Altar Quest on Kickstarter

Postby Sjeng » Tuesday May 28th, 2019 1:07pm

For those who might be interested: Altar Quest is going live in about 20 minutes.

It looks like HeroQuest, has a single board, BUT plays entirely differently. Designed by the Sadler brothers, who have made some pretty good games. Worth a look!

I can't tell how different it is from Hero Quest because I can't access the Youtube videos, but everything else there is clearly very influenced by it. Looks like some card system is used for attacks, but every reference to it ends in a Youtube video, so no luck there today.

Almost funded already. Looks well done.

It looks promising enough as a dungeon crawler. Everything seems to be composed of card decks, almost like a Card Hunter meets HeroQuest.
I'll definitely watch some of the gameplay videos before deciding whether or not to jump in.
At $109 plus for extras, it requires some research from me.

It looks like the only KS backer exclusive at the moment is a werewolf expansion.
There's a second optional paid expansion available as well. I get why creators and manufacturers keep these themes separate, but I find expansions at release time a little irritating.

Not to come off negative. I love dungeon crawlers , board games, and I want these guys to be successful.
I will look into this to see if it's gonna scratch an itch. Thanks for the heads up!
