There are just over 24 hours left on my latest Kickstarter project, the Tinker Gearcoins.  We started with 3 coins on offer and 7 moulds ready to go for stretch goals… and we’re up to 15 coins and a lapel pin (to make one of them a miniature astrolabe).  I might try to make another one purely as an Add On.

So… things have gone well.  Thank you all for your help, and if you’ve a moment, please spread the word!

The campaign is here:

And some photos are over on Pinterest:

Oh, and we have the Havok & Hijinks coins up for sale over on our storefront.  We made these as a part of a crossover with Ferrel‘s card game Kickstarter.  It’s a sweet little game, and the coins work well as dragon treasure.

We’ll have more stuff up on the store eventually.  Since I’m officially unemployed and jobs are scarce, I’m trying to scrape things together to try to make my own products work.

Thanks!

(And yes, I’ll have a non Kickstarter post up later this week.  I’ve had ideas, I’m just really busy with too many things.)

Zomblobs! is finally in a playable state!   It’s a tabletop tactical wargame, played on a map with hexagonal cells, miniatures (folded paper for this version) and six-sided dice.  It’s the beta, so it’s not yet precisely balanced or perfectly presentable, but it’s playable!  (If you print out the PDF and prepare some paper, anyway.)

I’ve worked long enough in the game industry to believe that game testers are the last line of defense between a working game and a broken one.  There’s definitely more polishing I want to do before I call Zomblobs! an alpha-release-worthy product, but it’s in a state where the game will benefit greatly from playtesting and experimentation.

Polishing can be pretty prickly

If you all have the time to at least read through the rules and give me some feedback, I’d greatly appreciate it.  If you have time to print out the game and play it for a while, I’d really love to hear what you think of it.

Many thanks for your interest!  I’ll be writing more articles on the game, especially if there’s something important to address that I haven’t yet covered in my previous articles.

Consume or be consumed!

For Science!

UPDATED!

Now, in convenient just-under-19 MB size!  It’s a bit JPEGgy, but that’s just how the Zomblob crumbles.

…and, because commenter “ironshield” down there has a very good point on printing, here’s the exact same data split into a “text” file and an “extras” file, just in case you want them that way.
