Shenanigans

Pretty much everything I get up to, short of the formal reviews.

Blood Rage Digital comes to life Tomorrow!

Blood Rage Digital Edition

Normally on Wednesdays I like to talk about Kickstarters that make me excited. This week, unfortuntely, none have quite done that. A few made me smile, but nothing to rave about.

Tomorrow though, the Kickstarted board game Blood Rage launches for retail the Kickstarted Blood Rage Digital. That counts, right?

Stop the Train! Social Deduction on Kickstarter

Stop the Train Box Art

I love social deduction games, but they tend to fall into one of two categories. The first, quick gameplay but hard to invest in and quick to solve. The other are immersive, but long and sometimes overly complicated. Stop the Train! from Escape Plan! (so many !’s) is on Kickstarter now, and looks to merge the two categories into a game I am keen to play.

Last Week’s Gaming – May 18th, 2020

Animal Crossing Lounge Room

This week just flew by! In a bit of a reversal, Last Week’s Gaming this week was a few digital board games, rather than mostly ‘Video’ games.

That felt good, and I grabbed a couple more to try and keep this pattern moving. Finally started moving those board game challenge counts again!

Roll & Play: The Game Master’s Tabletop Toolkit

Roll & Play Cover Concept Art

When you are starting to create your first role play campaign, your players will always run off in a direction you never thought of. That means as the Storyteller/Games Master/Dungeon Master, you have to come up with a lot of on the spot information. Sometimes, that works. Usually, you get into a campaign breaking situation.

Roll & Play: The Game Master’s Tabletop Toolkit, will be great for building campaigns and tweaking random situations on the fly. And it’s now available on Kickstarter.

Last Week’s Gaming – May 11th, 2020

Sleeping Dogs Tactical Uniform

So, I am taking a couple of long weekends. Long work days and no downtime has left me run ragged. This hasn’t helped me play a lot in last weeks gaming, but I did discover a game from the PS3/Xbox 360 era thanks to a friends Twitch stream.

How are you doing? Hopefully all is going well, and you have gotten in more gaming than I have. Tell me what you have been playing!

Pulp Invasion is live now on Kickstarter

I enjoy catching up with friends over board games. Sometimes I really want to play a game, but no other players. Alpal said that I would enjoy Pulp Detective, but the genre misses a lot for me.

Classic Science Fiction adventure though, that’s another story!

Last Week’s Gaming – April 27th, 2020

Animal Crossing - Art Wing Opening

Another slow week in terms of quantity of games, but I have really enjoyed the quality of the games I did play! Setup a Discord server for my games group this week, and that seems to be running well. Let’s see how it handles a few more people this week!

That’s next week though. This is Last Week’s Gaming. How about you? What have you been playing?

Van Ryder Games new solo game Final Girl now on Kickstarter

Final Girl Cover

So I was looking for games I am excited about coming out on Kickstarter. Frosthaven, Ankh, there are plenty of high profile games that want you to give them your money. But Van Ryder Games snuck under my radar again with the new implementation of a great solo game system.

Final Girl is my April Kickstarter, and I wish I could explain why better!
