Greater Than Games is planning a Kickstarter to bring the dark and gloomy world Sleepy Hollow to the tabletop with a miniatures-based board game!
Greater Than Games issued a press release that announced the planned Kickstarter for the Legends of Sleepy Hollow Board Game. The story is based around for characters that are bound together in the search for Ichabod Crane, who has mysteriously vanished from Tarrytown. Let’s take a look at what Greater Than Games had to say about their new game and Kickstarter.
Legends of Sleepy Hollow is Greater Than Games’ newest game from the creative minds of Ben Pinchback and Matt Riddle, creators of the best-selling Fleet, Eggs & Empires, and Wasteland Express Delivery Service. Unfold the tale of the mysterious disappearance of Ichabod Crane through the eyes of four Tarrytown residents who have strange ties to the supernatural in an ever-darkening Sleepy
In Legends of Sleepy Hollow players take on the roles of four residents – undertaker Jeremiah Pincke, minister Elijah Kappel, Revolutionary War veteran Matthias Geroux, and tanner Emily Van Winkle – in a cooperative, miniatures-based, campaign game full of secrets and twists. During the game, players will use an action pool to move about, investigate, interact with their environment, or unleash powerful attacks and abilities that are unique to each character. Once selected, however, these abilities will be unavailable until that character’s action pool has emptied – a process that becomes more complex as that character gains fear.
Players will have to work closely together to overcome their fear, unravel the mysteries of the glen, and become true Legends of Sleepy Hollow. Greater Than Games, LLC will kick off the Legends of Sleepy Hollow Crowdfunding campaign, October 17, 2017, on Kickstarter. A retail pledge option will be available.
