Weekly Kickstarter Round Up: Wednesday 24th June

24 June 2020
This week is a real mix!

This may be the most varied of all the Kickstarter Round Ups we've done. We've got a mad tea party, we've got a game going undercover to defeat a sinister global organisation, and then a game that seeks to become the sinister global criminal organisation, plus a brand new JRPG and a calming game about building a rainforest.

Things Heroes Say

This is a smaller project than many, with a funding goal of £350 - which is currently at £3,415, and we can see why. This is a collection of fantasy illustrations inspired by RPGs, as well as some phrases that have cropped up from the creators own playthroughs. 

Is it funded? Yes

What’s the pledge to get a copy? £26 for the paperback and print

When does it end? July 17th 2020

Where is it? You can check out the gorgeous artwork over on Kickstarter



Who doesn't love a peaceful game? We've seen a number of garden or plant-based games, and this adds to it - Canopy, where you'll be growing the most bountiful rainforest. You'll need to put real thought into the ecosystem you build, as you play over different seasons. 

Is it funded? Yes

What’s the pledge to get a copy? $19 (about £16)

When does it end? July 10th 2020

Where am I? Alice in a Mad Teaparty

This is a Japanese game that includes a real miniature tea set, and comes in a box set up to look like a book. It ticks a box as a nice game to own. But what's the game? Surprisingly, it's a bluffing and deduction game, with elements of what it describes as controlled chaos. The designer is no stranger to classics, as also the creator of Snow White's Apple Roulette



Is it funded? Yes

What’s the pledge to get a copy? ¥4,500 (about £34)

When does it end? July 13th 2020 

Where is it? A very merry unbirthday to you for this one!



In Too Deep

In this game for 1-4 players, you're hacking into criminal minds in the undercover operation of a lifetime. It's 2087 and governments have collapsed. You work for a secret agency to defeat a sinister global organisation, gathering intel and evidence to foil the final blot. 

Is it funded?  No, it's at 91%

What’s the pledge to get a copy? CA$65 (about £39)

When does it end? July 17th 2020

Syndicate: An Interplanetary Conquest Board Game

In almost the opposite to In Too Deep, in this game, you're building a formidable criminal empire. It's 3104, and the political grip on the Arcturus star system is starting to slip, opening the door for criminal operations such as yourself. 

Is it funded?  No, it's at 26%

What’s the pledge to get a copy? US$55 (about £44)

When does it end? July 24th 2020 

Where is it? Build your empire on Kickstarter



Kradia: Wild Hunt Festival – A JRPG Board Game

This is a cooperative JRPG boss-battle board game for 1-4 players, with class-based combat, character progression, whimsical art, and a boss battle, set in the world of Kradia. Every player has a roll or class, and two different progression routes when levelling up, which means you can really find and grow your play style. 

Is it funded?  Yes

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

When does it end? July 9th 2020 

Where is it? Join the world of Kradia in this JRPG cooperative game on Kickstarter
