The Morning Roll – Day 15 – Kickstarter Edition

| Your Opinion

Good morning gamers,
The Edge: Dawnfall is a new big box miniatures game designed by Michal Oracz, best know for designing Neuroshima Hex and the more recent hit Cry Havoc. Here we have a straight combat game that comes with a lot of extra elements, including campaigns, deck building, hex-andcounter, area control, and much more. The game is designed where you buy a faction, a set that comes with its own unique characters and skills. There are six factions available for purchase individually (for solo gaming), or you can buy conflict boxes that come with two factions that allows 1-2 players; the more factions you buy, the more players can play. So you can imagine it can get pretty pricey for the base sets, not to mention all the expansions they are offering. If you got a lot of space on your credit card, buy into this pretty elaborate, already funded miniatures game.

On a much smaller scare is Ghoulash, a card game for 2-4 players. When slimy green monsters invade the earth, it’s up to you to put an end to them! Based on an old school pen-and-paper game, you have to accumulate cards in your hand that have points, and use those cards to do battle with the Ghouls, making sure you have enough points in your hand to defeat the creature points. At the time of this writing, the game is 52% funded with 20 days to go.

As we continue to see storytelling games on the rise, once campaign wants to bring it to kids. Story Craze: The Crazy Story Game take the concept to a new level by getting the player(s) to write their story down using a set of generic story tropes drawn randomly from a deck of cards. Geared towards kids, it builds itself as a game that encourages communication, imagination, creative writing and teamwork. The campaign, in addition to families, is also promoting the game to schools and youth groups where it can work as a fun learning exercise. It is currently 24% funded and almost a month to go.

I’m a little ashamed to admit that I am late to the board gaming bandwagon. I briefly dabbled with RPGs and gave up on video games many moons ago, so board gaming never seemed like an option – until I was introduced to King of Tokyo, my gateway game, and it was all uphill from there! Outside of that, I work in entertainment in the true north, strong and free, and spend my off time embracing fatherhood.
