  I wanted to take a moment today to thank everyone who saw and supported our kickstarter for the game I designed, Magnum Opus.

Penny Arcade The Game – Gamers vs Evil takes the best aspects of Dominion and Ascension and creates something light-hearted, and ridiculously easy to play. You have a pool […]

A few months ago, my friend and local gamestore owner handed me a demo pack of a game he received called Iconica. Knowing I was a game designer, he wanted to know what I thought, because the designer of Iconica lives in the same city as I. I read through the rules and examined the […]

Anyone who follows this site knows well of my advocacy for The Game Crafter, and they’ve gotten a facelift! No longer in beta, TGC has relaunched their site with a brand new look and many new features on the way. Not the least of which is apparently a new shipping method for games, they come […]
