Announcing Postcard: The Board Game! I'm running a Kickstarter to get this printed, and you can back it here!

This game has been in development by a friend of mine for over three years, and we've playtested and tweaked it many times, watching it slowly morph from a low-level Monopoly clone into a modern, streamlined, cooperative game that borrows all the best bits of European boardgaming technology: namely hundreds of coloured meeples and little wooden cubes.

Now you can take on the roles of Antoinette, Lenny, Preston, Major Hamm, and yes, even Blackdrip, as you work to save the world and have interesting lives. The base game introduces a few other characters and settings, but much more of the detailed world of Postcard will be released in forthcoming expansions, including: The Suburbs, The North Side of the City, The Western Holiday Strip, London, Paraguay, Valhalla, and Venus Colony Zeta.

Backers get the complete board game, and there are stretch goals to include Roxanne, Lenny's Cat, the Mysterious Woman Who Only Ever Appears in the Background, Steve's brother-in-law, Albert, and Albert's brother-in-law, Steve, as playable characters.

We'll ship anywhere in the world*, and are really excited to finally get this out there into your hands!

* Except Bermuda, Togo, and the United States of America.
