Miskatonic University: The Restricted Collection Board Game - Kickstarter


Chaosium have launched a crowd funder for their first Lovecraftian board game in over 30 years (their last one was the original Arkham Horror in 1987). Their planned new board game is titled: Miskatonic University: The Restricted Collection, and has been designed by Reiner Knizia (certainly no stranger to board game design).

 

In Miskatonic University: The Restricted Collection, "Players are MU professors, desperately searching the treacherous Restricted Collection, looking for fragments of eldritch lore and arcane sigils to help the Chief Librarian, Dr Henry Armitage [to] defeat [a nameless horror unleashed by reckless grad students]..."

 

The Kickstarter runs until the 8th May, with a target of $25,000 USD.

Miskatonic University: The Restricted Collection Board Game

 

In their curiosity, reckless graduate students have unleashed a nameless horror from the bowels of Miskatonic University's famous Orne Library.

 

Players are MU professors, desperately searching the treacherous Restricted Collection, looking for fragments of eldritch lore and arcane sigils to help the Chief Librarian, Dr Henry Armitage, defeat it. But, forbidden knowledge comes at a price...

 

Players always have the opportunity to go deeper, to push their luck, but in so doing, risk their sanity and their souls.

 

Includes

  • 5 Player Desk Boards
  • 80 Library Cards
  • 5 sets of Defence Cards
  • Scoring Cards
  • Rule Book

 

A Reiner Knizia game for 2 to 5 players, taking around 30-45 minutes to play, ages 13+.

 

Kickstarter buy-in, $25 USD plus shipping [TBD]. Estimated delivery: November 2018.

I'm excited as well. I'm always on the lookout for a Cthulhu related game. This is actually my first time backing anything on Kickstarter.

The Kicktarter is almost at $40K/$25K USD after three days and heading for its third stretch goal (stationery upgrade).

Please back it :) I'd like the italian translation eheh :P

Closed at $106,994/$25,000 USD from 3,697 backers.
