My friend Peter Petrusha (Imagining Games) has a cool new game coming out called Rest in Pieces, and it’s on Kickstarter now (but ending soon). Pete also enlisted me to write one of the game’s expansions!
Rest in Pieces is a cool roleplaying game that uses a Jenga tower as a resolution mechanic (and does some new things with this idea). Here’s a brief summary:
“You play fed-up deadbeat roommates that happen to share a “pad” with none other than the Grim Reaper! What can go wrong, does go wrong in this ridiculous game about bad days and difficult friendships. Imagine playing out dark comedy stories like in The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy, The Regular Show, Rick & Morty, and It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia. Rest in Pieces is a dark comedy RPG that plays with a two-color jenga tower and a unique deck of cards.”–Rest in Pieces Kickstarter
My expansion puts you in a leaky flophouse with Great Cthulhu instead of the Grim Reaper, and includes other cards to support a Lovecraftian theme.
The Kickstarter for Rest in Pieces is fully funded and ends on October 29, 2020.
