Fairway sits down with publisher and designer, Kirk Dennison, about his current Kickstarter: Gearworks. The Gearworks campaign has a little more than week left.
It’s January in Wisconsin, not exactly prime smoothie season. But, today, Fairway takes a look at a recent Kickstarter delivery from Thunderworks Games: Blend Off! See if Fairway can keep up with the orders in this fast-paced, dice-rolling game.
Fairway gets a lot of games and he’s played a lot more. This very special list of games are the three Kickstartered games of 2016 that have left more than just a fleeting impression.
Fairway returned from Protospiel Madison having played a bunch of prototype games from a lot of up and coming game designers. Some of these designers were kind enough to let him feature their games in this round up of games.
Remember the fun of making your character in games like Skyrim? “Hey you, you’re finally awake; You were trying to cross the border right? Walked right into that Imperial ambush same as us, and that thief over there.” ~ Raloff, from Skyrim. And then five and half minutes later, you finally get to pick your race! Grr… Well, forget loading times and movie sequences. Fairway’s skipping all that frustration and is going play Roll Player, a recent Kickstarter delivery from by Keith Matejka and Thunderworks Games, instead.
In this edition of Meeple Speak, we welcome guest writer Keith Matejka designer of Bullfrogs, where he reflects back on the project and shares with us the lessons he learned from Bullfrogs.
