This Kickstarter doesn't look likely to succeed with less than a day to go, but I'm sure they would produce some awesome stuff if they were to make their pledge goal by some miracle:

Help us design a Sasquatch for our indie feature film project. A fantasy, drama, romance for the entire family.

Given their past work, I expect great things from this team:

Check it out and at the very least share it so they can get all the support they deserve!
Zealous Creative is raising funds for The Sasquatch of Jackson Farm on Kickstarter! We're raising funds to create a development package for our first feature project, a fantasy film for the whole family.

Now that I'm employed again, I can afford to back more kickstarters! Yay!

Here's one being put together by my friends over at Schell Games:

Are you into dinosaurs AND board games?

You may want to check this out. It seems like a pretty cool concept for a board game:

This kickstarter is soooo close! And they just announced the 4 player version of the game. If you like Go and Carcassonne, you should definitely check out this one.

The Cartography kickstarter just released a new video with much better explanation of how the game play works:

If you like Go and/or tile placement games, you should check this one out!
You could call this update 3.5. I've added a second game play video with commentary explaining a little more about how the game works. I'll explain how each turn works, how capturing works, when the game ends and how a winner is determined.http://youtu.be/W5Y9GzfePMo You can also scroll about half way down the main page or view it on YouTube at http://youtu.be/W5Y9GzfePMo Expect to see another update soon with new stretch goals and more exciti...

Not necessarily a new story/plot, but that doesn't mean it can't be a good one. Check it out:

I know I'd definitely like to see more.

And here's another crowd funded project that looks awesome!

Poll on Kotaku on favorite MOBAs. Clearly we know which one to vote for:

http://kotaku.com/whats-your-favorite-moba-1681406463
MOBAs are all the rage these days. But the hybrid part-action, part-RTS, part-turret defense genre is also so new still that there haven't been that many great ones yet. So which is your favorite?

I just found this new board game on kickstarter:

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/jonopus/cartographytm-make-your-mark-on-the-maptm

It looks like a cross between Carcassonne or Taluva and Go, all three of which are games I love!
