What you see here may be different from the final, published game. Recently we reviewed a fantastic looking board game called Dragoon from Lay Waste Games.

However, spin-off games can be really hit or miss. Many times they end up being a watered down version of the base game that can’t really stand on its own (Nations: The Dice Game). However, occasionally you get […]]]> http://www.boardgamequest.com/kingsport-festival-the-card-game-review/feed/ 0 22139 Kickstarters of the Week: 3/20 http://www.boardgamequest.com/kickstarters-of-the-week-320/ http://www.boardgamequest.com/kickstarters-of-the-week-320/#respond Mon, 20 Mar 2017 13:45:34 +0000 http://www.boardgamequest.com/?p=22180 This was one of the harder weeks to choose our Kickstarters of the Week. Not because the choices were so limited, quite the opposite. We normally try and limit the amount of campaigns we choose (for various reasons), and this week had many quality campaigns finishing up their run.

To some, it’s all about sweeping space operas with strange aliens, advanced technologies and interstellar travel. To others, it’s the exploration of the human condition in that fantastical future (or alternate present).
