Fuji Koro – Dungeon Crawlers Meet Euro and Volcanoes
article by Kick.Agency [2019-04-16]
Fuji Koro is a game where players take on the roles of brave samurai sent by the shogun to restore artifacts hidden within the volcano, that’s supposed to shoot out an ocean of lava in a matter of moments. The situation on the board is on fire, and so is the situation on Kickstarter, as the game keeps having plenty of success.

A beautiful game…

Fuji Koro charms people with its design right away. First: the person responsible for illustrations is Miguel Coimbra, known for 7 Wonders, Cyclades, The Others and many, many more. Second: the huge box is filled to the brim with elements such as miniatures of samurai and most importantly… dragons! That’s right, if we’re dealing with a mountain and treasures, the dragons simply had to make an appearance!

REVIEW: Imnia – Our First Impressions
article by Kick.Agency [2019-04-16]
Last week we’ve received our early reviewer copy of Imnia – a first tabletop game by BlackSea Interactive. After some hours spent playing we could finally put together a proper review. So how is the game? We’ve collected all of our impressions below. Enjoy!

A Race for Victory

Imnia has a race-like feeling. The player who manages to build the first wonder wins. As the building process starts only after you reach the maximum level of influence – the game becomes naturally divided into 2 parts. The first consists of building your engine and progressing through the influence track, while the second focuses on generating the currency necessary to fund your wonder. You need a total of 42 currency units paid in three steps (7, 14 and 21).

Aeon’s End: The New Age – a Real Treat for Deck Building Fans
article by Kick.Agency [2019-02-20]
Aeon’s End is a pretty big name in the board game world. The first one appeared on Kickstarter in April 2016. 3 years have passed, and the fans could enjoy a new edition, 1 huge expansion, some smaller expansions and a legacy version as well. Now it’s time for The New Age – an edition that will merge all the existing content together!

A New Age of Aeon’s End


Each successive installment of Aeon’s End brought small changes to the mechanics, but also added a huge amount of content. As the game is based on 3 key elements: heroes, nemeses and the market – adding new cards to each of these increases the amount of things to do and boosts replayability. Aeon’s end: The New Age expands the game too (200+ market cards, 100+ nemesis cards, new heroes and nemeses), but goes a step further.

Hyperspace – Sandy Petersen Goes to Outer Space
article by Kick.Agency [2019-02-11]
Gaming industry has plenty of living legends, but few can boast such amount and diversity of finished projects as Sandy Petersen. Some of you know him as the designer of Call of Cthulhu RPG. Others recognize the guy from his video game contributions to all time classics like Civilization, Doom or Age of Empires. Lately, he’s been putting more focus on creating tabletop games, and on Kickstarter we’ve already seen titles like Cthulhu Wars, Orcs Must Die or Planet Apocalypse.

Hyperspace, Petersen’s newest title, will take you to dangerous outer space as a colonizer who’s trying to expand an empire and achieve glory. What makes it innovative?

Valor & Villainy: Minions of Mordak – an Assymetric Game Charms Kickstarter
article by Kick.Agency [2019-02-11]
Valor & Villainy: Minions of Mordak managed to get tons of backers on Kickstarter. People were rather quiet about the game before the campaign began, but Skybound Games needed only about an hour to get it funded. What made their tabletop creation so popular?

One Against All


All players but one, play the game as heroes, wandering the world while looking for ancient shrines. Finding them is the only way to stop an evil wizard called Mordak.

Mordak is the character, that the final player plays as. He’s got the task of defeating all intruders and achieving final, limitless power!

So: we’re dealing with an assymetrical game, which sadly eliminates the ability to play solo. At least for now, as the creators are promising lots of expansions, and they may contain not only the solo variant, but a co-op one as well.

The world, where we’ll have to fight, consists of 25 locations placed in a somewhat random manner. Heroes will traverse them, discover new places, find treasures… or enemies. Revealed servants of evil become controlled by Mordak. Heroes fight them using dice, same with casting one-use spells.

You probably know how much I love solo modes, especially after announcing the Tentaccolade for the game of the year. Tangled Timelines is a card game, that has popped up on Kickstarter this week, and despite being described mainly as a multiplayer game, solo mode was what drew me in.

Thankfully, the author did what most creators should do to attract backers. He used Tabletopia and Tabletop Simulator. Allowing people to test the game quickly and see that it’s fun is one of the best practices in the Kickstarter tabletop community. Now here I am, after testing the game, and checking out the official livestream. So how is it?

Basic Info


Tangled Timelines takes you to the world, where time travel is possible, but as a result many heroes from different timelines get mixed up and need rescuing. This may often include helping their past and future selves: kind of what we’ve seen in Back to the Future movies. Colorful theme mixed with time travel also reminds me of the Re: Zero anime series, which I totally adore. Now before we begin talking about solo mode, a few words about the…

Newspeak – Turn Your Friday Party Into a Dystopia in 30 minutes!
article by Kick.Agency [2019-01-23]
Newspeak is a tabletop game, that presents a dark, yet depressingly realistic future, where Orwell’s vision from ”1984” became real thanks to smartphones, Augmented Reality and social media.

People track each other and know almost everything about all living beings around them. Everyone is being watched by everyone and there’s barely any way to stay safe… Unless you know a thing or 2 about hacking and feel brave enough to try breaking the system.

Newspeak takes inspiration not only from the classic book about the Big Brother, but also pop culture pieces like Mr. Robot and Black Mirror – all known for their hopeless depictions of the world, that might await us.

Suburbia Collector’s Edition – an Amazing Rerelease
article by Kick.Agency [2019-01-22]
Suburbia is a well known board game, that’s only few spots away from BBG’s Top 100 list (sitting at 103 right now). The game has already had two bigger, and two smaller expansions released. Now, Bezier Games has a real treat for all fans of the title. A special Collector’s Edition that includes all the released elements and… adds many more!

Suburbia


The first edition of Suburbia got released back in 2012. Each player is building his own city, adding building tiles to his own starting board. These are bought from the market and available to everyone. Constructions increase population and income, while additionally affecting neighboring tiles. For example: residential buildings near parks are a great idea, but locating them close to factories/airports might be a bad move.
