Kickstarter Weekly - Sept. 26, 2013

It's that time of week again, that special time when we bring you some really cool games that are trying to scratch and claw their way onto the gaming market. Will they make it? Will they fail miserably? Only you can decide! So buckle up, and hold onto your hats, it's time for Kickstarter Weekly!

Featured Campaign

Keep the CrownKeep the Crown - Jamal Jamie

We've received review copies of this one, and the initial impressions are pretty good right now. It's a game that kids can play well, but also one that adults won't dread pulling out... "Oh. You want to play Candy Land... Again." The rules have many layers to increase difficulty and strategy, and there's enough randomness to keep the replayability pretty high.

The campaign ends Oct. 30 and a pledge of $40 will score you a copy of the base game. Check it out here!



BattleaxeBattleAxe - Nick Ryan

This one looks like a pretty solid miniatures-based battle simulation. There are plenty of miniatures, and different soldier and troop classes, to use as you attempt to take out your opponent's king. The game looks pretty solid, but I wonder if the funding goal for this one is set a little too high, especially for someone unfamiliar to the Kickstarter community.

It takes a pledge of $65 to get the base game, and the campaign ends Oct. 23. You can check it out here!


Robot TurtlesRobot Turtles: The Board Game for Little Programmers - Dan Shapiro

This campaign is blowing up! They've already hit over a $500K in funding and 12,000+ backers. Robot Turtles is a board game for 3-8 year olds that in some way teaches fundamentals of programming. Players play cards with movements on them to navigate their turtles on the board and to their goal.

If you want to get in on the campaign, hurry, it ends TOMORROW! A pledge of $29 will get you a copy of the game, and you can check out the campaign, right here!


Mr darcyMarrying Mr. Darcy - Erika Svanoe

In the category of games your wife will be thrilled to play with you is this nifty looking strategy card game where players take on the role of characters in Jane Austen's "Pride and Prejudice" trying to land a marriage proposal from the most eligible of bachelors, Mr. Darcy. The campaign has already hit its funding goal, but there aren't many stretch goals that look terribly intriguing, other than helping get the game out to more folks.

$30 gets you the game, and the campaign ends Oct. 17; you can check it out right here.
