Kickstarter Spotlight |Patriots & Redcoats

I am not going to lie, I chose to check this Kickstarter out for the art. Chris Collingwood is a professional artist that has put his time focusing on historical and military art. A lot of games seem to go for a hyper-realistic feel these days, if you want to go that direction, I say dive deep. Green Feet Games did exactly that by pulling this artist in to focus on the American Revolution.

The game itself looks pretty easy to grasp and play, a mix of Coup and the mafia game we played growing up. The one where everyone puts their head down while the mafia eliminates innocent townspeople - while a blundering detective inevitably fumbles through a contrived story from an evil narrator. I always enjoyed being the narrator in that game.

The game calls for 4-10 people to play, which can definitely be a stretch to find. That being said, a 15-25 minute gameplay time should entice people who may still say that they "don't like board games"- they are probably talking about the horrific nights of family Monopoly that would take hours from their night that ended in a fight.
