Now’s Your Chance to Get the Folklore: The Affliction Board Game

This highly talked about game has been hard to find lately, but now Folklore: The Affliction from Greenbrier Games has gone back to Kickstarter for a second printing. If you’ve been waiting for your chance to own this game, your opportunity has arrived.

This Kickstarter is for the second printing of Folklore: The Affliction, an immersive dark fantasy cooperative adventure for 1-5 players. Your characters will grow and progress through a series of stories in their quest to rid the land of evil. Every story is broken into chapters, allowing players to control the length of each game session. Most chapters take approximately 45-60 minutes to complete, and almost assuredly spell doom for you would-be heroes.

The second edition of the Folklore: The Affliction contains cardboard standees instead of plastic miniatures in the core boxes. The 76 miniatures (in 44 unique sculpts) from the world of Folklore are available packaged separately. Already own the core game, but ready to delve deeper into the darkness? The “Minstrel” pledge level contains seven full-length stories, the Adventure Creation Kit for crafting your own tales, and a Kickstarter exclusive embossed metal coin with inlaid color.

This Kickstarter’s goal is to build a larger community around this game. To help accomplish this, we’ve separated the plastic miniatures into their own box, allowing us to make the core Folklore experience more widely available at a lower price point. Though there is no “premier” level for this campaign, all previous items are available as add-ons for you to mix and match as you see fit. Note that some of these, like the Terrain pack and Demons & Dark Artifacts, are still Kickstarter exclusive. As the community grows, you guys, the vanguard of this realm, will have opportunities to shape the future of Kremel with story creation contests and community votes for branching story paths.
