Hot potato! Gamelyn Games has once again created a Tiny Epic Game that is burning through Kickstarter like a wildfire! Tiny Epic Quest has crushed its goal and is now rampaging through its stretch goals.
The game is a 1-4 player sandbox adventure. Each player will control their group of intrepid adventurers on a quest to beat up monsters, learn kickass spells, and loot epic magic items! After five rounds the game ends and whichever group gains the most points from their adventures wins! The game is played in two phases: Day & Night. During the day, you’ll have limited-action-selection, grid-style movement, and a chance to solve puzzles to gain benefits like advancing on the magic track or gaining health.
During the night, you will try to accomplish the tasks by rolling dice. You’ll be gambling with your health with each task you attempt so you can either score big or crash and burn (losing your progress for the round), but the rewards you gain might just be worth the risk.
Tiny Epic Quest comes with 17 map cards which each have 2 locations so you have 34 possible areas to explore, 5 dice, 20 tokens, Magic and Round tracking mats, player mats, and a ton of cards. I will never understand how they pack so much stuff into those tiny Tiny Epic boxes. It must be magic!
Gamelyn Games is also adding a really unique component to the game: Item-Holding Meeples! These little meeps have holes in their arms which allow them to carry the items they pick up. This just blows my mind. They look so darned cool!
As a Kickstarter backer you will be able to get some exclusive content: Quest for the Golden Mushrooms! It is a mini-expansion that will only be available through the Kickstarter and some convention sales. In the quest you are trying to liberate the most magical mushroom folk from some fearsome goblins who have taken over their home. The expansion comes with 2 extra maps and 7 Wooden Mushroom Folk Tokens.
Jess: I am stupid excited about this game. For $24 you’ll get the full Kickstarter version with all stretch goals and the Quest for the Golden Mushrooms plus a print and play version of the game, so you can start playing before the game arrives. Gamelyn Games always puts out a great product and we’ve been really happy with previous Tine Epic Games. Check out our reviews of Tiny Epic Western, Tiny Epic Galaxies, Tiny Epic Defenders, and Tiny Epic Kingdoms.
We’ve already backed it and so have a lot of other people (funded in 9 minutes!). Grab your sword/mace/bow/wand/other goblin smashing implement of destruction and run on over to the Tiny Epic Quest Kickstarter!
