An expansion for the highly regarded Gùgōng is now being funded on Kickstarter. The expansion, Gùgōng: Pànjūn, is designed by the same designer as the original game, Andreas Steding with the artwork for both being provided by Andreas Resch. The game is being published by Game Brewer.
The Kickstarter features deluxe versions of both the base game and the new expansion. Both are set in 16th century China as corruption reigns supreme. The players represent influential families trying to gain more influence by wending their way through the intricate bureaucratic system. The expansion adds 4 different modules to the base game that give the game more variety and new locations for the players to visit.

Game Brewer and TMG have started a Kickstarter Campaign to create a european edition of their worker placement game Chimera Station, which completed a successful Kickstarter in October. In Chimera Station, 2-4 players must build a space station in 5 rounds using their alien workers. During a round, players place workers for actions as normal, but can then splice pieces onto their workers, making them more efficient. At the end of the round, workers must be fed. Workers with brains spliced in add points when placed, tentacles gain workers extra resources, claws let you push other workers out of spaces, and leaves allow workers to feed themselves. Game Brewer is using a BGG poll to decide which languages will be included in the new edition.
