Welcome to #KickstartMonday!!!! We have a couple of games that really have us intrigued on deck today. Make sure you follow along each week as we discover two or more crowdfunded gaming projects. Join us as we explore #KickstartMonday

Arydia: The Paths We Dare Tread

Arydia: The Paths We Dare Tread from Far Off Games is designed by the same design team that put together Xia: Legends of the Drift System. In Arydia, you will play a series of linked games with between 1-4 players to explore and discover the fantasy land of Arydia. This game is a classic campaign game where your characters will advance and grow over the course of game play. Arm yourselves, gather your friends, and explore the land.

Included with this project is over 60 pre-painted fantasy figures that you will have the opportunity to encounter over the course of the campaign. The game features different paths for the players that encompass the classic fantasy characters – warriors, healers, rogues, and rangers. With so much content to uncover and explore this will most certainly find a way back to your game table if you should choose to support it!

Discover new lands in this game of fantasy exploration. Unlock new powers as you gain mastery over your path. With events to overcome, monsters to thwart, and stories to be told this game has real potential.


Pirates from Queen Games offers a light, fun pirate themed game for 3-5 players. This game is, at it’s core, a revised version of Buccaneer from Stefan Dorra. Play time promises to be quick, making this ideal for an evening game night or filler game for a game day.

On you turn you will take one of four actions, assemble boarders, capture, mutiny, and capture a pirate. From these actions play will proceed until all twenty cards are discovered. At that point, the game ends immediately.

The components and art of the game look very attractive, but most of the components are relegated to punch board card components, cards, and a few wooden tokens. At $35 US to support this project though, there is plenty of game here and certainly hours of fun for your gaming group.

If you like pirates and lighter games that play quickly, then make sure you check out Pirates from Queen Games.
