BELLEVUE, WA, February 16th, 2016 – Privateer Press announced the launch of a Kickstarter in support of the company’s new board game, Widower’s Wood, the latest in the expandable Iron Kingdoms Adventure Board Game series, designed by William “Oz” Schoonover and produced by Privateer Press. Widower’s Wood is a cooperative, tile-based adventure game for up to four players and will contain dozens of high-quality miniatures created by the award-winning sculptors of the Privateer Press Studio. Gameplay takes place on a richly designed board with tiles that change from scenario to scenario, all supplemented by hundreds of tokens and cards for tracking the players’ progress.

This is Privateer Press’s first crowd-funded tabletop game. “We have had tremendous success in hobby retail stores with our WARMACHINE and HORDES miniature game lines and will continue to publish and distribute those products the same way we always have. But we have also been making great board games for years, which are not as widely known,” said Privateer’s Director of Business Development William Shick. “We know what a powerful platform Kickstarter is for exposing new products, and we’re excited for this opportunity to not only bring a new game to life but to bring greater awareness to our existing catalog of board games that are already available right now.”

The Widower’s Wood campaign launched on Kickstarter today, February 16th, 2016, and will run until March 19th, 2016. Backers will be able to choose from a variety of ways to support the project, and numerous exciting rewards and stretch goals are part of the Kickstarter campaign.

Privateer expects Widower’s Wood to be delivered to backers in early 2017. Retail availability will be determined based on future demand following the close of the Kickstarter campaign.
