The Final Roll - Kickstarter News & Game Reviews
Episode #233: Friday, February 8th.


Man, I’m exhausted, absolutely Beat. Last few days have been really great, but really tiring. I’ll write all about it tomorrow, because there will be a Final Roll tomorrow! Not one that you’re used to having but something slightly different: with ZineQuest going on in February there’s a plethora of ‘zines’ coming out on Kickstarter. While I first decided I was going to ignore all of it and just pretend it didn’t exist, I’m making a list! It’s going to be a quick overview of whatever system all those zines were designed for. Title, Link, System and that’s it! How that came to be, also tomorrow!

Have A Great Weekend Though and Have Some Games!

New Games:
A Selection of what tickles my Fancy.

Bring History into Your Home By WoFun Games

Wow, this is very cool! Bring history into your Home does just that! It brings history, albeit the violent part of it to your Home in a very cool manner. It’s a miniature Wargame but quite unlike what you might expect when I say that. You just have to check this out, it’s like the entire History of Man is there to be played with. If you want to Have the Greeks fight the romans, You can! But Also the American Civil War, a very cool Wild West setting and the Napoleonic Wars! All Oozing with Charm! The game comes in three scales and there’s so many options that they made a special booklet for you, just to be able to comprehend what’s there, which is worth a look btw!

Mechanica By Mary Flanagan

Mechanica is a very cute and clever strategy game where you must build the perfect factory to build adorable little robots! It’s hard not to like the style and there’s some very interesting ideas in it too! I really like how the factory board look and work! Mechanica is 39 USD!

Stormguard By M. Chabot

I just wanted to show you this. I know this is not the first time I’m saying this, but this is the campaign where I’d buy a 3d-printer for (in like, a perfect world). And I do think I mean it. The stormguard models are… balanced is what I want to say and I think that’s one of the biggest compliments I can give. At the rate they are busting stretch goals, the all-in pledge of 135 CAD seems like a steal because there’s a Lot going right there!

SCALECOLOR ARTIST Smooth Acrylic Paints By SCALE75

And Maybe you want to paint it with some Scale 75 paints. Don’t know much about them, I have a LOT of Citadel so I don’t really need it right now, but It’s pretty to look at so there you go!

Other Noteworthy Games:
[i]For which I didn’t have time to write a lot…. Sorry

Believe it or not, I know how to knit. This is a card game about it and it’s doing very well, about to double its funding target! The game is 30 USD.

Alliance The Card Game By Cole Kornell

Alliance the Card game is a battle duel game which is bringing its 2 faction starter set for you to do some serious fantasy battling! It’s 39 USD for said starter kit.

2handsomeGames, which both previous campaigns I somehow remember, is bringing you play-anywhere hexagon placement game which will cost you 25 USD, but there’s still a few hours of EB left!


Role Playing Games:
A quick Summary

Legacy of the Ancients By A Hole in the Ground Terrain & Games
Kickstarter Link - Facebook
External image

A Non Zine RPG! It’s A campaign setting and player's guide for 5th Edition Dungeons & Dragons based on the popular CRPG from 1987, Legacy of the Ancients. Yeah, I just used the intro… it’s good!


Reprints, Relaunches & Upgrades:
A quick Summary

Incoming Transmission By Magic Meeple Games
Kickstarter Link - Facebook - Twitter - Instagram
External image

Magic Meeple Games is bringing they’re Incoming Transmission back to kickstarter with a companion App! I always like teh style of the MMG games with the pixel art and the SNES box and All (I own Fire of Eidolon) so if that and a Compact, Cooperative Puzzle Game is your thing. It’s 24 USD or 8 for a PNP.


Ending Very Soon:
Your Last Chance!!! The Projects I Backed or Starred.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Adventures City Fall By IDW Games

If you want some heroes in a half-shell in your house, you better be quick because the VERY (!!) successful campaign only has a few hours left! 2 Boxes, 125 USD a piece and 250 for both! There’s probably stuff to add-on too but I’m in a bit of a hurry.

Bay Watchers By Scylla Models

I didn’t show you these before but I don’t want to withhold them: I soooo want to paint these! I think they are magnificent. 29 EUR for the Set.

Oh Damn, I forgot I wanted to paint these too with the add-on system bringing even more awesome stuff to the Fata Morgana Diorama of my Dreams (It’s a very cool attraction in the Efteling Theme Park, google it!). You can really go wild here if you’d want to!
