Now we are looking to raise money via Kickstarter to get these games printed as an anthology. Our games range from a twisted journey into Lewis Carroll’s Wonderland to a colouring game about magical unicorns. Our brand is the macabre, the weird, and very often the cute. Each game comes with its own set of rules and setting information, which will provide you and your friends hours of fun. The anthology will be a roughly 200 page, a5 sized, soft cover book with a colour cover and a black & white interior. The book will include all 12 games we created last year ordered by the month we released them in. Each game is its own separate chapter and includes all the mechanics and setting information you need to play. The games are complete so all we need to do is a final editing pass and layout!”

A great selection.
But I'm clearly most excited about Cawood Publishing's third book in the #monsterseries, Monsters of the City!
If the last two books are any indication we're in for yet another wonderful addition to any DMs collection!
I'm glad Cawood is knocking it out of the park! :-D
