November 30, 2022: Fantasy NPCs On Kickstarter

Some of you have been asking whether we are still moving forward with the Squarescape project. You bet we are. In fact, a photo session is scheduled for next week and I'll be sure to share some of the results. Dry ice may be involved. Spooooooky mist, anyone?

Since this is a terrain project, we'll need a variety of figures and props for the photography. Here's where some of them are coming from. I've backed this beautiful campaign at an All In level and happily recommend it to your attention. The sculptures are wonderful and the creator, Rafael Moreno Dominguez, is enthusiastic and communicates well. I'm a fan!

November 29, 2022: Learn Zombie Dice With "Watch It Played!"

First published in 2010, Zombie Dice has been one of our top sellers for well over a decade. The game started out during walks through Madison and went through a number of versions before Steve finalized the design of the game as you know it today. I can still remember one of the earliest playtest sessions where the dice draws were not random; Steve had structured the rules so that each player could select which difficulty of dice to throw on their turn. We soon found that the blind draw, the randomness of chance, made for a far more engaging and exciting experience.

If you have friends who have yet to discover the fun of pushing their luck just a little too far in Zombie Dice, then I highly recommend this tutorial video from Watch It Played! The video breaks down every step of the game and makes it easy to introduce new players to the fun of chasing down and consuming brains.

November 27, 2022: Cthulhu D6 Dice Set Second Printing Now Available

First released in 2019, the 19mm six-sided die design included in the Cthulhu d6 Dice Set pre-dates the official release by several years. We created the steel tooling for this design all the way back in 2012/2013 when we were hard at work on the Ogre Designer's Edition. The die saw limited release in the years after the design was first completed, but it wasn't until the first printing of the Cthulhu d6 Dice Set in 2019 that the dice found their way to a wider audience.

Earlier this year, we brought a second printing of the Cthulhu d6 Dice Set into the warehouse and it is available right now to friendly local game stores around the world. If you want to add this pack of six 19mm dice to your collection, please visit your local game store today. If you do not have a local store, you can always find the dice at our online store, Warehouse 23, as well as at and other online . . . [more]

November 26, 2022: You Can Skip This If You Hate Dad Jokes

We all understand that Frodo, his spirit wounded by the One Ring he carried, made a poor moral choice when the time came to dispose of the deadly bauble, and if not for the faithful Sam Gamgee things might have gone very differently.

So, suppose Sam had simply followed his master's lead? Suppose that he and Frodo had turned away from the molten fissure and used the powers of the Ring, and the lesser magics they had acquired, to wander around the Dark Lands, simply killing Orcs and the other creatures of Sauron for the XP.

What would we call them then? Not heroes.


Wait for it . . .


Wait some more . . .
