Added a new color scheme to denote projects or bundles: Purple. Orange to denote different sections: Backerkit, Kickstarter, Humble Bundle, etc. was added recently.

Week 4 of Gaming Sunday Week – will do my best to try and update daily or as needed. The quote below is from my first Gaming Sunday Week post: Gaming Sunday Week of September 30, 2018.

While I will post gaming stuff (RPGs, Wargames, Board Games, Card Games, Computer/Console Games) at other times during the week, I decided to start doing a Gaming Sunday Weekly Post. Among other things, it will include Bundle of Holding (https://bundleofholding.com – generally 3 – 5 bundles active at a time) and Humble Bundle (https://www.humblebundle.com/ – generally around 5 – 6 bundles active, not including the tons of other sale items that aren’t bundles) items in this post; some of which won’t be gaming related. I will update the post during the week as bundles go off sale and new bundles come on sale. I won’t be including all of the sale items on Humble Bundle as it can easily exceed a reasonable amount. The good news is you can save an item that has been on sale to a Wish List and you will be notified if and when it comes on sale again. For example, this game was recently on sale: https://www.humblebundle.com/store/search?sort=bestselling&search=mordor – it requires a birthdate if you click on the only game in the list; the sale is over, but you can add it to your Wish List. I am a fan of Sid Meier’s Civilization computer games: https://www.humblebundle.com/store/search?sort=bestselling&search=civilization (note, not all of the games are for Sid Meier’s Civ series (about half of the games in the link are for Sid’s Civ series (ranging from Civilization III to Civilization VI – some are on sale and some aren’t).

I will also include any crowdsources that are gaming related, from Kickstarter, Patreon, IndieGoGo, GoFundMe, etc. For example, The Fantasy Trip by Steve Jackson on https://thefantasytrip.backerkit.com/hosted_preorders which was previously a Kickstarter project: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/sjgames/the-fantasy-trip-old-school-roleplaying.

BackerKit: https://www.backerkit.com/ (for creators and backers of projects)

The Fantasy Trip BackerKit: https://thefantasytrip.backerkit.com/hosted_preorders/ – ends around November 1, 2018. This is a follow-up to The Fantasy Trip Kickstarter project: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/sjgames/the-fantasy-trip-old-school-roleplaying.

On Sale (you can filter it a number of different ways, including Top Discounts, Bestselling, Alphabetically, Release Date, New Releases, Genres, Platform, DRM): https://www.humblebundle.com/store/search?sort=discount&filter=onsale

Sid Meier’s Civilization (ranging from Civilization III to VI and a few others; not on sale at the moment on Humble Bundle, also available at Fanatical.com https://www.fanatical.com/en/search?search=meier%20civilization), but I like the Civ series of games): https://www.humblebundle.com/store/search?sort=bestselling&search=sid%20meier%20civilization&genre=Strategy. It’s temporarily on sale through October 28, 2018 at the Civilization Sale website: https://civilization.com/sale/ (see above under the Civilization section for more details).

Indiegogo Projects: Gaming related: https://www.indiegogo.com/

Convergence – a Star Trek Fan Film Indiegogo Campaign: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/convergence-a-star-trek-fan-film#/. Ends around November 2, 2018 (6 days left as of October 27, 2018).
According to https://fanfilmfactor.com/2018/10/27/convergence-releases-one-of-the-best-crowd-funding-videos-ive-ever-seen/, this is the secondprise (their word, not mine) “ask” video they have ever seen:
This 3-minute vignette is now my second favorite crowd-funding “ask” video ever.  Why is it my second favorite?  Well, nothing will likely ever surpass this video (and the four that came after it) from Star Trek Continues‘ “Kirkstarter 2.0.”  But the reason this Convergence video gets the secondprise (get it?), is because it has so much fun while asking folks to donate.
They recommend bookmarking it if you plan on any sort of crowdfunding/sourcing campaign.

Fairytale the Roleplaying Game Indiegogo Project: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/fairytale-the-roleplaying-game/x/19581145#/. I gave more information in this blog post: Fairytale the Roleplaying Game on Indiegogo. Appears to end in a month (so roughly November 11, 2018, will update if the date is earlier or later. The project owner shows Oulu, Finland for location.

Here’s the blurb from the e-mail I received:

I’m making a new game, Fairytale the Roleplaying Game, which is on Indiegogo right now. It’s a new kind of RPG, because it focuses on the morals of the story very heavily. Failing is not nearly as dangerous or troublesome as going against a moral set by the Narrator. As you play it, there is an additional level of play, where you don’t only think about the consequences of your actions, but also the ramifications in which you make those actions. The answer to the same question might be different in two different games, where the narrator and morals are different.

The game also has a much lighter mood than most games. Dying is almost a nonexistent threat, but your own corruption and accidentally becoming the very thing you’re trying to oppose is the largest threat and the source of most of the trouble in the game.

It should eventually show up on DTRPG and you can also find it on the company’s website once it gets published: https://www.artificergames.com/. The goal is €4,000 and the designer chose flexible goals so it will receive whatever funding (minus Indiegogo‘s fees) it receives.

I think this is one of the more innovative RPGs in a long time and it’s why I chose to add a blog post about it. I plan on doing a blog post on the various crowdfunding options out there and I haven’t done anything with Indiegogo before seeing this e-mail.

Kickstarter Projects – Gaming Related for the most part, but will include non-gaming related items at times (generally, shipping costs are NOT included if you back a project – so factor those into your budget): https://www.kickstarter.com/

Thousand Year Old Vampire Kickstarter RPG Campaign: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/timh/thousand-year-old-vampire-a-roleplaying-game. Ends November 16, 2018 1:15 AM CST. Fully funded: $7,620 pledged of $500 goal. Several F-bombs in the Kickstarter description although that’s because one of the items available if you back at $35 or higher is a LARP book with it in the title.

The game mechanics are simple and intuitive. Play progresses semi-randomly through a book of Prompts which let you explore your vampire’s wants and needs, resolve problems, and chart the decline into senescence. Play can happen entirely within the character sheet or can become a journaling activity–both work equally well.

Vampires, for the purposes of this game, can mean nearly anything that is functionally immortal, doesn’t like daylight, and preys on humans for sustenance. I like Montague Summers-type vampires myself, but this system is designed to be flexible.

All you need is the book or PDF, a d10, and a d6. This is a solo game for you to play in lonely places wrapped in darkness, but can be played multiplayer if you like. Play can take from one to three hours, depending on how you go about things.

Niobe Returns in Erathune Kickstarter Campaign: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1182319554/niobe-returns-in-erathune-she-is-death-and-essessa/description

$50,334 pledged of $21,500 goal

10 days to go (October 25 + 9 days so around November 3, 2018)

A shadow had fallen across the vast and volatile world of Asunda, as nations crumbled and oceans swelled in blood. Some say the devil walked again and no man could stand against him. But not all men are heroes and not all heroes are men.

“We all have Niobe inside ourselves, and it’s time to let her roar.”
– VIOLA DAVIS (from her foreword in the NIOBE: She is Life hardcover)

Americana RPG Kickstarterhttps://www.kickstarter.com/projects/sandypuggames/americana-1 

Americana RPG is a new RPG being developed by Sandy Pug Games: http://www.sandypuggames.com/. They started a Kickstarter campaign at https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/sandypuggames/americana-1. I added it to Gaming Sunday Week of October 21, 2018. Fully funded ($8,769 pledged of $6,800 goal) as of October 25, 2018; ends Thursday, November 1, 2018 9:54 AM CDT. There are two stretch goals remaining: $9,000 and $12,500. Here are some more links for Sandy Pug Games link for all of their DriveThru RPG (DTRPG) products: https://www.drivethrurpg.com/browse/pub/7386/Sandy-Pug-Games. You can also follow them on Twitter at: https://twitter.com/SandyPugGames and on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/SandyPugGames/.

It’s an unusual concept for an RPG (“A game of teenage rebellion and murder in a fantastical 50s that never was” – from the Kickstarter campaign), but you can get a free quick preview from DriveThru RPG (DTRPG): https://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/256782/Americana–Preview-Quickplay-Pack?manufacturers_id=7386. You can also download the file at https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1lpbN1YtyQ9J2yhGLtEfi43JjI9PqD9Hd.

From the DTRPG link:

Americana is an RPG set in a fantasy, inclusive 1950s small town, somewhere in the United States. Your best friend is dead, and you think it’s murder. Gather their other friends, follow the clues and investigate your town full of magic, wonder, gangs and risks to track down the killer and bring them to justice. Take control of one of 6 archetypes (Jock, Nerd, Outsider, New Kid, Artist, Royal) each with their own unique strengths and abilities, build Your Dead Friend, the victim of this murder, whose abilities and inspiration will aid you in discovering the truth behind their grisly fate, and build an incredible, magical town full of fantasy and wonder to explore.

The game takes place in a 50s vastly different than the one we’re used to. For a start, the world is full of magic. Orcs and Dwarves are going steady at the drive-in, Elves and Dragons are taking a trip to Look-out Point and your principal is a kindly skeleton that fought against Charlemagne. The world is also massively more progressive than the 50s ever was, systemic oppression of marginalized people is an alien concept in the world of Americana.

This is a free quickplay set that shows off some of the systems and world of Americana and hopefully get you excited for the full product. It includes just about everything you need to get started with your own murder mystery – some small lore details, character sheets and a stripped back version of the full rules.

If this catches your interest, Americana is already 100% funded on Kickstarter, so head on over and check out some of our reward tiers and stretch goals – which include a super sentai, power rangers inspired twist on the core setting and rules!

Bunnies and Barrows 3rd Edition KickstarterCampaign has ended; should be a Backerkit added in the near future; may be a bit as they are going to conventions soon. I posted about it at https://upsdownsfamilyhistory.wordpress.com/2018/10/09/bunnies-and-barrows-3rd-edition-rpg-kickstarter/. Fully funded, but a few minutes (less than 20) left with over $36,403 (785 backers) pledged for a $12,000 campaign. Leaving the link below active for now.

You can find the Kickstarter campaign for 3rd edition Bunnies and Burrows RPG at https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/froggodgames/bunnies-and-burrows. It ends October 25, 2018 1:01 AM.

Have you ever wanted to play a role-playing game (RPG) where you were a rabbit,  raccoon, squirrel, chipmunk, skunk, porcupine, opossum, jackrabbit, or armadillo? If so, Bunnies and Burrows (B&B) 3rd edition is the RPG for you. There is a Wikipedia article on the earlier editions of B&B: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bunnies_%26_Burrows.

Bunnies and Burrows has been a niche market since its first introduction in 1976 (2nd edition still available as a PDF on DriveThru RPG/DTRPGhttps://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/82542/Bunnies-And-Burrows?term=bunnies&test_epoch=0 for $5.00, but it has stayed popular in its niche. I have never played the game, but it was put out by one of my favorite gaming companies, Fantasy Games Unlimited (FGU): https://www.fantasygamesunlimited.net/, who also published: Aftermath! (post-World War III RPG), Bushido (Feudal Japan RPG originally published by two other gaming companies), Chivalry and Sorcery (C&S, fantasy RPG, 1st and 2nd editions published by FGU with 3rd and 4th editions published by two other gaming companies – FGU also published numerous supplements that added new elements to the game), Daredevils (pulp magazine RPG), Merc (modern mercenary/counter-insurgency RPG), Privateers and Gentlemen (piracy themed RPG), Space Opera (sci-fi RPG), Swordbearer (fantasy RPG, originally published by another gaming company), Villains and Vigilantes (V&V, superhero RPG), plus a host of other RPGs and board games. FGU published a second edition several years later. The 2nd edition was later modified by Steve Jackson Games and published as a GURPS supplement which is still available as a PDFhttp://www.warehouse23.com/products/gurps-classic-bunnies-and-burrows and https://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/231815/GURPS-Classic-Bunnies–Burrows for $7.99 on both sites.

The latest incarnation of Bunnies and Burrows was taken over by another gaming company that released a B&B Light version https://froggodgames.com/frogs/product-category/bunnies-burrows/ (free PDF also available on DTRPGhttps://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/226680/Bunnies–Burrows-Light which is also the gaming company behind the Kickstarter campaign.

  • Bribing the local authorities.
  • Gaining entrance into the next meeting of the Secret Masters.

  • Clinking and clanking against the table to drive your opponents insane during a chess match.
  • As sanity tokens when playing Cthulhu Dice (three sets of Illuminati Coins required, or just make your enemies use the glass stones while you use these fantastic coins).
  • Casually leave them lying on your desk to distress the innocent.
