Stay on Target

So five days ago I issued a challenge: If we could get to $5,000 dollars by today, I would add two more cards to the game. How did that turn out? Just shy of $9,000. 80% in less than a week. We are doing pretty darn good. We have a new card to add to... (Read More)

Now On Kickstarter “Redshirts 2: Leprechauns Revenge”

February 16th - via:
After nearly 15 months worth of waiting fans of the game Redshirts can finally get some expansions. Weaselpants Productions has launched “Redshirts 2: Leprechauns Revenge” on Kickstarter. Additionally they have a pledge level that will give you “Redshirts 3: Beating a Red Horse” as well. Included with nearly every pledge level are 8 internet “celebrity” cards that you can play with ranging from Jonathan Coulton (JoCo) to David Reddick. These expansions seem to be following in the great jocular punny vein that the original game featured. (Read More)

Kickstarter News! And you can murder me, Mike Williamson, or Howard Tayler!

February 16th - via:
That’s (metaphorically) murder me. Better clarify. Though depending on the target audience, I’m betting he could raise a whole lot of money with that pledge level! Redshirts is one of those awesome card games where you get together with your friends and try to screw each other over. Your goal is to kill all your crew, because that’s how starship captains know they had the best adventure. (Read More)

So that worked out better than I planned.

February 12th - via:
So last night I asked for people to share this campaign. As incentive I offered a few extra cards if we can hit just shy of the halfway point by Monday. And immediately one of you upgraded to the Admiral level. It wasn't what I had in mind, but that... (Read More)

Day 2

February 11th - via:
So here we are on day 2. Progress seems to have slowed down quite a bit. I'm doing my part, searching the various corners of the internet, and ruthlessly cramming information about the game in. But I can't do it alone. Which is where you folks come... (Read More)

Day One

Well let's tally up how we did.  $2053. Not bad for the first 12 hours.    18% of our goal in the first day. That's just about one fifth of the way there.   Now all we need is for each of you to help find four more people to bid at the same level... (Read More)
