Help bring Wolfenstein: The Board Game to life with this Kickstarter campaign

Get on board.

A Kickstarter campaign to bring a Wolfenstein board game to life has generated over ten times its original goal.

The fundraiser for Wolfenstein: The Board Game - the campaign for which went live on 14th April, 2020, and has " beta" approval of both MachineGames and Bethesda - is led by Polish tabletop gaming, Archon Studio. At the time of writing, 3,947 backers have contributed £448,803 - that's ten times the modest original goal of £40,420 ($50,000), although the campaign is still some distance away to from realising all of its stretch goals, the greatest of which stretch to hundreds of thousands of pounds.

It doesn't come cheap, though. Whilst you can show your support from as little as $1/£1, to secure a base copy of the board game itself, you need to pledge at least $120/98. Though a significant sum, that will see you obtain Wolfenstein: The Board Game, the "Old Blood" Expansion, the "All-Stars" expansion - exclusive to Kickstarter - and all unlocked stretch goals. You'll need to drop an extra $15 if you'd like the miniatures pre-assembled, too (thanks, PCGN).

The base game includes 182 cards, 16 map titles, and 55 miniatures forged from high-impact plastic, as well as the option to purchase highly detailed plastic floors and walls, too.

The company hopes to see the game ship by August 2021, although - owing to "the regulation of the toy market" - Archon will not be able to ship to Germany or Austria.

"We have loved miniatures ever since we were kids," write Kickstarter creator, Archon Studio. "We grew up with tabletop games and we have decided to make our own. Named after one of classic video games creatures, Archon Studio is dedicated to creating games and miniatures, challenging ourselves with more complex and detailed designs every time.

"Born on Kickstarter platform, Archon lives among its community and funds its projects directly from the fans. Project after project, we create models both in plastic and resin, worth both painting and assembling."
