The Lone Wolf Adventure Game - In US stores Today!

Post by Andrew » Wed Sep 30, 2015 2:07 pm

The Lone Wolf Adventure Game is in all good US gaming stores today! It will be available in stores worldwide soon.

The Lone Wolf Adventure Game is our brand-new introductory fantasy roleplaying game, and it's not only an incredible bargain for just $30, but the perfect entry point into our hobby.

But what were we thinking, offering such a fantastic boxed set for such a low price? Well, we asked the boss, Dominic McDowall, just that...

Dom: "Both new gamers and brick and mortar stores are the lifeblood of our hobby. I took a long, hard look at what was available for new gamers, and saw a gap in the market. We resolved to develop something with both extremely high production values and a low price point. Something recognisable as a game of quality, that store owners could hand to interested potential gamers and they could use it themselves, without help, to become RPGers.

"Roleplaying games are something I've enjoyed all my life, and I started that journey with Joe Dever's Lone Wolf. When Joe approached us about licensing his multimillion-selling world I jumped at the chance. It was a perfect fit for our beginner box plans.

“The final piece of the puzzle was Kickstarter. Whilst it can have an awkward relationship with some store owners who feel crowd funding is cutting them out of the deal, I knew there had to be a way to use that crowd funding to bring them something of real value that we wouldn't be able to be do otherwise. We are strongly committed to gaming stores, and I want us to all win.

"And so we reached out to the Lone Wolf fans, and asked for their help to create a new generation of gamers. And they answered the call. We were bowled over by their support, and everyone here at Cubicle 7 is extremely proud of what we've made, and the price point we've been able to offer it at. The Lone Wolf Adventure Game is packed with great components, makes new gamers and costs just $30.”

The Lone Wolf Adventure Game is in US stores from today! You can buy the PDF version now.

Great post Andrew and nice to get such a clearly laid out reasons as to Dom's strategy. I completely agree with it and think it's great that the KS backers got a great deal in their own right but also helped fund the ability for C7 to publish an introductory set with such great content and high production values at such a relatively low price point.

As an aside I really do hope it gets some significant industry recognition, maybe picking up at least some nomination if not actual award wins, for what it's trying to do with regards to accessibility, in a time when core rulebooks can number up to 300 pages or more of rules, and growing the user base of our small hobby by creating such a cool and accessible product. The fact that it's attached to such an awesome British fantasy IP like Lone Wolf is a massive bonus! :D
