Kickstart Monday: Dinosaurs and Reaper Bones

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 KickstarterGamefound, 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.

We have had a bit of a hiatus due to Conesy recently moving, but we are getting back on track with this week’s #KickstartMonday

This week we are featuring a great way to fund an RPG miniature collection and our favorite dinosaurs.

Reaper Miniatures: Bones 6 – Tales From The Green Griffin

Reaper Miniatures: Bones 6 – Tales From The Green Griffin features loads of new models being added to the Reaper Bones Miniatures line. This is the 6th Reaper Bones Kickstarter and each of these has provided miniature collectors large numbers of great models to fill out collections at an affordable price.

The Green Griffin campaign core set has a number of great models that could be used as player characters in any fantasy RPG game including a small collection of gnomes. Of course, there’s no lack of monsters either with a nice collection of zombies, a werewolf looking monster, and several other critters. You can also add in the expansion to add in a number of components that can be used as furniture for various taverns, inns, or other indoor encounters.

If you would love a pile of great skulpts with new miniatures that you can add to your collection then you should look into Reapers Bones 6 on Kickstarter!

Jurassic World: The Legacy of Isla Nublar

Jurassic World: The Legacy of Isla Nublar from Prospero Hall takes us into the world of Jurassic World. This Cooperative Legacy style game will play out over 12 game plays. For 1-4 players, you will find yourself immersed in the world of dinosaurs and unlocking this story for 90-120 minutes of play for each of the 12 sessions.

Each adventure plays over 5 rounds. During each round, you will complete several phases including scouting new locations, taking actions, and then activating the dinosaurs. Each player will have a certain number of action tokens that they can use to run, lead a follower, herd some dinosaurs, search, rest, trade items with other players, or even activate buildings while indoors for unique actions! Of course, the dinosaurs will rome, eat, and occasionally cause all new problems. Will you be able to keep the big dinosaurs under control before they eat any of the park’s guests?

If you are a fan of the Jurrassic Park movies, love dinosaurs, or are interested in a new legacy game experience then you should check out this game from Prospero Hall!

Conesy’s Top Games of 2021

Every year I like to take a look back at what games I really enjoyed. 2021 has been a great year for gaming. With online gaming platforms like Board Game Arena and Tabletopia being added as ways to play the games I love I have had more opportunities this year to play games than any year previously. This is a year that has seen me get back to the table with role-playing games, come back to in-person gaming, and have seen me paint well over 200 figures as well!

Just a few statistics to start things off. This is by far my best year ever for playing as many, and as many unique games!

  • I played over 662 games.
  • My top venue was Board Game Arena.
  • I played over 148 unique games.
  • March was my best gaming month, with 80 games played.
  • My collection grew by approximately 100 games toping now at 605 titles including expansions.

Let’s dive in and take a look at some of the top games that Conesy played in 2021!
