Episode 166 – Best and Worst of Kickstarter

Kickstarter is ubiquitous with board gaming as a hobby, so we’re taking a look this week at the two best and two worst campaigns we have each personally backed on Kickstarter thus far. Plus we ask the listeners about their own KS wins and fails.

Don’t miss your chance to enter our board game giveaway, exclusively for Producer-level Patreon backers (https://www.patreon.com/bga).

For our acquisition disorders this week, Anthony offers an early hands on impression of Thanos Rising, the new avengers game out this week, and Chris digs into Rice Dice – A Spirits of the Rice Paddy Dice Game.

At the Table, we review Rising 5 and Roccoco: Jewelry Box this week as well.

Finally, we dig into eight games – four good and four not so good – that we backed on Kickstarter in our time as gamers. Yes we’ve backed more, but these ones stand out for either great or a not so great experience.
