Kickstarter Weekly–April 4, 2014

4 04 2014

Hey everyone! We have some exciting news for you all! But we can’t tell you just yet! Such a let down, right?

Anyway, we’re going to jump in with this week’s Kickstarter Weekly, and there’s some cool stuff to check out from some of our favorite publishers and designers, so let’s get crackin’!

 

Featured Campaign!

storytellerStoryteller Cards: Fantasy – Jason Tagmire

Our good friend Jason Tagmire is back with another deck of Storyteller cards. Storyteller cards serve as a regular deck of playing cards, a creative tool, and a way to teach creativity to young gamers – think story dice. Along with the cards, your pledge will score you the Storyteller Manual–in PDF form, or as an add-on–that will have games designed by some fantastic designers specifically for the deck of cards you’ll be getting. The first game announced is Divvy In The Dungeon by the one and only Jason Kotarski, you may know him as the guy who designed a TOG favorite The Great Heartland Hauling Co. And who has a few more games hitting the market this year with Crash Games! With more to come, this campaign is super inexpensive to get into and packs a lot of potential; we think you should jump on board!

The campaign ends on April 24, and a pledge of $10 will get you a deck of your own! You can find all of the details right here!

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!

Gone Viking! is a trick-taking game with a pantheon of twists on the genre. Is it a longboat of fun, or should it be sacked? Let’s find out.

Should Established Publishers be Crowd-Funding Their Games?

28 02 2014

A few weeks ago we told you that Hans im Gluck is preparing to crowd fund the latest edition of Saint Petersburg. Firestone and I (Jeremiah) have recently had some discussions about whether or not it’s right, or a misuse of the crowd funding tools, for well-established publishers to bring new titles–or special edition/big box versions of classic titles–into the marketplace via crowd-funding sites such as Kickstarter.
