Yay, Spielbound is listed!!!

Seriously folks, as Jim can attest, early on for Spielbound I was looking at creating a site that was easy to use for anyone to learn about games. I found this one and never looked back! Thanks for providing a great community to discuss games – looking forward to hopefully opening our doors and helping BG continue to grow! :-D

@Kaleb Woooo! Hooray for Spielbound (more on that later :))

I have to agree with you about the BGdot.

The B-other is unavoidable. It has history. It is by default the watering hole. It has everything – much like a Con. And much like a Con – it is very crowded, a bit loud, a little bit smelly, you may never exactly get to where you need to go, and mind your toes.

BG dot to me is like my FLGS. A happy little niche in the Cardboard Kingdom. It is bright and clean. The staff is friendly. The patrons are nice. I can browse without pressure. I can investigate what I am curious about. I can support what I love and listen to other’s views on the unfamiliar. I can give my chums a nod and be a little silly (and much like my FLGS still garner a few odd looks :P LOL). Best of all, I can relax for a bit and drink in the gaming. Check out what’s new and hot, chit chat about classics, or just poke about and see what I can find. Most importantly, it is a place I am proud to show off to my friends.

As clubhouses go, it is pretty darn cool, and I am happy to be a member.

Now to finish some writing – so I can get to my favorite part of the BGdot week – analyzing the KickHotsheet!

Wow, I like the idea of Board Games: Now Blind Accessible! Very cool idea, and I hope it does really well. Looks like it’s already funded with 27 days left! Excellent stuff.

Oh, and grats to Kaleb! Halfway there on your Spielbound Board Game Cafe! (Ladies: You can see Kaleb’s handsome mug on the KS page!)

Thank you Lord for not adding any new Kickstarter games I feel are must-buys… except Tactics of course.

Amen

Great opportunity to pitch a couple of bucks Rahdo’s way for making all these super-useful videos.

And of course great to see Tuscany doing so well.

@Granny Nice! LOL

The Kickstarter Prayer

Grant me the strength to accept the credit I cannot max out;
the courage to ignore the add-ons I can;
and the pennies to count when THIS MUST BE MINE!

I’m hoping Epic Resort gets a bit more love.

@HaiKulture, that’s essentially the same KickStarter prayer I use. Lately, I’ve been trying to avoid KS entirely due to budgetary constraints. Alas, like a siren she calls to me and tempts me with gaming goodness. I’m having a hard time resisting a game related to SotM. We’ll see if funds become available for that.

Rollovers:
Town Center
The Ancient World
Tuscany

Pulled the Trigger:
Super Dungeon Explore:Forgotten King

Sleuth Mode:
Epic Resort Still have to watch Dice Tower’s Preview per @garbled recommendation.
Till Dawn Tabletop Game
Big Games for Small Pockets: Dice Hate Me’s 54-Card Rabbits Watched the Diner game and it looked pretty neat.

Accio Post-Kickstartus:
Myth, Everyone keeps talking about it and I need to figure out how to get one.

I will echo the non-prayer side of @Granny’s post here… I’m just glad I didn’t add anything this week. Once Town Center and Apex wrap up in the coming days, I’ll only have 5 active backed campaigns remaining: Robots on the Line, Capes and Villains, Catacombs, SDE: Forgotten King and Sentinel Tactics. Oh, Spielbound as well… but that doesn’t come out of the “game” budget.

At one point several weeks ago I had 12 active backed campaigns going, so this is a much more welcome pace.

I was disappointed to see C&V go backwards a few days this week. I was digging into the designer and company behind it (Henry Lam/Shingo Games), and found out they just branched off from Greenbriar Games – and that the designer of C&V was the graphic designer of Greenbriar’s awesome-looking Fairytale Games. Also, Greenbriar’s website let slip that Shingo is planning miniatures as a stretch goal and plans to partner with Greenbriar to bring those to life (if we get there). Fingers crossed.

I threw a couple bucks to Rahdo, as well as the blind gaming project. Tactics got some wallet love, and i also went in on the Little Dungeon:Tutle Rock game for something to play with my youngest. It only has a funding target ok 8500, but is still a long way to go.
