Come check out this week’s batch of crowdfunding and Kickstarter highlights—including board games, RPGs, and STLs!

MEENAKSHI TEMPLE: Construct An Ancient Temple in 3D


The players will use 115 custom Deity statues and secure the support of 5 Patron Deities (Meenakshi, Kali, Ganesha, Saraswati, and Skanda) while trying to build their gopurams most efficiently.

By the end of the game, all players will have gorgeous constructions consisting of up to 7 levels high in front of them, and whoever scores the most victory points for their tower, secret goal, and divine blessings wins!

Diceomatic Retro Dice Spinner


Diceomatic (Dice-O-Matic) is a mechanical die that functions like a regular die but with a twist—it’s operated by pressing a button, causing a wheel to spin and land on a number (not between numbers). Diceomatic has a machine-tooled interior to provide random fair results every single time. Each Diceomatic includes 2 separate Dice.

The Diceomatic is inspired by the 1920s mechanical dice, which provided a quick and discreet option for gambling during the Prohibition era.


Dr Dhrolin’s Dictionary of Dinosaurs


We’re PalaeoGames, a team of scientists designing D&D 5e content to bring better dinosaurs to your campaigns. If you want a whole host of new dinosaurs, palaeo-themed new races, and new environments, then this is the book for you.

Everything we have designed is backed up by painstaking research. Each animal provides not only an interesting and exciting encounter but a palaeontologically accurate reconstruction. A great union of gaming and science education.

Grotten – 1 Bit Deeper


Grotten: 1 Bit Deeper is a minimalist dungeon crawler using physical tiles to generate and explore a dungeon, where you roll on random tables to fill the rooms with monsters, traps, loot, NPCs – and a final epic boss fight. The zine contains one-page rules and character creation, cut-out dungeon tiles and tokens, and lots and lots of random tables.

Grotten is perfect for both solo play and co-op, with or without a GM, as a quick and easy stand-alone game or to use as a dungeon in any fantasy system you are playing.
