End of April Kickstarter roundup

First, let's look at a couple of comics:

Swords of the Swashbucklers- Dynamite Entertainment is looking to print a collection featuring the original graphic novel and the 12 issue series. This is a pulpy and beautiful SFF series, so if that's your thing...

Family Man- This is another reprint, this one a crime comic from the unfortunately short lived Paradox Press. It's not seen collection before, as it was a three mini-volume story, and didn't see the explosion Road to Perdition or A History of Violence did.

OK, now, onto some games:

Button Men is coming back, the new version being launched with cards. This is an old two player dice combat game, and is ridiculous quick fun.

Aces & Eights: Reloaded is a new edition of Kenzerco's  Western RPG. There's also rules for a minis skirmish game.

Commands and Colors: Tricorne from Compass Games is Richard Borg's C&C engine applied to the American Revolution. Compass Games strictly is a wargame publisher, and this is a good light one. I state this based on my experience with other C&C games. 

Fuedalia appears to be an interesting upgrade on the Deck Building mechanic, integrating some resource management as well.

TerrainCrate- If you've got an RPG, or need a diorama for a minis tournament, this has some great looking pieces for you at good pricing, provided you want at least one box.

Farsight- Well, I just found this and it is PRETTY. We've got mechs, artillery and 2-4 players.  Yeah, it's not Battletech or Robotech, but it is setup as a boardgame.

I've looked through the fiction, anthology, and periodical categories, and nothing has struck me as noteworthy/trustworthy.

When you play Social Justice, the world loses.
