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.

Kickstart Monday: These Goblins Might Need a Minty Fresh Game

Scouring crowdsourcing platforms for this weeks games was an interesting challenge. It seems that this point in January is a bit lighter on projects that caught my eye, but hopefully these two projects will will make you feel minty fresh.

Return to the Court of the Goblin King

Effincool Miniatures is looking to license The Court of the Goblin King which was originally from Flytrap Factory in New Zealand. This project, the Return to the Court of the Goblin King, is a classic Kickstarter that features a company that needs funding for things like tooling, contracting a studio painter, and paying for the licensing. To me, this is what crowdfunding is all about.

The models themselves are takes on classic Scandanavian and Germanic folklore of goblins. Featuring a Goblin King on throne and various other golbins that become the goblin court. On top of that, if you back at the right level you have the chance to pick up a massive resin Hill Giant, a cave troll captive, and a number of cool stretch goal models.

Mint Bid

Mint Bid from Poketto is the latest in these Mint games to release. Each game in the series features a small metal tin that resembles those fresh mint tins. We actually own the other games in this series. Each game is very unique and would be great if you need something small to travel and play.

Mint Bid looks to feature you bidding for various locations to have a chance to rebuild the city after a super hero disaster. You may find yourself working with a partner to outbid the other team, but beware, each palyer is working to win the game on their own.
