Kickstarter Report #11

Kickstarter Report

Winter is upon us, but there’s still some great Kickstarter Campaigns out there! They’re fewer and farther between, but they’re there! This article will hopefully help you find some of those gems, both games and gaming accessories alike. Click on the titles of each entry, or the link at the end of each entry, to visit that game’s Kickstarter Campaign page.

RONE

I’m a big fan of post-apocalyptic settings, and a also a huge fan of strategic card games. RONE stood out to me because of the theme, the great looking design of the cards, and the fantastic artwork. It’s nearly funded and just needs a little boost. From the RONE campaign page:

Races of New Era (RONE) is a strategic post-apocalyptic card game for 2 or 4 players set in a dark world full of destruction and suffering. It combines exciting and unique card game mechanics with enormous possibilities of how to play the game.”

“You will recruit soldiers, battle machines, powerful hybrids and tremendous mutants into your army; then equip them with the available technologies and show your enemies who rules the new world order.”

RONE is a competitive card game that looks dynamic and full of tough choices. The game features some interesting elements, both as a game system and with its theme. Players controls mutants, machines of war and genetically modified hybrids to do battle with one another. Fans of games like Ashes, Mtg and Netrunner who are also interested in a post-apocalyptic theme should definitely check this one out. There’s a lot more pictures and gameplay videos on the campaign page.

Spy

Differing from FDR’s normal fare, Spy is a roleplaying game system with a robust character design system and places players in a modern, espionage-filled world as agents. From the Spy Kickstarter Campaign page:

The Factory is a covert tactical response organization created to protect America from Foreign and Domestic threats. To the general public, this organization does not exist. For those in the field of intelligence, they are fully aware of the Factory. The Factory’s reach is global and their connections run deep. Agents are specially selected from all walks of life- Military, Criminal, and Civilian. We have not forgotten our friends across the ocean. Our book will cover other organizations across the globe that you can make agents from.”

The system boasts an intuitive, yet robust, experience where players can get familiar with the rules quickly and start playing in a very short amount of time. The game also has a low price point and low campaign goal as well. If you’re into RPGs and are looking for something a little different, Spy just might fit the bill.

LUMA DICE

Awesome dice made of metal and using colorful LEDs… Not much else needs to be said, but we’ll hear from the LUMA DICE campaign anyway:

Playing games should always be a fun and magical experience. Our job is to deliver you the most exciting dice for playing all your tabletop adventures!

We have turned traditional dice on its head. Each side of dice lights up with different colored lights. The dice itself is carved from a solid block of aluminum and uses an accelerometer to detect motion to turn the lights on and off again when not being used.”

  1. Do not in any way buy the Luma dice. The kickstarter project has completely stalled and is likely a lost cause. Last I checked the luma dice website was selling the dice, but it seems like that will only be a rip-off as well.

    • Hmmm… I’m not intimately familiar with the project but there was an update for last month posted on the campaign. It was posted on the 8th of August so hopefully another update will be coming in the next few days since it’s now the 5th. There seems, at least at first glance, to be pretty reasonable (or at least plausible) explanations for the delay despite how frustrating I’m sure the wait is.
