Kickstarter - Aliens & Asteroids: Sci-fi Horror Roleplaying

Its so easy to do a Kickstarter "wrong". So, what are the signs of doing one right?

Art that captures your attention? Check!

Knowing your limitations? Check!

Defined stretch goals? Check!

Setting a funding level where there will be no further stretch goals? Checkity check check...

Failsafes in place in case one or more team members can't stay with the project to the end? Nice to see this :)

Pledge levels that don't need a spread sheet to keep track of? Oh my God, yes!

Aliens & Asteroids has done a great job with the above checklist AND looks pretty cool too. Who doesn't want to play Ripley and team against the facehuggers and the brood mother? ;)

10 bucks for the PDF and all stretch goals in digital. 25 bucks for softcover rulebook, PDF and digital stretch goals. Oh yeah, keeping stretch goals in digital keeps costs down. Need to add that to the checklist.

Yep, I'm in for the dead tree level. Don't tell Rach. It will be our little secret ;)


  1. I don't think I've seen you talk about this one yet:

    1. We need to talk about Heart of Varrul more, where the heck are all the White Star supporters?

    2. When you find them, let me know so I can send them a link! :)

    3. The G+ community has over 900 members. I find it rather odd that Varrul is so slow to gain momentum.

    I can only do so much ;)

  3. Yeah, I got into this one day one. I'm going more simplified in my old age.

  4. I backed this because it looked fun, reasonable, and how could I resist sci-fi?
