Working on a new kids’ game

February 11, 2014 by

I’ve been working on a new kids’ game the past few months, and it’s finally starting to take shape. I’m pretty excited about it. As opposed to rpgKids, which was basically a pretty simple ruleset with no story attached, this game will have a story built into it, and not be as combat focused as […]

Here’s my attempt at a quick and dirty conversion of the introductory adventure for the 2nd Edition Revised and Expanded version of West End Games SW RPG, The Pirates of Prexiar, into the new FFG SW system… I am not going to reproduce the whole adventure, just the relevant bits. This isn’t just a blog […]

I received the new Star Wars Edge of the Empire Beginner’s game in the mail yesterday, and thought I’d share with you the contents of the box. I can’t speak yet to the actual playing experience, that won’t happen for another week or so, but I can comment on the contents of the game.  It’s worth noting that I […]

Playing Dungeon! With My Kid

This weekend I had the opportunity to play Dungeon! with my daughter (7).  We had a great time, and the rules were easy enough for her to quickly pick up and play.  The game is simple, but very fun, and I definitely recommend it for parents looking for a D&D-ish game to play with their […]

2nd Edition D&D Coming Back, Old Modules Coming Back… What’s Next?

November 2, 2012 by

It seems that Wizards of the Coast is on a reprint kick. Of course, it’s easy to figure out why.  4th Ed. is on its way out, and at this point that’s more reality than speculation.  Books haven’t been announced, and yeah, Dungeon/Dragon content is still being released, but…. obviously 5th Ed. is king right […]

EDIT:  Mike Mearls tweeted today that the board game is no hoax.  Does this mean that the 3.5 reprints are a go? Interesting times indeed. “I’m just sitting here Watching the wheels go round and round I really love to watch them roll.”  John Lennon Well, this certainly made for an interesting week in D&D land.

So the cat is out of the bag… Not that I was hiding the cat in the bag, because I didn’t know anything, but the cat’s out of the bag.  There’s a new D&D in the works, and an open playtest will help chart its course. So what do we know about this new D&D? […]

Star Wars campaign idea: You own the Falcon

  I’ve been jonesing to run a SW game lately.  Really, really bad. It isn’t going to happen… at home my players want to keep playing Dragon Age, and I’m running an online 4e game for some nice folks who seem to be enjoying it.  Regardless, I’ve been thinking of what I would run if […]
