Kickstart Monday: The Old Ones Wake for Ragnarok

It’s the start of the work week again. Time for a little Monday morning distraction with a couple of crowd funding projects to distract you.

AuZtralia Big Box + Expansions

From the Kickstarter Page

SchilMil Games with partnership with designer Martin Wallace are working on expanding the AuZtralia game with a big box and two new expansions. The mythos had previously taken over the world, but humanity has pushed them back to Australia. Now Cthulhu and the other great old ones fight back against humanity to desperately cling to their hold on Earth.

The base game features an exploration of Australia as you try to settle it from your beach head. Build military units, build farms, and collect resources. Combat with the old ones is card driven with different types of units being better against different types of monsters. Players play as different factions trying to retake (and make a profit) on Australia. Can you muster what it takes to overcome the last of the Old Ones?

On top of the big box for storage, the Revenge of the Old Ones expansion enables a player to take control of the old ones to make for a one vs. many play experience. Meanwhile, the TaZmania expansion gives players some alternate maps that scale the game down better for a 2-3 player experience.

Mythic Battles: Ragnarok

From Monolith Board Games comes another epic game with loads of figures, cards, and other components in Mythic Battles: Ragnarock. Based on the same Mythic Battles engine from Mythic Battles: Pantheon, in this game you will play out the epic Norse mythology of Ragnorok with various Norse gods and their foes.

What’s for sure to be included in this project are a plethora of well sculpted plastic figurines. What’s even cooler is that they are diving into Norse mythology. If the original Greek mythos wasn’t your thing from the Pantheon game then this could be more your visual style.

If this kind of thing sounds like fun, then check out Mythic Battles: Ragnarok.

Archona Games has published what looks like a great game with Magna Roma. In the game you have been summoned by the Emperor of Rome to build it’s great expansion. During the game you will produce resources, place tiles, and build your city to be better than your opponents.

The game features a combination of tiles, miniatures, coins, a other components that make you feel like you have dove into ancient Rome. From what’s shown on the Kickstarter page this game looks like it really takes it’s theme into what should be a very immersive experience with great mechanics that are unique enough for it to make a spot in your game collection.

Printed Game Components

spielmaterial.de has launched another project to add more game components to their available products. There are 50 new designs that will be produced if the project is successful. These are wooden game components will printed designs on them. So not only are the cool shapes, but the art work carries over so that each token seems more representative of what it is in game. These kind of accessories, while not necessary, really help aid the immersion factor.

Available as well are the original tokens that they produced previously. If you are looking to add a collection of unique game components to your board gaming experience this project may have you covered.
