The large campaign style and one vs many genres have had a lot of exposure lately, with the majority being Kickstarter projects. One such project that I thought had interest but ended up letting go by for a number of reasons was 2015s Conan from Monolith Board Games.

This put Conan before the current trend of massive games, but at the time also made it more of a risk to me. As always, hindsight is 20-20, and Conan has proven to be a very successful game over the last couple of years. It got to the point that I was even starting to consider trying to track down a copy, but then I started hearing rumblings of a new project coming on the horizon based on the Conan game system.

The project? It’s called Batman: Gotham City Chronicles. And it’s coming to Kickstarter at the end of February this year.

It’s not an exact copy of the Conan system. Character abilities have been tweaked, both for thematic reasons and I believe from player feedback. There have also added new dice for different actions, making this a very dice heavy affair.

Similarities with Conan include the massive number of miniatures with the game. DC has already confirmed over 100 miniature sculpts, and as this is a Kickstarter and uses the Batman license, I can’t imagine the count stopping there. Some of the sculpts already revealed look amazing. I just wish my painting skills were up to the people that painted these promotional pieces!

There will be a lot more information at the end of February, but for the moment if your curious mark the 28th on your calendar and check out the project on Kickstarter!
