Weekly Kickstarter Round Up: Wednesday 5 August 2020

05 August 2020
We always say five - and then always find more

There were a ton of games that could have made the list this week, which seem to lean towards RPG's particularly. But of course, there are two we couldn't ignore, in Massive Darkness 2: Hellscape, and Vampire: Masquerade, the Card Game - one in which you fight the darkness, and one in which you embrace it - which both appeared on Kickstarter this week. 


Massive Darkness 2: Hellscape

We had a great conversation with the creators of Massive Darkness 2, talking about the changes they've made since the first one, and their dedication to improve the player experience even more (which you can check out in our latest issue), so we know this has all the makings of a great game. If you're unfamiliar, you'll be fighting the source of evil as a lightbringer, in this new CMON game. 

Is it funded? Yes

What’s the pledge to get a copy? $100 (about £77)

When does it end? August 26th 2020

Where is it? Fight darkness over on Kickstarter

Vampire: The Masquerade Rivals Expandable Card Game

Is it funded? Yes

What’s the pledge to get a copy? $40 (about £31)

When does it end? August 21st 2020

Supers and Sorcery

If you're a fan of superheroes, this may just be the Kickstarter for you! Portals have opened in your medieval world that bring through characters with superhuman powers from the multiverse. These people founded a city, and now you must consider answering the call for justice. 


Is it funded? Yes

What’s the pledge to get a copy? $10 (as an early backer, $15 without)(about £8 for PDF, $20/£16 for softcover)

When does it end? September 3rd 2020

Where is it? Don your supersuit on Kickstarter



There's something to be said about nature games at the moment, and it's not just because of Wingspan. It's a mixture of peaceful and enjoyable, if even a little nostalgic. Wanderhome invokes this same feeling, it's a pastoral fantasy tabletop RPG about travelling animal-folk, where you'll explore the seasons and how it all changes over the years. 



Is it funded? Yes

What’s the pledge to get a copy? $25 (about £20 for the PDF and digital supplements, $40 for a physical copy (£31))

When does it end? September 3rd 2020

Quest + Avalon Deluxe

This is two in one - an all-new deduction game from Don Eskridge, who designed The Resistance and Avalon, and then includes when you back this project the opportunity to purchase a big box version of Avalon and Quest, the big box not having plans for retail release. For its new game, you're heading into Arthurian Avalon, with a series of quests to tip the scales of evil to goods favour... but that's where you come in. 


Is it funded? Yes

What’s the pledge to get a copy? $34 (about £26 for Big Box Quest: Avalon)

When does it end? August 21st 2020

Where is it? Head over to Kickstarter to back these!


Arcana Rising

This is a drafting and engine building game of moons and magic, where you'll be competing in a competition to acquire arcane artefacts and spells - you'll want to use the moons to amplify the magic, and cast spells at the peak!


Is it funded? Yes

What’s the pledge to get a copy? $23 (about £18)

When does it end? August 28th 2020

Where is it? Test your knowledge of High Sorcery


Deluxe Meeple Upgrades for Wingspan: Oceania and Pendulum

And now for our something a little different. It's hard not to love the meeples we gain in boxes, but sometimes we know they can be a little cooler. Meeple Source are Kickstarter-ing deluxe meeples, for Wingspan and for Pendulum, though these are not Stonemaier Game products. If you love these games (or think you might, as Pendulum isn't available yet!) it may be nice to pick up some upgraded meeples to enjoy. 

Is it funded? Yes

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

When does it end? August 16th 2020

Where is it? Pick up your meeps over on Kickstarter!
