The first time the Darkest Night Kickstarter came around, I eagerly backed it only to be cruelly disappointed a day later. Victory Point Games had canceled the campaign and promised a relaunch the following week. I admit I was skeptical—the whole thing seemed like one big trainwreck.
I am happy to say, however, that it looks like I was wrong. The Darkest Night campaign relaunched on May 12, this time asking for only $90,000 (originally the amount had been $120,000) and accompanied by stretch goals that actually add new cards and mechanics to the game. Full funding has already been reached, and the campaign is moving along nicely towards its first stretch goal. By next March or so, I should have something that I really wanted: a copy of Darkest Night with all of the original expansions, all in one big box. On top of that, there will be two new expansions. Plus, I went for a sweet set of miniatures. I am once again feeling excited about Darkest Night! There will be a lot of gaming to do in the not-too-distant future.
