Aether Captains KS Campaign is Live!

Ninja Division and MAGE Company bring you Aether Captains on Kickstarter, a steampunk themed, scenario-based, asymmetric board game for 1-5 players.
One player commands the mighty naval zeppelins of the Grand Compact: Dauntless and Dominion. As Commander, you have been tasked by the Emperor to defend the Grand Compact and Arkady from the merciless sky pirates. With your staunch crew of steam welders, engineers, navigators and gunners, you fly with honor to confront the pirates threatening Arkady.
The remaining players command waves of attacking sky pirates, each with their own unique objectives which may pit them against any player when it results in the greatest profit for themselves. Infamous and feared, you have risen through the cutthroat cadres to become a War Captain. You swear to never rest until you control the skies and the Grand Compact falls!

Rockwell: The Fluctuating Market

Rockwell GameBox

Rockwell is an extremely fantastic game from 2013 published by Sit Down!

If you don’t remember it we had a review for it here on 2D6.org check out the original review RIGHT HERE.  The short version is that Rockwell is a very well designed game where players are vying to take over a mining conglomerate blending a seamless set of Euro mechanics with bite where players can very directly influence each other while fighting the elements themselves.

Players were in charge of drilling crews searching for precious metals and diamonds (with the 1st expansion) in an effort to become the new C.E.O. of the Rockwell drilling company.

Now the first full fledged expansion is out on Kickstarter and already funded! Don’t miss out on your chance to check out a great game that flew under some radars back in 2013.

Don’t take my word alone for it other reviewers including Dan King, Rahdo, and Ryan Metzler all agreed that it is a well designed game.

I have yet to ever have a bad gaming experience and it has seen repeat plays at one of the Meetup’s I attend and is always a success.

As of now there are 8 days left in the campaign (LINK) or check out the original game campaign HERE.

Raid & Trade: War on the Streets – Live on Kickstarter!

Raid & Trade War on the streets

Raid & Trade expands its legacy and return with the first expansion “War on the Streets”. This time, far from the Golden City comes a new breed of survivors. Forged in the most desolate conditions these opportunistic individuals prowl the ruins watching for people – to either join or exploit. Skilled nomads, these ‘Hitchhikers’ can twist any situation to their advantage. 
Raid & Trade War on the streets minis
1. Expanding the basic game: Part of the Rats Gang and new tiles are added to the basic game, extending it, making it more difficult to reach your victory condition. The combat element of the game has increased thanks to new enemies you will have to fight sent from the other players.
2. New Scenarios: Introduce a co-operative mode. Depending on the number of the players you will use specific miniatures all over the city giving players new objectives such as protecting the Black Market or killing the Commander but this time all players must work together to achieve victory!
3. Hitchhikers: Four new characters with upgraded skills will prove to be very important to the game’s missions, the Hitchhikers.
4. Suburb Tiles: 9 new tiles will be implemented. This time the survivors explore the suburb around the city with new features and surprises. The new tiles include new elements such as toxic waste areas, guarded areas, and underground tunnels that grant instant movement to any part of the city you need to go.
