Reality Check

  • Claim:

    2VS2 Mode

  • Reality:

    A new mode for the lineage of POSTHUMAN board game. The ability to add a teammate gives an enjoyable depth to the game which requires very strategic communication and joint goals. Several layers of complexity are added to the competitive nature of the original gameplay. The exploration together as teammates is a great opportunity for fun.

    Gameplay

  • Reality:

    The campaign page itself offers an extremely detailed description of how to play which is most beneficial for potential backers. With the multi-faceted element of the survival game, there will be a steep learning curve for beginner gamers.

    What's In The Box?

  • Reality:

    The base model includes well made 4 character cards + miniatures, 4 player boards and 24 marker pegs, and the basic pieces for gameplay. The fortress centerpiece is not included on the base price point, and is only included in the KS Exclusive Deluxe Edition. Pay attention to the details of the different tiers for pledges,and what is included.

    Risks and Challenges

  • Reality:

    Self-admittedly Mighty Boards has had difficulty on the previous 6 releases of games. They have switched printers and manufacturers through positive recommendation, but there are always uncertainties that cannot be foreseen on such a high volume project.

Bottom Line

Mighty Boards has previously released 6 products in the same genre as Posthuman Saga. The team is evolving and learning from mistakes while providing very challenging and enjoyable games. New modes are the highlight of this version, including the opportunity for 2vs2. Complexity is high, but from early tested gameplay, it is not overwhelming as it initially appears. The realistic date for release is a wise choice by the developers to under promise and potentially over deliver. This may help out with the new manufacturers and printers that Mighty Boards is now working with.
