2015 Kickstarter Game Update Week 5

Games I Viewed:
Aether Magic
Status: 17% funded

This is an auction game in which players are wizards collecting various runes and elements in order to cast the best spells. The art is fantastic, but the game itself looks too light for my taste. It also appears to be struggling, and from the comments I've seen, that's due in large part to the fact that it doesn't support 2 players (and most people game with a spouse/SO).

Floating Market
Status: Funded

This is a game in which players are vying to be the first to collect five different fruit cards from a market via dice rolls in order to make a delicious fruit salad. I actually pledged for this one when it first came out, but after about a day I canceled because I came to my senses and remembered I don't like dice games.

Fujian Trader
Status: 25% funded

This game, based on an ancient map of trade routes, is in Asia. While I think the origin story for the game is interesting, and the theme of trading in Asia is a bit of a change from the typical Euro theme of trading in the Mediterranean, it just didn't have a spark for me.

Honorable Mention:
Meeple Upgrade Kits
Status: Funded

This campaign from Meeple Source is for sets of wooden resources and meeples to upgrade various games, such as Pandemic, Ticket to Ride, and Lords of Waterdeep. I admit that I was tempted by some of them, though I was disappointed that they didn't have any female figures for Imperial Settlers (a game that specifically has double-sided boards for players to choose male or female).
