    I just cut/pasted from an update email.  I've never created (and never will) a KS project.  When I get the email about the launching, I'll put the link here.

    I'll never launch one either. Far too much work. I prefer just enjoying the games, not designing them. Its tough enough writing books in my spare time (what little I have).  Gaming does consume too much of my time.

    fyi - War in Christmas Village news.  "Expansion": "The Gingerbread Gang" coming in for, insert gag here, "Christmas in July".

    In other news...I’ve decided to launch the next Kickstarter for “The Gingerbread Gang” with a Christmas in July theme for #breakkickstarter on July 15th, as we finish up international fulfillment, as well as, the shipment of loose minis.

    I'm intrigued. You will have to post a link when it goes live. I didn't know you were involved in making Kickstarters. That is cool.


  3. Recently got in:

    • Tiny Epic Mechs--read the rules today. Have not played yet.
    • Expedition: the Future--not read the rules. Need to play this new expansion soon.

    Here is my update for Kickstarters I am waiting on:


    • The Isle of Cats
    • Roll Player: Fiends & Familiar Big Box
    • Roam (plus Haven)


    • Awkward Guest (shipping soon)
    • Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood of Venice 
    • Zoo-ography
    • Skulk Hollow (shipping soon)
    • D6: Dungeons, Dudes, Dames, Danger, Dice & Dragons!
    • Bargain Quest & Black Market  (shipping soon)
    • Incoming Transmission
    • Snowdonia
    • Tang Garden
    • Skull Tales: Full Sail! (should arrive any day now)


    • Whelps to Wyrms (Printed but developer ran out of money to ship them. They are sitting in a warehouse somewhere in China.)

    I just got back from playing Lockup: A Roll Player Game.  I liked it better than the Monsters and Minions Roll Player, though it seems stupid to have a roll player game with no dice.  The mechanics are pretty easy, but figuring out the best move is really tricky.  I find that my mind is still reving and I'll need to watch something on TV to be able to go to sleep even though it's about 2.5 hours past my bedtime.

    Wish I had a friend who had the game so I could play it. I need more nearby games who own games. Instead, my friends look for me to buy the games then they play them. Does make for fun gaming days.

    Saw this demo'd (over someone else's shoulder) at Adepticon. It looked pretty lightweight and quick to play.  

    Full disclosure:  Jonathan of Panda Cult Games is the husband of Elizabeth Beckley, studio painter for Kingdom Death and Steamforged and part of Miniature Monthly that I've posted so much about.

    Cute video. I want the game now, but I've reached the end of my budget already. I'm backing Isle of Cats and Roll Player expansion.  Perhaps I will get in in retail later.

    This one was brought to my attention by @Barb Bliss. I could not pass on this game. Hits all the right marks: beloved theme, Tetris-like mechanics, great artwork, cute meeples, both easy "family" version and normal "gamer" version, experienced designer with excellent track record, and good game reviews. Other than price, I can't see any negatives.

    I know @tgpumpkin already backed this game because he is in the comments on the Kickstarter page. I love the interaction of the designer Keith Matejka with the backers. Lots of feedback is invited for new familiars, backstories, race's names. I really like that.  I own both the base game and the other expansion. Both are great. There is an option that to get a Big Box to hold base and both expansion. The Big Box will not be coming to retail.

    What I'm waiting for... my CoCo lol  :):) 

    Should be close now :) 

    Poor you. Sorry you have such a long wait. I've had mine for quite a while now and use them almost every time I play board games at home. Nowadays, its hard for me imaging playing certain games without them.  They help so well with organization. Soon you will have yours.

  9. I've not heard of Shipwreck Arcana. Hope you have fun playing it. 

    I recently got in Expedition: the Horror and Tiny Epic Mechs. I've not gotten around to playing them yet. Also bought Wingspan, which we enjoyed playing. 

    Skull Tales with its many minis is suppose to arrive in the next week or two. Lots of painting in my future.

    What putty did you use to fill the gaps?


    I used Plastic Putty by Vallejo. It made of Acrylic resin. Got it through Amazon, I believe. Someone on a forum recommended it for this purpose.

  11. I've been enjoying my summer. And spending a lot of time working on painting minis. Here is some of my work.

    This is my most challenging piece to date. It came in five pieces. Its the first miniature I had to glue together. Then I had to buy a special putty to fix the cracks. Then I bought 3 metallic paints to use on it. It's become my "Flame and Joy" piece.

    My sister gave me the elf for Christmas. I bought the other two pieces. They look like they belong together.

    I love my portal. Can't wait to use it in a RPG secion.

    I worked a long time on this one, putting more and more shades of green on it. The final results is a monster I don't (and do) want to meet inside a game.

    Ha, I read this and thought I'd missed the announcement for the next Reaper Bones KS.  :) :)

    I have heard much about Too Many Bones. I would love to play the game, to see if I would like to buy it.  It is on the expensive side, but it is suppose to have very high quality production.
