Those gamers that have known me for a long time, also know that one of my all-time favorite RPGs is Traveller (read my opinion about it here — link >>> ), a space-faring game in the far future, where you take the roles of interstellar traders, spies, rogues and explorers. Its creator Marc Miller has spent the last decade or so refreshing its cosmos, among other things by writing a good novel about exploration, hazards and politics in the human-dominated Third Imperium: Agent of the Imperium (you find it here — link >>> ).
Marc has now licensed a Traveller customizable card game, which just has been launched on Kickstarter (check the project here — link >>> ). I think this is a cool project, and the game’s solo-player option makes it even more interesting, at least to me.
