Kickstarter Weekly–Feb. 7, 2014

7 02 2014

Well, it’s been an exciting week for us so far here at TOG, and even with the news about us being a part of the Simply Youth Ministry Conference, we’ve somehow found time to bring you another installment of games that are pleading their case over on Kickstarter.

There’s a ton of great stuff happening, so let’s dig in with this week’s Kickstarter Weekly!

Featured Campaign

This TownThis Town Ain’t Big Enough for the 2-4 of Us! – Tasty Minstrel Games

Tasty Minstrel is owning the micro game market on Kickstarter right now, and for $3 there’s no reason to wait to pull the trigger on this micro tile-placement western showdown!

The campaign ends Feb. 14, and, like we said you can get a copy for a pledge $3!! Find all the details including all the unlocked stretch goals right here!

Kickstarter Weekly, Oct. 21, 2013

28 10 2013

Last week was a busy one here at TOG! Essen was in full swing (and we weren’t there), but there have been lots of goings-on over on Kickstarter, and we’re here to highlight a few campaigns this week, and also hear from you about the games you’re backing! So let’s get started!

Featured Campaign!

Brew CraftersBrew Crafters: A Board Game About Making Beer – Dice Hate Me Games

There are some games that thematically aren’t what you’d call my (Jeremiah’s) cup of tea… or beer, wait, how does that work?
Anyway, we’ve been blown away by some great games that didn’t necessarily have a theme that we fell in love with. (Heartland Hauling, and Viticulture come to mind) But at the end of the day, superb gameplay won us over. The buzz around Brew Crafters has been solid and positive for months now, and it’s finally on Kickstarter. This Euro style board game packs an American theme, and the classic Dice Hate Me Games visual design that we’ve grown to love.

They should hit their funding goal TODAY they’re so close!

A $60 pledge get’s you a copy of the game sent to your door and the campaign closes on Nov. 24. You can get more details about the game, and upcoming stretch goals, right here!

Well, our little experiment last week resulted in a much different outcome than we thought it would. Thanks again everyone for the feedback! We’re back to normal for now, until we decide to rock the boat again!

Speaking of new things, you may have missed it yesterday, (we had a little hiccup with our email delivery system!) but we have officially launched the Theology of Games podcast! You can find it on iTunes by following this link RIGHT HERE!!! We’re very excited about this, and would love any and all feedback!

Anyway, there’s lots of stuff going down on Kickstarter this week, so let’s jump in!
