Hmm I have some nephews in the right age range for this.  I'm guessing that's the marketing here: people who had this as kids, who now buy stuff for their kids.

 

Old commercial for nostalgia reasons: (not this kickstarter)

Restoration games is getting a pretty good reputation for not just reprinting old games, but turning them into good modern games in the process. So while I'm sure it's still largely a kids game, it's probably also to a level where the right group of adults would enjoy it beyond just the nostalgia value.

...yeah, I signed on last night. I thought it was just a kids' game back in the day, and by the time I found out how much fun it was, it was upwards of a hundred bucks for a beat up copy on eBay...

I’m in as well. It was a blast when we were 8, and they seem to have made several design improvements that should add playability for the now grown-ups.

 

And yeah, it reached ridiculously Hero Quest-like prices on eBay. But, there really hasn’t ever been anything else quite like it.

Alright, that's playing dirty,  I have the map bird from the original and I have occasionally used pieces and parts to try and play.  Offering a better remake at the same time as I receive an unexpected windfall is just unfair!  Guess I have to back to satisfy the nostalgia itch...

      Another “large collection of miniatures” kickstarters, reminiscent of the recent Blacklist Games Fantasy kickstarters.

      I am tempted, even though it covers a lot of things we already have.

      Pixies, Wyrms, Demonicity – Three Mini Role-Playing Games
       
      Three ready-for-adventure mini-game boxed sets for your RPG game night, featuring the Tri-Stat System used in BESM Fourth Edition RPG.
       

       
      If you're looking for role-playing games that are concise enough to crack open and start playing right away, yet sufficiently robust and evocative to support longer campaign play as well, you've come to the right place.
       
       
      Welcome to the Kickstarter for the first three Tri-Stat System Mini-Game Boxed Sets – a new line of compact and complete role-playing adventure games that are compatible with Dyskami Publishing's flagship BESM Fourth Edition anime and manga RPG. Tri-Stat System creator Mark MacKinnon has distilled and customised the complete system into distinct streamlined versions for each of the three adventure games – targeting their specific genres and background settings in easy-to-understand boxed sets.
       
      Pixies, Wyrms, and Demonicity – it's time for your next great role-playing adventure!
       

       
      Pixies, Wyrms, and Demonicity – These boxed set RPGs are games of adventure, exploration, battle, heroism, romance, and imagination. Yet unlike in a traditional board game, the possibilities for exploration and action in these role-playing game are endless.
       
      Each of the three role-playing adventure games contains the following components:
       
      a 32-page full-colour rulebook that gives your group everything you need to play, with sections on character abilities, magical spells/paranormal powers, weapons and equipment, enemy encounters, items and equipment, and guidelines for integrating the Tri-Stat System game with the compatible BESM Fourth Edition RPG
      6 brief story scenarios so you can start playing adventures right away
      6 pre-generated player character sheet handouts, with game stats and illustration
      4 custom-etched dice specific to that boxed set
       
      You can pledge for one, two, or all three of these boxed sets during the Kickstarter.
       
      ...
       
      I know know nothing about these creators or the system, but I decided to back for Pixies entirely because of that picture of the corgi. 👀
