Inducted Into The Game Crafter Hall of Fame!

In light of the recent publication of Roll'n Bump, I've been given a prestigious spot in the Game Crafter Hall of Fame!

The Hall of Fame was created to recognize designers form the Game Crafter community who have achieved great levels of success with their games or have been picked up by traditional publishers.

I am honoured to join the ranks of such Hall of Fame alumni as Jason Glover (Plague:The Card Game), Matt Worden (Jump Gate/Space Mission) and Kevin Lanzing (Flash Point: Fire Rescue). Truely, I'm in great company.

I did an email interview with The Game Crafter to talk about the transition from Shake Out! to Roll'n Bump which you can check it out here.

Pro's and Con's Review: Terra Mystica

Format: Board Game
Designers: Jens Drögemüller and Helge Ostertag
Publisher: Z-Man Games

I recently attended the Ludo Outaouais event in nearby Gatineau where I got to play Terra Mystica, a brand new game from Z-Man Games that's been getting a fair bit of buzz.

Terra Mystica is a city building and resource management game with a hint of terraforming that combines elements seen in multiple other games into something unique but ultimately more complex than it needs to be.

Read on for a short review of my experience with the game from a professional and consumer point of view.

Marvin's Mittens Available Now!

"When I became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up." 

I'm friends with a few of the guys from Breakfall and wanted to let you all know that their first big release, Marvin's Mittens is now available to purchase on Desura. I was lucky enough to be given a press copy of the game, so you can read on for my thoughts on what the game has to offer.
