16 June 2020
Here's some you may have missed!

It's been a busy week. We get it! So many games come out on Kickstarter that it can be tricky to keep up. Good thing then, that we've had a look at some of those released this week, and popped them below for you to take a look at. 

Shelfie Stacker

This one has been talked about on social media a lot, and the reason is that it appeals to a difficulty many of us gamers have - space! We want all the best games, and once you fill the Kallax, it's then an intricate game of Tetris to fit any future additions. Shelfie Stacker has you grab'em and stack'em, to build the most illustrious board game collection possible. 


Is it funded? Yes

What’s the pledge to get a copy? NZ$60 (about £31)

When does it end? Saturday July 11th 2020

Monumental- African Empires

African Empires is the new expansion for Monumental, and it's important to note that it will not be available for retail, so you'll need to back on Kickstarter to get your copy (though there has been some dispute online about the price this entails). However, for those fan of Monumental, this purchase will bring three brand new civilisations with different gameplay specialities, and new exclusive mechanics to enhance the base game. 

Is it funded? Yes

What’s the pledge to get a copy? €75 (About £68)

When does it end? Sunday July 5 2020

The Little Death- The Game

This game was popular in France, which means we're being treated to an established game being re-released in the English Language. In The Little Death, you are in training to become the new Grim Reaper, seeking your Reaping Diploma. The game seems to have great humour, and you'll win by achieving four of the objectives provided. 


Is it funded? Yes

What’s the pledge to get a copy? €25 (about £23)

When does it end? June 18th 2020

Radioactive Bees

They said bees were dying out, but instead, they were evolving! This is a competitive tile-placement game, where you'll try to increase your bees radioactive levels to gain a mutant queen. When the gameboard has been covered, you'll build upwards, and gain points by keeping your bees uncovered, and increasing their radioactivity. 

Is it funded? No

What’s the pledge to get a copy? $35 (about £28)

When does it end? July 16th 2020

Army Men vs Dinosaurs, it may not be the park of our dreams, but it certainly packs a punch! This is a cooperative combat game, combining a love of palaeontology and military history.
