From the company that brought you Shroedinger's Cats, it's Pavlov's Dogs (anyone want to be their next game will be Darwin's Finches?). It's a new party game where players take on the role of pooches that are trying to complete different tests brought about by famous dogtors of old (not a typo). How fast are your reflexes? How good is your memory? You'll find out when playing Pavlov's Dogs. The game is up on Kickstarter now.
From the campaign:
Pavlov’s Dogs is a fast, engaging card game of following the rules and acting like fools! This cooperative psychological brain buster will test your memory and conditioning. You’ll be drooling for more!
Play as dogs taking tests from esteemed DOGTORS like Sigmund Fetch, Abby Maslow, and Collie Jung!
Dr. Ivan Pavlov introduced the concept of classical conditioning through his experiments with dogs. Pavlov’s theory was that a learned procedure pairs a stimulus with a conditioned response. Pavlov would ring a BELL and then give dogs food. After the dogs had been conditioned to this procedure, anytime Doctor Pavlov would ring a BELL the dogs would salivate in anticipation of getting food.
GAMES are all about a STIMULUS and a RESPONSE so why not play a game that IS about Classical Conditioning?! With Pavlov’s Dogs you can try your hand at conditioning your friends, family, and yourself!
In Pavlov’s Dogs, players are dogs taking tests from a group of famous Dogtors like Sigmund Fetch, Abby Maslow, and Collie Jung!
Dogs work together to succeed in a series of tests which will analyze their memory and recall skills. Players take turns acting as the DOGTOR to ensure the other dogs are following the rules. Dogtor's rules modify card values, change player actions, add verbal responses, or add physical actions to the test.
Even if you don’t pass every test your love of dogs, psychology, or games will have you drooling for more Pavlov’s Dogs!!!
The campaign's about 1/3 of the way to its goal with 21 days left to go.
From the campaign:
The evil LUMBERCO wants to cut down protected forests! These lumberjacks will STOMP, DYNAMITE, and SNEAK through a forest to make room for their big, bad bulldozers and tree-chopping chainsaws! Only the forest animals and their friends can stop them now!
As the forest animals, players setup BEARICADES and recruit PREDATORS (like The Cougar, The Bat, or The Wolf Pack), to defend against the incoming hordes of lumberjacks. Can your forest survive the longest and avoid being cut down?!
It’s SURVIVAL OF THE FOREST – use guile, strategy, and the powers of 16 unique forest creatures to save your forest. An environmentally aware card game for 2 to 4 players.
The Kickstarter is a bit more than 1/3 of the way to their goal with still 26 days left to go.

Mechanical Dice Towers up on Kickstarter
There is a new project launched on Kickstarter by Moroz Publishing. This is not a board game, but something each of us wants to have on the table while playing our favorite RPGs, miniature wargames and a lot of other games with dice.
These are absolutely unique dice towers with a rotation mechanism. Roll dice by dropping them on the platform and pushing the lever!
Moroz Publishing together with Rightgames company are proud to present the Orc Totem and the White Castle — dice towers with a rotating platform. Unlike ordinary towers, you don’t throw your dice inside. Rather, you place them on a special platform, and let them loose with a special lever.
In addition to those two towers comes MDT-7 — a compact collapsible dice tower. This one easily fits in your bag and takes just a few seconds to fold out!
The project page has nice GIFs showing how these beauties work. Towers are shown in the introduction video too. Should be worth to see for yourself!

Tanto Cuore International launching June 7th
Japanime Games is bringing Tanto Cuore to countries across the globe! They will launch a multi-platform crowdfunding campaign in 5 languages on June 7th 2016.

Japanime Games’ goal is to be funded by 250 backers in each language available through Kickstarter, Ulule, StartNext, Verkami, and GiochiStarter.

Stretch goals will be reached every 5K based on the overall funding total. Other languages may be added to the campaign based on fan interest. Each language will be represented by a pledge level and if 250 backers support the pledge level, Japanime Games will commit to making Tanto Cuore in that language.

Kromlech Weekend Pigment Promo
the Weekend Promo is on. This time we have something for painters and modellers. All our Weathering Powders are 10% off.
You can use Kromlech Weathering Powders to create very realistic weathering on your models. Excellent for tanks and vehicles can also be used on infantry models and scenery.
You can use it straight from the pot or mix with water, white spirit or liquid acrylic resin.
All Kromlech Weathering Powders are made from natural, non toxic materials.
This discount is active till the end of Sunday.
The game is designed to be quick-playing and easy to teach and learn. On your turn, you have a card in your paw (since Kobolds don't have hands). That card tells you your meat and what you taste like (kobolds are, apparently, delicious when cooked). When it's your turn, you draw a card and then decide one of your two cards to play. Some cards have abilities when played. Others have abilities when they're on your plate (that is to say, in play). Others have special rules for when they're in your paw. Certain cards will give you a sammich. Others will give sammiches to King Torg (all hail King Torg!). Others let you eat other players (but don't worry, there's more kobolds to take their place). When the game ends, you see who got to eat the most sammiches. They win!
Artwork for the game was done by the always-talented John Kovalic (please don't cook and eat John Kovalic).
The Kickstarter campaign is up and running now. They're 2/3 of the way to their goal with still 29 days left on the clock.

With the source of these troubles unknown and no end in sight, the future of Ravenor may lay in the hands of band of would-be heroes.
A deluxe edition of the adventure with stats and additional cards for the Ogres and Underworlds RPG will also be published. More information on the adventure and the new line of products will be made available during the coming days as the release date draws closer.

Dystopian Wars Events Announced for Gnome Con
Dystopian Wars Demo Game
Gnomecon Savannah GA, 2015
(2 to 6 players)
Saturday March 7 2pm to 6pm
Imagine a world similar to our own, but subtly different. Now imagine the year is 1870 and the Industrial Revolution occurred decades earlier than in our own world. Technology is far advanced, and in many cases, unrecognizable, which has led to the development of fantastic naval vessels, hulking land ships and terror from the skies in the form of airships and war balloons. Rumors abound of an even more insidious enemy coming from Mars! Will mankind unite in time to save his planet?
New Cyborg Hills from LaserCutCard
Strange symmetrical mesas rise from the cyborg landscape. Are they data centres? Landing pads? Capacitors? No-one knows except the cyborgs, and they only speak binary.
This week we expand our Cyborg range with a new set of cyborg-themed hills.
The set comprises two large half-hills and two small half-hills that can be stacked or arranged as desired.
The large hills are about 250cm wide and 125cm deep on the top (but will be 250cm square if joined together. The bottom slopes out a little giving a footprint of almost 300cm square).
The set can be combined to create a two-level hill but alternatively you can use them as two separate hills. Both levels are just over 40mm high and so will block Line Of Site to all normal infantry models.
The large will easily hold around 30 models on a standard 25mm base, and the two level hill will hold around 28 models easily.
Schrödinger's Cats Starts in on Stretch Goals
Today, Schrödinger’s Cats the first Kickstarter from Heather O’Neill and Heather Wilson, was funded in 7 days with the help of 352 backers. The project was released on January 20th, 2015 to an overwhelmingly positive response from new fans. With the early funding of the game the first official stretch goal has been unlocked offering an additional physical reward.
Heather O’Neill said, “We are so excited that our game has received such an enthusiastic response!”
Her partner, Heather Wilson, said, “I can’t wait to get Schrödinger’s Cats into the hands of our backers and to play the game with them at cons this year!”
The first printing of Schrödinger’s Cats is expected this summer, with high resolution print-and-play versions available shortly after the Kickstarter campaign ends.
New Pedestal from Thomarillion

New Stretch Goals Unlocked for Fightin' Fungi Kickstarter
We have quickly hit basic funding already gone through some of the stretch goals, and made a work-in-progress PDF available to backers. Hit the link below to see the Dread Matanagar and the polearm-wielding Fungus Amazon, plus concept sketches for the Pillbug Rider and the Pig-riding Halfling Truffle Hunter which will be made available if the campaign reaches 200 supporters.
What's in the box!?!?!
From the campaign:
Uncertainty didn’t kill the cat, but that doesn’t mean it’s not dead. Dr. Erwin Schrödinger and Werner Heisenberg taught us that. We’ve all heard about the cats in boxes experiment and maybe we're even curious about the results -- but attempting such an experiment would be INSANE in real life! Now you can try your hand at challenging the uncertainty principle without risking the lives of innocent kittens or exposure to radioactive particles! Awww!
In Schrödinger’s Cats players run experiments, form hypotheses, and try to one-up each other’s research. Players take on the role of a Cat Physicist such as Albert Felinestein, Sally Prride, or Neil deGrasse Tabby! Using their special ability to help prove their hypothesis, or at least debunk someone else’s, each cat physicist tries to determine the minimum number of alive cats, dead cats, or empty boxes across all the boxes in Schrödinger’s lab.
You may not be certain your hypothesis is valid, but if you love cats, science, and games you will be certain to love the Schrödinger's Cats card game!
So here's another group of shorter stories we found over the past few days we wanted to pass along.

New Bust WIPs from Abyss
Jason hasn't been sculpting for a very long time yet but as you see, he is quite a natural talent being self taught. In the beginning he made all sorts of awesome sculpts BUT!.... He also squashed quite a lot of them!!! He simply re-used the clay on a new sculpt to practice more. This means that a lot of the sculpts he did last year are no more... :(
However, and I hope he finds more, ther have been some refugees! Below you see the ones he has found hiding. Let us all just hope more were wise enough to escape and will one day return to us!

New Concept Art from John Kovalic
Can I tell you what these are for? No. No, I cannot.
But it will rock!
I gotta say... I kinda want one. It'd go well with my plush Richard from Looking For Group.
From the update:
So, some people have asked fro a special Kickstarter Exclusive. Others have asked for plush. How about both!
The amazing and rad Tally Heilke (of Tally's Treasury) will be producing HAND MADE Kobolds for those who can add 50$ (us) or $55 (intl). Check out her very cool plush work on her site!
To make these already special , one-of-a-kind Handmade dolls even more amazing, they will each come with their own..."Kobold Patch" My Kobold adoption form. This form will feature a name, stats, and in game Kobold plush rules - and will be PERSONALLY SIGNED, NUMBERED, and DOODLED ON by JOHN KOVALIC. (And look how CUTE THEY ARE!!!!)
From the announcement:
Today, 9th Level Games is pleased to announce a new stretch goal for their first Kickstarter. If backers help the Kickstarter total reach the $50,000 mark, Steve Jackson Games will publish a Munchkin Kobolds Ate My Baby! booster pack! All Hail King Torg!
Chris O'Neill from 9th Level Games said, "Like all Kobolds, we secretly dream about the day when we will finally triumph over the Adventurers. We never thought that day would be in the Dungeons of MUNCHKIN! Unleashing Kovalic on the collision of the Kobolds with Munchkin-verse is going to be EPIC! I mean have you seen the Kobold with the Chainsaw yet?"
Once it’s confirmed that the fifteen card booster will go into production, Steve Jackson Games will design an exclusive Munchkin KAMB! bookmark. All Kickstarter backers who’ve opted to receive physical rewards will receive this bookmark as an added bonus!
The new booster pack, which would be compatible with any Munchkin core set, is tentatively scheduled for a 2014 release and will be co-developed by both companies. John Kovalic, who illustrates Kobolds Ate My Baby! and the popular card game Munchkin, will draw new kobolds for both the bookmark and booster
From the update:
Today, 9th Level Games and John Kovalic are pleased to announce that their first Kickstarter, for a new expanded, full color edition of the Kobolds Ate My Baby! RPG was funded within twenty-four hours. The project was released on March 4, 2013 and initial stretch goals have already been unlocked for the line. Fans are heavily engaged in the project and new titles, like an adventure written about the Kickstarter backers, are already in progress as a way of further connecting with them.
Chris O’Neill of 9th Level Games said, “We are blown away by the response from fans, the people love this game, and have missed it. We’re so excited
John Kovalic, illustrator of Kobolds Ate My Baby! and Munchkin, said, "Kobolds are nasty, brutish and short; the funding of Kobolds Ate My Baby turned out to be fantastic, brilliant and incredibly short. I eagerly await the huge amount of fun we'll be having on this. We want to give the fans something very special."
The new edition of the Kobolds Ate My Baby! RPG is scheduled to be a Fall/Winter 2013 release digital and print on demand formats from DriveThruRPG. Currently, 9th Level Games has an existing catalog of other titles and Kobolds supplements available now on DriveThruRPG. Pending the conclusion of the Kickstarter and delivery of the backer rewards, a publication schedule will be announced on the publisher’s website.
Gotta love John Kovalic's work.
