Trogdor the Burninator is coming to the tabletop gaming universe! Board game creator James Ernest has teamed up with Mike and Matt Chapman to create TROGDOR!! THE BOARD GAME, now currently being crowdfunded on Kickstarter.
Trogdor was created by Mexican wrestler Strong Bad over 15 years ago on a humble scrap of notebook paper. Made of an S, a different-type S, and a beefy arm for good measure, Trogdor stomps the countryside looking for thatched-roof cottages to roast. The cartoon short that introduced him was published just as Homestar Runner was taking off, and became its most popular short.
Now YOU can take on the Dragon and bring the Burninator’s fury to your game table. “You and up to 5 friends -or maybe people you just paid to come over- take on the roles of a cult of hooded creepos calling themselves the Keepers of Trogdor who have devoted their lives to aiding the mighty dragon in his quest for total and complete burnination,” says the official copy. “Take turns guiding Trogdor on his destructive lost weekend around Peasantry. Help him avoid pesky knights and archers, devour peasants, burninate the countryside, and, of course, the thatched roof COTTAGES!!”
This Kickstarter had a humble goal of just $75,000. Obviously with the Brothers Chaps attached to it, it was going to break that barrier, and it did so about as fast as you can blink. The campaign launched only this morning and it already blew past it, as of this writing up to $124,000…..no, $124,670…..no….
