Sad Kickstarter Story - Sharknado: The Board Game!
The Sad Kickstarter story is Sharknado - the Board Game. Even though the game has raised over 26K, that was only halfway the funding target. Even though I like the idea of this IP being translated to a board game, the value for money when it comes to production might be a bit high at 60 USD MSRP and 54 as the special kickstarter price. I love the Sharknado miniature though and I would really like to have seen this game come into fruition, but for now no Sharknados soaring over the table… and that’s Sad.
RPG Spotlight: I Love the Corps [No BGG Link at Time of Release]
The RPG spotlight this time is about ‘I Love the Corps’ by Christopher Dean. An Action, Horror and Military Sci-fi RPG which feels like you’re playing a movie. Take on the role of a marine in space trying to overcome next to insurmountable odds. Wow, I actually picked that term without looking at the text, but there are indeed insurmountable odds. The I Love the Corps game system integrates tension-building narrative scenes and streamlined action scenes, blending psychological horror with high-octane battles. Ok, that I did take of the page. I Love the Corps is 20 GBP for a print on demand ticket, which comes with a free PDF copy, 40 if you want the Classified Materials Book as well or if you want all three books (which also includes the Mission Dossier) you will have to pay 55.

Legendary Adventures - Volume 2 [No BGG Link at Time of Release]
Finally, Deep Dark Design Ltd is bringing the second volume of Legendary Adventures. It’s still a little short on funding but there’s 70 hours left as I write this episode, so I hope they’ll be fine. The legendary adventures are an accessible, inexpensive and versatile resource for game masters on a budget. There’s a lot of possibilities when pledges are concerned so check it out for yourself.
