The 7th Continent Board Game Up On Kickstarter

Serious Poulp has launched their Kickstarter campaign for their new adventure survival board game, The 7th Continent. The game is sort of a board game version of "choose your own adventure" books, where you and your other players work cooperatively in order to lift horrible curses that were placed upon you when you first visited this new land (I doubt the travel agent mentioned that when booking the original trip).

Midweek Snippets

I hope you're making it through the week just fine.
Mine's hit a bit of a bumpy road, as I'm typing this from the mechanic's. Thankfully, they have free wifi. Seems Bitey, my car, isn't feeling so good and so he's getting a checkup.
So yeah, hopefully your week is going better than mine. But what's keeping me going is some gaming news, such as the bite-sized stories we've got for you now.

In this batch we have: New s-300 missile available for BallisticAces from BattleGateGames, Klukva Miniatures Releases Two New Busts, Purgatory's Second Model WIP Posted, Baueda new 15mm Gallic Cavalry On Indiegogo, PMD Games is launching their first Kickstarter on October 5th, Microshoggoth slimes into Tooth & Sword, and Draccus promo available for purchase from iello.

Wyrd Games Posts October Releases for Malifaux

October seems to be made for Wyrd. Or perhaps it's vice-versa. Either way, it seems the two were made for each-other. As such, you can expect a lot of new minis for Malifaux, and that is certainly the case. The new sets include their first Story Encounter & Adventure Box, which has Malifaux models, but also a Through the Breach adventure.
Oh, there's also The Darkness Comes Rattling. I guess that's pretty important. ;)

Ares Games to release Odyssey: Wrath of Poseidon, Jolly Roger, Quickpick, and more at Essen

Essen is a great chance for companies to release new games to quite a large audience all at once (just like other big conventions like Salute and Gen Con). Ares Games is certainly taking that opportunity and running with it. They have quite a lot of games that they'll be offering for the first time at the show. You'll definitely want to stop by Hall 3-E100.

Steamcraft Steampunk Deck-Building Game Up On Kickstarter

Steam. It is arguably the most-important product in the industrialized world. Sure, we don't use it as much as we used to, but still, anything that runs via nuclear power technically runs on steam. Being so important, it's no wonder that it has its own fan group: Steampunk. Stone Manor Games has made a deckbuilding steampunk game, called Steamcraft, and has put it up on Kickstarter.

Walls, the Changing Maze Board Game On Kickstarter

When I was growing up, my sister was in Girl Scouts and my mom was a den mother. So I got brought along to a lot of those functions. I never did get into Boy Scouts, though. However, I don't know if they had a "Game Design Badge" like they apparently have now. Well, one troop's project is now on Kickstarter as Walls, a new board game.

Harebrained Schemes has launched their Kickstarter campaign for a new turn-based Battletech video game. What makes this one so special? Well, Jordan Weisman is on board to help out.

Bots Battleground Launches On Kickstarter

Bots Battleground is a new card game that's up on Kickstarter and looking for some funding love. In the game, you must play your robot cards in order to beat your opponent's robots. However, each one has special attacks and defenses that are better against some enemies than others. Team-up with other competitors to take down a tough opponent, but remember, there can only be one winner at the end.
There's also electronic dice that roll themselves. I figure that's something that should be mentioned.

New Add-Ons And New Faction Coming For Warpath Kickstarter

The Warpath Kickstarter campaign is inching ever closer to 10x funded. That would be a pretty big milestone for the campaign and the game, and not just in terms of having gotten to 10x their funding level. That will unlock the Asterians, a new faction for the game. Yes, they're rather lithe and their helmets look like they have pointy ears, but don't call them Elves. To help make it there, Mantic has created a bunch of add-ons that you can use to customize your force just how you want.
