A big THANKS to all of our backers, you made Legends and Lies a reality!

IF YOU MISSED THIS CAMPAIGN, DON'T PANIC! Just head to Shoot Again Games Facebook page  or www.shootagaingames.com

Look for our next game "Born To Serve" coming to Kickstarter in the future.

Born to Serve is a board game brawl between two to four jobless superheroes for the last job in town....at the local restaurant....waiting tables. Oh how the mighty have fallen.

ABOUT

Legends and Lies was initially developed ten years ago and has existed as a game simply made in PowerPoint in the most basic of formats. The game as been played by hundreds of people at conventions, local game stores and among friends. It's always been warmly received with many copies requested by the people who have played it. Finally, we have decided the time has come to give the game its due with proper art and printing. We are fortunate to have the game illustrated with the awesome art of Bess Goden. Legends and Lies features a high quality full color professionally printed 62 card deck in a professionally printed full color 5.5" x 3.5" two piece box with a 16 page rule book.

WHY MAKE A GAME

For me bringing "Legends and Lies" to life as a real game is a dream and passion I have had for a long time. Almost immediately after I became a player of strategy games I was modifying and then creating games of my own. Back then, around 1980, bringing one of my games to life was but a dream but thankfully in the years since technology has made it now possible for that dream to become a reality.

WHAT THE MONEY IS NEEDED FOR:

The money raised through this campaign will be going directly to print the games and hopefully pay for at least some of the amount spent on the artwork and other game related costs.

STRETCH GOAL #1 IS UNLOCKED - All pledges of $22 or more now include The Skeptic expansion for Legends and Lies.

Risks and challenges

Risks are few. All game artwork has been completed by a professional artist and test decks have been printed to ensure all artwork, printing, and game design elements appear as expected. Still, we are at the mercy of the printers as always. Our printer, The Game Crafter, is based in the US and our experience so far through several test production runs has been that the turnaround time has been very quick. In the case of a delay we will ship the games as soon as we receive them.

As for other risks, there is of course the constant threat of a zombie apocalypse or a Mad Max type scenario occurring. In this event games will be delivered personally via gyro copter though we may experience delays due to rogue biker gangs or zombie hordes.
