Dreamwars Board Game - Kickstarter Unboxing (Part One)

I'm a big fan of Steampunk, Horror and interesting board games so when this particular Kickstarter caught my eye I decided to give it a try.

First some background...
Dreamwars is a new board game set in a breathtaking, brand new steampunk horror setting where every choice has a consequence. The game is cooperative and playable by 1 to 8 players, while the setting is characterized by its own sense of style, refined and unique: a rich setting, horrible creatures and an articulate story fabricated to build up a thrilling world where the players can immerse themselves completely. Mysterious and terrifying beings await in the dark recesses of a strange, ever-changing world, while their contorted and inhuman masters plan on the fall of the free peoples. What are you going to do when the last Cantico will be sang, the last sword will be broken and the last bullet will be shot?

cooperative game for 1 to 8 players featuring 70 playable scenarios,
enough content for more than 500 hours of play 
new gaming mechanics easy to learn
 modular scenarios that you can suspend between chapters and resume when you want 
9 branched Ordeals whose endings will reflect what happened during the game 
great gaming variety thanks to our Adventure decks and Events decks
8 high-quality miniatures of the playable Heroes

Dreamwars - The Box
In a surprising move they've cunningly put their board game in a box...

Dreamwars - Instructions
The game comes with a rules pamphlet covering the basic rules and an ordeals book (basically a mission book). There's not a great deal of art in the book but it is very well presented overall.
Here are some sample pages from both books...

Dreamwars - Game Board
The game is played on a large fold-out board of good quality construction.

Dreamwars - Game Accessories
The game comes with a large selection of card-stock tokens, cards for in game events, cards for the players and other important characters and of course some dice.
Here are pictures of both sides of the card tokens...
...and the character cards...
...there are also a large number of cards for various in game effects...
 ...and some dice of course...

Dreamwars - Miniatures
There is a miniature for each of the playable characters that matches their artwork on the stat card.

Thoughts and comments are (as usual) most welcome.
Should you ever choose to purchase something based on one of my features or reviews then it would be nice if you could let the company know where the inspiration came from...who knows...they might be grateful to the poor unappreciated blogger who sent you their way...if however I've put you off a can keep that info to yourself...
