It lives! The Kickstarter for Oddball Aeronauts: Pirates vs the Pendragon is live.
I was lucky enough to get to try out a preview demo copy of this rather brilliant game over the holidays. Besides really sweet looking artwork this game has a pretty cool twist: it's a card game you don't need a surface to play on. You play the game 'in hand' never needing to put a card down anywhere.
Check out the full review I posted back on January 22nd to see how maverick:muse managed to pull this off.
Even cooler, when I made the deal to get to try out the game I also talked Nigel Pyne, the game's designer, into letting me host a giveaway right here on the Windsor Gaming Resource Blog. This is our first official giveaway and it's something I'm really excited about. Be sure to spread the word to your fellow gamers.
What you can win:
Dueling in the clouds is dangerous work. Besides having to worry about what your opponent is doing you also have to worry about potentially game changing events. Like a giant sky Kraken attack or a minefield. One of the events that will be included in the kickstarted version of the game is the "Bounty Hunter".
You can help design the Bounty Hunter. The winner of this giveaway will work with Lloyd Ash Pyne, the game's artist, to develop the card art, choose a name for the character that will appear on the card, receive the original artwork and be credited in the rule book as a co-designer of that card.
How cool is that?
