Kickstarter - Aces & Eights: Reloaded, a Wild West role playing game
Let me start this by saying "I don't own the original Aces & Eights RPG." Its not that I wasn't interested in it. I was. I just never got around to grabbing myself a copy.
+Jolly Blackburn was kind enough to give me an early peek a the KS page for Aces & Eights Reloaded and I must say I was impressed. Its a good looking project that is nearly completely written and its from KenzerCo - I've never seen Kenzer produce less than an excellent product.
I do like the idea of a Shot Clock transparency to see where your shot actually lands. Pretty damn cool. And yes, the Shot Clocks (regular and shotgun) are included with physical copies of the book, It isn't clear but its already been asked and answered in the comments section (although it might need to be added to the FAQ or the main text - it WILL come up again and again and those comments and answers are going to fall off the page at some point)
Basic print buy in for a softcover is $50, $60 to add in a PDF copy and stretch goals. Personally, I think the sweet spot is $90 and here's why:
Extra Shot Clocks for the table and poker decks. Not enough players to play an RPG? Fleece your fellow players in a game of poker ;)
