When the tabletop game Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood of Venice came to Kickstarter, the fans immediately took interest in the project. Over a single day, the campaign raised $450k pledged by over 4000 backers with the developers originally looking for “just” $98k. In fact, the already-pledged sum is enough to cover for over half of the stretch goals!
The game is licenced by Ubisoft Entertainment and is going to be available in English or French (you will be able to choose the language in the pledge manager after the Kickstarter campaign is over).
Here’s the game’s description from the Kickstarter page:
Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood of Venice is a tabletop board game with miniatures aiming to capture the essence of Assassin’s Creed and turn it into a fun, fully cooperative game for 1 to 4 players.
It is played in a campaign spanning several months in 1509 in which you play a small team of Assassins in charge of developing the Headquarters of the Brotherhood of Assassins in Venice, after Ezio Auditore da Firenze has defeated Cesare Borgia and his allies, between the events of Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood and Assassin’s Creed: Revelations.
Players will use their Assassin’s skills, equipment and their own sense of tactics to complete various objectives while evading detection from the Guards.
The campaign will pit you against Templars, let you explore unknown events of the Brotherhood in Venice, and determine the fate of the Brotherhood in the famous City of Masks.
