Kickstarting the Habit - Morrocan market stalls at the World's Fair

Even with Essen happening soon, there are still plenty to choose from hitting Kickstarter at the moment


An unique theme for this one, players adopt a teams of dogs and get to train them so they can compete in an agility competition against your opponents dogs.

Much like designer Brett Povis' previous game Morels, this is a two player game with the strategic intention of playing with planning and timing to beat your opponent to the finish line. Through hand management and some resource management you have to work your dogs through the courses on the way to victory.


Once again the team of Riddle, Pinchback and Eagle Gryphon games are here to give us their unique take on a Euro-style game. 

Using area control, players will be sending members of their family of artisans out to claim stalls at the market. There is plenty of give and take as players work their way into the market.

Of course the art design and components are top notch and well worth checking out if you have the time.


Harking back to the days of choose your own adventure books like the Fighting Fantasy series. This game is for 1 to 4 players working together to explore and discover the world of the 7th continent. 

The board builds up using numbered event and terrain cards to create a story as you move around. Promising over 1000+ minutes in one campaign and a story save feature much like video games, so you can drop out of the game anytime.


It's almost the turn of the 19th century and in Chicago a historic event took place. The World's Fair featured many achievements in science, technology, culture and entertainment. As organizers of the fair, players have to use their influence to get the exhibits that will be on display when the fair opens.

I think it is fantastic when game designers can take a part of history and involve the player in it's creation. This looks like it implements the theme into the game seamlessly. Looking forward for a chance to play it.
