Kickstarter - The Black Hack 2nd Edition



Holy shit! Talk about a runaway Kickstarter hit. The Black Hack 2nd Edition Kickstarter is doing extremely well - over $44k raised from a goal just over $6,600. It's sneaking up on 1k backers and still has 11 weeks left to fund.

Let's pull out our checklist:

Well done and short video? Damn near perfect for this project. I'd give it an 'A'.

Experienced project manager at the helm? Yep, Peter Regan - SquareHex / Gold Piece Productions. Another solid 'A'

Well explained rewards section? You have no idea how often this is forgotten or overlooked. Yep, another 'A'

Ah heck, let's just give the whole thing a solid "a" :)

There is a magic to The Black Hack and it is immensely "hackable". Definitely looking forward to this one.

I'm not sure of the sweet spot is $40 or $53 (levels 3 and 4). Argh! Need to think ;)

  • Level 0 - No reward.
  • Level R - This is for retailers only. By selecting this pledge level you will get updates and the option to place a trade order if you wish in October.
  • Level 1 - PDFs of both The Black Booklet and The Black Hack rules, plus PDFs of the 3 panel GM's screen and Character Sheets - £5
  • Level 2 - All the PDFs, 20 page The Black Booklet in print, 3 panel GM's screen in print, 4 character class sheets - £12
  • Level 3 - All the PDFs, 20 page The Black Booklet in print, 124 page The Black Hack rules in print, 3 panel GM's screen in print, 4 character class sheets. Beta Document access- £30

  1. Must be nice to have a cool surname to put on your product. :( At first I really hated the minimalist video (if I knew nothing about the game, it wouldn't have drawn me in at all), but then I came around to see that it marries up to the game very well.

    1. In the last few days i intend to do some livestreaming, Q&A's and some smaller videos etc - for anyone who's on the fence and wants more, but at this stage in the KS (and the games life) it should be mostly clear what its all about! Anyway, thanks for checking it out regardless.

  2. This is one case where I wish a KS was going to be using RPGNow/POD as the shipping from the UK isn't any nicer for us then shipping from the US to there is for them.

  3. I've been playing and hacking The Black Hack for a couple years now. Great game, and easy to run.
