I was challenged by Matt when I stated that Boss Monster 2 was probably not the best kickstarter to back (since it’s a 2 really and not the original game, why would they need to kickstarter it at all?). Boss Monster is a good light game, but not great (like Condotierre or Glory to Rome or 7 Wonders in the same vein). Caveat to this I would say Boss Monster 2 may be one of the better ones for gaming up at the moment, but that’s because we just came off Winter kickstarter madness with stuff like the new Bulldogs and Bloodrage.
I don’t come off as a cunt without suggesting REPLACEMENTS, so here are kickstarters that you should back that are up now.
- De la Soul’s new album.
- Goodman Game’s 5th Edition Fantasy – even though I don’t yet play 5th, I have 1 and 2 of these and they are solid (one is Michael Curtis so there’s that) and can be used with any of the good D20’s that aren’t 3.5.
- Car Wars Classic Arenas: I played as a kid but am not a big car wars fan– yet playing this out in a cabin in the woods would probably be pretty great.
- And from Wisconsin: Dice Display box and roller. Fucking awesome.
I can’t back all these (only backed #2) since I’m spread out on Patreon and Kickstarter already too much recently, but you should since you have a lot of spare money right?
