I read several webcomics. Some I’ve followed for quite some time. One that’s been around and has quite a following is Scandinavia and the World. It’s a humorous look at what countries would be like if they were people and how they’d interact with one-another. Now, they’re making a card game. It’s called A Heap of Trouble, and it’s about getting what those countries want the most, if they’re able. The game is up on Kickstarter now.
From the campaign:
In Scandinavia and the World countries are people. They live, laugh and love together as they explore their world. Some experiences bring wonder and excitement, but this day brings a problem: All of their stuff has been mixed together into a giant heap.
Now Scotland is fighting America over who needs that declaration of independence more, Russia is eyeing North Pole’s oil and nobody will admit to having stolen Denmark’s pornography. It’s down to you to recruit your favourite countries, make the most of their unique talents and find the things that they most desire.
Scandinavia and the World is a wildly successful and deeply humorous webcomic that’s been running since Humon conceived it in 2009. A Heap of Trouble plays on its themes of conflict, friendship and the recognition of our own absurdity.
The campaign is over its funding goal. So it’s on to stretch goals for the next 28 days.
