The best board games that Kickstarter has to offer in 2018.

Updated each and every month.

Because, you know, out-of-date stuff kinda sucks.

 

July 2018


3. The Island of El Dorado – Reprint & Expansion

 

2. The Binding of Isaac – Four Souls

 

 

1. Tang Garden

 

June 2018


3. Black Rose Wars 

 

 

We could take 30 minutes to explain everything you need to know about this wildly popular game…

But we know you’d rather just watch this video that tells you how to play.

 

 

2. Empyreal Spells & Steam – A Fantasy Rail-Building Game

 

 

Emptyreal Kickstarter

This is like cross between Ticket to Ride and Settlers of Catan — two of our all time favorite games.

 

 

1. Hellboy – The Board Game

 

 

May 2018


3. Daring Contest – Make it weird. Then make it weirder.

 

Daring Contest Kickstarter

 

Daring Contest is a party game that you probably wouldn’t want to play with just any old group of people.

You’re gonna have the most fun playing with your best friends.

As the name suggestions, you draw cards with creative dares on them, and a judge decides if your ensuing performance deserves points.

These aren’t any old dares, they’re WEIRD.

For example: Pretending to sit in an invisible chair while milking a cow.

 

 

2. Street Fighter: The Miniature Game

 

 

Following the trend of bringing old school arcade games back in board game form, Street Fighter is kinda like a combination of Mortal Kombat and Risk.

 

 

1. Fireball Island: 80’s Board Game, Reignited and Restored

 

 

Fireball Island is so big that we wrote a full-blown feature on it.

It was a best seller in the 80’s.

And this version claims to be bigger, better and “100% more awesome.”

Basically you and up to 4 friends race around the island trying to avoid a mean SOB by the name of Vul-Kar who can shoot fireballs out of his pie hole.

5. Deadwood 1876: A Safe-Robbing Game of Teamwork & Betrayal

 

 

A game of teamwork & betrayal, eh? Sounds like my first marriage.

But that doesn’t mean this gold-stealing card game doesn’t look like a blast.

Also screw you, Betsy.

 

 

4. Elder Dice: Unspeakable Tomes – Cthulhu Mythos Themed Dice

 

 

Elder Dice are perfect for any fantasy or horror roleplaying game. They designed three all-new dice sets that come in three spooky colors.

I’m not trembling, you’re trembling!

 

 

3. Iron Harvest: by KING Art Games

 

Ever wonder what it would’ve been like if futuristic machines of mass destruction existed in the 1920s?

Yeah, me neither.

But luckily for us, the team behind Iron Harvest did. Iron Harvest puts a much bigger emphasis on strategy than other RTS games. So you can do more thinkin’ and less clickin’.

 

 

2. Dinosaur Island: Back from Extinction

 

 

We have but one thing to say about Dinosaur Island

Their video is hilarious.

P.S. The team behind Dinosaur Island was nominated for four Golden Geek awards, whatever those are.

 

 

1. Batman™: Gotham City Chronicles

 

In Gotham City Chronicles, you choose to be a hero or a villain while trying to maintain control of the city.

We doubt you’ll ever get bored either, cause this thing comes with more pieces than a Jigsaw puzzle.
