We’re a bit late to this one, and we hope you’re reading it in time, but chances are you already knew about it. Heroes of Barcadia, the new party tabletop game from Rollacrit, is a massive Kickstarter hit — from a humble goal of just $50,000, they’ve earned over a million!
Heroes of Barcadia mixes two classic indoor pasttimes — tabletop gaming and beer guzzling — into one epic experience. Two to six players form a team and pour themselves a glass that represents their health meter (measurements are included on the cup side). If you haven’t already guessed, you must take a sip every time you take damage. The card-based game layout means each playthrough is different, and the monsters — though hilarious — are unpredictable. Try not to get smashed, in both senses of the word.
You can get a copy of Heroes of Barcadia with a $60 pledge. That will net you one copy of the game which includes 6 Plastic Health Bar Character Cups, 57 Plastic Room Tiles, 15 Plastic Trap Tokens, 75 Plastic Loot Cards, 25 Plastic Power-Up Cards, 6 Plastic Reference Cards, 6x 20-sided colored dice, the rulebook, and all stretch goal content (of which there is a LOT). Hobby shops and merchants can get their copies in bulk — and at a cheaper rate — through the $35 Global Merchant tier.
But you’d better hurry! The Heroes of Barcadia Kickstarter ends tonight…8:59 Pacific / 11:59 Eastern to be specific. Pledge through this link.
