2014 Kickstarter Game Update Week 36

Games I Viewed:

Tanto Cuore: Oktoberfest Edition (Note: Probably NSFW)
Status: Funded

This anime-style maid-themed deckbuilder gets good reviews from those who have played it--including women. Some people have even said they like it better than Dominion. On the other hand, others are turned off by the art and theme. My opinion is that I already own so many deckbuilders, I don't need to spend a couple hundred dollars on a new one. (....Until they come out with a BL version...)

Bomb Squad
Status: 74% funded

This cooperative game is essentially Hanabi with a different theme and a timer. Players are attempting to play cards to program a robot to defuse bombs and rescue hostages, but each player must face the cards outward so that only the other players can see them. This must all be done real-time before the bombs explode. While I think it's interesting that they gave Hanabi (a very abstract game) a more realistic theme, the real-time aspect seems that it would be far too stressful, particularly since (according to the theme) people will die if the players fail.
