Cheapass Games Retrospective Book Up On Kickstarter

For about as long as I can remember going to the gaming store, I remember seeing little bags with Cheapass Games on the side. They were a couple bucks each, and they were just fun, little games you could play in-between bigger games. I'd played a few over the years, but I never really realized just how many of those games there were. Now, Cheapass is running a Kickstarter campaign for an anthology of their products.

From the campaign:

In the summer of 1996, James Ernest began his quest to bring happiness and joy to all the people of the world, by creating clever tabletop games and selling them really cheap. He named his company Cheapass Games, and we're still going today.

Since that first year, we have released more than 100 original games: card games, board games, dice games, free games, and more. 

Cheapass Games in Black and White is a collection of all of our black and white games, with the rules and histories of favorites like Kill Doctor Lucky, Lord of the Fries, Button Men, and many others. It also has many more obscure games, like Escape from Elba, Pennywise, Dogfight, and The Lost Pueblo of Doctor Green, and a few prototypes and unreleased games you've never heard of.

If you're a fan of Cheapass Games, an aspiring game designer, or just interested in the history of the company, read on.

The campaign's more than 2x funded with still 28 days to go.
