Comfy Chair Games Kickstarter: Spinespur!

Bob Mervine, "His Exalted Mervinity" to you and me, is the sick genius behind Comfy Chair Games (see their link over there on the sidebar?  ===>

He's also a client of mine.  Full disclosure, and all that.

Well, Bob has launched a Kickstarter for his Heroic Scale game called "Spinespur."

From the Kickstarter text...
Spinespur Is a survival horror miniatures game unlike anything you have seen in the past. This game took 4 years of creation and testing before the rulebook went into print. We wanted to make sure that the game was as tight as we could possibly make it. Another factor in the creation of Spinespur was the play testing. We purposely went on a search for people who had won national and regional championships in other miniatures games and then got these people to play test and break the game so that we could go back and fix the problems they uncovered. As a result, Spinespur probably has the smallest FAQ and errata that you have ever seen in a miniatures game!

 Spinespur was launched in 2007 and received great reviews. Unfortunately, real world incidents put the game on hiatus for a few years. This game has not been sold to another company, Comfy Chair Games is the originator of the game and has kept license to the game from its inception. Now that everything is back to what it should be, Comfy Chair Games is looking to relaunch Spinespur and finish the final few models that need to be made in order to finish the 1st book in the Spinespur series!

You might say, JBR, you're a 15mm sci-fi guy.  What's this 28mm Horror stuff doing on your blog?

To which I'd reply: Well, I'm also a loyal friend, and am trying to do a solid for a buddy.  And, while I'm a 'fraidy-cat when it comes to horror, it appeals to my sick sense of humor.  Here's some source art for your ocular scanners...


And the stretch goals...

So, help push Spinespur over the top, and get funded.

Do it.  Do it for Mr. Jingles' sake. ;)
