2014 Kickstarter Game Update Week 37

It has certainly been awhile since there has been anything worth looking at on Kickstarter. Also, somehow a ghost pledged me for one of the games on my starred list (I quickly cancelled); more on that during my weekend update.

Games I Viewed:

Eminent Domain: Microcosm
Status: Funded

This is a microgame set in the Eminent Domain universe that I tried out with sara_tanaquil at GenCon. Note that the game comes with promos for other TMG games, such as Eminent Domain and Dungeon Roll. I considered backing just to get the promos, but I haven't even used the Eminent Domain promos that I already own, so it doesn't seem quite worth it.

Japanese: The Game - Tokyo Edition
Status: Funded

This set of cards allows the addition of another player to the game. There are also expansions with more vocabulary. I didn't order the first one, so I won't be getting this (ghost notwithstanding), but I thought someone might be interested.

Lanterns: The Harvest Festival
Status: 90% funded

This is a combination tile-laying set collection game based on the idea of floating colored lanterns in various patterns on the water. It's very pretty, but (if you'll pardon the pun) a bit light for my taste.

Dragon's Ransom
Status: 43% funded

This is a solitaire/coop game for up to 2 players with a reverse dungeon crawl theme--that is, the player commands the forces of evil in the dungeon and is trying to stop the "heroes" from plundering it. It looks like something I would really enjoy, but I'm trying to save my money for the Tokyo Game Market.
