Featured Campaign!

Luchador! Mexican Wrestling Dice! - Game Salute/Backspindle Games

The first edition of Mark Rivera's Luchador! was introduced last year and has been enjoying some raging success over on the geek. Firestone played it with his kids and they loved it. Well it's back for another round in the ring, Backspindle and Mark have been listening to the feedback and made tweaks to the game and made this Mexican, wrestling, dice roller even better than before. The game comes with custom printed dice, cards, tokens, and a playing board--all the bits and pieces you need for a good old-fashioned masked throwdown! There's still plenty of time to tag in on this one.... see what we did there?

Krash Karts: The Table Top Kart Racer! - Sean McDonald

Krash Karts is a build-as-you-go racing game that has players racing toward the finish line in a course that is...well, built as you go! Krash Karts is already funded and racing past stretch goals to allow more players to join the game, and there's still plenty of time for more goals to be unlocked. Like most race games, this looks like it has great potential for nail-biting tension between friends.

Thy Realm - Steve Klein

In a mixture of mechanics Thy Realm is a miniatures warfare game that uses cards in bases as the miniatures. This allows players to quickly assemble an army, and quickly reference stats to begin gaming much more quickly. There's not much time left to get in on this one, but the campaign has funded so you will get the game if you choose to back it. The artwork on the cards is really awesome, and this is a very unique spin on miniatures warfare--and it's inexpensive to get in on!
