This morning I discovered I completely missed a Kickstarter for an expansion of a game I really like. It’s a small card expansion (Missions and Powers for Xia), like $18 retail, shouldn’t be hard to get. But I’m like…I thought I was actively following this game’s development! How on earth am I supposed to just keep up with that shit, much less expand my horizons with new stuff?
It made me feel weirdly helpless. Like, one missed email and it probably got sorted into junk by Outlook anyway, and I might not be able to buy it directly from them. Lots of game stuff isn’t even showing up in stores any more.
