What KICKSTARTER(S) are you BACKING and WHY?
Black Mold is just over $1K shy of funding with a little under two days left in the campaign. It's a semi-co-op dungeon crawly kinda thing with some pretty neat mechanics including the length of your turn depending on how long you can hold your breath! The deluxe version comes with a soundtrack on a cassette (!) with game enhancing components printed on it's insert. The art is somewhat reminiscent of Cave Evil but decidedly less sinister. Hope it funds!
Steamforged gets a lot of disdain - well earned - but I do think they are capable of producing a hit. Godtear, Resident Evil 3, and Devil May Cry are all varying degrees of good to great.
Stay away from Horizon Zero Dawn and RE2 though.
A quick skim of the rules doesn't suggest any radical changes; certainly not the level of change I'd need to see to convince me to dive back in.
HOMM3 the board game is also up: www.kickstarter.com/projects/archonstudi...hed_project_launched
I think I'd be better served playing the video game again than buying this. Nostalgia is still a hell of a pitch.
1. Better card artwork.
2. Better recovery mechanism so that losing a combat won't necessarily cause you to lose multiple turns.
3. A better rulebook.
4. Revise the encounters so that their stat cards are all-inclusive and don't require you to search the deck for multiple equipment cards.
Even so, I'm glad that I bought first edition, even if it rarely hits the table, because it has such an exotic setting.
Digging out the equipment is such a drag, probably the biggest thing I’d like to see changed. I also think the competitive mode is dumb which if they dropped, they could have different colour card backs making the deck sorting easier between plays.

Yeah, same here. The game does look neat though, and it hits a lot of nostalgia buttons. I still play the decent iOS app version on my iPad, and that will have to suffice.
