A WTF Kickstarter - Courts and Castles (Uno meets Risk meets Battleship)
The ranks of The Taverners can be scary, at least when they identify a What The F@CK? Kickstarter, and this one is a class all by itself.
Doesn't the above pic just make you want you to run out and grab a copy of Courts and Castles? No? Why not?
How about 79 pledge levels? No, I didn't count but +Rick Hull did.
79 pledge levels, and not one actually gets you a copy of the game.
So, what is the game about?
I have no idea what was held back. I couldn't justify reading the 19 paragraphs that followed. He says he simplified it from an earlier version, so it's complex but not head scratching. I have my doubts.
Name a serf for a buck or a city-state for $150, you still don't get a copy of the game. Which is probably best.
I'm still stuck on 79 pledge levels. I don't even know if the limited pledges (as each pledge level is limited) would allow the goal of $3,690 to be met. God only knows I'm not doing that math...
