Fandom Funding: Board Game “Set a Watch: Swords of the Coin”

Fandom Funding is where we feature a geeky/nerdy crowdfunding project that highlights an existing fandom or looks to create a new one.

Today’s Fandom Funding is the boardgame “Set a Watch: Swords of the Coin.”

Set a Watch: Swords of the Coin is a 60-90 minute cooperative adventure puzzle game for 1-4 players. Swords of the Coin is a standalone expansion featuring the same critically-acclaimed gameplay along with some new twists centered around collecting coin and buying items from the merchant.  The expansion is fully compatible with the original game’s creatures, locations, and characters, which can all be mixed and matched together with the original Set a Watch.

If you’re unfamiliar with the original game, Set a Watch is a cooperative game where you must combat fiendish creatures at nine locations while keeping your campfire burning. Every round you will visit a new location and pick an adventurer to rest and take camp actions. The adventurers on watch attempt to clear a line of creatures with their dice and abilities. The original deluxe game became a reality thanks to over 5,800 backers and features 8 different adventurer classes.

The Kickstarter campaign has been fully funded on day one! That doesn’t mean the campaigning is done. Rock Manor Games are hoping you can help them with some stretch goals.
