Zafir RPG Up On Kickstarter

Many RPGs take shortcuts when it comes to combat. At the very least, it tends to put things in 2 dimension and just kinda doesn't do much with elevation. Zafir: Tactical RPG looks to make it much more granular. As you can tell from "Tactical RPG" in its name, it looks to give you a combat system that is full of potential tactical choices each round for your characters. The book is up on Kickstarter now.

Revised Edition of King for a Day Up On Kickstarter

Even games that continually get 5 stars and are best-sellers can occasionally use an update. And that's what you get with King for a Day: Revised. It's the game you've loved, but just some tweaks here and there that make it even better. How much better?

Last Aurora Board Game Up On Kickstarter

Most post-apoclyptic games you see are set in a desert. But Last Aurora puts the "winter" in Nuclear Winter. This isn't some sun-scorched wasteland.

The game is up on Kickstarter now.
