March 7, 2020: Crowdfunding Focus: Monsters! Monsters!

Crowdfunding Focus: Monsters! Monsters!I have a very soft spot in my heart for Monsters! Monsters! - it was the first game project that I got paid to work on. This was back in 1976. My supervisor at Metagaming handed me Ken St. Andre's manuscript and said "Get this ready to publish!" So I did, and I enjoyed every minute of it. Especially since I "had" to play a lot in order to do a good job . . . Go on, twist my arm.

For those who haven't heard if it, Monsters! Monsters! is about as old school as you can get, with a twist that was unique in '76 and is still unusual. You play the monsters. Your party comes up out of the dungeons, enter the human cities, and look for loot and victims.

Here we are, 44 years later, and Steve Crompton and Ken St. Andre are releasing a new and heavily updated edition of Monsters! Monsters!, along with Ken's The Toughest Dungeon in the World. You can support them here, and well you should.
