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.

But what about… – Gandersnitch Rants!

Good morning all you smelly over evolved plankton, I know that this is going to put me off working on my story for the rest of the day, you know, the one about how I almost saved Christmas and all. But it grates on me enough that I need to say it  now and move…

Hogswallow Rules, Preview, and Stuff

My mind is mostly taken up with math right now. Well, math and a busted furnace. We are launching a kickstarter for our card game, Hogswallow, on Tuesday, Nov 17th, and that means it is crunch time now in terms of prep work. The game is done, but I have to make sure all the…

Chicken Lost Head! – Being Productive Without Going Insane

There is a point that happens to all creative types when we realize that we have too much to do and not enough time to do it. The costume and makeup professor I studied under in college called this, “Chicken lost head!” She was from China and did not quite understand American idioms. But after…
