  1. Favorite Dogmight Product

    Since I don't really play tabletop RPGs with minis anymore, a lot of your products designed to hold minis are out for me. Favorite for me as a board game fiend is the CoCo, and when I get it I will show you just how excited I am.
  2. One Shot RPG Ideas

    Following up here: I want to know how this went!? Did your new apprentices enjoy it and level up to seasoned gamer level?
  3. Pictures of DMG products at home.

    I'm so glad this thread exists. When I get my CoCos, I will post so many pics.
  4. On the lookout for awesome new games

    I mentioned Numenera (a tabletop RPG) in a previous post. Looks like Monte Cook Games are giving it an overhaul, and is being launched on Kickstarter:
  5. New Kickstarter soon....

    Ah. I play a lot of RPGs now that don't require tactical play mats.
  6. New Kickstarter soon....

    I've never really been a fan of dice towers. They look cool and everything, but I like the feel of rolling them myself rather then feeling like I'm inserting dice into machine which then spits out a result. Same reason I refuse to use digital dice rollers on my phone.
  7. On the lookout for awesome new games

    Seconding everything Ian has said. I've been watching Tabletop since the beginning, and quite a lot of those games have made it into my collection. The vast majority of the titles they play are fantastic gateway games for new board game players, and they do a good job showing a variety of game styles. I had Codenames before they played it on Tabletop, and it's a wonderful group game, breaking the mold of "impress the judge" party games. Some games I just picked up that are fairly recent releases and light-but-good are Sagrada (where you build stained glass windows using a grid and dice) and Century: Spice Road (a game about trading spices). My FLGS has also found great success with Clank! (a deckbuilding adventurey game).
  8. Our Game Rooms

    Towers of Ruin isn't the name of the game. It's Thunderstone: Advance, a remake of the original Thunderstone. Towers of Ruin is basically a subtitle, and there are expansions with similar names. It's a deckbuilder, and pretty cool.
  9. Our Game Rooms

    @Serge Darveau That's impressive. I have in fact been to the walled town of Carcassonne, and it was beautiful.
  10. Our Game Rooms

    Meet Teridan Cerydian, Master of Games and Entertainment! I play in a boffer medieval fantasy LARP (Live Action RolePlaying game). I decided that rather then make a heroic hero of heroism, I was going to essentially create a town personality character. In most RPG video games these days, like Fable or The Witcher, there is a unique minigame to that world for the player to play or gamble in. As an avid board gamer, I decided to create just that. Someone usually has a chess board or a deck of standard playing cards at a LARP. I wanted to bring something truly unique, and insert some of our favorite games into a fantasy world as if they belonged there. This is the setup I am really proud of. All of the games i bring to LARP are either made of wood, or can pass as "close enough" to an authentic material. My criteria is that 1) Can be played in 20 minutes or less, 2) I can teach in 5 minutes or less, and 3) aesthetically fit in our world. I have brought this character to 2 LARPs and 1 Dagorhir event, and everyone who has seen it goes "this is the most unique idea I've seen in years, and we WANT IT." As you can see, the reason I backed the CoCos (and now a Dice Sleeve) is because it enhances my LARP setup, making it even more amazing then it already is.
  11. Our Game Rooms

    I thought people might like to share pics of what there home game room looks like, and to display their collections. Or perhaps those of you who already have Dog Might productions would care to show their creations in action at game night. Sadly, my setup is a single shelf of games (though I got some BitBoxes that are holding a significant portion of my collection, perfect for a small apartment). This is a picture of a portion of it, I have a bunch more. In my next post, however, you'll see what I'm truly proud of.
  12. New Kickstarter soon....

    Could an individual sleeve be fitted with the magnets? I don't know if I can go full tilt and get a bone box, but I'd enjoy a sleeve that's compatible with the CoCo
  13. CoCo Configurations

    Benge is, in my opinion the best middle-of-the-road wood option out of everything. It's a dark, rich color that looks great with the grain, and is still pretty affordable. That's why both of mine use it.
  14. CoCo Configurations

    Well, it's done. DONE. I wound up getting 2. I wanted to keep myself at 1 but after the addition of the L tile that proved impossible. I wanted to get at least 1 of everything, and have a few to pass out to players. So I present to you my final configurations, both in Benge wood so I could mix them and not have to bring them ALL every time: "The P&P" (Player & Party) Collector: 5x Double tiles to pass out to players for simple storage options, and Deck, Reverse Deck, and Slots for light card games that play lots of people, or even games for standard decks of cards like Rummy. Or even...UNO. "The Swiss Bank" Collector: Quad, Card, Dragon, Square, Bowl, Bowl, Dual, L. Perfect as communal bank tiles for any Euro game, and a few I intend to use for a personal station. When these finally arrive, I will be sure to take many pictures, both of me using them at home and in my game store, as well as part of my setup at my medieval LARP casino table! It's gonna be a hit there.
  15. CoCo Configurations

    Ironically, I have little interest in getting a design in the squares. Since I also intend to use these at my medieval fantasy LARP, the dragon would be cool, but since I'm now getting 5 doubles instead of squares, I think I'm just gonna stay generic.
