Purgatory House

It is October. ‘Tis the season for ghosts, candy, forest fires, and overpriced decorations at Target. It is also the season for scary games. I humbly submit an easy to play, pick-up and run, haunted house themed role-playing game called “Purgatory House.” The mechanics are simple, as challenges are resolved with a hand of Blackjack,…

Are You Mental? (plus a new website)

Since I like you folks the best, it is true, I do… I figured I would give you a heads up on the next big project I am working on for our publishing/gaming company Wicked Clever (which by the way has a brand new website!) Now, this is in addition to the next Gandersnitch book…

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…

The Goblin Guy’s Marvelous Menagerie – 7/8/15

In addition to posting fiction every other Monday, I have decided to set a schedule and post to this blog three times a week. Mondays will be the a fore mentioned fiction (alternating with Gandersnitch Rants) and Friday’s will be an insight to how I work (or don’t work as the case may sometimes be.)…
