Kickstart Monday: Ragnorock and the Eternal Palace

It’s Monday. It’s time to dive into crowdfunding. Here are a couple of treasures we think you might be interested in.

Ragnorocks

Ragnorocks from Grey Fox Games and designed by Gordon Hamilton (you know, that same guy that designed Santorini) will provide a unique game play experience for 1-2 players. On your turn you will move one of your viking figures on the board and place a runestone. You will have the option to play myth cards that may affect your viking’s ability to do things or give you options on placement of the runestone you normally wouldn’t have. Score the most points and you win!

This abstract game looks to be a real treat, much like Santorini is. If you are in need of a good two player game and checkers and chess have been played out then this might be the game for you.

Eternal Palace

Eternal Palace from Alley Cat Games features a dice placement (dice represent your workers) game with beautiful artwork and intriguing Euro style mechanics. Start your turn by rolling your dice behind a screen. On your turn you will be able to place your dice onto the game board. Beware as you don’t know what your opponents rolled. Action spots on the board may require a 3 or greater or a 5 on the dice to use. Since you don’t know what your opponents rolled you could gamble and take a more needed action only to find out that they did roll that 5 on the one dice they had of that type.

The game boasts that the main game will have over 400 components. If dice placement, tons of components, and player interaction sound great then hop over and back this project.

Leveraging the General Objective Cards To Optimize Your Joker Crew

Arkham Asylum Joker

If you are like me, then you enjoy winning. The key to that in Batman Miniature Game Third Edition is the objective deck. If you are one of those people, then this is the right spot. We’ll work on leveraging the general objective cards to optimize your Joker crew.

One of the challenges that players face with Batman Miniature Game Third Edition is what cards to include in their objective deck. Between the crew specific cards, the general cards, and the character unique cards it can be overwhelming to determine what cards work for you.

Add in the complexity of having to then analyze your crew build to so that you can complete those objective cards just tosses another challenge into the mix. In order to win consistently in this game I find that you need to score 20+ points in the game. With Joker I actually find that I need to be in the 25+ points range.

Let’s take a look at the general card deck and see what makes sense to take.

Conesy’s Diary: Episode 48 Breaking Down How to Paint Red for Miniatures

Dwarf Hammerers with Red Gloves

Painting red on miniatures can be a real challenge for most of us. On this episode of the diary, I break down some of my approach to painting red. With a little planning, you too can paint red with confidence.

I mentioned on the show this article I did a while back for Captain Marvel (Marvel Crisis Protocol). Here’s the link to the article:

Kickstart Monday: The Dark Knight and Epic Expansions

Another big week for crowdsourcing. I have three projects again this week. There’s are so many big projects on Kickstarter currently that I feel that I had to include a bonus project for this week and still couldn’t include everything I wanted to.

Batman: The Dark Knight Returns

Cryptozoic Entertainment is releasing it’s take on the Frank Miller Batman in their project Batman: The Dark Knight Returns – The Game. This game can be played either as a stand alone missions or as a campaign game with each mission’s results impacting the next. The game is designed as a solo play experience. There will be four scenarios (books) that you will be able to play through.

During the game, you will need to collect clues that will advance the mission. Be aware though, that the doomsday clock persists over all of the scenarios and you can be assured that in campaign mode if this is ignored to much it will only be bad things for Batman. However, you can visit the Batcave to unlock vehicles, interact with aids like Carrie Kelly Robin and Jim Gordon for extra help, and you will have plenty of gadgets to help the worlds greatest, but older, detective.

Root: The Marauder Expansion

Because we can’t get enough cute little forest critters duking it out for forest dominance, Leder Games has another expansion just for you. Root: The Marauder Expansion will give you two more factions to choose from. The Keepers in Iron (badgers) and the Lord of the Hundreds (rats) will add new asymmetric play styles to your games of Root. Add in the Hirelings, and there’s quite a bit of new content that you can add into your games.

Marauders is aimed at improving two player game play within the Root game system. I feel like I exhausted the game play available from the core box for two players and have shelved the game until I can play it with others. This expansion just might the answer for us to take it back off the shelf and give it a play with new content.

Paladins of the West Kingdom: City of Crowns

Paladins of the West Kingdom

Paladins of the West Kingdom is one of my favorite games. It’s satisfyingly complex, challenging decisions, and really solid game play. It’s no surprise that it’s receiving an expansion. Garphill Games are bringing us City of Crowns to add additional flavor to our games of Paladins.

Featuring an expansion to the main board on the right hand side, you will have new actions including the Muster and Negotiate actions. These actions will have their own cards and will allow revealing more Townsfolk and Outsiders to the board each round. In addition, you will have the new Diplomacy attribute to manage. Finally, updated solo play rules for those of you who love or need that experience to play games like these.

Getting the Best Out Of Your Jasper Gaming Table

The Jasper Gaming Table from BoardGameTables.com

It was a little over a year ago when my wife and I decided we were going to purchase our first tabletop gaming table. With a market full of options, there were a number of things to consider. Ultimately, we purchased the Jasper Gaming Table from BoardGameTables.com. With over a year of use I feel it’s a good time to give it a review
