Steamforged Games Dark Souls board game is on it's way to becoming a massive Tabletop success. Just a couple days into it's Kickstarter the project has smashed its goal of $70,000 by a large margin. With (as of posting) $785,000+ in funds and 26 days left to go on funding, it's likely they will see well over $1,000,000 in funding!
What's more impressive is the team has managed to raise this money offering no additional incentives. Currently, they have an option for donators to purchase the game for $80 or a retailer package that gives 6 games for $200.
$80 is a lot for your average tabletop game but the price is justified by licensing and a crap ton of figures!
Let's not forget the ridiculous amount of stretch goals!

The game looks incredibly challenging and perhaps a little difficult for those who are just now getting into Tabletop. I'm not saying don't get it, but make sure to work your way up with similar styles of game before diving into this one! Just take a look at the boss battle phase if you don't think there's a lot to hold on to.
Despite it's initial difficulty to learn, it looks like a hell of a lot of fun to play! Join the Kickstarter here!
