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

Curtsey of their Project Page

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.

Thank you for checking out this week’s Kickstart Monday! If you find these interesting or want some attention on a Kickstarter or other crowdfunded projects that you would like to read more about please share your thoughts with us via our social media or at our email.

Who is Afraid of the Big Bat? Batman – Gotham City Chronicles

Monolith Games has recently started shipping the long awaited Kickstarter for Batman: Gotham City Chronicles. In this board game, in the normal play mode, up to three players take on the roles of Batman, Robin, and the rest of the Bat Family or GCPD members to take on the single Overlord player. The game re-uses a good number of the mechanics from their now very popular Conan board game. So, after getting my copy delivered a couple of weeks ago and getting a couple of games of it in now as the Overlord I am going to share some thoughts.

Rolling the Dice for Dungeon Roll

Dungeon Roll

Dungeon Roll is an interesting game with some unique components. In the game, you muster an adventuring party for 3 ‘delves’ into the dungeon. Your party is built from a set number of dice that you roll at the start of your turn. One of the other players then takes control of the monsters. You then start your delve with level 1 of the dungeon and try to see if you can make it through level 10 of the dungeon. For each level, the player controlling the monsters rolls one dice for each level. If you can defeat what is rolled, you can choose to advance or take your winnings and run. In order to defeat monsters and open chests, it requires using up your hero dice in your party so you have a bit of limited resources.

On top of that, each player starts the game as some unique character. It could be a tough as nails viking or a stout and stubborn dwarf. There are a lot to choose from, especially for those of us that originally backed the Kickstarter. This character gives you special abilities that you can use while you are on your delve. Perhaps when the dragon is woke up, you can escape for free or you get to use an extra dice when generating your adventuring party!
