It only took 3 minutes and 15 seconds for ISS Vanguard to reach its fundraising goal which was set at $ 50,000 on Gamefound. The new Polish production of Awaken Realms has generated great enthusiasm among gamers and board game enthusiasts by raising more than $ 4.5 million through its fundraising campaign on Gamefound.

In total, more than 27,000 buyers showed up to pre-order the studio's new game, which had already managed to generate popular enthusiasm with its previous productions. Tainted Grail had thus broken the record for pre-orders for a board game on the platform with more than 4.9 million euros collected.

The conquest of space from your gaming table

ISS Vanguard is presented as a four-player cooperative board game in which players must manage a ship, land on planets, explore them, and take on terrifying creatures. During the management phases, players will have to recruit new team members, produce new equipment, deliver modules, or even launch research. Each decision will directly impact the game, with a possible game over.

The basic box is priced at $ 99. With its three extensions, the bill climbs to… 249 dollars all the same.

If the numbers are very impressive, Frosthaven currently holds the fundraising record for a board game, with nearly $ 13 million raised and more than 83,000 orders.
