Fund It Friday! February 3rd
Hello friends and gamers! I only picked out a couple campaigns for today because I had a LOT of nice things to say. Enjoy these Fund It Friday picks that have some of the best art style on Kickstarter right now too:
One of my most anticipated games for 2017 is By Order of the Queen, the follow-up game to JunKing by Junk Spirit Games. This game is a cooperative, RPG-lite card game of fighting off attackers, complete quests and fulfill orders from the Queen. Each player represents a guild looking to recruit heroes to take up arms (and fancy weapons!) to defend the kingdom and its people. By Order of the Queen features an explosion of Justin Hillgrove’s whimsical characters with the most diverse cast of heroes I’ve ever seen. My choice of heroes include a tree-stump creature and old lady adventurer with a cane and club to name just a few. I loved JunKing as an easy to learn, highly thematic game and By Order of the Queen looks to continue the tradition with a more epic and cooperative adventure.
Gamelyn Games blew me away with this game! Heroes of Land, Air & Sea is a fantasy faction game of exploration, expansion, exploitation and extermination, otherwise known as a 4X game; but instead of tiny cardboard chits and flat boring colored maps, this 4X game is exploding with color and cartoon fantasy themes and components. The units are unique 3D character minis that are organized into factions of orcs, humans, elves or dwarves. Each faction has three different vehicles for the different terrain and each faction has stacktable, expandable towers both of which are 3D cardboard-crafted minis. Heroes of Land, Air and Sea also promises a more compact, 2 hour experience of a 4X game making it more accessible to those that don’t want to burn a whole day just for a 4X game.
JUST A FEW HOURS left on this Kickstarter for one handmade Eldritch scroll perfect as a prop for your Cthulhu roleplaying campaign or as a beautifully framed piece of fantasy horror artwork. As part of Kickstarters #Make100 goal to its audience of creators, SkeletonKey Games decided to create 100 Cthulhu-esque scrolls that are individually weathered, hand painted and feature a few design variations. I love the use of symbols, the aged look and shadowy Cthulhu tentacles creeping from the top of the page. There are still 43 copies left but just a day remaining on the campaign!
I hope you enjoyed this list of tabletop games and products that we are currently obsessing over on Kickstarter.
