Kickstart Monday: Your Dice Empowered by Thrones

Welcome to Kickstart Monday!!!! If you are new to #KickstartMonday then we tip our hats to you. We dive into crowdfunding applications like Kickstarter and Gamefound to find two or more crowdfunded tabletop gaming projects that we think you should know about. You’ll find board games, gaming accessories, gaming furniture, RPGs, dice, miniatures, and more on #KickstartMonday.

On this week’s #KickstartMonday we dive into a very dice-themed week. Let’s dive into this week’s projects!

Reliquaries: Hand Painted Dice Thrones by Dwarven Forge

Reliquaries: Hand Painted Dice Thrones by Dwarven Forge is a unique project featuring cool pedestals to give your dice the proper respect that they need. We have all had dice that just will not roll well, but what about rewarding those dice with the special treatment that they deserve. Each of these reliquaries is hand-sculpted and painted with an eye to detail.

So besides being places of honor for your dice you can actually put these to good use. Leverage them for tracking ability stats, damage, skill modifiers, or any number of things you might need markers for in your games.

While I feel that Dwarven Forge markets these a bit more to the RPG market, I can see myself using these to track the turn in a game of Warhammer Fantasy Battles, mark the damage taken on a miniature in battle, or track any number of effects.

If you are like us and love dice then you want to give your dice the respect that they deserve. Don’t jail your dice. Give them the place of honor that they deserve.

Handcrafted RPG Character Cat’s Eye Gemstone Dice

These handcrafted RPG character cat’s eye gemstone dice from Diving Hippo Studios is unique in a market filled with polyhedral dice. Each dice features a symbol that represents one of the 12 most popular character classes in Dungeons and Dragons. This really lets you have a unique set of dice that really represents your character.

The dice are made from Cat’s Eye which is a semi-transparent gemstone. The dice are hand-carved. Since they are gemstone they are heavier, not quite the weight of metal dice but weighty still. Though the carving process won’t have quite the same perfection as the sides of manufactured dice, it does mean that these dice will be truly unique and made just for you.

If you love to own unique dice, have a player character that’s truly special, or a class that you love to play then pick up a set of very unique dice then this is going to likely be the set you have always been wanting.

Board Game Brunch: Mixing Up Potions for Extra Life

This week’s Board Game Brunch had us finishing up our Extra Life 2021 Campaign by mixing up some potions. We played Potion Explosion on Board Game Arena and ate Bubbling BLT Dip with a Color Changing Cocktail.

Kickstart Monday: Big Tanks You can Drive Through Villages

Welcome to Kickstart Monday!!!! This is our weekly blog series that covers two or more crowdfunded projects in the tabletop gaming industry. On this week’s #KickstartMonday we dive into our love of games like Bolt Action with these projects that are sure to supplement those types of games. Of course, you might want to take a look at those buildings in the second project for your fantasy games as well!

The Unknown Tanker

The Unknown Tanker from Night Sky Miniatures promises to provide the backer with STL files for printing Russian and Finnish armored vehicles including tanks for your WW2 battles. These STL’s are scaled for 1/56 scale vehicles (roughly 28mm). These are perfect for games that use that scale figure such as Warlord Games Bolt Action.

While these tanks are themed around the Finnish and Russian battles in the war, you could easily make these part of an army you are building for either faction. The sculpts are clean, well detailed, and should print well on an FDM or resin printer.

If you just can’t get enough tanks for your WW2 games or collections, then this campaign will let you print as many of them as you want.

MDF Laser Cut Half Timbered Houses for Wargames

Every table needs terrain. This project will let you create those European or fantasy tables with towns for your games. This project features MDF Laser Cut Half Timbered Houses for those Wargames produced by Products for Wargamers. These buildings will make for great rural villages, farms, and small towns.

One could imagine their tanks rolling into a rural French village with a table featuring several of these buildings. Of course, I also think of my Dungeons and Dragons game having adventures in and around a town. Perhaps defending the town from a terrifying monster. There is something about amazing 3D terrain that helps amplify any game.

Whether you are using this terrain for a fantasy game, WW2 gaming, or something else we are sure that you will enjoy looking at these great buildings on your tabletop. If you are sure, then you should consider backing this project.
