Over the next while, I will be reviewing the seven games within the excellent story game anthology "Seven Wonders", as published by Pelgrane Press under the auspices of +Cat Tobin. The first of these is a dark, beautiful game by +Becky Annison titled "When the Dark is Gone", where players portray the former heroes of Narnia, after they have grown up and are trying to deal with their traumas.

Take a look!

Behold, it emerges from the shadow of the forge!
 
...and then –one heavy August Wednesday– something you thought you couldn't have was at last made available to you.

Sweet Agatha can now be purchased in PDF format.

http://bit.ly/2b0dlbk

It's the same as the long out-of-print, Diana Jones nominated game from 2009, but with an updated layout presented in one convenient 'print and play' file. All for just $6.00. Un-watermarked and DRM free.

You can start your search for Agatha tonight.

The third episode of the Ottawa Game Publishers podcast is now up, where we discuss playtesting at length. Enjoy!
 
Episode 3: The Necessary Evils of Playtesting is now available to stick in your ears. All those who don't suffer from insanity listening to our voices can hear our own experiences with playtesting, from public beta tests to simply having your friends beat the crap out of it. There's never one go-to solution and one that will fit the needs of your game.

As always, thanks to the Accidental Survivors for letting us temporarily hijack your feed and we'll stop once the ransom is paid. Unmarked bills left in a brown suitcase by the park bench or we mail it back to you in pieces.

Episode 92 of the #RPGDesignPanelcast  is up, where +Shoshana Kessock +Caleb Stokes and I discuss the 101 of RPG publishing. It's a fun overview of what goes into a game, and a great episode to share with new designers.

Let the record show that the One Shot podcast folks are fantastic people.
 
This year the IGDN is crowdfunding their scholarship to send new and innovative designers to the Metatopia game design festival.

At ONE SHOT we are pretty big fans of the #IGDN and #Metatopia. We think both of these organizations make gaming better by giving new designers the tools they need to be successful and bring new people to our hobby.

Starting 8/18 at 8:00 PM CST to 8/25 at 10:00 PM CST we will match contributions to the IGDN scholarship up to $400 total (because we are not bajillionaires.)

If you max us out, together we will have raised enough money to send two new designers to Metatopia. Take it from me, Metatopia can start careers, build friendships, and change lives.

If you have been thinking about donating but weren't sure, or if you are just finding out about this scholarship now, please consider making a contribution. Remember it counts for double starting 8/18 at 8:00 PM CST!
Hey there! We're the Indie Game Developer Network , a collection of 60+ small press designers who support indie game developers making, publishing, and promoting fantastic games. The IGDN brings together a wide variety of developers–-including pen and paper, card game, and board game designers--...

Just in time for GenCon (even if you're not going)...

Episode 2: Networking Pros and Cons discusses the benefits and myths about networking to not only get people aware of your projects but to pick up on juicy gossip about the industry, work with freelancers and most importantly get people aware of your projects. Wait, did I say that one already? Good, because it's vital.

Episode 90 of the #RPGDesignPanelcast  is now up, wherein +Mark Richardson  and +Kenneth Hite discuss cartography and how it impacts RPG experiences. There are a number of references to the previous cartography panel from Metatopia 2014, which you can find as episode 53 of this same podcast.

Lots of good content, so dig in!

Chambers propres et l'entroit est proche au autoroute. Malheureusement, la bouffe est bien trop cher et y a pas assez des restaurants de déjeuner proche de la.

I was extremely pleased by the service provided by ADD Printing and Packaging. I required a rather unconventional piece of packaging for one of my products, and they worked with me during every step of the way. They were prompt in responding to my requests, knowledgeable and professional. In order to get very impressive prices, they do print in China. My only warning is to be sure to check that shipping times or Chinese New Year don't interfere with your business timelines.
