Welcome to Purple Pawn, covering games played around the world by billions of people every day.

Welcome to this weeks Kickstarter Roundup. There are a few new entries and I’ve made some adjustments to what appears on the list.

In the past I have listed every single project, winners and losers. The list has become unwieldy with so many projects, especially those that are drawing 1 or 2% with only a few days remaining.

I have made the temporary decision to remove some projects from the list if they are showing zero signs of life. The purpose of this list is to help projects and backers come together successfully. Projects that are not drawing any backing after weeks on the list are being removed to allow room for those that are finding interest.

If you disagree feel free to let me know and we can reevaluate.

Also, there seem to be a flood of decks of cards with art work as projects. I have left a few on the list but will probably not be adding them in the future since they really aren’t games but art. A deck of cards is a deck of cards.

The list is currently at 60 including the IndieGoGo entrants.

Bold are new to the list this week.

If there are games I have missed, let me know. This weeks list was compiled while on vacation in Hawaii and it is certainly possible that I have missed something. The sand, sun, and surf have  been a bit distracting. But looking forward to getting in a game of Flash Point before we have to return to the real world.

New projects this week are in Bold.

    Couldn’t agree more! I can scroll through the whole damn list Myself. Seeing only the worthwhile game projects gives this thing real value.

    Z-Ward is not really RPG meets Karaoke but more “RPG meets Textadventure” – its a game from the parsleyseries (I have the other parts)
