King’s Forge has upgraded all the dice and are starting to work on other components. This game is going to be worth it from the dice alone at this point.

Kings Forge needs 89 more backers and it upgrades the red dice to n clear emerald type. I love custom dice, soooo… Go back Kings Forge.

Backers of the Firefly: Out to the Black game do have a chance to pick up the game AND the stretch goal cards as a preorder.

Defenders of the Realm Minion Expansions funded easily on the first day and they are ticking off the rewards and look to be adding more.

@Kaleb… yep… and Privateer. Yay! I’m saving money sort of. Of course, Forbidden Desert comes out next week, and Robinson Crusoe is just around the corner. *sigh*

Privateer just got cancelled. At least for a short time until they can fix their issues and try again.

@Granny Is it true that they just canceled the Firefly game?

Kings Forge hit all their stretch goals and are now setting new ones to upgrade the components. It looks like it could be worth backing.

I have, unfortunately, learned to be very cautious with KS. The doom that came to Atlantic City is a very good example of Buyer Beware! While there are many fine people out there, it only takes the occasional bad apple to spoil it for all. Meanwhile, a special commendation to Cryptozoic Games for stepping up to support the gaming community.

A Duel Betwixt Us looks pretty fun.

I missed out on the original Fleet Kickstarter, so I’m definitely taking this opportunity to pick it up along with the expansion. 5-6 player Stretch Goal is a bonus!
Firefly is one I’m debating if it’s worth getting now or waiting till it hits retail and has some reviews. The base game doesn’t look like it has a large selection of cards so I wonder if the stretch goal cards will be included in the base game or we’ll have to purchase them separately.

I’m surprised how excited I got when I saw Toc Toc Woodman up there being redone. I don’t know what I’d use five more copies for, but it sure sounds like it would be fun to have them.

After a budget crunch in July, I put KS-backing on hold. Seemed to work because the only two I care about on this list both started on August 1st! I am lifting the self-imposed ban to back Fleet’s expansion and SMERSH’s expansion, helping fund both before the first day was over.

I know how you feel, but with Out to the Black and Gale Force 9’s game both coming out I’ve managed to resist them until I’ve heard enough about them to know if they’re actually good games, or just licensed with the wonder that is Firefly.

Fricken’ Firefly just sucked me in.

Of course, you could probably paint “Serenity” on the side of a turd, and I’d buy it.
