Press Release: Fire in the Library is on Kickstarter Now!

If there's one thing my family has a lot of, besides games, it's books.  Nearly every open wall in our house is lined with book shelves.  Some have games on them, but most have books.  Our friends say we're like our own little library.  One of our greatest fears is a fire in the house.  How would we choose which books to save?  They're all precious!

Well, in Fire in the Library our worst fears are turned into a game.  That's great, because I wouldn't want to have to rescue burning books in any other way.  You can learn more about Fire in the Library below, or check it out on Kickstarter today!

Fire in the Library is on Kickstarter Now!

Carla and Nick Kopp of Weird Giraffe Games, creators of Super Hack Override and Stellar Leap are back with their next project, Fire in the Library!  The Kickstarter will close on April 12th, so make sure to check it out before that! 
Many different groups of play testers, including other game designers, all agree that Fire In The Library is a great experience. The Kickstarter campaign will feature the game at $19, plus shipping with $5 US shipping, $10 Canada, Australia and EU Friendly shipping, and $15 shipping to the rest of the world. 
About the game:
Fire in the Library is a press-your-luck game from Weird Giraffe Games by Tony Miller and John Prather with art by Beth Sobel and Katie Khau. 

Players use shear bravery and some nifty tools to dash into a burning library to become known throughout the world as the librarian that saved the most knowledge. Each round Players decide when to play it save for guaranteed points or risk it all to try to save more books. Players must choose the best moment to use their tools as no one can anticipate when the library will collapse and end the game immediately. 

Easy to Learn: Simple enough for kids to play and enjoy, with depth and strategy that will keep serious gamers coming back. 
Increasing Intensity: Books increase in value all the way until the end but no one knows who will take the last turn. Players must decide if they should save tools for an epic late game point swing or grab points now to take an early lead. 
AI Variants: Experience the excitement of Fire in the Library on your own with the solo game or spice up a multi-player match by adding new challengers.

History is burning—Take chances, Be brave, SAVE BOOKS!

What they are saying about Fire In The Library:
“If you don’t like press your luck games, it is only because you have never played Fire in the Library. It is simple and yet strategic, quick and yet full of depth.”                                                       
"Fire in the Library has just the right blend of theme, luck mitigation, and tension in it to make me reconsider this type of game. With the ability to play up to six players and the short length it takes to play, this is a fun little gem that I have played with several different groups of people, and they have all asked to immediately play it again.”                         

"The solitaire mode shows off just how strategic the gameplay in Fire in the Library can be. Based on my experience, I wouldn't be surprised if Fire in the Library sets Kickstarter on fire!” 

"Fire in the Library is a tight, fun game that only gets better with more players. The theme really resonates with the pushyour-luck mechanics and as a librarian I can totally confirm that its 100% realistic. Save the books!“ 
-    Gameosity  
“Fire in the Library is a solid game and very well polished. Setup is quick, start to finish is about 30 minutes and it can be played solo or with up to six players. If this game was being released by a major publisher, I have no doubt it would be a trending topic in gaming circles as a must-have title. Don't let the fact it's a smaller publisher deter you from wanting to get this into your game library.”

"Many problems I've encountered with press-your-luck games is they tend to carry little or no strategy. Thankfully Fire in the Library provides a great balance of luck and strategy, making it a great filler game for both new and seasoned gamers."
