Boardgames in Blighty Kickstarter News – Cyberpunk fan? Check out Nightlancer!

I know that a lot of you are Cyberpunk fans and will know a lot more than I do but I have to say that Nightlancer from Adversity Games looks like a good one. It is now live on Kickstarter here.

The art looks very nice and I like that it sounds a bit like a tabletop rpg. Carrying out missions is always a tick of the right box for me and speaks to replay value. You will compete and at times may choose to cooperate with the other players which sounds interesting and fun.

The price seems fair and with free shipping in the US and UK as well as EU, US and Canada-friendly shipping Nightlancer should attract a lot of attention.

Keeping my eye on this one ūüôā

Well, look no further!

Hat Trick 7 Hat Trick 8

From the project…

Hat-Trick is a  strategy board game for football lovers. Use 44 player skills to recreate any team in the world or manage 1 of the 24 in-game teams. It is a card-driven simulation that convincingly  recreates a 90-minute football match. All match events like passes, dribbling, fouls, penalties, free kicks, etc.,  are there, building a unique narrative each time you play.

The Player’s expansion takes this concept even further, with 22 player types and 44 skills to customise your team any way you see fit. Use different team budgets to sign players and see them in action.

Hat Trick 5

I have to say as a footy fan that I would be interested in this one if I had the spare cash.

You can find the Hat-Trick Kickstarter project here.
