Kickstart Monday: Masters of the Universe Battleground and Periodic Table Dice

Welcome to Kickstart Monday! This is our weekly series featuring 2 or more crowdfunding projects that have caught our eye. We scour over platforms like Kickstarter, Gamefound, and Indigogo to find interesting projects.

This week, we couldn’t help but be excited for more Masters of the Universe and these cool periodic table dice. With that, read on and let’s see what these projects have to offer!

Masters of the Universe: Battlegrounds

Masters of the Universe: Battleground Core Set from Archon Studios

By the power of Greyskull!!! Archon Studios has brought their hit tabletop miniature board game Masters of the Universe: Battlegrounds back to Gamefound. Not only that but this time, they can distribute it to more countries including the US. Masters of the Universe is one of my favorite intellectual properties and brings back amazing childhood memories. When this project launched originally and I couldn’t receive a copy in the US I was very disappointed. Fortunately, I found a way to get a copy, but now I can get all the expansion stuff I missed.

In Masters of the Universe: Battlegrounds you play a 2 player skirmish tabletop miniatures game on a hexagonal game board. Each player controls some of their favorite characters from the MotU setting to see who can win. The miniatures, as you can see in the picture, come unassembled and unpainted. However, these models have details and poses that are iconic and classic to the characters from the cartoons, comics, and toys that inspired them. Not only that, but I can say that the detail is of a very high quality on these models.

If you are like me and want to collect all things Masters of the Universe, then you should head over to Gamefound and check out this project!

Ultimate Periodic Table Dice

When we heard about these dice, we were immediately intrigued. Of course, with dice in the name of our show, how could we not? In the Ultimate Periodic Table Dice Kickstarter from Rampage Games you can get six-sided dice that feature 118 elements from the periodic table. Do we have your attention yet?

We were sent a copy of these dice to play with and we couldn’t help ourselves but roll them to see what crazy molecules we might roll up. There are certainly several clever learning games one might create to use these dice in the classroom or with their children to help make learning about the elements just that much more fun. On top of that, as an add-on to the project, you can get cards with all 118 elements that will have details about each one so that you can learn more about each of these.

If you have young children or just want to learn more about science then you should definitely head over to Kickstarter to check this project out today!

Kickstart Monday: Mini Mints and Masters our Childhood

Welcome to Kickstart Monday!!! Due to recovering from Gen Con, completely losing track of time, and general craziness that work has been I realize this is going out on Wednesday. There is a ton going on in the world of crowdfunding so I didn’t want to miss a week. Let’s take a look at this week’s projects.

Masters of the Universe: The Board Game – Clash For Eternia

Masters of the Universe: The Board Game – Clash For Eternia from CMON is a blast from our child hood. Masters of the Universe cartoons were a weekly delight for myself. For me, backing this project is just to own the figures and a piece of my child hood as much as it’s about being able to play this game.

In the game, players take on the role of a group of heroes or villians to carry out an epic battle for the fate of Eternia. Each game you will play out a scenario. The players will then take on a controller player who has characters that they manage and works to thwart the players.

This looks to be a fun throw back to our child hood with all of the characters and classic look of the original cartoon. If you are like me and love the Masters of the Universe then you will want to back this project from CMON.

Mint Mini

Mint Mini from Poketto is to be the last of the Mint series of games. These games come in small tins that resemble the tins that mint candies would come in. These games are ideal for travel due to their size, protective metal tin, and generally small amount of table space that they occupy.

In Mint Mini you will play a light drafting game for the opportunity to play one of the mini games inspired by the other Mint games. For 1-4 players, this game has an estimated play time of 20 minutes. Like the other Mint games, expect plenty of references to mints and lighter game play.

There are a few add ons with this project that are worth noting. Game mats and options to pick up and add in the other Mint games is worthy of note. Additionally, there is an option to pick up additional blank tins that you can use to store components and stuff in. Playmats are always nice, but the metal lunch box that you can use to store all of your Mint games in is classic.

If you travel and want to take your game on the go then you should check out this project from Poketto.
