Kickstarter Weekly Summary - Sunday 8th October, 2017

Hey there Kickers! How was your week? I got to introduce my youngest (who is now 12!) to VENOM Assault. We kicked VENOMs butt! I managed to recruit Striker in the very first turn and then built a very vehicle heavy team. My son kicked in his share as well recruiting Blindside early on and taking out Shadowstaff and Octavia in two consecutive turns. Great stuff!

I also finally managed to play a game of Spirit Island with the full complement of 4 spirits. We won that game as well! Victory for all!

Right now there are 282 live Kickstarter Campaigns in the Tabletop Games category (up 18 from last week). Of those, only 126 (44.7%) have already reached their funding goals. 86 (30.5%) have related BGG pages that I can find.

What are you playing? What are you pledging for? What packages have you hovering by your mail-box every day? Drop us a comment below and tell us.

Remember to check out for an up to date list of live Kickstarter Campaigns in the Tabletop Games category. Hit the subscribe button, and next week we'll assemble a crack team to infiltrate VENOMs Sky Palace and retrieve another Kickstarter Update. For your eyes only.
