  • “”It’s a great game. The Elephant and Macaw Banner should well be people’s first RPG. Use this game to introduce people to the hobby; it’ll set them up nicely.” Andrew Gridwood, Geek Native
  • “My parting thoughts are that The Elephant and Macaw Banner is genuinely unique, and while thematically different, there is a familiarity to it. Even if you know nothing about Brazil or world history in the 16th century, this book has everything you need to get you and your group playing while conveying a little bit of factual history at the same time.” Modoc, Rolling Boxcars
  • “This is one of the shiniest things that IPR has.” AC, Indie Press Revolution
