#RPGaDAY2015 – Day 2: Kickstarter you’re most pleased you backed

According to my Kickstarter history I’ve backed 94 projects thankfully most of them are digital so I’m not knee deep in packaging and boxes and about 10% have failed to be backed.

You could say I’m really enthused by the concept of Kickstarter and many of these projects aren’t really mainstream to be picked up by a standard distribution channel so in many ways crowd funding is the only way these games will see the light of day.

The project I’m most pleased I backed is Space: 1889 – SF Role Playing in a More Civilized Time.  I liked the original GDW game but the system was a bit wonky for my tastes, I bought the Savage Worlds Red Sands campaign and I felt let down by it.  The new edition from Clockwork is very good indeed and the Ubiquity system is a nice fit as well as letting me use material from other Ubiquity games.

About the Author

I've been gaming on and off since about 1989 and during that period have played with numerous game systems. I'm fluent in a few, have a basic understanding of quite a few more and can get by in others. Somewhere along the way I found time to be a playtester, contribute to an unpublished game supplement and be associated with another gaming magazine written by far more talented people than I. This lead to one infamous article being written in which I followed the letter of the adventure and torched the parties river barge. I'm also listed on as a game designer.
