July 26, 2015: Crowdfunding Focus: Nuclear War 50th Anniversary Edition

Many of us who grew up in the '70s and '80s lived under the shadow of thermonuclear apocalypse. And many of us who were gamers dealt with this tension by playing one of the true classics of tabletop gaming: Flying Buffalo's Nuclear War.

Hard though it is to believe, Nuclear War (the game, not the concept) turns 50 years old in 2015. Rick Loomis, owner of Flying Buffalo, is running a Kickstarter campaign for a new edition of this staple of the tabletop. It is already over 200% funded, and the list of perks all backers receive continues to get longer. As of this post, there are still several open slots to get the sweet super-deluxe edition of the game and its expansions, but we expect they will probably run out well before the Kickstarter itself does.

Support an important piece of gaming history and get yourself a cool new edition of a classic game in the process! (Plus some bumper stickers or T-shirts, if that's your thing.) Here's that Kickstarter page one more time.
