Cards Review: Tavern Cards Kickstarter

Earlier this year, I backed the Tavern Cards Kickstarter from Hannah Lipsky (Swordgleam of Chaotic Shiny fame). It funded back in mid-February 2013 and I just received my cards at the end of January 2014.

Perhaps you’ve heard of this little company called Modiphius Entertainment who put together a little Kickstarter back in the Spring of 2013 for a RPG series called Achtung! Cthulhu that blew up, met every stretch goal and then some, and was funded at more than 2200% of its original funding goal?
