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 projects that interest us.
First up this week we have the next entry in the South Tigris series of game from Garphill games.
Scholars of the South Tigris is a bag building and dice placement game set in medieval Baghdad. Players will influences powerful guilds, build their knowledge in the sciences on 6 unique resource tracks and translate scientific manuscripts for the Caliph. There is an engine building aspect to the game as well that lets you find your own path to victory. The game plays up to four players and also features a solo mode with 4 levels of difficulty.
The Kickstarter campaign is already more than fully funded so if you are a fan of other Garphill games this is likely a safe bet. You will need to pledge by March 15th to get in on this one.
Our other game this week is the Kickstarter for Star Tycoon, by Warp Core Games, an interstellar engine building game for 1 to 6 players.
Players in Star Tycoon will take the roll of a corporation participating in the galactic exchange of trade goods which boasts a player-driven resource market.
Players will also establish developments on planets build megastructures and maybe break the law by making illegal goods. I’m impressed so far with the art and design on display in Start Tycoon. The player count is also a plus there are not too many games that fill the 5-6 player niche. If you are eager to start taking over the galactic market Star Tycoon might be one to keep an eye on. The Kickstarter ends March 30th 2023.
