Midweek Snippets

The work week rolls on. I'm once more in my Wednesday attire (Kansas State Baseball practice jersey over SIUE t-shirt), which is appropriate, seeing as it is Wednesday. With any luck, your week is going by nicely. Here at the office we're looking to play some Age of Sigmar this afternoon. It'll be our first time playing. Don't worry, we'll let you know how it went later in the week.

But at the moment, we've got a batch of bite-sized stories to give you.

This bundle includes: Age of Sigmar Points Calculator & Patch from One Page Rules, some more installments of The Fiver from The Meeple Mechanic, Abyssal Dwarves and Vampire Counts added to Army Throne from Warthrone, New miniature by Brother Vinni: "Project Limes" Commander, Another World Indiegogo campaign: Stretch Goal Unlocked, War Mage Games to launch their Tournament & Transport Solution this week, Cibo's Little Dudes Historical Miniatures, Interdimensional horrors invade Meridian Miniatures, Ancient Machinery 30mm and 40mm Round-Lip Bases Available from Tabletop-Art, Titan-forge new Ghostbikes, Celestial Knight preorder from Kabuki Models, and Syrinscape Now Compatible with iPhone and Android Phone.

Age of Sigmar Points Calculator & Patch from One Page Rules

One Page Rules

Even though we originally said we weren’t going to, we still couldn’t resist it… so we tried to come up with a simple way to calculate point costs in Age of Sigmar.

The system we came up with is not 100% perfect, but should make for some fairly balanced games. It serves more as a solid basis from which to start, and then you can tweak units that are clearly unbalanced.

Give it a try.

On top of that today we are updating Page of Sigmar to v0.5, fixing some typos and clarifying a couple of things that needed some more definition.

The Fiver with Joshua Buergel on Designing Hocus


Hello! My name is Joshua Buergel. By day, I’m a software developer at a small company, and by night, I’m a tabletop game obsessive. I’ve been playing hobby games, starting with D&D, for about the last 33 years. I’ve been designing off and on for about the last 12 or so, but this year is the first that I’ve made a big push getting those games out to people. When I’m not gaming, I’m thinking about gaming, and when I’m not doing that, I’m chasing around three small children.

The Fiver with Daniel Isom on Designing STAC


Hello! My name is Daniel Isom and I’m an alcoh…oh wait wrong place. Let’s try that again. Hello! My name is Daniel Isom and I’m the designer of STAC and the founder of Simple Design Publishing.

I currently live in Delaware with my wife and two kids; one of which was born almost exactly 1 week to the hour prior to STAC’s Kickstarter launch date. Yes, I was stupid…I mean brave enough to run a campaign with a newborn and a two-year-old running around. When I’m not designing games or flooding my social media feeds with advertisements for my designs, I’m either spending time with my family or cooking up a new dish in the kitchen. I even used to write two separate food blogs for a while.

The Fiver with Brian Suhre on Designing Paradox


Hello, My name is Brian Suhre, and I’m the designer of Paradox. I live in Illinois with my wife and two kids. I spend most my days fiddling around with game design and chauffeuring my kids from one location to another.

The Fiver with Cheese Block Games on Designing Cargo: Dead in the Water


Hey, everyone, we’re Chad and David of Cheese Block Games. We live in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada. In our day jobs Chad is an elementary school teacher and David has a marketing and branding company. When not working we like to spend most of our time playing board games or watching sports.

We wouldn’t really call it a career, but we’ve been working on our current game Cargo: Dead in the Water for over a year and a half now. It’s been a pretty long road, but we’re pretty happy with how the game turned out and how much we’ve learned about designing board games.

Abyssal Dwarves and Vampire Counts added to Army Throne from Warthrone


Warthrone approved army lists are unofficial lists created by fans, that have been submitted to AoW, and have been reviewed, tested and approved to be used against any of the other approved lists (official and unofficial) for Warthrone.

These lists can be an adaptation of existing armies from other games, or completely invented armies, I will welcome all submissions!

WarMage Games to launch their Tournament & Transport Solution for X-Wing, STAW and D&D AW this week

Carrying Case

When at a tournament or playing a game of X-Wing or Star Trek / D&D Attack Wing with friends, we all know what happens when people use the slippery plastic trays from fast food restaurants.

We created a solution for this, our Tournament Tray.
In addition, we also created the modular Transport Solution, incorporating the Tournament Tray into a system with which you can easily carry all your space ships, tokens, cards, maneuver wheels and everything else to the game venue safely and in style.

Everything is organized and quick to set up. Be ready and relax while the others still pick up their pieces from the floor.
