Kickstarter projects that have caught our eye.
Updated on Fridays.
|Politics with Allies
Runs March 21, 2017
Goal – $20,000
Politics with Allies is a strategic card game that is best played within 3-7 players and it takes between 15-30 min playing time. This game requires tactical deployment of your cards so by the time the game is over (the last shuffled card on the deck is picked up) you are holding the ally cards with the highest valued resources or/and you are the most powerful player (the president)..
|Vampires Vs. Unicorns
Runs March 29 – April 29, 2017
Goal – $28,000
Me and my buddy Attaboy (Daniel Seifert) have been working on this game for a couple of years. It is a fun, fast-paced card throwing/tile game. He had the great idea to hire cool contemporary artists to make kooky art for it. I love the result.
I have been designing all sorts of games for many years (www.arcanejourneys for more info), and this is one of the quirky ones I came up with. Daniel saw it and we developed it into this final version, which we took around to the big publishers, Mattel, Hasbro, and so forth, who were interested and kept it for a few months each, but then final returned it saying it was almost, but not quite, what they were looking forth. So, we decided to try our hand at Kickstarting it.
The game is simple, fun, re-playable and quick. Not meant to be a deep strategy game or anything, but an actually fun, amusing experience.
“It’s time to CHOOSE YOUR SIDE!

Dungeon Digger is a dungeon building game where players take on the role of horrible Dungeon Lords ready to sacrifice their servants, the Stooges, to dig the most intricate underground dungeon and annihilate their opponents.
Dungeon Digger is a competitive comic-fantasy boardgame with a duration of 40-60 minutes, for 2 to 6 players of age 12 or more.
Dungeon Digger is a boardgame for the comic-fantasy genre lovers, populated by weird heroes, Stooges, ridiculous Lords of the Dungeons, lethal traps and humid, stinky dark tunnels!
The strengths of this game reside in:
Dungeon Digger has been designed, illustrated and tested thoroughly during two long years and now it needs your help to be printed, get real and be distributed!
|Dinner’s At 4:30!
Runs April 15 – May 15, 2017
Goal – $15,000
Dinner’s at 4:30 is a board game for 2 to 6 players set in an Assisted Living Home. As the clock begins to tick the elderly patrons in the home realize that it’s almost dinner time and they are now on a mission. Get to the window seat! Use your guile, wisdom, and even dentures to get past the others in your way, because the best thing to go with Cabbage Rolls tonight will be the view.
Players each start in the same location and then choose their path to reach the cafeteria. You will use Attack, Boost, and Event cards to hinder the other players and help yourself along the way. Using Step cards moves you down the hallways, along with some other ways that are scientifically proven to make the elderly go faster. Of course we’re talking about Tennis Balls on the bottom of a walker.
