I was born at a very young age. I plan on living forever. So far, so good.

    hey! another deck building game!

    I would have expected something more along the lines of: “New for 2014: A draft-style dice game of deckbuilding with chibi zombie bunnies! Expect our kickstarter to launch soon!” Did I miss any tropes?

      Yeah, precision cut dice and chainmail dice bags.

      with lots of ks exclusives, crossover characters from other IP, custom dice and stretch goals we were not prepared for.

      We’ll post a game play video in the last week of KS.

      Expected deliver date 1 – 2 years after the listed expected date. 😀

        Ah, but it’s Cryptozoic, who still have nine months of “free pass” on any criticism thanks to their generosity toward backers of The Doom That Came to Atlantic City. Although, Tuco, I’m thinking Trope: The Deck Building Game about making chainmail dice bags that comes packaged in a chainmail dice bag (with stretch goal precision dice made from the same aluminum that NASA uses for its submarines) sounds like a winner.
