I Discover Kickstarter. Am I cool now?

Seems like all the cool kids are doing it, and now I've tagged along to the party. Yep, the Dux has bought in to a kickstarter. I blame Neil Shuck, who featured it on the Meeples and Miniatures blog.



So why am I interested in Battleground? Well firstly, it's shiny. But more importantly, I like the idea of getting the cards for some armies I don't have and using them to try out different systems. If you aren't familiar with the Battleground concept, basically they provide a sort of miniatures game without the miniatures, using cards representing units instead. I'm interested in giving the rules a go, but even if I don't like them I reckon these cards will be a good way to try out Impetus, Hail Caesar and whatever other games at the school club. Basically, it is potentially a low cost way of giving boys at the club a taste of big miniatures games without me having to make and transport armies around, which must be good.

Anyone else interested in this?

  1. Using those cards as units to try Impetus is a great idea.
