Kickstart Monday: Spooky Graveyards and Need Investigation

It’s Kickstart Monday and it’s time to talk about two new crowd funded projects today. Today’s feature projects will dive into our love of tabletop miniature gaming.

Tabletop World’s Graveyard Terrain

For our first crowd funded project let’s take a look at this Kickstarter from Tabletop World’s graveyard terrain for 28-32mm modular resin terrain. This terrain looks beautifully gothic and I can see it fitting so many different tabletops. Indeed, I can see this terrain working for Malifaux, Warhammer, Batman Miniature Game, and many other games.

What I really like about this is that this is truly a modular set of terrain that you can back this project and receive physical copies of. You can pick up as much of it as you want, duplicates of certain pieces if you would like, or just a couple of pieces to supplement your gaming board. Whatever direction you want to take it, this terrain is certain to make your table look more stunning!

The Nightgaunt’s Nightmare – 15 Call of Cthulhu Miniatures

Keeping to this week’s theme, The Nightgaunt’s Nightmare project from Cosmondo features 15 cool figures that you can use to explore your new graveyard terrain. This Kickstarter Project features only the .STL files for these figures. This means you’ll need access to a 3D printer to take advantage of these models.

In the images provided, these models look pretty cool and would be great additions to your Call of Cthulhu RPG game or to add as additional background characters in any horror game (miniature or otherwise). Indeed I could see some of these figures getting used in even Zombie Apocalypse games!

The Best Modern War Gaming Terrain for Your Game Table

BMG in action

One of the biggest challenges for many players when getting started with tabletop miniature war gaming is to find the right terrain. Even as a seasoned war gamer I felt like it was a struggle to find good terrain for my games of Batman Miniature Game. In this article I dive into some of the best places I have found to pick up terrain for my modern war gaming needs.

Modern war game terrain can take several forms. You have to decide if you are gaming in the more urban areas of the world, residential suburbs, or even rural locations. The place in the world becomes a consideration as well. Playing a game set, for example, in the Middle East is much different than trying to play out a game on the streets of Gotham or New York City!

Let’s take a look at a few of the more popular game settings and see who makes great terrain for that environment.

It’s time to check out the show!

Hallertau – Uwe’s Latest Heavy Gaming Masterpiece

Hallertau

Uwe Rosenberg, one of the most well known designers of board games, has been at it again with his new game Hallertau. Published by Lookout Games we bought this game at the same time as we picked up another game from Uwe you may have heard of, A Feast for Odin.

What we were surprised was that the box was almost as heavy as the mighty 7 pound box that is A Feast for Odin. At nearly 6 pounds of game contents, Hallertau is no light weight game. Weight of the game boxes isn’t the only thing that makes these heavy games. There is a complexity of the rules and game interactions that are common to Uwe Rosenberg designed games.

However, is this really a masterpiece game? Let’s dig into the game and find out!

  • Players: 1-4
  • Playtime (with Setup): we find it around 90-180 minutes
  • Publisher: Lookout Games
  • Designer: Uwe Rosenberg

Kickstart Monday: Pretty Flowers Get Stomped by Monster Invasions

Monday, Monday, Monday!!! This week only. Featuring projects from Gamefound and Kickstarter game projects for a limited time only. Let’s take the time to check out these great projects!

Monster Invasion

Monster Invasion is a Gamefound project from Petersen Games. Where these projects are typically for a single game or product this one combines four games by four different designers!

This is also a different type of crowd funding projects. These games are all ready produced and ready to ship, so once the project is funded and funds collected these will ship. No big delays. Of course, that makes this more of a pre-order system. However, you do get a discount and are assured to be able to receive these games before they are available in retail.

All four games are available to try today on Tabletop Simulator so give them a try before you decide to back.

Gift of Tulips

Going from scary monsters we will turn to the lighter side of gaming with Gift of Tulips from Weird Giraffe Games. If you love bouquets of flowers, beautiful artwork, and games with cards then this will be a bright ray of sunshine for you!

At it’s core, Gift of Tulips is effectively a card drafting game. You will start with a hand of two cards, perform two actions on your turn, and before performing an action you will draw a card. Actions must be different that you play. You will either play a card that is added to your dispay of cards (your bouquet), give a card to another player (gifting them a flower), or add it to a stack that will be used for scoring during the other actions.

At it’s heart, there is simple mechanics with art that will make this game attractive as a great family game. We recommend you take a look at this Kickstarter game!
