Thank you so much for posting this!

I've been looking to get into Paranoia for a very long time, but had been unable to find anything with a reasonable price tag on it.

I love Sam and Fuzzy, but...something that's been bothering me is that there seems to be zero explanation of the actual game mechanics. Am I just missing it on the Kickstarter page? Pretty sure I've read through the entire page a few times to see if I've missed something, and there's nothing there. Edited by Bartimaeus

Not sure if this fits here as it's a board game, but anyway, here goes.  Conan board game by Monolith Board Games.

 

 

70 hours left as of this writing.  This one is already INSANELY successful having asked for $80,000 and it's gotten over 2 million.  A ridiculous amount of stretch goals has been unlocked and each means more miniatures and character sheets free for everyone.  I don't know how they're going to fit all of this into one box.  I've been following this for a while and pledged to it yesterday for the King Box.  I'm a huge fan of the Conan setting and how fraught with debauchery, lust, and selfishness it is.  I also love asymmetrical games (this one is 1 vs 1 to 4).  Keep in mind that you'll likely be looking at an additional $35 or $45 (if you live in the States or Europe) or more for shipping in addition to the cost.  Still, the amount of stuff that you get for the price is freakin' astounding.  I have thoughts of painting all the miniatures, but that's going to take months of work.  :grin:

Well it's not exactly for a game, but this Kickstarter might be of interest to sci-fi fans:

 

Save the Sci-Fi: The Next Generation

 

Their goal is to track down out of circulation sci-fi books, clear the copyright, then scan them and make them available as an e-book. They try to do one book per month, and have restored 36 books thus far.

If anybody here likes OSR games and swords & sorcery in particular, then this might be of interest:

Crypts & Things Remastered

 

It sounds like the right approach; using KS, to fund new art, and revising and expanding the existing content into a bigger, better version of the old. Judging from the beta of the new remastered version (available to anyone who backs the Kickstarter) Newt Newton is on the right track (He's also the author of the excellent OpenQuest rules).

Lancer RPG from the creator of Kill Six Billion Demons has a KS running though it also has a free version anyone can download.


"Bones heal, chicks dig scars, pain is temporary, glory is forever."
