05:27 am: 2015 Kickstarter Game Update Week 7
Games I Backed:
Parfum
Status: Funded

From the designers of Fresco, this game involves rolling dice for various scents and then combining those scents to create perfumes that can then be sold to customers for profit (victory points). I jumped on one of the early bird slots on the strength of my appreciation for Fresco, but it's highly likely that I will eventually drop out before the campaign ends. I already own the Fresco Big Box, Finca, and Scoville, all of which fill the "resource management with lots of colorful bits" niche. The only thing this adds is dice, which I don't particularly like.


Between Two Cities
Status: Funded

In this quick-playing tile-laying game for up to 7 people, players must cooperate with the neighbor on each side to build the best city. The player with the highest scoring city wins--the catch is that each player can only score the worst of the two cities that player has worked to complete. I think this is something that should go over well with the neighbors. I will probably pretend that my Eiffel Tower is Tokyo Tower, though.


In other board game news, Rio Grande Games has officially announced that they will be releasing the Arctic Scavengers expansion.

If I'm not too late and you haven't dropped out of backing Parfum yet, let me say this. If you really decide to stop backing it, would you keep it for me? One of my daughters-in-law loves creating scents and makes tarts (like scented candles without a wick) and naturally scented balms and such. She might enjoy the game. It's hard for me to find a board game that she enjoys. I'd pay you your cost. Thanks for considering this request.

Sure, I could do that. No problem.
