This is a list of upcoming anticipated board games to be launched for Kickstarter. Please help this list by adding a game with a launch date (or estimated), as it's difficult to know everything coming up in the pipeline. If you have any pertinent information regarding a games Kickstarter launch or development, feel free to comment with that as well.

Please use the standard format (with geeklinks) for items added to the list, and then any other info OR pictures may be added as a comment below! It helps significantly to keep this list organized with a standard format and not to include anything extra in the geeklist item header itself. Any geeklist item not following this format is subject to deletion.

Description


PUBLISHERS: Hopefully this will be a great list for you to generate some traffic to your project before it launches. I'll do my best to keep arranging these in order by estimated release date as games are added.

Once a game has been launched on Kickstarter, It will be removed a few days after launch (3-7 days), as there are plenty of devoted lists and posts for active Kickstarter projects. Due to life demands right now of opening Hitherto Coffee & Gaming Parlour, I am MIA on BGG activity and usually only updating this list monthly. After things calm down I hope to get back to the list more regularly. Special thanks to those whom are managing their additions and marking games as launched and completed to help keep the list cleaned up.

This is a list for only upcoming and unlaunched projects. Please feel free to geekmail me if you have any questions.

Thanks for subscribing and enjoy!

*disclaimer: This list is not anything definitive to a project launching on the estimated date, or time, or even launching period, as project creators/publishers may change plans without notice.

Brought to up by Mindclash Games of Trickerion and Anachrony fame.

That cover alone makes me swoon, particularly since these guys choose fantastic themes. I have every confidence this is going to be one of the most stunningly beautiful games out there.

Haven't seen any hard info but the game page refers to cooperative adventure with modular board.

Description:
"The World Cup Game is a football (soccer) game that is like no other soccer game. This is the first of its kind that closely resembles the current genre of German-style boardgames that have become so popular in recent years.

It is not a quiz game and it is not a single match style soccer game, but it covers two complete tournaments - the 1930 tournament in Uruguay and the 2002 tournament in Korea and Japan. Two games in one box. The 1930 game takes around an hour to play, while the 2002 game takes around 3 hours to play."

Publisher: BOARD TO DEATH

Players: 2-6
Play Time: 40 min - 90 min.

Description:
Far away and long ago, an asteroid slammed into the planet TAH.

It brought death, and changed the world for the descendants of those who survived.
Remnants of the ancient impact are found as seams of purple crystal imbedded within the strata of native stones. This crystal, called Neonite, possesses mystic properties. Properly harnessed Neonite can levitate objects of unlimited mass and size. Kings, and warlords, revolutionaries and despots seek out neonite, each seeking absolute control of their people and their rivals.
Massing their armies in huge flying castles, they push the borders of their realms, expanding into the territory of their enemies at the vanguard of ruthless armies.

Take control of one of 6 Races and use your flying castle to send out farmers, miners, and armies to prove that you are the rightful ruler of TAH. Gather resources, complete quests, and buy stronger armies. Rotate and move your castle (Dice Tower) on one of 4 different maps.

Align your dice tower chute with an opponent’s dice tower and deploy your armies (dice) to attack their defenses.
Earn 5 Crowns before any other player to win the game, and rule TAH, until the next War.
Can you defeat your enemies and secure your title as ruler of TAH?

6. Board Game: Ruthless 86 [Average Rating:0.00 Unranked]
Board Game: Ruthless 86

flag msg tools
Microbadge: 5 Year Geek Veteran
Kickstarting Date: June 2019

Designer: Ryan Costello
Artist: Ryan Lee
Publisher: Blind Ferret Entertainment

Players: 3-5
Play Time: 60 min

Description: Every high ranking member of the Scorp Corp said they could do a better job dominating the world than their current leader, Scorpion Supreme. When Scorpion Supreme suddenly died, the time for talk had passed.
Ruthless 86 is a dice-building worker placement game. You step into the elaborate combat boots of a world dominating villain straight out of 80s action cartoons. Recruit and train Troopers for menial tasks, or assemble them six into Units and send them on important missions around the world. Gather resources, fortify your HexQuarters, commandeer Doomsday Devices, all to amass enough power to claim the Scorpion Supreme title and with it leadership of the Scorp Corps.

We're aiming for a medium weight game with a strong theme and sense of character. Mechanically, one of the aspects I'm most excited about is the Trooper/Unit interaction. With most dice-builders, the die faces that aren't currently on a die sit on the side until they're needed. We've created a worker placement game with two different types of workers: Dice and die faces. A large part of the strategy is prioritizing which Troopers get added to Units and sent on Missions and which are assigned tasks.

We learned from our flubbed initial launch on Kickstarter that too much emphasis on the theme made it look like the game wasn't as far along in development as it is. Hopefully getting the rulebook out there and some playtest copies into the hands of trusted influencers will show we put as much thought into the mechanics as we did the theme.

One last note on the theme: Researching what the 80s thought the next evolution of technology would look like, I came across a term I immediately fell in love with: cassette futurism. You know the rooms in 80s cartoons that were floor to ceiling computer panels and monitors? That's cassette futurism.

Description:
"Natural disasters will quickly be a thing of the past.” - Those were the thoughts of Sêni Lativ, meteorologist and chief engineer of the weather department on Lightning Technologies after the latest test with his newest invention: The weather machine.

He can see how controlling the weather will change the world, but never in the way he ever imagines it. As soon as the news about controlling the weather come out in the media, a significant struggle rise over his invention. Businessman wants to make it a commodity, politicians a weapon. His company just want to sell it to the highest payout.
Tourism, agriculture, private companies, governments, secret organizations. In a minute everyone wants a piece of this machine.

Players are executives working to Lighting Technologies trying to achieve the highest place on the company board. To do that they can follow different paths, showing loyalty to the company and the dream of the scientist by working towards the benefits of the earth climate or just selling the weather services to the highest bidder.

The game is a tile placement game to build and manipulate the weather using the Machine, resource managing to feed its needs, and goals achievements.
Mechanics so diverge from action selection, worker placement and tile placement and hand management. Players will try to point the machine to complete their contracts and at the same part increase their power in business and climb the stairs of the company.

Players choose all the 8 actions available to them, and they resolve it in any order they want one at the time. The action selection is based on the quadrel created to Vinhos, and the actions are:
1. Gather resources, 2. Use Weather Machine, 3. Change machine target, 4. get a deal, 5. accomplish a contract, 6. Help Lativ 7. infiltrate a company, 8. Try a promotion

Kickstarting Date: 2021

Designer: Janna Ullrich
Artist: Aaron Fernandez
Publisher: Quality Beast

Players:
2–4 Players
Play Time: 45-90 Min

Description
Quantified is a co-operative board game set in a world in which everyone's behavior is constantly surveilled and analyzed. A player's behavior results in a social credit score, determining their position on the social ladder. Players start from different positions on the social ladder, as refugee, unemployed or employed, with unequal access to human rights. The goal of the game is to make all rights accessible to all players and to fight the implementation of totalitarian policies.

During a typical turn, players can move around the city, add non-player-characters to their network, attempt to solve so-called rally cards (initiatives that support human equality), attempt to prevent so-called threat cards (automatic, constantly approaching negative effects, such as invasive amendments, correction camps or totalitarian laws), or even simply work an official or illegal job. The trick is that not every action can be taken by every player. For example, those without the right to movement take longer to cross the city, while those without the right to free speech can't share their rally cards with others — and even the actions you can take must be taken with care as all actions leak personal data. If too much data is leaked, the players may have to face behavior analysis cards that negatively impact their collective game state!

Ultimately, by solving enough rally cards or working their way up the social ladder, every player should have access to all four human rights. Once this is done, the players win! But if three totalitarian laws come into effect before then or the threat deck runs out, the players collectively lose.

Description
Bloodstones is a fantasy wargame for two to six players featuring six different races, each with their own specific powers. Each of the six races in Bloodstones has its own mix of units, represented by domino shape tiles (no chits!). Some of these units will be unique to that race, such as Dragons to the Dragon Riders and Giants.

The aim of the game is to have the most victory points at the end of the game, which can be gained by building, by pillaging other players’ villages and by winning battles.

Note: number of races (6 or more) is dependent on Kickstarter success.

A separately available solomode by Dávid Turczi and Nick Shaw will be published by the designer.

Publisher: Cosmodrome Games

Players:

Play Time: 60 - 120 minutes

Description

Followers is a hardcore eurogame combining two epic subjects — mythology and time travel.

In Followers, you become one of the mythological gods and travel to different epochs to convert as many people as possible to your faith. Make your Followers build the Symbols of Faith in your honor, using conjoint and finite resources of the planet.

On your turn, you can place your five Avatars (in the game they are represented by miniatures) on the empty space on the board and do a corresponding action. You can also pay resources to initiate the construction of the Symbols of Space or use your special God power. All of the above actions create powerful combos, making you more and more powerful.
The game play is tricky: resources used in the Past expire in the Present and Future. A unique electronic device helps to micromanage the whole process. Instead of counting, players just need to press a button.

The winner of the game is the player, who has converted the most Followers.

Description

The Queen of Hearts from Alice's Adventures in Wonderland is an aggressive monarch with a whimsical temper. She has a nasty inclination to utter her favorite words whenever subjects displease her — "Off with their heads!" — and just like that, she suddenly needs new gardeners to decorate the royal garden...

You and your teammates have been appointed as the new royal gardeners! The job is a dangerous one. Keep the Queen happy while planting the royal garden and you will keep your job and your head. But the Queen of Hearts is whimsical. Indeed, whenever you decipher her floral preferences for the royal garden she changes them on a whim, almost as if she is itching to deliver her famous phrase. Stay one step ahead of the Queen as you fill the garden, and your talent will go recognized across the land. But make one small mistake, and the last words you hear from her might be "Off with their heads!"

Paint the Roses is a cooperative deduction game for 2-5 players. You need to use strategy, logic and teamwork to win. On your turn, you take one tile and put it in the garden to try to give your teammates information about your card and to get information about your teammate's cards. Correctly guess what is on the cards to advance. The Queen will be chasing after you, and if she passes you, she will take your heads along with her, but you win if you complete the garden without losing your heads.

Description

Towers of the Sun is an abstract strategy game in which two to four players take on the role of mystical clans each coming from their own unique and beautiful regions. They’ve lived in peace and harmony until a dangerous and mysterious mist begins to gradually cover their world, blocking out the sunlight. The clans must now compete to collect the remaining sunlight, and build majestic towers to escape the mist and reach towards the sun.

During the game players will build and navigate a changing, three-dimensional landscape. The playing field is limited and players will compete for the best positions, occasionally battling it out with their hand cards in a simple, yet mind-boggling duel of simultaneous reveal. As they navigate the board, players will collect sun crystals that other players have dropped. At the end of each round the sun shines upon a different tower presenting the players with additional sun crystals. Before a new round begins, players will score points based on which tower they stand upon and the crystals they’ve collected so far.

The main mechanisms used in the game are its modular board (mutated by the players via tile placement), area control, hand management and deductive logic (for the card battles). Beyond the strategy of building and managing their tower tiles, players must also think ahead and not be too greedy because after the scoring phase of each round the leading player will have to exercise their generosity and care by providing charity to the lowest scoring player. This adds both rubber-banding and interactivity that makes every game tense until the last sun crystal has been claimed.

The game comes to end when all of the sunlight is gone. This happens naturally, with sun crystals being collected each round, but players can also force this to happen early by standing atop a tower of 8 tiles or more and essentially “reaching the sun”.

Description

Adventure Ink: Five Factions of Filigree is a cooperative storytelling game where Players embark on an adventure in the world of Filigree. Player characters form an Adventuring Party that interacts with the inhabitants of Filigree and with each other. Each character has their own unique set of items, skills and magic. Together you will solve puzzles, engage in battles, gather loot and decide the path your story will take. As the game progresses, your character will earn Experience Points and level up, discover new locations, acquire and craft items, learn new skills and magic, master weaponry and become increasingly powerful through many different types of encounters in an ever changing world.

Adventure Ink is a write-and-role playing game. At times you will be drawing cards and rolling dice, and then writing the results of your draws and rolls on various game components, including the dry erase gameplay board. These results will assist you in role playing as your character within the illustrated settings you help create. Using an innovative character personality system and a deterministic tactical combat system, battle outcomes will be determined based on your strategies and decisions, not on dice rolls or randomly drawn modifiers. The game can be played as a single competitive/cooperative skirmish or as a cooperative campaign over a series of sessions where, as a group, you will use the accompanying Scenario book to choose which path to follow from a series of encounters. A Game Master, or “GM”, who reads the story and controls the various Non-Player Characters (“NPCs”) is not needed to play Adventure Ink.

Play Time: 45–60 Min

Description

After centuries of advancement, humanity has created a utopian society in which every need has been met with complete abundance, every need but one: room to build!

In Skyrise, players are the visionary architects who will work together to overcome this by building humanity's most ambitious project: a glorious new city in the sky itself, dedicated to art and beauty, on which each player will compete to leave their personal artistic signature, gaining prestige throughout the ages.

Skyrise is a standalone sequel to 2008's Metropolys and is based on a similar spatial bidding mechanism. Players begin their turns by placing a numbered bid in an available neighborhood. Players pass or raise the bid by placing a higher-numbered bid in an adjacent neighborhood until all opponents pass or there is nowhere available to bid. The high bidder builds their building where their final bid was placed, then begins the next bidding round.

Skyrise honors the spirit of Metropolys, while raising it to new heights. Bidding tokens now have unique numbers, creating interesting new auction dynamics. The beautiful and multilayered modular board multiplies the game's replayability. The strategic depth already offered by public and private goals has been enhanced by a new specialization system that allows players to accelerate their scoring engine as the game progresses, powerful monuments drafted mid-game that provide unique and variable opportunities to enhance or change your strategy, and special power tokens that when earned and played cleverly can create the epic turning points that will elevate the greatest builders to their ultimate victory.

Welcome to the future — the future you will build and try to leave your mark on!

Welcome to Skyrise.

"...Pack your bag, take your best gear and all notes about secret research projects in Vietnam war. Tomorrow you’re flying with us. You’d better be as good as they say you are, because Vietnamese jungle will kick your ass in no time..."

Entity is a deduction game where one player plays as an unknown being, a result of a secret government operation conducted during the Vietnam war, whereas other players play as spec ops sent to recon the area of a secret research outpost hidden deep in the jungle.

Every game is a new struggle for humans, because they are aware of the hostile presence, without realising what kind of entity might reside in this unknown territory.

BILLOWING SMOKE FROM THE NORTH
As battles wage through Skulk Hollow, a thick, dark, haze appears around Maul Peak. The smell of war wafts down through the valley as clouds of wrath engulf towns and villages. As fate spreads the smoke far and wide, destruction follows. A foxen scout, their fastest, is hastily dispatched to learn more...

GAMEPLAY
Maul Peak is a 2-player, asymmetric, tactical combat game where players take the roles of either a tribe of bears or a towering behemoth of a Guardian.

Maul Peak is a stand-alone sequel to the original Skulk Hollow, however all Guardians / Heroes can be pitted against each other. All new guardians work with the original Foxen Heroes & Map, Bears vs old Guardians, Bears vs new Guardians - you name it!

Combining the two games also allows up to 4 players to pit 2 guardians vs both bear and foxen heroes for Epic Battles.

Playing Time 40-180

Description

Fjordar is an epic, tactical strategy game for 2 to 6 players, set during the Norwegian Civil War. The game begins in the year 1130, when the old king Sigurd Jorsalfar dies. Each player begins the game as one of Sigurd's heirs or one of the other influential people in Norway at the time, who is vying for power in the vacuum left by the old king's death.

As the game progresses through the 110 years of the conflict, players will use their heirs that are spread around the board to either strengthen their influence through marriage, or to continue the fight for control over Norway. By gaining glory in combat you can also attract famous warriors to your cause.

The game is played on a modular, semi-abstract, three dimensional board with a typical Norwegian coastal landscape, with mountains, fjords and islands, without being a map of Norway. Since the board is modular, players can set up the board in a new way each time they play, giving them the possibility for endless variety.

A player's turn in Fjordar typically goes like this: You play a card with movement points and various abilities, and use the movement points to move your units and establish supplylines. If you have moved one or more of your units into an area with enemy soldiers, you and the other player resolve combat by each choosing a combat card in secret and reveal them simultaneously, with the combat cards adding extra strength to your units' base strength. What combat card is the most effective is highly dependent on each situation.
You may then use your units to perform various actions at the different locations on the board. In forests you can build new ships, churches and villages. In villages you can muster troops and collect taxes, while in the castles you can marry away your heirs or bring them home to your own castle along your supplylines.

Some of the effects on previously played movement cards and combat cards also carry over to your later turns, which means that through proper planning, and adding the right persons to your cause, you can build up to some very effective turns later in the game.

Points are scored for building new stave churches, burning stave churches, founding new villages, igniting beacons and moving your heirs between castles. The game is over when a player has reached a certain number of points, whereupon there is a final score count where you may score extra points depending on how much glory you have gained in battle and what families you have connected to through marriage.

Description from Publisher:
A cooperative storytelling horror adventure game for 1-4 players where players must uncover secrets about the town of Blackfell. The art, themes, and imagery in the game may be disturbing and are not deemed appropriate for children.

In Sublime Dark players take turns to play an action, such as moving to a new area, exploring their current location, uncovering mysteries, hiding from various dangers, solving puzzles, and collecting items and resources to help them defeat the scenario's objectives before time runs out, or before they die in the attempt.

Each scenario links to the next one to gradually reveal a larger story (and sometimes new game elements) about the world of Sublime Dark.

Players: 1-6
Play Time: 60-150 mins

Description:Continuing on from the story in Perdition's Mouth, Soul Spire moves us to an entirely new location with its own rules and problems. Soul Spire comes with three different playable factions that the players can ally with, each having their own story path that describes the events based on your progress.

Scenario 1 introduces the players to new mechanics before branching off down the path of your chosen faction. Your decisions affect how the game progresses and how much more difficult future objectives become, where even victory in a scenario for your faction can ultimately lead to another faction winning the game overall. Each faction has a mini-campaign over at least 3 scenarios, which combined with multiple hero options gives some serious replayability to a more tactical, strategic dungeon crawler.

Expands on the rules first introduced in Perdition’s Mouth bringing some entirely new ideas to the dungeon crawler style game.
