So if you haven't heard yet I'm part of a team making a (non-collectible) card game based very closely on authentic 15th century Italian swordsmanship. It's as real as it gets: a duel played in AUDATIA, our game, would make sense if re-enacted with real steel. Which we do all the time!
The game is done and in extensive playtesting. We ran over 300 demo games at Ropecon last weekend. We need the funds to make the remaining art and to print the game.
The campaign is on IndieGoGo: http://igg.me/at/audatia
We're off to a strong start with close to 40% funded already. Backing us is safe; if we don't raise the whole amount required to finish the game, nobody is charged.
I'm eager to answer all questions! (If you're wondering, this isn't a Bugbear project - it's a hobby for me.)
