Today my dear friend Oliver McNeil launches his new Kickstarter campaign for the sequel to his award winning ( 😉 ) tabletop RPG, The Storymaster’s Tales Weirding Woods. The new adventure sees you as a hero trying to gain glory from the perilous Dracodeep Dungeon. New magic, new monsters and new characters abound in this fantasy Grimm-esque world. Having play-testing it live recently, I can tell you that it has all the makings of another masterpiece like it’s predecessor and it is great to see The Storymaster’s Tales universe expanding with another game in the pipeline even now. If you haven’t gone so yet, check out Mr McNeil’s Kickstarter by clicking this link The StoryMaster’s Tales “Dracodeep Dungeon” Hybrid RPG, via @Kickstarter https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/legendphotography/the-storymasters-tales-dracodeep-dungeon-hybrid-rpg?ref=android_project_share
So what can I tell you about today? Well I have just received a brand new card game from the genius minds of my close personal friends Oliver McNeil and Oliver Brooks named Grim Reaper. (Hence the title of this post, wasted here aren’t I?
My lady and I just had two games of it, the standard deck to begin with and then the extreme pack. It’s a perfectly simple game and the object is to get a higher score than your opponents while using you action cards to hinder their own progress. The cards have multiple depictions of gruesome ways to die…although suffocating in granny’s quilt seems a rather nice way to go. The more gruesome, the more value. But beware, any action cards you still have left over at the end of your 20 minute game gets deducted from any +cards you have. On our second game, my Mrs managed to bat me down from over +200 points by using a crafty action card in the last minute, then win with a score of 390!
I defy anybody to play this game and not be thoroughly annoyed when beat in this way plus many more lurid deaths. I can honestly say it’s thoroughly enjoyable, and would definitely recommend this game for 2-5 players to anybody.
