06:24 am: 2015 Kickstarter Game Update Week 2
Game I Viewed:
Deluxe Orléans
Status: Funded

This is a bag building game, which means players get various cardboard chits, toss them in a bag, then draw out a random selection each turn and must make decisions on what to do based on the abilities of what chits were drawn. Upon watching the video, it inspired me to give it the nickname "Warcraft Garrison Missions: The Boardgame" because players are assigning "followers" with various abilities (the cardboard chits) in groups of two or three in order to achieve specific results. A lot of reviewers are raving about the game, but while I think it might be fun (don't ask me about how addicted I am to garrison missions), I don't know that it would hit the table much.


Honorable Mention:
Foam Brain Dice: Metals II
Status: Funded

This project for metal dice with various numbers of sides was forwarded to me by megory because it has unlocked stretch goals for Japanese (kanji) dice.

Gah! I am so tempted by the kanji dice. I have to stop acting like Kickstarter is the only source for these nifty things. I'm sure somewhere out there in a novelty shop I will someday run into kanji dice.

If you don't care about the dice being metal, I think you can easily find them elsewhere. I actually have a (D6) set that I bought...jeez, I dunno, must have been when I was in college? In a comic book shop, I think. I bet you could find them online in about two seconds now, though.
