The Ghost Archipelago Nickstarter!

The Frostgrave: Ghost Archipelago Nickstarter has now been running for a week-and-a-half, and already it stands at nearly £30,000. If you've never heard of a 'Nickstarter' before, it is basically a pre-order program where if the total order value passes certain thresholds, everyone gets some freebies. It's not a crowd-funding program. Everything for Ghost Archipelago is now either made, or is in the final stages of being made. This is just a chance to get in at the beginning.

The £30,000 mark is significant because it means everyone who placed an order will get a free metal Drichean Warrior figure to go with the free metal Snake-man that was added when the orders hit £20,000.

If you are planning on getting the book anyway, you should really consider ordering through the Nickstarter. For £20 (the cost of the book) you'll also get 5 treasure tokens, a special Crew Sheet, and the two metal figures mentioned above.

If you are wondering why I have waited so long to mention the Nickstarter, it is because my kids started nursery last week. This has created all kinds of chaos, and they have brought home all kinds of fun new germs. My son got Hand, Foot, and Mouth, which I had never even heard of. Ignorance didn't protect me however, and I spent two days with aching feet and hands. We all seem to be getting better at the moment...


  1. And now my wallet is empty, but I shall have another pile of lead to touch the sky!

  2. Very much looking forward to getting the rules, now back to making pirate ships :-)

  3. What is more interesting about reaching £30 000 is new level that will be revealed. If there is a pattern in metal snakeman as test model for future plastic kit and metal drichean as test for future plastic kit i have a feeling that last spend goal of the nickstarter could be some preview of tribal warriors? Or enigmatic erithereans mentioned in the reviews, that I picture for some reason as cavemen?

  4. The game appears to be perceived in some quarters as a `pirate' game. Each to their own does this cause any problems at all?
