Hit party game Exploding Kittens has been trounced in the fight to be the most funded tabletop game on Kickstarter.

New title Kingdom Death: Monster 1.5 has risen through the ranks to steal the title, having secured more than $12m on the crowd funding site.

The game - billed as a cooperative nightmare horror game experience – has cleared the previous record held by Elan Lee’s Exploding Kittens by more than $4m, from a total of 19,264 backers.

‘Kingdom Death Monster is a massive cooperative board game about survival in a nightmare horror world,’ read a statement from the firm.

‘Survivors fight for their lives against an onslaught of bizarre and fearsome creatures. They will use the fruits of these battles to build a fragile civilisation in a place where humans are at the bottom of a monstrous ecology.’

The game is the brainchild of the New York-based board game designer and founder of Kingdom death, Adam Poots.

“Initially, I brought the concept for Monster to Kickstarter in order to make a far away dream in to a reality.

“A game of this size could not feasibly be made without the community of supportive backers we found on Kickstarter.”
