forest Spirit and the Deceiver.
Each team is dealt a party of heroes to fight with. Use their unique powers strategically to gain the upper hand in the Chinchilla war. The heroes also represent your life points…lose them all and you are defeated. Action Cards allow you to attack, defend, or perform special actions. Each Faction has a win condition: for the Chins and the Sleepies it’s simple, eliminate all members of the other team. For the Forest Spirit, working for itself, it wins if its army kills off enough heroes from all the other factions. The Deceiver only wins if it’s the last player alive, so you really gotta watch out for that one.
You can get a copy of the Cranky Chinchillas base game for just a $20 pledge. Increasing it to $26 grants you a Kickstarter-exclusive limited edition. The lovely Collector’s Set is only available for a $49 pledge and includes two expansion packs, allowing for a greater number of players (up to eight).
Cranky Chinchillas met its initial goal in just 26 minutes. Get yours today….you have until October 21.

Last December we alerted our readers to the existence of a Kickstarter meant to fund three card games based on the art of Steven Rhodes. We were almost too late to report on them as the campaign was on its last day. But if we didn’t manage to inform you
We write about tabletop game maker Free League a lot around these parts, and based on what they just announced, we don’t expect to stop anytime soon. They’ve acquired the Blade Runner license, which is basically printing money even if the game is bad (but that probably won’t be the
