Wednesday means Kickstarter!

There are some big games this week, with big funding goals met and smashed! We've included a few of those, with a good mix of other eye catching Kickstarters to potentially become your new favourite game. Check them out below!

 

Heckna

A carnival horror campaign setting for 5e D&D deserves a look, and this one has certainly been popular - at time of writing, it has just over £281,000 pledged, after having a pledge goal of £15,500. In a dark fantasy (but with fun escapades!) you're welcomed to the carnival, where we're always smiling...

What’s the pledge to get a copy? $40 (About £32)

When does it end? October 8th 2020 

Where is it? Watch out for the everlasting torment

 

Monsters On Board

Bots Up

A UK based card game this time, from a couple based in Cambridge. Bots Up is a fast-paced card game for 2-5 players, where you'll be competing to be the last bot standing! It's easy to learn (if the videos are anything to go by!) and looks to be great fun for a quick game.

Automated Alice: A cooperative Dice Game 

What happens if Alice falls down the rabbit hole (by running into a grandfather clock) once again, but upon reaching Wonderland, she becomes the prime suspect? Not only that, but now she has an automated twin sister, as appears in the Jeff Noon novel... and now it's a cooperative dice game? Well, it heads to Kickstarter! Automated Alice, including six unique case files.

Included almost solely fo the inclusion of Golden Llamas (just kidding... mostly), this is a miniatures board game for 1-4 players, where you'll seek to become the founder of a new empire.

You'll build San Francisco on the hulls of abandoned and derelict ships to carve out a foothold and rule the waterfront.
