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!

I’m working on a few surprises and maybe a give away or two for the day as well! I’ll keep filtering info to you as the week goes on so be sure to check back!

Why We Play Games in My House

It occurred to me just a few nights ago while playing a prototype version of the Kickstarting Pigpen with my family, that some of the more deep and meaningful side benefits of playing games—sitting at a table instead of staring at the TV screen—were coming to fruition in my boys.
