We are very excited about this and hopefully some of you will be too.
It’s really happening! Backspindle Games is going to be at Gen Con from 4 – 7 August as guests of our North American strategic partner, Ninja Division. David & Leonard will be demoing games, refereeing Luchador! Mexican Wrestling dice matches at Booth 2814 on Thursday and Saturday afternoon and Friday morning. They will also be play-testing a few new games we have been working on and are available for interviews during their down-time.
On Monday 8 August they will spend the day in Philadelphia. David would really like to go to the top of the Rocky Balboa steps (a.k.a the Philadelphia Museum of Art) and they both would love to meet some local gamers. If you would like to hang out with our guys for the day, please drop a line as soon as possible to firstname.lastname@example.org
Codinca…the story continues
Once upon a time a big ship holding a container of much sought after Codinca games, left a port in China. Once out into the vast ocean the poor ship was hit by a typhoon. Thankfully the ship, and the Codinca games survived, but missed their Suez Canal passage slot, missed their birthing slot at Southampton in England and subsequently got diverted to a port in Belgium. Happily, the Codinca games then got transferred to another ship and are now on their way back to the UK. We hope to post them out to the latest pre-order customers by 29 July. If we do not have them we will make sure they go out immediately after Gen Con.
Sometimes things are just beyond our control…
Copies can be ordered here.
The last ever print-run of Guards! Guards! games is diminishing. We still have a few Clacks and Luchador available. You can purchase them from our website.
Last month we were delighted once again to be invited to the biggest gaming convention in Northern Ireland, Q-Con. All we can say is, it was the best ever! We had a great location, a willing crowd of players both for our existing games and ready to play-test new game ideas we are considering for publication.
Gamers got a sneak peak of the new Mourne Quest game we have been working on with author Garry McElherron.
We are delighted to advise this year we will be sharing our booth, F-148 at Spiel, Essen with Spiral Galaxy Games. They will be releasing their new game, Mythos Tales, a cooperative investigating game set in HP Lovecraft’s Arkham.
Till next time…remember #gamingisgood
