It's true. The Mistborn: House War Kickstarter does indeed launch next month. Probably toward the end of the month, but next month nonetheless.

It's a kickass strategic negotiation game designed by my old friend Kevin Wilson, who co-designed Classic Spycraft with me waaaaaaay back in the day. It's been amazing getting to work with him again, and to expand the Mistborn game world with such a worthy new title.

Alex, Ed, and I have been slaving away at this one for months and months and months. It'll be great to finally get it out there for people.

I know I'll probably get a "You'll have to wait and see", but 'strategic negotation' something along the rough lines of say Settlers of Catan or Twilight Imperium?  Because if so, I cannot wait for another board game to hit the table that causes divorce and ends friendships!  (Seriously, as much fun as Settlers is, the amount of rage that game can generate is close to Monopoly level.)

Are you guys taking your sheep too seriously, or are my friends not taking it seriously enough?  (Sheep roads are the comfiest.)

Munchkin made more stony silences in my circles than Settlers of Catan did.

We haven't played munchkin in a good while, but yea.. that's another one.  Anything where there is paranoia or the possibility that there's a conspiracy against you, it leads into hilarious overly dramatic (on purpose) good times.  For example, "I never trusted that wood-scavenging whore!" - Friend 3 said of Friend 4. ...who was also Friend 3's wife.

Geeze... you guys need to play Diplomacy, so you can get out of the hate-inducing-board-game kiddie pool and see what a real friendship killing game is.

Seriously, it's what Diplomacy is famous for.

Negotiation is in fact the engine of the game. Very little gets done without it and you have to work together to achieve most things. You are still, however, in competition with each other.

So... YMMV. A lot. ;)

Unfortunately Pathfinder's closing in on having a monster-building system that might rival Fantasy Craft's:

It's interesting but I'm not in the market to play Pathfinder.  Got nothing against 'em - in fact, more power to them.  Just not my bag.  Also, I don't think immobile means what they think it means.  (Immobile = 15 ft move speed?!)

I figured it's a nice gesture to cross-pollinate company lines.

No argument.  I found it a fascinating read (five page preview) and imagine that many folks will get a lot of use out of it.  I'm in the market for some of their adventure paths as well.  I didn't mean to come across as dismissive of their work.  However, going back and reading my post, I can see how that might be.

Last hours to participate in the Dresden Files Cooperative card Game... I've been playing with the PnP a lot this month and it's really fun and captures the series very well. Also, the system is waiting to be hack for other settings... I've been thinking about adapting Firefly, trading Cases for Jobs.

The KS have been a success, and there are a few interesting extras, including free shipping in the USA.

The Mistborn: House War Kickstarter goes live on June 15th.

This is an exciting new board game of noble intrigue, designed by our dear friend Kevin Wilson (Arkham Horror, The X-Files, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shadows of the Past).

We'll be posting updates and details about exclusives to our email newsletter over the next couple weeks, so make sure you're subscribed.
