Hey there solo gamers! Kickstarter has a lot going on right now—and I mean a lot. Let's at least talk about a few of its offerings! These projects are ending fairly soon: They also have one other thing in common—they are all projects that I am personally backing with my own money.
1. Everdell: Spirecrest & Bellfaire
I think it's finally time for me to go in on Everdell. Worker placement, tableau building, and adorable creatures that remind me of Redwall make a potent combination. I considered it during original campaign, I considered it during the Pearlbrook campaign... and now I'm ready. The game has proven staying power, as well as a deeply discounted "all-in" pledge. Spirecrest will allow for further exploration of the world of Everdell, while Bellefaire centers on a celebration put on by all of the woodland creatures in the game. If you want some Everdell expansions, or are like me and ready to hop in, the campaign ends on October 3.
2. Detective: City of Angels and New Expansion
I backed this project on Day 1, and I am genuinely excited about it. I have truly enjoyed the Detective: City of Angels base game, and I want more! I have had fun playing Detective both solo and with my game group, and if you are into detective games, I definitely recommend it. Also, it's a KS exclusive game, so waiting for retail is risky at best. The campaign ends on October 8.
3. Upstairs, Downstairs: An Obsession Expansion
I did not back Obsession the first time around, but I did end up with a review copy—and it ended up being one of my surprise hits of the year! I like Obsession so much that not only am I backing the expansion, but I'm paying for the reprint with my own money. I am looking forward to sipping tea with an even fancier version of this game. The campaign ends on October 15.
