I hope this doesn’t become Kickstarter’s final funding use

In other news, my wife finally noticed the Throne of Gamers sign that I posed on the guest bathroom door. Much mirth ensued.

New Flash Point Kickstarter just launched!

Happy, happy!  Joy, joy!  The new expansion is AN AIRPLANE!  I’ve been waiting for this and thought a jet would be totally doable after they went to a 12-sided die for the submarine and splitting the d6 into the front and back halves of the map.  Also included is a new role, a Fire Prevention Officer.  It’ll be interesting to see what they do.  The flip side of the board features a subway station, that should prove interesting.  As an exclusive for Kickstarter, a mini-map is included that adds another basement and attic level for last year’s Extreme Danger expansion.

I received the email  an hour ago and they’re already over 70% of their funding goal and I’m confident they’ll hit it by the end of the day.  The Kickstarter ends July 30 and they’re projecting a ship date (get it?  ship?  the Dangerous Waters expansion?) is estimated for November.  I don’t remember when last year’s expansion was promised for, but it did arrive in time for Christmas.

One VERY important note: the Kickstarter is limited to 3,000 copies, so order now!

The Throne of Games: Water is Coming….

Though I haven’t read the books and am leaning towards not reading them until the TV series is finished, we’re really enjoying the HBO production.  And John Kovalic is nigh unto infallible as far as I’m concerned.

I’m low on toner on toner for my color laser, so I sucked it in to Photoshop and inverted it.  My wife hasn’t noticed yet that I’ve put it on our guest bathroom door.  I hope John doesn’t mind.

Dynamite Comics Humble Bundle

Humble Bundle is doing a collection of comic books from Dynamite, the home of lots of good titles like Dresden, Robert Jordan’s Wheel of Time, etc.  This bundle gives you 22 titles, some are singles and some are collections, of lots of good stuff for $15.  They’re available in PDF, ePub, Mobi: all at the same time.  Takes a little time to download them all, but I’m looking forward to it if I can squeze ’em all in on my Nook HD+ for our trip to Phoenix and Vegas starting tomorrow.

The package is available for another five days.

And Happy Fourth of July!  Even if you’re not in the USA, you’re allowed to have a good one.  Just don’t start too many grass or forest fires, please.
