Almost two and a half years ago, a little project named Kingdom Death: Monster hit Kickstarter. Now, nearly two years late, it has finally arrived at my doorstep. Is it late? Yes, very. Am I mad? Not in the least. The campaign went far beyond the wildest dreams of the people running it. How big? Well, it was originally scheduled to be a standard enthusiast board game box, 12″ by 12″ of plastic and cardboard. It ended up being twice that size because SO MUCH EXTRA GOODNESS got added thanks to the overwhelming support. Not only that, they spent the extra time adding more art and content as well. Suffice it to say, it is more than anyone expected when they chose to back the project.

Now, I have not dived into the rules just yet. It just showed up on September 21st. But, here are my unboxing pictures. Enjoy!


The Box!


First thing inside. Thank you…bakcers? Oops!


The back of the Survivor box. I ❤ Poots indeed.


And inside the Survivor box? Many models.


The game in the box in the box in the plastic wrap. The flash reveals the glossy logo against the matte box.


The box without plastic wrap. Can really see that beautiful cover art.


The beautiful back art.


First thing inside the box.


The flat bits and chits.


Tiles and counters.


The board. Its a tri fold as long as the box! Its BIG.


Under the board. So many cards and pads.


Character and village sheets with dice.


The instructions. Note that it is matte black. That yellow on the left is the spine. Its about 1/2″ thick!

And the logo/text with a flash to see the glossy details.

Its an impressive box! Well worth the investment and the wait. Looking forward to digging into this MONSTER!
