Kickstart Monday: Roleplaying, Card, or Dice Game, its Your Choice

Welcome to Kickstart Monday! Kickstart Monday is our weekly series where we feature two or more crowdfunded projects in the tabletop gaming industry. This week, we are looking at two games that cater to a variety of play styles.

Dice Trucking

Dice Trucking is a Print and Play game by Derik Duley. In this game you construct and send a space transport on peril filled runs. Turns are simultaneous, which means minimal downtime for players. Throughout the game, you work on building and repairing your ship and racing across space to deliver cargo and earn credits. At $3 USD to back, this looks to be a fun filler game to add to your collection.

Ultimate Dungeon Showdown

The second game this week has both a Roleplaying and Card Game version. Check out the Ultimate Dungeon Showdown by Zombie Orpheus. In both versions you are recruiting an adventuring party and battling for the title of Ultimate Dungeon Champion. Back either the card game, roleplaying game, or both, depending on your interest. Either way you get an adventure for you and your friends as well as options for some fun and unique add-ons.

Kickstart Monday: Majestic Mountains Are Ready for Exploration

Welcome to Kickstart Monday! Kickstart Monday is our weekly series where we feature two or more crowdfunded projects in the tabletop gaming industry. This week, we are looking at two games that feature mountain fairing fantasy races.

Fall of the Mountain King

Fall of the Mountain King from Burnt Island Games features the prequal game to their popular In the Hall of the Mountain King game. In this game you will collect and build a tableau of ancestry cards that will add to your in game actions. This will ultimately lead to an interesting territory control game on the game board.

This is a complete stand alone game. Like many of these sequel/expansion projects there are options to get the original game in the series. If you enjoy playing the bad guys, like games that have euro mechanics, and like games that feature great player interaction then these games are likely to delight you.

Dwar7s Winter & The Lost Tribes

Dwar7s Winter & The Lost Tribes is the latest game and expansion to the popular Dwar7s games from Vesuvius Media Ltd. While these games boast their unique cartoonish art style that makes them family friendly, there is plenty of game in the boxes.

In Dwar7s Winter, you will pick up in the fall and play more of a tower defense game, something unique for the series. You will build squads, man the walls, and defend the outpost from marauding monsters.

For the Dwar7s: The Lost Tribes expansion adds ogres, crystal dwarfs, and half-bloods. With more content for this great game, and more figures, this alone should make this Kickstarter popular. This particular expansion is a Kickstarter exclusive so make sure you back now to get your copy.

Board Game Brunch: Ganymede Game Box

In 2019, I attended my first GenCon. Ganymede was a game I signed up to play after doing some brief online research. During our first game we went online and secured a copy.

Board Game Brunch: Ganymede Game Setup

In the game you are recruiting settlers from Earth to travel to Mars and then Ganymede. Today we played with the Moon expansion. This expansion adds additional opportunities to recruit advisors, which provide additional bonuses and help to achieve your goal. Check out our full review of the base game: http://wiscodice.com/ganymede-board-game-review/

Board Game Brunch: Ganymede Mid-Game State

My company just couldn’t get into a rhythm and was left in the dust as my husband pushed his company. I may have lost hard in today’s game, but that won’t deter me from playing this again.

Board Game Brunch: Dog Enjoying Ganymede

Our dog had to see what was going on, we were having so much fun.

Board Game Brunch: French Toast and Mimosas

For brunch we ate French toast. To launch the entrée out of this world, we made it with Cinnamon Crunch bread and topped it with summer flavors. Toppings included real whipped cream, fresh strawberries, and of course our favorite maple syrup. This Cinnamon Crunch Bread looks complicated, but was one of the easier breads I’ve made. You can find the recipe here: https://sallysbakingaddiction.com/cinnamon-crunch-bread/#tasty-recipes-95266-jump-target
