The Drowned Earth Skirmish Game

Post by danadam » Thu May 11, 2017 9:00 am

Hey All,

I wondered if any of you guys had backed The Drowned Earth on Kickstarter?

Seems like a great game with a lot of fluff/lore but also seems like a slick game too.

Worth a look see, especially if you are into shadow war armageddon.

After playing a few games at Salute this year, I can definitely say I'm backing this for the gameplay as much as the minis (gorgeous as they are). It's a really slick system, very cinematic, and the emphasis on agility and parkour style leaping about the place are very cool. The dice mechanic is easy to pick up, but produces tense, exciting results. And the setting is pretty unique - the jungle terrain they had at Salute was dope. All in all well worth checking out for more than just the minis!

I am absolutely loving this game. Printed off the rules and built a table for it. The play style is very cinematic and lots of fun. If you love building terrain you should definitely check this kickstarter out as it's in the last 3 days.

The Kickstarter Campaign is awesome, the last few day and we are in the competition week. Participate and with good luck, you can get your fluff into the official background or win some cool prizes.

Hey folks! I'm the moron who designed this game :D. Just thought I'd drop a few pretty pictures on you all! First off, give you an idea of the savings to be made by picking this up right now, rather than at retail:

Last hours of the campaign, I upped my pledge to the all in level - I think £200 for the entire line so far is very good value. Any London gamers interested in playing once this lands, PM me!
