In Case You Didn’t Notice, We’ve Moved!

28 04 2014

Hey everyone! You may have noticed that clicking on  this url: www.TheologyofGames.com takes you to a completely different-looking site than it has in the past nearly 2 years.

The reason for that is simple: We’ve moved. We’re always striving for ways to do what we do better. So the time has finally come for us to say farewell to WordPress and migrate to a different hosting service.

What does this mean for you, our loyal and faithful readers? A few things–don’t worry it’s nothing major.

1 – Going to TheologyofGames.com simply takes you to the new site. We’ve migrated ALL of our previous posts to the new site, and we now have a nifty search bar that will allow you to search via keywords etc. through our archives.

2 – If you subscribed to our site through your WordPress account, you’ll need to resubscribe. If you subscribed using an email address, we’ve ported that over to the new system. WE WILL NEVER SELL YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS. We only use them to push out new content; it’s just like it was before, only under a new system. We’ve put a convenient subscription field on our sidebar of the new site. The same goes for your RSS feed; here’s our new RSS feed: http://www.theologyofgames.com/theology-of-games/?format=rss

3 – We’ll be more awesome than ever! We hope! Please let us know if you find anything weird. I mean, weirder than that picture of Jeremiah as the back end of a My Little Pony cosplay…

Thanks so much for all of your support over the first phase of TOG; we’re excited to move forward into this new era!

Bullfrogs–A Double-Take Review

10 04 2014


Jeremiah was a bullfrog,

was a good friend of mine!
Never understood a single word he said,
but I would help him drink his wine!

– Three Dog Night

Bullfrogs CoverIn Bullfrogs players take command of their frog forces in a battle for supreme power and control of the pond! Bullfrogs is a tactical area-control game with a constantly changing game surface. So how does one control an army of frog forces and reign over the pond? Glad you asked; let’s jump in!

Happy Tabletop Day!

5 04 2014

tabletopday5x5feet-logoIf you didn’t know by now, today is International TableTop Day, an international holiday created by TableTop host and geek ambassador Wil Wheaton. Folks are encouraged to share a game with friends, family and maybe a complete stranger or two along the way, in an effort to promote the hobby and the social interaction that seems to be missing in this digital world. We’re sure most of you are busy playing and not reading blog posts today, but we thought we’d ask you what you’re playing today?

Also, we thought it would be helpful to point out that: in order to help celebrate the day, Amazon has put some great classics on sale at huge discounts. You can find them all by clicking this link, right here!

Thanks for reading and enjoy your TableTop Day!

You can subscribe to TOG by filling in your email over on the right, we’d also love to connect with you on FacebookTwitterInstagramYouTube and of course there’s more TOG where this came from on our Podcast! Bottom Banner

Kickstarter Weekly–April 4, 2014

4 04 2014

Hey everyone! We have some exciting news for you all! But we can’t tell you just yet! Such a let down, right?

Anyway, we’re going to jump in with this week’s Kickstarter Weekly, and there’s some cool stuff to check out from some of our favorite publishers and designers, so let’s get crackin’!

 

Featured Campaign!

storytellerStoryteller Cards: Fantasy – Jason Tagmire

Our good friend Jason Tagmire is back with another deck of Storyteller cards. Storyteller cards serve as a regular deck of playing cards, a creative tool, and a way to teach creativity to young gamers – think story dice. Along with the cards, your pledge will score you the Storyteller Manual–in PDF form, or as an add-on–that will have games designed by some fantastic designers specifically for the deck of cards you’ll be getting. The first game announced is Divvy In The Dungeon by the one and only Jason Kotarski, you may know him as the guy who designed a TOG favorite The Great Heartland Hauling Co. And who has a few more games hitting the market this year with Crash Games! With more to come, this campaign is super inexpensive to get into and packs a lot of potential; we think you should jump on board!

The campaign ends on April 24, and a pledge of $10 will get you a deck of your own! You can find all of the details right here!
