Hey everyone! Welcome to yet another installment of Kickstarter Weekly!

Let’s get started –

pack of heroesPack of Heroes – Adventureland Games

Set in an alternate vintage comic book universe (that totally doesn’t exist) Pack of Heroes is a 2-player head-to-head card game battle. Using your heroes and their abilities the goal is basic: Defeat your opponent! If nothing else this game looks super stylized and has awesome fake retro art! $20 gets you a copy of the game and all unlocked stretch goals. They’ve already funded so every backer will push them onward toward those stretch goals. Plus there are some sweet add-ons including T-shirts and action figures! You can find the campaign here.
