At the end of a YouTube video released on April 5th, Jamey Stegmaier of Stonemaier Games, very quietly announced his new game. For someone who, in the space of three games, has gone from publishing a sleeper hit to a juggernaut, I find it surprising (and awesomely cool) that Jamey appears to have chosen such a low key way to reveal the first details of his (and, I assume, Alan Stone’s) hotly awaited next game.

It’s been a long time coming but you can finally download the official Kickstarter Android app.
Unlike a lot of websites that work fine in a regular mobile web browser, Kickstarter via an app is a much smoother and more pleasurable experience, and now Android users can join the party! Version 1.0 of the Kickstarter Android app is available from today via the Google Play Store, following on the heels of the iOS app after an inexplicable wait of 3 years. Read More
By some miracle, Great Scott! is in the running for two categories in BoardGameGeek.com’s “20 Most Anticipated Board Games of 2016” poll.
It’s actually not a miracle at all because a) there is no such thing, and b) several very nice people answered my previous call and voted for Great Scott! to get on the list in the first place. Either way, the final round of voting is now underway, and ends on Sunday, January 24th. There are some true juggernauts on the list this year (can you say “Scythe”?), but it would be amazing to see my little game make a decent showing for itself. Read More
Hey there – long time no see! So in-between my web design work, I’ve been hacking away at getting the files for the Great Scott! cards finalised. I’m *this* close to ordering a proof copy of the core game from DriveThru Cards, but I figured there was nothing stopping me from making a Print ‘n’ Play version of the game, so that’s exactly what I’ve done!

UPDATE: All three of these campaigns funded successfully – how good is that?!
Board game cafés are very thin on the ground in the UK right now, but then three come along all at once! Check out these UK board game cafés looking for funding on Kickstarter right now. If you’re anywhere near Preston, Exeter, or Portsmouth, these are well worth a look. Read More
Euphoria – How To Play
Channel: Watch It Played
Rodney talks us through the basics of playing Stonemaier Games’ dystopian worker placement game, Euphoria, and by crikey, someone had to! Euphoria designer Jamey Stegmaier is recommending this video over the ones on his own channel. Euphoria’s board is somewhat intimidating, but Rodney breaks everything down & makes learning the game much more palatable. Euphoria is in my small collection of ‘purchased but not played’ games, but thanks to this video, not for too much longer.
This post marks a milestone: there have been no major changes to Great Scott! since the last time I wrote about it. Wonders will never cease.
I thought I’d make a short post with a playtest report for the current version of Great Scott!. The good people at Lincoln’s premier comics & tabletop games store gave me some table space at one of their weekly boardgaming nights, and I spent four hours watching people play the game. Read More
Dave talks to Kim Brebach of Secret Base Games about his current Kickstarter project, Monstrous. Kim is very active on various Facebook groups and is extremely generous with the information he shares about the tabletop games industry, particularly on the subjects of shipping and Kickstarter.

You know what I was saying in my last post in this series about how the direction of a game can turn on a dime while it’s in development, and that Great Scott! was now a co-operative game? Well yeah, that. But not that. Read More
