Crowdfunding


Since we're not supposed to be close to a bunch of other people right now, you'd think that taking an expedition deep into the rainforest might be a good idea. However, be careful if you're headed to the Caves of Rwenzori. They're full of dangers that you'll have to overcome if you want to make it out. Good thing we prepped by playing Caves of Rwenzori, a new board game that's up on Kickstarter now.

I remember it was at Gen Con seemingly a hundred years ago that I played my first ever of these then-new-fangled "deck building games." I was instantly hooked. However, over the years, many of them got a little... same-y. Well, Ausonia looks to shake things up as a "next-generation deckbuilding game." It's up on Kickstarter now.

Well, they did a Resident Evil 2. Why not do a Resident Evil 3? That's what Steamforged will be launching on Kickstarter in just a couple weeks. Take the fight against Umbrella to the next level. The campaign starts on April 28th.

Many of you have enjoyed the Tales From the Loop RPG. You've maybe even played the expansion. And you're possibly looking forward to the tv series. Well, soon, there'll be a new way to enjoy this strange world: a board game. Free League Publishing has launced a Kickstarter campaign for Tales From the Loop: The Board Game. Head over and get your pledge in now.

Indie Boards and Cards has the next installment of their Kodama saga up on Kickstarter. More than just growing an individual tree, Kodama Forest puts players in charge of a whole... well... forest. Players must try and make their section as attractive as possible for the spirits, all while still working with their opponents. The game has cooperative, competitive, and even a solo mode.

A new edition of the Fading Suns RPG is up on Kickstarter now. They've got a Universe Book, Character Book, and Gamemaster Book as their core books available. Adding to that, there's a Faction Book, GM screen, Tokens, and more that you can pick up so you've got everything you need to get playing and then some.

Many of us are stuck at home right now. So, at-best, we can play our RPGs with friends over virutal tabletops. Most games aren't designed for this. Gunship is. It's a new sci-fi RPG that's up on Kickstarter now. It's got a space-Western feel to it. So, saddle up your starship and head into the farthest reaches of space.

Silver Games has been working on more than just Ponyfinder. They've also got Tails of the City, a new RPG Adventure that's up on Kickstarter now. If you're playing Pathfinder 1st or 2nd edition or Dungeons & Dragons 5th, it's statted out for you. Head on over and check it out.

Sure, we're just getting into Spring (here in the North, anyway), but that doesn't mean you can't have some spooky and scary in your life. Horror in the Windy City is a turn-of-the-last-century setting book that'll make the horrors of Chicago even more horrifying. It's on Kickstarter with the accompanying The Devil's City novella.

As the DM/GM, you've gotta come up with every aspect of the game world the players will explore. That can be rough. Thankfully, there's pre-made settings that you can add to your own game for a quick and easy bit of world-building. In this case, we have Draharsis, a set of three islands that are filled with mysteries. You can find this setting book up on Kickstarter now.

It's Friday again. Now that I think about it... the week kinda went by fast... At least for me. I'm sitting here thinking, "wasn't it Tuesday just a day or so ago?" Apparently not. Oh well. I'm ok with this. Hopefully your week has been alright and you've been able to stay safe out there. These are strange times, indeed. As for me, I'm here to bring you your regularly-scheduled party platter of bite-sized gaming stories.

Today we have: New 2D Print Models Available From One Page Rules, Bushi Prime Strikers Available From Puppets War, Norse Foundry Running Dice of Crits Kickstarter, and Mystic Mariner and Mystic Noble Dice Available From Kraken Dice.

While a lot of us are working from home or on a... unscheduled break from work, we're spending a lot of time bored. Well, one thing that I know peps a lot of people up is a good Kickstarter campaign. CMON's next is just around the corner. They've announced an April 14th launch date for Ankh: Gods of Egypt. Mark your calendars (or Steve or Laura your calenders, if you prefer).

Elnerth. Land of the Keepers, powerful beings each in charge of their own Faction of followers. Among them, war is eternal as each looks to destroy the other's Sanctuaries. Will this constant war ever find a winner and come to an end? That's up to you to figure out in Sanctuary: The Keepers Era, a new hand-management card game that's up on Kickstarter now.

You wake up and find yourself in a dungeon. Guh. I hate when that happens. But there's a way out, surely so. You've just gotta find it. And hey, if you find some loot along the way, that's just yours by fiat, right? Anyway, that's the story behind Dungeon Breakout, a new board game from Goblinko that's up on Kickstarter now.

The icy grip of winter is releasing its hold on us here in the Northern Hemisphere. Sure, in Atlanta, it got to almost freezing last night and my coworkers up in Canada have multiple feet of snow in their back yard, but still. If you're a fan of winter, you might be sad to see it go. However, you can always live vicariously through playing Winter Kingdom, the new game by Queen Games that's up on Kickstarter now.

Ankh is the next board game that's coming to Kickstarter from CMON. It's the third in the series of games created by the people that also brought you Blood Rage and Rising Sun. Egypt is moving to a monotheistic society and the gods are fighting to see who that single deity will be. The game will be on the platform on April 14th.

You know me. I'm a fan of games with a unique premise. Well, in Zoollywood, players are penguins looking to get the best part in a new movie. Yeah, that's right. They're ready to audition and only one will be the star. Lights! Camera! Action!
The game's up on Kickstarter now.

Longtime readers will know my love of "gaming backpack games." They're the games that you can just toss in your backpack with you when you go to gaming night and pull out at a moment's notice when there's some downtime between other games. Well, up on Kickstarter now, there's a set of three such games. They're called GPS, Sequoia, and Mountain Goats, and each takes about 10min to play.

I'm here to chew bubble gum and kick ass... and I'm all out of bubble gum... because I can't go out to the store... ... ... ... Anyway, They Live is a classic cult movie about aliens taking over the world through subterfuge, subliminal messages, and infiltration. Thanks to a special pair of sunglasses, their secret is out and now it's time to put a stop to them by exposing their lies. That's what you'll be trying to do in They Live: Assault on Cable 54, a new board game that's up on Kickstarter now.

Halfway through the week and we're at the beginning of a new month. Welcome to April, everyone. Considering how things are in the world right now? I say we skip out on April Fool's. Alright? Good. But what we shouldn't skip out on are some bite-sized gaming stories.

Today on the platter we have: Legendary Dragons 3D Printable Files Up On Kickstarter and Blacklist Miniatures Previews Huge Dragon From Upcoming Kickstarter.

You know Gloomhaven? You know how much you love it? Well, now there's a new stand-alone, compatable, sequel game. It's called Frosthaven. It's up on Kickstarter right now and is taking everyone's money.
