September 22nd - via:
Despite the challenges facing tabletop game publishers like increased shipping, delayed manufacturing, there are still a lot of great games in the pipeline. They just might take a little longer or cost a little more these days! Here are several Kickstarter projects that I’ve been watching lately—most of them this time are cooperative games, which seems appropriate for a time in which it’s more important than ever that we learn to work together. (Read More)

In the upcoming board game, players team up as members of a task force who must work together to contain and control an oil spill before it causes a mass ecological disaster. An oil drilling platform called Deepwell 4 has sprung a leak and is causing an oil slick to spread across the surface of the ocean it’s sitting in, contaminating the waters and harming the marine life that lives there. (Read More)
