Hello everyone, I am back! So I am so sorry but it has been almost a year since my last blog post. I am so sorry about that! Between being extremely busy and not being sure exactly what to write about, I definitely dropped the ball on this blog. If you have been following along, this past May I launched a campaign for our latest game called The Neverland Rescue. The game was designed by well-known superstar designer Scott Almes and it was beautifully illustrated by the extremely talented Jacqui Davis. These factors combined with the interesting gameplay and overall aesthetic, I would have thought it nearly impossible that this game would struggle to hit our modest goal of $10,300. However, I will be honest in that the campaign performed way below where we would have expected. There are a lot of reasons that I believe led to the struggle,…
In a first, Fairway plays two games at once: he reviews the metagame: Face the Consequences.
The world is round. Fairway knows he can prove it and secure the riches of the new world. Or, at least, that’s what he thinks will happen in this preview of Days of Discovery by Matt Worden Games, coming to Kickstarter on June 19th.
In episode 72, I share my thoughts regarding this gorgeous card game, Go Eco. A 2-3 player game (or up to 6 with a second deck of cards), players race to be the first to earn the predetermined amount of game-winning points by collecting cards into their hands which make up ecosystems. A little bit set-collecting, a little bit take-that, and whole bunch of nature. Learn more about Go Eco on the Kickstarter page here!

In episode 73, I check out a 2-4 player card game called Zombie Road, in which players are running away from zombies, trying to accumulate the miles they need to reach the zombie-free oasis.

Cassie is here to help you learn the new trick-taking game by Gold Seal Games that’s currently on Kickstarter: Tricky Tides.
Chris brings on five game designer and BGW contributors to talk about game theme, discuss Kickstarter, and to answer some listener questions.
There’s a definite design limitation imposed on games that have only eighteen cards. Today, Fairway does a double review and takes a look at a pair of microgames coming to Kickstarter from Concrete Canoe Games: Kingdom 18 and Itty Bitty Dungeon Delve. The games are part of a promised, new series of games from the publisher aimed at small, light and fun games. Unsurprising, then, these two first games fit the series theme particularly well.
Fairway’s been away. In space. Apparently for a few months. He returns from space with this Kickstarter preview of Moonshot, a dice-rolling, space-race game that’s coming to Kickstarter on April 24th.
