This week there are over 15,000 tabletop game Kickstarters live on the site, and this number grew even while writing this short article. Here are our picks of the week:
1347: The Black Plague – a bidding game that sees you trying to manage the outbreak of the Black Plague. A different theme is what helps this one make the list this week, in addition to it being relatively affordable (it’s the postage that kills us here in Australia – doubling the cost of the basic game).
Herbaceous Sprouts – Dice manipulation and set collection game that is described as ‘good to unwind’ and we all need a little more relaxation in our lives, right? Not to mention the awesome art of Beth Sobel – the artist behind Viticulture and Between Two Cities, this looks like not just a great play, but also a great looking game.
5 Minute Dungeon – Curses! Foiled Again! – An expansion to a cooperative game that can be played in 5 minutes, how much more can you add you wonder? Well, this one looks great, plus it has the added benefit of now being able to play up to 6 players. The base game is low weight, and as a result this game (and the current expansion) make a great addition for an awesome filler/starter game.
