Hi there. As you may know, Joshua A.C. Newman (of shock: fame) is Kickstarting a new game, The Bloody Handed Name of Bronze. The game was originally released as a 16-page zine, now available as a preview of a much larger book.
Has anyone played this game yet? I love the thematic focus, the possibility for collaborative worldbuilding inherent in the Names rules, the possibility of a very short 2-player game you can play over a lunch break, and I think the “Well of Names” is just killer. I wish every game came with a mystic name generator. I am also really intrigued by how the two ‘classes’ of the game are built to offer each other aid while also putting each other into risky situations.
With that being said, there are virtually no actual plays online, and the extreme density of the text makes it difficult for me to see how it works when it hits the table (not that I mind, I actually kinda enjoy how the voice contributes to the sense of the zine as an ancient artifact). Anyone have experiences with the game they’d like to share?
