February 20, 2018 - 7:16am
The award winning Finca, by designers Wolfgang Sentker and Ralf zur Linde, is attempting a return to tables via Kickstarter 10 years after it's original release. The game was originally published by Hans im Glück  in 2009 and has been out of print since 2010.
The Kickstarter campaign has a goal of 15,000 Euro by Wednesday, March 14th 2018 at 7:11 AM MDT. With over 14,000 euro raised by 259 backers with 22 days to go, Kicktraq currently has the campaign trending towards over 55,000 Euro.
A basic pledge for Finca will run 33 Euro for one copy with additional pledge levels available for multiple copies of the game.
If the campaign reaches 45,00 Euro, it would unlock all stretch goals. Stretch goals include:
  • El Razul Expansion
  • A Larger Board
  • Wooden Donkeys
About Finca
A set collection game, the object of the game is to distribute your fruits as effectively as possible in order to deliver faster than your opponents.
Players will take on the roles of Mallorcan island farmers who attempt to harvest as many of the island‘s fruits: figs, almonds, olives, oranges, grapes, and lemons, as possible. Once collected, players will then deliver their fruits to one of the the island communities. Each of the communities will have constantly changing requirements during the game, rewarding players who can best speculate what will be needed. For each delivery the player will receive victory points. The player with the most victory points at the end of the game is the winner. What's in the Box The base pledge for the game will include:
