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.

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:

That card game is called Hogswallow. What most of my readers do not know however, is that it has…

Pumpkin Spice & Plague – Monday Morning Musings

About this time last year, I bought a bag of pumpkin and ghost shaped marshmallows. My kids enjoyed them, as something different and special, but there was nothing terribly strange or interesting about the bag. They were still marshmallows, just with different shapes. So last week, when I saw a bag of pumpkin shaped marshmallows again…
