Here's a quick list of all of the crown funding games coming to Gamefound and Kickstarter in the next 7 days. Have a look at them all and let me know if you think any are interesting.
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim – The Boardgame is a 1-4 player co-operative game of adventure and exploration across Skyrim. Players take the roles of heroes involved in epic quests, working together to defeat their enemies and exploring the vast expanse of Skyrim. You will be able to choose character miniatures like the Khajiit, Nord, or High Elf; plan your strategy with weapons or spells; and fight your way through forgotten mines, Draugr-infested tombs, or ancient Dwemer cities to find ancient treasures and increase your power.
The players must keep an eye out as the threat increases across Skyrim as Dragons, Daedra, Trolls, and more roam the lands and wreak havoc across the holds. Players need to work together to keep the lands free, whilst balancing the demands of their most important quests.
The base game is divided into two campaigns of three chapters each. The decisions the players make from their first turn have a distinct effect on the unfolding story and encounters, making the whole campaign experience different every time you play. You can even save your progress after each game and start the next chapter with the same character, equipment, and skills.
With the numerous choices of characters, gear, magic, and skills matched with the many decisions each player makes through their quests, there are literally hundreds of hours of gameplay, with some stories not even seen based on your early decisions. The face of Skyrim can change during the game, impacting the course of the players' experience in subsequent chapters. At any time, the players can simply reset, choose another character and play style, make different choices, and experience things differently. Alternatively, pick a chapter that sounds fun and drop in to just play that adventure as a one-off.

Cards are essential. With them you can buy characters that joins your faction or event cards that will grant you interesting rewards.
Popularity is very important in this game, if you have the support of the people, you will be able to strongly link your orders, however, without the people´s approval, your cause will dwindle .
Historically, characters changed factions, this is also true in the game. So a few characters may change their minds over time, according to their preferences, sadly joining the opposing side.
In the hybrid chess game 'POWER62®DELTA', your objective is to capture the opponents' EPK (Eranium Processor Key) or eliminate the opponent's Emperor. Players start out on opposing sides of the playing board placing their characters — EPK, PTxCreatures, BLACK HOLE and Terrain Obstacle pieces — in a pre-set position. From there they take turns trying to out-strategize their opponent to win the game.
There's only one strategy game that has withstood the test of time: CHESS. Using that as a foundation, we built up a set of new gameplay mechanics to create the next generation of chess. Unlike in chess, the movement of your pieces are controlled by a deck of Move Cards. For additional offensive and defensive capabilities, the Power Cards help randomize gameplay. And then, there are dangerous obstacles like Terrain Obstacles to worry about, and the SPR-8 Markers are the Mother of All Game Changers for each player. It's like chess on steroids. Finally obstacles like Black Holes and Terrain/Obstacles, featuring some of the exoteric landscapes and flora seen in our soon-to-be-released online comic! (Coming 12/2021).
Another innovation for the game play is the added QR code in the cards to help define the movement of the piece, quickly.Even if you play the same deck multiple times, the outcome will differ. "Luck of the Draw" on the Move cards, Power cards and SPR-8 markers has a huge factor in whether your strategy works or crumbles.
STORY: Titania, Queen of the Fae, has grown tired of humanity’s disdain for nature’s splendor. She plans to liberate Gaia, and has summoned you, her High Council of Sorcerers to manifest her will.
Work together to consult the heavens and read runes. Mobilize Titania’s loyal Fae and port them to Gaia, where they will recover her crown from the six hallowed citadels. Will you divine the path to victory? Gather your golems! Summon your sirens! The Earth trembles before... Titania Ascending.
GAME OVERVIEW: Titania Ascending is a cooperative “flip and write” (and write) game for two to six players in which you and your friends become Titania’s trusted High Council, coordinating the liberation of Gaia. In phase 1, you will populate your map with the units you want to send to Gaia; in phase 2, you will use your completed map to support the invasion.
FILL IN YOUR MAP: In phase 1, Divination, you arrange Fae and Dragons, recruit aides (special assistants), and select the hallowed units who will seize the 6 hallowed citadels and secure the Shards of Gaia for Titania’s crown. Take turns choosing which unit everyone will draw on their maps (map/player board), coordinating with other players to divine hallowed units, and recruit aides to earn rule-bending abilities. The phase succeeds when all six hallowed units have been divined. You fail if everyone passes before you complete this goal.
USE YOUR MAP: In phase 2, Ascension, you open portals to Gaia (Earth) and send Titania’s units into the field, using your hallowed units to seize the hallowed citadels. Take turns selecting missions to launch and shading in areas on your map that meet the mission requirements; meanwhile, the other players fill in similar areas on their maps. After you launch each mission, you can also send your hallowed units to capture the hallowed citadels. If you capture all six citadels, you restore Titania’s crown, she ascends the throne of Gaia, and you win.
WINNING AND LOSING: You win together by divining six hallowed units during the Divination phase, then by capturing the six hallowed citadels in the Ascension, thus taking control of Gaia and saving the humans from themselves.
The whole team loses together in two ways: In phase one, Divination, you lose if all players pass before the six hallowed units have been divined. In phase two, Ascension, you lose if all players pass before claiming all six Shards of Gaia.
Monsterpocalypse brings the kaiju (giant monster) genre to the tabletop in the form of an exciting and highly strategic war game.
Designed by Matt Wilson (I), the award winning creator of Warmachine and Hordes, Monsterpocalypse utilises the critically acclaimed abilities of Privateer Press as a leading miniatures manufacturer to enter a new category of product with a property that will appeal to a world-wide fan base of all ages.
The players take the role of different factions (dinosaurs, robots, aliens, monsters and so on) fighting with one large (Godzilla size) creature combined with a steady flow of smaller units to support it. The battlefield is a cityscape (poster map) with building models integral to the game's strategy and gameplay. The game uses dice pools of custom dice that are used for both attacking and taking actions, leading to an ebb and flow between monster and unit turns. The goal for both players is to eliminate the monster on the opposing side.
Monsterpocalypse launched as a CMG in Fall 2008 with the 'Rise' block which consisted of a base set ('Rise') and two expansion sets ('I Chomp NY' and 'All Your Base'), both of which were released in 2009. The second block was released in Fall 2009 with the base set ('Now') and an expansion set ('Big in Japan') in 2010. The last expansion for the 'Now' block has still not been released as of 2015.
Each set contains large-scale monsters, as well as smaller support units and interactive buildings. Figures were sold in semi-randomized starter packs and randomized booster packs, with limited figures available only through promotional events.
In 2010 Privateer Press released the Monsterpocalypse 2 Player Battle Box, a semi-randomised set which contained everything 2 players needed to dive right into the game, including two full factions and a complete set of buildings (all from Set 1 'Rise'). In 2011 they also released Monsterpocalypse Dangerous Monster Zone or Monsterpocalypse DMZ for short. These worked as expansion packs for the 2 Player Battle Box, each containing completely fixed, faction specific sets of Set 2 'I Chomp NY' and 3 'All Your Base' miniatures. By buying the DMZs for the factions you got in your initial battle box you would have 2 complete factions and a full set of buildings from the 'Rise' block, making Monsterpocalypse much more accessible for newer players in a more non-collectible format.

The Wild-lands stand unknown...unsettled...but with the dangerous and untamed, also comes beauty and wonder. The stunning vista of the Realms is yours to discover! Search out the Four Realms—the refreshing winds of Air, the lush forests of Land, the rushing waves of Water and the burning chasms of Fire.

Players can also roll special Fortune faces that boost dice, but only if the dice they are boosting lie in specific positions on the table, a system that is new and unique to games of this kind!
Beat the challenges to score points and escape, and the next player can try to beat a new house. Fail to beat the house and the player can escape with what they've stolen, or remain and roll again - but each re-roll adds the threat of the other Ninja, who can now roll Threat dice, allowing them to shoot the active Ninja – and each other – to steal treasure! Constant interaction between all Ninja forces all players to be alert at all times.
Play proceeds in three rounds of increasing difficulty with the highest scoring player winning.
