Sean's been working on a little RPG called "Heist" for awhile now and recently he got to show it off to the fine folks at Board with Life by running a game for them on their podcast. You should check it out!
That's right, at Origins this year we're giving away a free game to people with a coupon from the coupon book. We'll also be giving away one free card per day to help augment that set even more! In fact, we just got the printed cards in the mail today. Unfortunately, we ran into a small problem... check out the video to see what happened!
Sean and I have been doing interviews with podcasters. We're trying to do promotional work for our upcoming game Two Rooms and a Boom. Now I've done plenty of interviews before without a problem. I'm also not one to suffer from stage fright. In fact, I was a paid actor for the Cleveland Playhouse for years, donning many roles. I've also met several celebrities throughout my time on this planet. I spent time with Ultimate Fighters (Chuck Liddell, Tito Ortiz), I,ve been pitied by Mr. T, I shook hands with the late Gary Coleman (he wasn't dead at the time), met the mighty Bruce Campbell, and conversed with Paul Walker on the streets of L.A. My point is, I've been trained and practice in the art of preventing social anxiety, and I am certainly not prone to being star-struck.
So, there is no denying that I'm a Kickstarter addict. I've never been the addictive type, or so I thought... until I started using Kickstarter. I probably pledge on at least one project a day. Instead of reading the morning news, I check out Kickstarter projects. While I'm concentrating on the toilet, I've got my iPad on my fuzzy lap as I peruse the Games section of Kickstarter. Every morning, I wake up, check me email, check BoardGameGeek, check out Facebook... and then I go through the Ending Soon category of Kickstarter. For some reason, I feel like I lost if an awesome looking projects ends without having viewed it.
