    What is a 4x game? Honest question. They keep calling it that but I don't know what it means.

    Hellboy Boardgame kickstarter by Mantic

    Don't be aggrieved. Isn't that just the regular retail edition without all the Kickstarter extras? See 1:20 in the video for the difference. Cheers.

    Mr. Petersen will be welcome to more of my money when I have my latest Cthulhu Wars delivery. Until then I will watch his great projects from afar.

    Mantic : Terrain Crate 2 KS

    Baba Yaga's Dancing Market Stalls. Works for me.

    Miniature Paints -Liquid Acrylics from RPE

    So are these Ral Partha paints like from the 1980s? If so, does anyone know if is there an equivalent for 77-711 Dun? Cus I miss Dun. I think I can still smell it somewhere, out there.

    Reichbusters: Projekt Vril

    The minis look amazing. This has my attention.

    That's weird. MisterShamWOW is my cousin too...

    Claustrophobia 1643 kickstarter by Monolith

    This was an interesting experiment for a Kickstarter. Ten day campaign that stopped generating interest after three days. Final day saw nothing happen at all. They were (presumably) left short about 2300 games that they have already produced. Maybe they will end up going retail after all. So a company using kickstarter as a store doesn't work? Or was it this project in particular? Personally I suspect the latter. The visual presentation of this project didn't really grab me and it is only a two player game. There are so many kickstarter board games with miniatures this year and I already feel I've used up my enthusiasm unless something works hard to keep my attention. Plus no pledge manager so they are essentially saying you have to decide now. I bet with a pledge manager they could have drawn in a few more fence sitters. The unexpected appearance of enthusiastic supporter MisterShamWOW here on the last day certainly raised my eyebrows and didn't exactly give me a lot of confidence in Monolith.

    Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

    Did something go wrong with the video? The embedded window doesn't show the miniatures in better detail. In fact it is somewhat worse because the resolution is poor.

    Deep Madness Second Printing Kickstarter

    Is there any truth to the comments that some of the atmospherically gloomy components (the tiles specifically) are too dark for visually challenged (old) eyes? I would love a good solo game but ocular weariness is a chronic issue for me these days. Your thoughts are welcome. Thanks.
  11. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/privateerpress/level-7-omega-protocol-board-game-2nd-edition I don't know anything about this game but it seems to be well-received. A reprint with bonus materials. A short campaign which ends on November 1st.

    Cthulhu: Death May Die

    Pledge manager closes tomorrow. I thought there was another week ... I must have got mixed up about dates.

    DUSK : Arena of Shadows

    I am exploring the project to find some justification for the $120 pricetag for this game (or $160 if you wish to participate in promised stretch goals) but I am flummoxed.

    Westfalia - The Dark Eye RPG Miniatures

    I bought them all. Am I correct in observing that the two "star" minis (viking and sorceress) are not part of the core pledge and are only available as 15 dollar add-ons? If so, disappointing.

    "Cthulhu Wars" Official Audio by Darkraven Games

    To be honest I don't find the audio samples (if I listening to the right ones) all that exciting, scary, or dramatic. More like atmospheric background effects from a computer. Am I listening to the wrong things? I am happy to be convinced. Cthulhu Wars is an intense, dramatic, fast-paced and rough game. If I wanted music in the background then I would use pieces of epic orchestral music or soundtracks to high-stakes dramatic films. I also find 24 USD for an hour-long digital download somewhat expensive. I would pay that for HQ physical media.
