extralifeHey gang, we shared a few weeks ago that I (Jeremiah) will be hosting a 24-hour game marathon to support the Children’s Miracle Network of Hospitals. I’d like to invite you once more, if you are local to the Northeast Ohio area (or feel like making a road trip) I’ll be playing games from 8:00 AM this Saturday (Nov. 2) until 8:00 AM Sunday (Nov. 3)! I’m working on a few surprises and maybe a give away or two for the day as well! I’ll keep filtering info to you as the week goes on so be sure to check back!

Kickstarter Weekly, Oct. 21, 2013

28 10 2013

Last week was a busy one here at TOG! Essen was in full swing (and we weren’t there), but there have been lots of goings-on over on Kickstarter, and we’re here to highlight a few campaigns this week, and also hear from you about the games you’re backing! So let’s get started!

Featured Campaign!

Brew CraftersBrew Crafters: A Board Game About Making Beer – Dice Hate Me Games

There are some games that thematically aren’t what you’d call my (Jeremiah’s) cup of tea… or beer, wait, how does that work?
Anyway, we’ve been blown away by some great games that didn’t necessarily have a theme that we fell in love with. (Heartland Hauling, and Viticulture come to mind) But at the end of the day, superb gameplay won us over. The buzz around Brew Crafters has been solid and positive for months now, and it’s finally on Kickstarter. This Euro style board game packs an American theme, and the classic Dice Hate Me Games visual design that we’ve grown to love.

They should hit their funding goal TODAY they’re so close!

A $60 pledge get’s you a copy of the game sent to your door and the campaign closes on Nov. 24. You can get more details about the game, and upcoming stretch goals, right here!

Ultimate Werewolf: Inquisition—A Review

WerewolfCoverBy Firestone

I’ve never been a big Mafia/Werewolf fan. It can be an incredibly fun time, but the player elimination means some people are always sitting on the sidelines waiting. And the bigger the game, the longer you’re waiting… So when The Resistance came out—and there was no player elimination—I jumped at it. And it’s now my favorite game.

Ted Alspach and Bezier Games recently released Ultimate Werewolf: Inquisition, which promises some of the hidden roles and gameplay of Werewolf, with no player elimination. I’m intrigued. Will it knock The Resistance off the throne? Let’s see…
