Keeping you up to date with Kickstarter Campaigns in the Tabletop Games category
Hey there Kickers and welcome to a special Mother's Day edition of Kick the Table. When I was a kid, my mum was instrumental in getting me into board gaming. When I saw an ad for HeroQuest on TV, I begged my mum for a copy and she got it for me and put it under the Christmas Tree. The note said it was from Santa but I was more naughty than nice that year so I'm pretty confident that it was her. She still enjoys a good game of Jaipur or a Scotch-fuelled game of The Mind every now and then. You'll probably never read this, but I love ya mum!

Today there are 284 live Kickstarter Campaigns in the Tabletop Games category (same as last week). Of those, 130 (45.8%) have already reached their funding goal. 73 (25.7%) have related BGG pages that I can find.

What are you playing? What are you backing? Do you play games with your mum (or even with your mom if you're in the US)? 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 there'll be another Kick the Table update, just for you.
