A Two Player Roleplaying Game

Badger + Coyote and their Daring Adventures is a cozy, asymmetrical, two-player TTRPG which contains:

  • Beginner-friendly rules to get into mischievous fun
  • 42 total adventure hooks
  • Tips on how to play as a badger or coyote character
  • How to play GMless, two player games
  • Two play styles (Discover and Share)
  • 8 Story Twists to choose from to surprise your friend¬†
  • Based on biologist's research on how this lovable duo interact with the other in the wild
 
Before play, you'll select your character, pick or imagine your adventure, and set your day's goals. 

During play, players take turns narrating the scene, acting on behalf of their character, and working towards their goals while each action fills Badger and Coyote's day with mischief and miscommunication mayhem!



Daring Adventures

Whether they're helping reunite bear cubs with their family, solving the mystery of poisoned birds, or outsmarting poachers threatening their woodland friends, Badger and Coyote prove that with teamwork and quick thinking, any challenge can be overcome.

Their Daring Adventures gives players 42 adventure hooks to launch into their story. While most sessions of Badger + Coyote can be played in an hour, some adventures are ripe for larger, multi-session games.

Use the adventure hooks as-is or customize them to create your own unforgettable tales. With settings ranging from mountain tops with hidden springs to abandoned farms full of conspiracy, there's an adventure for every mood.


Multiple Ways to Play

Adventures can be played two different ways, Share or Discover, depending on if someone wants to lead an adventure for the other to discover, or share the worldbuilding together.

Finally, the book contains story twists you can quietly weave into the story - revealing the twist at just the right time!  Each with memorable names like "I'm The Problem, It's Me", and "The Dream We Share". 

Badger and Coyote may find themselves in a fishy situation from time to time

Pandion Games is a game design studio nestled in the southern Blue Ridge Mountains that makes nostalgic collaborative games. Founded in 2021 by Andy Boyd, Pandion Games has published eight games to date.

  • Storyteller: A Campfire Narrative Game, has players reignite telling ghost stories around the campfire with whatever equipment you have on hand.
  • Monsters & Counselors, whisks players away to summer camp as counselors, saving their campers from themselves and the dangers that lurk.
  • Banda's Grove, envisions campgrounds converging from across the universe to form Banda's Grove and all the wonderful and strange mysteries that ensue.
  • Whispers in the Walls is a solo game of a private detective with the unique ability to understand what the walls remember.
  • Substratum puts players in exosuits to delve to the center of the earth to close the portal consuming earth's core.
  • Waffles for Esther is a solo mystery game of small-town hijinks as players discover what happened to their favorite diner regular: Esther.
  • The Jester King's Dance, Where the player follows a wretched soul who awoke in hell and must rediscover his evil deeds.
  • And the original version of Badger + Coyote, the cozy Sunday afternoon duet game. Thanks to all our supporters, we can create this deluxe and expanded edition!

In January 2023, Pandion Games successfully crowdfunded and fulfilled The Dungeon Year Journal, a 365-entry writing and design journal as part of the Dungeon 23 one-a-day challenge.

Andy Boyd is the owner and game designer behind Pandion Games. He has a love for old summer camp nostalgia, and the outdoors in general. Growing up, he spent many hours playing point and click adventures games and is where his love of storytelling grew. His games draw inspiration from some of his favorite shows and games such as Gravity Falls, Outer Wilds, Grim Fandango, The Longest Journey, Psychonauts, Over the Garden Wall, and Hilda to name a few.  Andy loves finding just the right mechanics to pair with the different types of stories each of his games explore.

The first book Andy ever published - Storyteller will always hold a special place in his heart.

Shipping will be charged separately
The estimated cost will fluctuate based upon your pledge level. Below are estimated ranges based on the different tiers we have available. Some add-ons, such as additional game books, may increase shipping beyond these estimates.

  • US: $5-$12
  • CA: $12-$16
  • Rest of World: $16-$20

International Shipping
We ship internationally. However, individuals are responsible for VAT and import taxes for their individual countries. The games are manufactured in, and ships from, the United States. Pandion Games does not collect, remit, or reimburse for incurred VAT or import taxes.

When will you ship the games?
The writing and design is complete, and proof prints are in! We are ready to submit the books to the printers, and orders to our suppliers for the travel kits. Turn around should be quick. We expect to begin shipping to backers about 30-45 days after the campaign wraps up! 
Edit

This campaign is to raise funds to bring Badger + Coyote and their Daring Adventures to life. We work very hard to reduce the risks of publishing and fulfillment.

For the game itself, the writing and layout is complete, and we have proof prints for everything in hand, so we can be ready to get you your books as soon as the campaign wraps up.

We operate our own store and have fulfilled a crowdfunding campaign before, so we feel confident we can provide a quick turn around fulfilling this campaign, and we have packaging and shipping planned and organized for this campaign.

In the event that the campaign does extremely well, we have relationships with fulfillment partners, and will reach out to them immediately if it looks like the campaign will go beyond what we're able to fulfill in a reasonable time.

We purposefully have not created any physical stretch goals to keep the complexity of the campaign to a minimum and not delay fulfilling the game.
