Kickstart Mondays is all about sharing two new Kickstarter projects each week. These projects are always gaming related, whether that’s a cool new game, accessory, table, or other product. Stay tuned here to find out what projects you might want to look at backing on Kickstarter!

Kickstart Monday: Pay the Coin for Amazing Miniatures

Welcome to Kickstart Monday!!! This is our typically weekly series featuring two or more crowdfunded projects for tabletop gaming. Every week I take a dive into what looks interesting on sites like Gamefound and Kickstarter. Hopefully, you will find these projects of interest too!

This week’s featured projects include metal coins for use as replacements in your games and amazing resin demon miniatures. Hopefully, you are as interested as I am. Let’s check them out!

Demons of the Hollowdepths

Demons of the Hollowdepths from Draco Studios features three massive demonic figure sculpts. The project allows you to actually obtain resin copies of the figures, something rare it seems like for miniatures these days. Additionally, you have the option as a backer to obtain the STL files if you would prefer to try to print your own. Expand your pledge with dragons from some of their previous work or their epic herald miniatures.

I can see these figures being used in a tabletop RPG where this is the manifestation of some demonic villain that will be centered as the boss for several sessions. Perhaps you are a Warhammer player. In that case, any of these demonic models would make for a great Slaanesh demon prince or other significant demon model replacement.

Perhaps you are playing Dungeons and Dragons Descent into Avernus or you are looking for something unique to make your demonic horde for Warhammer or Kings of War really stand out. If so, then you should certainly check out this project.

Basikcoins

Basikcoins from Basik Tabletop aims to create metal coins that are affordable and unique. Whether you play board games, role-playing games, or even miniature games there is often a need to have metal coins. These coins are offered in options for fairly large quantities in colors from copper, silver, and gold.

I remember playing in a Dungeons and Dragons game years ago where the DM had a large collection of metal coins. Instead of just jotting counts on paper, we were given the coins every time we gained treasure. This really did add to the immersion of the game. The same can be said every time we play a board game. Play with the included cardboard coins, or upgrade and pull out the metal coins and swap them in. It all adds to the fun and enjoyment for everyone at the table.

If you would like to add a large number of cool, metal coins to your collection. Whether it’s supplementing your RPG game, a board game, or even in use as cool tokens for a miniature game then you should certainly check this project out.

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: 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.

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.

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!
