You are 50 miles from your final destination. You left western Massachusetts with a near-full tank of gas. You planned on refueling in southern Connecticut, but every station you’ve passed is empty. You surge forward into New York state. The opportunity to refuel decreases sharply with each exit you pass. Every few exits, the needle [...]

Next Monday, March 5, the Mobile Frame Zero: Rapid Attack Kickstarter will fire up! I’ll announce when that happens, of course, but in the meantime you can check out the new MFZ page!
I’m really excited about Dreamation this year. I’ll be running a couple of games of Mobile Frame Zero: Rapid Attack, some Shock:Human Contact, and in general playing with and enjoying the company of people I like and people I don’t yet know that I like.
So, the cat’s out of the bag. For the tenth (!) anniversary of Vincent Baker’s Mechaton, I’m working on Mobile Frame Zero: Rapid Attack. I’m working with Vincent, his son Sebastian, and Lego superstar Soren Roberts on a few new rules, a bunch of instructions, a setting, and a bunch of advice for both construction [...]
I’m very pleased to say that all Kodrek sets have now been sent! Some folks may have already gotten them. I’m really looking forward to hearing about peoples’ games — video some and show me! — and how they house rule the game. It’s designed with some deliberate flexibility and commentary on what taking advantage [...]
The 1.0 rules of Kodrek are complete! I’ll be sending boards out to all the Kodrek-level Kickstarter backers just as soon as printing is complete. The timing means that I’ll also be entering the game in the 1000 Year Game Challenge. It’s got some stiff competition! Kodrek is a game with a funny background. It comes [...]
Readercon is fucking rad. It’s a four-day literary science fiction convention in Burlington, MA (I didn’t know there was a Burlington in Massachusetts, either!), up route 128 where Autodesk and Adobe live. It’s the sun of the solar system of events that take place in Corey Doctrow’s Eastern Standard Tribe. It’s a miserable land of [...]
I just spent the last weekend at Connecticon with Emily Care Boss, Robert Bohl, Epidiah Ravachol, and a ton of really awesome people. Thousands of them, in fact. We played some games, sat on a couple of panels, and sold some games. Connecticon’s got a real concentration on making stuff. The costumes are ubiquitous, handmade, [...]
Want to see something neat? This is Scott Dunphy’s Contactor, Spooky Motion At A Distance. The game’s got some really neat features! The expedition has already failed once — they got to their intended colony, only to find it dead, with evidence that its inhabitants came from somewhere else! Does that mean that a Rectifier [...]
Hey, I like to talk a lot! Want to hear me talk about Shock:Human Contact? Listen to the first of the two parts! Want to talk listen to me talk about Kickstarter? Listen to part two!
