GARPA returns for more pre-order goodies ~
HOLDFAST: North Africa 1941-42 (Worthington Publishing)
$21k of $2500, ends 15 March 2016
Worthington’s Holdfast series is back. After Russia and Korea, they guys head to North Africa. The standard Holdfast features are back, with fog of war, fast play times, and engaging turn sequences that keep players constantly guessing about what’s up next. Like every other North Africa game, you need a table that’s about 24 inches wide and 28374652938762 feet long, but you’ll be chasing panzers across the sands before you know it. Rumble over to their campaign page and you can fire off your pledge.
OK, so we’ve got something completely different for you this week.

Hawk The Hunter (Terry Marcel)
$19k of $500k, ends 1 OCT 2015
Remember the old fantasy flick Hawk the Slayer? Of course you do. You totally plundered it for campaign ideas for your early no-prefix D&D games. Jack Palance chewing scenery. The hokey rapid-fire elf-archer effects. The cross-necklace-of-course-it’s-a-hidden-knife saving the day at the end. Well it’s taken them 30 years, but they finally got around to trying to make the sequel, and they’re kickstarting it. You can start at $5, and score the RiffTrax quip-along, and top out at a couple of grand that gets you a part in the movie. Why are you still here instead of pledging the campaign? Oh right, you’re here to watch the movie.
The siren song of pre-orders, begging for your wallet to open up and dispense your hard-earned shekels within.
Fog & Friction (Pondfoot Games)
£2k of £14k, ends 31 May 2015
Another WWII card game? Why not?! Fog & Friction gets you into the battles of the Western front with a nifty two-battlefields-at-the-same-time mechanic that forces you to balance your efforts to keep your opponent guessing where the damage is coming from next. The artwork is period-evocative, and because the designers are based in the UK, the Commonwealth are not given second-shrift by the over-abundance of Yanks running around the game like they saved the world by themselves. Flip over to their campaign page and shoot off a few bucks. Half of our forum crew are already backing them, so you’ll have plenty of folks to play and discuss with.
