Dance Card! Board Game Up On Kickstarter

In what should be a surprise to absolutely nobody, I was a bit reclusive and very nerdy back in high school. I never even considered going to any sort of dance. And since those days are far, far, far behind me, the only way I could experience that sort of thing now (without being extremely creepy about it by just showing up at one) would be to play a game like Dance Card! from Cardboard Console. The game is up on Kickstarter now.

Zafir RPG Up On Kickstarter

Many RPGs take shortcuts when it comes to combat. At the very least, it tends to put things in 2 dimension and just kinda doesn't do much with elevation.
