Kickstarter/Indiegogo of the Week: Chai

So, I first encountered Chai at a fun gaming industry that was being held by a local publisher, I didn’t get to play it. We were at a charity gaming event together, still didn’t get to play it. I spent three days looking down the aisle at their beautiful art on a banner, still didn’t play. Why didn’t I play Chai? My own schedule aside, there was basically always someone else playing it. Day after day, event after event, I saw people playing it and heard people talking about it, until I got my grubby little reviewer hands on a prototype copy. My friends and I made some tea (because of course we did) and sat down to play. At the end I wasn’t left thinking “that was worth the wait”, I was left thinking “argh, why didn’t I try harder to play this sooner!”
