Looks great, I just find that my recent experience of Kickstarters is that the shipping costs mean that it's generally cheaper to wait til proper release (assuming it comes). Especially with these smaller games
Been stung on a few lately where would have been cheaper to wait a few months for retail

Looks really interesting, but 11 months ship date really put me off :(

A dice-less RPG that uses drawing - was their first "go" but said it was fun.

I saw this on a shut up and sit down video and looked like fun. It's also shipped from the UK so only £25 all in.

Ooh, yeah, I liked the look of that on Su&SD too

Feels like a £15 rather than a £25 game tho

Cloudspire

Recently just got into board games at 48!! However, I’m really enjoying it - like life changingly so. I have Mage Knight: Ultimate Edition (took a few plays to get my head round all the rules but it’s very intuitive - even for a BG noob like me). I think it’s immense and just utterly wonderful. Also got Arkham Horror: LCG which is also pretty amazing. Lots of variet and depth and yes, lots of future expense as I continue to expand the sets and campaigns/scenarios

This week however I placed an order for Too Many Bones from Chip Theory games, it seems to tick the boxes for me (relatively heavy rules, immersive gameplay).

On the back of that I also put in a late pledge for Cloudspire from Chip Theory as well. Looking forward to this to add to my solo arsenal. It looks really interesting and a fun tower defence/MOBA style game.

I backed this before and it didn't fund, so thought I'd give it another go.

This might be the best game ever made but that font (and those card backgrounds) are making my eyes bleed and I can't get any further sadly

You might not want to back this, but the videos are well done, IMO
