Dice Hate Me Games

While I, myself, am a teetotaler, I can certainly appreciate the craftsmanship and care that goes into a product such as beer. And I can see why people really love to talk about the intricacies of it, the differences between different brews, and the debates about proper methods of creation. If you're one of those people, you should check out Homebrewers, a new beer-brewing board game that's up on Kickstarter now.

The game's tied. Your team is up at bat. All eyes are watching you from the stands.
Here's the wind-up.
And the pitch!
Bottom of the 9th does away with the "boring" part of a game of baseball and immediately takes you to the 9th inning. In the Clubhouse Expansion, your options for your team greatly expand, giving you more players, more equipment, more staff, and tourney rules.
Happy Halloween, everyone!
Whether you're going out to a party or staying in, celebrate the holiday with some spooky-themed gaming. At least, that'd be my suggestion.

But how do you know what will and won't be a good game? You read a review, of course! And we've got a whole new batch for you here today.

Welcome once again to another TGN Saturday Edition where we round up all the reviews we've found over the week and put them into our Review Roundup (and around and around... and it comes out here).

Dice Hate Me Games is running a Kickstarter campaign in order to fund Brew Crafters, a board game all about making beer. They're already over their funding goal, so it's stretch goals for the next 25 days.


From the campaign:

In Brew Crafters, players assume management of a local craft brewery, working hard to manage resources, use their workers wisely, and develop their brewing line to create the best local brews. Players can perform research into different beer styles, brewing recipes such as Smoked Porter, Pumpkin Ale, and Coffee Stout, crafting their own unique brewing strategy along the way.

Brew Crafters honors the tradition of classic Euro-style board games, but at its heart beats a unique brewery processing system that must be constantly improved, monitored, and manned in order to keep the beloved beverages rolling off the line. Each brewery has access to a variety of equipment upgrades, farms, markets, and a plethora of specialty workers, ensuring a high level of replayability and strategic avenues. In addition, each player is studiously working to be first to develop several rotating gold-label specialty recipes that will earn them a better reputation at the end of year three when the best local brewer will be honored.

Play Unplugged had a chat with Dice Hate Me Games while at the Origins Game Fair. See what was talked about.

From the interview:

The dice may hate them, but gamers love them. Matt Snodgrass chats with four of the folks from Dice Hate Me Games. First up is company founder Chris Kirkman, followed by Compounded creator Darrell Louder. Then we are joined by T.C. Petty III, the mind behind Dice Hat Me Games latest Kickstarter project VivaJava. Our last interview in the series is with Jason Kotarski, designer of The Great Heartland Hauling Company. It’s a quartet of fun!

Dice Hate Me Games launched their Kickstarter project in order to fund VivaJava" The Coffee Game: The Dice Game.

From the campaign:

VivaJava: The Coffee Game: The Dice Game – or, more simply, VivaJava Dice – is the successor to the well-received 2012 release (and Kickstarter veteran) VivaJava: The Coffee Game. As in its predecessor, players of VivaJava Dice take on the roles of employees at the VivaJava CoffeeCo., scouring the globe for the best beans to keep the company on top while keeping themselves one step ahead of the rest of the executives.
