Kickstart Monday: Doomensions and Letters of Marque

Welcome to Kickstart Monday!!!! This is our weekly series featuring 2 or more crowdfunding projects in the tabletop gaming industry. I scour over platforms like KickstarterGamefound, and Indigogo to find projects that interest me. People would ask me what I think is worth backing since I was providing these recommendations already. So why not share my thoughts with a weekly blog about projects that interest me.

Stay informed when new Kickstart Monday projects come out by following us on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter and following the #KickstartMonday hashtag.

This week on Kickstart Monday I couldn’t help but be excited about the new project Doomensions: Pop-Up Mystery Manor and AEG’s Expansion to Dead Reckoning, Letters of Marque. With that, let’s dive into it!

Doomensions: Pop-Up Mystery Manor

Doomensions: Pop-Up Mystery Manor from Curious Correspondence features a 3D take on the escape room at home game experience. This eight-room pop-up experience is certainly a different take on the escape room game genre. Designed for 1-4 players it promises between 5-10 hours of playtime.

In addition to the pop-up mystery manor, you will have clippings, handouts, and various other materials in the game. Throughout the game, you and the other players will be taking on the role of paranormal investigators attempting to uncover what might haunt the mystery manor.

If you love escape room games but are looking for something to pop-up with more table presence and give you a new challenge then you should definitely check out this project.

Dead Reckoning: Letters of Marque

Dead Reckoning Letters of Marque from AEG is the next expansion to the very popular Dead Reckoning game. In the original game, Dead Reckoning is a game of exploration, discovery, and battle between players for a series of islands in an area similar to the Caribbean. For 1-4 players, this game utilizes the card crafting mechanic made popular in Mystic Vale. This mechanic allows players to customize their crew as they gain experience and journey on their discovery.

In addition, this game features a saga system. This allows players to play through the saga components unlocking various new mechanics as they organically just play the game. Letters of Marque, the third expansion to the game, is also a saga expansion. While there are some small things it adds, the biggest thing is it brings more saga content. Where the saga content differs from say a Legacy game is that you are never permanently destroying or changing components. This means you can always reset things back to the original state if players so choose.

If you like narrative games or are interested in more content for one of the best pirate games on the market then you should consider backing this project.

The Best New Board Game Releases for your 2020 Holiday Shopping

It’s the time of the year to be festive. With many of us, we are looking at our favorite online retailers this year to purchase and possibly ship gifts to our friends and loved ones. With so many games out there, WiscoDice is here to provide some guidance as to what to buy your board gaming friends.

It’s worth noting that we have not played any of these titles. These are games that we are excited about ourselves. After reading reviews, watching game play, and doing enough research to make ourselves a little jolly, this is the list that we settled on.

For this list, we have looked at the top games that have either just released or are expected to release before the Christmas (December 25th) holiday. The list will feature both stand alone board games as well as expansions to popular games. Gamers can be very difficult to buy for. Anything that has just released going into the holiday season is something your gamer just might not have in their collections yet!

I hope you are excited for our holiday board game top 10 shopping list!!!
