Kickstart Monday: Abstract Strategy Meets Cthulhu

Welcome to Kickstart Monday!!! It’s 2022 and I am excited for all that this new year will bring. On Kickstart Monday I scour crowdfunding platforms for two or more projects that I feel are worth looking at. This includes platforms like Kickstarter, Gamefound, and Indigogo. Everything that is recommended on Kickstart Monday is oriented around tabletop gaming in some fashion.

This week I take a look at a really cool abstract game and plush creature that surely will rise from the depths. Let’s dive into it!

Canosa

Canosa from One Day West Games is an abstract game for two players that should take you around 20 minutes to play. In the game, you play as a siren who is trying to capture shipwrecked sailors. The box art is beautiful and actually is part of the gameplay experience.

Once the game is set up you will perform one of four actions on your turn. First, you may move your siren token. Next, you can move a ring from your siren to a sailor. This must be a sailor that is adjacent to your siren. Once you have a sailor under your control you then unlock the move a sailor action. Of course, the number of rings you have is limited so during the game you may need to remove a ring from a sailor and move it back to your siren.

To win the game you need to be the first to successfully move 4 sailors off the board or to trap your opponent. Moving sailors off the board is the most common way to win and involves moving a sailor to your starting spot. When this happens, remove the sailor from the board. Do this before your opponent and you win!

If you like quick, abstract strategy games then you should check out this one from One Day West Games.

Cthulhu’s D20 Plush

Cthulhu’s D20 Plush from NekoRaveWolf is a cute stuffed Cthulhu plushy with a removable D20. While not a traditional gaming-related item, this plushy would be great to help decorate a tabletop gaming space. Of course, if you just want more cute plushy critters then you can’t go wrong with this one either.

There are a number of unlocks and add ons that you look at adding to your pledge, from cute pins to funding goals that will unlock upgrades to the plushy.

If your gaming space needs a little decoration then you should check out this plushy project.

Board Game Brunch: Battling Monsters of the Cthulhu Mythos

This week we dove into a world of fantasy and explored the Cthulhu mythos. It was our second play through of a the Cthulhu deck building game. Our last was almost a year ago, so it was time to break it out and enjoy battling the monsters with some green spaghetti and meatballs.

Kickstart Monday: Amazing Dark Elves Join Forces with Creepy Cultists

After a week off, we’re back with a new Kickstart Monday for you. This time we are diving into the lands of miniatures with two really good crowd funded projects that should get you excited for these figures. Both of these projects feature real figures that are planned to be manufactured, not just 3D printed models!

28mm Eastern Dark Elves

These 28mm Eastern Dark Elf miniatures from Mirliton feature all of the models you would want to include in a fantasy dark elf army. These models are sculpted in 3D modeling software, but are being manufactured in white metal to be delivered to backers.

These models all have are themed around more middle eastern look and feel. This makes them really unique against other companies that are producing dark elf models. Whether you are building an old Warhammer Fantasy army, Ninth Age, Kings of War, or really any other system that uses 28mm figures these are sure to give you a really unique look at feel to your army on the tabletop.

Cultists and Zombies

Cultists and Zombies from RBJ Game Company features an assortment of 28mm figures cast in white metal. Not only is there a big and terrifying mythos monster, but an assortment of really unique zombies and cultists. Models are all sculpted to 28mm scale and so should roughly blend in with other miniatures of that scale.

These figures would be great to supplement a GM’s needs for a mythos RPG or a player who is looking to play a mythos skirmish wargame. If you are one of those people you should definitely check this one out.

Kickstart Monday: Spooky Graveyards and Need Investigation

It’s Kickstart Monday and it’s time to talk about two new crowd funded projects today. Today’s feature projects will dive into our love of tabletop miniature gaming.

Tabletop World’s Graveyard Terrain

For our first crowd funded project let’s take a look at this Kickstarter from Tabletop World’s graveyard terrain for 28-32mm modular resin terrain. This terrain looks beautifully gothic and I can see it fitting so many different tabletops. Indeed, I can see this terrain working for Malifaux, Warhammer, Batman Miniature Game, and many other games.

What I really like about this is that this is truly a modular set of terrain that you can back this project and receive physical copies of. You can pick up as much of it as you want, duplicates of certain pieces if you would like, or just a couple of pieces to supplement your gaming board. Whatever direction you want to take it, this terrain is certain to make your table look more stunning!

The Nightgaunt’s Nightmare – 15 Call of Cthulhu Miniatures

Keeping to this week’s theme, The Nightgaunt’s Nightmare project from Cosmondo features 15 cool figures that you can use to explore your new graveyard terrain. This Kickstarter Project features only the .STL files for these figures. This means you’ll need access to a 3D printer to take advantage of these models.

In the images provided, these models look pretty cool and would be great additions to your Call of Cthulhu RPG game or to add as additional background characters in any horror game (miniature or otherwise). Indeed I could see some of these figures getting used in even Zombie Apocalypse games!
