Dodoresque: Cherry Blossom Up On Kickstarter

Sometimes, during a Kickstarter, someone will have a suggestion for something and the campaign creators go, "Hmm... not a bad idea." Sometimes, that can be integrated into the current campaign. Sometimes not. In this case, backers for Dodoresque wanted a way to play with more than 2 players. That has lead to the creation of Dodoresque: Cherry Blossom.

Stonemaier Games Short Pre-order Sale for Euphoria

Some may say that ignorance is bliss. Heck, the name of this expansion is that. But being ignorant of the pre-release sale for the new Ignorance is Bliss expansion for Euphoria from Stonemaier Games means you'll not get your game as soon as it's available and you'll spend more money on it. So, maybe in this case, ignorance isn't bliss.

TGN Preview: SkullSplitter Dice Aether Breach Kickstarter Set

You know I love dice. That’s just a given. It’s not an addiction. I can choose to stop any time I want… I just don’t want to stop. I mean, they’re just so pretty. *stares at dice intently* … … …

Anyway, I’m hoping you’ve already seen my review of the first set of Skullsplitter Dice that they were so kind to send to me. If not, I can sum it up like this: I love these dice. Though, I do wish they were purple.

Well… now they have purple.

As part of their Kickstarter campaign, one of the color options is a mixture of Purple and White that they're calling Aether Breach. Once more, they were kind enough to send me a set to check out ahead of time (who said that Vikings were mean? I think that's just propaganda). So, how do these dice hold up? Were they everything I could’ve ever wanted? Let’s find out with another TGN Review. (and if you happen to be listening to Amon Amarth while reading this review, it couldn't hurt)
