Kickstart Monday: Crossroads Inn and Weather Machine

Welcome to Kickstart Monday!!!! This is the next installment in our regular blog series where we focus on two or more crowdfunding projects in the tabletop gaming industry. This week we have a couple of very interesting-looking board games.

Weather Machine

Weather Machine from Eagle-Gryphon Games is the latest game from Vital Lacerda and Ian O’Toole. This game promises to be another complex masterpiece. For 1-4 players and a 2-3 hour playtime, you will need to be ready for a real brain crunch when you play. Yet, this game has all of the looks of another great game from these designers.

In the game, you take on the roles of players working for a master scientist who is creating a weather machine that will control the weather. In your turn, you will take action to adjust the rainfall, snow, prevent extreme weather, and more through the game to win. There will be plenty of opportunities to correct the out-of-control weather conditions that this machine’s weather tampering has created. If you can master the machine then you will be the winner!

If you love very complex strategy games with intertwined rules then we suggest you check out Weather Machine from Eagle-Gryphon Games!

Crossroads Inn

Crossroads Inn from Klabeter lets players create their own fantasy tavern from the ground up. Described as a strategic economic game, it’s based on the digital version of the game. For 2-4 players with somewhere around 90-120 minutes of time to play this game looks to be one that can make it to the table on shorter game nights.

The ultimate goal is to score enough points to win. You will do so by improving your reputation, adding tiles to your in that represent furnishings and satisfying guests that come to visit. Add an additional layer of complexity by adding kingdom cards that award bonuses if you build and design your Inn in a specific way indicated on the card.

If you like an economic game that is set in a fantasy setting then you should check out Crossroads Inn: The Board Game from Klabeter.

Kickstart Monday: Too Many Bones go to the Next Level With Goblin Gummies

Welcome to Kickstart Monday!!! Fresh off of Gameholecon in Madison, Wisconsin we are back at it today featuring two amazing projects in tabletop gaming. After all, that’s what we do on #KickstartMonday.

Too Many Bones: Unbreakable

Too Many Bones: Unbreakable from Chip Theory Games is the latest expansion to the ever popular Too Many Bones game. In the game, you play as Gearlocs taking on adventures in a very innovative campaign style RPG experience. Players must overcome various encounters. Some of them are role playing encounters where you are given some options and you must choose what seems to makes the most sense for your character. Others are combat, where your character becomes a stack of poker chips and encounters other stacks of chips that represent the monsters. Each chip has amazing art stickers of what you are encountering on the chips.

In Unbreakable, players of the game will receive new Gearlocs to play, new tyrants to overcome, and new encounters and adventures to go on. Basically, more of the things that make the game so popular. You will be able to now take your battles to the new lava battle mat. This means you better make sure your Gearloc is ready for fiery battles!

If you like adventure games, beautiful art, and an immersive campaign world then you should check out Too Many Bones: Unbreakable from Chip Theory Games! Head over to Gamefound and back this one today.

Edible Gummy Minis for Tabletop Games

Edible Gummy Minis for Tabletop Games is from Crawlspaces and Critters and is a very unique project. Your character delves the dungeon, encounters a hoard of goblins. The dungeon master places these gummies on bottle caps on the battle mat. They move about, attacking your character. However, you dash forward taking one down. The DM hands you your reward. A tasty gummy goblin that you get to eat! That’s the idea with this Kickstarter project.

If that didn’t sound great enough, then you can be a part of this to donate these amazing gummies to the Children’s Miracle Network of Hospitals. There is one thing that I am so proud of with the gaming community, it is the amount of charity work and donations so many of us have been a part of. This Kickstarter project is no exception.

I personally had an opportunity to try these gummies at Gameholecon this past weekend. I have to say, these are some of the best tasting gummies I have ever had. The flavors are bright and exactly what you would expect. Grape and pineapple in the ones we tried were flavorful and delicious. The energy from the booth and the excitement for this product really has us excited for these crazy gummy treats.

If you love gummies, have children at your gaming table, or want to donate to the Children’s Miracle Network of Hospitals then please take a look at this project and give it your support!

Kickstart Monday: Going Beyond the Void with Mythical Winds

Welcome to Kickstart Monday!!!! This is our weekly, or well mostly weekly, blog series where we feature two or more crowdfunding projects running on platforms such as Kickstarter, Gamefound, Indigogo, and others. These crowdfunding projects always are orientated around tabletop gaming. Often games, but also accessories, game room furniture, and other projects that catch our eye. Let’s take a look at this week’s featured projects!

Fractal: Beyond the Void

Fractal: Beyond the Void from Bored Game Ink is a 4x sci fi strategy game leveraging a legacy campaign setting. While this game claims to give you that full 4x experience faster, it’s play time is estimated at 30 minutes per player. It plays 1-4 players, so assume anything form 30-120 minutes plus set up and tear down for your game play.

Like most of these games, you will play as the plucky emerging empire in the solar system only to find other nations also rising at roughly the same time. To pull this off, there are three boxes to this game. To start with is the core game box. If you just want to play the game, not worry about legacy, and a pile of miniatures then this is the place to go.

Of course, you can take that up a notch and pick up the campaign box. This introduces a layered, storied legacy campaign that you can play out. Of course, plenty of new factions in this add on, more miniatures, and more game to explore. Taking the 4X game to the legacy gaming environment is unique, and different for this genre.

Of course, if you want a more rich 2-3 player game you can pick up the Automata expansion as an add-on. This will add all of the components you will need to enrich games at lower player counts by automating up to two players.

Of course, if you love delving into rich sci fi universes, legacy games, and tons of miniatures then you should check out Fractal: Beyond the Void.

Mythwind

Mythwind from OOMM Games is a co0perative game for 1-4 players that should play in 30 minutes to an hour typically. This will make Mythwind a great filler game for your game nights, or an even better game for families.

When you play Mythwind, each round in the game is the equivalent of one day in the games unique world. You will work collaboratively to build and grow your town. Take on the role of an asymetric character who has a specific skill set that you can utilize to increase the success of your town.

Mythwind uses what they call is a “Persistent World”. Effectively what that means, and it’s pretty exciting, is that your previous plays impact the set up, components, and game play of future games. This might be adding cards to decks, secret envelopes, and other tweeks to the game over the course of the play.

Since you are exploring and unlocking content through the course of game play you may find yourself playing several games during game night. If this excites you, then you should check out Mythwind!

We have had our celebrations for July 4th here in the US, but that hasn’t slowed us down on taking a look at the latest crowdfunded gaming projects. It’s that time for another Kickstart Monday so let’s take a look at these two games that are sure to please.

Wild Assent – Lavon Rising from Lazy Squire Games is the most recent big game project to come to Gamefound. This is a reprint of the original game with all of the original exclusives that went with the original campaign. There will be added expansions as well that you can add to this game.

In the game, you will play a cooperative RPG style board game where you will play the game over multiple sessions discovering a deep narrative. Unlock the stories with beautifully modeled figures and lovely game board. You will play as a seeker who will have special and unique abilities that make each one different. You will have opportunities to recruit workers, discover locations, and find creatures. Your goal will be to locate and capture these creatures and return them for gold and glory.

If you love cooperative games that will give you plenty to discover over multiple sessions as your character grows in power then you should check out this project on Gamefound.

Potion Panic

Potion Panic from Rocket House Games will have you crafting magical concoctions and having a blast! You will have potion cards that you will play face down in front of you. At points during the game you will want to take the brew action, to set match your potions against an available recipe card.

Other actions include the smash action where you can trigger the ability of one of your face down potions and then it is discarded. You can also, as an action, place a potion card face down in front of you.

This game will provide a nice, lighter game for the table that will not only be family friendly, but also fun. Not to mention, you can back this project for just $3 US to have your own print and play copy. Something that not many of these projects offer.

You will take on the role of a royal emissary who is charged with the defense of the land.
