Kickstarter Roundup: Master Sweets, go past the Tipping Point, and Deep Space your D6
by Calvin Wong
Actually ten games in one box, with modes ranging from competitive baking to player elimination via cookbooks, and the co-operative 'World vs Cake' - Master Sweets has a mode for everyone.
Hailed as 'really clever' by the famous Rahdo, Master Sweets looks fun and is fairly cheap at a reasonable 30 USD for the box.
Tipping Point: The climate change card game
Described as SimCity with cards, Tipping Point requires players to survive climate disasters that become more frequent as CO2 levels rise.
Educational and strategic, players must cater to the needs of your citizens and make choices about how to expand and develop their city at the cost of further impacting the climate - do you behave selfishly and grab the biggest slice of the pie, or go green and make the planet better for everyone?
You can make that hard choice here.
Deep Space D-6: Armada
A Co-operative worker placement game - in space! Deep Space D-6 has expanded into a new genre as you assemble your ship, recruit a crew, and complete missions in order to defeat the evil empire.
Calling to mind video games like FTL, the look is slick, the style is cute, and it's from a proven designer using a proven system. Go check it out.
