I had taken a look at an early prototype A.E.G.I.S. over at Purple Pawn a few years back while Zephyr Workshop was still working on the game. Now Greenbrier has picked up the game and currently has it up on Kickstarter. It’s my first Kickstarter pick for October, and it’s a game I’m really excited about. I enjoyed the game …

Stellar Armada – $1 Board Game

Rob Kalajian kickstarter 0 Comments

My second Kickstarter pick for the month is a no-brainer as the game is only $1. Stellar Armada is a game of space combat that removes the board and contains only two cards and some cardboard counters. There’s still shipping to pay, but really the game is still insanely cheap. Designer Jerason Banes even has a $5 version that includes …

My first September Kickstarter pick is a game I’m a huge fan on. ORIGINZ: The Superpowered Card Game is a self-contained card battling game with 12 different superpower decks.

Kickstarter – Elemental Mystics

Rob Kalajian kickstarter 0 Comments

Another Kickstarter pick, already? Yes. Already. Just look this game. I didn’t even look up how it’s played before I backed the project. I backed it purely on it’s design. Of course I went back and watched the “How to Play” video right after to make sure I didn’t make a horrible mistake. It’s a bit over the top, but …

Kickstarter – Pages of War

Rob Kalajian kickstarter 0 Comments

Pages of War is a game I previously previewed on Purple Pawn, and has just hit Kickstarter. There’s been a few changes since I’ve played, but apparently nothing so major that my impressions of the game should differ in any way. In the game you’re a bard telling the story of one of four great races: The Men of Blue …

Kickstarter – ABXY

Rob Kalajian kickstarter 0 Comments

This month ABXY has caught my eye. It’s marketed as a simple, 2-player game of monster battles. The overall design of the game is what really drew my attention, but then watching the how to play video really gained my attention. ABXY is all about out maneuvering your opponent. You’ve got 4 actions available to you, 2 of which you’ll …
