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: 

"Honestly it wasn't my thing in the past , but I'm pretty excited at the thought of it now. I think on the whole the industry has moved away from heavier games but the pendulum is starting to swing back. I'm also aware that Gurps is actually a whole spectrum of heaviness, but in my (admittedly perhaps wrong) perception it's one of the crunchiest.

So what does a new edition look like?"

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]

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.

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!

February 2, 2023: Wiz-War Kickstarter Ends Today

The doors to the magical labyrinth are closing today, so this is your last chance to back Wiz-War on Kickstarter! Our new edition of Tom Jolly's classic boardgame features art by the legendary Phil Foglio, with classic "take that!" gameplay curated from the eight previous editions by long-time Wiz-War fan Steve Jackson. For those wanting a closer look at the play and components, Steve joined us on #SJGamesLive for a playthrough that you can see on YouTube. Which wizard reigned supreme? You'll need to watch it to find out, but I can tell you there were a lot of large rocks thrown around. 

I'd also like to note that while this game will be going to retail stores later, it will definitely not be at $30 like on the Kickstarter, so . . . Back today, share it with your friends, and help Wiz-War finish strong!
