Primetime Adventures has long been on my list of tabletop rpgs to play. I've owned a copy for years, but just never had a chance to play it. I have a lot of friends that absolutely love it.

Anyhow, a Kickstarter for a new edition launched yesterday: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/18 ... adventures

If you've ever wanted to create and play out your very own TV show then you should really check it out.

I was at Origins Game Fair this past week and one of the many awesome games I played was Urban Shadows, which is currently on Kickstarter: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/12 ... hadows-rpg

It's a dark, modern, urban fantasy RPG based on the Apocalypse World engine, heavily inspired by things like the Dresden Files, Angels, & Supernatural.

So I backed WreckAge for way too much money, and I'm starting to wonder wtf is going on. So far, I got 9 metal figures, and I think at least two were broken. That's it. They sent me a message saying the hardbound rulebook was delayed, and I could exchange the cash value for items from their website. And their website is not very useful.

Ninja Pizza Girl, a game about pulling off sweet moves to deliver pizza, but where your greatest enemy is teenage girls who laugh at you when you fail. Gameplay reminds me a little of the old school Sonic games, and the theme is interesting in the way it's trying to address something quite real (and it looks like a great example of using gameplay mechanics to present the story/theme).

Like Scrabble-type wordplay, but hate the board and all the waiting around between turns? Want to watch a really great pseudo-Victorian gameplay video? Try out Length × Wit, a word game involving letter tiles and letter dice.

Each turn, you start with 9 letter tiles and one random letter die. Roll the die, then make a word with it and your tiles. If you succeed, you can choose to "press your luck" - "bank" the tiles you used, pull out a second die, and roll them both to try and form another word with your leftover tiles, with a score multiplier. You can keep this going to 3+ dice if you are willing to risk it.

Then after your turn is over, the last dice you rolled get passed to the other players, to give them a chance to form a word from their own leftover tiles (whatever they didn't use in their last turn) for a few bonus points (they don't get the multiplier, so this isn't swingy, but it can be a significant factor over a game).

I really like this, because I really like Scrabble-style play, but I'm not a huge fan of the geometry of Scrabble and how skilled play revolves around placing tiles very defensively so others can't play off of them easily. This is more independent, without being totally free-form. It also makes sure everyone contributes every "turn", avoiding the "okay, my turn's over, I'm gonna go get snacks for 10 minutes" thing that Scrabble tends to produce.

It also has no secrecy, which I always enjoy. Makes it way easier to play in weird seating situations, like on a bench rather than around a table.

Also, it's all laser-cut solid wood, and looks beautiful. It's fully funded, and already hit its "everyone can buy an engraving" stretch goal (laser cut makes that super cheap, which is cool). I bought two copies, one for me and one for my in-laws. ^_^

Howard Taylor of Schlock Mercenary is kickstarting his Planet Mercenary rpg starting April 15. I'm a fan of the webcomic, though I don't really have the opportunity to play rpgs, but I know a lot of you guys do.

According to some recent tweets, it'll include things like armor that actively wants to hurt the user, and a free hoverboard for each group (so the GM and players can see natural selection in action).

Planning on backing the Planet Mercenary RPG, been a long-time reader of Taylor's webcomic, should be interesting to see the artwork that's been commissioned for the "realisic" look of the places Tagon's Toughs have been.
We're in the traffic-chopper over the XKCD boards where there's been a thread-derailment. A Liquified Godwin spill has evacuated threads in a fourty-post radius of the accident, Lolcats and TVTropes have broken free of their containers. It is believed that the Point has perished.

Do you like boardgames? Hate the crappy cardboard or colored-wooden-cube nature of much of the tokens? Wish you could have something more attractive and immersive? You want this Kickstarter of 3 different sets of high-quality resource tokens, suitable for tons of games. I'm backing for the Food and Resource sets; the Energy set is amazing if you like playing Power Grid, but not that useful otherwise. I backed their previous KickStarter for Basic resources (now sold on their website) and I can absolutely vouch for the quality. This shit is primo - beautiful, high-quality, and the metal ones (particularly the "gold bars") have a very satisfying heft to them. We love using them with Kingsburg, which uses wood/stone/gold.

In the same vein, do you hate the crappy cardboard money disks that come with games? I've got several high-quality metal coin sets for you:

My favorite in general are the ones from Minion Games. They ran a KS for these a while back, and I picked up a bunch of the Dragon Coins and LOVE THEM. I use them for everything that requires any currency now, as the denominations run from 1-100. They're beautiful, highly distinct, and feel and sound great in your hand. The Sci-Fi set is wonderful too, and comes in denominations from 1 to 100k. They make playing the X-Com boardgame much better. ^_^ Most games only need 1-10 or so, and be sure to order plenty of 1s and 3s or 5s; I found thirty 1-coins to not be quite enough for some games, and ordered more to bring myself up to fifty.

If you like Lords of Waterdeep, or just generally want a cool-looking pair of coins, this set of Waterdeep coins is wonderful. Again, they ran a KS for them a little while ago, and I just got them and can totally vouch for them. Beautiful, great size, great quality.

If neither of those grab you, here's an ongoing KickStarter for a bunch more different coin sets. This has 10 different sets of coins, most coming in an an un-numbered trio of copper/silver/gold denominations, so you can set their value to whatever is appropriate for your game. They've got a Waterdeep set (which I don't like quite as much as the previous one, but tastes may vary), and a bunch of others. I particularly like the Dwarven coins, which have a great truncated-triangle shape, the Victory Point coins (which actually come in 6 numbered denominations from 1-100), and I think the Rangers and Serpent sets are beautiful (the Cthulhu ones too, but I don't think I have any games appropriate for them). I'm really interested in their Sci-Fi set too, but they've only got line-drawings of them up right now, no production samples, so I'll be keeping an eye on those. They also offer all the coins from their last KS (they're all round, and I find their designs a bit more boring, so I didn't back them at the time), and RUPEES. Beautiful tempered-glass rupees about an inch long which look *great*, and should be very durable (they have a funny "durability test" video on the KS).


I'm a total sucker for this kind of thing, and it's getting worse as my boardgame collection grows, so I thought I'd infect someone else with the brain-worms too. ^_^ I think some of the coins, particularly in the last KS, would also be great for D&D or the like, particularly if you rescale the prices, as I often do, so that each coin level is 100 of the previous, rather than 10 (that makes a gold piece actually feel *valuable*). You'd need to buy a goodly number of them, but if you've got the cash lying around, it's worth it!

Mottainai, another card game from the same people who made Red7 and Glory to Rome. Those two games are great so I hope this one will be good too (I supported it).

Somewhere out there is a table floating around that shows how many coins each of a number of different games require that was somehow associated with Minion Games. I think they(ie, James) made it.

I likewise use them, and they're pretty good. They were originally meant to match up with the Battle Merchants game(which is also pretty good, and kickstarted), but they have a lot of crossover appeal for whatever.

I'm probably gonna hoard thirty sets or so of each for future larp use.

Yeah, I just use the dragon coins for anything fantasy-ish, and the scifi coins for anything scifi-ish. I've ordered enough of each that I can accommodate any game I've tried so far.

Monstrous is a card-based dexterity game that I played a demo copy of at a convention in January, and I've been waiting for the Kickstarter ever since. It's got some really gorgeous art, and I don't think I've really seen much in the space of "throw cards to get points, with special powers".

It is a 2D adventure/stealth game, set in cyberpunk Seattle. The cool thing about it is that they are planning on an episodic release -- There will be a 30-60 minute chapter released every week for ~5 months.
It looks really damn cool, so I hope you all go check it out!

Just an update - the game is funded, as is the "Dark Ages Legendary Monsters" stretch goal (where Kickstarter backers get the expansion set in a pottery-inspired art style), it's still a fair way to go to the next stretch goal, where the expansion will be included in the full art style, or the next few stretch goals which are all about expanding the art for the Kraken to get to a 9-card picture for its tentacles, which I would very much like to see.

I'm not a huge fan of the graphics. I really like stealth games, and Mark of the Ninja was awesome as a 2D stealth game. It's... let's say "surprising" they want to make a story about "the power of women" and out of eight named people who work on the game, only one is a woman...

Yeah, the graphics aren't exactly my thing, either. I think/hope that they are there for flavor, not because of shitty development.

It's... let's say "surprising" they want to make a story about "the power of women" and out of eight named people who work on the game, only one is a woman...

Huh, didn't notice that. It is a valid concern, but I know the leader of the project, and he is from a rather progressive background. I know it isn't the same as having another woman, but I think he is actually included that blurb for the right reasons, not just for feminist cred.

Not really, if you spend any time at all in development circles. There's a wee bit of a skew in such fields. It's easily identifiable in college onward. Take a look around you in any CS class.

You've got to deal with that reality when finding folks, even if you have perfectly fine goals for a game.

Hey, no one says a group of men can't make a great feminist game. But there are plenty of women who can do those jobs too. And they're not all just programmers, you need composers, writers, scenario builders, testers, and a million other things. So I found it strange. It doesn't mean the game won't be awesome (or having more women would suddenly make it awesome, either).

A cursory glance at the page tells me that they do indeed have women listed as filling other roles, such as voice acting, as you would expect. They don't list every minor job. You're apparently looking at the core team of six, of which one is female. That's statistically pretty unsurprising.

In terms of "plenty of women who can do those jobs too", that, statistically speaking, is not really true in the video game creating industry. One would expect a development team to roughly match industry demographics, keeping in mind that in a sample set of only six, you're not going to get perfect representation.

That aside, it's a doomed project given that it's raised only about 7% of it's funding with 18 days to go. That's fairly unfixable, and likely due to a combination of being a little generic in terms of presentation(oooh, a protagonist with no memory. Never seen that before.) and lack of sufficient audience. The really big hits tend to have a massive baked in audience before the project ever launches. Also, amount of space dedicated to the team talking about themselves is a really good indicator for failed projects. People are buying the game, not you. So, your demographic observation is relevant, just in a different way.

Molecular - Strategic Chemistry Tile Game

Postby TempNinjaLee » Sun Jul 26, 2015 11:05 pm UTC

The title was enough for me to think of xkcd.

I look at Molecular and memories of the best times I had in chemistry courses come to mind. The way that atoms connected to each other so simply, elegantly, and sometimes infuriatingly. This game is about placing atoms together to form some behemoth of a custom molecule, scoring points, trying to prevent the other players from forming connections that benefit them more than you.

I was a little surprised not to have found any posts about this game already. And also a little embarrassed at trying to figure out how to usefully post something myself. I am a backer, but not in any other way affiliated with this project.

This may be the greatest thing ever Its called Mech Deck, and it is a game where you draft parts for you mech, build your mech with said parts (really, with little plastic bits) and then play a skirmish game with the sweet mech you just built.

They have details about rules and the game is made, they are looking to cover manufacturing and printing costs, which is always what I look for in a boardgame.

Though honestly if you weren't sold already I don't see how you can have a love of life.

Maybe more like...mage..something...there's a f2p game on steam that you use cards as your actions, and it's an rpg.

The team behind the "There she is" animation series, SamBakZa, are raising money to produce a new episode to the series, along with a DVD with all episodes plus bonus material, and many other perks.

There's a week left, and they're 12 % away from the goal. If this series about the love story of the cat Nabi and the rabbit Doki caused your heart to swell or break with the ups and downs, then please consider donating to show your appreciation of an over 10 year old amazing animation series, or to help fund the new episode.

And if you haven't heard of "There she is", then do yourself a favour and look it up on Newgrounds (the original from long ago) or YouTube (the remastered 2015 version). But have some tissues at hand for all the feels you will experience.

The remake of System Shock 1 looks really great.

This is somewhat exotic, kickstarted gaming dices. Link leads to the Wizard set, there is warrior one too etc. - https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/po ... n=bb611a6e

PS People seem to like this a lot, they already have twelve times more (!) than they asked for :)

I've seen similar sets before - they're fun-looking, but practically useless to actually roll with. Never use "cylindrical" dice, they take way too long to stop rolling and are hard to read when they do stop. Only back this if the novelty/display value is high enough for you; you won't want to actually use them in play.

The campaign for Wasteland 3 has started. https://www.fig.co/campaigns/wasteland-3

It's on fig not kickstarter so I wasn't entirely sure if it should go in this thread. (Maybe this should be renamed to a generic crowdfunded games thread?)

Hi all, some of you might know me from the forum games section of this site. I've made my own card game called Apocalypse Frenzy, a funny game about an alien apocalypse, and it's live on Kickstarter right now until December 1st! You can check it out here:

Hey folks! I wanted to share a thoughtful, quirky project that I think many xkcd aficionados will enjoy.

Dialect, a tabletop game about language and how it dies, recently launched on Kickstarter to a very warm reception. It's been pretty awesome to see how many humans are excited to play an RPG about emergent language.

(note: I am the co-designer and have poured a lot of heart into this game!)

I've seen that before, and I have been tempted to back it but just can't justify the expense right now. It does appeal to me and my wife (who studied linguistics at university).
