Kick The Box

July 14th Edition

This week and next week’s editions of Kick The Box are going to be short. I’ll be starting my vacation this week, and depending which day of the week it is, I’ll be camping, ghost town hunting, playing games, and traversing across the beautiful six states of Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana, and Nevada. But I did want to leave you with these two amazing Kickstarters this week. Both tabletop related, but neither really technically a tabletop game or game accessory, but they still count in my book! Read on to see what they are!

Kickstarter News: Congratulations to Zenion Games for their second successful Kickstarter campaign, TheShadows Over Westminister! The Official Catan Collectors Series is fully funded with a little less than a week left in their campaign.

Core Worlds Digital Edition

Project By: Broken Myth Studios

Main UI

For all you fans of the deck building game, Core Worlds, Brokenmyth has a treat for you! They are wanting to bring this popular card game to an IOS an Android screen near you.

In case you are not familiar with Core Worlds, players are leaders of small, barbaric, fledging empires, ready to flex their muscle and strike at the heart of the crumbling Galactic Empire. Players will take turns building their fleets and ground forces. And when the time is right, invade different worlds, all striving for the same goal; galactic domination.

Core Worlds Digital will include single player and multiplayer support, including pass-and-play, tournament play, match play, in-game rewards and limited edition cards that will allow you to customize the look and feel of your empire. 

Unpub – The Unpublished Games Network

Project By: Darrell Louder

Help Unpub help unpublished tabletop games and their designers.

Unpub is growing a community of playtesters,designers, publishers, retailers, and artists all with one common goal; help find, develop, and market unique tabletop games for all of us to enjoy.

Unpub helps organize events for designers to get their games in hands of playtesters for feedback.

Your Kickstarter pledge will not only help Unpub organize small events, but also help them organize Unpub 5 convention, which has grown from a two day event, to a three day event, and instead of being held in Delaware, it has grown enough to be held at the Baltimore Convention Center in Baltimore, MD.

You can pledge for tickets to Unpub 5 through the Kickstarter campaign, but if you can’t make it to Baltimore, there is also some great rewards for helping support Unpub and what they stand for.

Short and sweet this week. I’ll return next week with another edition of Kick The Box. Thanks for stopping by and checking things out. Feel free to leave any comments and suggestions and be sure to hit the subscribe button, so you don’t miss any of the Kick The Box’s and other Troll In The Corner goodies. Til next week, keep playin’ to be playin’.
