Crowd Funding

Here is all the Crowdfunding stuff I find interesting and am looking at backing personally.

If the page is quiet, it’s not that I’m not interested – it’s that my wallet is on life support!

Watching the Blood on the Clocktower

I love social deduction games. Get a group of people together, and it can be a great way to end a night. Australian designer Steven Medway and the team from the Pandemonium Institute seem to have similar ideas and has made Blood on the Clocktower with mechanics to specifically address some common social deduction negatives.

More Monikers! And a Big Box!

Monikers Box

Monikers is one of those fun party games that you might have trouble convincing people to play, but once a couple of people are up everyone will jump in on. And now, more Monikers shenanigans is available on Kickstarter – with a bigger box to hold it all!

Space Goat Productions Update – from a Lynnvander perspective

So Space Goat Productions has not been a good place to talk about for a while now. Recently a Designer Diary from Lynnvnader designer Tommy Gofton gives a bit more of an insight into the day to day business realities of working with Space Goat. This isn’t only informative for Terminator and Evil Dead 2 backers, but also for people interested in how game companies work together – both ideally, and not.

Posthuman Saga is live on Kickstarter

Posthuman Saga Box Art

Posthuman is a game that came my way as a donation, and I really enjoy it. Gamewise, it’s a complicated set of rules and interactions, but narratively it’s a great seed for an amazing world. Now, this world is expanding as Posthuman Saga goes live on Kickstarter.

Hellboy is back! Well, in Board Game form.

Hellboy Box Art

I am with Guillermo del Toro – Rob Pearlman IS Hellboy. That said, I can’t wait for the new Hellboy movie to come out – different doesn’t mean bad after all! But in the meantime, Mantic Games has released a gorgeous looking board game on Kickstarter to help tide over the Hellboy cravings!
