Meeple Nation Board Game Podcast

Kingsport Festival is steeped in art and lore from the Cthulhu Mythos. In the game you summon one or more of the Outer Gods or their minions in order to increase in Evil, Death or Destruction. The game is similar to Kingsburg but offers unique play.

The game is for 2-5 players in about 60-75 minutes. Ages 13 and up.
