A list of games I back on Kickstarter or consider backing or are coming to Kickstarter soon. Unfortunately, there are so many interesting Kickstarter games and my budget is limited. So it's like the knight in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade said: "Choose, but choose wisely."
What makes me want to back a game? First of all, it must tickle my interest of course. Second, I prefer games that scale well with 2 players. And then I also look at where the game comes from. A game from a European designer/publisher will be easier to get (for me, living in the EU) after the campaign than a US or down under release.

Micro game of bluffing and deduction. Looks like a really nice filler!

Wow, where did this come from? Just bumped into this game on KS, and it looks fantastic! And it seems like a perfect 2 player game, that takes about 30 minutes to play. It has hidden information, assymatrical powers, and OMG beautiful art! Must back this one. Only downside: it takes about a year to get the game (estimated delivery: June 2016). Patience, little grasshopper!

Fresh out on Kickstarter. As a Magic: the Gathering enthousiast, I'm always attracted to card games in a fantasy setting, but I don't want to get lost in games that are too much alike Magic. Will have to check out some gameplay videos when they get up. One thing I do like about Epic, is the fact that is not collectible.

Most look into this one.
Status: decided not to back this one... I'm not fond of the combat system with cards... Maybe I'll get to play it some day at a game club and regret not having backed this one.

I was interested in this game since it was still in early development and called Legends at War. It will come to KS by the end of May 2015, and this is a must back for me.

Status: $ 59 for the game + $ 19 shipping = $ 78. Sorry, this is too expensive for a card game for me... And shipping is not EU-friendly, so I expect some taxes will be due too on top of this amount...

Edit: funding cancelled June 17. But I saw they finally got the EU-friendly sticker. So waiting for a relaunch that will hopefully have better pricing and keep the EU-friendly status.

I was really dissapointed I couldn't get my hands on a copy of this one in Essen 2014. When this got on KS, it was an insta-back.

Second edition of the game that caught my eye at Essen Spiel 2014. We played the original (Russian) version there, and in a different hall we saw this remake, that just looks a lot smoother en slickier. Didn't buy it then because demo'ers there said it needed more than 2 players to shine, and at that point I didn't have a lot of gamer buddies, other than my significant other.
Still regret not having this game, because it looks really awesome! But budget is tight, so still hesitant to back this one...

Status: not sure if I will back this, or just get my copy at Essen Spiel 2015.
Edit: I caved and backed it on KS with pick up in Essen :-) Can't wait to play this one!

I saw this game (in German) at Essen Spiel 2014. Looked really interesting. It came to KS, and really wanted to back it, but finally decided to wait, because I still have a lot of unplayed games in my collection, and already some card games like Magic The Gathering and Mage Wars. Will definitely check this one out at Essen 2015.

Looks great, but hesitated to back, because it was quite expensive (although great value in the box, no discussion there), and I already backed so many projects...

Status: decided to skip this one, but I hope to get my hands on a copy once it hits retail or maybe, just mabye, some backers are not happy with the game and want to part with it. A girl can always dream, right? laugh

Looks interesting. I'm a sucker for history, so must definitely keep my eye on this one. Not sure it plays well with two, and that is a prerequisite for buying a game, since I play mostly with two.
