A Kickstarter project we featured way back in GARPA 37 finally gets into Brant’s grubby little mitts.

GameLynn was looking for $15k to get Tiny Epic Kingdoms printed, and figured they’d drop on over at Kickstarter and see what they could raise.  Well, they raked in almost $287,000.  Yes, you read that right.  They pulled in almost 20 times what they were looking for.  The end result is a pretty well-stocked box that landed at Casa del Brant yesterday.

There are enough meeples for 5 players, in some darker colors. No mamby-pamby yellow meeples here! No foliage-green, either, though.

Resources are wooden tokens instead of cardboard counters - a Kickstarter stretch goal upgrade
