Re: What KICKSTARTER(S) are you BACKING and WHY?

I backed ZOMBIES RUN as well. I need something to motivate moving my fat ass around. Flesh eating zombie hordes should do nicely.

Miskatonic School for Girls.

I'm keeping an eye on this. Amusing premise, looks great, but no rules yet. (Sorry guys, it's a deckbuilder, but with a unique mechanism.)

At the moment I don't own a deckbuilder that gets played, just the original Dominion which I'd gladly sell trade. Basically, I've yet to find one that seems compelling enough to buy.

Dude, quit getting my hopes up. People on Kickstarter actually print games. From now on if you're going to do that tap your nose or something.

Re: What KICKSTARTER(S) are you BACKING and WHY?

I'm on a few:
Dice Age: I do actually like this game, there is actually a game there, but a very strange one involving learning special powers of the symbols. What happens is that you learn that certain dice tend to beat other dice, and there is a risk/reward thing going as to whether you reroll an old die or risk adding a new one. I think it is at least a deeper game there than people are giving it credit for.

Dark Horse: I adore Shadow Wars, although it wants for more development. And Dark Horse looks like a nice western Settlers sort of game.

Imperial Crusade Armada: Spaceship minis game on plastic cards. You indicate damage and such by marking on the card, so there is no additional space needed for bookeeping. The rules themselves seem JUST at the correct weight for this sort of thing.

Empire of the Void: Looks a bit like Ascending Empires in that turns are very basic and potentially quick.

Carnival: Looks cute.

Flash Point: A game I already own, but I love the game enough to want the bits upgrade. It is a SUPERB game that feels like a classic Parker/MB co-op game.

Yeah, I'm in on this, too. A great co-op and the new artwork looks fantastic.

I also picked up the filler Get Bit from a recent Kickstarter campaign, and I'll be going in on D-Day Dice when that starts up soon.

Re: What KICKSTARTER(S) are you BACKING and WHY?

Sentinels of the Multiverse - Rook City Expansion! is now running. Given the reviews, cheap international shipping, and getting both promos, I'm tempted.

These might also be of interest:-
Dragonmage Warfare™ looks interesting, but the prototype art and high goal will probably cause it to fail. I'll wait to read more.

Castle Dash looks fun. I'll probably pledge for this one soon.

Kings of Combat: Gladiatorial Tournament looks pretty sweet, despite being roll and move. Again, I'm probably in for this, being a fan of gladiatorial/melee games. One TOSser has already dismissed it as an Ameritrash roll and move, because the two are synonymous right?

Obviously you need to be putting your 2nd graders to work, Steve.
