Monster Hunter Nation

Kickstarter News! And you can murder me, Mike Williamson, or Howard Tayler!

That’s (metaphorically) murder me. Better clarify. Though depending on the target audience, I’m betting he could raise a whole lot of money with that pledge level!

Redshirts is one of those awesome card games where you get together with your friends and try to screw each other over. Your goal is to kill all your crew, because that’s how starship captains know they had the best adventure.

Redshirts the Game is not in any way related to a TV and movie series which sues people for IP violations, and the game is not related to some novel of the same name which won a bunch of awards.

You are probably familiar with the creator of this game. That is Skippy of the infamous Skippy’s List. (as in, the great big list of all the things Skippy is no longer allowed to do in the US Military).  I met him a couple of years ago at GenCon, great guy, great game, and I’m glad to plug him.

This is an expansion, which means you’ll need the original game to play. But luckily he’s got a pledge level that hooks you up with that too.

I am one of the red shirt crew members. So if you like me, check it out. If you don’t like me, even better. Send me to wrestle with a tar monster or punch out a lizard man!

I had no clue this was a Skippy product. Now I have GOT to play this game.

Wow, the artist sure took liberties with the cartoon of you. Unrealistically good looking!

And extremely downsized. Unless the others are NFL defensive ends in their spare time.

I was going to ask why Jonathan Coulton was taller than Larry.

I want Howard’s boots!

It’s just perspective. Larry is *farther away*.

WeaselPants Productions apologizes for the error in scale, and has created a corrected card.

I hope the corrected card is legit. That is really funny. (I too had the initial reaction of… isn’t Larry just a little bit…. small?)

Isn’t Angering the International Lord of Hate something that Skippy is Not Allowed to Do ??? (evil grin)

Larry’s still big. It’s the cards that got small. 😉

I will say this.

The game was funny as he**.

That said – best played at 3-4 people. More than that and the numerous ways a table full of people can screw with you keep the game from ever finishing.

Say what you will about scalzi’s book, but I consider coulton’s song to be one of the better things to come out of the project.

So I noticed that the creator rejected any possible art of a “hentai space walrus.” But no mention of a sociopathic space *manatee*

“Ensign” Sir Brass has just pledged…

Of course this means he’s going to die horribly the next time he beams down :P.

This sounds kind of like “Paranoia” where you play Troubleshooters in a world with an insaine computer running a dystopa. It also sounds like lots of fun!

P.S.: You should totally punch that space dinosaur in the face. That’s what the Captain would do…

Me, I’m going to go off into this cave where no one can see or hear me. I bet the Salt Monster isn’t real anyways…

Is Lar DSouza related to Dinesh DSouza?

He’s the cartoonist behind Looking For Group and Least I Could Do. I used to follow LICD until last summer when he used the strip “When everyone is away at ComiCon” to do a great big gigantic FU at Conservatives. Bookmark deleted.

Do you remember the date that comic came out? My Google-Fu is failing me today and I need to see that thing.

Sweet, thanks!

Holy crap, you weren’t kidding. That was extremely douchetastic. They can go screw off and take their carbon tax with them.
