The Final Days of New Bedford on Kickstarter

Craig's picture

New Bedford has really been a hit with gamers on Kickstarter, and, at the time of writing this post, funding is sitting at just shy of $80,000. That's not too bad, considering the $25,000 funding goal was reached within 24 hours!

Backers have been so excited that we've smashed through eight stretch goals! All backers on the New Bedford Kickstarter will not only get the base game that we had originally planned, but also the White Whale promo pack, a mini-expansion of even more buildings, the Ship's Log mini-expansion, and the 5th player expansion. The base game also had its components upgraded and a solo mode included! Once we get to $80,000, there will be more one component upgrade, with wooden first player and round markers.

Nat Levan, the designer of New Bedford, has created a fun game called Nantucket that can be added onto New Bedford pledges for only $6. Nantucket is a two player Rabbit game, set during the same time period as New Bedford, on the island of Nantucket. Players will just need a couple of the cards from the game and a few coins (also included in the box) to have a satisfying game of whaling and town building.

There are just a couple of days left in the Kickstarter. Let's finish strong!
