Kickstarter Recap – October 12, 2018



This week was another busy week on Kickstarter with several solid choices. And like last week, the distribution of the Everything Board Game staff Kickstarter picks of the week validated the number of good choices. We had five separate games receive votes and once again we had a tie for the top pick.

The first pick is Dwar7s Fall Collector’s Edition by MAGE Company. Dwar7s is a tile-placement, set collection game where players attempt to collect gems to trade for food. The Collector’s Edition comes with an expansion and a big box to house all of the Dwar7s titles. Dwar7s is for 2-7 players and the Collector’s Edition is (at time of writing) only $105 away from meeting its funding goal. 

The other top selection and my (Nick S) pick this week is another expansion and big box option –  Campy Creatures: Expansion I and 2nd Edition by Keymaster Games. This expansion adds new monsters and mortals to the game, and adds location cards and venom tokens. This bluffing and deduction game for 2-5 players features some of the best artwork you will see in a game. I had the opportunity to review the first edition of Campy Creatures for EBG, and I really enjoyed this game so backing the expansion was no-brainer. The campaign is currently funded at 413%.   

The final spotlight for this week is Carrot & Stick: A Storytelling Card Game by this role playing card game for 3-6 players has players use bribery, threats and weirdness in a race to build their own world. Alexa described Carrot and Stick as “a zany, colorful, imaginative storytelling card game which inspires ever-more complicated and intertwined stories and brings a feeling of community to the table.” Carrot and Stick is currently 23% funded with 33 days to go. 

Other staff picks included Master of Wills – Limited 1st Edition Cloudecho Faction (currently 448% funded) and Queen Bee (currently 24% funded with 28 days to go).

With another good week on Kickstarter, we were bound to miss your pick. If we did, let us know in the comments below.
