Historical Board Game Kickstarters ...

Suppose someone could use miniatures instead of the game pieces.

Anyway, this game is by Daniel Mersey, same developer who created Lion Rampant and Dragon Rampant and others.

Battle Ravens: The Shieldwall Board Game...

Man, some of these look really interesting. Especially the Freeman's Farm and War Along the Great Lakes.

These folks have so far failed to deliver and communication has been almost non-existent.  This is the only time I've had this kind of thing happen, and thankfully I only lost $25, unless they ever wake up and deliver, but I'm not betting on it.

Rec'd this board game before Christmas last year.  It is gorgeous.  Haven't played it yet, although plan to do so asap.

I pledged for this ...

It has hidden movement on mini-boards.  I pledged.

Here's another historical board game on the French and Indian War ...

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1456271622/the-french-and-indian-war-1757-1759?ref=discovery&term=French%20and%20Indian%20war

I'm not sure about this one, it looks a bit like not what I'd want.  Not thrilled with them including Deerfield, but then not having anything in Maine. Plus there seems to be not much between the frontier and the big coastal cities.  I like the idea of them having a secret simultaneous movement option, although not sure I'm thrilled with block counters.  Besides, I have and enjoy "A Few Acres of Snow".

This looks like a fairly well crafted game ...

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1040417273/dawn-of-battle?ref=nav_search&result=project&term=Dawn%20of%20Battle

I am slightly sceptical over something that call itself the Dawn of Battle, and yet covers so much time.  Plus feeling like I there's no way I'd be able to take time to experience all of it's goodness.

Maybe I am just getting old.  However, for those folks not quite to this stage of life, perhaps you'd find something like this to be quite entertaining.
