As usual, there are several interesting Kickstarter projects out there for solo board gamers! I'm only featuring a couple this week, since they're the ones I am particularly interested in.
1) Mr. Cabbagehead's Garden
This is a quirky game about anthropomorphized vegetables, with art that looks like it was ripped straight out of an old-timey children's book. (Apparently it was actually inspired by Victorian-era seed packets!) Your goal is to keep Mr. Cabbagehead's garden safe from thieves so that he can finally win a gardening competition. During each turn, you will have a planting phase in which you draw and plant vegetable cards. Then you'll have to deal with a neighbor phase, in which one of your rude neighbors comes in and interferes with your hard work. This game has had a great track record as a PnP game for a couple of years now, and it's designed by Todd Sanders, who has a sterling reputation as a solo game designer. (Another of his recent KS projects was Pulp Detective.)
2) Brook City
Brook City is basically a buddy cop board game in which you (and friends, if you want) work together to keep Brook City crime-free. In this game, you play as police officers who take on the city's criminal underworld using varying player powers and maximizing personal decks of cards. Players will also deal with obstacles dealt by a criminal deck and work through a case deck that represents what the players' goals are. In addition to the decks of cards, this game comes with several miniatures and an elaborate board that depicts the city. You can even commandeer better vehicles, Grand Theft Auto style. If your regular police cruiser isn't good enough for you, go ahead and upgrade! I am definitely interested in this project. The only issue for me is the price—the base game is $89.
Your comment will be posted after it is approved.
