I thought I would do a quick update and highlight some interesting Kickstarter games.
First up, Dungeon Roll from Tasty Minstrel Games. Dungeon Roll is a quick dice based dungeon crawler. Here’s some flavor text from the KS – “A vicious dragon is out there… Assemble your party at the tavern… Slay the dragon! Grab the treasure! OH GLORIOUS GLORY!!! Dungeon Roll is a light and quick press-your-luck dice game with many important and interesting decisions.” It has custom dice, cool art, and a TON of other stuff. It is only $15 delivered! Here’s the link.
Achtung! Cthulhu is a really cool rpg setting that deserves some attention. Here’s the flavor text – Discover the secret history of World War Two – stories of the amazing heroism in which stalwart men and women struggled to overthrow a nightmare alliance of science and the occult, of frightening inhuman conspiracies from the depths of time, and the unbelievable war machines which were the product of Nazi scientific genius – and how close we all came to a slithering end! The Secret War has begun! It is compatible with Call of Cthulhu RPG and Savage Worlds RPG. You can support it here.
Here’s an older game that is making a fresh new start – Deadwood Studios from Cheapass Games. Deadwood is one of Cheapass’s ‘bigger’ games. From the KS – “The game happens at Deadwood Studios, makers of terrible Western movies. Players wander across the backlot each day, looking for acting jobs. After you take a role, you can roll a die and try to “act,” or you can “rehearse” to improve your odds.'”It had a base game with multiple expansions for different genres of movies. I really like the Cheapass Games that I have played and this one, with the sweet update, looks just as good. Check it out here.
Nothing Personal is a game from TomVasel and Stephen Avery that had a successful KS campaign a while back. Now there is a deck of standard playing cards with the art from Nothing Personal available on KS. You can check it out here.
Next, Zombie House Blitz from Stupid Awesome Games. A speed card game to play with friends and family. Save people from the zombies, even if grandma might have to be left behind. This sounds like a pretty cool take on Ligretto from designer Jeremiah Lee. You may remember him from Zombie In My Pocket, one of the most popular print ‘n’ play games on BGG. Jeremiah is back with ZHB. AND he’ll be a guest on Go Forth And Game very soon. Support Zombie House Blitz right here.
