October Kickstarters 2015

October Kickstarters 2015

It is November now and it means that it’s time to remember our kickstarter reviews of October! This time the genres are very opposite because you will find here a steampunk, gangster style game and so on… Let’s roll!

Road to Infamy

Road To Infamy

Current status: pledged

This is a gangster style board game. Its gameplay is pretty straightforward and vicious. It is very different from other card games because all the turns are made simultaneously. Nobody waits for opponents to make a turn and nobody knows in advance what actions they take. Special cards allow you to bribe the police, buy contraband and hire gangsters with different skills.

This game has gained 18,000 $ which is more than 450% of their goal! Well done! It’s an incredible result.

Mech Defense

Mech Defense

Currents status: 4% pledged

It’s a cooperative board game where you and your friends compete for a little mechanized mercenary squad called Crimson Fist. You are trying to protect the only supply bridge which leads to the city of Kelmova. The game uses over 500 cards to change the complete game process with every enemy killed, each skill acquired, and each explosive used.

This game gained 6,337 $ out of 100,000 $ at the moment and there are still 13 days to support this project!

Src:Card

Src:Card

Current status: 70% pledged

Src:Card is a card game for any person who likes (or at least does) programming. But it doesn’t mean that you can’t start the game without programming skills. Its rules are rather easy and highlight the basic concepts of programming and hacking. During the game, every player uses his cards to both reinforce his cybernetic core by adding firewalls and nodes and defeat that of his opponent.

Src:Card has gained 10,973$ out of 12,000$ and there are still 5 days to support this project to reach success!

Fame by Frame

Fame by Frame

Current status: cancelled

This board game is about show business and you are going to take part in the backstage lives of directors, agents and actors. Have you ever dreamed of a star on the Alley of Fame? Have you ever wanted to be a director of many films? If so, this board game if for you. Four director cards, twenty actor cards, and seventy-six agent cards will make your own world of show business. Agent cards help you to hire the actor cards and actor cards have different counts of victory points.

Unfortunately, the campaign was cancelled and it pledged only 754$ out of 3,500$ and it’s cancelled…

Steamcraft

Steamcraft

Current status: pledged

This is a steampunk card-based board game. In addition to the original subject, the game has mechanics unlike the most deck building card games (like battles and sabotage). For example in the battle mode, rules of the game drastically change. Units start attacking each other. The economical strategy turns into a wargame. All the game takes place in a world of Cobalt where brass became the most valuable resource.

As we can see this game is successful! 237% of their pledge has been reached and it’s $20,312 out of $8,800!

The Scythe

Scythe

Current status: pledged

The action takes place after a great war around a monstrous Factory. The Factory that has once produced many destructive machines is now silent. Fires and ruins separate its massive buildings from the outer world. However, five strongest nations of Eastern Europe sends their legendary leaders towards the Factory. Each one of them has its animal companion, a few territories and four battle machines. Polania, Saxon Empire, Crimea, Nordic Kingdoms and Russian-Vietnamese Union will fight to control the Factory and adjacent territories.

This game has pledged an enormous and absolutely the craziest money! 1,284,546 $ out of 33,000 $! It’s the new record!

Witty wars

Witty Wars

Current status: 1% pledged

The board game is funny and interesting for any age. You can play it being 0 or 5000 years old. In both cases, a player can even meet some familiar people in the game because cards represent historical figures of different ages from ancient times to our time. There are even some Stone Age personalities. We may say that they are historical figures too because it will be troublesome for you to disprove it even if you are an archeologist.

It’s time to support this quite decent project because it pledged only 27$ out of 3,000$! Hurry up!

Don’t Die!

Don't Die

Current status: relaunched

Don’t Die! Of course, the life is full of hazards… Failed scientific experiments, medical malpractice, zombie attacks, and natural disasters can cause sudden death… Well, nobody is going to live forever, but at least you should die fewer times than anyone else sitting around the table.

This October we had 8 kickstarter projects reviewed and all of them are absolutely awesome and they suit for every age! Which one is for you? That’s for you to decide!
