I held off getting Harvesters by Troll Lord Games when it came out last spring, but just ordered it since it’s on sale for half price ($9.00 instead of $18.00: link). The reviews on DriveThruRPG are very positive (check ‘em out) and it sounds like a great game to run with kids. Judging from what I’ve read, it’s basically Castles & Crusades with animals, which is a-okay in my book. No need to reinvent the wheel.
I’m still not sure if my six-year-old is ready for RPGs, but we’ll see. She absolutely loves animals, so this is right up her alley. When asked to bring in her favorite book to school, she took in Mouse Guard and she already wrote her own Cat Guard version. I think we might have a winner here.
