‘Tis the Season…

The kickstarter is funded and in its final hours. The tree is up and decorated, the last of the gifts ship out today, and there is Christmas music playing. I have also threatened to cancel then entire holiday and return all the gifts at least 3 times every day for the past week. I don’t know if this…

Company of Fools (but I like them!)

Hello all! I haven’t had much time to write in the past two… well, really since Thanksgiving. Today is no different. But I have been interviewed by the Geek Watch One podcast, and Dice Squad did a nice promo video for me as well. Both are very funny, both are run by swell people, and…

Holiday Raffle Thingy!

Most of my closest friends know that while I was raised in a church going family, I am not a particularly religious person. I am spiritual, to a point, but I don’t believe that any one needs religion to be a good person, or conversely that the lack of religion leads one to do evil…

Strange Days… And a Free Sample!

I did not forget about you, I promise! Though I must confess that I really thought about just skipping today and posting tomorrow instead. I got called in to work my seasonal retail job this morning, as I was walking out the door to get my kids to school. So I had to quickly change…

Black Friday and Other Holiday Things

I took a job in a big chain retail store for the holiday season this year. Surprisingly enough, our slowest season in November through January, and I thought it would be wise to get out and do something different that actually makes some money during these months. Believe it or not, I am having a…

Politics are Scary – Gandersnitch Rants

Hello my dear puerile plebeians! It is I, Gandersnitch the Goblin, with an important message. Effective immediately, I am suspending my campaign for the President of the United States. Here is the deal. I thought it would be fun to jump into the fray, make some jokes, tell some stories, and point out some absurdities.…

Hogswallow, Day 1 – Blastoff!

kslogo 1I had honestly forgotten how exciting and stressful this is, day one of a brand new kickstarter. I have shared the link with over twenty different groups, and posted on all my pages, and still I know that only about 10% of my friends will even see it. That is just the way kickstarter works.

This is our third kickstarter project, with the other two being quite successful, but it is our first gaming one and I am going to be trying some new things this time around. For starters, I have sent demo decks to two geeky podcast friends who are going to play the game and help promote it. I also have a plan for how I am going to do the day to day promotion, since just sharing the link every day doesn’t work well. It annoys people. So instead, I am going the play the game, albeit very slowly. One card a day.

Hopefully, everyone here has already seen the link on facebook and has shared it on their own wall. If not, here is the link again:
Hogswallow: a card game of mythic storytelling

Please, help me get the word out. Plant the seeds of imagination and watch them grow!

Thank you.
