Rum and Bones, empieza su kickstarter con exito.

Ha empezado esta misma madrugada, el kickstarter del re-diseñado juego Ron and Bones, conocido sobretodo hace algunos años, por la audiencia más fiel, a los llamadas juegos de skirmish.
Separandose los propietarios y vendiendo los derechos a Coolmini, nos llega esta nueva versión, más próxima a los juegos de mesa que a los skirmish, con un buen montón de minis y un nuevo planteamiento.
De momento ha cumplido ya sus expectativas, veremos que sorpresas nos depara durante los días que le quedan.

About this project

Rum & Bones is a miniatures board game where players control fantastic pirate crews engaged in fierce combat. Inspired by MOBA style video games, Rum & Bones’ gameplay is deep, fast-paced, and highly strategic. The game pits two pirate factions, controlled by 2 to 6 players, whose ships are locked in combat, with each crew attempting to board the enemy ship and disable it.
Each ship’s single-minded crew of Deckhands and Bosuns charge headlong across the gangplanks to attack key deck features on the enemy ship. These lowly crewmen are not directly controlled by the players. They form a constantly-replenishing mob of pirates charging towards the enemy, but the crews are evenly matched, so it’s up to the player-controlled Heroes to shift the tide of battle!

Each faction has five types of Heroes at their disposal: Captain, Quartermaster, Swashbuckler, Gunner and Brute. Each of these roles has its own general place in the battle. However, each Hero is still unique, with their own set of attacks, abilities, and reactions to crush the enemy or give their crew the push they need!

The Wellsport Brotherhood and Bone Devils factions included in the core box also have access to unique powers via their Tide Decks. The 30 cards in these decks (most of them unique to each faction) can be played at different times, bringing about unexpected effects, surprise attacks, welcome boosts, or even summon a Sea Dragon!
Just beware that these startling abilities might just attract the attention of that mythical terror from the depths, the Kraken! 
The Kraken and Sea Dragon are enemies to all pirates, but their intervention can be advantageous to you in the right moment. And slaying these legendary creatures might give you the glory necessary to be victorious in battle!

Stretch Goals
As we push forward in our quest for funding we will unlock a bevy of treasure and rewards that all the crew will benefit from!
We've smashed through our first stretch goal at $75,000, backers! Meaning all boxes of Rum and Bones now include a second sculpt for their Deckhands.
$100,000 has been reached! We've unlocked a third Deckhand sculpt for every box of Rum and Bones!
At $125,000 we've unlocked Ahab, the Vengeful. This legendary Gunner is a Mercenary who will work for any crew in Rum and Bones, provided you've the coin to pay!
At $150,000 we'll unlock Leopold, the Carver of Cardova! This merciless Brute will cleave a bloody path in the name of any crew willing to hire him! 
Shipping information - Please take note
Based on past experience, we will be charging shipping after the Kickstarter concludes based on the actual costs incurred to ship. We will collect this via our pledge manager after the campaign concludes. This is so we can be fair to all our backers as shipping is rarely one size fits all, and also give you more stretch goodies and possibly a choice of carrier options.  
We will ship your rewards at our cost to our international hubs. Depending on where in the world you are, we will either ship you from our hub in Germany (EU backers), China (Asia Pacific backers), Canada (Canadian backers), Australia (Australia and New Zealand backers) or Atlanta (USA and the rest of the world). As a rough estimate, the game will cost about $10 to ship in the USA and to Hong Kong, about $15 to Australia, about $15-$25 in the EU and Canada, all the way up to $50 to Singapore and South America,  but this may increase or decrease based on the quantity of stretch goals we might unlock and your carrier choices.
Please note that while we do our best to get you your rewards in a timely manner, you may not necessarily receive your rewards before the product makes it into distribution in your own country or before it's made available in conventions and special promotion opportunities  We hope that the special price and exclusive items you will get during the Kickstarter will make up for any such possible lag. However, if this is something that is not acceptable to you, please do not back this project but instead wait for the retail release. Thank you for your understanding.
