Four Kings, One War! [No BGG Link at Time of Release
Four Kings, One War is a 4 player variation on chess, which you can play on either one of two quote-unquote “boards”. Not quite sure if the formula of chess needed improvement, but I must say the 3d board does indeed look very, very good! I didn’t mean to bash it btw, i just like chess as it is and have no clue how this game would work out, it might just as well! The standard Package pledge is 349 NZD and the Battle of the Bridge (which is the two board combo i was talking about) is 599. Both come in prestige models as well!

Texas Hold'em StrataCards
Stratacards is a deck of self-playable poker cards. It allows you to play Texas Hold-em poker by yourself or your friends anywhere, anytime. A clever variation on the well known poker classic so it emulates the game truthfully but with double-sided cards… it’s a little hard to explain in a couple of sentences so check it out for yourself! Stratacards are 10 USD per deck.
Superhero Solitaire [No BGG Link at Time of Release
Superhero Solitaire is is a powered up version of solitaire filled with superheroes and villains! It offers unique variations on a game we all know and probably played during some spare (or not so spare) office time. Save what you can in Superhero Solitaire! It’s 15 USD per deck (i believe there’s several) but the single decks can only be shipped inside the U.S.

Brass Dog Games is back on Kickstarter with their new game: Poisoner’s Pour. A bluffing game of second.. And third guessing your choices on your way to get the gold!
