Kickstarter Highlights: Sherlock Holmes Takes on Cthulhu and More

Come check out this week’s bundle of Kickstarter crowdfunding and highlights – including board games, TTRPGs, and dice!

Knives out – Dark Borg

Knives out is a zine designed by Greyson Yandt for MORK BORG which features way too many knives, a side of rapiers and fencing rulers, a seedy tavern (called the Red Rogue) that houses an underground enclave of thieves. Plus a handful of jobs that should be done with discretion, a detective class that doesn’t believe in luck or fate, and a massive heist (written by Tessa Lyne of Sailing Fox Press) to steal the crown of a Mad King lost in time! And more.

Contributions start at $5 for a PDF.

Famous – Singleplayer RPG

Famous is a science fiction role-playing game for one player.

Play to tell stories of Nomads; notorious bounty hunters who strike fear among the scum and villainy of the universe and follow the dubious code of Nomads Guild. In the midst of an intergalactic war, you will accept a lucrative contract with one of six factions. The job is simple: bring the target back, dead or alive, without decay.

Contributions start at $7 for a PDF.

Primordial Secrets

Before the birth of time itself, great divine beings called Primordials held court in the great void. Take your place among this eldritch pantheon as they dance, plot, create and devour. The universe to be born will be yours alone to shape.

Secret action selection, simultaneous play, big reveals, and multiple paths to victory elevate this interactive deck-building game into something more… cosmic. Fans of classic deck-building games will be at home with this new entry in the genre, but Primordial Secrets is so much more than that.

Pledges start at $39 for the base game.
