The Kickstarter campaign to fund the new epic-fantasy cooperative board game Sword and Sorcery entered in its second week with great news to people who intend to back the project, and want to know more about its gameplay: a visit to a Sword & Sorcery gaming table, thanks to the digital demo developed by Tabletopia, granting an in-depth look at its (beta) components, and – together with the beta rulebook, now available for download – actually giving the possibility to play the first scenario.

Sword and Sorcery was launched on Kickstarter on October, 15th, reaching the initial funding goal of $ 75,000 in less than 90 minutes. In one week, the project got over $260,000 pledged, with 2560 backers and 16 stretch goals unlocked – 10 funding goals and 6 social goals.

Thanks to these achievements, new contents will be added to the Sword and Sorcery Kickstarter Edition, including additional figures (Sally the Wolf, Death Knights, Orc King, Skeld Berserker/Slayer, Werewolves and a Lycanthrope hero), additional cards (Treasure, Adventure, Blessing and Enemy Cards), new double-sided map tiles (Cursed Crypts), additional quests (Act II – Darkness Falls), and more.

Other stretch goals have been already announced, and many additional items can be unlocked in the next three weeks. As announced at the campaign’s launch, the beta rulebook was made public, and it’s now available for download. The rules, combined with the virtual gaming table, developed by the team of Tabletopia (a sophisticated virtual table system recently funded on Kickstarter), actually allow to play the first scenario and “try” the game.

More good news this week is that, thanks to new fulfilling agreements, no customs charges will apply to rewards shipped to backers in Australia, Canada, European Union, or USA.
