A new board game on Kickstarter remixes chess by blending in elements of collectible card games like Magic: The Gathering. It feels both new and familiar, though it likely won’t convert people who don’t like chess or gritty, Lord of the Rings-style fantasy.
Brian Wolf bathes the Tiny Swords universe in baby blues and pinks. It’s a style that sticks out against the darker, edgier styles that many strategy board games take. Folks looking at the box might not expect the strategic depth…but maybe that’s part of the point.
