A new edition of the previously out-of-print Finca (mentioned a couple of times upthread) is on Kickstarter at the moment. Finca is one of my favourite Euro games and has been hard to get for quite a few years now (I tracked down a copy in Italy once). It's already funded but unfortunately it seems like quite a lacklustre KS campaign and is a straight reprint with no new elements or component upgrades (except for one stretch goal that looks unlikely to be reached) or any of the usual fun KS stuff. It seems like a missed opportunity to be honest, but, anyway, it's a fun game and it's finally available again so it's worth taking a look at.

Agreed on the lacklustre campaign - at the same time its good to see a new company try to grow itself. The shipping fees are causing a bit of a tizzy for some but that is less of a concern if folks are able to do group buys.

Great little game with a super fun rondel mechanism, deserves to get back in print!

Thankfully I also own a copy already.

Wanna play Carc? Can we add just one more expansion?
