In today’s Kickstarter episode we check out Gamesalute’s The Battle of Red Cliffs. This beautifully illustrated Mah Jong Card game looks like it has everything going for it. It doesn’t. It’s a sad game.

Episode Ninety-Six: He Just Wants to Enjoy His Coffee

Bigfoot Cover

 

What is better than a relaxing stroll through the wilderness? Catching Bigfoot and becoming the greatest Cryptozoologist of all time. Thus proving to your parents that you aren’t mentally deranged and rubbing it in the face of all of the so-called “Scientists” that claim he doesn’t exist. We set out to do just that when we play Bigfoot from Game Salute Games. Designed by Scott Almes of the Tiny Epic Series of games bigfoot is a two player card game of chosing paths. Assymetric game play makes for interesting decisions on both sides. What tricks is the Cryptozoologist willing to give to Bigfoot to find his secret lair? What information is Bigfoot willing to give up in order to get a Trick for the next round that will hopefully keep him hidden?

Monsters capturing Maidens, Heroes fighting Monsters, Heroes saving Maidens. Roll, resolve, repeat. We play Monsters and Maidens a beautifully put together game from Clever Mojo Games and Game Salute. With 9 custom dice and simple to learn rules it is no surprise that this was fully funded on Kickstarter. But is the game any good or is it a glossy exterior hiding something bad? Everyone at the table was excited to play this, that can’t be a good sign.
