November Double Bill!

Our students are heavily into werewolf/mafia style games so weve been playing around with some ideas in the club.

This month we are releasing The Cult – a Sandbrook themed version of the classic Werewolf game and The Bunker – where dwindling supplies and frequent raids make surviving difficult in the wasteland. Currently being finished off and will be released later this month.

You can download the games, and all our games from our Patreon page (because it offers free hosting!) Here

Patrons see our early works in progress and more – were currently not charging Patrons either – so there’s never been a better time to sign up!

Want to support us, but dont want to sign up to Patreon? See our educational materials and ebooks here, or buy the club some snacks here.

Playtesting extra: Tatorship

Today we had a go playing a guest game in development: Tatorship by MakerofGames

Tatorship rules

Checking the rules

Once we had worked out the rules we dug straight into a 3 player game – Russia, China and America in the runnings!

Russia gets a good deal of force to play with, and America gets cash. 

Putin on the Ritz - game in play

Following this World War Potato broke out – leaving Putin the winner with 42 force to 38. A third player ended with 20 and was knocked out of the war quickly.

With a clear winner with 8 Tatorpoints we called it a day. 

It was a fun game with a good theme however:

  • We couldn’t quite work out from the rules what the real difference between force, potatoes(?) And money was. We just ended up swapping them for influence.
  • We couldn’t quite work out what was needed for some of the parts such as getting into power
  • We didnt understand the rule on buying laws
  • The Edward snowden cards didn’t seem to have a place so we left them out.
  • We thought having actual counters rather than penciling numbers worked better and was more fun

Overall it was fun and led to some good stories, but would definitely take some of the “fluff” out.

Free Cards: Photography Cards – free Print and Play

Hi all!

Heres something I made some years ago and thought I would make into a print and play for anyone who wants to use them.

Once printed you should choose one randomly each day to encourage you to take a different kind of photograph each day (or several if you like!).

Wildlife photography of a deer

The cards also have a set of five different areas / types to photograph such as creative , landscape etc shots, that you can use to help find a good shot.

Photography helper card

The card back also remind you what the icons mean at any time – so go and take some good photos!

Let us know how you get on! You can download them for free here: Photography cards

You can also see the cards below:
