Bundle for Two 2 – more 2-player RPGs

by Tuesday 12 February 2019
In February 2019 we presented the Bundle For Two 2, our second Valentine collection of two-player RPGs. Whereas the original February 2017 Bundle for Two included intimate duets ideal for a loving Valentine’s Day experience with your significant other, this new collection featured serial killers, samurai, hack-and-slash dungeons, and Cthulhu. But hey, these could work for some relationships; there must be at least fifty shades of romantic roleplaying. And even if you have other Valentine plans, these games still work fine when you can’t find an entire game group, or you want a game that works well with online virtual tabletops, or you’re just looking for an intense head-to-head gaming experience.

There were three titles in our Starter Collection (retail value $29) as DRM-free .PDF ebooks:
  • Reflections: A Game of Duelling Samurai by Jim McClure (Third Act Publishing, retail price $12): A longtime rivalry between feuding samurai culminates in a final, fatal confrontation.
  • The Quiet Year by Avery Alder (Buried Without Ceremony, retail $8): A highly original map-drawing game from the designer of Monsterhearts about the struggles of a post-apocalyptic community. [Previously in our November 2013 Indie Cornucopia.]
  • Dirty Secrets by Seth Ben-Ezra (Dark Omen Games, retail $9): An amazing story engine that effortlessly creates dark and twisting noir plots. [Previously in our June 2015 Deadly Games offer.]
Our Bonus Collection added three more titles worth an additional $58:
  • Cthulhu Confidential by Robin D. Laws, Chris Spivey, and Ruth Tillman (Pelgrane Press, retail $25): Mythos horror meets hard-boiled noir in this GUMSHOE One-2-One game for a Game Moderator and a lone detective.
  • One on One Adventures Compendium (Expeditious Retreat, retail $18): Eleven Pathfinder fantasy adventures for a GM and one player.
  • The Hour Between Dog and Wolf by Matt Gwinn (Errant Knight Games, retail $15): A flawed hero and a serial killer both confront their darkest impulses.
Ten percent of each payment (after gateway fees) went to this offer’s designated charity, Human Rights Watch.
