Kickstarter has quickly grown to be an amazing platform that is filled with passionate individuals and teams who are looking for funds to help bring those passions from dream to reality. Each week here on House Of The Geeks we are going to take a look at one Kickstarter project we think more people should know about and hopefu
If you’re a fan of area control/resource management games and classic cartoons then you may be interested in hearing about a new area control game called Covil: The Dark Overlords that you can back on Kickstarter right now.
Covil: The Dark Overlords is an area control game for 1 to 4 players that can be played in about 45 minutes. The game is played over 4 days that consist of 3 phases each and at the completion of the 4th day the person with the most victory points wins. It looks like a ton of fun and includes a bunch of cartoon references (such as Castle Greyskull and Battle Cat to name just two) that any pop culture fan is going to love.
Your three phases consist of summoning troops, performing actions and then claiming gold based on territories controlled. There are also relics you can use each turn to help you achieve more during each turn. The rules look simple to learn and they claim you can learn the entire game in about 10 minutes.
With a great theme, fun artwork and easy to learn rules I think that Covil: The Dark Overlords is going to be a massive hit for VesuVias and while the game is currently 100% funded, you can help them reach their stretch goals and unlock even more fun stuff for the game.
