Folklore: The Affliction

It's the Saturday before Thanksgiving. Man... my grocery list was 2x as long as usual. I got 2 turkeys, some sweet potatoes, russet potatoes, Brussels sprouts, dressing, carrots, and ingredients to make 2 pumpkin pies. ... I, uh... kinda take Thanksgiving seriously. My fridge is rather full. But before we get there, we've gotta get you those reviews I know you so desperately desire.

This week we have: Hotshots, Alien Artifacts, America, Noxford, Twilight Imperium, Rhein: River Trade, Queendomino, Exit the Game Wave 2, Folklore: The Affliction, and The Expanse.

The week rolls on. To think we've already made it to Wednesday. We deserve something nice. Like... a batch of bite-sized stories served up all in one place for your convenience. Yeah, that sounds good.
So let's get to it.

Today we have: Bailey Records New Release: Kaiju Kaos - OMFG Series 4 Stat Cards, Folklore: The Affliction announces Story Journal created with Adam & Brady Sadler, Dragonborn - Symphonic Album for Table RPGs Kickstarter, Rebel Minis Releases 15mm Civilian Hunters Pack #3 now Available, Alternative Armies: Dwarf Runic Golem 28mm kit pre-order offers now live, Nova Aetas - Vesuvio's Forge overview, Purgatory Releases St. Peter Figure, New Medieval Soccer tokens and templates from Advanced Deployment, A0 The Rising Knight -- Adventures for 5th Edition Rules, Now available – Flagstone Deals From Tabletop-Art, Bardagi - The claim for Gold - 170% funded on Kickstarter, Red Box Games Halloween 20% Sale, and Machu Picchu Dice on Kickstarter.

Sometimes you want to play an RPG, but nobody wants to be the DM. That can put you and your gaming group in quite a bind. You're all prepped for a highly-immersive experience, but everyone has a character they want to play, as opposed to having to run the world. Thankfully, there are board games out there that fill in perfectly. Greenbrier Games has launched a Kickstarter for one such game. Folklore: The Affliction is up now and looking for funding.
Are you afraid of what goes "bump" in the night?
I'm not because it's probably just my damn neighbors making noise again. Gah!
Anyway, if you lived in the world of Folklore: the Affliction from Greenbrier Games, you probably would be. Folklore is a new adventure board game that has been in development for 5 years. The fellows over at Greenbrier have decided it's time for the game to meet the public, and so it'll be coming to Kickstarter next month.
