Kickstarters are fickle things. Sometimes, the first campaign doesn't go as expected or desired. Or the backers point out something that could be easily fixed. Or a million other things that oculd change the course of the campaign. Sometimes, it's just better to cancel and relaunch. And that's what Grey Fox Games has done with After the Empire.
Actually, the name is a little misleading. Curly Fu is just one of the variants of a tile-flipping game rules set that's up on Kickstarter now. The rules might be the same, but the different skins of the game have different names. Curly Fu is the Detective version. Urashima is the Far-East version. Dark Matter is the horror version. And Spellbreaker is the Cyberpunk version. Whichever you want to go with, you can check them out on Kickstarter.
New board games are coming out all the time. Just look at my posts here. And even then, I'll admit that I can't catch everything, try as I might. Thankfully, there's others out there helping to make sure you know about any and every game worth finding. The first Board Game Book did a good job of that. But, obviously, with more new games available, they needed a new volume. And that's why The Board Game Book Volume 2 is up on Kickstarter now.
Mana Project Studio is looking to expand your D&D games with the release of their HIstoria dark fantasy Renaissance setting book. It includes 15 new races including different species, which gives you more than 50 different new character options there. There's also new classes, new types of magic, and new gear, including period-appropriate rules for firearms. If you're looking to get much more out of your games, you might want to check out the game on Kickstarter now.
Well, Rome's fallen (and it can't get up). Damnit, Carlus, I told you to not let the barbarians in to check out the monuments. Now we've found ourselves out in Tenebria and we have to survive as possibly the last Romans there are. That's the story behind Tenebria: Remnant of Rome, a new RPG that's up on Kickstarter now.
The modern culture of Japan still owes much to ancient heritage. It's this mixing of old and new culture that you'll experience in Shibuyan Knights, a new RPG that's up on Kickstarter now. Choose your guild and become the top Roppongan in the city.
Many of you are Kings of War fans out there. You have your armies. You send them out on grand crusades for your side. You take time and care assembling and painting them. But maybe you want to get even more down in there with your forces. Well, you can do that with the Kings of War RPG that's up on Kickstarter now.
We're making our way there, everyone. The weekend will soon be upon us. I don't know about you, but this week has felt like it's had an extra day in it. I feel like today should be Friday instead of Thursday. But here I am in my Thursday shirts and typing up a Terrain Corner. So, it must be Thursday. Might as well keep on keepin' on.
Today in the Terrain Corner we have: New Dwarven Barrels Available From Scibor, Stone Fences Available Tomorrow From Spellcrow, Future world Creator Modular Tiles Up On Kickstarter, Panoceania Map Available From Deep-Cut Studio, and Sci-Fi X Pieces Available From TTCombat.
The D&D Adventure Box Kickstarter is more than just a module for your players to go through. It includes all manner of sensory experiences including even smell, as it comes with a scented candle. And there's different sounds as well, plus props for visual and tactile elements. It's a bit of everything, and it's up on Kickstarter now.
Fidget Cubes. One of the runaway hits of early Kickstarter. I've got one on my desk at work and two at home. The creators of the Fidget Cube are back. But this time, it's not some little desk toy to keep your hands occupied. They're making a party game. They have returned to Kickstarter to get Fidget Factory made.
Just as WWI was at its climax, a strange fog permeated the Argonne forest, killing and warping whomever tried to go into it. This brought the conflict to a swift end, as entire armies were swallowed by it. Now, 66 years has gone by with the fog staying mostly still. But now it is growing. What is in store for the world? That's for you to find out in Eldritch Century, a new alternative history RPG that's up on Kickstarter now.
Roses are red.
Roses are blue.
Roses are striped.
Will you be able to corner the market on the best roses and crush the competition?
So, it's not the most romantic of poems, but waddyagonnado? It does explain the concept behind Rare Roses, a new strategy board game that's up on Kickstarter now.
Halfway through the week. Hopefully, yours is going well. I'm looking forward to the 3-day weekend we'll be having here in the US as Labor Day approaches. Time for one last BBQ before the cold comes in (actually, there'll still be plenty of time for that here in Atlanta, but shhhh!). But before we get to those tasty treats, let's have someother tasty treats in the form of a couple bite-sized gaming stories.
Today on the platter we have: New Free Play Tokens From One Page Rules, Path of Chaos Metal Dice Up On Kickstarter, and Kraken Announces Sylvan Dice Set.
On the planet Celus, sky pirates hunt the dangerous Cresters, looking for valuabe resources. But the skies are filled with such pirates, and why hunte a Crester when you can just steal one from your opponent? In all, it's a balance of those two tasks, as well as actually getting your cargo home, that you must master if you want to succeed in Windward, a new strategy board game that's up on Kickstarter now.
Sometimes, classic games get themselves a new publisher and there's a new edition put out. In this case, the classic game is Successors, where players take on the role of Alexander the Great's generals as they fight over his empire, and the publisher is Phalanx. The new edition is up on Kickstarter now.
War And Peace.
No, not the classic novel. This time, we're talking about the classic Mark McLaughlin board game all about the Napoleonic Wars. Cover all of Europe with your French armies, or fight back against it. Can you hang on to Europe? Will you head into Russia in October? The new edition of the game is up on Kickstarter now.
"Honesty is the best policy" is a good motto to live by in your everyday life.
When you're sitting down at the gaming table... ... maybe not so much. That's the story behind Honesty Stone, a new abstract strategy board game that's up on Kickstarter now.
Sure, there's plenty of adventure to be had while traveling around the continent of Trudvang. But what about all the adventure to be had while traveling inside the continent of Trudvang? And I don't mean just within the borders, but getting down, deep underground. There lies Musphelheim, home of the dwarves. RiotMinds is running a Kickstarter to bring this new region book to their Trudvang Chronicles RPG.
What do you get when you combine legendary game designer Richard Garfield with a man who went on Jeopardy and mopped up for show after show? You get Half Truth. It's a trivia game with a difference, as players don't necessarily have to know the answer, but just which ones are hopefully true, placing bets on where they think the right answers are. The game is up on Kickstarter now.
Aaaaaaaand we're back to Monday. Can't say that I really did a ton of stuff over the weekend. But that's alright. It's kinda what I wanted. I did make some banana bread, though. Had to use my new loaf pan I got the week before. But, seeing as it's Monday, we need to make your gaming tables look better so you're not just using old loaf pans as terrain.
Today in the Terrain Corner we have: 3D Printable Fantasy Dwarven Mine RPG Dungeon Tiles Up On Kickstarter, A5 Gamers' Notebook Grid and Hex Version Up On Kickstarter, and The Old Dungeon Entrance Terrain Up On Kickstarter.
Something sinister is lurking behind a tech giant company. You can't really put your finger on it, but you know it's there. As the launch of the latest smartphone comes closer, you just got to find out what's really happening. Will you be able to handle what you find out? That's for you to decide in Techlandia, a new suspense board game that's up on Kickstarter now.
"This is just one huge fiasco!" It's what you say when a rather convoluted plan starts going all to hell and things start figuratively and literally possibly start flying into or out of the windows and nothing works out. It's also describing when you and your friends get down to play a game of Fiasco. All sorts of convoluted plans go awry and you have to figure out a solution (if you can). A new edition of the classic game is up on Kickstarter now.
I like trains. *gets run over by a train*
De-mond the Moon Bear! *pause* "How did I get here?"
I baked you a pie!
Pie flavor! *guitar riff*
So, I might've seen the ASDFMovies a cooooouple of times. Now, the creators behind it are running a Kickstarter for a new card game called Muffin Time that's as weird and random as the internet videos.
It's Friday. Gateway to the weekend. What will you be getting up to? Gaming? I'm going to guess gaming. Me? I won't be gaming. That's fine. Gaming doesn't always happen every weekend. Instead, I'll be getting up to some cooking. What might I cook? I've not fully decided yet, as I've yet to make my grocery list (I go shopping Saturday mornings). But I'm thinking I might give a try to some Chocolate Blackout Cake, or maybe some Banana Bread. Perhaps I'll try some Chicken Parm. We'll see. Maybe I'll just order a pizza and laze around the apartment. It's a mystery! But, before we get to those treats, we've got some bite-sized morsels of the gaming variety to snack on.
Today on the platter we have: Supers Ulimited Superhero Minis Up On Kickstarter, Kraken Dice Releasing Mulholland Sunset Dice Today, and Metallice Dice Games Summer Sale Happening Now.
Sometimes, when an asteroid slams into a planet, it just wipes everything out. Sometimes, it only wipes most things out, and civilization can rebuild anew. That's what's happened to the planet Tah. Inside that asteroid, there were purple crystals of immense mystic power. Now, the 6 races still on Tah are looking to make the land theirs. That's the story in Tah Wars, a new dice tower board game coming soon to Kickstarter.
