Hand of Fate: Ordeals to bring Aussie video game to tabletop

Posted on May 25, 2017

Hand of Fate: Ordeals, the tabletop adaptation of popular Australian-made indie game Hand of Fate has smashed through its Kickstarter goal in only six hours after it launched on the crowd-sourcing platform on the 23rd of May, according to a developer announcement made on the game’s Steam page.

The board game is a collaboration between Brisbane based Defiant Development  who were responsible for the original game and Gold Coast based Rule and Make who have successfully created  four other tabletop games through Kickstarter.

Ordeals will seek to interpret the source material’s mixture of an RPG-style card game with moments of hack-and-slash action to the tabletop setting as well as incorporating elements of the upcoming Hand of Fate 2 set to release this year. It will also be for 1-4 players, branching out from the “You vs The Dealer” narrative of the original video game.

As of writing, the Kickstarter has raised $101,624  of the $30,000 goal, meaning that every stretch goal has been reached in only three days. You can find the Kickstarter here before it closes on the 22nd of June and if you haven’t played it already, you also receive a key for Hand of Fate when you back the project.

Do you think Hand of Fate can translate into a psychical game without losing any of its charm? Is there another game you’d want to see take on physical form? Let us know below!
