Altered Carbon RPG

Renegade Games have announced a new Altered Carbon RPG

 In this transhumanist neo-noir vision of the future, the human mind is nothing more than digital code -Digital Human Freight - saved and stored in a Cortical Stack, advanced technology that allows you to "re-sleeve" your entire consciousness into a new body.

In the Official Altered Carbon Role Playing Game, wear any body you can afford, transmit your mind across the cosmos in an instant, and, if you've got the credits and political cachet, you can re-sleeve time and again for centuries, accumulating enough wealth and power over the millennia to become the societal equivalent of an immortal god.

Included inside the Core Rulebook, you'll find:
• Rules to Play Archetypes ranging from Socialites to Soldiers
• Explore the expansive metropolis Bay City in both its Underground, and Atrium world.
• Storytelling focused rules, that help create immense danger inside of combat and intrigue outside combat.
• The means in which to transfer your characters digital consciousness into a new sleeve should they come to a tragic end.

With the prize of immortality at your fingers, the question is, what price will you pay? What stories will you tell?

Your neon drenched adventures await.

Kickstarter Kickaround

Master Sweets

An easy to learn, fast to play, family card game with 12 game modes – 5 competitive, team, player elimination, 3 cooperative and 2 solo

  •  In "MasterSweets" you will take up the role of one of the 16 fancier confectioners, competing to present the best confectionery delights. MasterSweets uses unique game mechanic based on the set collection mechanic. In the game, a set of ingredient cards are ordered on the table- they form the cookbook. Each row or column of the cookbook represents one recipe. The players will try to collect the full set of ingredient cards that a recipe contains in order to complete it. But each player may also exchange a card from his hand with a card from the cookbook. This way the player changes the set of cards in the collections that all players are trying to collect.
