Heroes of Barcadia Coming to Kickstarter

GameStop, Inc.

Heroes of Barcadia, a pun-tastic dungeon exploration board game… with drinks, is coming soon to Kickstarter from Rollacrit

Our friends at Rollacrit, know that drinking pairs better with dungeons than dragons. That’s why they developed Heroes of Barcadia. This new tabletop, pun-tastic, dungeon exploring game, aims to bring dungeons and drinking together in a way we’ve never seen before. Originally inspired by a past April Fool’s day product, the game is real and will soon head to Kickstarter with its full version and Roll20 for the digital edition.

Heroes of Barcadia

In Heroes of Barcadia, 2-6 players become Barcadia champions who battle monsters and bosses, collect Power-Ups, and race to collect the elusive Drink Hoard hidden in the dungeon! The twist of the game, your character’s health is measured by the liquid in your cup. Receiving damage requires players to take a drink, slowly slipping down their health pool until it’s back to square one.

“Designing and play-testing Heroes of Barcadia over the last few years has supplied countless
cheerful evenings around the table with friends, along with many pun brainstorming sessions,”
said Madison O’Neil, Heroes of Barcadia designer and illustrator. “The goal for me was always
to have everybody around the table enjoying themselves, and I think we’ve achieved a game
that is equally as fun to win as it is to lose! I can’t wait to get it into people’s hands.” [via Rollacrit]

The game’s design and prototype are finished and will be on Kickstarter soon. To be notified when the Kickstart goes live, head over to HeroesofBarcadia.com to be notified directly and receive and exclusive Power-Up in your copy of the game when you back it. If you’re like us, love tabletop games, love drinking, you’ll likely love this game.

Be sure to check out Rollacrit.com to see all the great things these former ThinkGeekers have to offer and be sure to stay tuned as we’ll definitely keep you updated with the latest from Rollacrit and Heroes of Barcadia. Continue reading below to read the “How to Play” from Rollacrit.

How to Play
Heroes of Barcadia features a fun and cartoony art style, with dozens of unique monsters like
The Wicked Witch of the Yeast, Hopgoblins, and the fearsome Mimosasaurus. The game mixes
luck of the dice with strategic decisions in a ruleset that’s easy to pick up but still allows for
higher-level play. The dungeon itself is tile based and built by the players at the start of each
game, making each session different for a high level of replayability.

Choose from Barcadian champions like Sir Drankalot the Inebriated, or Intoxica the Necromixer,
taking their character glasses and moving them around the board, revealing dungeon tiles and
fighting monsters in your search for the Drink Hoard. Use devious Loot Cards to ruin your
opponent’s plans, all the while making sure your Health Bar Cup doesn’t run dry. Nice guys
finish last in this fast-paced, ever-changing, pun-tastic party game for fantasy and beverage
connoisseurs alike.

The first player to defeat the Grand Drink Guardian and secure the Drink Hoard is crowned the
true hero of Barcadia and wins the game! In the end, only one hero may claim the treasure, so
it’s a scramble to mess up your opponents’ plans while keeping your own character on the right
path. [via Rollacrit]
