Kickstarter


This week is just rolling on by, isn't it? At least, for me it is. Hard to believe that it's already Thursday and that the end of the week is just ahead. Let's keep this speed-train to the weekend going! Seeing as it is Thursday, that means we need to make sure your gaming tables look good.

Today in the Terrain Corner we have: HandyMaps Buildings and Structures Up On Kickstarter, Archon Studios Running Rampart Terrain Kickstarter, SnapTiles Magnetic Terrain Up On Kickstarter, Dungeon Pegs Dwarven Ruins Terrain Up On Kickstarter, and Modern City 3D Printed Gaming Terrain Up On Kickstarter.

Europe. WWII. Germany has taken over most of the continent. Now, it's set its eyes on the British isles. The Luftwaffe has been ordered to perform regular air raids all across the country. Standing in its way are the pilots of the British fighter squadrons, including the 303. It's tense. It's do-or-die. It's a few versus the many. And it's where you find yourself in 303 Squadron, a new cooperative board game that's up on Kickstarter now.

Mind powers, Swede. Mind powers.

As Ministry told us, a mind is a terrible thing to taste, but we're taking a big ol' bite out of it with The Seer, a new psionic class for 5th Edition that's up on Kickstarter now. This new class is much more than simply "I cast all the same spells a regular caster does, but I do it by thinking hard about it," and looks to make the character class much more unique in its execution.

A Christmas Carol. Charles Dickens' classic tale of Ebeneezer Scrooge and his return to loving all things Christmas with help from the ghosts of Christmast Past, Present, and Future. It's a story that many of us know by heart. But now, you'll be able to experience it on a whole new level with the A Christmas Carol Adventure, a 5th edition RPG adventure and miniatures that's up on Kickstarter now.

Already made it to Wednesday, have we? That's pretty sweet, if you ask me, especially since I'm looking forward to game on Saturday. But there's still plenty to get done this week and we need to keep feuled up. Let's nosh on some bite-sized gaming stories to keep our energy levels high.

Today on the platter we have: Women of WWII: British Home Front Miniatures Up On Kickstarter, Puppets War Free Counter Give-Away With Purchase, and Talis Evolvere: Kanji Dice Up On Kicktarter.

This time of year, GMs might want to do something extra special with their gaming sessions to add in a bit of extra holiday cheer. Well, if you're one such GM, you might want to check out 'TWAS - The Roleplaying Game Before Christmas. It's holiday. It's fright. It's adventure. It's got it all and it's up on Kickstarter now.

Discuss

Car Wars. I remember playing it way back in the day, long ago at The Fantasy Shop St. Charles. It was a game that was always all about making the craziest vehicles you could... and then ramming them headling into one-another. Well, the game is back, with a new 6th edition that's up on Kickstarter now.

If there's one thing that players want with their RPGs, it's options. More options. Players want more ways to make their characters. GMs want more ways to build their worlds (or alternate worlds to play around in). It's a little bit of everything. That's where books like the Arclands Player's Guide come in. It's a resource for both players and GMs that includes information about the world of Hermia, as well as new races, classes, and other options for players. The book is up on Kickstarter now.

Discuss

The city is going through a massive building boom. Real estate magnates and contractors are coming together and construction is happening like never before. But who will get the best locations and who will be left with the bad neighborhoods? That's up to you to decide in Magnate: The First City, a new board game that's up on Kickstarter now.

Discuss

Anyone in law enforcement will tell you that time is of the essence when trying to solve a crime. Every minute that goes by, the culprit can be getting further away. In 5-Minute Mystery, every second will count, as players must work together in only 5 minutes to solve the crime. Can you collect the clues and correctly interpret them to catch the ne'er-do-well? The game is up on Kickstarter now.

Discuss

Not ever Kickstarter goes as intended. That's just a fact of life. Well, just because it's not going great doesn't mean that you have to totally abandon the project. With some reconfiguring, retooling, and reflection, a relaunch can be much more successful. That's what's going on with Kisarta, a new fantasy setting for 5th edition. The first Kickstarter was cancelled, but this new one is already more than 2x funded.

Discuss

How will you be remembered? Friend? Foe? Hero? Villain? But more than you, how will your family be remembered? Will your name echo throughout all of history? You certainly hope so, as that's what you're trying to make happen in Legacies, a new board game that's up on Kickstarter now. Build your wealth and prestige and find the perfect heir as you create the foundation for your family name.

Discuss

The world has collapsed in on itself. Seems the hollow core couldn't quite take it anymore. As everything got crushed and destroyed, only one thing was left unscathed: the city of Talos. Now, the leaders of the various races are seeking this one haven out, wanting to find a new place for their people to live. But with resources scarce, and the terrain entirely new and different, it won't be easy. That's the world you find yourself in in Talos: Collapse, a new board game that's up on Kickstarter now.

Discuss

Perhaps you've played the Divinity Original Sin II video game. But even if you haven't, you should go see the Divinity Original Sin Kickstarter campaign. The latter is based on the former and sees heroes travelling around the world of Rivellon, doing good deeds and completing quests, with each one having a lasting impact on the world around them. How will you change the world. The Kickstarter is up and running now.

Discuss

Venice in the 1500s. The city was filled with wealthy and influential merchants playing their trade. As they looked to bring more money and prestige to their name, they would also have to make sure not to draw too much suspicion all at once from the city's Inquisition. Can you thread that balance as you traverse the city's historic canals? Find out in Venice, a new board game that's up on Kickstarter now.

Discuss

The Great Wall of China. It was created to protect China's northern border from invasion. However, the wall alone was not enough to keep the enemy out. It took the work of generals commanding their troops up and down the wall. That's where you come in. Awaken Realms has launched a Kickstarter campaign for Great Wall, a new worker placement board game.

So, we're several weeks past Halloween. But if you're like most of my friends (and Ministry), everyday is Halloween. As such, you're always on the lookout for creepy, spooky, or just Halloween-themed games. Outrun is one such game. It's a new real-time card game that's up on Kickstarter now. Just don't get caught by the monsters!

Discuss

Having a pre-made adventure around makes a GM's life easier. They can basically just "grab and go" and they've got some sessions already put together. Sprinkle in some game-specific items here and there and your players may never know that you used one. Well, Dread Swamp of the Banshee is just such an adventure that's up on Kickstarter now.

Discuss

I've said time and again that there's no such thing as too many options when it comes to material for GMs to speed up their game prep. Well, if you're a GM and you're looking for new baddies to throw at your players, you should check out the Monsters of Aquilae campaign that's going on now. What games do they cover? Quite a few, including Pathfinder, 5E, OSRIC, and Pathfinder Second Edition.

Discuss

1888. London. The city is gripped by fear. A terror going by the name of Jack the Ripper is stalking the streets. Will anyone be able to bring this terrible serial killer to justice? Hopefully you can, as that's your job in 5th Evolution: Whitechapel, a new 5th Edition RPG adventure that's up on Kickstarter now.

Discuss

Let's start this off with some appropriate music, shall we?

Nowthen, I'm always a fan of board games that have a unique premise. Fantasy towns. Sci-fi space stations. Zombie-filled malls. They've been done. But a group of ballerinas looking to become the star in the new production? That you don't see too often, but it's what we have here in On Pointe, a new board game from Analog Game Studios that's up on Kickstarter now.

It's amazing how time works. Monday? Went by like it was nothing. Tuesday? Much the same. Yesterday? I can't really say that it was a long day. It was just "day." Yet, now that we're into Thursday, I'm like, "How is the week not over with yet!?!?" I guess I'm just exciteda bout game this weekend.

Anyway, as it is Thursday, that means terrain.

In the Terrain Corner we have: New Trees Available From Deep-Cut Studio, Lord Cireneg's City Printable Terrain Up On Kickstarter, and Forsaken Lands Printable Terrain Up On Kickstarter.
