Mistfall: Heart of the Mists - Legendary Adventure Continues (Funding ends May 26th) - I kickstarted the base game that this expansion is for (and that you can also get through this kickstarter).  It's a pretty cool game and I think the expansion is going to be great.

Calamityware dinner plate 9 (Funding ends June 1st) - If you haven't looked at calamityware before they make plates (and other stuff) in the blue willow style but with a calamity happening.  The calamity this time is a plague of frogs.

Red Markets - A pen-and-paper RPG that's an interesting take on the zombie apocalypse genre.  Take a look at it.

Massive Darkness (Funding ends July 7th) - I'm legitimately excited about this one.  It's by the makes of Zombicide and they've proven they can make games that people want to own if nothing else.  The game is a 1-6 player dungeon crawler board game with no DM (monster actions are scripted) and some really nice looking pieces.  Also you can level up and make character development choices all without having to write on anything or make any sort of permanent changes to the game.  The only issue is that it's very pricey (which makes sense given how many miniatures are involved...)

FIRE & BONE 4: Tiny, Digitally Captured, Metal Animal Skulls (Funding ends July 12th) - Small metal animal skulls.  I pledged for one of their earlier kickstarters and got a pair of wolf skull cufflinks.  They're good quality and look great, these guys are trustworthy and know what they're doing.

Nova Cry: A 30-minute Sci-Fi Card Game (2nd printing!) (Funding ends July 6th) - It looks like a very interesting tabletop game, it's like a tabletop version of a sci-fi computer game.  Look at the kickstarter, it'll explain itself better than I can.

Inner Space: A Collection of Laser Cut Wooden Mandalas - Cool laser cut wooden mandalas just as the name suggests.

Planetarium - A board game about making planets.  As of writing this there's no reviews or gameplay videos (but they will show up eventually) but you can download the rulebook, and it won an award in Quebec.  Also, there's only one pledge level and it's $29.

Exoplanets - A planetary life-development board game - Name is pretty self-explanatory, not as pretty as Planetarium but easier to figure out from just looking at it.  Also it's an established game in Europe so there's that.

Evil Dead 2: The Official Board Game (Funding ends August 9th) - I'm on the fence about it, but here it is.  It's officially licensed by a company who makes an Evil Dead 2 comic book series.

The Light of R'lyeh —Cthulhu Ritual Candles (wax & resin) (Funding ends July 28th) - I'm not on the fence about this one, they're pretty cool candles (both normal and flameless candles).

Go for it.  I post plenty of non-game related stuff, and even if I didn't there's no reason to restrict the thread.  Contributions are always welcome!

This one is a humble bundle.

I couldn't decide where to put it so it so here it is.  Humble Bundle is currently offering a lot of the revised VtM Masquerade books, you can get six of them for just a buck.

Vampire Hunters board game kickstarter.

Looks like a really fun game, lots of replayability, and has optional rules (hunters become vamps, harpoon & winch to drag vamps into the sunlight), co-operative play, competitive play, and solo play.
What do I win?

ISOLATE - Switch off your ears! (Funding ends August 14th) - Not to be cliche, but this looks like a revolution in consumer grade earplugs.

The Superbook: Turn your smartphone into a laptop for $99 (Funding ends August 20th) - Normally I avoid technology kickstarters.  I'm not an early adopter, I wait to make sure that the technology is valid and viable before I finally buy into it.  Be warned, this one is Android only.  It's basically a docking station for your phone that happens to be a laptop.  Check it out.
