Episode 125 – Kickstarter Roundup: Wild Purple Cat Gardens

Liz from Beyond Solitaire and Jeremy from Jambalaya Plays Games are back for more recently delivered Kickstarter fun!

Liz and Jeremy start us off with a highly portable and quirky cult classic which is finally seeing the published light of day (5:38). Then Jason and Liz share about Direwild (12:35), the latest game to take a stab at marrying deckbuilding and dungeon crawling. Our discussion gets into some larger points about deckbuilders – what we enjoy, what we think makes them good, etc.

Liz and Jeremy jump back in to share about Donning the Purple (31:21) a ‘king of the hill’ style game that might offer some more aggressive play than you might be used to. Finally, a game which is the complete opposite of aggressive – Cat Rescue (40:11) a cooperative, small card game about training cats for adoption. Yes, we went from murdering one another for power and political gain to training cats. Yet another reason to love Kickstarter – you can find games about… anything, really!
