I’ve raved before about Gloomhaven and how it’s the number one ranked board game on BoardGameGeek. So it shouldn’t as much of a surprise to tell you that its standalone sequel called “Frosthaven” already raised $5 million dollars in the first day of its Kickstarter project. It’s original goal was just $500,000 and there’s no telling where it’s going to end up at when it ends on May 1st. The tentatively scheduled delivery time frame is March 2021.
I need to scrounge up some pennies and nickels from the couch cushions now. I’m going to be all in for the $240 tier. The Broken Token organizer, solo scenarios, and other goodies are all worth it. Even if all of that seems too much, getting the base game for $100 is already cheaper than the MSRP of $160. Shipping and taxes do apply obviously and those will be charged afterwards through their order fulfillment partner Backerkit.
And if you haven’t gotten Gloomhaven, you can add it to your pledge now, and it’ll be shipped to you over the summer. It’s sold out on Amazon but the post-Kickstarter pledge manager has your back. The game is also $40 off MSRP through this offer.
Even though it’s a year or more away, I’m really excited. There’s going to be daily puzzles for the veteran players to solve and keep us busy for at least a month. If you have any kind of affinity for board games in a fantasy atmosphere, you should really check it out. FBTB makes no commission on pledges, I’m just sharing something I think is worth sharing. Even if you don’t take my word for it, there’s tons of reviews of the original Gloomhaven online to consider.
