Welcome to another round of "look at what I found"!

First up, I have to say that I am NOT recommending nor backing this.  I am laughing at it though.

Conspiracy Theory (Funding ends October 9th) - Do you remember how when Cards Against Humanity came out it was basically an adult version (but not an actual rip-off) or Apples to Apples?  (If not, look it up.  They're both good, and similar but with enough differences to not feel like one ripped off the other).  This is totally a rip-off of CAH.  I have to admit, I haven't liked anything Steve Jackson has put out in years.  Many many years.


Next up, we have something that I don't think will meet its goal but looks really cool.

DemoFist " World's most Unique ( Cast Iron ) Hammer " (Funding ends October 5th) - Look at it.  It's like a kid's hulk fist toy made out of cast iron that you use for demolition.  How does it not have more backers?  The right-handed only model is probably dampening things a lot.


Okay, I never even look at the film section of Kickstarter so luckily their homepage pointed this third one out to me directly.

Miss Fisher the Movie (Funding ends October 14th) - If you've already watched Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries then you're already at least as excited about this as I am (or at least you better be!).  For those who are unaware, read the Wikipedia synopsis.  We're already funded, but this show is amazing and it will be amazing as a movie.  They're also adding new reward tiers constantly.


Moving on to more in line with the theme of the boards, we have two games.  First, the video game.

The Cyanide & Happiness Adventure Game (Funding ends October 5th) - I honestly don't think this needs an explanation, and if it does I'm not the one to give it.  Just go look.  Shoo.


Lastly, a more traditional RPG.

Numenera 2: Discovery and Destiny (Funding ends October 27th) - This is more of a Numenera 1.5 than a full second edition, and I'm not big on rules-light games such as Numenera, but I know it's popular so here I am telling you about the kickstarter anyway.

Did you just give Reaper money for more miniatures than you'll ever need/paint?

Then you need The Hobby Holder - A Better Way to Paint Miniatures (Funding ends November 1st).  This actually looks really cool, really comfortable, and I'm currently waiting to see if a spot clears up in an early bird pledge because I want more than one for no good reason at all.

meh. I'll stick with Lego bricks and mini-figs.

I think minis and a dry erase mat might actually be cheaper than legos.  :P

But then for my money I have infinite diversity in infinite combination...   :cool

rather tough to pose most miniatures, not to mention changing up the outfit or weapon. and drawing with dry erase has it's own challenges and limitations.

(I actually have a dry erase table for my gaming, so I've done got the mat beat hands down.)

I like pocket pens.

Here is a pocket pen (funding ends November 4th) that you should buy.

Do it.  Buy the pen.

Buy it now.

I really want this pen.  It is attractive, pocket sized (only slightly larger than a fisher space pen which was my pocket pen for many years), and has a bolt action.  The clip can be removed, and it can take two kinds of ink refills.  You also get your choice of colors and can have different parts of the pen in different colors.  This guy has done two other successful pen kickstarters.

However, this pen doesn't have enough pledges to be successful right now.  You could change that.  Get the pen, get extra to give to your friends.

Do it.  Do it because you love me and want me to be happy.  I am on the search for an amazing pocket pen, and I think this might be it.  Don't you want me to have a great pen?

If you would have happened to have gotten me a copy of the rpgmaker humblebundle, I would have seriously considered it. ;D

No worries. If I didn't have the resources for the one, it probably would have taken too long for me to gather resources to be in time for the other, anyway. ^^

Don't worry, one pen wouldn't have made a difference.  This one's not going to make it.

For anyone who might be interested in the Zucati dice, they are comparing themselves with Game Science and other manufacturers known for precision made high quality dice.  Check them out, they're more than just plastic dice for cheap.
