Tabletop Kickstarter Round-Up: June 24, 2020

5 Minute Read
Jun 24 2020

A spooky card game, a storage solution for terraforming fans, a mystery delivered to your door, and a story that takes players to the inferno. Come check out this week’s batch of crowdfunding highlights!

Sleep Tight – PnP Card Game

Team up against the Sandman or turn against each other. If the Sandman is killed, everyone wins. But if one of you wakes up first, they win, while the other players stay trapped in the nightmare forever, left as a feast for the Sandman. Try this game of cooperation, conflict, betrayal, and nightmares.

Sleep Tight is a game with a unique atmosphere and fast and dynamic gameplay. We played a lot of board games, card games and tons of RPGs and wanted to create an easy to learn game that relies on a universal language (uses just symbols and icons for all actions – which are easy to learn). The game is also full of tactics and options and demands a mastering of the possibilities and choices as it can be a game of cooperation, individual play, or backstabbing while you play as the Sandman’s undercover ally.

Pledges start at $1 for a print and play copy.

Maximum Apocalypse RPG


Maximum Apocalypse: The Roleplaying Game is based on the acclaimed board game series of the same name. In Maximum Apocalypse: RPG, players take on the roles of survivors of one of many apocalypses, adventuring across the ravaged wasteland attempting to survive the many dangers that lurk around every corner. In order to survive, you will need to scavenge and craft new items while also scrounging for food and fighting off everything from zombies to an alien invasion. 

Survival is not guaranteed; there are a multitude of ways to encounter death. Alien Invaders harvest survivors for organic components; Robots seek a utopia free from humans, and Zombies are insatiable stalkers. Maximum Apocalypse: the Roleplaying Game combat is a savage and brutal exchange of attacks against overwhelming odds. Along with their companions, players use dice, teamwork, ingenuity, and special abilities to accomplish goals and overcome obstacles. Standing alive together when the smoke clears is the ultimate goal of Maximum Apocalypse: The Roleplaying game. Can you survive the apocalypse?

Pledges start at $10 for a PDF and $20 for a softcover rulebook.


The Messenger: An Immersive Mystery

We have developed a new interactive mystery that will immerse and puzzle players across the country from the comfort of their own homes. [We want to] take The Messenger beyond a single prototype so that fans of immersive fiction and escape rooms can experience our tightly woven narrative from anywhere in the United States!

An unexpected parcel arrives at your door… its contents are a mystery and it appears that anyone who receives the parcel must follow a strict set of rules, or suffer the consequences:

  • The parcel must remain in the current owner’s possession.
  • One must never reveal any details concerning the parcel’s delivery or its contents. 

However, the previous owner, Shaun Lyons, has broken the rules, targeting you as the parcel’s next recipient. It’s now up to you to decipher the information and find a way to break the cycle. The fate of your soul and those of others rests on your ability to solve the mystery. Tick Tock… 

Pledges start at $65 for the entire mystery adventure.

KULT: Divinity Lost – Horror RPG Expansion


In KULT: Divinity Lost, the world around us is a lie. Mankind is trapped in an Illusion. We do not see the great citadels of Metropolis towering over our highest skyscrapers. We do not hear the screams from the cellar where hidden stairs take us to Inferno. We do not smell the blood and burnt flesh from those sacrificed to long forgotten Gods. But some of us see glimpses from beyond the veil. We have this strange feeling that something is not right – the ramblings of a madman in the subway seem to carry a hidden message, and our reclusive neighbor doesn’t appear to be completely human. By slowly discovering the truth about our prison, our captors, and our hidden pasts, we can finally awaken from our induced sleep and take control of our destiny.


More information about the role-playing game and its dark world can be found here.

Pledges start at $43 for digital-only version and $81 for a printed bundle with PDFs – other levels are available.
