Hey there, Legal Eagles. It's time to think like a lawyer (love that channel on YouTube). Rock Manor Games is looking to take you to court. But don't worry, you're not being put on trial for anything. Instead, you're playing as legal counsel. Lawyer Up is a new asymmetrical card game where players look to argue their case in court. The game is up on Kickstarter now.
I like to think of myself as a good baker. Generally speaking, people have enjoyed the things I've brought out for them when it comes to sweets. So, I would hope that nobody would see anything I make as deadly (unless you've got an allergy or something). However, everything in Deadly Desserts can potentially put you to an end. It's a new trick-taking card game that's up on Kickstarter now.
Thursday. We're sliding back down into the weekend. I, for one, can't wait for it. I've got D&D on Saturday (we're playing virtually, for anyone concerned). And if there's anything I could use, it's an escape from the current world for a while. I hope you're all able to find escapes as well. Gaming is a great way to take your mind off of things for a while. And when gaming, some good terrain can really make things that much better. So, let's make your gaming tables look that much better.
Today in the Terrain Corner we have: Acheson Sale 20-40% Off Thru April 19, Townbuilder Unlimited 3D Printable Terrain Up Online, Village of Verrell 3D Printable Terrain Up On Kickstarter, Northvakt Viking Village Printable 3D Terrain Up On Kickstarter, Tizec Waterfront Modular 3D Printable Terrain Up On Kickstarter, 3D Printable Fantasy Ruins Up On Kickstarter, and Stone City of Arkenfel 3D Printable Terrain up On Kickstarter.
It's the roaring 20s. Err, the roaring 1920s, that is. Prohibition is on. Space travel is possible. People have super powers. It's just like you read in your history books recreated in Capers Offworld RPG, a new supplment for the CAPERS RPG that's up on Kickstarter now.
As I mentioned in the Snippets post, it's Spring here in the Northern Hemisphere. In India, this is celebrated with a massive festival. Now, I'm sure that the event will be smaller this year than most, but that doesn't mean we can't be thrilled with some warmer temps out. You can do this vicariously in Holi: Festival of Colors, a new multi-tiered board game that's up on Kickstarter. And you don't even have to travel to India.
You're getting your space pilots license. It's the culmination of what you've been working for for years. But just as you're finishing up your training, an alien race comes in and destroys your home planet. You manage to escape, just barely, along with some other refugees. Now, you're in a dark, cold region of space with an unknown enemy on your tail? That's where you find yourself in Starlight, a new cooperative board game that's up on Kickstarter now.
The folks over at Shades of Vengeance want to make sure that you have all the Era: Survival books you possibly can. They have had one successful Kickstarter for a whole bunch of expansions. Now, they're looking to have another. They've launched their Expansions into the Unknown 2 campaign where you can get all the Era: Survival you want, and more.
Halfway through. We're halfway through the week already. As always, that's never a complaint. You know how much I love my weekends. Even if it doesn't look like there'll be much to do. It's a couple days of rest. But, in the meantime, along with all our preserved foods, let's snack on some bite-sized gaming stories.
Today on the platter we have: Blacklist Miniatures Fantasy Figures Coming to Kickstarter Next Month, Kraken Dice Warehouse Sale Happening Now, and Keyfish Crit Goldfish Polyhedral Dice Sets Up On Kickstarter.
Every civilization has their own monuments. Edifices to their own power and greatness. They stand the test of time and many are known to us today. In Monuments, a new board game that's up on Kickstarter now, you'll take on the role of leader of one of these civilizations and build your own monuments to greatness. However, you can't just focus on building, as the rest of your empire needs tending, too.
Paris. It's arguably one of the most beautiful cities in the world. And you can get in on the ground floor of the architecture boom that made it such back in the early 1900s. Investing in buildings, upkeeping the monuments, and building new ones is your job in Paris, a new board game from Game Brewer that's up on Kickstarter now.
Doing a double-flip off the top turnbuckle down onto your opponent in the middle of the ring. Giving them the Polar's Elbow. Grabbing yourself a steel chair. These are all things you can do in World Wide Wrestling, the RPG all about the action in the squared circle. A new edition of the game is up on Kickstarter now.
The campaign is coming to an end. No, not the Kickstarter (that still has a bit of time), but the campaign that your players started when the gods of Mescalaro and Sapelo Island first called on their help. The Devil's Bridge will be the third and final installment in the adventure path. You can go pleadge for it now over on Kickstarter.
If you're running a Castles & Crusades game, or thinking about running one, and want a really in-depth tome all about how to do it, with all sorts of extras that can be extrapolated out to any RPG, you'll want to check out the Castle Keepers Guide Kickstarter campaign. It's up and running now.
Well, the world has come to an end. Damnit, Karl. I told you to wash your hands! Anyway, now humanity is left trying to piece together what they can from the ruins. Of course, everyone's out to get theirs, and there's a lot of other dangers out in the wasteland. Thankfully, we have games like Ruination where we can practice. The game's up on Kickstarter now.
Magic Items. Along with your class, spells, and abilities, they can easily be what defines your character. My bard wouldn't be anywhere near the same if he didn't have his magic guitar. Well, if you're looking for a new set of magic boots or a cape or hat or whatever else, maybe check out The Griffon's Saddlebag, a new magic item compendium that's up on Kickstarter now.
Well, it's kind of a downbeat headed into the weekend. I'm sure many of you had plans but are rethinking them because of the outbreak. That's just how it goes. Remember: stay safe for you. Wash your hands frequently. Practice good hygene. And be sure to stock up on snacks so you don't have to go out. We've got a decent stash of bite-sized gaming stories for you as well to help tide you over for the weekend.
Today on the platter we have: The Scourge of Valtan Forest: 3D Printable STLs for Tabletop Games Up On Kickstarter, Viking Legends Minis and Terrain Up On Kickstarter, RPG Sounds Up On Kickstarter, Legendary Metal Coins Season 5 Up On Kickstarter, Kraken Buy 3-Get 1 Free Sale Happening Now, Desert Scorpions Minis Available From Victoria Miniatures, and Mystic Feywyld Dice Available From Kraken Dice.
Greebo Games had been making their Cutiemals fantasy sports teams for a bit now. Now, they're doing something just slightly different. They've got a new Kickstarter campaign up for another pair of teams. But these are a bit more undead than usual. They're the Necromals and they're ready to hit the pitch.
Norse mythology is filled with amazing tales of heroes, adventure, and epic gear. Sounds pretty perfect for a Dungeons & Dragons campaign, really. And if you're looking to do just that, look no further than the Norse Grimoire up on Kickstarter now. The campaign is also looking to reprint the Journey to Ragnarok book as well, because why not head to the ultimate battle to end the universe?
I may not know art, but I know what I like. And I know I like games. And The Enigma Experiences are both art and games. They're... well... they're... umm... well, it's complicated (being fair, it's right there in the name), but it's a whole ton of different things all brought together with some classic art pieces. The whole project is up on Kickstarter now.
Not every Kickstarter is successful the first time it's up on Kickstarter. That's just a fact of life. But, if the producers feel they have a good product, they'll take things back and look them over, retool, reconfigure, and relaunch again. And that's just what's happening with Salt & Sail, a new board game that's back up on Kickstarter now.
Weight loss. It sucks. I know, since I'm trying to lose about 10 stone, myself. But, I did my workout this morning and feel better for it. And I can even bring my weight loss goals to the tabletop in Rumbbell FatDragon Invasion, a new deckbuilding card game all about fitness (and I don't mean "fitness whole pizza in my mouth") that's up on Kickstarter now.
Technology is moving at a very rapid pace. Seemingly every day, there's a new breakthrough somewhere. However, despite it being 2020, we're not quite to the cyberpunk world we were promised back in the 80s and 90s. Oh well, we can still live vicariously through tabletop games such as Ascendancy. It's a new cyberpunk RPG that's up on Kickstarter now.
It's two, two, two Kickstarters in one! This campaign is looking to fund new editions of both the Monsters! Monsters! RPG as well as the Toughest Dungeon in the World (for said Monsters! Monsters! RPG). And, it looks like they've done it, as they're past their funding goal. But, of course, you can still head over and check it out.
Space. We're on the cusp of a new age of exploration of our solar system. Some say the first person to step on Mars has already been born. But while actual space exploration takes a lot of time and money, we can still enjoy going out among the planets vicariously through board games. Xtronaut lets you do just that, and a new edition is up on Kickstarter now for you to check out.
I have to say, I've been starving for some just light, fun, easy conversation lately. Everything is so down and dour that it was really grating on me. But getting one of those started can be rough. Thankfully, there's a new card game up on Kickstarter to help. It's called Outta Our Shells. Have yourselves a look-see.
