August 13, 2017: Crowdfunding Focus - A Song Of Ice & Fire: Tabletop Miniatures Game (http://www.sjgames.com/ill/a/2017-08-13)

It's Sunday, and for many people (myself included), that means a new Game of Thrones episode is on. However, I'll also be watching a different game: Cool Mini or Not's A Song of Ice & Fire: Tabletop Miniatures Game (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/cmon/a-song-of-ice-and-fire-tabletop-miniatures-game) on Kickstarter. It's made over a million dollars, and still climbing, but there are some amazing models yet to be unlocked.*

The game is based on the novels by George R.R. Martin, so you may notice the artwork has a bit more of a painted style versus the television series. However, even if you eschewed the books for the show, many of your favorite characters will take the field .*.*. or work behind the scenes. One of the unique elements of the game is its use of Non-Combat Units, on their own intrigue board. This board will provide your forces with additional powers and strategies, and gives players a way to utilize characters whose lack of combat prowess makes them hard to translate onto a battlefield.

Ultimately, though, the miniatures are what you're here for, and there are a ton. I mean, it's in the company name, right? Starks, Lannisters, mercenaries, and even 3-D terrain and playmats adorn the campaign, through pledges or add-ons.

If you're interested in pledging, back soon, because it ends shortly. Watch their video for a bit more detail on how to play if you need some convincing.*

Just remember; in the game of thrones, you win or you die.*
