For me, it's just the name.

"'Two GIrls, One Grail' is a fun, cooperative game about the epic contest between Guinevere and Morgan Le Fay as they fight over who gets to sip first from the dark and overflowing grail."

Plus everything JoJo said.

Crikey - upset over a bloody name, this gets even more astounding. It's a fucking boardgame but you seem to have taken moral ownership of a theme and a word and want to get the torches & pitchforks out .... it's like being back at BGG :pinch: .

Not quite like Board Game Geek. It’s pulling a rating of 7.32 from 171 voters there. Not bad for a game due out next year.

Your point is ?? Oh - BGG like it before it is out so it must be shit, fucking grow up, the whole idea of this site is to make your own mind up about games instead of reacting to others or being reacted on.

If you've read the rules and studied the game mechanics/engine and resolved the theme and decide it's not for you or even that it will be crap then that is fair, but trying to talk it down because they're tainting a beloved mythic tale and BGG cheer squads are going ape for it is just asking for a counter-reply here.

You’re right. No one on this site has ever clowned on a game before its release or created an entire thread saying they were done with an entire setting for games.

Would you feel better if I told you the two Kickstarters I’ve backed and am waiting on, so you can goof on them? It’d be real easy to taunt at least one of my picks.

Anyone here backed anything that wasn't a game? I've backed a cool butter knife, that I love. It works on cold butter by peeling off these strands. It's amazing.

I backed a pen made of magnets, mostly because I wanted a stack of Nd-magnets.

I backed a few books. THE NIB collection, Matt Lubchansky's book, a book about early Mac gaming, a book about weight hacking (nerdy dieting).

I've backed some performing artists. Mostly to help them get to Finge Fest. I didn't get anything for it. One sent me a code for a free CD, and another sent a code for a discount on tickets but I never redeemed them.

I backed a graphic novel by a local artist once, and a really silly desk calendar that had a different dungeon every day. They were all drawn by a non professional artist and a lot of them were on like graph paper. There were some mazes in there and a bunch of silly nonsense. Loved it.

What ? Make a post about KSers you have backed and make a comment why in the thread called "What KICKSTARTER(S) are you BACKING and WHY? " - how fucking novel.

Hey, I have that thing too! I love it, but my wife still makes fun of me for it.

My spouse's Kickstarter copy of CO2 arrived yesterday. Hope to get a chance to see how it is.

Jordan Draper's new Tokyo series is up on KS right now. I was largely ambivalent. Then I found PRAISE.

PRAISE is a game entirely about complimenting your friends. It's basically nice person Spyfall. Notably it includes the best component I've seen in a very long time, because the player everyone is complimenting for the round is designated with The Cool Guy Standee.

Apparently Portal is putting a new version of Pret A Porter on Kickstarter soon (ish?). Same theme, new artwork by Kwanchai Moriya. So I'm definitely backing that whenever that happens. I've been on the lookout for a copy of the original game for a minute now. Plus I'm real into them deciding to keep the same theme, instead of changing it to video game development which was the word for a long time.

We've been keeping an eye out for Pret A Porter for a while so this announcement is a big deal. My wife was particularly glad that they kept the theme the same (even though she prefers video games to fashion) because, and I quote, "there aren't enough games with an overwhelmingly feminine theme that aren't garbage".
