Got some more of that industry news for you. In this instance, it’s that Geek Fever Games and DPH Studioz are teaming up.
Yo, ho, ho and a bottle of rum!
Actually, as a teetotaler, I don’t drink rum. So I’ll just have a virgin pina colada. *sips* Ah, refreshing and still takes me to the islands. But when you’re out there, just remember to watch out for pirates. They be swashbucklin’ all over the place, looking for booty. At least, that’s what they’re doing in Dead Man’s Doubloons, a new board game up on Kickstarter now.
Who else here has seen the old Disney movie The Black Hole? It was always one of my favorites growing up. It certainly gave me a healthy fear of falling into a black hole. It’s that fear that also drive you in Avoid the Void, a new board game from Geek Fever Games that’s up on Kickstarter now.
We are the best.
Hello everyone and welcome to Sunday. It’s the start of my favorite week. Thanksgiving is coming up and I simply can’t wait. Sure, you may have your favorite holiday as Halloween or Christmas or Australia Day or whatever, and those are certainly all fine holidays. For me? It’s Thanksgiving. I only wish I had access to a professional kitchen.
But anyway, that’s Thursday. Currently, it’s Sunday. That means a few bite-sized stories to bring to you.
Today’s batch includes: 28mm Fantasy Rock Army On Indiegogo, Khurasan releases 22nd Century Range, Nexus Miniatures Prize Draw Happening Now, Custom Handmade Dice Bags Up On Etsy, and Geek Fever’s Black Friday Crowd Sale is LIVE.
As I mentioned earlier, Thanksgiving’s coming up and that means Christmas Shopping Season is coming up. I expect to be posting various stories along these same lines in the upcoming week and a half. Anyway, this time around it’s Geek Fever Games. Though the sale they’re having is a bit more interactive than most.
Who doesn’t love getting free stuff? I like getting free stuff? I’m sure you like getting free stuff? (Note: I’m not talking about “here, have this 3-day old, half-eaten donut I just found on the floor.” I’m talking about free stuff you actually want). In this case, I’m specifically talking about Plus Word, Holiday-edition from Geek Fever Games. Read on to find out how you can potentially get a copy for free.
Well, we’re making our way through the week. My week has been…
So yeah, we’re making our way through the week. Let’s get you some bite-sized stories that we’ve come across recently.
In today’s batch we have: Warbears and Stagriders Kickstarter Announced, New 20mm Car Conversion Set From Ramshackle Games, Good: The Battle Halloween Special Rules Available Now, Geek Fever Games and Firepeng Games Join Forces, Cul-De-Sac Conquest Heading Through Stretch Goals, Ratgard: Badger Multiple Launch Rocket System Now Available, New Infinity Status Discs from Warsenal, Scotia Grendel New releases, Happy Seppuku Passes Kickstarter Goal, Mr. Maksimov’s Manor coming to Kickstarter in January 2016, and Aquelarre Dark & Mature Medieval RPG On Kickstarter.
A lot of my friends have kids and a lot of those kids are getting to be the age where they’re wanting to get in on mom and/or dad’s gaming hobby. As such, there’s a growing industry of games designed just for those age groups to help usher young players into gaming. Young Wizards is just such a game. It’s a tabletop RPG that’s up on Kickstarter now.
I’ve mentioned before that I love to see a Kickstarter campaign fund successfully and then eventually make it so the products are available to the general public. Geek Fever Games’ Mars vs. Earth card game is one such success story. If you missed out on the original campaign, it is now available through The Game Crafter.
Geek Fever Games has regrouped and relaunched a Kickstarter campaign for Mars Vs. Earth, their card game of global defense and dominance.
From the campaign:
The great pivot! This is a relaunch of a Kickstarter campaign we began earlier in the month – based on feedback received and advertising efforts underway, we decided to “pivot” by altering the structure of the campaign in order to significantly lower the available donation tier price points.
In the original campaign, the donation tier price points were prohibitively high due to built in costs for manufacturing and shipping a final version of the game. We quickly learned that the way the tiers were structured did not resonate with the backer community. Since this campaign’s primary purpose is to raise money to fund the gorgeous professional artwork we desire for the game, this new Plan B campaign has been designed to raise just the funds we need for the artwork, which will be included in an enhanced Print & Play version of the game. Once the artwork has been finalized we will publish this game through one of the popular Print-On-Demand platforms, such as The Game Crafter, allowing anyone to optionally purchase a fully manufactured version of the game.
Mars vs. Earth has existed as a prototype in Print & Play format since 2012. The image above shows most of the game components with the original prototype artwork. Read on to see how we intend to upgrade this game to an otherworldly new level!
