The Sword and Sorcery campaign on Kickstarter is starting its final week, with many goals achieved already.

The campaign reached the outstanding mark of 3,000 backers on November, 2nd. With 7 days before the end, Sword & Sorcery is already the most successful project on the crowdfunding platform for Ares (surpassing the $276,745 of Sails of Glory, in 2013), and it entered the "Top 100" of most funded tabletop games on Kickstarter. Funding is currently over $350,000 and 29 stretch goals have been unlocked, adding lots of new content to the Kickstarter edition of the game.

Other than the campaign numbers, the game has gathered outstanding attention also in the biggest online board game community, BoardGameGeek. The Sword and Sorcery giveaway contest held from October, 26th, to November, 1st, sponsored by Ares Games, had 5,063 entrants, entering the "Top 10" of the BGG giveaway contests with more participants.

A new and fun gameplay video has also been produced, created for the project by Labirinto Filmes and Jogando Offline. It shows very well the "spirit" of our game:

Since the campaign was launched, on October 15th, many new contents were unlocked due to funding stretch goals and social achievements: new figures, cards, components and quests. At this point, the Kickstarter edition of Sword & Sorcery will feature over 64 figures, 30 double-sided map tiles, more than 260 cards and 100 tokens, one rulebook and two storybooks, for a total of 14 quests - more than twice as much content than the Retail Edition

The five-headed dragon, Vastaryous.

Backers can also get new Add-Ons to enhance their game experience, including a complete expansion with an impressive five-headed dragon: Vastaryous’ Lair, including everything needed to play four Quests, with new Epic powers, armors, and items, and new mechanics to resolve the climactic fight against Vastaryous - an opponent even more powerful than a “normal” Master Enemy.

The Kickstarter campaign ends on November 13th 3 AM CET, but there are more goals to be revealed in the final stretch.
