Life has been crazy for me in the past month or two, but I'm getting back into my groove! And part of that groove involves perusing Kickstarter and finding games of potential interest to solo players... so without further ado, let's look at some.
1. Hour of Need
I am a huge fan of the Modular Deck System developed by Adam and Brady Sadler, and Hour of Need is another MDS game based on superheroes. MDS games share quite a bit of DNA with my current favorite superhero game, Sentinels of the Multiverse, so I am very curious about whether a more tactical version of Sentinels with a few more Sadler twists will make Hour of Need my new go-to. The KS campaign is offering you quite a bit for your money, and an all-in pledge is $109. I personally won't be missing this one.
2. Thunderbolt-Apache Leader (and others)
One of my top solo games is reprinting right now! Dan Verssen Games is doing a reprint and expansion of Thunderbolt-Apache Leader, along with Fleet Commander Nimitz and Tiger Leader. I haven't played the latter two, but TAL is a phenomenal solo game that I recommend for anyone who loves the idea of a campaign game where you carefully choose your pilots, aircraft, and weapons for maximum destruction against the enemy... with some luck thrown in for good measure to make a mess of all your careful planning. If I didn't own TAL already, I'd back it, and I'm definitely eyeing the expansion!
There are several other active Kickstarter campaigns I could mention, but you know what? I won't. These are the two games I am legitimately excited about right now, and ones I would drop my own personal money on.
