Tiny Epic Pirates on Kickstarter

Gamelyn Games is the king of tiny yet epic games (hence the titles of many of their games, I guess!).

I’m a big fan of Tiny Epic Galaxies, but so far haven’t really had the chance to try any of their other ones.

However, the email I received yesterday may just get me trying another one.

Tiny Epic Pirates is a big game in a small box.

The game is designed by Scott Almes with artwork by Chip Cole, Nikoletta Vaszi, Ian Rosenthaler, Benjamin Shulman, and Felix Wermke.

In the game, players are pirates trying to bury all of their wealth on some deserted islands (presumably so they can dig it up later?)

Viscounts of the West Kingdom now on Kickstarter

I should have posted this yesterday, but wanted to get the Dice Tower Con post out and I don’t like to do two major posts in one day.

Yesterday morning, the Kickstarter for one of my most anticipated games went live.


Viscounts of the West Kingdom, designed by Shem Philips and S J Macdonald and with art by Mihajlo Dimitrievski, will be published by Garphill Games and Renegade Game Studios later in 2020.

Rival Networks Now on Kickstarter

I was really excited to see the news that a 2-player version of the wonderful Gil Hova design The Networks was going to be released and be on Kickstarter in January.

I was so excited that I announced the news as soon as I heard it!

Thus, it makes me very happy to announce that the campaign is now live!

It’s almost reached it’s $20,000 goal already and probably will by tonight.

Terraforming Mars: Turmoil on Kickstarter now!

Judging from my blog traffic in the last couple of days, you’d think there is something pretty cool coming out on Kickstarter today.

I couldn’t imagine what it might be.

What’s that? Check my email?

Oh yeah!


Terraforming Mars: Turmoil just dropped on the crowdfunding platform this morning!

It’s designed by Jacob Fryxelius with art by Isaac Fryxelius and published by Stronghold Games in North America.

I know people were holding their breath to see how it would do when it arrived, and they needn’t have worried about passing out. I’m sure they hit the target in probably 30 seconds or so. As I write this, it’s currently at $181,000 of the $20,000 goal, probably about 3-4 hours after landing.

I think people kind of want this expansion.

Q & A – Tom Cleaver (Valley of the Kings)

You know what might be a piece of news that none of you know?

That’s right, the Valley of the Kings Premium Edition Kickstarter is now live!


It’s not like I posted about it…much.

Anyway, in honour of this great series of games coming out in a shiny new boxed set with all new card art and the like, I thought it would be nice to touch base with the designer of the game, Tom Cleaver.

Tom graciously consented to answer a few questions that I posed him, not just about the Premium Edition but also about games in general.

Thank you so much, Tom, for agreeing to do this.

Premium Edition of Valley of the Kings on Kickstarter Now

For those of you who are interested in the Premium Edition of Valley of the Kings (and judging by my visit log, many of you are), the Kickstarter for it is now live!

Valley of the Kings

Yes, this huge edition contains all three Valley of the Kings games (base game, Afterlife, and Last Rites) designed by Tom Cleaver with art by Banu Andaru and Matt Paquette and published by Alderac Entertainment Group.

The second and third games are standalone expansions that can be combined or mixed with the base.

We now have some more information other than what we had before, and it looks like an interesting campaign.

Lorenzo Il Magnifico Digital on Kickstarter Now

One of the popular games in the last couple of years has been Lorenzo Il Magnifico, a game about, well, an Italian guy named Lorenzo in Renaissance Italy. (Amazing how that works).

The game, designed by Flaminia Brasini, Virginio Gigli, and Simone Luciani, came out in 2016 and was published by Cranio Creations (published in North America by CMON, I think?).

And now it’s coming to digital (Steam, at least) with a Kickstarter that opened a few days ago and has already funded 10 times over. The Steam version has been developed by Cranio Creations (so they’re keeping it in-house).

Having never played the board game (though I’m hoping to rectify that soon), let’s blurb this thing!
