ENGN 144 – Kickstarter Roundup: Fantasy Throwdown

The Kickstarter roundup crew is back! Liz from Beyond Solitaire and Jeremy from Jambalaya Plays Games rejoin Jason as we take a tour through all of the amazing projects we have been playing lately. This week, all of our games share the fact that they have fantasy-based themes.

First, Jeremy and Liz insisted that ENGN re-visit our review of Aeon’s End: Legacy (2:44). Jason was up and down with his thoughts, so Liz and Jeremy want to set him straight! Next up, Liz shares about Call to Adventure (9:30), the very, very light dice chucking game of making a fantasy character and living out an adventure story. We’ll let you know if it’s worth it for “real’ gamers.

After that, Jason and Jeremy get into two games that both put new school design chrome on old school, dice driven, epic games engines. Jason chats about Gloom of Kilforth (21:20) and Jeremy shares about Folklore: The Affliction (36:50).

Finally, we get into a little chat about folks who consistently ask for fantasy game recommendations on different online groups and forums. There are so many! We recommend a few more that might have flown under your radar.
