Recognition for getting in early

March 8, 2017

Kickstarter loves an early adopter. From early bird pledge levels in projects through to those who are first to contribute to their special campaigns.

It’s Games Hack time.

March 6, 2017

I love creating games from scratch. It’s fun and cool. More to the point, it’s exercising creative urges.

Since April Fools Day falls on a Saturday this year I have secured permission from Vince at Asgard Games to use his shop for a few hours to undertake a Games Hack. Working from a brief or inspiration, teams and individuals can compete on the day to create the best basic game in two hours.

You can find out more and sign up here.

Do come down and join us for some fun. It’s 8 quid ont he door but you have to sign up via the Kickstarter to confirm your place, otherwise we don’t have any cash to pay for the venue and materials.

Hurrah!

PS: Any suggestion that we might have to retire to a local public house to play test the games afterwards is going to get nothing but support from me.


Defining Success

September 9, 2016

This is not an inspirational post. Or at least, not intended to be. I’m hardly disadvantaged by my own estimation.

But I wanted to acknowledge and celebrate a little milestone. I had an e-mail from Kickstarter this week congratulating me because exactly a year ago I’d successfully concluded the campaign for No Dice, and it was fully funded.

Bear in mind the average Kickstarter project might take months or years to set up, run for a month and then take another few months to even get off the ground properly let alone send out all the rewards and so forth. Read the rest of this entry »


Shipping and Selling

June 15, 2016

Nearly all the 60 decks have shipped now. Two to the Antipodes, nearly a dozen to the land of the free and the home of the brave. A familiar chap from my previous Kickstarter in Denmark and a couple of Dutch backers, and the obligatory UK crowd. Over thirty backers in total, ranging from a gent who just wanted a postcard to one backer who ordered four decks.

I’m very happy to say that I had some extra decks from the Kickstarter left, and I’ve put a few in Asgard Games at the standard Kickstarter price of £15. They are the last of the first edition. Get them while they’re in stock!

Only a week to go…

May 6, 2016

I apologise in advance if this sounds like a sales pitch. It isn’t.

Next Friday the Kickstarter for my second crowd-funded game closes. It’s funded already, and further pledges are pushing the campaign closer and closer towards the first stretch goal which unlocks alternative artwork. Read the rest of this entry »


60 – The new Kickstarter launches with remarkable kick-off

April 25, 2016

It’s been a while since I risked every ounce of my professional reputation (nothing) on the roll of No Dice, and I’d been working on a new game in the last few months. Finally I managed to get my stuff together and launch this weekend. What a beginning!

Pushing the Envelope

January 1, 2016

After the relative success of No Dice, it seemed the right time to admit I’d already been working on an expansion deck.

It’s available only by pre-order, for which the address is given on the No Dice blog. I admit I’m having fun being a captain of industry, albeit on a small scale.

All the rewards have been shipped from the original Kickstarter and the remainder of stock has been selling slowly but surely. If you’d like a regular deck of No Dice please let me know.
