Yeah! We've made the 16k mark thanks to all of your support and a review in Wired.com today. I see us hitting the 20k stretch goal if everyone continues to promote the game - and esp. if we convert more of you $1 people. In that vein here is a list of some of the reviews that have come out about Tahiti so far....
"I've played this with my Wife and my Dad and Kids and they all really enjoyed it too."
Wired.com | GeekDad
Euro-Style Board Game for the Whole Family - Chuck Lawton
"I can’t wait to play Tahiti more with my kids. It’s a fantastic entry into the world of Euro-style board games with a rule set that makes some room for tinkering for their level. We loved it and I think you will too."
"I’ve also tried out the print-and-play version, and liked it enough to back for a full copy as well. It’s a terrific game and the mechanism of drawing cubes out of a bag lends itself to a really fascinating ebb and flow of resources."
- Jonathan Liu | Wired.com Editor
Tahiti – Kickstarter Board Game - Sea Monster Entertainment | Retail Store
"Honestly, I wasn’t going to pledge for any more games for a while but after playing this I HAD NO CHOICE! Yes, it’s that good."
Umbrella Drinks Not Included - Benny Sperling
"I think Tahiti hits the mark for being a solid gateway game and presents some interesting decisions at that level."
Tahiti in Columbus - A review of the PnP Version - Ken Grazier
"It’s a lot of fun and one that I think will become a favorite of friends."
Tahiti - a Kickstarter Review - Jeff Kayati
"Tahiti delivers on what it aims to be. An enjoyable gateway game to the pick-up and deliver genre."
And for your entertainment here is a LEGO version of Tahiti :)
