Weekly Kickstarter Round Up: Wednesday 30th June 2021

30 June 2021
Here's what you may have missed

After a few crunchy games in the last few weeks, we're heading for the lighter side! Enjoy expansions, standalone sequels, and reprints this week, with some final options for print-and-play fans, and if you like an escape room, try escaping this one...


DCC Dying Earth

The Dying Earth was a world created by Jack Vance, telling of a fictional future at the end of the world, where magic is indistinguishable from technology, and this Kickstarter funds the production of a deluxe box set, which is fully licensed. It will include everything you need to get started, plus six new adventure modules to get started in this world– though you will need to own a copy of the Dungeon Crawl Classics RPG to lay the foundation.

Villagers: Shifting Seasons

Villagers is back on Kickstarter, now with a brand new expansion. This is a card drafting, village (tableau) building game, that sees you trying to create the best village you can from the cards available. We rated the original game a must-play, and the new expansions brings additional modular options, including a new solo mode, a new suit, additional cards, and seasons cards to be placed within the stacks above the road. Charlie described it so far as 'More of what we love about Villagers', and you can see her explaining some of the original, and the expansions changes, below. 

Is it funded? Yes

Tranquility: The Ascent 

A standalone sequel to Tranquility, this is a cooperative game where you're going to work together to scale the mountains before your time runs out. You'll create a pyramid shaped grid from the base to the summit, but must lay your cards carefully, as it won't always be straightforward to do so.
