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 =)
Let's go back to a time where the most valuable thing was rocks. Your favorite game was rock chucking (or Chuck Rock) And your house was made totally from Rock (until it rolled down the hill...get it? Rock & Roll)
In this video, I delve into a cave to find out if this old fossil (if you consider 2008 as a long time ago) is worth playing...
Workers, building and baby making fun
Hello Chaps and Chapettes,
If you didn't know me better, than you know me all ready, then you're gonna know me a lot better now...
I am a transparent, almost invisible, open person. I like to say what is on my mind, without hurting anyone's feelings. And that is a hard thing to do. And it hurts me, not to post a video on a regular basis, as I have been doing since running my Patreon. But I have been playing this "Game of Life" thing, which must be a legacy style of game, because there are now too many rules, which is preventing me from reaching my goal.
You see, I have been rolling the dice, which do not give me the results I need. Hampering the resources I need to expand my castle. "Player 2" has been sent to the Druids because of "player 4" is trying to join in the game, a phase too early. This has complicate the game, because no I have to complete her objectives as we as my own, and make regular trips to the Druid space. "Player 3" is unsure of the rules and so I am hand holding her through the game, while trying to do the work I have to do. So the game has become concluded, and the other players are relying on me to get them through...Therefore, no video reviews.
This may go on for a number of rounds, but hopefully, I should be able to get some of my jobs done.
Good news is, I have a big stack of work and things for you to see,very soon. Including this Kickstater...
I don't want you to worry for me. Everything is fine. There is just too many thing going on at the same time, that my little (man) brain (and body) is having trouble getting through this game. So bare with me as I continue to read the rule book and get mine and the other players engines running smoothly.
Ciao for now
Watch your back as your friend may want to stick a knife in it...
This is a game about being sneaky and being cautious. Are you a King or an Assassin?
A simple, two player, back and forth game, that my daughter enjoys. As do I. A game that captures the Assassin Creed experience in a short time, with a simple rule set, that you'll pick up in no time.
We be doin' some treasure hunin', on an island. But it ain't as easy as it sounds. Let me take you to Tobago, see if you can find a treasure there...
Reverse deduction will help players locate the position of treasure, then it's a race to dig it up...And THEN, a good memory is required to "push your luck," to take your share (if you helped in locating.)
Recently I had a bit of time, (which is rare because of all the banging going on) to do a live blog. As I have been reading comment about gamers wanting to change the rules of their games, before even getting them! Which blew my mind...
...But as I thought about it, I realized that I do the same!!!
Do you change the rules for games?
Leave me a comment on what instances you change the rules of a game and why...
Do you have fiery fingertips? Do you like skating away from the hall monitor? Then this could be the dexterity game for you...
A dexterity game that doesn't take itself too seriously. Has some cool, penguin pieces. And an appeal to all ages.
Flicking, stunt shots and fish included
I was delighted to be offered the chance to compose a soundtrack. Even if it was for a small printing of a game, with epic scope.
The designing team at Serious Poulp, kindly ask of me to create a theme tune and help add sustenance to their game, in the form of sound. So, I quickly jumped at the chance, after scoring a soundtrack, for my personal pleasure. In this edition of the Double-Back Monthly, I interview myself about the project. (Man! that sounds strange) Talk about how I got the job, and you can hear some extracts too...
