Rise of the Robotariat
First, Rise of the Robotariat. The game about robots finally rising up to us pesky humans and taking over the world is getting funded so beware of robot apocalypses very soon! Fulfill your objectives, commit sabotage, upgrade your robot and rule the world! Rise of the Robotariat is 5 USD for the PnP or 40 for a boxed copy.
Another successful board game, one with a modular board is Rampaging Jotunn. Fight with your viking armies and defend your cities while the ancient threat of the Jotunn ravages through the lands. You can get this viking battle adventure for 35 USD.
Imps: Devilish Duels
Imps - Devilish Duels, a game I reviewed a couple of weeks ago and had an incredibly fun time playing is ending soon and is still in need of some funding. I would really hate it if this doesn’t make it because it is a brilliant strategic game, which I’d love to get on my table. A game of Dice manipulation and a lot of forward thinking, topped by very good looking artwork. Imps is only 15 GBP for the standard version and a deluxe version in a pretty engraved wooden box is available for 50.
ACTOP: Ancient Construct Tower of Philosopher
Ancient Construct Tower of the Philosopher or Actop for short is a three dimensional stacking game with game modes for every number of players. Build a tower from differently sized blocks but make sure it doesn’t topple. There’s two versions of the tower, a standard version for 38 USD and an extended professional version for 70. You could also build it yourself with the DIY pledge for 5.
Sad KS Story - Race Against the Horde [No BGG Link at Time of Release]
The Sad Kickstarter story is Race against the Horde of RATH. No backers whatsoever and I wasn’t really sure why until I saw the shipping costs. I know international shipping is a pain for a lot of projects but this is sort of pushing it too far. I couldn’t even get it to my country anyway (germany would be the closest I could get it to home and that would cost me more than the actual game, which is 40 USD already). It’s a shame this game isn’t produced which is a shame because I really liked the look of it. But for now, no Apocalypse… and that’s sad.
Role Playing Games Related projects:
Eternity Dungeon Stone Map Tiles [No BGG Link at Time of Release]
The Eternity Dungeon stone map tiles are very close to getting funded! It’s a little short still but that should be alright. Create random dungeons with these tiles cut from actual stone from the Vesuvius volcano. There is two colors available and the set comes in two sizes: the mini version of 24 tiles is 39 EUR and the Regular one of 48 tiles is 70.
Expansions, Reprints, Relaunches and Upgrades:
Bear vs Gorilla vs CEO vs Hippie: Extra Things
The Bear Vs Gorilla Vs CEO Vs Hippie ‘Extra Things’ expansion will end on Monday. Get the add-on for this battle card game for 7 USD or combine it with the base game for 25.
Millennium Blades (Reprint & Expansions):
Finally, Millennium Blades. The CCG-Simulation board game (which is quite an odd thing but it works) is getting its second print run done and there’s a bunch of expansions as well! I really dig the artwork and concept of this game, it looks absolutely tremendous to me! Collect cards and booster packs, sell them if you want and win tournaments. There’s two mini expansions for 12 USD each or 21 combined, add the big ‘Set Rotation’ Expansion to total 50, Get the two mini expansions with the core game for 80 and the ‘All the Things!’ pledge is 110 USD.
