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

Or, Kickstarter Games that need help.

Or, more accurately, Kickstarter Games that I have pledged to and I won't get unless the funding goal is reached, so please help me get these games because I'm greedy. (But that wouldn't fit in the subject line... )

Also a good place for any Kickstarter projects that you think someone here would find cool.

Monolith (
)
Needs $1,605 in five days.

This was originally known as Order Of Professional Sorcerers (OOPS), but it didn't meet the goal then. They have redesigned it and now it looks and feels much nicer, has gotten much more pledges than last time, but still needs a push. Looks like a different take on dice and cards in a game.

Also, as I posted in the "Is there an app for that?" thread a few minutes ago:

Just throwing this out there...

There is also a way to get new sets of pink and/or gray pieces to add to the physical game for $5/color, either by themselves or in addition to any other pledge level.



Yeah, I want this done sooner than later...

Don't think of it as being outnumbered. Think of it as having a wide shot selection!

Monolith looks like an amazing game. Thanks for putting that on here or I wouldn't have seen it in time to add my pledge to it.

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

I mentioned this too in another thread, but the expansion(s) for Flash Point: Fire Rescue (KS link) are also on my pledge list. These expansions were well past the "funded" level a few hours after it started.

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

I checked out Monolith, and it looks like a very promising game. I backed it... thanks for making me dig in to the details and finding an interesting game. Admittedly, I overlooked it originally because of its unappealing box cover.

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

Nothing active at the Moment, though I am thinking about Pixel Lincoln (though that is funded right now).

Monolith, isn't doing it for me. I think I need to see more game play examples.

Pixel Lincoln does look fantastic too. I love the charm that game oozes.

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

Just backed Viticulture. Now I'm watching the countdown for Story Realms. If it hits $75k I think I'll jump on it. I'm worried how much play it will actually see, but I'm also very drawn to all the potential in this game (and all the stuff!)

This one looked interesting, but I figured since I had Vinhos, it didn't make much sense to grab this one. A game that recently ended with successful funding that I'm interested to receive is City of Iron. What do you think about that one?

I thought about backing City of Iron as it looks pretty cool. I only held off because I've spent a bit on stuff lately and need a break to get my game funds back up, as well as give me time to play the new games I have. I got a bunch of Star Wars X-Wing recently, as well as adding another $120 worth of stuff to my Sergeants Miniatures Game collection. I pre-ordered Mice and Mystics (which will start shipping out on October 8th) and have Police Precinct from KS hopefully coming later in the month or so, and I just got an email that the 2nd Story expansion for Flash Point has shipped.

So while I am very interested in City of Iron, I will wait until it comes out and by then should be in better shape to order it. I look forward to hearing about it Matt since you will get it earlier with KS.

City of Iron has a ways to go with regard to its release date. I am more likely to receive other KS projects before that one. I actually should be receiving a few toward the tail end of the year. I too received an email regarding Fire Rescue. I also look forward to receiving Police Precinct as well. Coming from a family of numerous law enforcement members and trying to earn a degree in criminal justice as well piques my interest to want to play it for its theme.

Well heck, Police Precinct looks to be right up your alley Matt.

From the updates on BGG, it looks like they are getting things moving somewhat toward the manufacturing of the game. I'm not holding my breath that it will be shipping this month, but maybe next month.
