Boardgames in Blighty Kickstarter news 15/11/14 – If i had the cash I’d take a look at…

Ok, so this week, I can recommend that you take a look at…

Traveller Ascension

Traveller Ascension: Imperial Warrant places you at the center of one of the most exciting periods in Traveller history. It is the dawn of the Third Age of the Imperium. The dark times of the empire are behind us, and the future is ripe with the promise of rapid expansion, untold adventures, and even danger, on the wild frontiers of the galaxy. But rewards come only to those who are bold enough to seize that once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

Traveller Ascension: Imperial Warrant is a chance to carve out your own piece of the cosmos. You have been tasked by the Emperor to move into a new sector of the galaxy: Use your newly-acquired Imperial Warrant to Explore, to Expand and to Exploit this new area for the glory of the Imperium…and for your own fame and glory.

As an old skool gamer, I’ve always been interested in Traveller so I am happy to recommend this. Wish it was Euro-friendly though…

The Princess Bride – Three brand new card games!

The much loved film can now be experienced again with three all new card games based on some of your favorite moments!

It seems like everyone has a favorite part of The Princess Bride. This classic movie has become much loved by millions of people around the world, and Game Salute is now offering the opportunity to experience this fantastic story in a whole new way. Last year we created the incredibly popular Prepare To Die party game and now we’re looking to create three all new games based on other sections of the movie! You’ll be able to pick up one, two or even all three, but whatever you decide – we know you’re going to love the games as much as The Princess Bride itself!

Ok so let’s be up front and honest. Yes… I know… it’s Game Salute and they have previous… But before you get your knickers in a twist, my personal feeling is that although Game Salute have indeed, not been perfect and have made mistakes, they have also been very ambitious and taken risks that others haven’t.

A lot of anti-GS comments are by people who don’t know that first thing about running a game publishing business, let alone a Kickstarter campaign and who haven’t ponied up and tried to do it themselves. So I ignore the majority of it as ignorance.

Having said that, GS should have handled some things better. So there you go.

Putting that aside, as a project, I know that the designers are reputable and the topic is The Princess Bride dude so defo worth a look. Tbh, their first game in the series, Prepare to Die looked like horrible crap so I ignored it, but these 3 look pretty good.

And Game Salute does provide local distribution in Europe which is a very good thing…

Dino

In a World of Dinosaurs

A board game of paleontological and prehistoric prowess. Battle as dinosaurs and scientist-explorers across time and board space!

Nice to see a lovely looking game with a reasonably different theme. BUT, its not Euro friendly so I can only recommend it to USA backers nor is it clear that the shipping is included. Sloppy really, but worth a look anyway.
