New on Kickstarter - The Siblings Trouble
April 15, 2015 - 10:16pm
Pencil First Games (Murder of Crows, Lift Off! Get Me Off This Planet!) launched their newest game The Siblings Trouble on Kickstarter. The Siblings Trouble is a cooperative card game for 2 to 4 players inspired by the magic of childhood imagination.
The Siblings Trouble boils down all the core elements of an RPG (storytelling, exploration, discovery, treasure, encounters, etc.) into a fun-to-play narrative romp. This is a 30 minute game you can play as an ice-breaker, in-betweener, or as a way to introduce storytelling and adventure games to new players.More in the vein of The Goonies than the Lord of the Rings, players will cooperatively explore a Mysterious Place through a series of narrative moments. Victory is achieved by surviving all of these moments and the final Boss to earn the Epic Treasure at the end of the game. The Siblings Trouble was named a finalist in Season 2 of Tabletop Deathmatch, an independent game design contest hosted by Cards Against Humanity. Feedback from this experience prompted some improvements in the game:
Card / Presentation Clean Up Cards were hard to read and needed clean up. They are much improved. We also had great feedback on making each card spectacular. We embraced this and every card was refined. Every turn ends with something Another change we made was to ensure that every turn, no matter what card or roll occurs, the player adds something interesting to the story. Big Secret / Fear Counters / Adventure Deck structure The biggest single piece of feedback we received was that our game experience felt flat and didn't offer enough sense of progress and climax. We took this to heart, thought a lot, and designed the Big Secret / Fear Counter system.Get all the details, including reviews, stretchgoals, and the full rules, by visiting The Siblings Trouble campaign page.
