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…

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…

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.

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…

Hogswallow – A Preview

As my most faithful readers will already know, there is a story in The Completely Inappropriate Tales of Gandersnitch the Goblin that features a cast of odd characters sitting in a parlor playing a card game. That card game is called Hogswallow. What most of my readers do not know however, is that it has…

Con on the Cob Wrap-up Report

(Note: I had planned to do this wrap up as an audio episode, but for this first time this year, I have come down with the post-con crud. So instead of forcing you to listen to my froggy, sneezy voice, I will just leave this here. You know how it goes.) Gandersnitch: Hello! Gandersnitch the Goblin…

Gencon 2015 Recap

Another GenCon has come and gone, plus a drive to and from St. Louis to pick up the kids, and we are starting to recover from the exhausting trip. Of course, instead of relaxing last night, we had to scrub the floors in three rooms. It seems the dogs managed to outsmart our barricades without…
