Hey guys, We're trying to start another campaign of Kingdom Death Monster! Jeremy and I are looking for 2 more masochists who want to throw themselves into the meat grinder! Of course we can try out the rules for a group of 5 or 6 if everybody wants in, but 4 would be ideal.

I likely won't have the minis painted by this Friday, but once summer hits my goal is to finish the whole box plus the Bushido Minis I have on standby.

Actually I found a variant that allows 5 and 6 in a reasonable way, you'd probably want to add a bonus +1 basic resource per hunt per extra player to keep your party reasonably equipped but the variant does a much more reasonable job of letting you take more players without feeling cheaty.

Quote:
The rule variant in the rule book for 5 and 6 player was never much to our liking since it leveled up the already high difficulty of the game even to a higher Level.

I came up to a different solution for the Player who don't like the suggested alternative:

5 Players: Add Lifepoints according to AI Cards (add AI Cards (B&A) and add 25% Lifepoints).

6 Players: same as 5 Players but add 50% Lifepoints according to AI Cards.

For the Showdown only 4 Players activate every Survivor turn. For simplicity I Show you the flow of the rounds:

For 5 Players:
Turn 1: -Monster
-Survivor 1,2,3,4

Turn 2: -Monster
-Survivor 2,3,4,5

Turn 3: -Monster
-Survivor 3,4,5,1

Turn 4: -Monster
-Survivor 4,5,1,2

Turn 5: -Monster
-Survivor 5,1,2,3

Turn 6: cycle back to turn 1

This System is not perfect either. One of the Players will always have a downtime, but as you can see in the flow, every Player has only to sit out every 5th turn. For simplicity sake we kept an fixed order, which is a bit different then the original rule but helps keeping Things in order.

The 6 Player variant went even smoother, since every survivor has just to sit out every third turn.

I tested this variant a few times (5 and 6 Players) and came to very balanced results, which in the end came gaming wise much closer to the 4 Player experience.

Of course the lower resource payback was still a thing, but the Monsters felt much more doable.
