Kickstarter Board Game Thoughts (27 November 2017)

It has been relatively quiet on the Kickstarter front. Well, apart from Too Many Bones and 7th Continent’s second wave Kickstarters just finishing and the general bunch of really succesful Kickstarters going along. Here are some that have caught my eye:

Folklore: The Affliction (2nd Printing): This has got me interested in that there is now a review of the game up on Dice Tower. The review seemed to be quite positive and it looked interesting.

Sorcerer: A duel-type card game from the makers of Star Realms. It seems good but I already have allot of these duelling type games that I can play. So this is probably a pass for me but it seems good if you need a game like this.

Galactic Warlords Battle for Dominion: This is a relaunch. The first game cover looked unique. The relaunch… Not so much. It looks like a nice little area-control game that relies on card-interaction. It does look interesting and I backed the first launch. However, since that time I got Kemet, 1754 and a couple of other semi-area control games so I think this is a miss for this launch.

Dawn of Peacemakers: A quasi-war game with legacy and campaign elements. It has a pretty cool theme of trying to stop an animal-type war. The company seems to have done good games (Dale of Merchants 2 previously) that have been reviewed well, but the games advertising doesn’t quite pop on the Kickstarter page.

Ravine: This seems to be going well. The creator made the Space Team card game and the game looks kind-of bleak and simplistic for my tastes. I hope it goes well as it seems like a Robinson Crusoe or similar style game but much lighter.

Favourite Foods- Sushi

I love having sushi when I am eating out. I thought I would point or a few reasons why-

Defined Portion- There is no guess work. You pretty much know how much food you are getting.

Variety- There is a bunch of different flavours so you can have allot of different flavours in one meal.

Price- You van control exactly how much you want to spend based on how much you feel like eating.

Portable- You can buy it and even eat it at red lights. It is easy to snack on at red lights, bus stops or walking.

They are some of the reasons I like Sushi.

Also, updating the games I played, I played them all except Ethnos.

Board Games on the Too Play List

The following games are games that I hope to get to the table over the next week:

7th Continent- I have a game of this scheduled for tomorrow. Hopefully we have a win. 

Scythe- I am scheduled to have a 7 player game of this soon. I have never played this above 5 so am concerned about game time. 

Photosynthesis- A game that I wasn’t interested in until I saw the trees and table prescense. I haven’t played this yet but am looking forward to it. 

Elysium- a simple bidding type game with a push-pull between points and abilities. Once again, only played with 2 so super keen to try with more. 

Ethnos- Haven’t played this for awhile. A bit of a coin flip between this and Royals so will see what happens. 

Other games I want to try but unlikely to get out- TMNT shadows of the past, Lords of Xidit, Assault of Giants, Tyrants of the Underdark, Aliend Artifacts.
