Hello Chaps and Chapettes,
Here is an update on all things BGES. (me)
Life Update: Lots of carnage and chaos going on here. But all will be fine, in the end. In a few days time, I will be flying out to the UK Gaming Expo in Birmingham, to work...
I have been hired by Monolith Editions (a French game publisher) to run demos of their next Kickstarter, Batman the Boardgame. In fact, the designer, Frederic Henry popped over for a coffee the other day and went through all the rules, ready for the Expo.
Check out my facebook video of us playing :
I will take my camera and document as much as I can, from the event. And give you a overview in my next Double-Back Monthly...which will be late, due to being away. Sorry.
Player 4 should be arriving soon too, although his has no bedroom...ahhh! Well, we have a bedroom, but no windows. Hopefully, they come before he does. And he comes before I go.
Gaming Update: I have not played much. I have demoed “Clash of Rage” a few time around the area and played “Outlive” solo. It works, but I'd rather play with other players with this game. Also got to try out “Spoils of War” from Arcane Wonders. A bluffing game, where players are bidding on the number of dice with the same value. And the highest bidder gets to take more treasure than the other players who guessed correctly to. Special powers from artifacts will help screw the other players over and collecting sets of items will gain you extra points. An enjoyable, party style game. Looking forward to the next time I get to play.
Video reviews will be returning sometime next month. When normality returns...
(this is me we're talking about!)

Things are very busy here in France. Even in my home. Playing games is a wonderful pastime and fills a hole of adventure and fun that can be missing from your life.
Playing games has let me meet new people, make friends and expand the fun factor in my life. Sometime I meet publishers and designers, admire their work and critic little bugs. Monolith and Frédéric Henry are some of those that I have encountered. They have recently shown me one of the next projects that they are working at. Let me play and even asked me to help. So here I am, helping out the way I always do...with an informative video.
This is the time, that I will rhyme,
About a game, that I did gain,
From a chapette, who is kind, I bet,
But, is it good? A game everybody should...
Children's games come in all forms. Manly dexterity games, where your balancing animals on each other or pulling crud out of someones nose. Or they are little roll and move, rapidity game. This is the only rhyming game that I know (apart form the playground "Kelly is smelly" type) which uses a heavy mechanic. But is it your child's cup of lemonade?
A big thanx to Elephantgirl for sending me this to me =)
