NOTICE: Due to certain upcoming life circumstances (a baby and grad school) the header for this list will no longer be updated. I have decided to close the list since it is difficult to keep up to date without a running header. For current 2013 Kickstarter Projects please see 2013 Kickstarter Boardgame Projects. Thanks!

[NOTE: This list is for Kickstarter projects only. Please do not post items from other crowdfunding websites here, rather visit the links at the bottom of the header. Thank you]

Over the last year I've noticed several different games by small publishers use Kickstarter as a way to gauge interest and generate pre-order sales. It seems like a great way for small publishers to generate interest and sales.

I am relatively new to Kickstarter and found their search capacity for projects rather frustrating. I'm never sure if I am missing projects I might be interested in or not.

Please list here any Kickstarter projects you come across that are board games or at least board game related. This is intended to help raise awareness to the BGG community about these projects and give us a chance to jump on if we are interested.

EDIT: In order to make this list more useful to people I am asking that if you list an item, when the funding ends please update the entry to reflect whether or not the funding was achieved.

Hunt the Wumpus.

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1382641577/hunt-the-wump...

Only 19 days left to fund the nice little card game.

The card game is called 'Hunt The Wumpus' in which you, quite obviously, hunt a weird creature called the Wumpus. You do this by laying down traps. Not to actually catch the Wumpus, but because the Wumpus is stupid and is drawn to the biggest and most elaborate trap around. Once he is fascinated enough by your trap, he will simply follow you where ever you lead him!

Beware, the other players will steal, move and destroy your traps. Also, the Wumpus is easily confused, so if it finds two traps equally impressive, it will stand there drooling. Use this to your advantage by giving traps to your competitors in order to prevent them from winning. Counter-productivity can be fun!

We have played this game with dozens of people and have yet to have a game not break out in laughter several times. So if you are looking for a great party game that can be played with anyone, starting hunting a Wumpus!

Game description from the publisher(Gryphon):

You've entrusted your nine courtiers to deliver a beautiful love letter to Princess Persephone, but your opponent also has nine courtiers delivering an equally moving love letter to the same princess! In each case, eight letters are decoys and only the letter with the red seal is the "true" love letter. Intercept your rival's true love letter to make sure that only your letter sways her affections.

In Mirror Mirror each of the three types of Character pieces carries a letter, has a mirror on the back of the piece, and has a special way of moving on the board similar to chess. When your piece lands on an opponent's piece, you must say what color seal is on its letter. If correct, that piece is removed from play; otherwise your piece is removed from play. Choose carefully and make liberal use of your mirrors to discover the color of the seals on your opponent's pieces before venturing to intercept their letters.

Here's one I found yesterday, it's called RoboArena- Asynchronous Multiplayer Tactical iOS Game. They've reached their goal but now if they can reach $2000.00 they plan to also release a boardgame based on the video game. Right now they're giving out PnP packages. This is a game for 2 players. The game is light but seems fun, I just got my PnP package & haven't built it yet.
The kickstarter page is here

"In Dragon Valley, players take on the role of Barons that must defend the Kingdom, but most importantly their own Baronies, from the attacking orcs and dragons. The King sends aid in the form of knights, archers, blacksmith shops, defensive towers and special abilities to his favorite for that round. That Baron must separate the King's Aid into caravans of troops, building materials and special abilities. Be careful though to not make one group of Aid too powerful or your feudal opponents will grow in power.

Once the Aid has arrived to your Barony, use it wisely to either build impenetrable defenses, upgrade your troops in order to combat the invaders as they enter through the mountain pass or take the fight to them using siege equipment."

FUNDING CANCELLED

Mage Wars: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/340631149/mage-wars-the-...

The Story:
As Marthong, the tormentor, stood ready to deliver the finishing blow, THE ARCHMAGE, Arcturius, issued his final prophesy, “In time, the people will hunger for a true leader once more. From among the weak, one mightier than I will arise and lead the Council of Mages and your tyranny will be abolished forever.” Former members of the dissolved Mage Council fled into hiding to protect the ancient secrets. Through the years of corruption, these secrets barely survived through six spell books passed down from generation to generation. Former members of the Mage Council are eventually able to use the ancient prophecy of Arcturius to inspire a rebellion among the people and the reign of tyranny is abolished.

However, as the Mage Council is reorganized, they are unable to agree upon a leader, instilling feelings of mistrust and rage among the members. There are those who truly want the best for the sacred lands and there are those who only seek power. The more influential members step forward and declare that they will protect those loyal to them and persuade others to join their cause. They gain followers by proving their knowledge and experience through the summoning of mighty creatures and the casting of the ancient spells. The call for THE ARCHMAGE has set in motion: the Mage Wars!


The Objective:
Take your rightful place among the newly formed Mage Council. Will you lead in righteousness and protect those who look to you for guidance and protection or will you bring more evil upon your supporters? You must summon an army of creatures, use the elements to cast spells, protect your lands and instill fear in your enemies. Whoever gains the most experience will become THE ARCHMAGE and fulfill The Ancient Prophecy!

Town of Misfortune

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/georgeperalta/town-of-mi...

Town of Misfortune is a game that I want to be a contribution to those who have stayed up laughing and playing a board/card/dice games with their friends late into the night.

It has the potential to bring a great experience mixed with elements like bluffing, strategy, a bit of mystery and most importantly lots of laughter. Check out the video interview at the Game Studio I had recently or Pledge at least $1 for the full rules to learn more.

This first round of the Kickstarter campaign will be used to set up the website, get all the materials including the full prototype and cards printed, and most importantly get those who pledge their sets so they can spread the word and have fun.

A roll and move/hand management game involving a Dungeon Crawl gone bad. The game's humor is amusing, and the artwork looks interesting.Recently made it's funding goal.

I have hesitated because, frankly, the videos and information available are somewhat vague regarding gameplay. Another item that may have hurt is the discussion of a DVD included with the game; if this is an optional accessory, then good on ya. However, if it's essential to gameplay, it may be a dealbreaker for many gamers.

Green's Cube - Physics Equation Board Game

Taken from Kickstarter Page:

"Basically Green's cube is a word game but with physics equations designed to emphasize the multiple forms an equation can take. Look at Newton's second law, which is often taught as F=ma but not necessarily. Students on a different part of the planet might know it as F=m dv/dt and Newton himself defined it as the change in momentum, or F=dp/dt (look at the main image for other examples). Green's Cube embraces these differences/similarities by encouraging players to find different forms. Players construct equations from a randomly chosen tool-set and are rewarded for finding different or more elegant forms of equations and penalized for re-using equations played by others.

But beware! This isn't [insert name of your favorite word game here], and there is no dictionary. If challenged a player must be prepared to defend his play with derivations, verifications, logical reasoning, or just all-out mathematical proof. The competitive arena allows players to peak inside the heads of their peers and pick their brains in a way that typically isn't appropriate in a classroom setting."
