    First - thank you for considering this! At this level you will receive a copy of Disaster Looms, with one of each extra included. Additionally, you will receive a copy of every game we produce for life. After Disaster Looms! is published we are pursuing 2 previously untouched IPs and creating games around them. I can only tell you that they are sci-fi series of books, and have lasting popularity. We are also producing family games - we have 1 in play test, and a 2nd is just past the concept phase. We also have non-sci-fi strategy, miniatures, and more on the docket. We will be releasing at lest a few titles though KS - and hopefully be able to stand on our own 2 feet after this.

    In addition to receiving games from BFR for life, we would like to meet each of you at conferences we will be attending throughout the year - and will plan a party for everyone attending Origins, GenCon, and several smaller conferences this year as well!

    You also can be a contributor to our success - as we will ask these members to be as active as they would like in our play-test program, and provide candid feedback and direction for games in production ... and future games that we should be making!
