Middle school is a trying time, and one that is rife for exploration via roleplay. Having met the 9th Level Games team myself, after a long love affair with their game Kobolds Ate My Baby, I am glad to see them branching out into this area with their new project: Traged13s of Middle School. Read below to learn more about the campaign, which launched today (October 30th, 2017) and takes some intriguing chances in the realm of game design.
9th Level Games, makers of the Kobolds Ate My Baby series, have launched their latest Kickstarter campaign for THE TRAGED13S OF MIDDLE SCHOOL an anthology of tabletop role-playing games, story games, live action games, and other strangeness inspired by the greatest HORROR of all… junior high.
Each game in The Tragedies of Middle School centers around a nostalgic junior high activity – spin the bottle, Truth or Dare, passing notes, Bloody Mary, school dances, friendship bracelets, etc. The PG-13 horror vibe running throughout represent the fear, awkwardness, and angst of being a thirteen-year-old.
The Tragedies of Middle School features games and activities from 20 designers from a diverse mix of backgrounds, even a few current middle school game designers.
