I confess that I only played Tunnels and Trolls a few times back in high school, and that was it. I wouldn’t describe myself as a “fan” of the game, but not through any fault of the game itself so much as my own preoccupation with Dungeons and Dragons as our go-to fantasy game at the time. But it is undeniably one of the seminal publications in RPG history, one that has never gone out of print to my knowledge, and I would be remiss if I didn’t mention that the Kickstarter for the Deluxe edition is now live, and has already hit about 15% of its goal. The deluxe version features gorgeous production values, a full-color map of Trollworld, and tons of extra material. Definitely worth a look-see and the fine folks at Flying Buffalo have such an impeccable track record that I’m probably going to be supporting this just on the face of it.
