Kickstarter is a popular marketplace when it comes to collecting money from investors if you have some new product, business, or other project.

The game Gloomhaven earned an incredible amount of $13 million from supporters after the presentation was made on Kickstarter. That puts the board game the third most successful Kickstarter projects ever. Only two gadgets have been more successful so far. The Pebble smartwatch received $20 million from investors. The investors loved the planned mix of a convincing story, legacy elements, and the campaign of fights, as a result, the project of this game was very well received. Since the previous game has been released, the game of Gloomhaven was very successful, and it is considered as one of the best board games ever.

At the same time, the developer Cephalofair Games had triggered a real hype around Gloomhaven. There was no surprise that Frosthaven also got the attention of investors. If talking in numbers, more than 80,000 people were enthusiastic and interested in this idea. That made Frosthaven the most successful crowdfunding board game ever. Now it is time to implement the concept.

Anyone enthusiastic about Gloomhaven will immediately feel like coming back home while playing another board game Frosthaven. The players are going to take the role of adventurers. They set out to reap fame and glory while getting rich, and there are various scenarios that might be chosen. When the creators will finish the game, it should have around 100 different ways to fight a way through the land of Frosthaven. An exact way will depend on several decisions that each player has to make for himself. Once the campaign is started, you set out to search every corner of the area for treasures and do the tasks that your opponents give you. However, many enemies are waiting around every corner. They want to stop your mission and knock you down, so you must stop and fight with them. Unfortunately, opponents are becoming more and more dangerous. The fights cannot be won by dice, they all must be accompanied by tactics. What happens with a deck of cards? Those who have completed action can return to Frosthaven and exchange their treasures. Better tickets and even more equipment are available for the next fight.
