Friday Tabletop Kickstarter Update – Always plenty of games

Happy Friday! Welcome to another Tabletop Kickstarter Update! For info on what is going on here, check out this introduction. This week we have a few smaller projects and we even dip into the world of role playing games. Hopefully there is something in the list that you enjoy!

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.

Skyway Robbery
Apparent Weight: Medium
Genre: Steampunk, Card based play, Set collection

Pulling me in first with its art, I was surprised to see that Skyway Robbery was designed by Philip duBarry. duBarry is the designing force behind some great games such as Courtier, Kingdom of Solomon, Canalis and Revolution! In Skyway Robbery, players are trying to get in and snag the loot before their opponents in a fantastical steampunk world. The campaign has done their homework in getting the game in front of plenty of reviewers to highlighting their work.

1750: Britain vs. France
Apparent Weight: Medium
Genre: Historical card game

I have a soft spot for historically accurate games, especially ones that repurpose old works of art. It seems like every card in 1750 showcases a different piece of fine art, including some awesome nautical classics. Not surprisingly, one player takes on the mantle of the British Empire and other the reins of the French military, each vying for superiority throughout the 7 Years’ War.

Bomb Squad
Apparent Weight: Medium
Genre: Real time, Hidden information, Cooperation

Who thought Hanabi was too easy? Obviously Dan Keltner and David Short did. Bomb Squad sets players against the clock as they try to cooperatively program their bomb disposal robot. The catch is that player’s hand of cards are facing away from them, and as a team they must give clues to each other for success. Bomb Squad seems like a tense, but good, one.

Stuff and Nonsense
Apparent Weight: Medium – Light
Genre: Storytelling, Set collection, Card game

Who can tell the biggest tale is the central theme to Stuff and Nonsense. During the game, players try to one-up the rest of their ‘supposed’ adventurers with ridiculous tales of made up exploits. Cheapass did not skimp on the artwork for the cards, they seem to only enhance the overall theme.

Veranthea Codex
Genre: Pathfinder Resource, RPG

This is a first for these Friday Updates, so bear with me as we delve into tabletop RPGs. The Veranthea campaign is looking to put together a vast setting and reference guide for the Pathfinder system. If you are at all interested, the campaign has posted some sample’s from the set for people to try out.
