Wyrd: The Other Side KS – 4 Days Left

the-other-side-wyrd

Only 4 days to go – tons of add-ons and all stretch goals open. It’s a no brainer to back this!

Multiple stretch goals are open for every pledge level, and and there are a ton of add-ons available.

The Other Side is an upcoming game about allegiances doing battle across the Earth in a fight for supremacy and survival. Using 32mm miniatures, players will control squads of troops and massive titans as they attempt to defeat their foes and seize control of Earth.. Conflict is resolved through the use of a deck of cards, allowing players more control over their own destinies. The Other Side shares a world with Malifaux, but the games are not compatible.

The epic battles taking place across the Earth are played out on a 6 x 4 table with scattered, light terrain. Alternating activations keep you involved in the action every step of the way, while a five turn game keeps the fighting quick and bloody. The average game lasts about two hours.

Magic, steampunk, monsters, and soldiers collide to make the battlefields of The Other Side action-packed. In order to get you into the action sooner, every model in The Other Side will come preassembled and ready for play!

The Other Side also takes advantage of movement bases that allow small groups of models – known as Fireteams – to act independently during the game, making gameplay smooth and easy despite the number of models on the table.

The models in The Other Side are 32mm scale with high levels of detail, allowing painters plenty of opportunity to paint their Champions, Squads, and Titans in whatever way they wish.

 

The Kickstarter has earned over $260,000 – which means there are plenty of rewards and stretch goals unlocked.

  • Sam Nolton

    I backed this kickstarter, super excited to get my hands on the miniatures and try out the game! It looks good, and might even be able to compete with 40k or Hordes/Warmachine.

    • Cergorach

      Maybe it can compete with your gaming time, but with only 1400 backers and it being stuck, but at less then 1400 backers this isn’t a 40k or Warmahordes ‘killer’. Currently it’s been stuck for almost two weeks at around the $260k.

  • MMO Builder

    Backed, I would heartily recommend this game to anyone who is looking to branch out into a new tabletop experience. The fluff and the rules are top notch, and it uses the deck of cards that work so well in Malifaux

    • Parthis

      I think that’s my problem though; I have Malifaux. ToS is different enough to stand on it’s own, but it’s seriously lacking in depth.

      Malifaux is a beautifully tight, well crafted game. ToS is lacking. I can’t bring myself to throw $160 to preorder this when I could throw the money at faux.

  • OhShiny

    The minis are so lame though.

    I’m excited about a new game entering the market, but the KS has expensive minis that don’t stand out even compared to minis made for malifaux by the same company.

    I’ll wait until people here start playing the game, the MSRP is so close to the KS prices that it’s not a big loss for me anyways.

    If I could use the same figs for malifaux (maybe if there was an add-on for malifaux stat cards) I’d be all over it.

    For now: Pass.

    • MMO Builder

      I don’t agree, I am loving the minis, but I guess that’s subjective. I think the KS has done OK, but there isn’t anything here that is a ‘must have now’ so a few others are thinking like you and picking it up once it gains traction.

    • ZeeLobby

      I actually really like the minis, but the price they’re asking for pre-assembled PVC is pretty ridiculous.

  • MMO Builder

    Ick! I just found out the minis are a PVC blend, I don’t know how I feel about that…

    • OhShiny

      Pre-assembled PVC minis with the usual “Trust us! This time it doesn’t suck!” excuse :p.

      We’ll see. Unboxings will be interesting.

      • Cergorach

        You obviously haven’t seen CMoN Blood Rage and Zombicide: Black Plague. Or even beter: Journey.

        High quality preassembled PVC can be awesome! But just not what I was expecting from Wyrd…

        The pricing isn’t that great compared to the risks imho. And some of the sculpts don’t look all that great. I really like the monster factions…

  • ZeeLobby

    Yeah. I was going to jump in originally, as I like the mechanics, but at the price they’re asking it’ll be almost the same MSRP so I might as well wait. In a world where skirmish games are growing in popularity over large wargames because of both affordability and quickness of play, I’m not sure why you’d head in the other direction…
