If you never heard of either set, prepare to feast your lovely eyes on one of the coolest boardgame collections ever created! Be sure to buy and help back the project if you can, and spread the word to everyone you know, especially boardgame lovers. Let’s help this Kickstarter project get funded! The project ends on October 15th 2012, with 15 Days to go and $2000 left for the project to get funded.
Like The Reliquary Collection before it, The Midnight Collection is a set of 8 boardgames, created with the highest-quality materials in a very unique format.
Each game in The Midnight Collection comes in a suede leather pouch with the game pieces to play the game inside the pouch, which is securely wrapped via an attached satin drawstring cord that wraps around the pouch to close the included pieces securely inside and allow for easy portability.
The pouch doubles as the gameboard, with the board LASER-ETCHED onto the material, providing you with a board that should stay usable and vibrant for a long time to come. When you want to play, just pull the string and lay out the board, the pieces will be right there for you to dive in. Last but definitely not least, the game pieces are made of solid marble or high-quality wood, and the rules are created using extremely durable composite paper, and are laced onto the satin drawstring so you always have the rules available and can never lose them!
For the Midnight collection, each of the game’s is horror-themed, just in time for Halloween! Each of the 8 “Monsters & Mayhem” games is easy to learn, fun to play, and include games of strategy and chance, each with varying rules, themes, gameboards and included pieces!
These individual games are:
* The Fore Horsemen (2-4 Player Party Game)
* Scared Sheet-Less (2-4 Player Lucky-Strategy Game)
* The Stake Out (2-Player Unequal Forces Strategy Game)
* That’s A Wrap (2-4 Player Race Game)
* Frankie (1-4 Player Cooperative Game)
* Them Bones (4-Player Strategy Game)
* Where-Wolf? (2-6 Player Hunt Game)
* Zombified (4-10 Player Elimination Game)
You can buy each of the individual games of your choice on the Midnight Collection Kickstarter for $30 per game, and there are lots of additional add-ons you can purchase to add more fun to your customized set.
Or, if you’re feeling the boardgame-love and prophesying the many fun-filled nights these games will bring with family and friends, you can spring for the full 8-game set, packaged in a beautiful wooden Limited Edition box with a laser-etched leather top for $350!
Meanwhile, $500 dollars will net you all 8 games, plus the chest to store them in, as well as every additional Accessory!
Accessories include a lot of 70 game pieces and stones (enough to play all 8 games), 8 glass mini-vial necklaces (one for each game), 9 unique Walnut Wood Coins (one for each game), a lot of 64 wooden walnut bones (stack, build, create, play!), and a number of additional Achievements that will be unlocked as more people back the project! Achievements include Avatars for each game, a Bibelot Necklace, glow-in-the-dark Marble stone game pieces(!), a Midnight Collection Keychain, and more! Additional Achievements will be revealed as the The Midnight Collection Kickstar closes in on the final days.
Either way you shake it, this is a beautiful and unique piece of gaming art!
Additionally, Bibelot Games is a small, independent, American-made company based out of my home state of Arizona in Cave Creek (I live in Phoenix). They are offering game lovers the highest-quality boardgames, that are sure to be enjoyed by your kids and grandkids for generations, and make a great collectible or display piece, even if you aren’t big on board games.
Thus, I urge you to back the project and support Bibelot Games with their Midnight Collection Set! Labors of love like this need our support to thrive!
Look forward to additional videos showing off a few of the games as well as reviews of two of the Midnight Collection Set games (The Stake Out and Where-Wolf) and one game from The Reliquary Collection (The Royal Game of Ur), in the near future!
Eventually I will review the entire Midnight Collection and Reliquary Collection sets early next year! I CAN’T WAIT!
