Love This Theme

Crowdfunding

Anyone else looking at this?  I know we often speak of slowing down on Kickstarters.  I'm really excited about the mechanics and theme.  I'm also so happy they have a more affordable Meeple option!  As many know I often prefer Meeples anyway.

Sheesh! Over $1 million already. 

I don’t get the love for Awaken Realms. I don’t really think any of their games are that great. Change my mind!

Also - their name bothers me. Seems like it should be AwakenED Realms. Just me.

Haha, I get that.  I'm actually not familiar with any of their other work.  Obviously I will be doing more research before backing but it does look like something that I'd enjoy at first glance.

Also, I think I'm okay even if I don't like the look of their other stuff.  I backed Western Legends by Kolossal Games and have had no interest in anything else they've put out.  Quite frankly I feel like they tried to pump out too much too fast.  Everything else has been underwhelming in the desire to play category for me.

Haven't played anything by them. Tainted Grail: The Fall of Avalon was the only one that remotely interested me. But, it was not something I wanted to spend that sort of money on. 

*I do think this looks interesting though. Not as interesting as tainted Grail.... But a decent price, and I like wooden meeples.

Yes. I'm thinking about backing it. But, I don't think I will.

I put in $1 today just so I could get the dragon if I do end up upping it in pledge manager.  I will do more research but it does look like a decent amount of game for $70 (after shipping).  So that is compelling to me.

Yeah it just launched.  Excited to see how it goes.

It does look super cool. And I'm so down with the wooden meeples over the plastic minis. I'll probably always go down to wooden meeples to save money.

Yeah, I actually think it'll be a better visual experience with Meeples.  Also, aren't you supposed to be working? Haha!

NOW I'm done... and let me tell you, it is so hard to focus with so many people around haha
