I present to you the new Crowdfunding Collection #64, including every tabletop project started between 01.07. till 01.14.

After a rather calm first week, 2018 is gaining momentum with Kickstarters Make/100 incentive, leading to quite some interesting projects.
My personal favorite project, which I backed, is Coin & Blood. A small OSR game that sees the players assume characters who usually are antagonists in fantasy stories.  The Vigilante Hack is somewhat similar, though rather founded in the superhero genre than in the fantasy one.
The D13 RPG offers an interesting story game approach and facilitates a horror game with d13. Am curious and had the project bookmarked for a closer look. Infinite Galaxies, on the other hand, is the first PbtA system for 2018, exploring the SF genre.
The shoutouts wouldn’t be complete without a mention of John Carter from Modiphius.
This time around am as well intrigued by both of the (PFRPG) supplements. At the one hand, there’s Faerie Fire which got a great 80s retro look to itself, at the other hand, and even more so Path of the Black Flag for attempting to introduce anarchy (as a political system) to a fantasy setting.
Next, to those you’ll find an interesting gamebook, cool dice, quite some non-tabletop RPG games that caught my eyes and more, take a look:

I present to you the new Crowdfunding Collection #63, including every tabletop project started between 01.01. till 01.07.).

In this collection, you’ll find the first crowdfunding projects started in 2018.
Amongst them Frankenstein Faktoria, a rather rule-light tabletop RPG in which you’ll assume the role of one of Dr. Frankensteins creations. The game does define various body parts (torso, arms, legs etc.) separately and offers an interesting conflict for the player. Whether to tighten his monsters screws and have it be dumb but brutal or loosen them and have it be smart but physically inept. An imho interesting concept and a game worth having a look.
DestinyQuest IV is a gamebook with nice looks and an interesting concept. As for settings, I would recommend fans of Savage Worlds to have a look at Children of the Apocalypse and fans of PFRPG at Widows Tear.
Next to those you’ll find interesting supplements like Dice Dungeons (to roll up stuff), reprints of a Folio, mini-dice and more cool projects. See for yourself:

I present to you the new Crowdfunding Collection #62, including every tabletop project started between 21.17 till 12.31.

To start of fresh into the next year there’s a new, rather small, collection.
In regards to the corebooks am most enamored with Nightcrawl. The game offers a Noire setting, a rather light rule system and an apparently nice creator. Thus it’s the last project I backed in 2017. With Cyneric’s Call you’ll find an original, rich fantasy setting along with a d12 based system. If you do like GM-less games you might like to take a look at  Bastille, a tabletop rpg that utilizes cards and might almost be a boardgame hybrid.
Caffeinated Conquests is a fresh Patreon project. I do follow their YT channel for quite a while and so far tremendously enjoyed their short Let’s Plays, the RPG-Imaginarium and the funny „How not to play a /VtM Clan/“ sketches. Thus I do support it and recommend it whole heartidly.
Next to those you find a small, varied number of other projects, like campaigns, settings, soundscapes and even some tabletop rpg inspired neckties. Just take a look:

I present to you the new Crowdfunding Collection #61, including every tabletop project started between 12.03 till 12.17.

Right before the holidays the numbers of projects did wind down somewhat.
Yet there’s at least one project I personally important, Love Tove. It does offer the opportunity to support the Swedish tabletop designers Anders Gillbring and Tove Gillbring in their fight against cancer. Offering them the opportunity to spend their days left together.
Another interesting project is Dice Men: Games Workshop 1975 to 1985, a book focusing at a part of gaming history.
Among the few core books I would consider Havenlore the more interesting of both, even though or maybe because of it being a project apparently close to the heart of the designers. Storyverse at the other hand is a gamebook which attempts to combine the book with an App.
Fans of Savage Worlds might have fun with the Sherwood setting while those who follow the Old Ones might like to take a look at the The Idol of Cthulhu scenario. The supplements will extend D&D 5E with a Creature Codex as well as Hunters Mark. Well, and there are quite some adventures for D&D as well as PFRPG.
In regards of the foreign language books, the Spanish tabletop RPG So Below caught my eye. In general you’ll find plenty other projects, whether dice, Accessoires, terrain stuff and more:

I present to you the new Crowdfunding Collection #60, including every tabletop project started between 11.25 till 12.03.

This time around the collection is quite compact, though it does sport a surprising number of projects in French, Spanish and Italian.
In regards of the English projects I am most fascinated by Sigmata. A rpg that will see you take up arms against a fascist system in the 80s. If you are a Fate Core player, you might like to check out Warsong. As for the Story Games there’s School of Wizard & Witches on the one hand. A tabletop rpg that tries to integrate audio books. At the other hand Story Time Cards, a card game that’s aiming to offer kids a fun, cooperative way to create stories.
As for the other RPGs, am quite fascinated by the French project for Aegyptus and the Spanish one for fRáGiL.
Of course those ain’t all the projects, just take a look at the whole deal:

I present to you the new Crowdfunding Collection #59, including every tabletop project started between 11.13 till 11.25.

Back from a small vacation break and first time round ready on a Sunday.
My personal favorite of the list is Capharnaum. It’s an originally French game set in an Arabian „1001 nights“ setting, it sports a solid and tested system and really nice artworks. Next to offering a quickstart for free. I do really hope it funds and cracks some of those nice stretch goals open. Next to that I like NuÆther. Mostly for the fact that a character can happily mutate body parts, which sounds fun and seems supported by the system. Changeling: The Lost 2nd Edition aims to fund the latest iteration of the Chronicles of Darkness game. While I personally don’t play CofD games to often, I heard nothing but good stuff about this edition, and am tempted to back it.
As for the other games, Flash Gordon works the setting to be used with Savage Worlds and the Aventuria Compendium extends world of the game „The Dark Eye“.
Next to those you’ll find aplenty other projects. Among those, cool dices, nice audio stuff, a RPG themed Alphabet book, interesting looking terrains and some non-rpg games that tickled my fancy.  See yourself:

I present to you the new Crowdfunding Collection #58, including every tabletop project started between 11.06 till 11.13.

This collection presents the Tablecloth II by Smirking Dragon which offers new opportunities to dress up your gaming table.
Yet I personally fallen victim to the charm of Oubliettes, Sorcery & Reavers (OS&R), an OSD inspired game, offering an interesting look and fascinating system. If you like your OSR more traditional you might enjoy Basic Hovels and Humans.
Next to those Kids on Bikes is a PbtA inspired story game continuing the ever popular 80s hype. Worlds Unkown does promise to provide a generation spanning game using the Three-Stat systen, Monster Hunters the adaption of the famous book series for Savage Worlds and Marauder Task Force a quite wargamey tabletop RPG experience.
Next to those you find many cool projects, like smoking dice towers, frosty terrains, a dungeon lootbox and more. Take a look:

I present to you the new Crowdfunding Collection #57, including every tabletop project started between 11.03 till 11.06.

It’s a somewhat shorter collection, yet back to the regular schedule.
You’ll find a tabletop RPG based upon the miniature boardgame Time of Legends: Joan of Arc, the D&D modul Sylvanhome, an opportunity to get your RPG stuff drawn, a container box, nice looking coins and a few, cool terrain projects. Next to that I included a box filled with puzzles and a swedish RPG game and campaing box. Take a look:

I present to you the new Crowdfunding Collection #55, including every tabletop project started between 10.19 till 11.03.

After taking a short break thanks to attending SPIEL and Halloween, am back with no less than 65 projects.
The collection is headed by Stacy’s (Dellorfano) Cancer Fight Fund. A project I consider of utmost importance as it is literally about a life of a gamer.
In regards of the tabletop projects, I discovered Dragons Conquer America during the SPIEL event. It’s a game where people can utilize dragons to either conquer the Americas or defend them, maybe doing something else. The game uses the same system as the FAITH RPG and got me to pledge for it.
You’ll find two more cool Fantasy games in Seeker and Far Off Land (a game using Fate). Though you might as well support playing a Bourne-like techno-thriller with the Operators RPG, experience SF Horror with Xenomorphs or try to pull a cyberpunk heist with Toonpunk.
Among the Story Games you could choose one of several games collected under the Tragedies of Middle School game, create stories using Storyworld and use Foreplay… to indulge into potentially erotic tabletop RPG fields.
I would like to give a shout out to the the gamebook NEVERLAND. I backed the Alice in Wonderland KS from the creator and am very happy with it.
Among the German projects I would point to the, kinda strange, dice machine, the nice LARP photobook and the Jagged Alliance boardgame. The projects are all in English, well and while JA isn’t a role-playing game, it’s imho still worth checking.
Next to those you’ll find plenty more, cool projects. More enticing games, dice, beautiful cards, cool containers (specially the Spanish book-container), Series, Accessories, Software and more. Well, and a few which are cancelled/finished thanks to my break.
Just, see for yourself:

I present to you the new Crowdfunding Collection #55, including every tabletop project started between 10.09 till 10.19.).

You’ll find a few foreign language projects. The Sprawl is translated to German as Der SprawlTales of the Loop will be translated to French and The Dark Eye will get a Dutch translation as Het Oog des Meesters. If you are curious about The Dark Eye and LARP, a crowdfunding for the (German) LARP rules for The Dark Eye is on its way.
Though, as to get to the meat. I got enamored by CATaclysm. A game in which you play anthropomorphic cats, with a setting that does invoke memories of Nausicaä … that’s at least for me. Yet I do feel tempted by Jim Pintos Praxis: Black Monk game as well. I’ve read one of the Praxis games and it’s a really interesting concept.
Then it’s October again and Halloween is encroaching. Thus there are several games placed in the horror genre: Don’t Look Back (Urban Horror), Aliens & Astroids (SF Horror) and B-Horror (well d’uh). Next to those, The Road to Bethlehem is a tabletop rpg / boardgame that caught my interest. It is the first game focused on religion, Christianity to be specific, to actually look competent and fun.
There are of course more games. Like the D20 / D30 RPG & DCC Dice Chain Sets set, which convinced me by presenting beautiful and strange dice. I am as well still considering getting the Wee Beasties kids book, as it looks really, really cute.
Though there are plenty more cool projects, just take a look:
