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...

Aww, those star dice are really cool. I'm glad I didn't see them in time to be tempted to get the game just for the dice.

You're also right about the Greek coins being gorgeous, and I'm pretty interested in the mythological monster/creature stretch goals. Ugh, Kickstarter, why do you hate my budget so much? ;_;
