Kickstart Monday: These Goblins Might Need a Minty Fresh Game

Scouring crowdsourcing platforms for this weeks games was an interesting challenge. It seems that this point in January is a bit lighter on projects that caught my eye, but hopefully these two projects will will make you feel minty fresh.

Return to the Court of the Goblin King

Effincool Miniatures is looking to license The Court of the Goblin King which was originally from Flytrap Factory in New Zealand. This project, the Return to the Court of the Goblin King, is a classic Kickstarter that features a company that needs funding for things like tooling, contracting a studio painter, and paying for the licensing. To me, this is what crowdfunding is all about.

The models themselves are takes on classic Scandanavian and Germanic folklore of goblins. Featuring a Goblin King on throne and various other golbins that become the goblin court. On top of that, if you back at the right level you have the chance to pick up a massive resin Hill Giant, a cave troll captive, and a number of cool stretch goal models.

Mint Bid

Mint Bid from Poketto is the latest in these Mint games to release. Each game in the series features a small metal tin that resembles those fresh mint tins. We actually own the other games in this series. Each game is very unique and would be great if you need something small to travel and play.

Mint Bid looks to feature you bidding for various locations to have a chance to rebuild the city after a super hero disaster. You may find yourself working with a partner to outbid the other team, but beware, each palyer is working to win the game on their own.

What You Need to Select that Perfect Board Game Table

Our Jasper Gaming Table from BoardGameTables.com

Picking that perfect board game table is really hard to do. About a year ago my wife and I found ourselves doing just that. We had committed to buying our first dedicated table for gaming. We debated a number of decision points and went back and forth for quite some time until we finally decided upon our final choice.

I hope to help provide some thoughts on what you will want to consider to pick up that perfect game table.

Kickstart Monday: Gaming Cocktails with Burly Norse Footballers

Thank you for checking out this week’s Kickstart Monday. Since I started this series on our Facebook Group I have come to look forward to scouring Kickstarter for new gaming related products and games every week. For this week I have another two cool looking projects that I wanted to point out.

Mystic Libations: Critical Cocktails

Mystic Libations is brought to you by creators Trader Brandon and Todd Stashwick. Backers of this Kickstarter project will receive a book with over 100 cocktail recipes.

Since we are from Wisconsin having cocktails seems very natural at the gaming table. Having themed ones might just even help with some of the immersion into a specific game. When I started playing Pandemic Legacy Season 0 and we were playing spies I immediately made a vodka martini – shaken, not stirred – just to get into the game a bit more. Little things like this can really aid players feel the setting of the game while adding something fun that they can all enjoy.

The Hammers of Valhalla – Norse Fantasy Football Team

The Hammers of Valhalla provides an excellent alternative for your Norse Blood Bowl team. This project is from Anthony J. Fennell who is owner of the Patriot Printing Southern Arizona. This company makes a number of alternative 3D printed models for a number of games including Blood Bowl and Star Wars: Legion.

This Kickstarter project will provide backers with quality 3D printed resin models. They don’t waste time on fancy artwork packaging, but take care to shrink wrap and carefully package all models for shipping. If you need a new Blood Bowl team for the new season, this is a great project to look at backing.
