What’s Cool on Kickstarter

Soulfall
Ugh. The art for this is gorgeous. The gameplay sounds simple and fun, and with an estimate of only 10 minutes/player it seems like it would be a great game to play with friends and family.

“Soulfall is a barren land brought back from the edge of destruction by a mysterious group of entities known as the Lords. Preventing the destruction of the land, the Lords gained the devotion of the remaining survivors of Soulfall. Now, various Nomad tribes begin to expand across the land, eking out a new life in the ruins of an old world, establishing outposts and living in the shadow of the powerful – and often unpredictable – Lords of Soulfall.
Soulfall is a board game for 2-4 players designed by John Clowdus and illustrated by Sandro Rybak. Game time is roughly 10 minutes per player. Each player is the leader of a Nomad tribe, leading his Nomads across the barren landscape of Soulfall. Along the way, each player will expand his tribe, build Outposts, try to gain the favor of the Lords, and collect Shards, all while preventing the other players from doing the same. The player with the highest score at the end of the game wins. ”

 

Knot Dice
These dice/blocks are so cool looking. If you like the design of Celtic knots, you should definitely think about adding this game to your collection. I think I would probably just spend a lot of time playing with the dice, not even playing the game.

“These are Knot Dice – they are games, puzzles, and artistic inspiration. They are a way to get everyone making Celtic knots. They’re not just for monks.

The paths on each die are continuous over all of the faces. By connecting several dice side by side, you form intricate Celtic knot designs. Knot Dice combine some of the best elements of dice and tiles in six games and six puzzles in the printed rulebook.”

 

Cthulhu Dice Tower
This is incredibly expensive, but so so cool looking.

“Intimidate your friends and game master! Spew forth dice from the slumber god himself. Only he know if you should succeed of fail in your gaming quest. Obey the dice!

Standing 5.5 inches tall, the Cthulhu is cast from the highest quality polymer resin. Includes all the parts need to build 1 Cthulhu horror dice tower. The basic kit dice towers are designed to be easy to assemble OR you can back the pre-painted edition.”

 

Death by Die
Ever had trouble coming up with ways to dismember your players? Well, these dice will give you all kinds of ideas on how to gorily damage your PCs.

“The first two dice in the Death by Die system are the Death and Dismemberment Dice. These two dice allow any player, game master, or other player-character to decide the fate of their own, or another player’s in-game character.
With these two dice alone you can sever appendages, heads and mash entire bodies, you can kill or be killed by fire, absurd mishap, common trap, random explosion, radiation, acid, electric shock and any other creative interpretation of the depictions of death and mayhem seen each time these dice are rolled. You can choose for the result of the roll to happen generally in an area, or specifically to an individuals body region. You’re in complete control of everything except how the dice land.”

 

Dice Display Box and Rolling Tray
I keep my dice in either a Ghiradelli box that used to have chocolate or a dice bag I knitted, but having a beautiful box like this to display them would be pretty nice. Dice rolling trays are also surprisingly handy, so having all this awesomeness in one place is pretty great.

“The Box is made with excellent care by hand right at Studio 6d6 in Wisconsin. Made of Solid Red Oak, with very attractive finger joints at the corners, this box is made to last. Finished in a beautiful natural stain and lined with felt.

The bottom section of the Box is divided into 10 sections, each of which will fit 10 16mm dice. This section, all on its own, makes a great display for your dice. The partitions are removable if you need to fit larger dice.”

The top section is removable and makes a great Rolling Tray. The inside is lined with felt in your choice of color selected from those unlocked.
