I was browsing the internet and I found this little tidbit of information on Meetup.com--a call for playtesters for a game I was hoping would expand into an RPG! https://www.meetup.com/Red-Raven-Games-Playtesting/events/256582899/
The announcement name-checks a lot of games that members here would know, play, or have designed.
If you don't know anything about this game, check herehttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Near_and_Farhttps://redravengames.squarespace.com/nearandfar
I am surprised that nobody on BoardGameGeeks.com has posted about this, but you can also read more about the game and its first expansion there as well.https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/195421/near-and-far
Near and Far is my favourite game (present-day-me, not historical-me). The art is beautiful. The game world is charming. The playing materials are luxurious. And the gameplay is fun.
Since this is story-games.com (ie. a site full of story-game designers), I will note that in my opinion they oversell the story-telling aspect of the base game and first expansion, a bit. I see it as more of a CYOA-Euro hybrid game, but even so, it is an excellent game well worth your money (disclosure: I am in no way affiliated with the author/publisher in the past or now). I just love this game!
I just wanted to announce what I had found. If you want to talk about Near and Far send me a PM, or post in this thread (I guess?).
