But beware, the townsfolk will fight back and they will come for you and your beast. The first player to reach 15 victory points will be declared the winner and their beast will be known forever, as the most exquisite monstrosity to have ever walked the Earth (this might be an exaggeration). This will be the first game from Turtle Dream Stuidos and they have already reached their funding goal.

  • 2-5 Players
  • 15 Minutes per player
  • Age 5+

In Gondola, players race through the Venice canals hoping to become the winner of the historic Regata Storica di Venezia. Players help to build the canal course with tiles played from their hand. The tiles determine how fast players may go through speed and current, as well as the capacity of that part of the canal. Canal tiles may also have special abilities that could hinder opponents or boost the player who lays it down. Players race through the waterways and try to reach the finish line first. The game features over 100 playable tiles, giving the game a lot of replayability.

They’ve also got animals, Cthulhu, and Greek mythology characters lined up. I’ve bought some of their meeples in the past and have always been really happy with their products. I got a set of Totoro meeples at Dice Tower Con this year, as well as some upgrades for my copy of Francis Drake. They have a ton of different pledge options and add-ons for this campaign, so go check it out.
