What’s Cool on Kickstarter

There’s many interesting items to be found on Kickstarter, and here are the coolest ones this week.

Starvation Cheap: Planetary Warfare for Stars Without Number
We haven’t tried Stars Without Number yet, but adding new rules for military campaigns sounds pretty awesome.

“Starvation Cheap is a military campaign supplement for the free Stars Without Number sci-fi tabletop role-playing game. It’s written to provide the reader with all the tools they need for building a sandbox-style military campaign focused on planetary armies and mercenary legions. Everything from the construction of wars and vital military objectives down to the gritty details of building a battlefield adventure is provided in this 100+ page book.

While written for Stars Without Number, the great majority of the tools in this book are system-neutral, perfectly usable with the sci-fi game of your choice.”


Cardboard Clothing: Apparel for the Modern Board Gamer
This is a neat collection of shirts that reference some of the more popular board games out there.

“Cardboard Clothing was founded to provide a way for boardgamers to express themselves and their love of the boardgaming hobby.

All of our designs are created by us and based on modern boardgame staples as well as some of our current favorite games.”


Let’s Play Dice
The pips on these dice are different, but it’s supposed to be completely balanced. That’s not the most important thing for me for dice, but they’re pretty awesome looking.

“The challenge was to create a perfectly balanced design for each side: they all have the same volume (mass) removed one every surface, so no side is heavier than others. Our concept was use a shape that can be divided up into 6 parts, with always the same surface occupied: Rectangle and Round shapes offer the most attractive look!”


Carbon Fiber and Luminescent Rings
So pretty! So glowing! There’s others with inlays that I think are pretty cool looking as well.


Still active!
