Betwixt and Between

A card drafting board game of positioning, combo-creation, and magical fae, Betwixt and Between features amazing artwork in a classic, hand-drawn style.

Players are mystics who enter the realm of fae, attempting to create pathways that allow them to harvest magical essence and create powerful spells. You can check out the project here.

Red Outpost

In the 70s, a secret Soviet space program settled an alien planet and established a communist haven - the Red Outpost. This communist worker placement game emphasizes worker morale, shared resources, and a lack of private property - however this is NOT a co-operative game, as the player who makes the largest contribution to the cause will be declared the winner.

Red Outpost looks fab - a cool twist on worker placement with a slick retro style. You can back it here

SANCTORVM

A big box co-op game, Sanctorvm (I'm going to resist the capitals from here in) comes with both a 60 hour campaign mode and individual missions that can be played in a single 60 minute session.

Featuring a bunch of adventure books, six characters to pick from, solo play, GM-less play via the co-op mission mode, and even a soundtrack vinyl, Sanctorvm looks like it has a ton to offer anyone who wants to buy in. The campaign mode comes with an adult content warning, but the mission mode is safe for all (or as safe as a sci-fi horror game can be at any rate)

You can back it here.

I thought about going in on it. I think I will wait until retail. They still, last I checked, didn't have a solo mode.

Yet more proof that having more diverse ideas makes better games.

It does have a solo mode now.
