I'm a big fan of abstract strategy puzzle games. So, Gorinto looks to be right up my alley. It's a new board game up on Kickstarter where you're trying to gain wisdom by moving stones up onto the shrine, moving them from your mountain board onto the main board. You'll change the landscape with each play. In the end, who will achieve enlightenment?

If there was ever a game that seemed destined to come back again, it'd be Boomerang. And that's just what's happening up on Kickstarter now. Grail Games is running a campaign for a new edition of Boomerang: Australia, but this return comes with extras. There's two other Boomerang-games coming back with it.

You'd think that in the wake of Hades winning over all the other gods and starting to bring all of mankind down to hell, people would be able to set aside their differences and work together. However, that's not the case in Hades Trap. Players are working against one-another as they try and collect holy medallions that will stop Hades' plan. The game is up on Kickstarter now.

The wreck of a massive ship, sent from an advanced civilization, has been found. Different adventurers, research teams, and more have tried to investigate the area, but none have been ever heard from again. What's going on inside the massive hull? That's up to you to find out in Testament, a new cooperative card game from Japanime games. It's up on Kickstarter now.

Whoooooooooooooooooah! We're halfway there!
Whooo-OH! It'll be the weekend relatively soon!

Ok, so I'm not exactly Bon-Jovi. Who is?
Anyway, it's still true that we're halfway to the weekend. I'm looking forward to an Eberron game that I still need to make a character for. Might try and do that this afternoon. We'll see. But while I'm crunching the numbers on a new PC, you should crunch on a bite-sized gaming story.

On the platter today we have: Norse Miniatures Adventurers and Adversaries 2 Kickstarter Launching Soon

Stretching your dollar further than it'd usually go is something all of us try and do. We all love getting stuff for free or extra with an order, and that's what Gamelyn Games has going on now. They're running a sale on their Heroes of Land, Air & Sea game. Go get more game for your buck.

A mystery is afoot! It can be tough to include a mystery in your RPGs, owing to the freewheeling nature of what parties tend to get into. But Paizo's here to help with their Threefold Conspiracy Adventure Path for Starfinder. The first part, The Chimera Mystery, is due out soon. In this article, Paizo looks at running mysteries in campaigns.

Tears for Fears reminded us that everybody wants to rule the world. Well, in Deep State: New World Order, you just might be able to. Of course, you're not alone (everybody wants to, remember?). You'll have to be smarter and more cunning than other hidden-organization members if you want the ultimate prize. In the end, who will rule? The game's up on Kickstarter now.

The adventure's over. You've been paid. Time to head to the local tavern and celebrate. The Red Dragon Inn series puts players in the role of adventurers headed to the bar after an adventure to have a raucus party. It's filled with all manner of fantasy characters, and a new one will soon be joining the ranks. Evil Pooky is the game's 50th character, so SlugFest games is making them extra-special. The campaign to get them made is up on Kickstarter now.

There's many reasons to possibly miss out on a Kickstarter campaign. Heck, this month, I'm running a little tight, so I've not been able to put in as much into pledges as I'd wanted or back every campaign I was hoping to. However, next month, I should have a couple more bucks and can head on in. That's what's possible right now if you missed out on the Infinity Defiance campaign. They're taking late pledge pre-orders now over on gamefound.
