Three Kickstarter projects to consider: SolForge, Drunk Quest & Relic Knights

There are three Kickstarter projects that are winding down and a worth looking at:

SolForge is continually ramping up their content with this all-new digital CCG designed by some of the most legendary names from Magic: the Gathering like Richard Garfield, Justin Gary and Brian Kibler! They need a bit over $40,000 to meet their goal as an iOS/Droid release. We’ve talked about it a lot already, but if you enjoy Ascension, you’ll probably enjoy this one. SolForge’s run ends Monday September 10th at 7:07 pm EST.

Drunk Quest is what happens when you take a game like Munchkin, but tighten the rules and add some extra drinking. A card combat game for three or more players, I was sold as soon as “Brewmaster” was listed as a class. This project is fully funded and the stretch goals are getting nice. While I wish I had the extra cash for the officially marked beer steins, I’m looking forward to sharing drinks and battling an army of drink pun monsters! Drunk Quest ends Friday September 7th at 6:30 pm EST.

Relic Knights looks absolutely terrifying but also incredibly awesome. Another fully funded project, Relic Knights is being done by the same group that broke Kickstarter in half twice already with Zombicide and Sedition Wars. Relic Knights is a blend of sci-fi action, anime style and miniature combat. They seem to be unlocking content at an alarming pace, but the real kicker is Gabe and Tycho have signed on as well. Relic Knights will be fully funded Sunday September 9th at 9 pm EST.

All three of these projects are worth looking at. Whether you’re after a party card game, a new and innovative digital card game or some of the most stunning miniatures I’ve ever seen, check them out before it is too late!

Arena Review: Zombicide

I’ve been actively trying my best not to get too taken over by Kickstarter campaigns. That would work really well, except for the fact that game designers keep releasing awesome products again and again. But when it comes to Zombicide, I really owe all of it to Tycho over at Penny-Arcade for adamantly pushing it in the spring. Who can say no to hordes of undead endorsed by Tycho?
