Kick The Box
Feb. 17th Edition
This week I was trolling through the streets of Kickstarter, window shopping as I normally do, and load and behold look what I found! One whole store of new games being offered by Gryphon & Eagle Games, another store offering a tale about another war of greed starting to take seed in a faraway land, a dungeon delving twist on Scrabble, and some team work by a group of warriors in hopes of joining a prestigious army of defenders.
Updates: oddball Aeronaughts has had a slow start, but they are starting to gain some amazing ground as they surge past their pledge level this last week and onto their stretch goals! Lagoon:Land of the Druids is also not only fully funded, but over three times it’s pledge level, and still has thirteen days to go as of this writing! Congratulations to both!

What does one get when they cross Scrabble and a Card Based Dungeon Crawl? Well, you get Dungeon Scroll.
Players use their hand of cards with letters to try to make words based on the specific rules of the dungeon room or beast that has been drawn. Challenges like “Only words that begin and end with a vowel are accepted”, or “players maybe able to cast multiple words for a challenge,” will test and strain your pool of vocabulary.
After a player creates a word, they place the rest of the cards in their hand face down, signaling they have completed their word for that round. They, than, flip over the timer, giving the remaining players thirty seconds to complete their word and lay their unused hand of cards face down.
The qualifying words that are worth the most points wins the gold for that round. He/she who has earned the most gold at the end of the game, of course, wins.
Shipping within US is included. International shipping is revealed within the pledge level.

Every three years, in the city of Matilda, the Lord declares an event to be held in the town square to showcase the teamwork and abilities of a group of warriors. These teams are willing to lay their lives on the line for the chance to be one of the chosen to join the prestigious ranks of the Defenders of Matilda.
The game mechanics and art style has a visual resemblance of classic video game tactic games like Ogre Battle and Final Fantasy Tactics. Two players draw four combatants to fill their team. Than the two teams are pitted against one another in the town square of Matilda. The last team standing is declared victor and joins the ranks of the Defenders.
