Eternal Dynasty

Hello there, all you gaming friends out there in gamer-land! Seems for the moment that it's actually going to be a bit winter-like here in Atlanta. At least for a couple days. No, it's not like the winters I remember in Chicago, but if we had a winter like that down here, this place would never dig out of that. The whole state would shut down until June. It would be a nightmare.

However, a blizzard's-worth of reviews here today is just fine. (Because transitions!)

Today we've got articles on: X-Wing Miniatures Game, Star Wars Armada, Imperial Assault, Conflict of Heroes - The Eastern Front Solo Expansion, Queen's Necklace, Terrakami Games Sci-Fi Containers, Crusader A15 by Rubicon Models, Bountytown, Between Two Cities, Bad Beets, Ultimate Warriorz, Jamaica, The Gallerist, Mombasa, Ninja Camp, Shakespeare, Cthulhu Realms, Eternal Dynasty, Outer Earth, Fool's Gold, and Dark Age Z.

Zucchini People Games has made it over their first stretch goal for their Eternal Dynasty board game. They're adding goodies to the mix for other goals they pass as well.


From the update:

Thanks to backer Kareem for kicking us into Stretch Goal territory!

That means injection-molded Structures for everyone, hooray!

People also really seem to love the concept of new Rulers, especially if we can concurrently chase 400 Backers to get 5 Rulers from Water Margin and another 5 Rulers from Dream of the Red Chamber. New Rulers also came in second on the Stretch Goal survey, so, sorry again, larger board Stretch Goal! Maybe next time!

Here's our updated chart:

Zucchini People Games have collected the poll results and so have rearranged their stretch goals in accordance with the will of their backers.


From the update:

Happy Chinese New Year! It's the Year of the Horse!

I collected a lot of worthwhile information from the survey! While it wasn't an overwhelming favorite (37.50% vs. 33%), the Stretch Goal for the injection mold Structures did come in first and will be the initial Stretch Goal. The amounts between goals have not changed, but our first Stretch Goal is now the improved Structure components at $25.5k and the larger board is now the $27k Stretch Goal. There was also interest in adding more 3 Kingdoms Rulers (and 1 intriguing vote for Sun Wukong), so we'll look at adding in new Rulers for the next Campaign Achievement after we hit 300 backers.

Zucchini People Games launched a Kickstarter campaign for Eternal Dynasty, their board game of generational territory control.


From the campaign:

Eternal Dynasty is designed for 3-5 players and generally takes 60-150 minutes to complete (20-30 minutes per player). Each game will run for a number of Generations (Rounds of Play) equal to the number of players. At the beginning of each Generation, players will select a Ruler who will have different inherent bonuses for Military or Political Influence, a specific number of cards to play for their Generation, and a unique Ability. Players take on the role of feuding clans and will fight over control of the 18 provinces of ancient China. As the Generations progress, players will be able to adjust their strategies on the fly or continue reinforcing their current strategies as they change to a new Ruler.
