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.

Players 1 - 4
Play Time 120 minutes

Description
Quantum Shock is a scifi horror boardgame for 1 to 4 players with modular map tiles, cards, dice, amazing miniatures and a powerful narrative campaign.
Players can manipulate time and space, jump between dimensions, and learn all kind of weird skills, while fighting or hidding from the twisted horrors that will infest their reality.

Characters can perform common actions like moving, searching for items or attack enemies. But they can also hide from enemies, teleport though portals or jump to unknown areas of the map.
The attack system uses a combination of dice roll and card decks, including intense fight with huge bosses.

Rotating the modular map tiles, players change between dimensions, finding new secrets and special items but also unlocking deadly menaces.

The game has a timeline that controls the turns of players and creatures. The characters can use their skills to manipulate time, adjusting this timeline and the events of the campaign.

The core game has a 10 episodes campaign, with an average time of 90 to 120 minutes each one.
All players and enemies are represented by highly detailed miniatures, including bosses and secondary characters.

Kickstarting: March 2021
Designer: Mihail Ivanov
Artist: Dilyana Bozhinova
Publisher: 89 Visions

Players: 1-4
Play Time: 45-90 minutes




Description (from the author):

"Tarot will teach you how to create a soul."
A. Jodorowsky

In Arcana Magica players use and set their own Tarot set as an army and fight their opponents with it. What you can and want to use, how you use it and when you do is crucial in this game of cards and tactics.

Tarot holds 78 cards, 22 are what's called the Major Arcana - archetypes of forces and psychological types. 56 are the standard poker deck you've used and seen so many times.

Arcana Magica is fast-paced, streamlined, 2-4 players heavy-competitive game. Players duel each other trying to muster the largest army and capture as much as they can from the opponents before the end of the world. Attacks are made using the standard set of 7 polyhedral dice.

In Arcana Magica the Tarot sized cards are Units, playing deck (poker size) is the magic points (mana) players use. Summon units in your army, use them to attack, survive until the end of the world, and become a winner by points.

Sessions last about an hour. There's plenty of game modes and optional rules that can change the game to your liking and preference. It's something you would want to play many times, not longer sessions.

BATMAN : GOTHAM CITY CHRONICLES SEASON 3

Kickstarter Date 2021

Designer: Frédéric Henry
Artist: Georges Clarenko, David Demaret, David Finch, Jim Lee, Irek Zielinski
Publisher: Monolith

Players 1-4
Play Time 60-90

Description

Yesterday, we celebrated Batman Day by unveiling an overview of the Batman role-playing game, a true declaration of love for this universe which will be explored from every angle and will offer new intrigues to those who will have the courage (or the obligation) to walk the streets of Gotham.

Today, we start unveiling what Batman: Gotham City Chronicles Season 3 has to offer when the campaign launches in 2021. Season 3, whose focus will be gameplay revitalization, comfort, and accessibility.
Here’s a taste of how we intend hitting that goal, starting with bringing in the Big Guns.

-A Total Rulebook and Missions booklet Upgrade: by Paul Grogan. Author and publisher of numerous rulebooks and owner/creator/host of the Gaming Rules! YouTube channel.
Paul is totally focused on rewriting the booklets to improve game rules accessibility and information comprehension, a reworking that will be invaluable for first time players and seasoned veterans alike.

These revised booklets will be available before we launch Season 3 as pdf’s so that our long-term fans have access to them as soon as possible and these upgraded booklets will be included in the Season 3 core game Box and available as printed copy Season 3 add-ons.

-A Solo Player / Cooperative Game Mode. Season 3 will provide you with the rules to play “we’re all in this together” or totally alone “lockdown” mode. These rules are different than those we’ve designed for the Conan boardgame as we wanted each game to continue to develop its own identity.

Whether playing as a group is your thing, or finding local players is a challenge, OR synching friend schedules is a nightmare, the solo/coop mode allows you gameplay flexibility – and it is completely backwards compatible with all the previously published Adventure mode scenarios -

You read that right! All of the Adventure mode scenarios from Season 1 and Season 2 are fully playable in this new mode.

-Additionally – After the success of meeting our reprint numbers for Conan, we’ll open up another online survey prior to the Season 3 Kickstarter so that you can help us select exactly what will have be available from the previous 2 seasons, Your votes will affect our selection, so you’d better speak up!

But that’s not all. Rumours run through the streets of Gotham, whispers of storage solutions, game aids and much more.

Because there may be other game boards, other miniatures, other adventures or game modes joining in the fun. Which part of the Batverse would you like to see Batman: Gotham City Chronicles Season 3 mark? Do our detectives have any leads or theories on this?

You’ll begin by positioning your fleet strategically across an expansive star map before waging war for limited resources across each star lane. Set-up time takes less than 10 minutes with a player reaching victory in 1-2 hours.

To help you manage your forces, you’ll receive your own fleet card where you can track your ships, their armor, and their payloads.

From there, choose from a variety of game-play tactics that fit your own command style. Sit back and search for valuable scrap, dig in behind flack barriers, or charge forward with your capital ship as you send nukes hurdling towards your enemies. Become a master of these elements, adapt, and survive, for only one can reach ultimate glory!

Description from Publisher:
Helionox: Chronicles is a solo/cooperative movement based deck building board game set in the Helionox universe. It combines asymmetric starting builds, tactical in-game deck construction, engine building, resource management, and worker placement.

In the distant future, terrible events plague the solar system against the backdrop of a slowly dying sun. 1-4 players act cooperatively as the Architects of the future, vying for influence against the Shadow Syndicate, a clandestine organization of wealthy ruthless political, religious, and corporate entities. As the sun rages and the events become increasingly catastrophic, the need to prepare for the future is all too evident. However, where the Architects hope to protect all life, the Shadow focuses solely on the interests of the wealthy.

Artist: Unknown.
Publisher: North Star Games.

Players: 2-4 players
Play Time: 60-90 minutes

Description: (from BGG)
'Legends of the Deep brings mythology to the Oceans ecosystem.

Oceans is a journey into the unknown, where you discover powerful traits that hardly seem possible in the realm of biology, and yet they turn out to be real. With Legends of the Deep, you will discover things beyond the realm of science - entire empires of mythic proportions!

Game Play
At the beginning of the game, deal 4 Empire cards to each player.

Anytime during your Play Cards phase, you may play one of your Empire cards instead of playing a trait. Empire cards have powerful abilities that affect every one of your species.

You may replace an Empire card with a new one. Subtract the cost of the old Empire card from the cost of the a new Empire card. The new Empire card replaces the old power.

Legends of the Deep is expected to hit Kickstarter in mid-2021.'

Designer: Brent Keath
Artist: Maura Elko
Publisher: Flannel Games

Players: 1-6
Play Time: 20-40 minutes

Description:
Run your very own paper company branch, while navigating the shifting economy, hiring employees, and maintaining your branch's morale.

In Paper Company, the economy is determined for all players based on a single die roll each round. The higher the roll is, the better the economy and the stronger each players' actions will perform that round. Once the economy is determined, all players simultaneously choose 1 of 5 actions based on the roll:
Human Resources: To increase morale
Accounting: To gain money
Purchasing: To buy paper
Sales: To sell paper
Recruiting: To hire or fire employees
By acquiring employees you can influence the roll for specific actions, gain benefits when other players perform matching actions, and obtain abilities unique to that employee. However, you must also be wary of how you treat your employees, as each branch has unique benefits, or detriments, based on how your employees feel about your management style.

With 6 unique branches and 40 unique employees, every game plays out differently. How will you manage your unique branch? Will you focus on one action, allowing other players to take advantage of your repetition? Will you get and keep morale high to reap the benefits of happy, productive employees, or try to make money quickly and work around the consequences? Will you focus on recruiting and fill your office with as many employees as you can, or will you try to avoid employees altogether and run the office by yourself?

Players: 2-5
Play Time: 45-60

Description:
Quote:


In On the Underground: Paris/New York, players build the Paris Métro lines or the New York City Subway lines. Each player controls 2-4 different lines, depending on the number of players.

On each turn, four destination cards are available, corresponding to stations on the map. You can take up to four actions; an action is either building track by placing one of your track tokens on the board or taking a branch token. A player may use two branch tokens to branch out of an existing line (whereas normally lines can be extended only at the endpoints). After each player's turn, a passenger token is moved along players' lines, avoiding walking as much as possible, to reach one or two destinations determined at the beginning of the turn. Destination cards corresponding to the visited stations are then replaced by new ones, then the next player takes their turn.

Players score points in two ways:

By building track and connecting their lines to various types of stations, by collecting landmark tiles (in Paris), by connecting stations across water (in New York) or at the end of the game if they have achieved their secret objectives (in Paris).

By having the passenger use their lines when moving.

After all destination cards have been drawn and all players have taken the same number of turns, the game ends.

Paris is a thoughtful map offering many options. To win, you need to strike the right balance between collecting sets of tokens, connecting secret destinations, blocking other players while not being blocked yourself, and of course carrying the passenger. Paris is the refined elder sister of the original On the Underground: London map and is recommended for experienced players.

New York is a fast-paced map reflecting the hectic pace of life in the big Apple. It encourages players to mirror real life by creating lines through Manhattan, but you have to build quickly to keep up with the always-moving passenger.

Description

Forgotten Legends : The Worm Emperor is a high fantasy game set in the magical world of Aiine. Your goal is to prepare a foothold into an uncharted territory and sustain your war effort. Find and defeat the Prince of Despair, his majesty, the Worm Emperor, by breaking the three magic seals which protect his fortress and challenge him to a deadly duel.

Lured by the promise of earthly riches and eternal knowledge in an uncharted region of the realm, the party of Heroes must battle chimeric creatures, flesh and dark thoughts mingled together by magic and molded into fierce monsters born from the depths of a dreadful mind, complete trials which will reveal the very fabric of their soul, fight, scavenge, loot and trade to survive the journey and ultimately face the abominable overlord, the Master of Lies and Prince of Despair, his majesty, the Worm Emperor.

Replayability : The core of the game is entirely player driven. Heroes decide (individually or as a group) where the game is heading, from fighting an epic monster down to trading and building new dwellings in the castle they settled in. Many paths lead to victory.

Automa System : You move, his majesty, the Worm Emperor and his acolytes are moving as well. The enemy army is already on the march to conquer the regions and consolidate the domain of despair. Sooner or later, your armies will meet.

Castles and Outposts : A game within a game. You may start the adventure from any sub-region on the outskirts of the adventure map. Once settled in, you can build new dwellings, trade in the market for items, recruit creatures, complete puzzles and more.

Unique Adventure Map : Divided into three major regions and a fourth special inner region (controlled by the Worm Emperor) and counting more than 65 independent sub-regions the party of Heroes will have the freedom to explore a uniquely designed map with one-of-a-kind characteristics. Conquer cities, acquire resources, uncover mysteries and secret locations.

Modular Battlefield : Constantly changing its configuration depending on the sub-region you are exploring. The setup is randomly created each time your party clashes with a monster or a group of monsters. Terrain obstacles, power-up spots or de-buffs areas will hinder you or help you win the day.

Along the southern fringes of Kilforth, the Ancients finalise their insidious plans and send forth the unstoppable gloom.

Description:
With no natural resources, the Government of Uruguay is concerned about the country’s dependence on imported fossil fuels. As a consequence, it is seeking to increase the share of domestic resources, of which the most feasible are biomass and wind energy, as well as employing end-use energy efficiency measures to increase its energy security. In addition, the government aims to use the intended growth of the domestic energy sector to foster its other objectives of increasing economic growth and creating employment. (Extract from World Bank Documents, CASE STUDY 11: URUGUAY – WIND ENERGY PROGRAMME )

"Toward noon, however, the sun's rays were extremely scorching, and when evening came, a bar of clouds streaked the southwest horizon - a sure sign of a change in the weather. The Patagonian pointed it out to the geographer, who replied:

'Yes, I know;' and turning to his companions, added, 'see, a change of weather is coming! We are going to have a taste of PAMPERO.' And he went on to explain that this PAMPERO is an extremely dry wind which blows from the southwest. [...] The PAMPERO generally brings a tempest which lasts three days, and may be always foretold by the depression of the mercury, 'he said. 'But when the barometer rises, on the contrary, which is the case now, all we need expect is a few violent blasts. So you can make your mind easy, my good friend; by sunrise the sky will be quite clear again.' ( Jules Verne, 1868: In Search of the Castaways. CHAPTER XVI: THE NEWS OF THE LOST CAPTAIN. )

Pampero is a hand management, card driven action selection game. Every player has a starting set of 8 cards, to be played at their own tableau, which contains two rows of spaces to activate actions on the different sectors of the board. At every turn you will have the option to play a card to the leftmost empty space of any row or to retrieve all cards from your tableau. After 3 actions a special phase takes place, Consolidation. At the Consolidation phase you will retrieve one card, the rightmost one from any row. Generate Batteries from stored Energy. Collect your Income and advance the game timer. The player with the most money at the end of the game wins

Description

Wonder down every path...
What wonders await you deeper in the garden? You might wander upon shrines of extreme beauty and peace such as the many gates of Fushimi Inari or the bamboo paths of Nonomiya. Score a path next to a shrine and enjoy its own special blessing. Joining you on this journey are two new characters, the gambler and the pilgrim, each offering a unique advantage. There is wonder down every path...

the sun's horizon;
shrines emerge from the trees;
flowers turn to light

OBJECTIVE
Your objective in this expansion for The One Hundred Torii, is the same as the normal game: earn the most journey points by expanding the garden and walking through as many torii gates as possible as you move between similar landmarks. However, playing with the shrines offers new ways to score journey points and there are two new characters to help you.

The One Hundred Torii: Diverging Paths is an expansion requiring the original game.
