There’s something awesome about getting on Kickstarter and seeing a fellow Singaporean setting up something bold and ambitious. Call it finding a kindred spirit, or just being in awe of their sheer ingenuity, it’s still an amazing feeling.
The campaign in question here is Avertigos, “a unique Board Game with moddable Sail-Ships engaging in innovative 3D tactical manoeuvres on the table top.” If that description alone doesn’t tell you: “damn, this is gonna be awesome,” I don’t know what will.
While a simpler, 2-Player Duelling Kit is available at the very reasonable $67, the game’s true fun lurks in the $127 tier for the base set. And while this is honestly already a mighty good price for a game involving as many accessories as this, the Avertigos Deluxe Set is where’s the party’s really at.
For $151, not only dose this set add the base game with a thrown in medium-sized Skirmish Mat, it will also include a slew of unlocked stretch goals from their three stretch categories: Funding, Social, and Community. However, there are only 34 slots remaining for the Deluxe Set at the Super Early Bird cost of $151, and any subsequent pledgers would have to contribute $193 (still totally worth it, but as I’m already toe-ing the poverty line, I’m seizing the Super Early Bird advantage!).
So make that 33 slots remaining.
That’s the Avertigos Base Set (at $127), mind you. Base. And they have a $307 tier that promises not only all unlocked stretch goals, but also a bunch of their optional add-on sets… at this point, I’m pretty sure their shipping is being done by their very own Singa Sari vessels.
