February 7, 2023: Hard-To-Find Munchkin Playmat Available Now
Our line of Munchkin playmats are notable for not only being popular accessories, but for helping to start our usage of neoprene playmats in other lines. You can find the influence in The Fantasy Trip and Car Wars with their larger play surfaces. But Munchkin playmats have been unavailable for quite some time . . . until now. We've found a stash of The Flower of Love playmats (with utterly charming art by Katie Cook) just in time for Valentine's Day! These mats feature spots for all your loot, plus a special rule specific to each playmat.There might be enough to go around, but supplies are limited. If you want this beauty, make sure to get it soon!
Orders are open now, so go ahead and pick one for your sweetheart (or yourself)!Share this post!
February 6, 2023: Aquarium And "Ocean" Dice At Warehouse 23
The Nanogames: Aquarium and Eat Thy Neighbor pocket games have been released at Warehouse 23 in print and PDF. These two games are detailed in a credit card-sized package that, when opened, expands to an 11.82" wide by 9.21" tall double-sided poster. The two games are perfect for use with the "ocean" dice series we've released over the last few months, but each of the two games can also be played with standard six-sided dice.
If you're searcing for our "ocean" dice line, you can find all six sets at your local game store. Or, if you don't have a local store, the six packs of dice are now available at our online store, Warehouse 23.

February 5, 2023: GURPS "New Edition" Chatter At RPG.Net
After the TikTok video asking about a possible new edition of GURPS went a little wild (see this Daily Illuminator post), the internet took action. We've seen discussions in a few different places, but I'd like to direct your attention to this thread at RPG.Net where forum user theuglyknight posts:
Not surprisingly, the discussion goes in several different directions, but it makes for an entertaining read if you're interested in thoughts on what could possibly happen if there were a new edition of GURP . . . [more]Share this post!
February 4, 2023: The Original Mimic?
The "mimic" type of monster has seen an upsurge in popularity recently. Most typically disguising itself as a treasure chest, the mimic might also be a chair, a doorknob . . . or anything else that some unwary delver might touch.
So who thought of this evil beastie?
I just ran across a story that might depict the original fictional Mimic. It's "The Stentorii Luggage," by Neal Barrett, Jr. – and it appeared in Galaxy Magazine in 1960! So Barrett may have intellectual priority on the idea. And, regardless, it is a great story.Share this post!
February 3, 2023: Steve Talks Car Wars With Three Ravens
Late in 2022, we announced our partnership with Three Ravens Publishing for new fiction in the Car Wars universe. Steve was recently on their TDB Pirate Radio podcast talking autoduelling! Steve (and Irene) joined a panel of talented creatives to talk Car Wars Sixth Edition and the origins of Car Wars as a universe, as well as a variety of other topics concerning writing and world-building. If you're interested in the creative process that goes into writing and game design, this has some great insights, as well as a fun conversation with a lot of nerdy folk. Check it out on their YouTube page, and keep an eye out later this year for the Autoduel Chronicles!
