Kickstart Mondays


A Little Bit of Roar   Recently updated !

It’s Kickstart Monday again and this time it’s going to be a little loud. That’s right, we are talking big, beasty dinosaurs in the Kickstarter by Pandasaurus Games for Dinosaur World and Dinosaur Island: Rawr and Write. Dinosaur World seems to be a new take on the genetically engineered dinosaur theme park game. It looks like with this Kickstarter there is lots of opportunity to have plenty of bling to your game with dinosaur meeples, metal coins and more.

Sandy Petersen has a new game releasing on Kickstarter as well. In Return to Planet Apocalypse this is both trying to fund a board game expansion and a role playing game. Sandy Petersen games are well known for oversized miniatures (just remember Cthulhu Wars) and this project has plenty of those. Couple that with a chance to back and obtain a copy of the original Planet Apocalypse game in it’s second printing there is plenty to offer in this Kickstarter.

Kickstart Monday 9/21/2020   Recently updated !

Well, I have a new game to talk about from Starling Games. You know, those guys that made a little game called Everdell. Flourish is a game of building a lovely garden where you will be drafting cards for between 1 and 7 players. The game duration is around 20 minutes per the Kickstarter page. On top of the cards, there are a number of cardboard tokens and standees that will become part of your game experience. The art of this game looks beautiful and this could be a great game to kick off a game day or be used as a filler between games.

For those of you who are into Dungeons and Dragons, here is a great Kickstarter by The Dice Dungeons Team that should help streamline your games. Condition Coins is exactly what it says it is. Little round metal discs that you can place around your miniatures bases that indicate the various status conditions that your characters might be affected by such as Poisoned, Paralyzed, and Stunned. This is a particularly great addition to your games if you utilize a lot of battle grids for combat scenarios. Never forget that a monster was stunned after resolving it’s attack or that a PC needed a save against poison. These tokens help with the visualization so that these status effects just don’t become overlooked.

Kickstart Monday – 9/14/2020

I have a couple of new Kickstarters that I hope you guys want to check out. Let’s start with Asian Adventures which will get those of you excited with 3D printers. This auction will set you up with some great Asian terrain pieces that would be great for a Bushido game or any game featuring Far East adventures or battles.

Sticking on 3D printing for our second one. This time is some great fantasy cottages. Mystic Realm’s cottage looks like the kind of little cottage that might come out of a Disney film or your favorite Grimm fairy tale. I think these work also for the rustic cottage in a more modern rural setting as well. Tons of versatility with these.

Kickstart Monday – 9/7/2020

This started as a thing that I was doing on our Facebook Group WiscoDice, but I am moving to the blog so it’s a little easier to read and follow. The idea, every Monday I would find two Kickstarter projects that I am interested in, or that I think our fans would be interested in and provide a little background.

So let’s first dive into the Wyrmwood Modular Gaming Table Kickstarter. If you haven’t heard of Wyrmwood before, these guys build amazing tables. It might be a 9 month wait to receive your table, but the quality is on the top end of the market for board game tables. This Kickstarter will set you up with their most flexible table option, and who doesn’t want an amazing table. Their pledge levels are a bit confusing, and right now you are going to have to wait until 2022 to get your table, but check it out!

Mercardo de Lisboa is a board game Kickstarter by Eagle Games with big name designers Julián Pombo and Vital Lacerda. Be ready for a a game that has some real heft to it, but is coming in a smaller package. At $34 for the English version, plus shipping, it’s one of the less expensive board game Kickstarters that you will find me recommending.
