Shenanigans

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

The Messenger sounds interesting, and Burnout coming to Switch

The Messenger Burnout Paradise

So the one Kickstarter project I was interested in this week, I can’t back. Delivery restrictions – they don’t send to Australia. But an old favourite is also coming to Switch this week. How to choose what to write about?

As the meme says – why not both? The Messenger looks like a brain busting puzzle time, and Burnout Paradise is coming to Switch for driving mayhem!

Last Week’s Gaming – June 1st, 2020

Animal Crossing Shooting Star

Here we are in June. End of Financial Year. The time all of the last minute requests start piling in. It’s going to be an interesting round this year. Last Week, I only really played Animal Crossing on the Switch. Well, video game wise. I did play a few digital board game implementations which was relaxing!

What about you? What have you been playing?

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!
