It's almost May, and Kickstarter is offering your wallets no mercy. There are always some more notable solo Kickstarter projects on the scene!
1. City of Kings Reprint
If you missed The City of Kings the first time around, here is your chance to change that! City of Kings is back on Kickstarter, along with several expansions and deluxe upgrades. City of Kings is a game that I am legitimately enjoying, and I do recommend having a look at it if it seems like your sort of thing. The one potential problem is that it's expensive.... really expensive. I like the game enough to consider shelling for the new characters and the anti-knock trays I skipped last time, but I need to actually think about my finances before I do it.
2. Fleet: The Dice Game
The original Fleet is good fun, and it's solo-able with the Arctic Bounty expansion. It looks like a fun game of rolling dice, drafting the best ones, and creating the best combos you can as you build your fishing empire. I am definitely interested, especially at the price point—$26 for the deluxe version of the game, plus whatever shipping costs are charged at the end of the campaign. You can also pick up the original Fleet and its expansion at higher pledge tiers.
3. Gem Rush
Gem Rush is a light, fun game from Victory Point that is being reprinted for their deluxe line. I have the original cheaply-printed, pizza box version of the game, and it's good quick fun. It's only $30 + shipping for a copy of the new edition of the game, but since I already have the first edition, I'm not entirely sure I will splash for it. If you have never owned Gem Rush, however, here is your chance to get a more attractive new version of it! There will also be a digital version of Gem Rush available through Steam, and I am definitely curious about that—although I am also pretty disappointed that there don't seem to be any plans to develop an app for mobile devices.
