Kickstarter of the Week: Deluxe Tunnels and Trolls

The team who created the classic role-playing game Tunnels & Trolls comes together again to make the finest edition yet.

Launched: Jan 3, 2013
Funding ends: Feb 5, 2013

When it was first published in 1975, Tunnels & Trolls opened up the role-playing game genre, showing that these games could encompass a multiplicity of ways to make this segment of the game hobby exciting.

Kickstarter of the Week: The Wandering Owl

Editor’s Note: This week’s Kickstarter/Indiegogo campaign is a bit different. It’s not a comic book or even comic related. However, it is something close to my heart and something I believe that we should support if we can. It’s a small business. Life isn’t easy for the small businesses of the world so when one reaches out and asks for help and it’s run by good, quality people, I believe we should do what we can. So while The Wandering Owl doesn’t sell trading cards, it does sell hope. This is the little shop that could and I would love to see it turn into the little shop that did. 

Where Creativity and Spirituality Meet

Who we are

The Wandering Owl is a small metaphysical shop located at 139 N. Jackson Street in downtown Jackson Michigan...
