Kickstart Monday: Dawn of Ulos and Legacy of Yu

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 already. So why not share my thoughts with a weekly blog about projects that interest me?

Stay informed when new Kickstart Monday projects come out by following us on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter and following the #KickstartMonday hashtag.

This week I am diving into more board game content as to new projects are just hitting the scene. These two projects are from two of my favorite publishers so let’s dive into the projects and see what has me so excited!

Dawn of Ulos – A Roll Player Tale

Dawn of Ulos – A Roll Player Tale from ThunderWorks Games is the next game in the line of games set in the Roll Player universe. This game for 1-5 players will introduce new mechanics to this family of games.

While it will retain the similar art and look of previous games in the Roll Player Universe, this game will leverage tile laying and an economic engine that you will need to balance to be successful. Featuring 10 factions in the game (5 in each game), you will take part as the creator of civilization with table stakes in factions in areas you control. This in turn will gain you points towards winning the game.

If you love the idea of being the influencing creator of a world while competing against other powers for the influence of the world in a game then this project may well be for you!

Legacy of Yu

Legacy of Yu from Garphill Games takes a dive into the truly solitaire playing experience. That’s right, this game is for just a single-player campaign game. The campaign features self-balancing elements so that you should have a good experience even if you are struggling to get those wins in the game. The campaign game runs for 7 full plays of the game, at which point it’s easily reset so that you can try to do better the next time. As you progress, new elements will come into the game presenting new and exciting things to explore.

During the game, you will play Yu the Great during the Xia Dynasty in China. You will need to build canals and defend your village. During the game, you will need to balance worker placement, deck management, and resource management together to string actions together to have increasingly more efficient turns.

If you needed a great solo play game to add to your collection or think the theme of this game sounds intriguing make sure you check this project out.

Did we miss your favorite project?

Thank you for checking out this week’s Kickstart Monday! If you find these interesting or want some attention on a Kickstarter or other crowdfunded projects that you would like to read more about please share your thoughts with us via our social media or email.
