@HaiKulture, I think I fixed it, some games weren’t “tagged” in the backend as being kickstarter games. Now I just have to wait until it refreshes to see if it worked :)

Hmmm…it seems the ‘Open Campaign’ list isn’t updating itself with the new entries into the library

Bullfrogs is so darn cute. My son is going to LOVE it! I just added my pledge to it and I hope more people will sign on so it gets made. ^_^

Area 1851 enters the all important Final 48 and keeps chugging along Cowpunk style like a steamhorse. This unique game of sorta gadget building and kind of worker placement has unlocked quite a few bonus cards along the way and some nifty ‘scoring saucers’

@Granny – yup – how about that Catacombs? It just keeps on flicking the funding and stretch goals up and up. While I would have been happy if Soloth had its own campaign somewhere down the line when the plastic wasn’t running so hot – I couldn’t resist an all-in either. Too many new heroes and monsters to pass up. This set is going to be better than the original IMHO

My guess is a lot of people here are going to want to get a copy of Dig Down Dwarf. It’s only up for two weeks…

Well, Cavern of Soloth expansion has been added as a pledge level to Catacombs. It’s a bit steep at $110, but it includes base game and some of the monsters from the smaller expansions. I was the third backer in what will probably be quite a few to help unlock even more extras. This is probably my favorite dexterity game. You owe it to yourself to check it out.

Edit: I just upped my pledge to they Witch Level to get it all! This is not for the feint of heart. I do declare! I may need anotha’ mint julip.

Sentinel Tactics unlocks a new Stretch Goal – bringing Sentinel Fan Favorite Unity into the mix. Game content grows with her card set, tokens, and mini. What shadowy goal looms next? Most likely her golems – another huge mini unlock.

Lazy Kickstarter Brunch was thankfully quiet this morning!

The only thing that sort of jumped out at me and gave me a poke was Allegiance:A Realm Divided so I put that on a watch.

I know many of you have children between wee and twee, so now things like Beastie Bash and The Pirate Deck jump out at me as I scroll through the pledge market. Both look very light-hearted and fun for a rainy day. Pirate Deck has metal coins! Shiny!

And it must have been a month because Among the Stars is back on Kickstarter???? So if you missed this space station card drafter now is the chance! (…or June…or most likely in September…or…) :)

Wow! Epic Resort really had a lot of Turkey Lurkey Remind Me mileage. Things really jumped for them during the Final 48!

I wish I could back at least half of these. The Bullfrog game seems very cool, my son would love it. I’ll have to see if we can help them get funded. ^_^

Thanks Hai! I hope you and yours had a terrific Tabletop Day. I managed to not spend anymore money… as I already have most of the games on sale… plus, a large portion of my funds are earmarked for Kickstarter. I am a broke but happy gamer.

@Granny That was a wonderful post!

Yes Kickstarter – you do well to play the Cabin Fever Game. Come May you’ll find me dancing in the sunshine.

Between The Boy and myself – it is scary to think how many projects we’ve backed. I’ve been ‘playing the supporter game’ for a year and Mr. Self-proclaimed Kickstarter Speculator for probably a year and a half before he foolishly showed it to me. So many projects – in production, in maybe production, in radio silence, and of course, so many updates about being really,really sick for 3 months while moving and having several babies. (Note to self: Never become a First Time Developer as I will suddenly become extremely fertile and then get a dose of the mysterious Production Phase Plague)

But this past holiday season – quite a number of projects began rolling in. Things we had forgotten about. Among the Amazon boxes arriving on our doorstep for family and friends – each week it seemed there was a little surprise for ourselves. A mysterious little game,almost forgotten, to unwrap and sort and play and judge. I dubbed it ‘Kickmas’ .

So don’t worry Granny, you may feel like a crow now – but come the wintertide, you’ll be a-ravin’ ;)

Today, I was walking to the bus stop to pick up my youngest when I noticed a crow being attacked by a much smaller bird. My guess is the bird was protecting its nesting site. It’s early Spring here in Oregon, and the birds are trickling in as the temperature rises ever so slowly.

For whatever reason, the revelation Spring is here, along with more sun and longer days, got me thinking about gaming this Summer. It’s always a tug of war between enjoying the great outdoors, and getting to play all the wonderful games I want to play. Having two boys, I struggle balancing our love of hiking in the wilderness with our love of sitting at a table playing with cardboard, dice, and tiny plastic minions. In some ways, rainy days make life easier.

This brings me back to crow and angry bird. I’ve been ordering a lot of new games lately… many on Kickstarter. The fact these games will most likely be arriving during winter is quite nice. However, I can’t help but feel a little like that crow, sitting on a wire, minding my own business, while a little angry bird called Kickstarter keeps attacking my wallet for no apparent good reason. I know I’m an easy target, and I do love eggs… but for the love of all that is holy… stop with all the cool games already!!!

I backed Epic Resort, and I’m feeling vulnerable right now. It’s Rahdo’s fault. Fricken’ birds.
