What's Hot on Kickstarter This Week?

Hey everyone!  This blog is a place you can come to keep up to date with the latest board game related crowdfunding projects on platforms like Kickstarter and Gamefound.  I’ve curated a few games that have caught my eye this week, so take a look and see if there’s something you’re keen to support.

Robot Quest Arena Deckbuilding Game by Paul Waite

Robot Quest Arena is a deck building robot fighting game from the makers of Star Realms and Hero Realms.  With a pedigree as strong as that, Robot Wars is set to be a solid game, but what's that? Adorable pre-painted robot minis?  Shut up and take my money!  Players control their robots via a base deck which becomes more powerful throughout the game, adding upgrades to your mechanical warriors.  Even if defeated, robots respawn so the fight can continue until the game's end where the player with the most victory points is declared the winner.  There's only a couple of days remaining on this one, so be in quick if you want to be part of this cute, quirky mayhem.

The Binding of Isaac: Four Souls Requiem by Edmund McMillen

The Binding of Isaac series returns in this massive update to the original card game, which itself is based on the video game of the same name.  The Binding of Isaac: Four Souls Requiem is the definitive set and includes 248 new cards to expand the existing game with options for a full collector's set that includes everything released to date from the original game through to the new content in a big box set. This time around there is an abundance of merch available from figures and keychains to hats, beanies and plushies.  Whether you already own the original game or if you're a new comer to the series, then there'll be plenty of content here to explore!

AracKhan Wars - The Card Game by Nothing But Games

AracKhan Wars is a tactical card game in the vein of Summoner Wars.  Players choose their faction deck of 23 cards and go to battle in epic duels.  Recruit fantastic beasts, drive forth massive war engines, cast spectacular magic, or use the brute force of your troops, the paths to victory are many and varied. The artwork looks amazing and the gameplay appears solid and satisfying. The Kickstarter funded within 24 hours and is still going strong with stretch goals continuing to be unlocked.  Check it out if you're a fan of card based tactical games or dueling games.  This is definitely one to watch!

Adventure Tactics: Adventures in Alchemy by Letiman Games

An expansion to the successful Adventure Tactics: Domianne's Tower, Adventures in Alchemy brings new heroes and an entirely new campaign to the game, including new standees, cards, minis, player boards and game boards.  Players progress through a campaign book filled with battles which result in choices to be made and they level up their characters, often being able to gain abilities from new classes, for example, a wizard may decide to take a level of fighter in order to become more robust in battle, this adds an enormous amount of replayability and variance to what could otherwise have been a bog standard dungeon crawler. Adventure Tactics: Adventures in Alchemy's Kickstarter still has over a week to run, and further stretch goals to unlock, so go get your dungeon on!
