The Night Cage is an award-winning board game I designed with my buddies Chris McMahon and Chris Chan, published by Smirk & Laughter Games. You can grab a copy at Barnes&Noble.
Below is our Kickstarter trailer, which gives a good overview of the game's setting and gameplay.
Beyond getting to create something we're very (VERY) passionate about, The Night Cage has also been a huge business success for us. After funding in just 90 minutes, our Kickstarter campaign went on to earn a total of $220,628 from over 4200 backers. That puts our campaign in the top .8% for funding and the top .4% for backers across all projects on the platform. Once backers had their copies, the game went to retail. And after only a year on the shelves, we're already on our 4th print run (and setting up the 5th). 
Kickstarter also selected us as a"Project We Love" and made us a Featured Project on the front page of the games category.
If you're interested in learning to play, you can visit our interactive tutorial here.

Here are a few reviews and play-throughs, as well as a couple of interviews we did to promote the game.
One fan even developed a browser version and posted it to GitHub, 
which honestly is pretty flattering.
