Dawn of the Archmage Relaunches on Kickstarter

Not every Kickstarter campaign makes it to their funding goal on the first try. There’s no shame in that, as I have seen many campaigns retool and make it even further the second time around than they could’ve ever hoped the first time. With any luck, that will be the case for Dawn of the Archmage. The skirmish miniatures game from SolarFlare Games is back up on Kickstarter with a revamped campaign. You can check it out now.

Midweek Snippets

The week of “getting back to usual” continues along. Of course, we’ll get back off schedule a little, since it’s a 3-day weekend here in the States. But still, good to be on schedule while you can.

Archmage Origins Card Game Up On Kickstarter

I’m a fan of hidden-information games. Being able to bluff your opponent to make moves they think they should make, but actually help you, is something I love (to try) to do. Archmage Origins lets you do stuff like that, as you and your opponent are looking to capture the most powerful monsters on the board. But where are those monsters located, and have they moved since you last looked, are two things you might not know until the very end. The game is up now on Kickstarter.

Friday Snippets

Well, it’s Friday again. Woo!
I hope your week went by as quickly as mine did. Being busy after a long weekend will do that. And this weekend looks to be really busy as well. Lots of projects just showed up at the door that I will be dealing with on Sunday as well as into next week. Considering what I’m working on, that’s very much not a complaint. But if I’m going to be doing all of that, I need to be well-fed. So I’m gonna nosh on some bite-sized gaming stories, and you should, too.

Today on the platter we have: New Promo Releases From NonsenseMiniatures, Ouroboros Miniatures Fey Kickstarter is live, Archmage Origins Coming To Kickstarter, Greebo Games Limited Edition Easter Minis Up On Kickstarter, New Chickens and Rooster Set Available From Tabletop-Art, New Preview for Circle of Blood by Last Bullet Games, and New Release Available From Hitech Miniatures.

Midweek Snippets

This week just seems to be screaming by. At least, I feel it is. I’m hoping yours is going by well-enough. I feel it’s mostly because it’s been rather busy over on this side of the screen. Various proofing projects have been passing over my desk. What can I say? I enjoy editing.

Anyway, if I’m going to make it through the rest of the week, I need to power-up on bite-sized gaming stories.

On today’s platter we have: Cold Steel Wardens: Rogues Gallery Kickstarter on Final Day, Microworld Games Releases 6mm Space Rats and Space Ogres, NonsenseMiniatures Releases Ajax, War Co.

The week rolls on. We’re halfway there. The weekend is ever-closer as time marches on, and other sayings of “it’s not yesterday anymore!” It seems people around me are feeling a bit drained. Tuesday wasn’t the best for them, so they’re gonna try and regroup today. Along with that, getting some bite-size gaming stories in their brain will help out, I’m sure. So let’s get to that.

On today’s platter we have: Jess is done for Purgatory, Men and Monsters of Ethiopia Cardstock Characters Now Available, Final Week For The Lords of Rock On Kickstarter, Triple Ace Games Running Viking Dice Kickstarter, New Kromlech Release: Legionary Frag Launcher, and True 13 and 15 sided Dice now funding on Kickstarter.

Sunday Snippets

Ah, Sunday.
For me, at least, the relaxing day of the week. Sure, there’s chores to do like laundry and cooking for the week, but overall, it’s a day to just relax a bit. Also, I’m told there’s some major sporting event-thing going on today. Ok, I know it’s the Super Bowl. But I’m more of a “hockey” guy than a “football” guy. But hey, if you are going to watch the Super Bowl, nothing goes better than a bunch of bite-sized snacks.

Speaking of bite-sized, here’s some bite-size stories to munch on.

Today we have: ADAPT Card Game Reaches Funding Goal, Nightmare Forest: Dead Run Reaches Funding Goal, New Old West Releases From Knuckleduster, Battle Arena Show Reaches Funding Goal, New Statuesque Asylum character and TWO new sizes of female head sprues, New Warsenal Limited Edition Unit Markers for Infinity The Game Released, New Video Preview for Polyversal 6mm SciFi Game, The Rhinotaur Added to Circle of Chaos Kickstarter, Age of Tyrants announces how to play videos, The Dryden Heavy Destroyer Miniature is Now Available, and Mountain Miniatures preview pics for End of Times Kickstarter.

Final Days for Dumpster Brawl on Kickstarter

Dumpster Brawl, from SolarFlare Games, is starting to surge towards the finish line over on Kickstarter. They’re getting ever-closer to their goal.
Will your pledge be the one that takes them over?

Source

From the campaign:

It was an exciting, fun and exhausting week at BGG Con 2014 – but AWESOME!

I was able to play Dumpster Brawl with more than 80 people and every single person said they enjoyed the game. Look at this guy!
He was a great trash talker and, incidentally, WON!

I think one of the things I am most proud of, is the ability of anyone playing to have a good shot at winning the game. No matter how good someone might be at cards, how good a memory they have or whatever the age difference is – anyone sitting at the table can win.

Final Days for Dumpster Brawl on Kickstarter

SolarFlare Games is in their final couple days over on Kickstarter for their Dumpster Brawl card game. They’ve still got a little bit to go in order to fund, but a big push at the end and they should be there.

From the campaign:

The 3rd game play mode will be added to the game rules for all versions of the game.

That is a success on y’alls part. Great job and awesome people!

We are just ready to cross 10,000 and are closing on the goal. Please get the game in front of as many people as possible and let them know this was designed by a family for families.

New promos added to Dumpster Brawl Kickstarter

SolarFlare Games keeps chugging along on their Dumpster Brawl Kickstarter campaign. They’re showing off a new, special promo card to go with it.

From the campaign:

The promo card that will be provided to all backers (maybe 2 -depending on number of backers) is a BOOSTER card that will be usable in the game when it is produced and features Ernie the mascot for BoardGameGeek.com. This card is the most powerful booster card that will be in the game.

TGN Review: Dumpster Brawl By SolarFlare Games

The old saying goes, “one man’s trash is another man’s treasure.” Well, in dumpster brawl, players are trying to rummage around a giant stack of garbage in order to find matching sets in order to win the game. The game has several variants, but they’re all variations of rummy-style set collecting. The first one with three sets and no extra cards is the winner. The game is currently up on Kickstarter and looking for some funding love.

Time to go dumpster diving.

The Meeple Mechanic’s Foxhole Fiver with SolarFlare Games

The Meeple Mechanic sat down with Dave Killingsworth from SolarFlare Games for their Foxhole Fiver (five questions while a Kickstarter campaign is going on).

Source

From the post:

Dumpster Brawl was an attempt to have a time where we would all get together and play a game and bond a little. Let them see their nerdy future step-dad could make something they could relate to. IT WORKED. They really loved the game and said I should share it with other families like I did with Thrash-Car but they said this time make sure people know its meant for families and kids and just quick cool fun.

Get ready for the Dumpster Brawl

SolarFlare Games has launched their Kickstarter campaign for Dumpster Brawl, their new card game. Go check out the campaign.

From the campaign:

Get ready to rumble and rummage in a race to see who can collect a winning collection of treasures from your neighborhood dumpster. You need to beware, as you are not the only animal prowling the alley. Other players are looking to ruin all of your hard work, in this fast paced game of combat, strategy, luck and trash. Play your favorite character as you and your friends get ready to prove one animal’s trash is another animal’s treasure!

Welcome to the wildest and funniest racing circuit you have ever seen! Suit up, sign on and prove you are the best Team Owner around. Show the rest that your team can’t be beat and that you only endorse a winner.

In THRASH-CAR you, as the Owner, will choose your crew, car, and strategy. You, then, have to take your team and help them race their way to victory in some of the wildest and toughest race conditions ever.

Thrash-Car, a new racing game, coming to Kickstarter soon

SolarFlare Games is working on a new racing tabletop game called Thrash-Car. They’re working on development now and hope to have the game up on Kickstarter soon.

From the website:

After extensive testing and revisions, we were able to put together a game that has flexibility, speed, fun, humor and the ability to mess with the other players on their turn. We have made a game that allows you to just race while still messing with your neighbors (always a fun game benefit) and even better you can ram them into the wall over and over.

THRASH-CAR is designed to have a quickness of play, strategy and make you laugh all at the same time, and it does this very well.

Oh, and best of all, THRASH-CAR has Rednecks, Soccer Moms, Old Folks and Hippies all roaring around a race track with personality and their own unique style! Pick your team and start your engine!
