Cul-De-Sac Conquest Heading Through Stretch Goals
Here is a big shoutout to Rebecca Clark from Break From Reality for completing our first unlock-able card challenge to make a Wikipedia page for Cul-De-Sac Conquest!
The Wikipedia page still needs some additional content and credibility to stay up as Wikipedia is odd about adding a ton of secondary sources, and fitting their formatting guidelines. However, it is hilarious. Anyone else who wants to add to it feel free to do so. Our social media extraordinaire, Ashley, added some new sources and news coverage to try to adhere more to Wikipedia's rules too so that should help.

Mr. Maksimov's Manor coming to Kickstarter in January 2016
Mr. Maksimov's Manor is played in four rounds. In each of these rounds players will bid on Maksimov's possessions during his estate sale. Item cards that players can gather will either build on each other for more points or cause the player to lose points. When bidding, players need to balance how much value can be gained from the available items with what cards could hurt them. Also, if Mr. Maksimov's will turns up, it could change everything!
Mr. Maksimov's Manor is a casual game that both non-gamers and strategy gamers can appreciate. Casual gamers will enjoy the game's easy to learn rules and the feelings of excitement and anticipation that the game play yields. What will keep strategy gamers coming back is the ability to manipulate the game's odds, constant risk and reward decisions, and subtle elements of social deduction.
Aquelarre Dark & Mature Medieval RPG On Kickstarter
Almost 25 years after it was first released in Spain, Aquelarre ("Coven") is finally going to receive an English translation. The game has enjoyed popularity in Spain and won multiple awards, and curious gamers have asked about an English version for many years. Now, through the efforts of Stewart Wieck (founder of White Wolf) and translator Lester Smith (multiple-Origins-award winning designer), the translation will become a reality.
Set in medieval Spain, the RPG blends history, mystery, demons, witches, and monsters from Spanish legends in a system that relies on percentile rolls. Since it has gone through three editions, rules for combat, weapons, and healing are all nicely detailed, with options to suit a variety of playing styles. The core book not only provides the standard rules for character creation and the like, but also significant information about medieval life and the supernatural, as well as a bestiary. The art is comprised of thematic and consistently gorgeous pieces - but like the game itself, the art does not shy away from dark themes.
The Kickstarter aims to produce gorgeous full-color deluxe editions of the 500 page main book, but a 250 page black and white Brevarium version will also be available. A DM's screen, decks that replace dice, and printed copies of King Arthur Pendragon (5.2 edition) are available as add-ons. It is running now through November 16th.
