Four kickstarters of interest have just popped up. These are pricey to back in some cases, and I certainly can’t back them all, but one or more may be worth your interest.
First up is one of those insta-backs that is bound to make a shytte-load of cash and be awesome: Eclipse! This has cool ships, cool trays and probably isn’t something absolutely needed if you have the base game, but you’re going to want it. The full game with the expansion is a hefty 150$ though. I remember getting a copy of the first printing when the game got really hot by luck of timing years back and it’s been balls to the wall Eclipse ever since.
Second is OVER THE EDGE, a new version of the classic ‘fucked up island’ RPG that I never had a chance to play or run. The design was very influential and I expect it will be even better (much like Feng Shui 2 is to Feng Shui). This may not be everyone’s cup o tea, but the old game spawned the Greatest CCG card ever made.
Third is another Quartermaster Game yet this time about the Cold War. I really liked Quatermaster 1918 and feel this one will be even better.
Last is DEAD MAY DIE: CMON’s take on the Agents VS Cthulhu thing. This looks good but there are so many of these games… sooo many…
