Megaman seems a little over-hyped and under-developed. There’s not enough there that inspired me to pledge.

Chaosmos looks like fun. It reminds me of a book called Interstellar Pig that I read when I was 13. I backed that, as well as Spurs because they slapped a cowboy/wild west theme on it — it’s very Pavlovian for me.

@Sir Gamesalot: Ugh. My wallet hates my Kickstarter board game addiction but the lady is at least very supportive of it and encourages me to back games while I can rather than regretting not grabbing them. Although when she sees me scrolling through my phone ten times a day she doesn’t accuse me of texting other women; she asks “Are you on Kickstarter again?”

I jumped on board with Tiny Epic Kingdoms, 16$ for it seems good. Fief and Fesco big Box are very tempting, fief just seems like its getting more and more value built into it.

Oh I really need to stop reading these Kickstarter news posts. Kickstarter is bad for my wallet’s health. Zombie 15′ is something I want to back, but can’t afford at the moment. That, and the wife would probably murder me.

Account Deletion, what are your reservations regarding Space Alert and Escape? I own both games and absolutely love them. Space Alert’s rules are a bit hairy to get into, but the game play itself is amazing.

Fief is still the only one that has my money. Some of these others look interesting, but I can wait until they’re at retail.

A 4X Micro-Game? I will have to take a closer look at this one.

All expansions in one box, Fresh Big Box provides that. Really for those who played the game once or twice, but had no patience liked to hunt all expansions now no longer have an excuse.

I jumped in on Zombie 15′ shortly after it launched today to take advantage of the first-15-hours discount, but have some doubt about staying in. I’ve been looking for a tense, soundtrack/timed coop, and I have a few reservations about Space Alert and Escape, so this seems like it could be great for me. But I don’t really want another zombie game, and it seems pretty likely that this will be available on sites like Miniature Market at $50 as soon as backers get their $60+ copies. I guess I have a month to make up my mind.

I’ve also been in on Tiny Epic Kingdoms since it launched… but have no qualms about staying in on it. There’s no way it’s not going to be worth $24.
