Stuff and Nonsense is a new (to you at least…probably) game coming from Cheapass Games and the latest installment in our never-ending quest to keep our readers up to date on some of our favorite gaming related KickStarters out there.
Stuff and Nonsense is a card game where the players take on the role of members of the Original London Adventurer’s Club as they gather trinkets and evidence of their nonexistent adventures. That’s right, the game is “an adventure game with no real adventuring.” Each player sneaks around London gathering evidence of their fake adventures to bring back to the club and use as proof of their adventures. There’s a catch though as this isn’t even an original idea. You stole the idea from Professor Elemental (incidentally Professor Elemental is a ‘real’ person and you can learn all about him here at his website) who is on to you and trying to catch you redhanded!
There is plenty more information on the game on the KickStarter site and you can even download a beta version of the rules for free to get an idea of how gameplay works. There are also perks for backing the KickStarter now as opposed to simply buying the game when it comes out like a personalized postcard from Professor Elemental and six KickStarter only bonus cards for the game. On top of that there are some interesting add-ons like a set of Meeple that to be used with the game, sets of Professor Elemental versions of the Cheapass card game Pairs, Unexploded Cow and the possibility of opening up others via Stretch Goals. In particular the card game Give me the Brain looks like it would be a great game to play.
