Kickstarter Game Update: Week 16

Looking back: Week 15

Game I Backed:
SOS Titanic
Status: Funded

This cooperative game based on the classic card game solitaire allows players to work together to try to save as many passengers of the Titanic as possible. This funding campaign is for US distribution, not for creating the game, since it is already available in Europe. I passed it by previously, despite favorable reviews from people who played it at the Essen game convention, because I thought solitaire would be boring. However, watching a video run through of the game changed my mind.

Game I Viewed:
Argent: the Consortium
Status: 43% funded

This is a worker placement game in which the goal is to learn what criteria a consortium of voters is using to elect the new Chancellor of a magical university in order to fulfill their wishes and win the position. The theme sounds interesting, but I'm not sure I like the notion that players will have to battle each other with spells. That just seems a bit too confrontational for a worker placement game.
