Introduce yourself!

By [Dewit] - ANKAMA - February 22, 2018, 18:55:52
AnkaTracker

Who are you? What do you do? Come and tell us a bit about yourself, so that we can know each other better! 

Alright, I'll start: I'm [Dewit]! 
I've been working with Ankama for several years now, as a Community Manager for several projects. I've been part of the Ankama Boardgames team before it even had this name! I've seen Monster Slaughter grow and develop in several different versions, before it became the complete game you know today. 

As far as table top games go, I like strategy and placement games, the kind that gives a "good" headache. Or, at the opposite side of the spectrum, quick appetizer games to play with friends! I've also got a passive of playing a lot of figurines and roleplaying games. 

In Monster Slaughter, the Clowns are my favorite family, followed closely by the Serial-Killers. And my two favorite mystery guests have all the best toys: the ghost hunter and the black-suited agent! 


Your turn now! wink

First Ankama intervention

Hi all! 

This is Geoffrey, your community manager/Kickstarter coordinator. 

Thanks for taking the time to introduce yourselves, it's always nice to get to know our players! 

And from what I can see, I already know some of you! Ron, will you be at GenCon '18?
I will be there just like last year, promoting our next Kickstarter campaign smile

Howdy,
I'm Ron aka Bubba Ho-Tep, I love games of all kinds and first tried Monster Slaughter at Gen Con last year.  I was sold as soon as I saw the miniatures and played the game.

I have a gaming group called the Kentucky Fried Gamers, that have run games and events at Gen Con and other cons since 2004.  We ran free games at two locations the Wednesday before Gen Con every year thru 2017.  We passed the torch to a new group this year, all of whom are current members of the KFG, called the Re-Fried Gamers.  They will now run the games and we can sit back and play them.

I have two sons, a daughter and a beautiful wife and we all play games! I can't wait to sit down and play Monster Slaughter together as a family!  We play D&D, Warmachine, Board Games, Card games, you name it, we probably play it.

My favs have to be the Swamp/Lagoon family as I am a huge Creature from the Black Lagoon fan and the Mummy family,

Hi I'm Kit
I've been looking for a board game to truly enjoy since Monsterpocalypse stopped being made and have high hopes for Monster slaughter as i want to get my Cabin in the woods vibe on.out monsters 

I am an author and write books and screenplays about monsters throughout history.
I am also an artist and actor (all pretty much monster related, so i'm living the dream)

Welcome, welcome, welcome. Long time fan from Poland. By long time I mean since 2004 when Dofus started biggrin
Tom is my name but you can call me Pooh. Just like the one with honey overdose biggrin

Anyway as I said I'm with Ankama since Dofus with almost every single game (unfortunately the CCG was French only and that was some barrier I couldn't pass) and animation. Why you ask? I love their art style. And those games were actually good and fun =)

OK that's all for now. Cannot wait when real slaughter will begin! biggrin

Greetings,  from South Carolina.  Just really getting back into boardgames again after retiring from the US AIr Force.  Pretty much enjoy just about any type of board game, and Monster Slaughter really caught my eye when I saw the Kickstarter.  Looking forward to a chance to play.

Hi, Nick here from the UK.  Saw this game and it just looks amazing, but had missed the KS, lucky there was the late backer option.
Enjoy many different board games and miniature games, looking forward to playing this game with my kids.

Good morning, I'm Martinazzi, I'm from Brazil. I've followed the work of Ankama for many years, from the time the Dofus was in Flash! And I'm really happy beyond digital games, creating and launching various board games. But this is a masterpiece!

Greetings from Virginia. My name is Daniel. Monster Slaughter is my second backed game on Kickstarter. I've been heavily into board games since 2010 and now, with the help of my new fiance, our board game collection is growing. We are excited about Monster Slaughter because it is so unique and unlike anything we've seen before.

Howdy,
My name's Adam aka "The Mad Rabbi, King of The Undead." 
First time Ankama backer, long time KS backer with 17 backed games and 2 late-pledged games. Besides board games, I also love console games, especially Destiny. Monster Slaughter interested me, along with Village Attacks , where the players are the monsters fighting against humanity. I love the idea of monster families taking on humans, but some of them have the ability to attack your monster families

Hey hey! Will, from Virginia. My buddy and I set up a gaming group called Defend the Table last year, so we're still getting it off the ground (especially difficult now that he's moved back to Ohio.) We played Monster Slaughter at GenCon 50 and were both immediately on board. We gave it a brief review during our GenCon coverage, and this is the only board game I've backed with zero hesitation after the demo! We can't wait to check out the progress, as well as your next project, at GenCon 2018, this time with a bit larger group joining us.

I'm getting into demoing games (mostly miniatures games like Guild Ball and Fallout: Wasteland Warfare) in the Hampton Roads area, and am looking forward to including Monster Slaughter in the rotation.

TheMadRabbi: I should've backed Village Attacks, it loogks great!

Lebogue: Good to hear! Come say hi when you get there smile We'll be in the entrepeneur's avenue. I'm actually looking for people to help me run demos, feel free to contact me if you know the right person for the job!

Hello All,

     My parents decided to call me Chris, but you can find Phlexian/Iceis/Tonpayxixius floating around many an online game new and old. Currently I am in British Columbia, Canada.
    
I have been a huge board game player for as long as I can remember. I have played every game I could get my hands on.

    I am beyond excited for Monster Slaughter and have begun counting the day's to its arrival. It has been a long time since I have enjoyed a miniatures game like this (think HeroQuest  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HeroQuest ).

     I have not painted a miniature in long enough that I suspect things have probably changed and I have no painting gear at all. Could I get some insight from the community regarding Paints/Brushes and any other little things that you would consider handy for painting or simply would never paint minis with out?

Hello,
my name is Andreas and I'm a miniatureholic wink from Germany.
I backed Monster Slaughter for two reasons. Great sculpted miniatures and a great gameplay that I haven't seen before. Hope to play the game in the next days and to get some colour on these minis.

Jez, boardgames fan from the UK.

Got in on the Kickstarter as this game ticked so many boxes for me. Arrived last week and am just starting to paint it up.

Own both Krosmaster and Frigost boardgames, multiple figures. plus the Krosmaster series on Blu-Ray from the KS, so we're pretty much Ankama fans in this household.
Great job on the MS Kickstarter folks!
