Updating My Games List

As the end of the year approaches, I thought it would be a good time to update my growing list of game designs. You can see the list HERE. I am closing in on having nearly 15 games and expansions under my belt over my 10-year game design career. If you've played one of my games in the past decade, thanks!

Just a quick look at my plans for 2019: I just finished development for The Captain Is Dead 3 (AEG), and I'll be starting work on designing TCID 4 soon. In addition to a few games being considered by publishers, I am looking forward to a very special adventure game project co-designed with Lance Myxter. Wish us luck!

Hope your 2018 was great and that your 2019 is even better!

Rice Dice

Rice Dice is now on Kickstarter! It's a dice version of Spirits of the Rice Paddy. The campaign is also a chance to reprint the original game. So far, things are going well. Check it out HERE.

My Yearly Blog Update

It seems that my blog publishing schedule has now defaulted to once per year. Sad face. :( Part of this is due to the fact that I can't really talk about a lot of what's going on behind the scenes with specific games. But most of it is that I'm lazy busy. So without further apologies, here is an update on the current state of my board game work.

Topping the list is the near arrival of Black Orchestra, 2nd Ed. Copies will begin flowing out of warehouses and into the hands of unsuspecting Kickstarter backers in a matter of weeks. My advance copy is in the mail as we speak. Meanwhile, because the board game world is truly strange, the Spanish version of the game (Orquesta Negra) has already hit distribution. My Twitter feed is filled with Spanish praise and joy!

Next, my overhaul of the 2011 Kingdom of Solomon will soon be heading to Kickstarter, probably before the summer, under the new-and-improved title, Wisdom of Solomon. We now have a BGG page, so please give some thumbs to the cover image! You can also play the game RIGHT NOW on Tabletopia for free! Please let us know what you think--there is still time to make final tweaks.

 Other upcoming games include: Embark (Tasty Minstrel Games), Spaceways (Daily Magic Games), Spirits of the Rice: The Dice Game (might be called Rice Dice) (APE Games), and The Dark Crystal Card Game (Toy Vault, co-designed with Jason Kotarski). A few more titles are farther out--we'll hear about those next time (hopefully not next February, but you never know).

I'll end by letting you know that I'm also doing some development work for AEG, as well as some art direction! So far, this has been a really cool experience. So look forward to yet one more slick AEG title by the end of the year.
