The week is coming to an end. Hopefully if you were at Gen Con last weekend, you’ve managed to get back into the “regular swing” of things. Just yesterday I was able to get through the last few lingering e-mails that’d backed up over the week I was away. Now to cruise into a nice weekend of… well, I plan on cooking. Red beans & rice, maybe some Italian beef… I want to make a pumpkin pie with squash mousse as well… We’ll see how much of that I actually get through. Anyone that wants to come over and taste-test is welcome.

Speaking of bite-size morsels, we’ve got a collection of news stories that fit that description as well.

This time around we have: Year Two Collection released at The Ion Age, The Fiver with Joshua Garrett on Designing Random Encounters, New Female elven guardian by Brother Vinni, New Tokens and Templates from Sally 4th and Final Days for Casual Game Insider Magazine on Kickstarter.

The Fiver with Joshua Garrett on Designing Random Encounters

Random Encounters

Hiya, everyone! My name is Joshua Garrett – during the day, I am my city’s media specialist; I produce videos, radio spots, and billboards for different city departments in my hometown of Victoria, TX – a small, but quickly growing city in South Texas. In the evenings and on weekends I am the designer and colorist of Random Encounters, a co-operative role-playing card game that I have been working on with illustrator and great friend Jordan Basaldua.
