Gaming Sunday July 7, 2019

AS ALWAYS, CHECK PRICES BEFORE ORDERING as sales can end or prices change before I update them. Also, some sales only have so many items or keys available for purchase so the sale ends as soon as they run out of items or keys.

None of the links below are affiliate links!

Week 34 Gaming Sunday Week – will do my best to update 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 and a number of bundles that exceeds what I can add here without making it longer than it’s worth) 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 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.

Demons: A Star Trek Fan Film: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/demons-a-star-trek-fan-film–2/ The latest Star Trek fan film; ended in mid April 2019. $6,505 pledged of $8,500 goal.
Convergence – a Star Trek Fan Film Indiegogo Campaign: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/convergence-a-star-trek-fan-film#/. Ended November 3, 2018. $7,385 of $5,500 pledged (fully  backed as of November 2, 2018). Will keep pending updates on Backerkit which hasn’t shown up yet.
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#/.

Hopefully, they will bring it back as it sounded like a promising RPG.

Here’s the Kicktraq for the campaign: http://www.kicktraq.com/projects/cns5/chivalry-and-sorcery-the-medieval-role-playing-game/.

Also, in looking at DriveThru RPG (DTRPG) earlier, I noticed a number of items on sale at Brittannia Game Designs – https://www.drivethrurpg.com/browse/pub/3675/Brittannia-Game-Designs-Ltd/subcategory/6429/Chivalry–Sorcery.

Zorro™: The Roleplaying Game: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/gallantknightgames/zorrotm-the-roleplaying-game I did a blog post on this game Zorro RolePlaying Game Kickstarter Campaign Ends February 22, 2019.

This project will only be funded if it reaches its goal by Fri, February 22 2019 6:00 PM CST. $32,124 pledged (as of February 24, 2019) of $15,000 goal; fully funded. Campaign over, waiting on pledge manager if they go that route – nothing showing up as of June 23, 2019.

Chimera Comics Cellar Door Sci-Fi and Horror Graphic Novel Anthology: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/chimerascomics/cellar-door-a-scifi-and-horror-graphic-novel-antho/ (sci-fi and horror collection, parental guidance advised). $8,477 pledged of $11,000 by 160 backers of campaign (as of November 23, 2018). Not mentioned in the article is the Live Stream October 31, 2018 about the campaign; you can get a free preview (link is a bit down the Kickstarter page, or try https://mailchi.mp/chimerascomics.com/look-in-the-cellar – link shows as http://bit.ly/lookinthecellar which redirects to the Mail Chimp link I added). If you pledged $20 or more in the first 72 hours of the campaign, then you get an exclusive item, 8.5″ x 11″ print (shipping is another $2 for U.S. addresses):

Thousand Year Old Vampire Kickstarter RPG Campaign: Late Backers accepted (still available as of June 23, 2019) – https://shop.trycelery.com/page/d3060069-61df-4789-a974-f4e1fc9a499d; original campaign https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/timh/thousand-year-old-vampire-a-roleplaying-game Ended November 16, 2018 1:15 AM CST. Fully funded: $37,102 pledged by 1,423 backers 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.

Chibi Siblings of Conflict Kickstarter Campaign: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/674003445/chibi-siblings-of-conflict-miniatures. Ended November 15, 2018. $12,051 pledged of $2,300 goal; 181 backers. Fully funded! Leaving up temporarily.

They will be doing a video update in the near future – will link to it once they add it. Still waiting on a pledge manager (Backerkit, etc.) to show up as of July 9, 2019. They are closer to getting stuff out as a recent update on Kickstarter announced.

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.

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 Kickstarter: Campaign has ended; should be a Backerkit added in the near future; may be a bit as they are going to conventions soon.
