When I started prepping for this week’s Kickstart Monday post, I thought I would be talking about Knight Games new project. Since that was pulled down and is slotted to be re-launched later this week I had to do some quick research to find a second game to talk about. I always enjoy scouring Kickstarter for board games, miniatures products, and other just cool stuff that people are trying to get funded. This week I found two projects that I found pretty cool.
Infinity Game Table
Let’s start with the Infinity Game Table by Arcade1up is an example of what the next generation may come to expect for tabletop gaming. This table features either a 32inch or 24 inch screen options running the Android OS. The table is wifi enabled, which is expected, with the ability to allow indy game developers to create and add their games to this system. Out of the box the system features all of the most popular board and card games such as Monopoly, Pandemic, Battleship and more. It will be interesting as the future of the tabletop gaming continues to see how technology continues to become more integrated with it. It’s not clear how easy the interface will be to use, but set up time should be a breeze. The table is featured to be able to be broken down and stored. This means you don’t have to leave the game table out and don’t have to pick up the game components after play!
Freedom Five: A Sentinel Comics Board Game
Freedom Five: A Sentinel Comics Board Game by Arcane Wonders extends the gaming universe of the Sentinels Comics universe. The core game will include 8 asymmetrical heroes that players can play. You have options to just pick up the retail version of the game, or to upgrade your copy to have miniatures. There’s even an option to pick up pre-painted figures! You will take on various villains and henchmen that are trying to play out their schemes in Megalopolis city. You will play out scenarios that are provided in a cool, comic book format. This game screams theme and if it plays like their card game it will for sure be a hit.
