Last Chance Tanto Cuore: Winter Romance Kickstarter

September 13, 2017

Japanime Games and Archlight Games is back with another Kickstarter.  This time with Tanto Cuore: Winter Romance, the maid deck building games adds butlers to the mix this time. The expansion adds to previous versions of Tanto Cuore.  New rules and cards allow you to create couples with maids and butlers to earn more points or you can try to break up other players couples.

Now with the original goal of $20,000 met long ago, not only will you get the game (plus plenty of bonuses items based on your pledge), but there are a whole bunch of stretch goals already met.  Meaning free stuff added to your pledge.  These include a metal pin, alternate are and text cards, and cardboard tokens for use.  There are still three stretch goals to meet for more alternative cards and promos.

Add-ons for this project include card sleeves, sets of Tanto Cuore (comes with free tote bag), extra Winter Romance sets, foils cards, acrylic token set, randomizer deck, deck boxes, playmats (oh so many playmats), calendar, spin-off two player game Doki Doki Beach Volleyball, and artbook,

You have less than one day to get in on this project, cause I procrastinate too much about writing.  With the addition of butlers this expansion feels a bit more welcoming than past sets.  Free shipping in the US.

There is also a buy one get one free offer on playmats going on at the Japanime store through the end of September.
