There are a lot of active KS projects that I've already covered, but that won't last long. This is Kickstarter we're talking about, after all! And trust me, there are still other games to discuss.
1. Rescue Polar Bears: Data & Temperature
In Rescue Polar Bears: D&T, an improvement on the original Rescue Polar Bears, you are a scientist whose job is to collect data in the Arctic. You (and other players, if playing with a group) are on a quest to gather enough information to convince governments around the world that global warming is a serious issue, and that we need to take action to save the polar bears. Additionally, you will rescue polar bears who are out in the freezing water with no ice to climb onto. This is definitely a game with a message. Rescue Polar Bears also has some of the more adorable game pieces I have seen. Look at those polar bears! AWWW!
2. Arena: The Contest
Arena: The Contest does not have the most exciting name in the world, but it does have a lot of fancy-looking miniatures, and it has well surpassed its funding goal. It is a tactical miniature combat game that promises multiple modes of gameplay, including solo. It also boasts diverse character powers, an array of teams to experiment with, and variable maps. It isn't cheap: The core box is $89. But if you are looking for another tactical minis game, it might we worth a look.
This is a tomb robbing game for 1–4 players, and at $13 ($9 + $4 shipping), the price is right for a gamble. In the world of the game, the king has died, and your goal is to get into his tomb and make off with the riches he can't properly appreciate anymore. (Is this a sequel to Valley of the Kings?) Crypt offers a combination of push-your-luck, dice placement, and set collection, so if any of those sound good to you, give it a look. It's also a very small box game, so if you're the type who likes to slip out the door with a game in your bag, Crypt looks like an interesting possibility. The solo variant was the game's first stretch goal, so hopefully it was already pretty well thought-out before the campaign went live.
