The Most Dangerous Games – A Conversation With…KeyMaster Games about Campy Creatures

In this Most Dangerous Games episode I talk to Jennifer Graham-Macht of KeyMaster Games about their game, Campy Creatures. This is a ghoulish trick taking game of deception and bluffing about mad scientists and their creatures capturing citizens for nefarious purposes. The game is getting a second edition and an expansion so wanted to get the lowdown on these and about KeyMaster Games. Here’s the link to the Kickstarter page. As always thank you for listening!

Lesson #23 – Getting A Struggling Kickstarter Campaign to Fund

Hello everyone, I am back! So I am so sorry but it has been almost a year since my last blog post. I am so sorry about that! Between being extremely busy and not being sure exactly what to write about, I definitely dropped the ball on this blog. If you have been following along, this past May I launched a campaign for our latest game called The Neverland Rescue. The game was designed by well-known superstar designer Scott Almes and it was beautifully illustrated by the extremely talented Jacqui Davis.

So are they legit ‘reviews’ since the game and components could change in production?
