Ah! Ho! Ha-ha! Guard! Turn! Parry! Dodge! Spin! Ha! Thrust!
Ok, so Robin Hood and the Merry Men doesn’t take place in the Warner Brothers universe, but whenever I think of ol’ Robin, I think of Daffy. And we’ve got Robin Hood up on Kickstarter with Final Frontier Games’ Robin Hood and the Merry Men board game. It blends together set collection, worker placement, some dice rolling, and more to give you a semi-cooperative game.
Who wouldn’t want to be nobility? You get titles and land and prestige and the tabloids following you around all over everywhere. Ok, so maybe that last bit isn’t so great, but the other parts are pretty cool. In Rise to Nobility, you’re looking to stop being just the head of an influential family and break into being actual nobility. You’ll do this by wisely using your resources around town. After 10 rounds, the player with the most victory points will become the head of the Stone Council. The Kickstarter campaign for the game is running now.
We’ve made it, everyone. It’s Friday (be sure to get your free item from Kroger). With any luck, your weekend will be filled with all things gaming. I’m… gonna take it a bit easy. It’s pollen season here in GA, and while I’m not particularly allergic to any of it, it’s like getting a face-full of dust or chalk. You cough, you sneeze, your eyes water just because of the amount of particulate in the air. So it’s best to just stay inside and fill up on bite-size gaming stories.
Today on the platter we have: Figure Storage Inserts for Vehicles Available From Sally 4th, Rise to Nobility launches on Kickstarter on April 5th, Go Fish Fitness Kickstarter – Final Week, Bits of War 3rd Anniversary Sale, Purgatory edges closer to completion with new arrivals of models, and April 1st Deals from Advanced Deployment.
My first job was in fast food. I worked at a Fazoli’s in St. Louis. For those that don’t know, Fazoli’s is (“was?” Do they still exist somewhere? They don’t have them here in Atlanta that I know of) a fast-food Italian place. It was a fairly thankless job. But it certainly gave me an appreciation for those that do still work in such an environment. Thankfully, playing Cavern Tavern is much more fun and exciting than actually working at a tavern. It’s up on Kickstarter now and looking for funding love.
Well, we’re making our way through the week. Two and a half days down. Two and a half days to go. Then we get to the glorious, glorious weekend. Do you have things planned coming up? I’ve got a bunch of things from Adepticon that got sorted through last weekend. This weekend it’s time to get things started on writing articles for them. So expect those in the next couple weeks.
To help keep our strength, let’s fill up on some bite-sized gaming stories.
