Seriously I don't want to do a lot with Kickstarter this year. I have more games than I can realistically play, so it had better hit some sweetspots before I'll consider it. Still, I'm sure I'll back a few here and there.

Right now I am looking to back Deep Space D-6: Armada when it launches in October. I am also going to back Feudum: The Queen's Army, which is a solo variant expansion to Feudum (the creator met someone who offered to create an automa system for the game, so he's going to try to kickstart it so it can be shipped with the base game from the last kickstarter).

I'll also be considering John Carter: Warlord of Mars – The Board Game and Batman: Gotham City Chronicles, but they really need to offer something interesting beyond the franchise elements that I like.

Not Received Yet (in order of backing date)
1. Deep Space D-6: The Endless Expansion
2. 7th Continent (“What Goes Up, Must Come Down”)
3. Gloom of Kilforth (base game)
4. Gloom of Kilforth Expansions
5. D-Day Dice: 2nd Edition
6. Wings of Glory: Tripods and Triplanes

Received (in order of arrival)
1. Triplock
2. Tortuga 1667
3. Baseball Highlights: 2045 Expansions (Ballparks; Home Cookin'; Double Trouble)
4. Rising Sun
5. Zombicide: Green Horde
6. Saloon Tycoon: The Ranch Expansion
7. 7th Continent (base game)
8. Renegade
9. Zombicide: The Green Horde stretch goals
10. Nemo's War: Nautilus Upgrades Expansion Pack
11. Tiny Epic Defenders 2nd Edition & Tiny Epic Defenders Dark War
12. Mint Delivery
13. Feudum: The Queen's Army
14. Too Many Bones: Undertow

The way it looks like a book sold me on this. Plus, it plays up to 9 players, and I don't have a lot of high player count games.

I also added Salem 1692 as an add-on.

Estimated Delivery Date: August 2017
Arrival Date: August 29, 2017. Cutting it close, but we'll call this on time!

I hope this one doesn't go nuts like Zombicide: Black Plague did for me. But it does look like a great game.

Right now I am in for the Daimyo Pledge ($100) plus the Metal Coins ($20), playmat board ($30), and Dynasty Invasion for a total of $200.

Rising Sun Core Box
Phoenix Exclusive Monster
All unlocked Stretch Goals

Estimated Delivery: April 2018

Update 1: Good news! They are ahead, and should deliver in February 2018!

Actual Delivery: January 22, 2018! Wow! Super early!

Backed the new expansion for Saloon Tycoon. Everyone who plays this seems to really enjoy it, and I have fun with it, so this seems like a natural to get - plus it's only $23.

Estimated Delivery: December 2017.

Update: Delivery delayed until February/March 2018

Arrived: March 17, 2018

I backed for the mini-expansion, The Endless Expansion. An insurmountable threat has invaded the galaxy. The Endless Expansion is a mini-expansion consisting of a whole new threat deck compatible with the original ships... and for $6!

Should ship: December 2017.

Update: May be delayed until January 2018

Update II: January or February 2018 is a more realistic timeframe.

Update III: No idea when this is arriving. Supposed to arrive in port mid October, with delivery sometime after that.

Not so sure about this one, but it has solo play, a cheap price, and I like their other games, so right now I am backing it. Apparently, it expands on the lock-picking mechanism from Too Many Bones.

I got the early bird first-shipment option. I also added the Factory Solo Pack and the Royal HQ Purchasable Add-On. I'm not much for print-and-play (I don't have a printer), so having a physical copy is a huge bonus for me. I also added on the Deluxe Playmat. Because I ordered the two solo packs, I also get Triplock: The Royal HQ Solo Pack.

Should arrive August 2017.
Picked up at Gen-Con, August 18, 2017.

The add-ons arrived 1/18/18.

I've been looking for a good Cyberpunk game (I really wish Netrunner had a solo option - or a 3+ player option, because I never seem to get to play it because it only plays 2 players, and that game really grabs me). This one plays solo and up to 4 players, so... Yay!

Kind of excited about this one. Wasn't on my radar at all - saw Charlie backed it - but so happy now!

Due: February 2018
Arrived: May 8, 2018

The solo rules to Feudum! Really happy they added this - it adds a lot of value to the game I Kickstarted last year (and was a bit hesitant about).

I liked his other game, Mint Works, and since this was just $10, why not? No solo ability, but at this point I have a ton of solo games.

An unexpected backing by me. Was kind of interested in it before, but held off, but saw it available again (with an expansion) and Charlie made a good point - it won't hit retail, so if I don't like it, I can probably sell it at a profit. That sold me.

It does have an interesting buzz surrounding it... (and I hope it comes with the Frankenstein cards from the first Kickstarter - I almost backed that one JUST because of these...)

Includes The 7th Continent: The Flying Roots, The 7th Continent: Fear the Devourers, The 7th Continent: Facing the Elements, The 7th Continent: Comfort Creatures, The 7th Continent: Path of Repentance, The 7th Continent: The Icy Maze, The 7th Continent: The Forbidden Sanctuary, and The 7th Continent: Swamp of Madness.

I added two add-ons: the extra dice and the cartographer's notebook.

This pledge level will be delivered in two waves: the base box in March 2018 and the Expansion “What Goes Up, Must Come Down” in October 2018 March 2019.

Edit: The base game arrived 4/13/18 (Friday the 13th!). And it did include the Frankenstein (and HP Lovecraft) cards!

Another one I wasn't expecting, but saw it was reprinted. I like the art, and the two games Charlie played made it look interesting.

After this, I am planning on getting the second printing of D-Day Dice, and I hope that's it for Kickstarter this year.

Anyway, backed this for the original game, plus all the new expansions: it includes the Encounters Expansion, Dark Gloom Expansion, Pimp My Gloom Expansion, and a copy of Gloom of Kilforth.

The game is expected in the first half of 2018, and the expansions in the second half.

I like the character with the wolf (Duster), although the art isn't good (how is her ear behind the wolf's head, but her arm with the sword, which is behind her head, in front of the wolf's head? That's an impossible pose).

Wasn't initially going to get this, as I still haven't played the base game all that much to justify spending another $200 on it, but then decided, why not? By the time the game arrives, who knows how much I would have played it?

I have five Kickstarters running right now (four of them are games). My plan was to have less to do with Kickstarter this year. That didn't work out...

Includes:
Adventure Map 2.0
Add on Character: Gasket.

Add-ons:
Waterlogged Liberation Logbook
Premium Health Chips
Age of Tyranny Campaign
40 Days in Daelore Encounters
Ally Pack

Should arrive June 2018.

Arrived September 24, 2018

The stretch goal of the Red Baron's final plane did me in. Had to have. Damn. Well, I liked War of the Worlds, so not too bad for me to buy this, and with Victor moving away (I was just going to let him back it and play his copy), this works, I guess.

Invasion pledge. Delivery in July 2018 January 2019.
