Ello EVERYBODY! It's a wonderful #Friday evening here in NSG Land! We're finally free from our #sickness and a little #drunk. Don't let that dissuade you from reading on, cause we've got a great line-up to make up for the fact that we've not been able to post all friggin' week. So without further "adyoo" ...
...THIS WEEKS RINGER IS:
Siege of the Citadel: 2nd Edition Techno Fantasy Boardgame - The #miniatures #boardgame set in the #Mutant Chronicles #Universe, designed by Richard Borg with Eric M Lang & Kevin Wilson
So apparently this was once a great #game. Well now it is once again and congrats to Cabinet & Modiphius for getting it funded. From what we could tell from the video and description it looks like a great time to be had by anyone. If we weren't broke from spending all our money on cough medicine and #booze, we'd probably back it ourselves. True story. :P
FIRST ON THE WANTED LIST:
Brides & Bribes - A board game set in 16th century Genoa that features unique #worker #placement and incredible #player interaction. 60-90min.
When we came across this game we were sure we'd found our lemon. However, after just watching the intro video, we were in love with the idea of playing this game all evening. It looked so well done, well thought out, and well put together. The description was a bit short, but that's only because most everything else was covered in the video. So we really hope that this one succeeds!
The campaign has garnered €5,877 of €16,000 ($6,557 USD of $17,850 USD) which hits around the 36% mark. With 24 days left in the campaign, theres more than enough time to back it and secure your copy of this game before the campaign ends and they hit 337% of their posted goal (if backing trends continue in this fashion). So don't hesitate!
NEXT ON THE WANTED LIST:
Battle Gnomes! - In this colorful #card game, players recruit #gnomes, arm them, and #attack their gnome neighbors to see who the top gnome household is!
Again, we were thinking cannon fodder for LEMON target practice. Again, we were surprised to find a decent game that looked not only fun, but also replayable to the #max. That's right! We just said, "to the max." We're old, we know it, but oh well. (Sorry, been drinking. We tend to rant. :P) Anyway, Gnomes! You'll be trying to take out your opponent using your wit and the #weapons at your disposal. Just hope you don't draw a crap hand. There's no #joke in the previous statement...just good solid advice.
The campaign is looking good so far and trending to make about 549% of the posted goal of $7,000. At the moment it's sitting at 54% (or $3,844) if it's goal and still has about 27 days left. So if you think your ready from Gnome warfare, then back the campaign and add this game to your collection!
LAST ON THE WANTED LIST IS:
OH GOD NO!: The Card Game - 'Oh God No!' is a hilariously twisted #satire card game that will test your morals & friendships! Awesome rewards for twisted minds!
So yet again, we're thinking LEMON LEMON LEMON! Alas, we're yet again disappointed, or pleased, or...you get the idea. We find ourselves wanting to play this game! It almost looks like someone took FLUX, Rick & Morty, Munchkin, threw it into a blender and hit ! We're really hoping this one succeeds so that we can save up enough money to buy it one day.
At the time of this post the campaign has already got €1,627 of €5,000 ($1,815USD of $5,578USD) in backing and there's still 24 days to get your "early bird special" so that you don't have to wait for it to hit the shelves if you don't want to.
LAST AND MOST DEFINITELY LEAST:
Cops Corner: competing to be the top cop - Cop's Corner is a positive family police game taking bad guys to jail, vehicle pursuits, making lots of money, & being Police Chief.
FINALLY, we've found a LEMON! We thought it would never happen, but it did! Just looking at the board makes us think, "So basically it's a rip off of #Monopoly, but for #cops." This game, in and of itself, looks like an idea birthed by cops, for cops. It tried to market itself as an educational game for youth to become friendlier with police... coughLAME*. In light of the recent news of police vs EVERYONE ELSE and the political implications, we're not sure this is the best time to release a game such as this. Beyond that, becuase we don't want to open THAT can of worms, the presentation was just BAD. The intro video could have used a lot of work, I mean a LOT of work, & the description left plenty to be desired. Also, the video in the description was just....well, to find words would be to make up words...sooo...it was "glabblefoop." This means BAD and WORSE had a baby, and that baby fell in love with TERRIBLE, they had a baby of their own, put it up for adoption, and it, in turn, was adopted and raised by every bad word that would be used to describe Donald Trumps' Haircut. We could go on, but we won't. Mostly because we want another #drink. So that wraps up this week!
We're sorry for the delays, but hope you enjoy. Until next week...
...Keep leveling up, #NERDS!
