Kickstarter of the month: Viva Java

Vying for your hard earned pennies this month is Viva Java, a board game about growing coffee.
In the maker's own words:
In VivaJava, players send their researchers to hot spots around the globe to gather the perfect bean. This may bring them into contact with other players who are also on the hunt, creating a crucial choice: Go it alone and continue to research, or join forces with that opponent, hoping to combine beans from both player's bags and share the score with a superblend. Going it alone with research can often prove useful as players spend time in the lab developing abilities that grant them an advantage. However, in VivaJava the bold taste of victory will go only to those players who are able to balance solitary research with cooperation amongst their fellow gamers.
Why should I back it?
Because it is being produced by Dice Hate Me Games, the makers of Carnival, a previously successful Kickstarter who have experience making and shipping projects. Also the game has a high level of sheen, the product looks good and the game mechanics of joining forces or going alone looks interesting.

Why should I hold onto my money?
It all depends if you can get excited by a game about growing and selling coffee. Also, if you’re outside the US, $80 (around £50) can be quite a high pledge to get a copy of the game. And the game won’t be shipped in a coffee tin.

Viva Java has already met its project goal of $15,000.
