It’s the start of another week. That means it’s time for Kickstart Monday, our weekly blog series featuring 2 or more crowdfunded gaming projects. This week features a pair of board games that are quite different than each other. Both look really cool though and we thing you should take the time to check them out!

Forests of Pangaia

Forests of Pangaia from Pangaia Games is a strategy board game for 2-4 players. During the game you will be leveraging the four elements to plant and grow your trees on the game board. You will come upon barren lands that will require you to complete “rituals” in the game. When you do this you will score life energy (essentially points). Whoever has the most life energy when the final ritual is completed wins!

This game shines as a shorter strategy game, with a play time indicated between 30-60 minutes. Having reviewed the rules there appears to be some real depth in strategy in the game, but the rules are easy to pick up and understand. This really does appear to be a game that will be great as a family game, but also have enough game for even hard core gamers to find enjoyment out of.

If you are looking for a game that features nature, beautiful trees, a dynamic hex based player board, and lighter rules and shorter play time then this is game you should really check out.


Interceptor from the FASA Corporation is a game about space combat with players controlling a small wing of fighters. The core game comes with enough ships, cards, dice, and other accessories to play the game for what looks like two players. With multiple factions available there will be lots to explore in this game.

Players will build their fighter wing of at least 6 fighters and pilots from the wide selection of options available. Then using a predominately D10 dice system for determining results such as shooting at enemy fighters, players will take each other on in a game that should run about 60 minutes of play time for experienced players.

If you are looking for a cool, space themed game that takes represents fast paced space combat and test your mettle against other players and factions then this game very well could be for you.
