Welcome to Kickstart Monday!!!! This is our weekly series featuring 2 or more crowdfunding projects in the tabletop gaming industry. I scour over platforms like Kickstarter, Gamefound, and Indigogo to find projects that interest me. People would ask me what I think is worth backing. Since I was providing these recommendations all ready, what better way to do it than post a weekly blog about projects I am interested in.
Stay informed when new Kickstart Monday projects come out by following us on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter and following the #KickstartMonday hashtag.
This week on Kickstart Monday I head over to Gamefound to look at an expansion to one of the games I hear talked about all of the time. Then we take a look at a surprisingly fun dice game.
Sleeping Gods: Distant Skies
Sleeping Gods: Distant Skies from Red Raven Games is a much-anticipated stand-alone sequel to Sleeping Gods. This expansion is going to provide more Sleeping Gods content. More characters, locations, narrative arcs, and more to discover. Featuring a new massive open world you will need to use your airplane to fly and discover some of the new locations.
Sleeping Gods: Distant Skies is a narrative, quest-based campaign game for 1-4 players. Playtime will likely vary somewhat on a per quest basis, but most sessions can be completed in 1-2 hours. Like many campaign games expect this one will keep you engaged for likely hundreds of gaming hours.
If you love deep narrative immersive games with a heavy story element and light role-playing then you should consider backing this project!
Tin Spin from Surprisingly Fun Games is exactly that, surprisingly fun! We have had the opportunity to actually play this game for 2-6 players. This game features dexterity, strategy, and even some risk/reward gambling of gold cubes (points). The small form factor (a small metal tin) makes this game extremely easy to transport and its simple rules make it ideal for gamers and non-gamers.
On your turn you will either roll the dice you control or you will take a whirl at spinning your dice. Both have their risks and depending on the dice you control at the time you might opt for one option over the other. Of course, once you are done resolving your turn you will roll the SWAP die which will determine if the dice are passed and in which direction around the table.
We laughed and had a great time when we had the opportunity to play this game. It’s a great game to give as a gift so pick up a pair of copies when you back this project!
