06:48 am: Kickstarter Game Update: Week 3
I've been noticing a number of game designers and publishers announcing that they will be launching Kickstarter projects around September 15, so we may have a reprieve until then.

Looking back: Week 2.

I didn't back any new games this week.

Game I Viewed:
Belle of the Ball: A Fancy Schmancy Card Game
Status: 55% funded

This is a card game in which players use various actions to manipulate the attendance of guests at parties they are hosting as well as to gain the favor of the lovely Belle. I think the art looks great, and the theme of the game appears fun. I'm just a bit put off by the overdone wacky humor evidenced by the names of the guests on the example cards (such as "Gigglelack Lololol" and "Fffffffff Flippinbird").

Agreed: the theme looks like it could be fun, but the names detract from that for me. (I don't need deadly serious names, just...a more clever form of silly.)

Exactly. The humor is just a big miss for me.
