Interviewed by Plus or Minus Podcast

Recently I was honored to be interviewed by Troy Truchon of the Plus or  Minus Podcast, the world’s first Fudge RPG-specific podcast. We talked about accessibility in the tabletop games industry, Psi-punk, Monster Kart Mayhem, and Fudge in general.

You can listen to the podcast via the embeded player below, but I would encourage you to visit Plus or Minus and check out their back catalog as well. This podcast receives the distinction of being the one and only podcast I have ever followed for more than five episodes in a stretch.

MKM Nominated for a Golden Geek Award, Print Edition Update

First thing’s first…

I’m super excited to announce that Monster Kart Mayhem was nominated for one of BoardGameGeek’s Golden Geek Awards! It has been nominated for Best RPG of 2014 and is up against such titans as Dungeons and Dragons 5th Edition, the Firefly RPG, and AMP: Year One. It may be the underdog in this race, but I know it’ll put on a good show.

You can help Monster Kart Mayhem (and AMP: Year One, because that game is amazing) by heading over to BoardGameGeek to vote.

Secondly, I received the first proof copy of the Monster Kart Mayhem print edition. The book is gorgeous, and my wife’s first impression is that it looks even better in print than it does on the screen. I wouldn’t argue.

Unfortunately, there are just enough issues with the proof that I need to fix it and send … Continue reading

That’s the sound of Monster Kart Mayhem nearing its availability as a print-on-demand product. I’m ordering proofs today and should have my copy within two weeks. Assuming everything looks good in the printed proof copy, I’ll approve it for sale as a print-on-demand product at DriveThruRPG.

Some of you have expressed interest in having printed copies of MKM available, so it’s exciting to be able to tell you these will be coming soon. Hopefully by the end of February you’ll be able to get your very own.

Unfortunately we didn’t make it to the Monstrous Edition stretch goal as part of the Monster Kart Mayhem Kickstarter, so this is just the core book right now. Anyone who has purchased a copy of MKM will receive a coupon … Continue reading

Monster Kart Monday #21: Success!

This entry is part 21 of 21 in the seriesMonster Kart Monday

This entry is part 21 of 21 in the series Monster Kart Monday

The Monster Kart Mayhem Kickstarter campaign ended last night, and we had a successful run. With the help of 49 amazing backers, we reached 167% of our initial goal to end at a total of $1669.

We landed just shy of our first stretch goal, but at only $81 off the mark I’ll be able to fund one adventure pack with profits from initial sales of the core book. That means Monster Kart Mermaids may come out a little later than I’d thought, unless I’m able to pull together funds from another source in the mean time, but it’s not completely out of the picture.

As for the other adventure packs, we’ll see how it goes. If sales are strong, we may be able to do them. I’d especially love to … Continue reading
