Western AustraliaKeeping you up to date with Kickstarter Campaigns in the Tabletop Games category
Hey there Kickers! Welcome to 2018 :tada:! I had intended to write my usual update last night but I was out for New Years Eve and didn't get home until 2am. I looked at the state of KS and figured it wasn't worth rushing it. I hope you'll forgive me
Right now there's just 106 live Kickstarter Campaigns in the Tabletop Games category (down 21 from last week). Of those, 41 (38.7%) have already reached their funding goal. A mere 13 (12.3%) have related BGG pages that I can find.
It sure feels like the tide has pulled all the way out and we need to be ready for the flood of campaigns coming in 2018. Remember to back responsibly.
This last weekend I got to play Terraforming Mars (which I was winning until end game scoring despite me telling the other players that they need a 2nd engine for the back half), Hansa Teutonica (I think I know what I did wrong and it's everything), Tiny Epic Quest (just like Hansa, I did not focus my strategy enough to get the big points). I also finally got my finger out and printed enough components to solo playtest a game of my own design. It's a long way off and I don't have any details to share yet but this was an important (and exciting) step.
What are you playing? What are you backing? Which of the upcoming Kickstarter Campaigns have you hoarding gold like a KS Pledge Dragon? Drop us a comment below and tell us.
