Elected: The Game Relaunches on Kickstarter

Richard Nixon wasn't elected President the first time he ran. And he's not the only President we've had that didn't make it the first time around. That's alright. "If at first you don't succeed" and all that. That's the attitude taken by the folks behind Elected The Game. They didn't make it the first time, but they're back and ready to try again to get your vote (and pledge) on Kickstarter.

The goblins are up to something... I mean, they're goblins, they tend to be up to something.

I love a good, unique setting for a game book. This isn't one you see very often. It's a gloomy, nautical fantasy realm called The Driftwood Verses. Don't go all, "Aye, mehearties!" on me, as that's not really what's going on. They describe it as something out of Melville's Nantucket mixed with a soundtrack by Tom Waits (I love Tom Waits).
