Kickstarter Round-Up: 80s Nostalgia RPG, Tricky Sheep, & Roman Bits

4 Minute Read
Jun 16 2021

Come check out this week’s batch of Kickstarter and crowdfunding highlights!

Pride Dice Buddies

Everyone can roll with the tiny dice buddies. Show off your pride by adding a tiny dice buddy enamel pin to your jean jacket or ita bag, by sticking a sticker dice buddy to your car or favorite water bottle, and complete the look with a rainbow screen printed dice buddy t-shirt!

Pledges start at $3 for a sticker, $8 for a pin, and $25 for a t-shirt.


Sheep in Disguise

In a world full of predators, only the most clever of prey can survive. Unfortunately, sheep aren’t exactly known for being clever. So, in an effort to preserve all things fluffy, the Wizards and I present to you: Sheep in Disguise!

So, yeah, we disguised the sheep and it worked wonders. Sheep went by unnoticed and life was good. UNTIL IT WASN’T. Unfortunately, the disguises worked a bit too well… and we lost the sheep. This sudden shortage of sheep caused an economic collapse and the gold standard was quickly replaced by sheep.

Those with sheep became powerful shepherds, and those without them become barely recognizable goblins. Yuck. Now, everyone is scouring the globe to locate and collect the sheep by any means necessary. So, buckle your belts and tuck in your underbite. It’s about to get weird.


Pledges start at $20 for the game.


The Awfully Cheerful Engine – RPG 

Part homage, all farce, the Awfully Cheerful Engine! is an irreverent, affectionate parody of pop-culture tropes and a love letter to 80s roleplaying games in a new, modern comic-book sized format. It’s a wacky roleplaying game of action-comedy! 

Are you a fan of the Ghostbusters RPG from the 1980s? Danger Mouse or Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles? Bill & Ted or Rick & Morty? Back to the Future, Indiana Jones, Dracula, or sci-fi adventures on the final frontier? Do you enjoy chortling at TV tropes or chuckling at pop-culture parodies? Then the Awfully Cheerful Engine! is here for you!

Pledges start at $10 for a PDF.

Azrah: War of Heralds


Azrah: War of Heralds is a self-contained tactical card game for two players. Heralds (the Players) each recruit five Guardians for their party, then use that party to defeat their opponent’s party forces. Each guardian is drawn from popular archetypes familiar to fans of the fantasy genres,  with every Guardian vividly depicted and thematically constructed for the Azrah’s party-based combat system. Azrah features elements of deckbuilding, drafting, resource management, and tactical use of unique and characterful abilities.  Gameplay usually lasts around 15 to 25 minutes and is recommended for ages 12 and up.

Pledges start at $35 for a two-player set.
