Get Some Used Games for Charity!

Labyrinth’s Annual Used Game Sale is just around the corner, like this weekend, July 28-29! Not familiar? At the beginning of this month, a bunch of people (including myself) donated some of games to be auctioned off at the end of this month. Some of the ways this aids the local community is helping buy games for local teachers and help fund Labyrinth’s school aftercare program & demo library.

They raised over $4,700 last year and hopefully they can bring in even more this year. They get a crazy amount of games and even sealed games. Some notable games I’ve heard them offing is HeroQuest w/expansion fully painted, Near & Far sealed, Twilight Imperium 4 sealed, Xenoshyft Dreadmire, and thousands more. So there are plenty of good stuff to be found.

More details? Hit the jump!

Coriolis Beginning Updated

You might be scratching your head on this one. How can someone update an RPG session that has already played out? Well the simple answer is that I updated the prologue/intro of session. New recording, new audio levels, new tweaks, same story. It might be a touch quicker as well. I wasn’t satisfied with how it originally sounded but was in a rush to get it up. Now it is better.

It isn’t a new file, I just replaced the file on SoundCloud and crossed my fingers that it filtered through to all the other locations that can access it, though it is written out on the “prologue” page.

Hit the jump if you’d like to stream it now!

Drinks Up, Fancy Game Time?

I don’t know about you, but I typically think of wine being more on the fancy side of the adult beverages. Doesn’t mean you can’t have fun with them. That’s why NTBG will be doing some events at our local Urban Winery! Not a fan of wine? Don’t worry, they have beer, mead, cider, and non-alcoholic beverages. There are also some food. should you get hungry.

Our first event will be Tuesday, April 17 at 7pm. Be sure to RSVP on the MeetUp if you are planning to attend.

Fireball Island is Coming SOON to a Kickstarter Near You!


The Kickstarter is coming tomorrow (April 3), and that looks kind of like a monster. I’ve talked about this game before a few times and now it is about ready to go. Might be a great thing to have on the table, let’s hope it ramps up the gameplay a touch from the original expansion.

Be on the lookout for the KS. More pictures and goodies to look at including four expansions (because of course!) will be available at launch. $60 for base game and $130 for everything.

Coriolis Updates Coming In

Coriolis: The Third Horizon will feature a revolving cast of characters as the RPG Drama progresses. When jobs are taken, new player characters will appear. And when they are finished, they will wander off and live their own life. They won’t be gone (unless they want to die) and will potentially, and probably, return later.

That said, I will be updating the Coriolis page to reflect the crew aboard The Ransom as well as friendly NPCs that are important and sticking around. Eventually I’ll get the layout and image of The Random itself.
