Thanks +Toby Allen for stopping by!
 
Today we have a spotlight on Toby Allen, the illustrator who came up with the Real Monsters project that has exploded around the 'net recently.

Howdy folks :)

I'm looking for a game that uses an expanding/modular board that grows as you progress through the game. I'm thinking in the same vein as Zombies!!! and Betrayal at the House on the Hill, but preferably for two players.

Any suggestions are welcome :)

Mage Knight is another alternative. But it's not a casual game.

Is it possible that the redstone involved for the timers caused white wolfs lag? It looked as if he/she only started moving properly again once each timer had finished.

The new round 1is great too; a better test of a pro trialler's speed building.
