Welcome to the week! Time to get it started right with two new crowdfunding projects coming to you from the land of Kickstarter. We will be racing for beer and picking up our essentials for board game survival. Let’s check the featured projects out!
The Belgian Beers Race US Edition
Grand Gamers Guild has a new project and this time you will be racing around Belgium, sampling great beer, and trying not to get too intoxicated in the process. If that doesn’t sound like a college European vacation then I am not sure what does!
The game will take place over three game days. The game appears to use an action time track where various actions take differing amounts of time. Whoever is furthest behind (has the most time) is the next person to activate. When the day runs out of time then the round is done for you.
During each round you will need to travel by hitch hiking, buss, or biking around Belgium to reach each brewery. Of course, once you stop you can choose to take a taste and purchase beer, purchase cheese, and meet up with the other players. Of course all of these activities take time. Worst of all, meeting up with friends and tasting beer will move you up on the breathalyzer track. Move too far up and you will lose time the next day!
Each round you will score points for various activities. If you have what it takes for a wild, beer soaked ride in Belgium then you should probably do that instead. However, for the rest of this, we can relive one of our college vacations when we play The Belgian Beers Race.
Make 100: The Board Game Survival Kit
Sit down to play a game at the table, just to find out the game doesn’t have components for your player color? Tired of getting confused during the game because you had to settle for a player color you usually don’t play? Well bring your own player pieces in this handy tin in this project.
Atikin Games, the publisher of this Kickstarter, is including a tin to hold your survival kit, 5 meeples, 2 dice, a plastic player marker, and a round cylinder in the kit. You can upgrade the kit to have a custom an updated logo on the tin, a deluxe version that includes a set of polyhedral dice and bag, and several of the Atikin board games in various bundles.
This is a great little way to help ensure you don’t get mixed up the next time you play a game.
