April 27th, 2016 by Irwin Fletcher Comments

Colms Arena


Legendgerry rounds up the latest tabletop offerings on Kickstarter, this week he looks at card games.



ARENA: FURY OF HELLAS is the first card game produced by award-winning game publisher Kobold Press. It’s a quick-fire game for 2 to 4 players where you take the part of the gods of Greek mythology, meddling in the fates and affairs of men and monsters alike for your own amusement.

Designed by Irish game designer Colm Lundberg who recently designed Love2Hate, ( released by Green Ronin Publishing.) ARENA: FURY OF HELLAS is simple to learn and play, but it requires strategy and planning to win. Check out the video below.



The Dresden Files Cooperative Card Game

Play Harry Dresden & his friends in this tense, strategic co-op card game from Evil Hat, based on Jim Butcher’s NYT bestselling novels!

Evil Hat are past masters of Kickstarters and their experience has led them to do something different regarding the shipping.

The game won”t ship until 2017 so they aren’t going to charge shipping until then. This is actually a good move as it allows them to deal with changes in shipping costs (both up and down) fairly and accurately. hopefully it will work out but don’t be surprised by a second payment being needed in 2017.

The game itself looks awesome similar in style to the Legendary Encounters games.



Ameritocracy: Card Game



Do you want to get political? Ameritocracy is a strategic card game where players are campaigning to be the next President of the United States. It packs deep strategic game play and playful art into one box along with six white stripes, seven red stripes, and a heck of a lot of stars.
