I Wanna Wok! Co-Op Board Game Wok Star on Kickstarter

July 13th - via: co-optimus.com
While our focus here at Co-Optimus has been and always will be cooperative video games, from time to time, we cover co-op tabletop game news as well. A hard to find, out of print co-op board game, Wok Star, is in the final hours of a successful campaign on Kickstarter. The initial print run in 2010 sold out quickly, and for the second print, publisher Game Salute took the crowd funding route to get the game into more gamers' hands. (Read More)

Casual Game Crowdfunding: Brawls, Special Agents, and Chinese Restaurants

July 10th - via: casualgamerevolution.com

Tim Fowers' Kickstarter Double-Header: Wok Star and Paperback

June 18th - via: geekdad.com
When I first reviewed Wok Star nearly three years ago, Kickstarter was still a new thing for board game publishing. Gabob, the game company behind Wok Star, ran a pre-order campaign on their own: they raised enough to have a first run professionally printed. Then they signed on with another company and … the game sort of vanished into publishing limbo. I’m extremely pleased to announce that Wok Star is back! (Read More)
