Briefest Write-Ups in history!!

Hello all! It has been a hectic and fun summer and well… I just HAVE to get a ton of new stuff onto the site… and so… the next 8-10 write ups will be my shortest ever. 😅 Sorry for the lack of poetic ramblings and video links and such!

It’s just that SO many backlogged campaigns fulfilled in an incredibly short time… and well… like I said… summer of fun!! 😬😂🎉

Bundle details

This Upstart bundle includes the Deluxe Kickstarter Edition of Monsters on Board as well as the Plastic Fearmobiles that carry the dice around the game… these plastic cars are SOOOO sweet! Ahem. 🥰 And for good measure I am tossing in the stand-alone, card game… Spook Manor!  A fast and fun ghostly adventure for 1 – 6 players!

Anyway, this is, as always, precisely what backers of the original Kickstarter campaign received with any and all stretch goals included. Any add-ons or other goodies that aren’t mentioned here are not included with this one. Of course, I don’t think there was all that much else… hehe… but in any event, if there was… I didn’t snag it – sorry!

…just so there’s no confusion. 😉❤️

As always, please reach out with any questions!! I’m almost always available unless I’m driving or asleep! 😂😅🚗💤

Kickstarter Campaign Link – to check and see all the juicy exclusives!

I do want to at least post a link to the original Kickstarter campaign… in case you haven’t heard of this one somehow. 😉 The link can be found HERE.

Description

Monsters on Board Deluxe is here!!! And along with it… the Plastic Fearmobiles as well as the standalone game, Spook Manor! Yessssssss please! 😊🎉

It’s close to midnight…one week before the Blue Moon Monster Mixer at Spook Manor. To throw a proper monster mash, you only need one thing—Spook Juice—and you’re gonna need an awful lot of it for these party animals. Spook Juice is a powerful spirit distilled from human fear, and the main ingredient in every popular monster drink. The bad news is that you’re completely out of it. The good news is that the nearby town, Startleton, is a great place to scare some up.

You need to send your Monster disciples to scare up some of that sweet Spook Juice. So dust off your Fearmobiles and get your scariest Monsters on Board!

Monsters on Board is a dice-drafting game that takes place over six rounds. Each round, players will draft Monster Lords (dice) arriving from out of town in Fearmobiles, trying to fulfill their Prophecy cards.

After each player drafts four Monsters, they will send them to the Order of Spider Jack. Monsters sent here will give players actions, as well as Spook Juice when Spider Jack is summoned. The higher the die’s number, the scarier the Monster, which means the more Spook Juice they will scare up for you. However, scarier Monsters have fewer and less powerful actions, while less frightening Monsters have more powerful actions (they try harder)— so choose wisely!

Drafted Monsters also move their matching colored Grunt (Monster miniature) through the Town of Startleton, scaring the townspeople with the help of their little Minions (miniatures). In doing so, Grunts will award players bonus actions. If the Grunts terrorize the town well enough, they will grant bonus Spook Juice during final scoring.

Additionally, players will draft Arch Monsters and Ghosts that will help them achieve their goals.

During final scoring, players will gain additional Spook Juice based on how well they completed their Prophecy cards, scared the Town, and appeased the Arch Monsters. The player with the most Spook Juice wins!

And here’s a little bit about Spook Manor! 😁👻

It’s been fifty years since Startleton was terrorized by monsters in motor carriages. They were never to be seen or heard of again, and so with time the monsters become nothing but a part of old folks tales and scary campfire stories.

Since then, Spook Manor has sat empty and fallen into disrepair. Recently, a local group of children decided to prove that “there are no such things as monsters ”and so they gathered up the courage to go on an adventure and explore the manor.

You overheard that a group of brave kids are planning to stay the night here soon—this is the perfect opportunity to restore Spook Manor to its former terrifying glory and show them just how wrong they are!

Over the course of the game, you will draft and place twenty Room cards in an effort to restore Spook Manor. Different kids have different fears, and scaring them properly will award more points. In addition to rebuilding the manor and scaring the kids, you’ll also want to invite lots of monsters! Spook Manor was once famous among monsters as a party house. Monsters are terrifying, sure, but they also need something to do, so make sure you’ve got plenty of entertainment lined up for them to get down to. The player who has the best plan (most VP) to restore Spook Manor at the end of the game, wins!
