07:03 pm: Kickstarter Game Update: Week 4
Looking back: Week 3

Game I Viewed:
Fantasy Frontier
Status: 43% funded

I was sorely tempted by this one. In the end, though, my budget won the battle. This game appears to be a Jack of all trades, master of none. It has the hex tile laying/pattern matching of Takenoko (without the cute panda), the worker placement of Lords of Waterdeep (without the fun fantasy quests), the resource management/settlement building of Settlers of Catan (without roads), and the airship combat of Teramyyd (without the detailed plastic miniatures). I like the individual mechanics, but I feel the game is trying to spread itself too thin by incorporating all of them.

Honorable Mention:
Meeple Soap
Status: Funded

What the discriminating--and CLEAN--game geek needs...

I could actually use them in Freedom, which has 1/5/10 denominations (if I didn't mind them being a little jarring with the theme), but I suspect in general that once you build up a larger collection of games, coins would come in useful for a lot of things. But even if I never used them in a game, I wouldn't be able to resist those Greek coins. They are GORGEOUS.

The doubloons could work in Lords of Waterdeep, too, instead of the cheez-its.
