It is, in my opinion, a fairly slow week on Kickstarter. And I can't say I am sad about that—not only will we all be following GenCon releases, but my wallet is sad enough as it is. There are a few potential projects of interest, though, and I'll cover them here:
1) Build a Cure: The Bunker
Build a Cure is a cooperative card game in which you are a group of scientists who have escaped a nuclear detonation... only to find that you took shelter in a bunker that was full of deadly diseases that were stored away in the name of science. Now it's up to you to cure all of your brand new afflictions and escape before you run out of the resources you need to do so. The game seems interesting, and it's not crazy expensive, but I'd like to see some more gameplay videos and some fuller written previews from people I trust.
2) Crowbar! The Rangers at Pointe Du Hoc
Crowbar! is a solo war game (with multiplayer add-ons—usually it's the other way around!) that recreates the June 1944 assault against the Germans holding Pointe du Hoc. You'll be comparing your performance with that of the attacking Rangers, and there are plenty of objectives and events to focus on. The price tag is pretty hefty at $75, which puts it out of my serious consideration range right now. I have to really want a game to shell out that much for it. But if you're interested in a solo wargaming experience that is mechanically similar to In Magnificent Style, this might be for you.
3) Steam Highwayman II: Highways and Holloways
I have never read/played Steam Highwayman, but I do have a soft spot for gamebooks. Steam Highwayman promises to be an open-world solo experience. The first volume delivered a small number of copies, but delivered them on time. It might be worth a look.
