What happened in the world of tabletop over the last week?
PAXAus and the semi-regular ‘mainstream media discover tabletop games’ meets this week, with The Guardian listing the eight best indie games at this years event. In the list? Burger Up. Surprise! This is also Burger Up news!
Not to be outdone, the Sydney Morning Herald also has a PAXAus tabletop-centric piece. They are obviously winning, as they packed in more nerds-per-image than The Guardian.
Kotaku look at the news the Rule & Make are working on a Hand of Fate tabletop game. The Campaigner should have more on that soon.
Here is something educational. Adelaide Roleplay Community published an article on what can lead to Game Master burn out. That is, a Game Master being unable to continue due to exhaustion. Not them going out in the street and spinning their back tires.
That didn’t take long. A ‘Scythe-esque’ game for digital platforms has been announced by King Art. It seems to draw more from artist Jakub Różalski work, then the Stonemaier Games created Scythe universe.
Speaking of Stonemaier Games, Jamey Stegmaier discussed the recent changes and additions to Kickstarter over on his blog. Don’t forget to read the comments, where Jamey goes into a little more detail on some aspects.
Some of the new Kickstarters from this week:
- Bad Words – A Twisted Tile Game
- Feudum: A nuanced game of hand & resource management
- Way of the Fighter
- Assassin´s club
- Hunting Sasquatch
- Isaribi: Fishing, Market Play, and Outwitting your Opponents
- Goblins and Sea Demons wargames miniatures
- Legends of the Jungle
- Me, Myself, and Ice Cream

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