Now on Kickstarter: Abandon Planet, Quodd Heroes & Yōkai Quest

Brent | December 12, 2016

Kickstarter is a constant source of amazing and innovative board games, here are some of the latest we found that look promising!

Abandon Planet:


"From the creator of The Resistance and Avalon, Abandon Planet is a new game about escaping the meteor apocalypse. It's an experience of survival, betrayal, and fragile alliances in the moments before Earth is annihilated. Anyone who doesn't want to die on the soon-to-be-burning rock will have to team up with a partner to outfit their janky rocket transport for the interplanetary jump. But everyone's looking out for number one, and alliances can change at any time."

"Each round players secretly decide which direction to send their rocket. They reveal their choices simultaneously, and then take turns flying out to the remaining chunks of earth, to pick up what they need or steal it from each other. This would all be safe and pleasant if it weren't for the deadly meteor that will strike at the end of the round, drastically altering the map and damaging any rockets in its path. One player knows in advance where the meteor will hit, but depending on who they choose to share that information with … well, let's just say you learn who your friends are pretty quick in a meteor apocalypse."

Quodd Heroes:

"Platform video game meets tabletop miniatures game in a completely original tabletop board game experience like nothing you've ever seen or played!"

"Take on the role of an astounding cube-shaped character that moves by tumbling and has a different skill assigned to each face of its cube-shaped body.  Then, mix in incredible ability upgrades, a fantastic array of power-ups, devices, pets and ancient powerful runes.  Finally, choose one of the many different scenarios to setup your adventure and you're ready for action and mayhem in the beautiful, dangerous, and unpredictable world of Quoddria!"

Yōkai Quest:


"Yōkai Quest is a collaborative game for 1 or more players, set in a fantasy, Japan-inspired world with a chibi look. The players control brave heroes who face the evil plans of ninjas of the Red Claw and terrifying yōkai, in an action game inspired by the mechanics of beat'em up and RPG."

"In Yōkai Quest, a game is played in stages, each one represented by a board. The chosen scenario to play will specify which board must be set at each stage, where the spawn points of the yōkai are placed, the entry point of the heroes and what they must accomplish in order to advance to the next stage. At the final stage, the final boss awaits. Heroes must defeat these powerful enemies to win the scenario. The Game Box will include a variety of scenarios, and a complete campaign with its own history and development, well described in the Adventure Book."
