Fields of Green
Fields of Green by Artipia games is raising over 130K and counting. I described this earlier as ‘Farmville in a box’, but that might be a little disrespectful. Grow Crops, Raise Livestock and make sure your rural little piece of heaven is the best farm around. I personally like the look of this very much and I’m not alone in this apparently. Fields of Green is 50 USD and that includes shipping for the USA, Canada and the European Union.

Red Eyed Rabbit is bringing Mandrago, an easy-to-learn, fantasy based game where it’s your goal to find a rare plant (the Mandrago) in the forest to save the princes of the realm. Remember the setup of the forest and misinform your rivals, so so can be the Realm’s savior. Mandrago is 5 EUR for a PnP or 23 for the boxed version.
RPG Spotlight - What Ho, World [No BGG Link at Time of Release]
The RPG Spotlight this time is What Ho, World! A card-based storytelling game set in 1920s London that never was. Play one out of 5 characters and try to complete your scenes and goals in a setting that will spark your imagination. What Ho, World is 5 GBP for a PnP or 14 for the physical version.

Expansions, Reprints, Relaunches and Upgrades:
The Betabotz Relaunch is successful! I believe this was a Sad Kickstarter Story some time back and it makes me very happy that this time it works out! Start off as a baitbot and try to become the ultimate betabot by gathering the perfect parts and battle it out for your entry into Robotopia. The game is 30 USD or 20 for a card-only version to save you shipping.
