Kickstarter Weekly–April 4, 2014

4 04 2014

Hey everyone! We have some exciting news for you all! But we can’t tell you just yet! Such a let down, right?

Anyway, we’re going to jump in with this week’s Kickstarter Weekly, and there’s some cool stuff to check out from some of our favorite publishers and designers, so let’s get crackin’!

 

Featured Campaign!

storytellerStoryteller Cards: Fantasy – Jason Tagmire

Our good friend Jason Tagmire is back with another deck of Storyteller cards. Storyteller cards serve as a regular deck of playing cards, a creative tool, and a way to teach creativity to young gamers – think story dice. Along with the cards, your pledge will score you the Storyteller Manual–in PDF form, or as an add-on–that will have games designed by some fantastic designers specifically for the deck of cards you’ll be getting. The first game announced is Divvy In The Dungeon by the one and only Jason Kotarski, you may know him as the guy who designed a TOG favorite The Great Heartland Hauling Co. And who has a few more games hitting the market this year with Crash Games! With more to come, this campaign is super inexpensive to get into and packs a lot of potential; we think you should jump on board!

The campaign ends on April 24, and a pledge of $10 will get you a deck of your own! You can find all of the details right here!
