Silver Anniversary Approaching

The 25th anniversary of Legend Quest (and therefore Board Enterprises) is coming up - August of 2016. Seems pretty far away, doesn’t it? Yeah, not so much. The reason it feels closer is that we’ve been thinking through various different ways to celebrate the event. The one that is currently leading the pack is to produce and publish an omnibus edition of the Legend Quest rules. Right now it would be a rule book containing all the information from the Legend Quest rule book (Gold edition), plus Book of Wishes and LQ-Optional Weaponry. While this seems no better than the current Rule Bundle we have available, the books would be edited together, so all the information was sorted in the right order, and you wouldn’t have to flip between books or files to get all the information.

Let me sweeten the pot - It was also to contain notes from the game designer and playtesters, giving strategy advice as well as explaining some of the rules that haven’t been as obvious as we thought they were. So basically, everything, plus a lot of advice.

Right now, what I would love is if someone could email me at and give me some advice on how to use Kickstarter or one of the similar online systems to try and generate some additional funds through pre-sales. We’ve never done anything like that before and would appreciate any advice those who have the experience are willing to offer. I am not yet sure if this is the right way to go, but I think it would be a good social experiment. Plus - If we were to get near some stretch goals, there are a lot of optional rules, additional monster info, and character creation bits that we could throw in to reward those pre-ordering, in addition to getting it two months early.
