Spotted: Earthshaker & Old Kuma!

Dipping through the interwebs and I notice that Jonathan over at GeekDad has upped some City of Kings piccys from GenCon 2018. Thank you Jonathan!

GenCon, along with Essen in Germany, Airecon in Mother Ireland, and UKGamesExpo in rainy England are the places where designers and creators go to hang out and show off prototypes as much as sell any games.

Crazy things can be spotted, along with the downright eeeevil:

Vurt: RPG up for an ENnie!!

Ahhhhh…. Alexander and Lee should be stupendously proud of this one. Their game, VURT:the RPG (which I had a small tinkering with, much to their distraction) has been nominated for a ‘Best Game’ award of 2018, meaning it’s up there alongside Blades in the Dark and the Delta Green RPG reboot!

Tears of victory, my friends…

The ENnie Award voting booth is now live over here.

And Vurt:the RPG and Ravendesk Game Studios can be found over here.

I’m wishing all the best to the team for all the fantastic hard work they’ve put in, on what I know has been a multi-year dream project for them. It might have looked impossible to bring the surreal, postmodern worlds of Jeff Noon to the gaming table – but you guys did it, and in style.



In case you haven’t heard, there’s a convention-thingy going on somewhere near Birmingham XD

The City of Games and my boss, Mr. Frank, will be there with Boardgame Geek’s most-anticipated game of 2018 The City of Kings, as well as mini-game Vadoran Gardens, art books, and all sorts of loot. You might even get to see these new additions, as well;

Day-tickets are still available for today and tomorrow, and The City will in Hall 1 (stand D4). Go say hi!

And if that stonking great Earthshaker miniature at the back isn’t enough to entice you, then look thee at this; Ian Livingstone’s going to be there as well – the co-creator of Games Workshop and of course, the epic Fighting Fantasy gamebooks.
