As always the board game community is alive and well on Kickstarter, and here are a few of the exciting campaigns there. Per the usual I have tried to to my best to choose games and game accessories from all walks of gaming and today’s offering ranges from miniatures to custom, wooden game boxes. Click on the title of each entry or the link at the end of the entries to visit the item’s specific Kickstarter Campaign page. Let’s get started!
The Adventure Case
The Adventure Case by Dog Might Games not only looks stunning and like it would have fantastic applications, it also appeals to the woodworker in me. I could list the uses I could forsee (other than looking fantastic) or I could just post their own description; let’s do the latter:
“Organize your gaming supplies in this high quality customizable case. This masterwork piece of hardware is designed specifically for the tabletop gamer – it acts as a dice box, rolling tray, storage area, and doubles as a screen for stealthy players and GMs that want to hide their dice rolls. It features elegant folding doors that stand the case up to be used as a rolling screen.”
The campaign page shows a ton of different options for customizing the Adventure Case and even has a time table for when backers would get theirs based on when they back the campaign. Dog Might also showcases several other beautiful items on the campaign page. Visit it here to learn more.
The Lounge is a hidden role game with a Mafia theme. It sounds an awful lot like Werewolf, which was based on a game called Mafia. The game is remarkably similar and the campaign states that it is, in fact, based off of those games. The campaign description:
“The Lounge is an exciting social deduction game based on the extremely popular Mafia and Werewolf games. In it, you play the role of one of the members of a town. You could be in the Mafia, and want to gain power in the town by eliminating anyone who stands in your way. You could be one of those townspeople, attempting to rid your beloved city of all dangerous and malicious folks. Or, you could have your own goals, and be one of the several different 3rd party roles present in this game.”
The campaign seems very organized and the game looks amazing. I love hidden role games and Ultimate Werewolf never seems to go very long without being played, so I will definitely keep my eye on this campaign.

Already successfully funded projects are fun to discover because you know you’re going to get to play the game and that there is no (or maybe ‘very little’ is more accurate) chance that the game won’t be produced. Warquest is a high-end miniatures game project that reminds me of Monolith’s highly successful Conan campaign. From the horse’s mouth:
“WarQuest is a high fantasy/grand strategy game that immerses players in the world of Myrathia where each takes the role of a warlord seeking to reunite the fractured land under his/her banner. During the game, players will recruit different races (wood elves, dwarves, goblins, orcs and satyrs) to fill their armies, travel across the world of Myrathia, complete demanding quests, engage in ferocious battles, conquer and control strategic regions, and if successful, make themselves ruler of all Myrathia. The game is for 1-5 players and takes 45 minutes to an hour per player. WarQuest is firmly rooted in the theme-driven, dice rolling, engaging fun of big box “Ameritrash” map and miniatures games combined with the advantages of newer gameplay mechanics and concepts that facilitate faster, more balanced and more dynamic gameplay.”
The miniatures look amazing, the campaign has some sweet-looking add-ons and the folks running the show over there have some great games on their resumes! Click here to visit their campaign page!
