WizKids Announces Maiden’s Quest

What’s a gal gotta do to get rescued around here? The “Damsel in Distress” is a trope as old as writing.

Bitcon Cards: Lose All Your Money Card Game Up On Kickstarter

Honestly, all I know about it I learned from John Oliver. So I’m not really one to try and discuss it. However, after playing Bitcon Cards: Lose All Your Money, we all might just be experts in how they work. The game is a new card game up on Kickstarter now. Originally created as a joke, it eventually evolved to be a somewhat accurate simulation of how these transactions actually take place.

Million Dollars, But… The Game Coming From Cryptozoic and Rooster Teeth

If I had a million dollars we wouldn’t have to walk to the store.
If I had a million dollars we’d take a limousine ’cause it costs more.
If I had a million dollars we wouldn’t have to eat Kraft dinner.
Though saying what you’d do if you had a million dollars is jumping the gun. First, you’ve gotta get the million dollars. And that’s not so easy. What’ve you got to do? That’s up to the other players in Million Dollars, But… The Game. Cryptozoic has teamed up with Rooster Teeth to give this originally-Kickstarter-funded game a much wider release.

Rainbow Massacre Card Game Up On Kickstarter

They’ve picked up whatever weaponry they can find and are going on the warpath. Those multi-hued, single-horned horses haven’t got a chance when the Zebras come fighting. That’s the story behind Rainbow Massacre, a new card game that’s up on Kickstarter now.

Royal Cup Card Game Coming to Kickstarter

Gamers seem to come in 2 forms, in my experience. There’s the super-outgoing ones that will sit down with anyone and everyone for a game. Then, there’s the more shy-type, who loves to game just as much as anyone else, but isn’t always the best when it comes to first interactions with people. That’s where Royal Cup will come in, it’s a new game headed to Kickstarter that is specifically designed to break the ice.

Fix the World Card Game Up On Kickstarter

Without going into political territory or getting too detailed: there’s a lot of things in this world that aren’t the greatest. Certainly, there’s various problems that need to be solved.

The scent of trees. You know, that kind of thing. Forsaken Forest is a new social deduction card game up on Kickstarter where players are a group of travelers going through a forest. Some have been corrupted. Some are still pure. The object is for your side to overtake the other, without being 100% sure who is who.
