On Kickstarter there is more crowdfunding for board games again. Every Tuesday evening, countless new campaigns are launched, including game titles from self-publishers, but also board and card games from well-known publishers. This week, among others, Nova Aetas Renaissance from Ludus Magnus Studio, Midnight Murder Mysteries in the second edition of Multifaced Editions or Bios-Mesofauna from Sierra Madre Games will start.


The main day of the week for the launch of Kickstarter campaigns is Tuesday, but this is not the only day of the week on which authors and publishers approve their game idea for “crowd funding”. Among other things, these 17 campaigns are about to start this week or are already running.

A highlight: Darkest Dungeon from Mythic Games

Various board games, but also card games, dare to step into crowdfunding. One of the highlights this week is Darkest Dungeon, which Mythic Games is launching. The miniatures game is based on the video game of the same name by Red Hook, which was also funded via Kickstarter.

It is a cooperative board game, more precisely: a cooperative dungeon crawler. Players slip into the roles of adventurers and tackle eleven missions over the course of the game. In essence, it's about reaching the “Darkest Dungeon” and defeating a mighty Obermotz there.
