Weekly Kickstarter Round Up: Wednesday 7th April, 2021


07 April 2021
|
And not an April Fools in sight.

As you'd expect, some weeks have more Kickstarters than others, but its fair to say this week is possibly the most jam packed. If you don't find something here of interest, there's plenty more on Kickstarter, as selecting just a few was a tricky task. As a round up though, enjoy below a selection of games new to Kickstarter this week!

Lasting Tales

Lasting Tales is an epic cooperative miniatures game, that offers phenomenal fantasy miniatures. Every player is their own hero, and the game itself is inspired by a mixture of roleplaying game, and tabletop skirmish games. You don't need to take our word for it though, as we've got a video with Blacklist Games explaining exactly what their game is all about!

Is it funded? Yes

What’s the pledge to get a copy? $40 (£29) for the core book

When does it end? April 20th 2021

John Company: Second Edition

There's no way we could miss this one, this is John Company: Second Edition, from Cole Wehlre, creator of Root and Pax Pamir! This is a Kickstarter only game, following on from Pax Pamir in a series about the British Empire, and empire- building in general. This game thrusts you into a thousand little choices to cajole for positions of power within the British East India Company, but reflects contemporary scholarship. As a second edition, every element of the game has been overhauled and updated.

Boogeyman: The Board Game

This is a survival horror game that works as a solo game, cooperative game, AND a competitive game, all whilst playing as kids terrified of the Boogeyman. This comes from the creator of Tales of Evil, (and you can read our review of it here), and in it, you'll be finding items, facing events... but those become terrifying events in the dark, PLUS there's a psychopathic babysitter to worry about too, before even factoring in the Boogeyman... This is a game that looks like it has everything, so click below to check it out in all of its horrifying detail.

SIN: A Spire RPG Sourcebook

Crime, punishment and uncaring gods in a mile-high cursed city, says its subtitle, and that sums it up beautifully.

This is the second full length sourcebook for Spire, and focuses on three new areas, introducing also two new classes.
