Kickstarter Weekly--July 10, 2014

With all the excitement last week we didn't have time to write up our Kickstarter Weekly piece. Well rest assured we haven't abandoned our weekly look at some of the hottest, coolest, and mildly dubious Kickstarter Campaigns. So with that, let's jump in!


Featured Campaign!

Unpub 5 - Darrell Louder

It only makes sense that Unpub would be on Kickstarter, since many games displayed and discovered at Unpub often find their way to Kickstarter. Don't know what Unpub is? Check out our interview with Darrell Louder the coordinator of Unpub! He shares details of the past, and plans for the future, of Unpub. Every little bit helps on this one, and there are some cool Unpub merchandise levels as well!

Fistful of Dinero - Magic House Games

In Fistful of Dinero players take the role of an old west Poker player who's sitting at a table when everything goes wrong! Fistful is a mid-range filler-type, party game that will have players throwing chairs, grabbing chips, and even shooting it out. Looks like there's some player elimination involved with this one, but plenty of strategy as well.

Start Player Express - Bezier Games

How many times have you read a very non-specific "randomly choose a starting player" directive in a rule book? Not much help. Start Player Express is a quick, easy, random way to determine who the "randomly selected starting player" is. One roll of the dice and you're off and running! There are also some cool add-ons available in this campaign... It's cheap and sounds pretty fun--definitely worth a look see!

Mouse Guard: Swords & Strongholds - Luke Crane

Themed on the Mouse Guard comics and graphic novels, this is a project that will be a short run of high quality components. It appears to be a labor of love for the fans of the Mouse Guard universe. The game itself is a quick-playing, 10- to 20-minute card and board game. It looks like a nice addition to any filler collection.
