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!
Eclipse (Or Eclipse: New Dawn For The Galaxy) is a great game that is my choice of massive 4X game. Released in 2011, many players called it ‘Twilight Imperium lite’ but that is both true and unfair. Currently on Kickstarter, Eclipse: Second Dawn is the streamlined and improved second edition, and it looks amazing.
Snowdonia is a game I have heard of, but never actually played. By all accounts, it is a worker placement game that while a little on the heavier side is great for all levels of player. Currently on Kickstarter, you can get a deluxe master set with everything ever printed for the game, including promos!
In honour of the ‘Hiest’ Blatherings last week, news on a new Kickstarter that looks great. While Android: Netrunner is coming to a close, the daunting task of teaching new players is real and one of the reasons I stopped playing. One Last Job looks to capture a lot of the ‘sweatiness’ I love about Android: Netrunner, but contained in one single deck. This could be a ‘light’ replacement for a loved game!
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.
