Kickstarter Recap – October 19, 2018

This week’s Everything Board Games staff picks was wrought with controversy. Words were said, GIFs sent, friendships strained.

Ok, that was a bit hyperbolic, but we did have some staff members (myself included) that refused to play by the rules and voted for more than title this week. It’s anarchy, but with the quality of debuts this week it felt necessary.

With staff members taking on the philosophy of “vote early, vote often”, we had 12 different titles receiving votes for the Kickstarter game of the week. So, without further ado (and in no particular order), the Everything Board Games staff picks of week for of October 15, 2018. 

First up is one of my picks, Dreams of Tomorrow by Weird Giraffe Games. Dreams of Tomorrow is a set collection game for 1-6 players that plays in approximately 45 minutes. In this game, players take on the role of Dream Engineers that are working to weave together dream fragments that can be sent back in time to manipulate action spaces and player abilities. With some stunning surreal artwork, and variety of game modes, this game is sure to frequently hit the table. At time of writing, Dreams of Tomorrow is currently 92% funded with 21 days to go. 

The next pick is Tidal Blades: Heroes of the Reef. This dice management, worker placement game by Druid City Games is currently 361% funded and for good reason. The game looks fantastic – the art and components are stunning (miniatures and squishy fruit), but the game is more than a pretty face. The game appears packed with a strategic depth that is on par with the presentation. 

Another popular pick (and another one of my picks) this week was Circuit Breaker by Freshwater Game Company. Circuit Breaker is a tile placement, set collection game where players are attempting to rewire their house for a party, and hookup various appliances. One of the twists to the game is that each player can deploy a mouse to prohibit the actions of their opponents, and secure items for themselves. A game for most all ages and player types, Circuit Breaker is currently 18% funded with 28 days to go.
The final highlight of the week is RB8: Retro Baseball 8-Bit by Swanky Turtle Games. If you ever played RBI Baseball on the original NES, get ready for a heavy dose of nostalgia as you will instantly recognize the art and graphics used in this game. In RB8, players can compete with one of 16 teams, or draft their own teams using a point value player system. This head-to-head game for two players is currently 21% funded with 24 days to go. 

Other titles receiving votes and worthy of recognition include: Chartered: The Golden Age (122% funded), Processing: A Game of Serving Humanity (81% funded), Volfyirion (253% funded), Petrichor: Honeybee (157% funded), Cloudspire (877% funded), and Dead Sprint (21% funded).
