Weekly Kickstarter Round Up: April 23rd 2020

23 April 2020
Games you may have missed out on from April 23rd 2020

Kickstarter is the sweet shop of board gamers, and each week we see new additions - new games, new expansions, new equipment, new creators... It can be tough to keep up. Here's a few of the Kickstarters that have launched recently to take a look at, but remember to check back next week to stay on top!





Canvas looks to be a quite beautiful game. You’ll layer transparent cards to create unique illustrations, which will gain points based on the number of tokens they hold. There’s thousands of combinations available, and you can also bag a print and play to trial it too (though you may not get the full effect).  



Current Status: Funded

Pledge to get the game: $28 (approx. £23)

Kickstarter Ends On: Wednesday 20th May 2020

Lords of Vegas 10th Anniversary: Underworlds & Boss Bundle


From the makers of Lords of Vegas, comes a long awaited upgrade kit and expansion for the game, in line with it’s 10th anniversary. Lords of Vegas is a city-building Eurogame, where you’ll play as casino moguls, bulldozing the cheap motels of Las Vegas for ‘meccas of gambling and debauchery’, rolling yourself on those casinos for some extra cash.  The Kickstarter offers the Boss Bundle version, which is suitability a mobster briefcase containing slots for everything in the games – including an upgrade from paper money, to poker chips. The expansion, Underworld, they say they’ve been waiting to make for a decade, and you’ll be amid mobsters, thieves, grifters, and accountants.

The Great Barrier Reef Game


We’ve seen some great games focussing on wildlife recently, and this entry is a card game for sea life lovers (or just cool games, so they say!). You’ll curate part of the Great Barrier Reef to balance the ecosystem as best as possible by carefully laying cards to encourage the reef, but discourage predators. They say it’s easy to teach, easy to travel with, and you’ll be able to see the world wherever you are with it. It’s a 2-5 player game that can be completed in approximately 15 minutes.



Current Status: 49% Funded

Pledge to get the game: $15 (approx. £13)

Complimenting the recently success full Mork Borg game, Mork Borg Cult: Feretory is a collection of tables, monsters, items, classes, rules, and ideas that can be used in the Mork Borg game.
