Longtime readers will know my love of "gaming backpack games." They're the games that you can just toss in your backpack with you when you go to gaming night and pull out at a moment's notice when there's some downtime between other games. Well, up on Kickstarter now, there's a set of three such games. They're called GPS, Sequoia, and Mountain Goats, and each takes about 10min to play.
From the campaign:
I love the end of the night. When someone is about to go home, and I say "How about a game of X before you leave?" They smile and sit down. They can't resist because they know:
- The game is fast (like 10 minutes to play)
- It's quick to teach (like get started in 30 seconds)
- There will be tension and exciting moments
- It ends the night on a satisfying note of getting in one more quality game
This game series exists because I want there to be more games like that. We've focused on easy to teach before, but these are SUPER easy to teach.
But there is enough strategy that after the game your mind will wander back to a couple of key turns, and you'll wonder if you should have played just a little bit differently.
The campaign's more than 4.5x funded with 22 days left to go.
