Keeping you up to date with Kickstarter Campaigns in the Tabletop Games category
Hey there Kickers! How was your week? I got to play a game of Gloomhaven today. We got our butts handed to us by Oozes and Ancient Artillery but we had a ton of fun. I also made it to level 2 in my Tyrant's Grasp Pathfinder game.

Right now there are 294 live Kickstarter Campaigns in the Tabletop Games category (up 10 from last week). Of those, 148 (50.3%) have already reached their funding goal. 74 (25.2%) have related BGG pages that I can find.

What are you playing? What are you backing? Drop us a comment below and tell us!
