Every Saturday, we take a look at notable and interesting Tabletop campaigns ending in the next week. We focus on RPG settings & adventures, accessories, and medium-heavy board games with interesting themes.
This campaign is for the third expansion to the Mutant: Year Zero sci-fi RPG. This expansion focuses on human enclaves who have power and authority in the future, and it features standalone rules as well as its own campaign, so you don’t need anything else from the series to start playing.
Crystal Heart is a RPG based on the Up to Four Players webcomic. It uses the Savage Worlds ruleset to create a light-fantasy campaign world where everyone is made of stone. The Webcomic actually uses the ruleset for storytelling, so if you’re into seeing dice rolls in a comic, check the comic out at the link above.
This is an unique RPG ruleset that allows players to simulate being a high-adventure sci-fi space scoundrel without a heavy ruleset. You can gamble as much as you like on a check, and you always have a 50/50 chance of winning or losing, but you have to even each bet out so you have a chance to lose as much as you gain. The game has great art and design, and definitely a lot of energy. There’s also a free playtest version.
This campaign is for a Norse setting for the Dungeon World ruleset. Creating an entirely new setting for Dungeon World is tricky because it requires extensive work on making and balancing new classes and designing new class sheets. This campaign has that plus a bunch of extra stuff for the setting like monsters, a GM Toolbox, and ready-made adventures.
After the War is an RPG set in a world where humanity lost a war to an alien species, and is rebuilding the wake of the destruction. In the game, the group will be responsible for managing a settlement. There are some free quickstart rules available for download here.
If you were looking to stock your coffin supplies for a vampire=heavy game or graveyard sequence, then this is a great one to get in on. 20 GBP nets you 20 great miniature wooden coffins. There are also graveyard monuments and obelisks available for above-ground adventures.
This campaign is for an art book filled with beautiful isometric maps of towns and dungeons, that can be utilized for campaigns. There isn’t any content provided besides the maps, but the art here is fantastic, so a great enhancement for a home-brew campaign.
This campaign is for flat, plastic tabletop tokens providing an economical solution for tabletop RPGs. The art is nice, and there’s a huge variety of pieces that can fit into just about any campaign. Specifically, rooftops, dungeons, markets, and graveyards.
If graveyards aren’t your thing, perhaps a farm, granary, and livestock pen would fit better in your campaign? These are resin structures that cost $60 for the set unpainted.
Halflings, halflings, halflings, halflings.
This is a pretty neat looking undead Blood Bowl team. The highlight being some very-creepy looking Golems.
Relicblade is a Miniatures squad game. This campaign is for two new factions, the Moldorf Expendition and Lostwood Enclave, as well as a campaign setting and book to go along with it.
Board & Card Games
QE’s pitch is an interesting one. It’s an auction game, but you can bid whatever you want in the auction. The catch is, if you bid more than anyone else, you lose. This is an old game theory idea re-imagined here so you can have numbers battles with your friends. It’s by the BoardGameTables team, it’s their second game. The first, On Tour, hasn’t reached backers yet.
Blood Rage Digital - FOMO of the Week!
OK, if you are following my newsletters, you know last week I featured my first ever digital game in Aeon’s End. That one was successful, and now we have Blood Rage (8.0 BGG, #27 All-Time) coming to digital. To sweeten the pot a bit, CMON is offering exclusive promo miniatures to come with backing the digital version of the game. I’m not sure what the final version of the PC Game will cost, but $60 gets you a ton of awesome Blood Rage stuff, and it seems like a no-brainer for fans of the game.
A wacky theme and only $15, this campaign caught my idea immediately. This card game has players taking the role of a whale general leading an army to destroy humanity.
I’m a bit astounded that a game with “chess” in the title by a first-time creator is doing well, but there’s no doubt the neat minis being offered here are helping with that. The game itself uses a neat triangle board, dice, coins, and cards to make the game unrecognizable as chess.
