Boardgames in Blighty Kickstarter News -Battle Arena Show from Koti Games is live
Not my type of game personally, but its European and EU friendly and I know some of you may be keen so here is a note that I received from Koti Games that I can share with you.
We are Koti Games, a company founded by an enthusiastic group of professional entrepreneurs. Together, we have over 30 years’ experience working in leading companies in the videogame industry.
We just launched the Kickstarter campaign of our first game, Battle Arena Show:
Battle Arena Show is an innovative board game inspired by the style of MOBA (Multiplayer Online Battle Arena) videogames. This kind of board game has been demanded by the community of MOBA videogames a long time ago, so we decided to make it a reality, and we believe that will be big news for all MOBA gamers. The game includes high-detailed miniatures inspired by the archetypes of cinema and TV. We will launch a Kickstarter campaign at April 7th.
You can take a quick look at our project by watching the following video:

Among Nobles attempts to be the first Board Game published on the Danish Kickstarter page!
I received this note from some Danish guys…
Among Nobles the first board game to succeed on the Danish* Kickstarter page and mention us in your blog :-)
* yes, the game is Danish, not British. It do feature loads of British nobles though – more than any other country.
Please help us to make Nobles is a self-published eurogame about establishing and expanding a family dynasty in feudal Europe. Players control some of the most iconic and influential figures in the European history. Using their unique abilities cunningly is crucial in the fierce competition between the leading noble houses. The game is won and lost in the intricate interaction between war, strategic marriages and influence at court. Each player starts with a lord and his lady and will bring generations of their family to life through birth and marriage.
Ok EU friends, time to have a look at an EU Kickstarter project that will be affordable. Although not a Euro player, I actually might be willing to play this one. British history is part of the game so UK friends take note.

Boardgames in Blighty Kickstarter News 15/03/15 – I am VERY SELECTIVE but if I had the cash I’d look at…
Yes, if your project makes it to my posts, its because I would probably play your game and consider buying it. I am very selective and generally won’t look at Euro’s at all or unoriginal bandwagon rehashes of same old themes. Although, you never know…
Holy Roman Empire
Holy Roman Empire is a political and military game of the 17th Century struggle for empire that plunged Europe into one of its longest and most destructive wars. Up to six players control the major dynasties of the era, fielding armies and navies and engaging in diplomatic intrigue and bribery to decide who will exercise control over Europe.
Looks good. Pricey BUT it is now EU friendly so worth a look…
That’s it for this week folks…
Boardgames in Blighty news – Wings of Glory Bombers on Kickstarter
Ok, so my buddy James who is a Wings of War fan and paints and makes his own models, is very excited about the latest expansion to this popular game. And he dares to send me this note –
I know you are sulking in a corner after the defeat of Manchester United by Arsenal, but any chance you could blog this:
It was funded in 2 hours and 29 minutes but any exposure to bring new players to the game would be great, the lower pkledge brackets are fantastic for bringing new players to the game and whats more is that all of the models will be available at retail once they are released in October, so they don’t need to jump in with all their feet right now!
Tsk… Arsenal James? Nah, small club. I fart in their general direction.
Anyhoo, Wings of War is very cool and the cool thing that Ares Games has done with the Wings of War series is that even if you are new to the series, you can jump in and taste it and this is the first time you can get the amzing bomber models. Very impressive, I have to say.
I mean, look how purdy!
Soooo…. Chocks away! Get yourself over to the Kickstarter project here…
Boardgames in Blighty Kickstarter News 6/3/15 – If I had the cash I’d look at…
Well there are certainly a lot of projects going but anything really interesting and original that stands out from the 99% dross?
A strategic and tactic cycling party game for 2 – 8 persons from the age of 8 and older. Available in English, Dutch and German. (Knowledge of cycling is not required.)
Here is one for you cycling fans. Its off to a slow start but if you like the Tour de France, this might be worth backing.
Burgle Bros requires stealth, planning and a little bit of luck. In the tradition of classic heist movies like Ocean’s 11 and The Italian Job, you assemble your crew, make a plan, and pull off the impossible.
This looks like good fun if you like cooperative games. Shame its not Euro friendly.
Yep that’s all folks!
