Quantcast
Are you a true Bloodborne fan? Bloodborne: The Board Game Kickstarter

Forums - Gaming Discussion - Are you a true Bloodborne fan? Bloodborne: The Board Game Kickstarter

First of all please let me say that I owe an apology to all who are interested in what I'm about to say because there is less than three days left to jump on Bloodborne: The Board Game Kickstarter.  I meant to mention this earlier, but it's been hard carving out time for certain extracurricular activities.

So if you're a true Bloodborne fan or if you are a sucker for a fantasy/sci fi board game equipped with fine detailed miniatures and interchangeable board tiles, I would seriously advise you to jump on this Kickstarter project.

This Kickstarter project requires a goal of $200,000, and the initial investment for the core set is $100.  Now that funding has exceeded $3,300,000, stretch goal after stretch goal has been met that makes the initial investment a bargain from a fantasy boardgame standpoint.  Then, you have your optional buys which you can considered them as expansion packs.  All of the optional buys and a good many of the stretch goals are Kickstarter exclusives.  You can also download the work-in-progress rule book to give you a fair idea on the game mechanics.

This will be the first project I have ever supported on Kickstarter, and I'm going all in on this one.  So far it's going to cost me $350 for all current game content not counting any shipping cost. Also, it should be May 2020 when items are to be received.

I'd seriously consider this one with just a few days left.

See below for a "few" images of the core set, stretch goals & optional buys.

For all the goods, go to this link: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/cmon/bloodborne-the-board-game

UPDATE:

ALL stretch goals have been meet!  Ultimately, over $4,000,000 was pledge with nearly 24,000 backers.  This game was already a go to begin with, but having everything unlocked for backers made this an even better deal.  But there is a late pledge option, and I'm not sure how long this will be available.  But if you were on the fence about this Kickstarter and though you missed out, you better jump on this while there still is a window open. 

Images updated.

looks awesome.



Its my favorite game this gen, but I have no interest in a board game of it...



Love the game and have played it often from start to finish aswell as being one of the few games I have finished DLC for, ever. A board game though, nah, not my thing.

I know in general, video games are more popular than board games, and everyone has their preferences.  But I though the VGChartz community was cooler than this.  It seems that I'm one of the few on the higher echelons of nerd-dom coolness.  :p

Love the video game. Bought the nightmare edition and it is the best collectors edition I've ever owned. I don't know how boardgame pricing works, but Holy shit it's expensive. If you go for the full set, it's even more expensive. I thought £50-60 would set me up for everything.



Whoever said life to be like a box of chocolates clearly didn't know what he was talking about. 

Life is more like a game of bumper cars. At every turn there is a possibility you will get screwed.

Board game? Nah bruh.

Hm, another Erik Lang's and CMON popular IP cash in, I see. Bloodborne (card game), was not that great, maybe this one is better.

Now, admittedly I'm not a big fan of Erik Lang's work, but this seems like somewhat interesting dungeon crawler - while fan of Souls, Bloodborne was completely uninteresting to me due to setting, but mechanisms seems quite solid here.

Pricing of board games vs. video games is indeed a different beast.  I cannot speak for the UK, but it's typical here in the states to find specialized board games in locations such as Barnes & Nobles and table top gaming store upwards of $150 for a core set.  I don't know of all the economics of the development and manufacturing of these games. But I do know that it's harder to physically mass produce a variety of specialized items for a specific produce that caters to a niche market at a low price.  Part of the attraction for me is that seeing the "artist rendition" if a virtual character/object in a tangible form in "real-life."  And then outside of the cost itself is the physical interaction with friends around the table.

Games Workshop is stationed in UK.  You might have heard of the Warhammer franchise.  Not the best example to point to, but if you ever come across their products, you'll see that these specialized board games and table top games are a hobby in and of itself and could run you a small fortune in the long run.

Backed this thing about 15 minutes into the campaign, so my initial investment was 90 instead of 100. I also put an extra 80 in there for two of the 40 dollars expansions (Upper Cathedral and Hunter's Dream). I'll likely add a few more expansions over the course of the pledge manager window.

I love campaign-based board games. I love Bloodborne. This was made for me.
