Traveller is an RPG that's been around for... heck... seemingly forever. Millions of players have taken Marc Miller's game and used it to play out all sorts of interplanetary adventures. However, RPGs aren't always for everyone. Sometimes you'd want something a bit quicker-playing. Well, Traveller is being turned into a card game. It's up on Kickstarter now.
In the game, players are in control of their own ship, looking to make a living for themselves out among the stars. You'll do this by completing contracts. You do that by having the right skills required to fulfill that particular contract. Of course, there's not just flying around all on your own. No, there's plenty of chances to interact with your opponents... quite possibly by raiding their ship! The game usually plays 2-4 players, but there's a solo variant as well (and they're working on special extra solo adventures as well).
The campaign is just under half-funded with still 26 days left to go.
