Kickstarter Roundup

What's the latest target of my Kickstarter addiction? A couple things. I'll also list a few other projects that are miniature related for you to check out.

First up is the latest offering by Cool Mini or Not. A castle defense game called B-Sieged: Sons of the Abyss.

From their Kickstarter page:
B-Sieged: Sons of the Abyss is a fully cooperative castle defense board game that combines exciting combat action with classic resource management. In this thrilling defensive battle, 1 to 6 players control the mighty Heroes of Modhelm, who must fight back the encroaching Abyssal hordes, and endure until salvation arrives!
70 miniatures and if every other CMON Kickstarter is any indication, there will be more.

Next up is a card game called Cuisine a la Card. My best description would be to think of a card game version of Iron Chef.

From their Kickstarter page:
Cuisine a la Card is a competitive deck building card game for 2-4 players. Play as chefs, crafting the finest meals out of the ingredients available to you, and submitting those meals to discerning and capricious judges for Medals. In this intense world of culinary competition, Tasting Spoons are your currency, your Warming Tray may be your greatest asset or your worst nightmare, and a simple dash of Salt may just be what you need to tip the balance in your favor and win the game.
I love to cook, and I love watching cooking competition shows like Iron Chef, so this is right up my alley.

So those two I have pledged to. The following are other ones I have found that are miniature related in some way or otherwise caught my eye but have not pledged to them.

Clockwork Armada:

It seems to have a very Dystopian Wars/Firestorm Armada look at first blush. I would have to look at the rules first before I made a decision on it. Sadly there's no link to any rules to check out or even a gameplay video. Seems to have potential.

Project: ELITE:

A miniatures based board game by Artipia games who recently completed a Kickstarter for the game Lap Dance and are also known for Among the Stars.

Maelstrom's Edge:

A sci-fi miniatures game designed by the folks at Dakka Dakka. They have an update with some rules overviews that I haven't had time to look over yet.

Human Interface: Nakamura Tower:

Another miniatures board game in a cyberpunk setting. They have a link for rules. It's currently funded and working on stretch goals.

And finally, Shadowstar Corsairs:

A space boardgame. The campaign has video reviews, a gameplay video, a link to rules and also a print and play. So you can really decide if you want to back it or not.
