This is going to be the start of a weekly article I will write with cheap and free games and related items. I am a fairly frugal person, and as such I am constantly looking for a deal especially when it comes to my hobbies. With the release of the post about the deal at Telltale games i just did here, I realized others like me may benefit from a weekly article listing a couple things I have found. If you want to view all these articles together as they progress just check category Cheap Gaming.
First thing I want to mention is Kickstarter,
this is a great site with a lot of projects on it. The projects range
through most of what one could think of, with a large selection of
games. The idea is, you donate money to help someone “kick start” a
project . The awesome thing about this is that most games on there (I
personally have backed a few recently) will give you a digital copy of
the game for around $15. There is also a lot of war-gaming and board
game stuff there so it allows you to get advanced copies of things, for a
good price as well as help the project out. I highly suggest heading
on over there with the above link and seeing what peaks your interest.
next thing is papercraft gaming. I am a fan of tabletop games but as
we all know it is an expensive hobby to get into. Well, not if your into
papercraft. There are several websites out there which either sell or
give away templates that you can print out to use with your tabletop
games. These templates range from generic models to duplicates of your
favorite game models and even includes terrain. This means you can get a
nice tabletop game on the go for free or just really cheap. I will put
a few links below for different sites I have used and even purchased
from and I would like to note that one is Fat Dragon Games who if you find this earlier post actually have created their own Mech style tabletop and the full game sells for just $10.
