3 Minute Read
Oct 9 2020

The day has come and gone. Firelock Games finally took Blood & Plunder: Raise the Black to Kickstarter. This campaign funded in just four hours!!!

At the time of writing this article, they have already nearly doubled their initial goals in backers. I find that so exciting! The Raise the Black Kickstarter is one that I waited for with high anticipation. It is so nice to see it setting sail and smashing through its funding goals. For those that don’t know, Blood & Plunder is an excellent 28mm miniature pirate game. So, what is the goal of this Kickstarter, to bring a new 2-player starter set to market. That will make it even easier to get in on this game. Let’s take a look at what is in that starter box.

A New 2 Player Starter Set for Blood and Plunder

What is the best way to get a friend into a new game? Collect two armies and invite them over to play. That is exactly what the new Blood & Plunder: Blackbeard vs Maynard boxed set will do.

After the Kickstarter, this game will go full retail. If you own a retail store, make sure to speak to them to see if you want to carry their products. Their minis and models are absolutely gorgeous. The prettiest I have ever seen.

So, What is in that beautiful looking box? Below is a summary of the contents.
