Me too!

And funnily enough, I've been playing Nemo's War this week already.

I backed the Space Race expansion KS. Played it at Essen and felt good. Expansion adds 5th player which makes it more likely to get played.

I also backed the renaissance skeletons based on Hans Holbein painting. Really awesome. The guy is very creative (see his Skull and Crown blog) and deserves the support. There will be a follow up in a few months so if you ve got any love for minis, keep an eye out for it.

Root is a fantasy warfare game, sort of, that is supposed to be coin-like.

"Root is designed by Cole Wehrle (Pax Pamir, An Infamous Traffic, and John Company) and brought to life by master illustrator Kyle Ferrin (Vast: The Crystal Caverns, Vast: The Fearsome Foes, Stitches). "

Cole did Pax Pamir.

It has kind of a weird low rent mouse guard thing going on in that cover.

I looked at Root a while ago, and it does look pretty cool. It's explicitly trying to put an asymmetric player powers game into something with more wide appeal than a COIN game setting like Colombia or Afghanistan.

I ended up not backing it because I just know it'll never get played at my house, (and not because of the setting). There are a lot of good designer notes over on BGG, though. If you're at all interested, go check them out.

I don't back many Kickstarters, but I'm taking a hard look at this one. Anybody have any insight into Western Legends?

Other than knowing that Travis, who owns Kolossal, is a good guy, no.

I know they've playtested the hell out of that game, not sure if it's good though. I've heard Travis describe it as Merchants and Marauders the western (which has me excited).

That'd be a good fit for the theme---I think Western games need to be lethal as hell and that's one area Merchants and Marauders is good at.

In for now for HATE by CMoN. No early birds which is nice, but I'm sure people will find something else to complain about. ;)

That game.... I don't know anything about the source material, but it sure seems like it's trying too hard to be EXTREME. None of it says "fun" at all, to me. Seems like Shadespire would scratch that itch in a much easier fashion.
