Kickstart Monday: Mad Kings and the Peasants they Rule Over

Another week, another pair of Kickstarter projects!

Castles of the Mad King Ludwig Collector’s Edition

The recent Kickstarter project for Castles of the Mad King Ludwig Collector’s Edition certainly caught our eye. It’s a classic game that’s going to add a bit more content in the form of expansions, tricked out pieces, and updated art. If you don’t have this game, or are the mega fan, then this game is sure to be a hit on your table.

Bloody Peasants

Bloody Peasants from Midlam Miniatures will set up your fantasy tabletops with very cool medieval age fantasy farmers. After all of the games of Warhammer, with the buildings, fields, and other structures on the table over the years never did I have any wildlife or peasants to help add to that theme. These models will help populate your gaming tables whether that’s for a miniature game or your role playing game!

Conesy’s Top 10 Favorite Board Games of All Time

I was chatting with a friend the other day when I was asked what are my top 5 board games. I thought about it for a bit, but then wasn’t really able to answer it right then. So I sat down, looked at my collection on BoardGameGeek, and started to make some tough decisions.

I am sure this list will flux a bit over the years. I am sure sometime in the future I will end up putting out a new top 10 list for this very subject. It’s hard to predict with the number of games that are coming out which games I will still be in love with and which games will fall a bit out of favor.

Not all of these games are in print anymore, but all of these games are very good.

Here’s Conesy’s top 10 favorite board games of all time. Enjoy

Terra Mystica via Board Game Arena

On this week’s episode of the Diary, I dive into my recent experiences with organizing and participating in virtual, online gaming events. These events are a lot of fun. While no replacement for in person gaming, a little organization can make for a very fun filled day.

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.
