One of our mistakes as first-time game designers was not arranging for previews of the game by independent reviewers before the Kickstarter project for Doom and Bloom's SURVIVAL! got under way. Board gamers like to see reviews before they back a project, and we've been lucky to have a few reviewers willing to check out the game.

Veteran game reviewer Michael Forder of NVS Games YouTube channel is the first to post a review, here are the links:

Thanks to Michael and the gang at NVS gameplays for their review. The SURVIVAL! board game project is completely funded at present and we're hoping to reach stretch goals in the 13 days left in the Kickstarter campaign.

Kae Hutchens of InitiativeTabletop.com has playtested Doom and Bloom's SURVIVAL! and left a nice comment on the project page, with a review to be posted tomorrow. Our project has now reached its first stretch goal, a set of miniatures of all base characters, with three days to go in the project.

Thanks again to all our backers!

As promised, here is initiativetabletop.com's review of Doom and Bloom's SURVIVAL! We feel that she really hit the nail on the head with regards to the game, and we're glad that she took the time to get it out before the project ends.

So I was just looking at this on Kickstarter, but BGGers might wanna get a look at the Board Game Brawl's review before backing. It's... not good, and it's difficult to see how it could be.

I can't see any meaningful or non-obvious choices here.
