Witchin’ Hour has been successfully funded on 2 March, 2020 on Kickstarter. It was 270% funded and unlocked several stretch goals.
Once all pledges have been delivered (estimated September 2020) the game will be available in limited quantity from this website.
Noble Knight will stock the rulebook for the USA.
Witchin’ Hour is a 2-player tabletop skirmish game that pits Witch Hunters and their retinues of righteous men against foul Witches and their henchmen.
Armed with swords and unshakable faith you will hunt and fight the loathsome Witches that roam the land and prey on the weak and innocent. Or hurl deadly spells and order numerous dedicated cultists into the fray to get rid of those meddlesome soldiers.
Choose a side and determine the faith of the innocent populace of the land.
The rules presented in the rulebook give players the tools to form a warband or coven of their own liking and equip them with the weapons, spells and skills they want.
There are no restrictions to setting or time period.
The game has a new way of deploying your forces, making this phase less static and gives players the opportunity to outwit their opponent from the start. During the activation phase models can respond to actions of the active player by using tokens. Spend your tokens wisely and thwart your opponent’s plans. Close combat is straightforward and you can try to outbluff your opponent when choosing how many dice you will roll for the attack or defence. A single roll of the dice determines the outcome of a close combat. So there is no need to roll separately for to hit, wounds and saves.
Witchin’ Hour is our first fully developed game that we want to publish through Kickstarter. It wil launch on Feb. 1st, 2020.
The main focus is to publish the hard copy rulebook. This will be a softcover book with 64 full color pages, crammed with rules, warband creation, narrative scenario’s and a campaign system.
