I recently decided to run a Dungeons and Dragons (D&D) campaign as the Dungeon Master (DM). I had been going back and forth on deciding if I was going to do this for well over a year. Running these things is a massive commitment, yet exciting. Shows like Critical Role helped get me excited to role play again.
At one time, I had crazy amounts of dwarfs, humans, goblins, monsters, and other fantasy creatures. That’s just inevitable when you are an avid Warhammer collector. However, when Warhammer Fantasy Battles came to an end, I came to realize that there was less and less of an opportunity to use them. Because of this, I sold most of my massive collection off.
This meant that I needed to expand my miniatures collection as a Dungeon Master. With a couple of months before the first session I dug out my Reaper Bones Kickstarter models and started through the game store in search of models I did not have and would need.
Welcome to Kickstart Monday! Kickstart Monday is our weekly series where we feature two or more crowdfunded projects in the tabletop gaming industry. This week, we are looking at two games that cater to a variety of play styles.
Dice Trucking is a Print and Play game by Derik Duley. In this game you construct and send a space transport on peril filled runs. Turns are simultaneous, which means minimal downtime for players. Throughout the game, you work on building and repairing your ship and racing across space to deliver cargo and earn credits. At $3 USD to back, this looks to be a fun filler game to add to your collection.
The second game this week has both a Roleplaying and Card Game version. Check out the Ultimate Dungeon Showdown by Zombie Orpheus. In both versions you are recruiting an adventuring party and battling for the title of Ultimate Dungeon Champion. Back either the card game, roleplaying game, or both, depending on your interest. Either way you get an adventure for you and your friends as well as options for some fun and unique add-ons.
