Kickstarter/Indiegogo Spotlight: The Can Game

Kickstarter Spotlight - Geek-O-Rama - Can Game

What is the Can game?

Trick shot your way to the top! The Can game is an addictive, trick shot based family/party game that is sure to bring out your competitive side! The game itself is small enough to be played anywhere, by almost any age! Trick shots are just plain fun and rewarding to make. We wanted to create a simple, family friendly game that combines basketball with elements of beer pong and horseshoes. With other card and dice based games. We used coins, because they can be gathered up easily and the different weight and size of the coins makes for an interesting challenge. The funds from this Kickstarter campaign will fund the design work, cans and production of the card’s, dice and labels as well as packaging materials.

Thanks for taking at what looks to be a really fun kicks...

Kickstarter/Indiegogo Spotlight: Touching Evil Vol. 2

Kickstarter Spotlight - Geek-O-Rama - Touching Evil Comic

For those new to this award-winning supernatural thriller, the premise is simple: there is a curse that grants its bearers immortality and the power to kill people with a mere touch of the hand…if the person is evil. Sounds great, except for one little catch: the souls you kill live on in a prison inside your head. As if that wasn’t bad enough, what if the person you kill happens to be someone you care about? And what defines evil anyway?

In volume one we followed Ada Mansfield: a single mom and hard working attorney who stumbled upon the curse and had her whole life turned upside down as she learned who her friends and enemies were…the hard way.  Now in volume two she discovers there may be someone who can break the curse once and for all, but it comes at a price...

Why are we spotlighting a book that’s already funded and so close to completion? Because we love the message of this book. Because we love that the creators believe in it so much that they donated copies of issue #0 to charity. Because it’s awesome, even if they did use dialog instead of dialogue in their write up. (Personal pet peeve, don’t hold it against them....

Kickstarter/Indiegogo Spotlight: The Deck of Many Dungeons

Deck of Many Dungeons - Geek-o-Rama - Tabletop Gaming

Hi all! Katrina here with this week’s Kickstarter spotlight. This week, I wanted to bring you something that I personally found really cool and I found it with the Deck of Many Dungeons. I was first drawn to the art because it looked suspiciously like it was done by our good friend Travis Hanson.  Upon checking out the FAQ, I discovered that I was right! That got me in the door, but what kept me was the purpose of these really cool cards:

“Well it’s a deck of 54 playing cards, 53 actual usable cards which will have map elements printed on the back of them. A Game Master can use these cards to either shuffle up a random dungeon or to lay out their own custom dungeon for their friends!

The Deck of Many has 12 unique cards and multiples of each to literally allow a person to create well ...
