Project Ninja Panda Taco Is Coming!

Yep, you read right.  Ninja Panda Taco.

For those of you who don't know, this is a new collaborative story telling game designed by Jenn Steen, host of the Jennisodes podcast.  In PNPT, the players all take the part of mastermind plotting to take over the world, as well as a nemesis who tries to stop the other master minds and minions who just want to help.  But why just listen to me blather on about it?  Here is Jenn herself doing a Q & A a few days before the Kickstarter ended.

And here is a demo that she did with a Google hangout with Lyndsay Peters from Dragon Chow Dice Bags, Liz Bauman from the Illuminerdy blog, and Daniel Solis, designer of the games Do: Pilgrims of the Flying Temple and Happy Birthday, Robot! so you can see just how the game plays out.

Unfotunately the Kickstarter just ended for this game but it was fully funded so it is on the way!  Of course the question is just why exactly am I sharing this now when you can't pledge anymore?  Simple.  Part of the funding was a fully print run of the book, meaning 1000 hardcover, full color books.  As there were about 400 backers, that means that there will still be a good number of this books floating around so you should still be able to get in on the mastermind goodness!

Based on the info on the Kickstarter page, these should be coming out around the end of the year so once there is more information available I'll be sure to pass it along.  Until then, I'd like to wrap this up with a big CONGRATULATIONS!!! to Jenn for publishing her first game!  It sounds like it will be a whole bunch of crazy goodness so I can't wait to get ahold of it and give it a try!

Until next time...
