This past week on the tabletop

27/03/2016 –02/04/2016

What happened in the world of tabletop over the last week?

More than 26,000 Playmodil figures are used to create a war diorama.

It was the first of April, and so the April Fools jokes flew. Most were pretty lacklustre, though this jape from ThinkGeek actually looks like it would be workable.

We all love tabletop games, and we all love to eat. Board Games Enhanced provided some great ideas on how to bring a little culinary class to your next game night. All with food that won’t get grubby fingers all over your pristine board game collection!

Yet again Stonemaier Games is bringing the Kickstarter know how. This time Jamey draws inspiration from one of my favourite parts of Wolf of Wall Street, and discusses how to engage prospective backers without sounding like a sales person.

This article is from last week, but I only just discovered it. Quartz looks at a Polish board game that has been banned in Russia. It is a simulation of communist-era shopping, which apparently some Russians weren’t crazy about.

GeekDad urge you to pay attention when your children are playing in their own fantasy worlds. You may just have the next Bill Gates on your hands.

Cards Against Humanity creator Max Temkin apologises to Tumblr user horriblewarning for a transphobic card.

Nerd Union runs an interesting article by Trevor Law about why you should play dungeons and dragons with your kids.

Some of the new Kickstarters from this week:

This is not an endorsement of any of these games, creators or Kickstarter campaigns.
