The galaxy is full of opportunities for those out there looking to be adventurous. It’s like a new frontier and Wild West… in fact, it’s essentially that all over again. That’s where you find yourself in Galactic Scoundrels, a new collaborative storytelling game from Little Rock Games. It’s up on Kickstarter now.
About the game:
The designers at Little Rock Games are coming to Kickstarter to seek funding for their first game, Galactic Scoundrels: A Game of Space Western Mayhem. Gamers familiar with the storytelling of Fiasco, Fate Accelerated, and Firefly: The Game who are looking for a more streamlined experience with some gambling and negotiation will find it in Galactic Scoundrels.
Galactic Scoundrels has been rigorously playtested, and it will launch on Kickstarter with the full art and design complete. The Kickstarter campaign will feature the game at the discounted price of $25, including EU-friendly shipping and free shipping to individuals in the US and Canada.
About the game
Galactic Scoundrels is a game made by and for people who love science fiction stories from the morally questionable end of the galaxy. From Firefly to Cowboy Bebop to Star Wars to Rick and Morty, the game has a trope for just about every scoundrel story out there, but it tilts toward the space western genre more than most.
You have one goal in the game: to become the richest swindler in the galaxy, while telling some beautiful stories along the way. You’ll attempt this by agreeing to some not-very-nice jobs. Whether it’s an assassination, a kidnapping, or just an old-fashioned smuggling run, everyone playing tells the tale of each job one event at a time. Every action taken, every roll of the dice, every card played advances the story, complicating the adventure of the scoundrel who’s trying to make it to payday. Adventures can be serious or silly, tame or wild, absurd or plausible, whatever the players in your game decide. Along the way, the game will have you gambling, bluffing, negotiating, and occasionally tricking other players for a bit of extra profit.
It’s a wild, woolly mess of a galaxy out there, and it’s filled with stories. See if you have what it takes to survive them in Galactic Scoundrels.
The campaign is making its way to half-funded with still 29 days left to go.
