Hey there Kickers! How was your week? I got to play Gloomhaven again. My character has a reputation for rushing ahead and opening all of the doors due to every battle goal I have ever taken. This week it bit her in the butt and she fell to a scary room full of enemies. We won the scenario though. YAY! I also got an email saying that my copy was coming soon (we've been playing my brother's copy). When it arrives I think I'll play a second campaign with two characters we aren't playing with.

Afterwards we played Quests of Valeria and I really enjoyed it. It really is like a light, card based, Lords of Waterdeep.

Right now there are 282 live Kickstarter Campaigns in the Tabletop Games category (down 13 from last week). Of those, 133 (47%) already have reached their funding goal. Only 83 (29.4%) have related BGG pages that I can find.

What are you playing? What are you backing? What packages have you haunting your mailbox? Drop us a comment below and tell us.

Check out for an up to date list of Kickstarter Campaigns in the Tabletop Games category. Hit the subscribe button and next week I'll comb the desert to bring you clues in another Kick the Table.
