If memory serves, Apex Theropod: Collected Edition is slated for January fulfillment for USA backers. Suffice to say, I'm quite looking forward to hatching clutches of voracious carnivore eggs…

Yes, they just posted an update yesterday:
On December 28th, Apex cargo arrived in Indianapolis, however the cargo is still on the train and hasn’t unloaded as of yet. Once it has, the freight trucker will be scheduling delivery to the fulfillment center! So close!

I was doing better.... :(

Then I backed the new Awaken Realms one (at Commander, and with sundrop). And I bumped my Core Space: First Born to All In.

Still waiting on Etherfields, Tainted Grail, and Nemesis: Lockdown. Plus I backed The Hunters A.D. 2114.

I think I'm doing better at backing fewer. But I tend to buy in at higher $$$. But I think I'm still ahead. Maybe. But seeing Lordnine's list does make me feel better. :D

I had backed ISS Vanguard, but dropped the pledge. Awaken Realms games always look so amazing to me at first, but then I start seeing all the fiddling required and lose interest. I got a refund on my Nemesis pledge a while back too.

Here is what I have coming:
Tanares Adventures and Arena with quite a few add-ons.
Middara (I believe close to an All-In) - First Wave - should be here in February, since it is already on the boats, IIRC
Cloudspire: Ankar's Plunder
Anachrony: Fractures of the Spire + Immortal Box - Arriving Sunday, shipped by Quartermaster
Hyperspace (All-in) - I am weary of Petersen Games and never knowing just what year their games will come, maybe 2021, it was supposed to be 2020
Dungeon Universalis
Core Space: First Born (All-In) - damn it, you guys got me into this, and it is the minis war game/RPG I have been looking for forever!
Battlestations: Dirtside - I am a little worried he isn't going to deliver on this one, he has pushed it back and seems locked up with the ruleset.
Kingdom RPG (2nd Edition)

That isn't as bad as I thought. I really did a lot less backing this year than previous years (actually, some of those were backed more than a year ago). I am also not really seeing much on the horizon that I have to get, other than the new solo friendly Hoplomachus.

According to the latest update, this will be more like March-April (which is fine by me, since I think Oath will need multiple in-person plays to really show off what it has to offer).

In 2020 I moved into doing board game design full time so most of the games I back I consider market research. Kickstarter is one of the best ways to stay on top of new ways of handling mechanics and see what the new normal is when it comes to production quality. A few items on my list I never would have backed otherwise.

Wow, I never know what I'll find when I pop in here. This looks pretty cool and I'm a sucker for space exploration themed games. That this is cooperative and has a story also satisfies my itch. Backed at core level for now.

Positive side is that those are a lot of unboxings for my channel :mrgreen:

Dear Lord, Mindclash really does give you your money's worth. The amount of new material and the numerous upgrades for what I paid for this kickstarter is fantastic. Tonight when I get home from work I will begin the long process of organizing all this stuff into the new storage solution included with the upgrade pledge. I expect it to take hours, but it will be worth it the next time I bring this beauty out for a game. :wub:

Edit: an hour into going through everything and I'm even more convinced this was worth every penny. The number of variants they've included for this game is staggering. Argent: The Consortium and Dungeon Alliance are the only games that come close to having this much replay value due to variants.

Darwin's Journey went up on KS today. Heavier euro style game from the designer of Barrage. Barrage is my top game of last year and probably my favorite worker placement game of all time so this definitely has my attention. Thankfully, this campaign is not being run by the dumpster fire of a company that published Barrage. I looked into their track record and they seem pretty reliable.

What I really appreciate is that the modules essentially tell different stories within the world of Anachrony.

I'm still sorting and organizing things, but I already know I need to get some labels made for these trays. There's just so much stuff.

Also, I think it's fantastic that Turczi has included a separate solo AI that will allow you to play most (if not all) of the expansions/modules in certain combinations. I really feel like I can play this for a month straight and not see the same game twice...either solo or multiplayer.

I started a solo game last night to try the new solo AI for the base game. It's about the same as the last edition, but a little smoother. It's surprisingly easy to use (reminds me a little of a simplified version of the solo AI from Navajo Wars/Commancheria). But next I want to get my hands on the advanced solo AI that lets you play with the expansions. That looks fantastic. Turczi obviously loves the challenge of creating these things and has carved out a little niche for himself in the industry.

And yeah, I have a feeling I'll eventually get the resin tokens. I'll bling this game.

Fallen Land 2nd Edition finally on KS:



It looks like they abandoned the idea of updating all the art on the cards (which I never had a problem with) and they're offering upgrade kits as well as access to the expansions.

It's a beast of a game, but the number of variables and insane number of cards really make for an excellent story that unfolds. I am not sure I'd play it with a group, but the solo games I've had were quite enjoyable.

2 players is fun and doesn't take an exorbitant amount of time per player...well...unless that player has issues with AP or taking forever on their turn in ANY game, that is.

I believe so. Did you do one wave or two? If one, it should actually be more.

edit: I just got my notice. I'm just getting the 2nd wave of campaign stuff without the monster minis as I did the split shipping. The weight of my package is a little over 11 pounds. So 24 pounds for one wave shipping without the minis sounds right after all. I've seen some folks on the KS comments talk about a near 50 pound shipment with the all in pledges (minis, game mats,etc..).

Also, seems like the 2nd and 3rd campaigns address the issue a lot of folks had with the grind'y nature of trying to light Menhirs. I know some were house ruling ways around it. I need to go back and just finish it myself.

So, the art just does not do it for me. But then I look at the All-In Pledge and I see $175, which is a shock these days, particularly when you are getting a Neoprene mat and a ton of extras. It seems like most board game KS pledges START at $175 now, and the All-In is like "Your Home."

Speaking of spending too much, I have Tainted Grail coming Saturday as well. I was in at the King's pledge level, and it is a 20lbs package. I have no clue what I am getting. I've not put any time into Tainted Grail, so this might be what jump starts me playing it. To be honest, I would have been more excited if it was Middara or Tanares.

I'm not really sure about that pledge; the $118 seems to be more in line for what I'd expect given what's being provided at that level. The amount of cards in the game is truly bonkers, and I get that art is subjective. As someone that has absolutely not enjoyed a game because of the art/style, I definitely understand, but I can say that for this game it wasn't an issue for me as the story/narrative elements that emerge from the cards was just so awesome.

Even the game play mechanics aren't anything to brag about and calculating the numbers you need to roll can sometimes be a chore. However, the story that comes out of the randomness is really awesome, and given the variables, as a solo game it feels near-limitless.

Single wave, no bonus miniatures. I did actually receive the official shipping notice shortly after posting that. The first was from the automated mailing thing I am signed up for. To be honest, not hugely excited over the game after seeing many reviews and impressions. I've come to realize that long campaign games don't really work with my group because its rare the same group of people will meet regularly enough to make it through, not to mention I've seen that it is not great with 4 players which is the only way I would likely play. I would much prefer a 10-15 hour campaign with no padding that I might see the end of to any of these 40+ hour mammoth games.

Tainted Grail is more of a solo game, in my opinion. I wouldn't play it with others simply because it's like 7th Continent in that regards. Playing it multiplayer would be a chaotic mess. 7th Continent may actually be worse in that way, now that I think about it. But the end result is close: no real turn structure and frequent stops for long narrative breaks makes for a nightmare of a game if not played solo.

Most reviews are positive, I've found. With the exception of lighting Menhirs in the base campaign. Apparently that's so annoying that they changed that mechanic up in the follow up campaigns. As it is, some folks house rule in a "teleportation" rule to avoid it.

As for the artwork in Fallen Land, I’m usually a snob when it comes to crappy art in a game. The art in Fallen Lands isn’t that bad and really does fit the theme.

Mine's 11 pounds, but it's just the stuff i didn't get from wave 1. i.e. the two expansion campaigns and some other mini expansion stuff. It says arrival on Saturday, but it's already in Chicago as of this morning, so I hope I get it tomorrow so I can start my campaign up again this weekend.

I think it would work as long as you're okay with long pauses for story portions of the game. If your wife enjoys listening to you speak, or vice versa, that's a bonus. Try to make it more entertaining and do your best Gilbert Gottfried voice if not. That should liven things up.

The combat/diplomacy activities take some getting used to as they're unlike any other game I've ever played. But once you wrap your mind around that, it's smooth sailing...well...other than the punishing difficulty level. Some people suggest doing it on the easiest mode possible (story mode, found in the back of the rulebook). I guess even that presents plenty of challenge. However, I'm too old and set in my ways and refuse to play anything below normal as it threatens my manhood and makes me feel inferior. That's life's job, for crying out loud.

Yeah, we like the storytelling and story mode, so this should work. I'm told they have full voice over in the app, so I'm interested to see how that plays out.

My buddy Forrest Harris has launched a new kickstarter for a boardgame version of his wild west minis game, Gunfighter's Ball, called Gunfight Royale. A slightly more tongue in cheek version called Gunfight Royale.

I backed it just because GFB is my favorite minis rules set and I would love to be able to play a game of it without having to pull out all of the buildings, etc.

I received an email from Roxley last week stating all of my Dice Throne Adventures stuff had shipped and included a tracking number for UPS. UPS has not updated the tracking information in 5 days :grund: I would gladly pay an extra $15 to $20 dollars for FedEx shipping on my KS orders, I really hate UPS. I've been off of work since Friday and don't go back until Thursday, I was really hoping for some play time, although that was probably unlikely regardless of the shipper.
