Matt Forbeck’s Dangerous Games Novels Kickstarter

Posted on May 19, 2012 by mforbeck

The Dangerous Games Trilogy

Once a year, the greatest tabletop gamers in the world descend upon Indianapolis for Gen Con, the Best Four Days in Gaming, to play games, see friends, and have fun. They play things like D&D, Magic: The Gathering, Warhammer 40,000, Settlers of Catan, Munchkin, and everything else they can get their hands on. Mostly the competition is friendly.

Sometimes it is not.

When a world-famous game designer turns up murdered at the convention, a group of gamers makes it their quest to figure out who killed him, and why. As they dig deeper, they start to question everything they thought they knew about the man: who he is, why someone hated him enough to kill him — and if he’s really dead. In the end, they must figure out who’s playing whom or risk not only losing this most dangerous game but their lives.

12 for ’12

This is the third part of my 12 for ’12 project, a year-long challenge in which I plan to write a novel* every month in 2012. I’ve broken 12 for ’12 up into four trilogies, and this Kickstarter project represents the third of them. I’ve already used Kickstarter to fund the first two trilogies: the Matt Forbeck’s Brave New World Trilogy and the Shotguns & Sorcery Trilogy.

The drives for the first two trilogies raised over $12,000 each. Here’s hoping the Dangerous Games Trilogy can beat them.
