Weekly Kickstarter Round Up: Wednesday 24th February 2021

23 February 2021
Holy Kickstarter, Batman, there's loads of new projects!

It's a week of big name updates, as we have everything from Batman, to Root, to Zombicide. As always, let us know which ones you're backing! 

Batman: The Dark Knight Returns – The Game

In a single player game by Morgan Dontanville (Asgard’s Chosen) and Daryl Andrews (Sagrada) and from Cryptozoic Entertainment, comes Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, a strategy board game experience where you'll be tested over four scenarios (books, within which there are four rounds) featuring unique rules, abilities, allies, and boss battles. Of course, it's not simple, as you'll have limited resources and turns, plus you'll need to be keeping an eye on Batman's Grit, Sanirt, or Health.

Root: The Marauder Expansion

The base pledge will also contain Riverfolk Hirelings, and a Landmarks pack, all with the iconic art style of the game.
