Expanding Pugmire

The Pugmire game is a great example of a light-hearted concept that still leads to dramatic game play. While I’m still waiting to run a full campaign of it (despite having Molly ready and waiting), I’ve been enjoying the actual play videos from No Survivors over at Geek & Sundry. I’m also excited about the Monarchies of Mau Kickstarter, even though it’s about freakin’ cats.
