Don’t miss us either!
Our game is called Convert:

We’ve received great feedback with our title, and played it all last night with the slugfest crew (Red Dragon Inn), and they loved it.

I’m in! Backing Euphoria, so now I can say I’ve backed a Kickstarter. Any boardgaming.com XP for that?

Also, Princes of the Dragon King appears to have been cancelled. Bummer.

Also, Snowdonia by Travis & Indie Boards & Cards is ending in <2 days. Something to consider here.

Also, I’m a fan of what Mr. Stegmaier has done with creating quality games for KS and am backing Euphoria.

Even though it’s not on here, I’ve been very impressed with Eight-minute Empire. It runs very fast, easy to learn, and has become a popular in-between-games game. Looking forward to this new expansion.

While Amerigo, a game I’ve been looking forward to for some time, will wait until it’s in the stores. Apparently none of the bonuses are KS-exclusive, though you will get a game (It Happens).

Let me preface this by saying that everybody likes games for different reasons, and we all go thru phases. Princes of the Dragon Throne seems like one of those games that would make my brain hurt.

It looks positively massive though, so if that’s your thing you should get behind this game. I wish it were cheaper, but it should be on this list because people will want to hear about it, even if they don’t sponsor.

I’ve contemplated plenty of Kickstarters and never jumped in on one. Euphoria may well be the game that finally pulls me in. The gameplay looks pretty clean and fluid, and the stretch goal boosts add plenty of style to what looks like a production with high art direction standards already.

Civility. I don’t know why it isn’t already funded.

I’ve backed Amerigo… Stefen Feld is great, and Queen usually makes good games with excellent components/rulebooks. Princes of the Dragon Throne has really captured my attention.

Currently backing Amerigo but want to see the rules before keeping that pledge.

Also thinking about Canterbury which ends tonight: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/quixoticgames/canterbury. Andrew Parks is a great designer of lesser known games, I think. Ideology is really underrated and 300 is one of the better movie-implemented games. I think most know Core Worlds.

Backing Promised Land, from the makers of History of the World (Ragnar Brothers): http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2061897488/promised-land-1250-587-bc-a-new-game-design

I’m not really sure why Amerigo’s “cube tower” bugs me, but it’s really the only reason I’m not backing it.

Pretty stoked about Euphoria though.

I’m currently backing Xia, Euphoria, and Snowdonia. Xia is a gamble right now. It’s gotten a lot of online praise for the game quality and could be a pretty awesome looking game, but it’s an ambitious production from a first time designer and a one-man operation. Cody, the designer, does seem to be communicating well and is forthright in his responses.

Being a 4-player game initially held me back, but with a 5th player stretch goal on the horizon, some very enthusiastic reviews, and the potential to have some spectacular components, I decided to jump in.
