    A pair of old six-sided diceIn the fall of 1984, during a layoff from General Electric, I sold a “capsule review” to Space Gamer magazine. A month later they accepted my “Mind Duel” board game. Within a year, I was working full-time as a designer and editor for GDW, then TSR, with a bit of freelance for FASA, West End, and Flying Buffalo. While I now work days in educational publishing, the game-design bug continues to bite.

    SuperPower SmackDown biz card

    Here’s a quick glance at SuperPower SmackDown business cards we’ll (SFR, Inc., and I) be giving out at Gen Con and elsewhere next month.

    I’d just like to add that as a result of play-tests at Quincon last weekend, it’s now a game for two or more players (not merely two).

    My iTouchI’ve added a one-only backer reward to the d6xd6 CORE RPG Kickstarter:


    For that pledge, someone will receive:

    • a signed full-color hardbound and ebook of the game;
    • their character somewhere in the text;
    • their name in the credits;
    • six Kickstarter-exclusive CORE RPG dice;
    • six fanged smiley promo dice;
    • one online role-playing playtest session with up to five friends;
    • one copy of every book, ebook, and card game currently in the PopcornPress.com catalog; and
    • my used 4th gen 8GB iPod Touch—with my name and Web site URL engraved on the back—to carry all those ebooks in!
