Homebrewers Board Game Up On Kickstarter

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.

I know. I know. I know. It's Tuesday, not Saturday. But I was a tad busy Saturday, if you didn't notice. ;)
So, after flying home yesterday, and then getting around 12 hours of sleep overnight, I'm looking to get back into the swing of things here. Most companies "shut down" during Gen Con, since they were all at the show, but there's still plenty to catch up with from over the weekend. That starts with the reviews I know you all so desperately desire.

Friday Snippets

Man, it is busy over here on this side of the screen. Pretty much all week there's been stuff going on. I'm sure that's part of why it feels like it's really flown by... And I've still not really gotten a handle on what I'm going to do with my D&D group tomorrow! Gah! There'll be time for that later (hopefully, theoretically, grammatically, esoterically). But, if we're to keep up our energy, we should nosh on some bite-sized gaming stories.

Today on the platter we have: Avignon: Pilgrimage Coming To Kickstarter in January, CloseYa network is open for a public beta in US, WW1 Themed Dice to be released in January from I Will Never Grow Up, Aenor Miniatures website Online, Week 3 December Deals Available From Greater Than Games, Merry Bitsmass Weekend Promo from Kromlech, and 3D Preview Posted For Ether Wars.

Lazer Ryderz Up On Kickstarter

People love going fast. I mean, rollercoasters wouldn't be nearly as cool if they puttered along at 5mph. We all have that need... that need for large amounts of velocity! Or something. Anyway, the various Lazer Ryderz have a need for speed and are ready to race each-other for it, looking to harness the energy of Power Prizms, which will let them zoom off across the galaxy. Just be careful, or you'll crash into the trails left by the other riders. That's the story behind Lazer Ryderz, a new game up on Kickstarter by Greater Than Games.

Greater Than Games Announces Prime War

The gaming industry is, if nothing else, fickle. Some games take off out of the blue, while others don't get as much limelight as many people feel it should. That doesn't mean those games are bad, mind you. Sometimes things just don't seem to be working out so well. At those times, game companies must assess where best to allocate resources. In the case of Greater Than Games, Sentinel Tactics hasn't been doing bad, but it's not been the hit they were hoping for. As such, they're going to pull it back a bit, working on it in the background as they focus on a new project: Prime War.

Greater Than Games Hosts Game Design Contest

Some of you may have heard about Deck Builder: The Deck Builder Game. It's a little side-project for Greater Than Games that they came out with this summer. It was a big hit, and so they're going to make another like it. Well, somewhat like it. You see, they're running a design contest where the name of the game also describes the style of game.
