Happy Thanksgiving Eve!
Or, for those of you not in the US. Happy Wednesday!
As for me, I’m going to be busy when I get home. I need to bake another pumpkin pie, put turkey 1 into the brine bucket, speed-thaw turkey 2 (place in cold, running water for a couple hours), and make whipped cream for the pies (cream, sugar, and spices). Gonna be very busy, but should be fun. But to have enough energy for that, I need to nosh on some bite-sized gaming stories.

After over 18 months of development, BattleScribe 2.0 is finally here!
This is a major rewrite of the core systems of BattleScribe and it’s data format. It’s aimed at expanding the range of game systems it can support, and ensuring it is capable of keeping up with the ever evolving wargaming scene for years to come.
Almost every line of code in all versions of the app has been rewritten, reorganised, refactored or removed. All major systems have been redesigned and rebuilt.
BattleScribe is reborn, more powerful than ever.
Twisted Brothers Studio is moving fast with the design of 12 Realms: Dungeonland and they have created a PnP version of the game!
This is only a demo of the game, so we do not reveal all its features. In this mini scenario of the game, the four Heroes, Grumpy Dwarf, Red Riding Hood, Wizard of Oz and Snow White, will have to go through the dungeon of the dark tower, from where all the mysterious creatures that have attacked them seem to come from. The demo game has 5 rooms for you to explore and three stages for you to clear, each with a different objective. This is not a full scenario of 12 Realms: Dungeonland. Through this demo you can understand the base mechanics of the game, without spoiling all its glory!
Aliens invade with our latest release: Alien Heads! There are three new sets added to the heads section of the Ramshackle Games web store, Greys, Beast aliens and Bug-Eye aliens.

This set of paper miniatures is the first in a series of characters and terrors designed to provide an exciting game experience for the Ultima Forsan setting for Savage Worlds or any Medieval to Renaissance fantasy adventure. Multiple layers allow for dozens of miniature variations. The bonus material includes a horrifying set of undead to challenge your heroes.

This is one of the first playing card project with a combination of features never seen before on or outside Kickstarter. It includes highest quality card stck 330 gsm German black core with gold foil on tuckbox and card back plus gilding on all cards.
Life just got easier! As a result of the interest in our Comrades in Battle project, we have decided to give our backers an incentive to push the project further. Our stretch goal trigger points have been reduced as follows:
2nd Stretch Goal is now at £5,500 (so we’re within a whisker of releasing this one),
3rd Stretch Goal is now £6,500,
4th Stretch Goal is now £7,500.
Which means that we’ll be able to release the cavalry leader figures much earlier than originally thought. We are also bending our minds to adding another couple of Stretch Goals to keep the project moving and our backers benefitting – watch this space!
After the release of the Alien heads, I have added a new Multi Pack. Now you can get any 4 Ramshackle Games head sets for £15. As usual this comes with free world wide postage included, so thats up to 40 heads delivered to your door for less than 40p each!
NPC For Hire, a 52 card deck of hand draw portraits, is now available on Kickstarter. Artwork for the project was created in collaboration with Cristiana Leone, a phenomenal fantasy portrait artist.
What really makes this project special is the companion app that was developed specifically for these cards. The app lets you randomly generate, create, and save NPC conveniently on an Android or iOS devices. There are a lot of NPC generators our there, but the artwork plus intriguing narratives, feats, and flaws make this one unique.
The card decks are being offered to backers for $20. Early backers will get a free download of the app. More information can be found on the kickstarter campaign page which will run through December 21st.
We are expanding our Temple of Isis Baseset by the following sizes: 32mm, 50mm, 55mm, 60mm and 120mm oval.

“Highway System” is a tabletop strategy game that was inspired by GO & UNO. This game was carefully designed so that each game ends up being a beautiful landscape that is photo worthy.
Recently, tabletop games are more often than not, becoming very complex. From the game rules, to the amount of game pieces require and even down to the graphics. While the rich gaming experiences are often very enjoyable, it often makes a new game very difficult to learn.
“Highway System” is a tile laying tabletop game that aims to be both minimal yet complex at the same time.
Minimal in the sense that it has very simple game rules so it is easy to learn. The tiles are designed with a minimalistic style, making them both functional and aesthetically pleasing at the same time.
The simple game rule allows players to approach the game in multiple angles. This results in a very complex gameplay, almost like chess.
“Highway System” was also designed in a way that the tiles only contains graphics. This allows each round of game ends up looking like a map that the players have co-created. The entire gameplay can then be captured by a single photograph.
Introducing a shiny new regiment to the Galaxy’s Finest; The Rausenburg Siege Corps. These greatcoat troops have already been spotted crewing the upcoming BFG Sledgehammer.
