Kickstarter Weekly—Nov. 22, 2013

22 11 2013

Wow, it’s been a crazy week for us here at TOG, and things have gotten away from us!

So, without further ado we’re going to jump into this week’s Kickstarter Weekly!

Most likely these games won’t be making it under your Christmas tree this year, (seeing as how a lot of these campaigns don’t even end until after Christmas), but it ever hurts to plan ahead for… ya know… Valentines Day, Arbor Day, Memorial Day…. Or, well, you get what we’re saying…

So let’s jump in!

Featured Campaign

Hold your breathHold Your Breath – Mayday Games

In this, the third and final installment in the Get Bit trilogy, players are once again playing as some less than intelligent pirates who have just gone overboard in “Walk the Plank!”. This campaign is going gangbusters and there are a few stretch goals unlocked with more on the way! 

You can get in on this one for $18 to get a copy shipped to your door. The campaign ends Dec. 21 and you can check it out here!

Kickstarter Weekly—Nov. 14, 2013

14 11 2013

Well, the calendar keeps clicking along and the holidays are quickly upon us. Chances are the games you’re backing today on Kickstarter won’t be under your tree this year, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t any worth taking a look at! So with an eye to the future we bring you this week’s Kickstarter Weekly! Enjoy!

Featured Campaign!

McNinjaDr. McNinja’s Legendary Showdown – Killer Robot Games

Utilizing the zany universe of the web comic Dr. McNinja, Legendary showdown claims to be a fun, light, and hilarious card battle game. The game was designed my McNinja Master Christopher Hastings, who also wrote some Marvel comic, or something… Anyway, this campaign is FUNDED, or at least it will be once it comes to completion. They’ve already destroyed 10, yes TEN stretch goals, and could hit even more by the time everything is said and done.

It will take a $30 to score the game. And the campaign ends Nov. 22

An Interview with Alan Gerding—Two Rooms and A Boom!

13 11 2013

Two RoomsSo a few Saturdays ago, I (Jeremiah) sat down to play games for 24 hours straight, as a part of the Extra Life charity fundraiser for the Children’s Miracle Network of Hospitals. Great people, great cause!

We had a lot of fun, raised some money, and made new friends.

One of those friends was Alan Gerding, co-founder of Tuesday Knight Games and co-designer of Two Rooms and a Boom! Alan and his wife (Crystol) stopped by later in the evening and introduced us to Two Rooms in a Boom.
