Meg’s Radar #19

Standard

Hey everyone! It’s almost turkey day! In my house this means lots of delicious food and games with my family. I’m looking forward to testing out some of the newer games I have received from KS with them. What are you planning on playing over the holiday weekend?

Anyway, here are a few different projects to check out. Enjoy and thanks for reading!

Node by Marius Messerschmied & Co.

  • 4-6 Players
  • Age 14+

With the fast paced world we live in today, we don’t always have time to truly get to know the people around us. Node looks to change that by combining gaming and honest conversation. Node is a card-based game where players will build upon a starting node with their cards, all while answering and discussing meaningful questions along the way. However, BSing is highly frowned upon, so if you think someone is laying on the BS, you can play the BS card on them. The first player to be rid of all of their cards is the winner. This is a simple game, and at its core, it aims to bring us closer to the people around us, by connecting in person, rather than over the internet. Get to know new friends and coworkers, break the ice, or use it for team building– the choice is yours. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1448632996/node-ask-meaningful-questions

  • 1-4 Players
  • 20-30 Minutes
  • Age 8+

Robots Love Ice Cream is a semi-cooperative card game based off the hit mobile game that shares the same name. In the game, players will travel to different planets to face Spinston and his robot pals. Essentially, you will take control of an ice cream truck and use weaponized ice cream to take down enemy robots. Defeated robots will drop Sprinkletonium, a powerful element that you can use to upgrade your weapons. Work together to defeat the robots, defend your ice cream, and save the world (s). If you’d like a better idea of the game, check out the preview from Man vs. Meeple.               https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/378405153/robots-love-ice-cream-the-card-game-0

  • 1-4 Players
  • 40-75 Minutes
  • Age 12+

You may remember this title from one of my earliest Meg’s Radar posts. After obtaining new art and revising their campaign, Gaudete Games is bringing it back to Kickstarter! Clash d’Ardèche is a strategic, Euro-style game where players take on the role of a campground owner vying for customers in the French highlands. Players use upgrades, advertisements, and bribery to make their campsites the most appealing. Each player also has their own secret win condition. The game combines worker placement, card drafting and set collection to keep strategy high and luck low. Fans of bluffing, secret agendas, and classic style Euros, will want to check this out. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/117402901/clash-dardeche-campground-tycoon
