Inviting you all to check it out and, if you want to, support it! Reflections, a 2-player samurai game, by Third Act Publishing which was inspired by my tiny game, A Single Moment. And yes, I'm co-designing this new evolution! https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/496783700/reflections-a-game-of-dueling-samurai?token=a5c36fbf
Reflections is a roleplaying game telling the story of how two samurai come to their final duel.
