Weekly Kickstarter Round Up: April 29th 2020

29 April 2020
Games you may have missed this week

This week’s Kickstarter Round up is a bit of a mixture of styles, but many games this week have been funded already! One of the bigger games to hit Kickstarter this week was Resident Evil 3: The Board Game, which we talked about previously, and there’s been success in another we talked about, in Adventures in Neverland. Both are currently funded, but worth checking out!


For some others, take a look:


Dodos Riding Dinos

It’s hard to scroll past a name like that, and once hooked, you’ll see that it’s a dexterity racing game for 1-6 players with funny miniatures. Part of the same world as War for Chicken Island, the tradition on this island is that when the ruler passes away, the next ruler is selected in a race around the island and to the throne. It looks bright and fun


Current Status: Funded

Pledge to game: $49 (Approximately £40), and a printable version from $12 (approx. £10)

Kickstarter Ends On: Thursday, 21st May 2020.


If you want to play a kart game in board game form, this one’s for you.
