Hey there Kickers! How has your week been? As promised, this will not be a full post because today I played my first game of Twilight Imperium (Third Edition). I really enjoyed it! We had 5 players and made it 7 turns in before the Hacan player pulled off the win. I almost had it but I happened to lose a very important Dreadnaught at the most inopportune moment. We started with a rules explanation at 12:30 and ended about 8 hours later with a single break for food. Great game and I look forward to giving it another go.

So, right now there are 223 live Kickstarter Campaigns in the Tabletop Games category (up 3 from last week). Of those, 78 (~35%) have already reached their funding goal. 77 (34.5%) have related BGG pages.
