2013 Holiday Gift Guide—Family Games

9 12 2013

Family Games is kind of a hard category. I mean, if you’re playing a kids game, is that a family game, too? What about families with young kids, or older kids, or no kids? Basically, these are games that we play with our families, but that aren’t designed specifically as kids games. And our kids are between the ages of 5 and 9, so the games will skew that way.

Kickstarter Weekly—Nov. 22, 2013

22 11 2013

Wow, it’s been a crazy week for us here at TOG, and things have gotten away from us!

So, without further ado we’re going to jump into this week’s Kickstarter Weekly!

Most likely these games won’t be making it under your Christmas tree this year, (seeing as how a lot of these campaigns don’t even end until after Christmas), but it ever hurts to plan ahead for… ya know… Valentines Day, Arbor Day, Memorial Day…. Or, well, you get what we’re saying…

So let’s jump in!

Featured Campaign

Hold your breathHold Your Breath – Mayday Games

In this, the third and final installment in the Get Bit trilogy, players are once again playing as some less than intelligent pirates who have just gone overboard in “Walk the Plank!”. This campaign is going gangbusters and there are a few stretch goals unlocked with more on the way! 

You can get in on this one for $18 to get a copy shipped to your door. The campaign ends Dec. 21 and you can check it out here!
