Middle school was actually the best part of my education as a youth. There was the class crush, the impending dance and pretty much everything else a pre-teen had to worry about. Good times though, I swear.
The only tragedy of the time, if I’m being honest, was when I had to attend the school dance. That, my friends, is a post for another day.
This week’s kickstarter features Tragedies of Middle School, “an anthology of tabletop role-playing games, story games, live action games, and other strangeness inspired by the greatest HORROR of all… junior high.”
Each game in The Tragedies of Middle School centers around a nostalgic junior high activity – spin the bottle, Truth or Dare, passing notes, Bloody Mary, school dances, friendship bracelets, etc. The PG-13 horror vibe running throughout represent the fear, awkwardness, and angst of being a thirteen year old. It’s the worst!
The Tragedies of Middle School currently* features 20 games and activities with more to come as we hit stretch goals throughout the campaign (fingers crossed!). 20 designers and 3 artists, from a diverse mix of backgrounds, are already involved, ready to share their middle school experiences and game styles. THERE ARE EVEN A FEW CURRENT MIDDLE SCHOOLERS!
There are only a few days left to support this kickstarter and look at all of the goodies that you can get by doing so. If you pledge $30 or more you can receive one physical copy of the Tragedies of Middle School anthology and one RPG-13 enamel pin. Also includes digital PDFs and print files. All stretch goals are added.
Pledging $50 or more will get you all of the previous mentioned, but also includes a limited edition copy of “Did you hear about the Kid who died here?”
