Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving! I hope you are spending the day with friends and family. I am thankful to God for His mercy and forgiveness, and for the wonderful family He has given me. I'm also thankful that I get to be involved in such an amazing industry--playing and making board games!

Princess Bride Card Games

Just wanted to mention my Miracle Pill card game is now on Kickstarter with two other Princess Bride card games from some of my designer buds. The goal was $100 and it will run for 10 days only, so it's a smaller campaign. There are currently 6 days left and we are at about $7K. Here's a bit of game info:

Designed by Philip duBarry, two to six players attempt to capture a little magic in the form of a not-so-little pill that will hopefully bring the Man In Black back to life! You'll need to create the perfect mix of ingredients by choosing cards from your hand to create groups of different types. Each round involves drafting cards and revealing them all at the same time, building up your ingredients that will eventually combine together, but remember to follow any immediate instructions that are revealed! In the third and final round you'll add scoring cards to your tableau, making those collections of yours finally pay off! Just remember to cover the finished article in chocolate; we hear that helps when swallowing the pill...

Catching Up

Just to recap, Skyway Robbery was successfully funded in the last few minutes! Very exciting--see this update for more details. Here is the funding chart:

It's been a while since I've written a post. I've been working on several new designs behind the scenes. In the meantime, I still have a few more Kickstarters coming very soon. Right now, it looks like Eminent Domain: Battlecruisers will be launching in just a few weeks. Spirits of the Rice Paddy will also be launching soon, but we'll have to see how it all comes together.

Finally, in other news, Revolution!: Anarchy is available for purchase! Check out this review from Tom Vasel.
