Stuff ya seen and/or stuff ya kicked.
Woke up the other day to find I’d been trawling Kickstarter pissed and kicked this:
Zombie Doctor - The Zombie Card Game
- £2,911 pledged of £5,000 goal / 137 backers
- 9 days to go
Zombie Doctor is a frantic card-turning game. Amputate, reattach and swap limbs to survive. It’s your turn not to turn!
The game is designed for 2-4 players (preferably 4), lasts for around 60 minutes and is suitable for ages 15+, due to the comic zombie gore. It’s small enough to fit in your pocket and is suitable to play at parties or if you have a spare hour with friends and family. The game is easy to learn but the elements of luck and strategy will keep avid board gamers entertained and challenged.
Still time, but a risk this won’t get through I think.
I was also watching but forgot about and missed but were kicked:
- Kicked: 768 backers pledged $32,714
- Original goal: $15,000
Spy Club is a new cooperative board game from publisher Foxtrot Games. Acting as young detectives, players work together to solve neighborhood mysteries. Spy Club includes unlockable content that changes the game every time you play, along with a way to play a series of 5 games connected together to tell a larger story.
Potato Pirates: The Tastiest Coding Card Game
- Kicked: 5,061 backers pledged $258,408
- Original goal: $15,000
There are 7 Potato King cards hidden at random in the deck. Be the first to collect all 7 Potato King cards by roasting, mashing and frying other potato pirates. Power up your attacks with programming concepts such as loops and conditionals. Alternatively, eliminate all enemies and be the last Potato Pirate sailing to win the game.
And another that I missed but they decided to pull it because “Because we got incredible feedback by all of you on how much the Zero Gravity concept is interesting and we believe that such opportunity deserves additional work to make this message clear, bullet-proof and widespread. We hope you will be with us in this journey, which is still at day 1.”
Sounds a bit iffy, but still looked cool:
Zero Gravity: A Magnetic Miniatures Game
- Cancelled with €44,955 pledged of €25,000 goal with 542 backers
Zero Gravity is a capture the flag game for 2-4 players, featuring more than 80 magnetic miniatures (40mm) and a 3D arena. Each player controls a team of 14 miniatures that aims at scoring the target amount of Cheers (points) and win the game. Zero Gravity redefines the concept of strategy with a fresh and incredible 3D environment!
