The folks at Indie Boards and Cards had one Kickstarter campaign for Kodama 3D going, but it wasn't quite right. So, they did some pruning, grabbed some extra fertilizer, and they're looking to have this next go be better. They've relaunched a new campaign and are looking for funding now.

The graphic design behind a game can make or break it. You may not think about it often, but you probably have looked at a game and gone, "I mean... that just doesn't look right." Or "that game looks awesome! Let's give it a try!" It's the Graphic Designer that did that. And you can be the new one for Indie Boards & Cards, as they're hiring.
Trees. They're a vital part of the ecosystem. The spirits help them grow and become strong. And that's what you'll be doing in Kodama 3D. Indie Boards and Cards' popular 2D tree-growing card game is now getting a 3D makeover. The project is up on Kickstarter now.
Stronghold Games is looking to bring you the fifth expansion for Terraforming Mars. And they didn't just want to add a couple new cards or some new cubes. Nope, it's a whole huge expansion for Turmoil. Go to a new section of the planet entirely and deal with new corporations, projects, and global events. Yes, all of Mars will feel these changes. The expansion is up on Kickstarter now.
Look, sometimes, you gotta just do a slap-dash job to do what you can with the time and resources you have. When the Empress of Russia is going to do a float-by of your town, you gotta make it look good, no matter what. That's the story behind Potemkin Empire, a new board game from Indie Boards and Cards that's up on Kickstarter now.
Indie Boards and Cards has launched a Kickstarter campaign for Aeon's End: The New Age. It's a new expansion to their Aeon's End cooperative deckbuilder card game, and offers all new content in the form of the Expedition Mode. There's all sorts of new cards as well, all of it fully compatible with previous sets from the game.
I've been watching some documentaries lately on streaming that are all about natural disasters. Of course, there's some about earthquakes. With just a couple seconds of shaking, they can lay waste to entire cities. And in Aftershock, it's up to you to put things back together again. Stronghold Games is running a Kickstarter campaign for the new Deluxe Edition of the game.
Having a digital version of a game you love can be super handy. You can easily take it with you on your smart device of choice. That means, you can get it out when you want and play wherever you want without having to carry the whole game box around with you. And there's no chance of losing a component or two along the way. If you're a fan of the Aeon's End game, it's up on Kickstarter now, looking to get a digital version.

Want to overthrow the powers that be? JR Honeycutt reviews Coup from Indie Boards and Cards. Vive la Revolution!
There's something to be said about only keeping the games you like most as part of your collection. Why have games you're not thrilled with cluttering up your shelves? Well, Coup is one of those games, for me at least, that would definitely be one I would own if I followed that line of thinking. It is my favorite hidden-role bluffing card game.
From the post:
A thick mist is before you as you approach. You hear a low guttural rumble beyond the fog. Gripping your shield and axe you press forward but you are not afraid as you know what lies ahead – You are a Dragon Slayer! In the game Dragon Slayer you play the role of a warrior trying to defeat various types of dragons with the ultimate goal being crowned the master slayer. You must reach far and wide in your search for the dragons you must defeat but even though you may become victorious in your adventure your fellow companions may challenge you to keep fighting on!
To win the game you must be the slayer that accumulates 40 points but also allowing the other players to complete one more round to perhaps tie or catch your score. Ties are resolved by players completing another round to determine the winner.
