Friday Tabletop Kickstarter Update – Back in the game

Hello! Welcome to Friday Tabletop Kickstarter Update! For info on what is going on here, check out this introduction. Sorry for missing the last two weeks! I was in Essen, Germany for Spiel 2014, but you will see more of that later. I know these are ending soon, but better post them now than never.

Remember that I am in no way endorsing these games, I have not played them, I have not talked to the publishers. Back at your own risk.

One Night Ultimate Werewolf: Daybreak
Apparent Weight: Light
Genre: Social hidden role game

Ted Alspach has taken the feeling and theme of the popular social game Werewolf (or Mafia as I was first taught) and distilled them into a streamlined experience that is sure to please. This campaign is for an expansion for the game, adding more roles and a bunch of extra goodies included in the stretch goals.

Apparent Weight: Medium
Genre: Cooperative, Real time, Card game

Mayday is throwing their hat into the real-time-cooperative-game ring with Meteor! Players are working under the clock to save the world from impending destruction via massive meteors. Meteor! looks straightforward enough to play with younger gamers but still seems to be packed with tension.

Apparent Weight: Light – Medium
Genre: Hand managment, Simultaneous play

Strife stood out with its rather professional looking campaign page. I was then surprised to see so much information: rules, print-and-play and a long list of reviews. Strife is a two player strategy card game, where players are trying to outthink and outmaneuver their opponents. If the game play and art is not enough to pull you in, take a look at the pledge levels. $15 gets you the game in the US.

Apparent Weight: Medium
Genre: Post Apocalyptic, Deckbuilding card game

I like that Collapse focuses on the survival part of the post-apocalyptic theme, not whatever event caused it. In the game players are competing to survive longer than their opponents. The only thing that I would be worried about with Collapse is if it is too similar to Dominion. Hopefully you can decide for yourself, they have plenty of information and reviews on the campaign page.


If you have KS topics that interest you, let me know @Scooter_TTTD

From Trading in the Mediterranean to FPS, I love games. While I grew up in a house without consoles, PC gaming and board gaming were a large part of my formative years, and continue to influence my life. In this golden age of board gaming, I have jumped in headfirst in to anything table top. As a ludilogical student, I love thinking about how games work, their mechanics, their elegance and most importantly, enjoying how fun they are.

Favorite Board Game (at the moment): Twilight Struggle
Favorite PC Game (base solely on play time): Tie between WoW and DII
