Hero Realms Journeys

Looking for a good deck building game? Here’s one of the absolutely greatest. Ask anyone and I’m sure they’ll recommend it (or its SF version) to you. The campaign offers new expansions and ability to buy all products from the franchise released so far.

WHO’S SHE? – a guessing game about extraordinary women!

If you have kids or like games with a message, then here’s something for you. A handcrafted and painted version of the classic Guess Who, turned into a product teaching kids about extraordinary women. Apart from guessing, they’ll learn tons of facts from their lives and get some valuable inspiration. Did I mention it also looks great?

UPCOMING DECEMBER GAMES

Chai

Simple but charming game for an equally simple theme – tea. The game about brewing this drink is about to join KS tomorrow, and actually looks rather impressive. This card drafting and card collection game, makes you visit markets for most exquisite ingredients and additives like milk or herbs, and serve the tea to your customers.

Status: Launches December 4th

Tainted Grail: the Fall of Avalon

Risky launch in the most shopping crazy month of the year couldn’t stop the guys from Awaken Realms. The game is set in a dark version of the world known from arthurian legends. Core version includes 8 minis, over 700 cards, 220 pages of story and much, much more. Here’s our preview article

Status: Launches December 5th

Fences

Any fans of good old Carcassonne here? We might have something for you. A restarted and upgraded May project will make it to Kickstarter in about a week. Lots of tile placement, closing areas for points and agricultural setting sound like enough to make me tempted. It also shouldn’t be too expensive (my guess is: 20-30 USD) so why not back it?

Status: Launches December 11th

luodo ninjaLooking at your list I would choose Tainted Grail as my pick of the month. Something so huge and thematically deep feels too tempting. Second place award goes to Chai. It looks delicious and reminds me of the realms I adore.
