Microbrew Board Game Up On Kickstarter

I am a teetotaler. So I'm not one much for craft beers or such. That doesn't mean that I can't appreciate the time and effort that goes into making those. I just don't really enjoy the fruits of those labors. However, I can get into a worker placement game that involves brewing the best beer you can. That's what you're doing in Microbrew, a new pocket-sized board game that's up on Kickstarter now.

Midweek Snippets

We're already at Wednesday. (Wednesday is spelled incorrectly - Demetri Martin) I don't know about you, but at least the first couple days of the week have gone by quickly for me.

Today on the platter we have: Kraken Dice Previews New Releases, Shieldwall Shields for Miniatures Up On Kickstarter, YFT Designs Back To School Sale, and Acheson Creations Masters for Sale.

Unruly Bastards Party Card Game Up On Kickstarter

Unruly Bastards is a new party card game up on Kickstarter. It's sort of like competitive chirades, where each player other than the judge tries to act out a set of cards. The one that does it best (according to the aforementioned judge) is the winner of the round and becomes the new judge. Repeat until someone's won five rounds. The game is up on Kickstarter now.

They're running a Kickstarter campaign now in order to get him off the ground.

Steamforged Running Horizon Zero Dawn Kickstarter

Along with Guild Ball, Steamforged seems to be turning themselves into the "popular video games turned into board games" company. Certainly nothing wrong with that. Their latest Kickstarter campaign looks to bring Horizon Zero Dawn to your tabletops. And considering they're already closing in on 3x funded, it's looking like a sure thing at this point.

Eye for an Eye: An Occulite Arena Combat Boardgame Back Up On Kickstarter

If at first you don't succeed, try, try again. It's an old saying that's good words to live by. If you feel you've got a quality product and want to get it out to the masses, just because a Kickstarter doesn't initially succeed mean you should throw in the towel. That's the attitude Darwin Games is taking, as they've relaunched their Kickstarter for Eye for an Eye, the arena combat board game.

Having a pre-made adventure means that a GM doesn't have to spend so much time coming up with ideas whole-cloth. But they can also sometimes feel constraining.

You know, even with the shorter week we've got going on, I still was thinking today was Friday. Last night before I went to bed and this morning when I got up, I was like, "Woo! Friday!"

The Mists of Akuma Mega Adventures Kickstarter Happening Now

Having a pre-made adventure makes the GM's work so much easier. They can still play around with it and add in their own touches and flares, but the maps are made, the monsters are tracked out, the NPCs have their motivations clear. The Mists of Akuma Mega Adventures Kickstarter gives two books to GMs to use in the Shadow of the Demon Lord setting.
