The Story War kickstarter just hit it’s $40k stretch goal, which unlocks a 5 pack of campaigns! What are campaigns? They’re a single sheet of rule variations that you can print out and read from top to bottom as you play the game. Here’s some examples of what a campaign could contain:
Like for example:
- A choose-your-own adventure style storyline, that uses cards from the player’s hands to fill in unknown variables, where the story’s path changes depending on the outcome of the battle!
- A list of 20 numbered alternate victory conditions for battle (“Woo the princess!” “Win an election!” “Defeat the opponent without drawing blood!” “Win a go-kart race!”) that you could use with a 20-sided die!
- A one-time-use storyline that plays out like an elaborate shaggy dog story with a big twist at the end!
The best thing about campaigns? We’ll be releasing some that we make ourselves, but players are free to create their own and share them with other players! We’ll even come up with a convenient way for players to share their campaigns with one another.
How’s that for re-playability?
Keep spreading the word about Story War to help us reach more stretch goals, including our ultimate stretch goal: $100k to build an online multiplayer client!
