Kickstarter Weekly–March 13, 2014

13 03 2014

Well, we know we were missing in action last week and neglected to bring you our usual volume of quality content–including an installment of Kickstarter Weekly. But never fear: We’re back at it this week and bringing you tons of exciting news from our favorite crowd-funding site. So without any further delays let’s dig in as we bring you a king-sized version of Kickstarter Weekly!

Featured Campaign!

TuscanyTuscany: Expand the World of Viticulture – Stonemaier Games

Viticulture, the game that nearly won my (Jeremiah’s) Game of the Year, is getting an expansion! This is an interesting take on tackling an expansion, where players will unlock smaller expansions one-by-one within the box until the full expansion is included into the game. It seems a clever device to slowly introduce smaller elements of the expansion instead of completely overwhelming players with a TON of new mechanics, components, and strategies. Because of these smaller modules of the expansion, players get to pick and choose their experience each time, as well.

The campaign has already blown past its funding goal and is over $150,000, which has unlocked tons of cool stretch goals, and they’re pushing closer to the final goals with each passing minute! Stonemaier has carved themselves a solid place in the market with their superbly run Kickstarter campaigns and great games; this should be a no-brainer to fans of Viticulture!

The campaign ends April 9. and it will cost a pledge of $45 for a copy. You can see all the details right here!
