Man vs Meeple Season One Kickstarter

fe241540e8af5ca4891ea0f172fe9828_original.jpgLike me, many of you probably turn to YouTube now and then to get reviews for games that you are interested in. As useful as a blog post may be, videos give us an essential visual component, which allows us to see the moving parts of the games we want to know about. The guys of Man vs Meeple have done a fantastic job of bringing the video review to life, with a mixture of informative commentary and visual appeal. To continue to do what they do (and to do more) they need our help. This campaign will help them to continue to produce great content for the next year, with more reviews, interviews, previews, etc. Plus backing will help them to cover some of the biggest events in the hobby, such as Origins or Essen. Besides the awesome content, backers have a chance to get some sweet promos from some of their favorite game companies. The higher you back, the more you get. Continue to support the hobby’s content creators, and give their Kickstarter a look. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/679793394/man-vs-meeple

The Game Anywhere Table by Transforming Designs Inc. 

 

download-6If you have ever run into a space issue when trying to play a board game, this might be the solution you’ve been looking for. The Game Anywhere Table allows for you to have a table that will not only support games that take up a lot of space, but a table that can be taken anywhere. It is the size of a standard gaming table with extra width to allow for players to have enough space for all of their player components. The table also features a magnetic system, that includes player pockets, card trays, card shoots, treasure troughs, and player shields. These features can be moved around and placed anywhere within the personal playing areas, providing a custom experience for everyone involved. There is also an available section for cup holders. The table is mobile, so it can all be folded up and carried away or stored at the end of the night. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/975756734/the-game-anywhere-table

Package!? is an abstract, strategy game where players try to get their packages to the different houses, in arrangements that will provide them with the most points. Players will roll a die every turn, to determine what action they will take. The rolls represent a range of possible actions, rather than a single action. The location of your packages and your pawn at the end of the game will affect the amount of points you are able to earn. There will be 5 possible locations, numbered 1-5. Packages in location one will be worth a single point each, while packages in location five will be worth 5 points each. The location of your pawn will also add points to your score as well. The game will be light weight and made from high quality wooden components. It’s compact size and quick play style will make it an easy game to play anywhere or any time. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/334979400/package-an-abstract-tabletop-game

  • 2-4 Players
  • 30-45 Minutes
  • Age 13+

Dwar7s Fall is a worker placement style game, where players are getting their dwarves ready for winter, by using the time left in fall for survival prep. The game revolves around three things: Kingdom card placement, worker placement, and take that. Players will be taking actions to secure gems, build castles and stock up on food. However, you will have to watch out for other players sending ogres to destroy your hard work. This will be the 2nd edition printing of the game, as the 1st edition completely sold out at GenCon, HalCon, and Spiel earlier this year. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/vesuviusmedia/dwar7s-fall
