Jess’s Fav Five Kickstarters of the Week 7/7/17

7/7/17 must mean something… It totally means today is Friday Favs!

1. Trash Pandas – the card game

Trash Pandas Kickstarter

Dungeon delving, I mean trash bin delving raccoons in search of treasure? Yes please! Trash Pandas is a push-your-luck/ set collection game for 2-4 raccoons or players. You’ll be collecting up trash to be used in point scoring sets or for their abilities. It looks simple, fun, and the art is hilarious.

Check out Trash Pandas on Kickstarter here!

2. Habitats 2nd edition

Josh introduced me to Habitats and I love this game although I am totally bummed out that the new version will not have the tiny ceramic animals. In Habitats you are building a zoo where the animals will score points if their enclosures are near other enclosures of specific types.

Habitats example

For example the Kingfisher wants to be next to a water enclosure and the Salamander wants 2 forest tiles. In the picture above, those animals are satisfied by the set up, but the Impala is not because it wants a whole lotta grassland. Sorry Impala.

It is really fun and Corné van Moorsel is only making around 500 copies, so head on over to the Habitats Kickstarter and pledge now! (If you are like me and simply must have the tiny animal figurines, you can either try to buy them from Cwali at Essen or from an online shop. I recommend LittleCritterz.com. They make cute ones)

3. Blueshift: The Game of Galactic Conquest for 2-6 Players

Blueshift Boarde Game

Blueshift looks like a really cool space exploration and battle game for 2-6 players. It uses a modular board built from hex tiles which will start off flipped over. As you explore the universe you’ll be flipping these over to see what you have discovered. I like this as it gives you a different battle field every time you play.

4. Pepper and Carrot Board Game

Loyalist Games and designer Guillermo H. Nunez have created a game set in the world of David Revoy’s “Pepper & Carrot”, a stunningly illustrated webcomic.

pepper and carrot the potion contest

Pepper and Carrot The Potion Contest is all about making potions. You’ll be adding ingredients to your player board and using order cards to move tiles around so that they can be useful to your potion. It’s puzzly, adorable, and can pledge at a higher level to get a stuffed Carrot the cat.

5. The Tablebreaker: The Ultimate d20

The tablebreaker
Word of caution: Never roll anything that’s bigger than your head.

The Tablebreaker is a stupendously large d20. If you are looking to decorate your gaming home or really want to show off during your next roleplaying game, this die may be right up your alley. Standing at 116mm (or just over 4.5″) and constructed out of Architectural Aluminum the Tablebreaker is megalithic! I think if I was ever to roll this on Josh’s Geek Chic table I would be banned from his house for life.
