What are some of the new and upcoming Kickstarter board game campaigns for this August 2017? You’ve come to the right place to find out!
Crowdfunding (most commonly through Kickstarter) is a great way to find new board games, card games and all kinds of tabletop games to add to your collection, or promote and publish your own games. Crowdfunding makes it easier for indie and new up-and-coming designers to publish their games. It’s also a great way to test your audience and gauge interest in certain themes, mechanics and so forth.
Unfiltered Gamer is lucky enough to test out a lot of these games before they even get to Kickstarter. Check out some of our recent kickstarter board game reviews, plus some other games we’re interested in watching on Kickstarter this month.
