Hi everyone, Modiphius has some amazing news today - we have just announced that we'll be working with the amazing team at Fantasy Flight Games on the Mutant Chronicles - Siege of the Citadel boardgame! They will be co-publishing the retail version of the game in to their enormous distribution network and also working on translations (though not for the Kickstarter). We have reached over $327,000 on Kickstarter and it's now our most successful boardgame project! It's a major milestone for our little family business and we wanted to thank you all for helping us get here. 

With 3 expansions and 7 factions unlocked the game is playable for up 7 people. I've included the full contents of the Dark Legion Pledge below which gets you 102 minis (check out the sculpts here) and $409 value for just $149 and rising but first here's the full press release we're sharing:

In a joint statement issued by Fredrik Malmberg, president and CEO of Cabinet Entertainment and Chris Birch, publishing director of Modiphius Entertainment, "FFG's global reach is unsurpassed in the hobby game industry and their expertise allows us the opportunity to focus on the game's design and development. We're thrilled to be working with them to bring Mutant Chronicles: Siege of the Citadel to friendly local game shops everywhere."
Mutant Chronicles: Siege of the Citadel has currently raised more than $325,000 in a highly successful Kickstarter campaign with more than 2500 backers and two days to go. The retail version of Siege of the Citadel will be released worldwide after the delivery of the Kickstarter rewards, which are due to be shipped Q4 2017.
Siege of the Citadel, originally designed by Richard Borg and published by Target Games and Pressman Toys in the 1990s, was one of the first games of its kind to offer character development and the unique rotating Dark Legion player, among other groundbreaking ideas. Conceived by Sweden's gaming powerhouse Target Games,Siege of the Citadel was advertised on television in the US and hundreds of gamers still own much loved copies across the world. This new edition reboots the classic game with balanced and updated rules, 45 new sculpted minis, new double-sided tiles, new creatures, and an A-List design team of Richard Borg, Eric M. Lang and Kevin Wilson.

Here's the contents of the Dark Legion Pledge for $149 which gets you 102 minis and $409 worth of unlocks so far.
