Re: Kickstarter: What game(s) are you currently Kickstarting

Some of my younger pals have been giving me tech for the Pandemic Online Gaming experience. I now have Zoom, Steam/TTS ($10 on sale as noted above, although its over now), Discord and Slack for local game chatting. Yikes!

I've been resisting going high techie, but some of the games I'm backing whose Kickstarters have ended are now being "playtested" on TTS as I noted in my previous post--The Great Wall and Ankh. Apparently this is now standard for big new prototypes.

So far I've just had a pal tutor me on a simple card game Port Royale, so I can get a handle on some basic control functions.

Porkins, if you get Tabletop simulater, you should pick up star wars legion for sure. Its an awesome game and the fact that its Star Wars is just the sweet, delicious icing on top.

Re: Kickstarter: What game(s) are you currently Kickstarting

I've just Late Pledged Empire of the Stars by Adam West. I only found out about it because a pal mentioned it recently by chance. Having played and enjoyed its predecessor Galactic Emperor (aka "Twilight Impierum Lite"), I instantly investigated it!

It looks really good, with rules that are elegant and not complex, but allow for many varied routes to victory and replayability! Take a look if you like 4X Science Fiction games. The KS page has introductory and play through videos, as well as the rule book.

An old Kickstarted game I just re-bought after having owned the original is Princes of the Renaissance by Martin Wallace. The old 2004 Warfrog edition was tweaked just a bit and then replaced by the 2014 Mercury Games edition. It is available for $35 on Amazon, and the Expansion Bundle is available for $15 from the BoardGameGeek Store. If you like bidding and negotiation with a bit of war and great period flavor, take a look at it.

Re: Kickstarter: What game(s) are you currently Kickstarting

I own and enjoy Rurik: Dawn of Kiev. Its a unique game on the Rus (Russian Vikings), as seen last season on the TV show Vikings. The expansion Stone and Blade goes up on Kickstarter August 31.

Re: Kickstarter: What game(s) are you currently Kickstarting

I'm currently backing an unprecedented (for me) six Kickstarters, and about to back a seventh! I've only backed about 12 in all previously. They are:

Rurik: Dawn of Kiev Stone and Blade Expansion (to be Kickstarted in August)
Commands & Colors Tricorne: Jacobite Rising (Delivery August?)
Titans (December?)
The Great Wall (December?)
Empire of the Stars (December?)
Ankh: Gods of Egypt (May 2021)
Hellenica:Story of Greece Leaders & Legends Expansion and game mat (Sept. 2021)

All of these have KS pages (some on Preorder) that are well worth checking out, along with BGG Forums.

Re: Kickstarter: What game(s) are you currently Kickstarting

A few hours ago I backed Massive Darkness 2. Years ago I actually double pledged Massive Darkness 1 with extras and it appears there will be some decent fixes and upgrade cards for all the season 1 stuff. Heres a link
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects...f_picks_newest
I also have kickstarted Zombicide 2.0 and Ankh gods of egypt out currently.
Heaven knows I probably need more plastic.

Late pledged Frosthaven and I haven't really looked at anything else. Any suggestions?

Re: Kickstarter: What game(s) are you currently Kickstarting

The small expansion for Rurik Dawn of Kiev will launch in two days on Sept. 28. Commands & Colors Tricorne: Jacobite Rising will ship on that same date. I recently received my Matter Extractor card for Alien Frontiers Factions Definitive Edition, which wasn't until they sent this follow up (x2 cards) of one which parallels another one that was originally a promo.

Trying to budget for 7th Citadel. Backed 7th Continent and love it, and Citadel looks even better.
