The Fiver with Jacob Bunting on Designing Tides of Infamy

Tides of Infamy

Hello, my name is Jacob Bunting. I grew up south of Salt Lake City, Utah but for the last 10 years have called South Carolina Home. I am currently an Engineer in Greenville with Michelin working on a new airless tire called the “Tweel”. I am also an aspiring game designer, father of 3, 2 x cancer survivor and an outdoors enthusiast without the time or energy 🙂

The Fiver with Chris Faulkenberry on Designing Smart Green Heroes

Smart Green heroes

Hi there! This is Chris Faulkenberry, designer of Smart Green Heroes. I’m from North Carolina, designing serious games – that is, games with a real-world application – for Smart Game Systems. I’ve been blessed with the opportunity to turn one of my hobbies into a full-time job. Ever since I was old enough to roll a die, I’ve been an avid gamer, and it’s still something I love to do in my free time. Aside from that, I enjoy playing the violin (or fiddle, depending on what I’m playing on it at the time).

The Fiver with Benjamin Gerber on Designing Swamped

Swamped

Hello! My name is Benjamin Gerber and I’m slightly obsessed with board and card games. I run the multi-author blog Troll in the Corner (trollitc.com), have hosted several podcasts on gaming and am a designer of board and card games. I also dove headfirst into the hobby and have a game collection that’s slowly outgrowing my basement.

I’ve been actively designing games for at least 10 years. I started out with RPGs and have since moved to board and card games.

Kev’s Creatures – KC2 Mountain Orcs at Alternative Armies

KC2

Following up on KC1 Coblynau last month we present the other code in ‘Kevs Creatures’ re-molded and re-released. KC2 Mountain Orcs. Three different hulking 28mm scale Orcs. Pack or three packs with saving or single miniatures. These are superb miniatures and we are getting these out now at the behest of the Oldhammer Facebook Group ahead of the whole OH Goblinoid range in coming weeks. Click through for more.
