First Run of Mouse Guard RPG Box Set Sells Out, Second Run Available in Time for Holidays

Posted on December 1, 2011 by Flames



Archaia Entertainment announced today the initial run of the MOUSE GUARD ROLEPLAYING GAME BOX SET has sold out at the distributor level (copies may still be available at the retail level), so the company has rushed a second run into circulation to meet the demand for the holidays. In addition, by popular demand, limited sets of the Mouse Guard RPG dice and pawns—which until now had only been a part of the box set—are available for separate purchase exclusively through the Archaia Webstore, said Archaia Publisher Mike Kennedy.

The Mouse Guard Roleplaying Game Box Set ($69.95, ISBN 978-1-936393-17-6) is a deluxe version of the original Mouse Guard Roleplaying Game hardcover book, an award-winning, pen-and-paper RPG that uses Luke Crane’s Burning Wheel system and is lavishly illustrated by Mouse Guard creator David Petersen. In addition to the original rules book, the Box Set contains a 48-page supplement with all-new adventure scenarios and a host of game aids, including a GM deck of 12 Action Cards, two Player Decks of 12 Action Cards, Condition Cards, Characters Sheets, GM sheets, a GM screen, Mouse Dice, Mouse Tokens and a Map of the Mouse Territories. The Box Set was recently awarded the 2011 RPG Golden Geek Award for Best Artwork & Presentation.

“We’re ecstatic that Mouse Guard fans and RPG fans alike have responded so well to the Box Set,” said Kennedy. “And since there is such a high demand for the Mouse Guard Dice and the Pawns, we’ve made those available to fans for purchase exclusively through our online store.”

Fans wishing to purchase extra sets of the Mouse Guard Dice and Pawns can visit the Archaia Store while supplies last. Fans with eReaders can also digital editions of Mouse Guard at
