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

  • 2-4 Players
  • 5-10 Minutes

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

Do you like solving puzzles and mysteries? Do you want a challenge for you and your friends and family? The Game Room just¬†might be what you have been waiting for. The Game Room is a puzzle adventure that you can host at home and it can be played two ways: Tabletop or Live Action. You and your friends will step into the shoes of a hot-shot news reporter working to make sense of a series of puzzles and clues, all to get an exclusive¬†interview with a murderous mad man. Black Toad will provide prop tutorials, print packs, a Tear-and-Play package, and there will also be access to a Game Master Portal (all based on your pledge level), to help you host the perfect evening of mystery. Also, if playing in person isn’t your thing, you can even play online. The game creators have also hidden a web of puzzles within the content of their Kickstarter page. Scroll to the bottom of the page, read the instructions, then¬†work through the clues to solve a special message. Email them your answer and if you get it right, you could be featured on their Facebook leader board. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1869540351/the-game-room-a-puzzle-adventure-you-host-at-home

Starcade is a small game with a lot to offer. There are three game modes: Solo, Player vs. Player, and Co-op. The game is different for each mode of play– different rules, different goals. In the Solo mode, you fight waves of alien drones, in PvP you face your fellow pilots, and in Co-op, you work together to take down the Mega-Mothership. The game is super small and compact, making it easy to travel with. The game includes 5 double-sided cards, 26 double-sided tokens, 6 dice, and a rule book. There is also a “bring your own dice” option as well. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/neverpeakgames/starcade-an-arcade-style-micro-game-for-1-3-player
