Celebrate the World of Fire and Ice by Entering It Yourself! Roleplaying Combat Board Game Debuts on Kickstarter!

Fire and Ice Miniatures Adventure Game

Dynamite Entertainment has announced a collaboration with two historic artistic families, as the world of Fire and Ice makes its way to the tabletop with a board game giving fans the chance to roleplay and have fun in its wondrous world. Gamers are able to support and reserve their copy of the game right now on Kickstarter, with exclusive add-ons and early bird extras!

Fire and Ice released in theaters 40 years ago as the legendary team-up between animation innovator Ralph Bakshi and the “Godfather” of fantasy artwork Frank Frazetta. Additionally, the screenplay was written by Roy Thomas and Gerry Conway. Dynamite has brought back this exciting world and mysterious characters for a new comic series, and the celebration continues in this new game.

Fire and Ice Miniatures Adventure Game Kickstarter Exclusive

The world of Fire and Ice exists in a precarious state between its many tribes and clans, but it all ratchets up when Lord Nekron decides to destroy the kingdom of fire. His black magic has created an unstoppable glacier that demolishes everything in its path, forcing relocation for many under King Jarol’s rule. The war drums are building, and it will take three unique heroes in Princess Teegra, Larn the Warrior, and the mysterious Darkwolf to turn the tide.

The Fire and Ice game features a “tactical skirmish” design and can be enjoyed by two or more players. The heroes of Firekeep battle the diabolical forces of Icepeak, as they navigate across multiple maps. Through usage of cards, dice, and the intricately designed figures at the forefront, players can recreate the iconic combat from the rotoscoping animated classic. The game’s systems also open up with “Rules-Lite” mechanics giving experimental players the chance to continue their adventure or make their own narratives through roleplay.

The core game includes a set of 12 miniatures, including amazing sculpts of the central fan favorite characters of Darkwolf, Teegra, and Larn. But it doesn’t stop there! Fans who back the game itself in the campaign in the first few days will additionally receive an exclusive figure of the Subhuman Priestess. And through the support of fans, Dynamite alongside the Frazetta and Bakshi families hope to unlock 12 more miniatures by climbing through stretch goals, including the vile Lord Nekron himself. Players could be getting as many as 25 incredible figures, plus other additions!

Fire and Ice Miniatures Adventure Game

In addition to the dozen figures, the core box is huge and includes a handy extensive rulebook, six character cards, 54 event cards, 12 activity cards, six 10-sided dice with fire and ice designs, over 200 token markers, and the four region game boards.

Backers on Kickstarter can check out several additional fun extras to get alongside their game. A limited edition set of nine trading cards features some of the biggest names in artwork from Dynamite’s revival of the franchise, including Bill Sienkiewicz, Leonardo Manco, Joseph Michael Linsner, and of course Frank Frazetta himself. The stunning Sienkiewicz piece is also available as a high-quality lithograph, with a signed option. Premium metal cover and CGC graded editions of the new comic title’s first issue are also available.

Risk it all with the flip of a card! The Monopoly Chance game is the high-stakes, card-flipping version of the Monopoly game—and it only takes about 20 minutes to play! Instead of moving a token around the board, each player receives a token deck with Cash cards, Bankrupt cards, and strategic cards that lend an edge. Roll the die and flip over up to that many cards. Play it safe and flip over just enough cards to “cash out”—or risk it all for the big bucks. But watch out! One too many flipped cards could reveal a Bankrupt card! Players compete to buy properties around the board by putting Cash cards on property spaces—and sometimes over other players’ Cash. But only those with the top card at the end of the round will own that property and get to add one of its buildings to their skyline. At the end of the game, the player with the longest skyline wins! Liven up Family Game Night with this edge-of-your-seat party game for adults and kids. Available now on Amazon, Walmart, Target and other major retailers.
