Dead of Winter is a meta-cooperative psychological survival game. This means players are working together toward one common victory condition--but for each individual player to achieve victory, they must also complete their personal secret objective. This secret objective could relate to a psychological tick that's fairly harmless to most others in the colony, a dangerous obsession that could put the main objective at risk, a desire for sabotage of the main mission, or worst of all: vengeance against the colony! Certain games could end with all players winning, some winning and some losing, or all players losing. Work toward the group's goal but don't get walked all over by a loudmouth who's only looking out for their own interests!

Map Maker Adventures
Goal: $3,316,880 / $1,500,000
Ends On: 1/19/2019
Map Maker Adventures (MMA) is an old school, pencil and paper, dungeon crawl, role-playing game. You can play solitary, or with your friends up to 4 players, without a DM. All you need to play is this book set, several pieces of paper, a pencil and a D20 die for each player. In this game, you belong to the Imperial Expeditionary Force, as a cartographer. Your team was assigned to a border town southwest of the Empire to investigate a series of frequent, strange events. The appearance of evil creatures, the missing of town folk, a large number of livestock deaths, the wilting of farmland and forests, even the church has been sealed by the town guard since the priest carried out a terrible massacre of the villagers in the church. The town went crazy. You'll follow the advance troops to investigate and produce detailed maps and information about the town and its surrounding locations; especially the DUNGEONS. Each MMA book set comes with one rulebook and four adventure books. Each adventure book contains all you need to progress through one stage of the adventure, which includes 5 dungeon difficulty ranks. The entire set will include four stages and cover ranks 1-20.See Kickstarter
Stonehenge and the Sun
Goal: $2,041,759 / $2,200,000
Ends On: 1/19/2019
A new games experiment which challenges and expands the scope of tabletop games. Who built those gigantic stones in the middle of an open field? There is a theory that Stonehenge was once an observatory that predicted the summer solstice by the orientation of its stones. Humans also seek sheer happiness from the very act of stacking up pieces, and we know that from our childhood experience of building blocks. Stonehenge vividly manifests in its erection and collapse the governing law of this planet: gravity. It is due to gravity, that we can perceive the difficulty of accumulating such gigantic stones and realizing such an enterprise. Stonehenge is truly “the masterpiece of building blocks,” or more precisely “the masterpiece of building stones” which continues to challenge us with its very presence to this day. What in the world inspired humankind to create and stack such gigantic stones?See Kickstarter

Handbok för Superhjältar - rollspelet!
Goal: $134,618.71 / $50,000
Ends On: 1/28/2019
Hej, mitt namn är Lisa och jag bor här i Rosenhill. Det är en mysig liten stad på kanske femton tusen invånare. Jag flyttade hit till min mormor när jag var nio år. I början tyckte jag inte alls om att bo här. Jag hade inga kompisar och jag var mobbad i skolan. Men en dag när jag gick till biblioteket hittade jag en bok. Handbok för Superhjältar hette den. Även om jag inte trodde på superhjältar lånade jag hem den. Jag hade ju ingenting att förlora tänkte jag. Jag började träna för att stå upp mot de som mobbade mig. Det gick inte riktigt som jag hade tänkt mig. Mitt liv förändrades för alltid.See Kickstarter
Tsuro: Phoenix Rising
Goal: $95,283 / $10,000
Ends On: 2/9/2019
An exhilarating board game of tiles, floating lanterns, and constellations for 2-8 players. In Tsuro: Phoenix Rising, an exhilarating new entry in the classic Tsuro series, each player is a phoenix, soaring across the board in an effort to reach glowing lanterns and transform them into new stars in the night sky. The first player to collect seven star tokens wins the game! Tsuro: Phoenix Rising builds upon the foundation of classic Tsuro – you must play tiles to extend your path, traverse the board, and be aware of your surroundings – but it adds exciting new features such as double-sided path tiles that allow for diagonal movement and can be flipped and rotated to choose your destination, as well as a revolutionary new molded board. As a phoenix, you also have the astounding ability to rise from the ashes and return to the board once per game!See Kickstarter
