KICKSTARTER PALS ALERT – Story War promo!
Machine of Death: The Game of Creative Assassination is a creative storytelling game. Its fun elements are created by you in the process of playing the game.
Story War is a little bit similar to Machine of Death in its broad strokes ("combine random elements to accomplish a wacky objective"), but varies in the particulars. Theirs has no machine, of course, and where we use a die and a timer to add an element of chance into the gameplay, Story War is more subjective. But their locations, creature, and item cards are not dissimilar from our Gift Cards and Specialists, and I would go so far as to call them members of the same species, i.e. "can interbreed and produce fertile offspring."
So if you’re looking for more games to enjoy – or if you want to take on the totally doable and in fact surprisingly intuitive challenge of combining both games into a super storytelling übergame – check out their campaign, running right now!
If you pledge to both games (physical versions), we're gonna compare our backer lists and each send you an exclusive bonus card: a Machine of Death card that references Story War, and a Story War card that references Machine of Death! We'll also send you a PDF with a set of suggested CROSSOVER RULES for combining both cards in HIGH STAKES INTERLEAGUE PLAY.
There's no need to do anything special; we'll figure out who gets the bonus cards thanks to TECHNOLOGY. Enjoy!!
