Final Day for Fujian Trader on Kickstarter

Thinking Past has just over a day left on their Fujian Trader Kickstarter campaign. They’ve not quite made it to their goal, but they’re getting ever-closer. With one big, last push, they’re hoping to make it to their goal.
A bit of editorializing: I loved playing this game. You can check out my review here. If you’re a fan of games like Risk and Diplomacy and Settlers of Catan, I really think you’d love Fujian Trader. I’d love to be able to have this one in my gaming library someday, but that’ll only happen with your help.

New Pledge Level for Fujian Trader

Thinking Past has made a new, slightly more economical pledge level for their Fujian Trader game on Kickstarter. The new level is not only a little cheaper, but should also make shipping the game cheaper as well. So it’s like you save twice.

Not sure about the game? Check out my review (here) to see what I thought.

TGN Feature: Fujian Trader Review

I love Asian history. Growing up in the US, schools didn’t really teach me much of what happened on basically an entire hemisphere of the planet. It wasn’t until I started working on a history degree that I was finally able to take some Eastern Civ. classes.


The good people at Thinking Past sent me a prototype of their game to try out.
So grab your silk and rice and set sail for adventure. It’s time for another TGN Review. This time, it’s Fujian Trader.
