Everything is Dolphins RPG
Everything is Dolphins is an RPG and art book by Tim Hutchings. This incredible, off-kilter, amazingly inventive game is hard to describe, but when the game's creators call it an "RPG hovering somewhere between side scroller video game, talking animal fairy tale, and triptastic fun," we find we're inclined to agree.
Ca$h 'n Guns
Ca$h 'N Guns plays out like the gory end to a gangster movie. Players are all crooks splitting up the loot after a big heist, and the goal is to be the one with the most money at the end of eight rounds. Oh... and, also to still be alive at the end of eight rounds... that's important (and harder than it sounds) too.
