Hello there and welcome to another edition of Kick Picks! Every Monday we will feature some of the Kickstarter Projects that have gotten our attention recently. In addition to that we’ll also be occasionally showcasing some reviews of delivered Kickstarter products as well as some interviews from people that are both running and have run Kickstarter campaigns.
Quick word of note, if you’re running an Ad Blocker, you might not see the project embeds on the right of the page. Just an FYI, whether you unblock us or not is your call.
With that out of the way let’s dive right in!
Moby Dick, or, The Card Game
Call me Ishmael.
I’m a real sucker for a card game. Something bereft of a board and just relies on the cards themselves just feels… I don’t know… pure. Not that I don’t love a thousand piece board game either, but I enjoy the relative simplicity of the cards. Might be because I’m working on a card game of my own at the moment and am kind of dialed into that mode… but that’s a Kick Picks for a MUCH later date.
What initially drew me in to Moby Dick, or, The Card Game is the fantastic art on the cards, which all have a cool woodblock type look to them which just feels like they’re tied to the book somehow. I also enjoy the theme of recruiting a crew and going out to hunt the big whales.
$30 gets you the game, and more can get you some pretty impressive looking silkscreens. Stretch Goals are currently unlocking now to add even more to the game.
