Hi all! Here’s our roundup of this week’s progress, playtesting, what’s available and what’s coming soon. Stay tuned!
On Monday there will be a special update with free print and play downloads and further updates to our Patreon!
What have we been doing this week?
Emotions version 1.0 card game, colouring and literacy books release.
Emotions has been released, a quick matching game for all ages with vocabulary descriptions and cute artwork. See here.
Emotions is available for download for all Patreon Subscribers or from the TES store. If you get it from the TES store you also get the eBook of the colouring book free!
Emotions Colouring book – Click here!
Update: Now available on Amazon! Check it out here!
Patreon changes to early access
We’re moving to a free print and play model as a company. More details to come soon but you’ll soon be seeing monthly completed downloadable games here on the site! Get your printers ready!
Please do consider signing up for even just $1 a month helps keep the tabletop club running as much as possible, especially during the autumn and winter months!
With the release of Emotions it makes sense to make some changes to our Patreon model. We’ve changed from a ‘pay at the end’ model to monthly. In practice this means I can budget any income for the club each month alongside any paid resources from the TES store into improving the club for our students as well as printing copies of our educational / mental health resources for local schools. Its not much at the moment but it all helps keep it running! Please do consider joining us on our quest here and get early access and discounts on our games, resources etc.
Instagram and Facebook initialisation
We have revently opened a page on facebook and an Instagram. Check us out and follow us for the latest information and updates!

Sins of Satan / Demon Controller: Beta 0.8b.
A social deduction game in the likes of Avalon, Secret Hitler, Warewolf etc. Players try to play either sins or virtues, with corresponding effects for each. There are more virtuous players than demons, and more virtue cards in the pack, but players need to work together if they are going to prevent the demons from winning and taking control.
There is also a new quick paced tile collection game in the works in the same theme.
0.8 available to download to Patrons!

SS Sandbrook 0.8a

Sandbrook Heist! 0.4b
A quick social deduction card game. 0.4 updates and standardises the characters, makes the cat burglar more effective and introduces a final character “Herr Doctor”, a kind of evil doctor that can both harm and help the Mastermind.
Cat Academy Battle 0.7: a fun, fast mix and match game about getting the best Cat you can. Players match adjectives to their Cat cards to earn the most points they can in a round. In Battle! Mode, players also fight for their team – friendly or ferocious.
Evolve! Pre-alpha stage.
Tranquility Station: More info here. Pre-alpha stage. Old TTS link.
A note on game versions, alphas, betas etc.
Alpha means it is in a playable state, but either untested or needs a lot of work.
Beta means it is playable and has been well playtested, but requires some additional work or finishing off.

0.0 – 0.4: Game is in early stages.
0.4 – 0.7: Game has been well Playtesting but requires work.
0.8 – 0.9: Game is in the final stages of completion, usually lacking final editing, artwork etc.
1.0: Game is completed and released. “Free for all” games will have a blog entry with download. Others will be available to download through Patreon as completed.
