First Dance of New Look Dragon
This week I made it along to Newcastle Playtest for the second month on the trot (pretty good effort - since my new job started there's been a lot more travel and hence fewer nights out). Of course, it wasn't straightforward, as I was in Manchester for work...

The Economics of a Very Small Print Run
Back in May I talked about the economics of a small print run of a game. At that point I was intending to start a second hobby publishing company (a la Reiver Games, my first, unsuccessful attempt) and make small print runs of hand-made games. A promotion a...

2016 Goals
We're four days into 2016, so it's about time I set myself some goals for the year. I've done it for the last three years and I'm doing the same again this year. As before, there are four categories: blogging, gaming, game design and app development. Bloggi...

Nothing To See Here, Move Along
As expected, it was a week of no progress. After Monday's trip to Manchester, we had several nights of interrupted sleep as The Daughter was down with a filthy cold that kept waking her (and by extension us) up throughout the night. I also had a couple of n...

NaGa DeMon Post Script: Late Ruling
Another week, another blog post written in a hotel (this time at Manchester Airport, for work). So my last blog post was written on the morning of the last day of NaGa DeMon and spelt out exactly what I had achieved during the month of November. It turns ou...

The Art of the Matter
Back when I ran Reiver Games I made four games. The first Border Reivers was a hand-made limited edition, and I did almost everything myself, including the art (except the box cover, that was an original painting by my dad, a retired art teacher and artist)...

More KickStarter Thoughts
As I'm sure you know, I'm not a fan of KickStarter (see Exhibit A and Exhibit B ), until this week I've only backed one project on KickStarter, and as unlikely as it seems, it wasn't a board game. This distrust of KickStarter, coupled with my natural risk-a...

Turning The Dragon Inside Out
It's been a great start to 2016. Last weekend I spent a couple of days with my old friend Tim (I've known him since school, but never went to school with him). During the days we hung out with our families and played with the kids, while discussing his fort...

2015 The Year In Review
For the third year in a row I set myself some goals at the beginning of the year in four categories: blogging, playing games, designing games and app development. They were meant to be a stretch, but achievable so here's how I got on. Blogging I set myself ...

The Second Coming
No sooner had my parents' visit come to an end then my father-in-law turns up! It's been a busy couple of weeks with guests. I did manage to squeeze in a trip to Manchester for work and a Games Night between the two though. Games Night was good, we had a ne...

NaGa DeMon: The Final Reckoning
November ends today, and with it, NaGa DeMon . This year I did something a bit different, instead of trying to design a game from scratch like I did with Zombology in 2013 and Dragon Dance in 2014, I set myself the goal of making a print run of a game in a ...
