Anyone know about this Kickstarter project?

Hoplomachus is a Gladiatorial Combat board game set during the Roman Empire. This game uses an incredible set of game mechanics that, when put together, make an extremely fun and unique turn-based strategy game. Chips are drawn out of a bag to be used directly on the game board. These units (chips) are controlled by you as you compete for control of the arena. The basics of this game can be learned quickly, but it will take much more than that to master it. Hoplomachus challenges you to plan, risk, and adapt each turn. We want players to pick their own Champion and develop their own play style that best suits them.

Hoplomachus can be played solo, co-op, head-to-head, or even as an interesting 4 player game (3 players and 1 controlling beasts). Soon, we will be introducing our first expansion: a 4th city, which will allow for full 4-player games. We promise the 2 player game alone is worth it! Each game takes about 45-60 minutes.

Yeah, that's the reality with a lot of Kickstarters.

Well, they made their goal.

Actually, it looks like there's a download link for the rulebook on their Kickstarter page now.
