You need to make a Magic Meeple Games Community. With such a HUGE game as this people on G+ will want somewhere to discuss it and your other game!

A strangely poignant message for participants of the upcoming election, brought to you by a random arcade token I found in a drawer

ANNOUNCEMENT TIME!

‪#‎FireOfEidolon‬ by Michael Lipton and Magic Meeple Games will launch on Kickstarter on July 14, 2016!

That date might sound familiar to some of you, and yes, it is exactly one year since we started our KickStarter for Darkrock Ventures which will begin shipping on June 10. We wanted to wait until the games were closer to their final destination but we can't wait any longer! We're very excited to be getting another project in the wild and we hope you'll all stick with us through this journey too!

Please mark your calendars and spread the news!
Thank you everyone for all your support!

The Legend Of Zelda: Oni Link Begins
100% Walkthrough #15/30
Zelda Temple (8th Dungeon)
In this vdeo we make our way to and complete the 8th dungeon, the Zelda Temple is a Castle which appears to have been built by the Hyrule's Royal Family which is very mysterious as it is located in the dimension of Termina and not Hyrule, the dungeon is connected to Ganon and Zelda, we will complete it fully in this video but we will not find out it origins or purpose until later in the game, there is a lot we are not being told however we will have some answers by the end of this video, some answers, but not all. On the way to the dungeon we meet a Great Fairy in the Forbidden Forrest, she doubles our Magic Metre, we find a Piece Of Heart in the Witch's Swamp and another Piece Of Heart in the West Field. The dungeon itself is challenging, it can be very frustrating at times, you will need to use everything you learned up to this point to conquer the Zelda Temple. Like every other dungeons there is a Map, a Compass and a Boss Key, as usual there is also Treasure to be found however this time it is much harder to find, the treasure is the Blue Mail, a very helpful piece of equipment that doubles Link's defence, after you defeat the boss you can bomb a wall in the final room of the dungeon, inside is the Blue Mail, the wall dosent stand out and you would not know that you can bomb it unless you look at your map, but you probably wouldnt be checking a map right after completing a dungeon. There are a total of six Small Keys and five Unlock Buttons hidden throughout, even though they can be difficult to find, I reallly enoyed looking for them, I have very high praise for how this dungeon was designed, the Unlock Buttons and Small Keys are integrated brilliantly with the overall design of the dungeon. Other trials include four Spike Roller Rooms, three Fragile Walls which do not look like they can be broken, you will also have to light torchs and push blocks, there are invisible paths in the basements, you just have to attempt to walk across a bottomless pit and hope you dont fall. Including the basement the Zelda Temple has three floors, for most of this dungeon you have to climb to the 2nd Floor and find a room that has most its floor missing, you you need to fall through the floor in several correct locations, by doing this you might find a Small Keys or stairs which leads to an unexplored area of the basement. The Boss of the dungeon is a lone Armos Kinght, he is dissapointingly easy to defeat with of without the help of Oni-Link, the dungeon is difficult so I guess I shouldnt complain about the boss being easy, every weapons works well on him but I prefar to use the Hammer, after you defeat him you are rewarded with another full Heart Container, in the final room of the dungeon just beyond the boss room we find the final Holy Grail, collecting the five Holy Grails was supposed to cure Link of the Oni-Link curse, however things didnt quite go according to plan, our true enemy is revealed and the game is far from over !

New update posted and more stretch goals broken! We are 9 more page likes away from another +1 card achievement, and we unveiled our goal for Spot UV coating on specific parts of the board (it's going to look AMAZING.)

Can we hit 200% funding today? I think we can!

This hotel clearly used to be studio apartments, and that is kind of a good thing. Very nice rooms with fridge w. Icemaker, oven/range, microwave, dishwasher. The nightly rates are kind of high, hopefully their extended stay rates are better

Had to pick up a friend here. Staff was very rude to him, I was told. Place seemed to be in a very bad part of town as well.

There is no building even here. Why is this listed in Google maps at all?
