Kickstarter Tabletop Alert: ‘Terminus Breach TD’ Is Back, Better Than Ever

The Empire of Arcadium is under threat — armies of Drakka approach through the Terminus Valley. The humans, elves, and dwarves have been recruited by the emperor to defend Arcadium, building towers that will fire upon the Drakka and petitioning the emperor for favors that may help turn the tide of war.

What Is Terminus Breach TD?

Terminus Breach TD is a semi-cooperative tower defense board game for 1 to 4 players, ages 13 and up, and takes 1 to 3 hours to play. It’s currently seeking funding on Kickstarter, with a pledge level of $49 (plus shipping) for a copy of the game (or higher pledge levels if you want to collaborate with designer Matt Lloyd to create a character for the game). The game’s rules should be easy enough for kids perhaps as young as 10, as long as they have the patience for a longer game.

Terminus Breach TD did not reach its funding goal in its first Kickstarter attempt in March this year, but Lloyd has continued to develop the game, adding a fourth player and Drakka bosses. This review is taken from my original Kickstarter alert, modified to reflect new gameplay and components.
