The Sword and Sorcery Epic Fantasy Co-op board & miniature game is the sixth Kickstarter project of Ares Games, following five highly successful campaigns: in 2013, Sails of Glory (delivered to backers in January, 2014) and Galaxy Defenders (delivered to backers in April, 2014); in 2014, Galaxy Defenders - The Earth Strikes Back (delivered to in September, 2015), Age of Conan Strategy Board Game - It's back! (scheduled for delivery in January 2016); and this year, Wings of Glory – Giants of the Sky (delivering in November 2015). Ares Games also acted as consulting partner of the crowdfunding project “Restoration of Pazzi Chapel Loggia,” of the Opera di Santa Croce (Florence, Italy), which successfully ended on December 20th, funding the restoration of a masterpiece of Renaissance architecture.
