A company who called itself White Helm Games had its Kickstarter campaign for a board game called Dungeon Hoard has now been cancelled because the tabletop game was already created by someone else.
The Kickstarter raised $388 of its $5500 goal from 21 backers but some potential backers noticed that Dungeon Hoard already existed. The game was already created by the actual company called White Helm Games, and it's definitely not the same company running the Kickstarter.
It turns out that it was just an imposter stealing the game and pretending to be the company, and those who noticed quickly expressed their complaints in the Kickstarter, and the "creator" even replied to them.

People figured out that the campaign is just someone else's game with bits of other people's KS campaigns pasted in and the creator is taking it well pic.twitter.com/gVm8bARrAb— It's Ettin (@Ettin64) October 16, 2019
