Red & White Box Update; New Chronicles RPG Kit Live

Two new updates I wanted to share with you!

Chronicles RPG Kit

First up, we just launched a new Kickstarter called Chronicles RPG Kit. Inspired by Kickstarter’s make/100 initiative, I’m sharing a few tools that I’ve been using at my home games with great success. The Chronicles RPG Kit is a series of system-neutral, old-school booklets with tools to help you run well organized, dynamic roleplaying games. I’m particularly excited to share Malloy’s Almanac, which is a cool booklet I’ve been using in prototype form for many months to run dynamic, no-prep games. I love it!

Backers are capped at 100, so get them while you can!

Red & White Box Printer Proofs

A few days ago I got the proofs for the Red & White Boxes. Thought I’d share the pictures below of what that looks like. The printouts on the left are to verify the layout. The printouts on the right are to verify the colors. It all looks great and I OK’d for the print run.

We’re on track to ship in late February or (more likely) March. I’ll continue to keep you posted!

Kickstarter Tabletop Games Top $100 Million; Roll20 Tops 2 Million

The market for Tabletop games is booming! This in from ICV2:

Backers pledged $113 million to tabletop game projects in 2016 according to numbers released by the company. That represents a 28% growth rate over last year’s $88.9 million in pledges (see “Tabletop Games Pass Video Games on Kickstarter”). Tabletop games projects had a 55% success rate on Kickstarter.

And as was the case last year, tabletop games drew far more support than video games, with $29 million in video game projects bringing the total for all games to $142 million on 6,970 games projects, 2,589 of them successful. (Source)

On a related note, Roll20.net hit 2 Million Users.  That’s a lot of online roleplaying gamers.  What a great time to be a roleplayer!
