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...

My assumption is that the game will be made available through retail channels, so I need a reason to pledge now when I could just as easily buy later.

I'm assuming that I'm pledging for a game that hasn't been funded yet, in which case my money is going toward ensuring the game gets made. Also, some games have limited print runs (500 or 1000 copies), which would make them harder to obtain otherwise, or they are offered to backers at a significant discount.

If it's something that has already funded and is likely to be readily available later for the same price, then I agree I'd probably wait.
