What was the last thing you preordered or Kickstarted, and why?

Some RPG something-or-another.  Either K. Crawford's / SineNomine offering or Pinnacle's Weird War One, I think.

Can we post pc games?

Iron Harvest 1920 because it has mechs, alternate history, and steampunk aesthetics.

IIRC The Iron Harvest game and the new Scythe PC game are both based on boardgame precursors, so I will take that as my slant 😎

Got 4 board games on pre-order via Kickstarter.  Brass: Birmingham and Brass: Lancashire should be here within a few weeks. Warfighter: WWII Pacific is slated for August so I expect it in October.  U-BOAT is the one I’m most excited for.  That’s out in December hopefully.

I also pre-ordered this book from Osprey.  Should be here next week. Hitlerjugend Soldier vs Canadian Soldier: Normandy 1944

Seal Team Flix on pre-order.... because it looks cool and seems moderately groggy.

Cyrano may disabuse you of that notion ;)

Skies Above the Reich preorder.  Saw some good AAR's at the Qt3 forums and good comments at BGG.

GMT's Stalingrad '42 by Mark Simonitch.

I like Holland '44 and think the rest of the "series" (it's not really a series, and the rules change in between games but are roughly comparable) is nice as well. I'm supporting the new editions of a number of them through the P500 program. Coming from a digital wargaming background, they're also more easy to get into than some of the more abstract releases that are popular lately.

There are some other games that I'm interested in as well, but that will have to wait until more financial means are available as GMT releases are nearly always at least a year away from the point they're on P500 whereas a company Compass Games has a much shorter pre-order/completion cycle.

Thankfully, if all goes well I'll join the Stalingrad '42 test team next month so the wait before I can play that will hopefully be short.
