Kickstarter Weekly--September 22, 2014

Okay, we know things have been quiet around here for a few days. But we have a good reason. Well, not a good reason, but a reason. Jeremiah had to have an emergency appendectomy! He's doing better every day, and is home and resting. And he no longer has an appendix that hates him. So we're getting back on track, and starting with Kickstarter Weekly. Let's dive in!

Featured Campaign!

Yashima: Legend of the Kami Masters - Greenbrier Games

This 2-player combat game was funded on Day 1. The game comes with unique characters with unique fighting styles. You use a Battle Deck that's also your life points. So if you lose life, you have to discard cards, and now you can't use those abilities. Sounds tense!

Knee Jerk - Knapsack Games

This party game for 4 to 8 players finds you searching for endings to weird situations. Everyone's trying to get the best ending, so you want to be fast. Each card has different words on it that can combine with the words other cards, so there are lots of possible combinations. For instance, "I feel like I'm going to pass out at the prison because a cheerleader said..." And people shout out answers.

Biomechanical Dino Battles - PM Games

That's right. Fighting dinos! Genetically engineered and biomechanically enhanced dinosaurs are fighting for domination in this deck-builder. Here it's not about just buying the most-expensive card, but buying the one your deck needs the most in order to win. The artwork on the cards is fantastic! Unfortunately, with only 17 days to go they're only about 1/10 of the way there.

Ruse Reprint - Game Salute

Nearly two years ago we did one of our first Double-Take Reviews for this storytelling game. Well now they're back with a new edition. You'll need to bring all of your creativity to bear to keep the murder from getting pinned on you! And you'll need to do it quickly, because this game only has three more days of funding left, and they're not there yet!
