The Kickstarting Board Games Thread
« on: February 15, 2012, 09:44:37 AM »
I'm going to start a new thread to discuss any and all Kickstarter projects for upcoming board games. Check in for new stuff!

First one:

Gunship: First Strike

This looks really really tasty! A space ship fighting game where you customize your gunship and then duel it out against enemy gunships, fighters, and the carrier. It looks pretty innovative, I particularly like the customization element. The game is already fully funded, but you have 45 days to get in on this and get some extra goodies.

Thanks for the thread.  It will be nice to hear about these projects as now I only hear about them after they are long over with.

That does look pretty cool. I'll have to look into that.

Roads to Moscow.  Should be out this year.  GMT games.  Uses the Roads to Leningrad system (no kidding).

Apparently Roads to Moscow will feature a version of the battle at Mozhansk.  I've seen two earlier versions of this:
Stand and Die.  A great game
and Borodino '41 -- probably a good game, but I was spoiled by Stand and Die.
