Previously I posted that Toy Vault was going to be publishing The Princess Bride Roleplaying game. Well, it’s live on Kickstarter now, but wait! As a huge fan of the movie, the Kickstarter is leaving me a little flat and uninspired.
First, it’s using the FUDGE system that was created by the designer of this game years ago. FATE is a flavor of FUDGE and more widely known. The system itself is sound, but kind of dated when compared to the newer and more popular FATE system. Second, The buy-in price point is tolerable, but the funding goal is 45K and it seems, to me, they might not garner enough interest to met the goal. Third, I just can’t imagine there is lots of replayability unless the GM is creating new content; which is a totally fine, but may not be for purist like myself. Like I said it leaves me a little uninspired. I think I will have to pass even though this my favorite movie.
What are you thoughts?
