September 19, 2019: Coming To Kickstarter! Deadly Doodles 2

Deadly Doodles was our smash hit at Gen Con last month and we've already ordered its second printing (expected to reach our primary warehouse in early December). At every event where we taught the game this year, the one question we were asked over and over (after "when is this coming out?") was: "Will there be more maps?"

Yes! Absolutely yes. And you can help us make that a reality next week with the launch of Deadly Doodles 2 on Kickstarter.

The campaign is set to launch on Monday, September 23, and is scheduled to close on October 11. The expansion includes three new maps on Day One, and unlocking stretch goals expands the box to six new maps. And the new maps offer up new mechanics that lead to some twisted, nasty dungeons that are challenging to defeat. (We won't talk about my score of -8, okay?)

To receive notification when the project launches on Kickstarter, please go here and click the green "Notify me" button.

We hope to see you join the campaign next week to help make Deadly Doodles 2 as big as it can be!

International Update: Please note that we will be offering rewards to Europe and Canada, as well as the United States, as a part of the Deadly Doodles 2 campaign.

September 15, 2019: Autoduel Weekly: What Will Car Wars Sixth Edition Cost?

We know that cost is a serious concern these days &ndash;*everything costs more than it once did. And we know that many of you are waiting for the Car Wars Sixth Edition project to launch on Kickstarter and asking: How much money will I need to support the game? With that in mind, we wanted to give you some advance insight so you can start saving up to join in*Car Wars Sixth Edition as soon as the Kickstarter page goes live.

Please note that all prices are estimates and will likely change before the project is live. Additionally, these numbers do not include shipping charges. And yes, international rewards will be offered, so no matter where you are in the world, start saving up your cash!
  • Car Wars Sixth Edition, Basic Pledge &ndash;*To get the game, which can handle up to four players, we expect that you will need $100 to cover the Kickstarter pledge. This is for the dice, cards, rules, dashboards, turning key, and miniatures &ndash;*everything you need to play the new edition of Car Wars! This does not cover any of the possible add-on items.
  • Car Wars Sixth Edition, Upgraded Pledge &ndash;*The game, three more miniatures, and a playmat. This does not include any of the possible add-on items. This pledge will be priced somewhere around $200.
  • Car Wars Sixth Edition, Ultimate Pledge &ndash;*This is the Upgrade Pledge plus a handful of other miniatures expansions (exact number still being worked out, but at least three more minis), a second playmat, and more. This pledge is likely to come in around $350 and will include a lot of options for when you sit down to start designing your new cars. This does not include any of the possible add-on items.

There will not be an "I Want It All" reward for this campaign.

And that covers the basics, gang. There may be some even higher-level (limited) rewards, but the three listed above are the "you get the stuff!" rewards.

As we said, these are estimates and there's a chance that the numbers will change. The most important thing to remember? Nothing will be exclusive to Kickstarter. Not all items produced will be offered to distribution, but we will make any remaining inventory available after the campaign is completely shipped to backers.

September 14, 2019: Backpack Games!

Each year, between business trips and vacations, I fly about one to two times every month. After years of airline flights across the world, I've slowly built a catalog of games that are a blast to play and don't take up too much space in the backpack. (When you plan for a nine-day trip to Hong Kong and design the entire journey around carry-on only, that backpack space is valuable; you must carry only the most compact of games.)
  • Yahtzee: Steal the Deal*&ndash; At less than three inches to a side, this portable Yahtzee game is the #1 entry in my list of backpack games. It helps a lot that it is one of the best Yahtzee games Hasbro ever published; it's just too bad the game is long out-of-print and becoming difficult to find. But if you can find a copy, grab it! From the same evolutionary tree that includes Risk Express and Elder Sign, Yahtzee: Steal the Deal uses cards and dice and gives you specific target dice rolls every round. Works great for two!
  • Age of War*&ndash; Larger in size than Yahtzee: Steal the Deal, Reiner Knizia's Age of War is from the same family of games as that Hasbro offering. Originally known in Europe as Risk Express, Age of War again uses dice and cards .*.*. though this time you're competing to capture territory. If you can't find Yahtzee: Steal the Deal, this makes a great substitute. And while I would never take both on the same trip, it's great to own both games since it allows for variety between trips.
  • Zombie Dice Horde Edition*&ndash; Though the basic Zombie Dice game costs less, the Horde Edition is the better travel game because the dice bag allows you to collapse everything to take as little space as possible. Leave the expansion material at home on your travels to make the game take even less room in your bag! The big benefit to Zombie Dice as a backpack game is that it is so easy to learn that you can even include the non-gamers you meet in a session.
  • Scrimish. There have been a number of Stratego-like card games over the years (Hera & Zeus and the Wyvern CCG stand out as favorites), but none have been as easy to carry as Scrimish. The game is a single deck of cards in a small tuck box, and it carries the hidden-unit mechanics and feel of Stratego without the need to carry the board and all the loose bits. A good choice .*.*. and again for two players. The game is sold in decks of different colors, though, allowing for more players at a time.**

September 12, 2019: Keeping Our Top Sellers In Stock

Earlier this year, there were months when some of our top-selling titles were unavailable. An unexpected bump in sales at the start of the year burned through our supply of Munchkin Deluxe, Munchkin 2, and other games and expansions, and left the team working hard with the GPI office to accelerate planned reprints. The current uncertainty and growing flood of games in the market has surprised us a few times now &ndash;*both by games selling faster than expected as well as slower than expected &ndash;*and we've not yet found our rhythm in this unstable environment.

Regardless of what will or will not happen, we've identified a number of our top-selling games and expansions, and have placed a blanket order with GPI to (we hope) avoid future outages. Starting in September, and every other month till March, we will receive a container loaded with copies of:
  • Munchkin Deluxe
  • Munchkin
  • Munchkin 2
  • Munchkin 3
  • Munchkin 4
  • Munchkin 5
  • Munchkin Cthulhu
  • Munchkin Warhammer 40,000
  • Munchkin Warhammer 40,000: Faith and Firepower
  • Munchkin Warhammer 40,000: Savagery and Sorcery
  • Munchkin Warhammer Age of Sigmar
  • Munchkin Zombies
  • Illuminati
  • Zombie Dice

This is a pricey commitment, but we think it is the right bet to make in order to keep a steady supply of these games and expansions in the warehouse for the holidays.

We will continue to keep an eye on inventory levels &ndash;*as we do constantly &ndash;*so we can make a decision as to whether or not to place a similar standing order with GPI later this year. It is our hope that this steady flow will allow us to fulfill order requests without housing too much excess inventory. Will this work? We won't know until next year, but we think this will help our cash flow and our ability to fill orders for our top-selling evergreen (and new) titles.

Deadly Doodles, our hottest release at Gen Con, is expanding with new maps, new rules, and even a new custom six-sided die featuring the art of Katie Cook!*

Designed by Sam Mitschke and Randy Scheunemann, Deadly Doodles 2 was created after listening to players who had a chance to demo the game at PAX East, FnordCon, and other conventions we visited earlier this year. The one request that we heard at every event? More game maps to explore! And that's exactly what Deadly Doodles 2 offers, with a total of six new maps if all of the project's stretch goals are unlocked.

The maps are numbered &ndash; 1 through 6 &ndash; so you may roll one six-sided die to randomly select a map at the start of each session. The custom die does more than that, though, with some of the new boards including doors, gemstones, and other features that are triggered by rolling the die at the start of each round.

August 31, 2019: Warehouse 23 Top Ten For July 2019

Warehouse 23 does a lot more than just online sales. We are the landing spot for everything Customer Service, we prep and ship everything for all the conventions we attend, and we even ship out some of our smaller Kickstarters (see Illuminati Coins and Hexagram #1). Like everyone in the main office, we all wear several hats.

Well, if this month was any indication, you folks sure love everything The Fantasy Trip, with five of the top ten (including the top three) all belonging to TFT! The second issue of Hexagram takes the top spot and looks like it will be just as popular as the first! We have three Munchkin titles in the top ten by units sold, including the almost gone Munchkin Quest. (Seriously, if you haven't picked this up yet, do it now. There are only a handful of copies left in the warehouse.) Our newest game,*Deadly Doodles, makes its first appearance on the list. If GenCon was any indication, this is going to be a very popular and fun game. We had fans coming back each day to show their friends!

Over in the digital realms, it's unsurprising that July's new release &ndash; GURPS Monster Hunters Power-Ups 1 &ndash; is the best-selling item, as it adds lots of cool new character-upgrade possibilities for GURPS Monster Hunters heroes. It's heartening to know that Star Fleet Battles fans love the Gorn Master Starship Book, the new release from Amarillo Design Bureau. GURPS-powered fantasy gaming claimed three of the top slots (among them, the still-popular Artifacts of Felltower). Rounding out the Top 10 are some "classic" items (including a digital version new to Warehouse 23!) and the stand-alone Discworld Roleplaying Game. The diverse tastes of gaming fans always surprise and delight us!

August 29, 2019: Coming To Kickstarter Next Week: Dungeon Fantasy Magic Items 2

As we mentioned earlier this month, Sean Punch has finished a new expansion to the Dungeon Fantasy Roleplaying Game .*.*. and it is going to Kickstarter next week! This "Quickstarter" campaign is scheduled to launch on Monday and will run until Friday, September 6, at which point we will move forward with printing the new book.

For those of you who backed the Dungeon Fantasy Monsters 2 campaign earlier this year, we're happy to report that the books arrived in Austin earlier this week and we've started packing and shipping rewards. Many of you in the U.S. will see your packages very soon, maybe even next week if all goes well!

Physical rewards in the new Dungeon Fantasy Magic Items 2 Kickstarter campaign will only be offered to U.S. backers; those of you outside the United States may select the PDF option. Once we have shipped the printed book to supporters, then we will make it available as a part of our on demand GURPS line.

To jump in when the Kickstarter campaign goes live, please follow both the Steve Jackson Games and Warehouse 23 pages on Kickstarter. Once we launch, regardless of which account we use, you'll receive an email notification from Kickstarter and can join right away. And you won't want to miss launch day; the campaign for Dungeon Fantasy Magic Items 2 will not be open long.

MINI FAQ:
=========
Q1: What does a Yellow Box means?
A1: Most of the time, you enter your information in the white boxes. If a piece of information is required (i.e. you need to make a choice!), it will be highlighted in yellow

Q2: What are conditional values?
A2: When a bonus is granted for a specified circumstance but not always, the value is shown as a + to indicate this. For example, a Sensate Gnome with a +5 bonus to perception would see it as "+5/+2", where the +2 is the bonus from that heritage!

Q3: Where are the action, reaction and free action symbols?
A3: These symbols are not part of the font used, so (very) similar symbols (diamond) are used. These are shown on the Front sheet.

Q4: Where are the names for the Gods/Deities?
A4: The name of the Gods are Copyrighted by Paizo and I am not allowed (at this time) to use them. If Paizo decides to grant me permission to use them, then I shall do so!

Q5: Can I set the Rank for a skill or a weapon myself?
A5: Sure; In the skill table on the Front sheet, the last column allows you to force the Rank of any of your skill to a specified Rank. The same can be done to weapons, under the displayed Rank.

Q6: Why isn't the series of 'Breadth' archetype feats adding to my spell slots and repertoire?
A6: In the current release, you need to add these manually in the off-print section of the Spell Planner.

Q7: Is there a worksheet for the Familiar?
A7: No; When defined, the Familiar's information will appear on the BACK worksheet

Q8: In the section on the Front sheet, Perception is written with two numbers (ex: Perception +5/+2). Why is that?
A8: The second number is the conditional bonus you might need to apply. Check the Back sheet to see details about your Conditional bonuses. Note that skills also use this nomenclature.

Q9: Which effects can I create? Where can I get help on recreating effects?
A9: The Dictionary worksheet has a (big) list of all the effects currently handled! The Effects system (made possible with the ParseEffect() function) is similar across all products, so you can check the Wiki entry for that

Q10: Can I change the image on the Front sheet?
A10: Not presently. But you can always print to PDF, then edit the PDF file to overlay your own image

Q11: I found a bug/Typo/Error... Should I do anything about it?
A11: Absolutely! Please report any issues you find in the Gremlin section of the Community Forum so it can be eliminated!

Q12: Can I create a Custom Class or Ancestry?
A12: Not in the initial release. BUT this functionality will soon be added! Once you receive the update, you will be able to do so!!

August 22, 2019: Kickstarter Reports, August Update

Four different campaigns &ndash; The Fantasy Trip Adventures, Bag of Bags, Dungeon Fantasy Monsters 2, and Three Munchkin*Mini-Expansions &ndash; are all set to land in Detroit later this week. Once received, the container will then move to our fulfillment warehouse in Michigan, where everything will be broken down and some of the games shipped to Warehouse 23 in Austin. In order to divide the fulfillment load, we are going to use two different warehouses: U.S. rewards first, then international rewards.

And speaking of international Kickstarter fulfillment, we continue to expend more resources on fulfillment of international Kickstarter rewards than is sustainable. Regardless of which approach we attempt, the cost is always high and our backers are frequently discouraged and upset by the expense and amount of time that delivery requires. And when a project is technically late, it is often the international rewards that shift us from on schedule to behind schedule. For those reasons, we are not offering international rewards for our current and upcoming campaigns. We hate to disappoint everyone, but we cannot continue to lose money and time delivering international rewards. We will continue to search for an answer to the problem.

Our current projects and the status of each:

Munchkin Pathfinder 3
  • August 19 to August 23
  • Now funding. Join today! This is a "Quickstarter" campaign and running for less than a week. This is an experiment in accelerating delivery to backers, and we'll know soon enough how well the experiment performs.

The Fantasy Trip: Decks of Destiny
  • April 29 to June 3
  • 1,172 backers and on schedule
  • BackerKit surveys and preorders are now closed. The project is at print, and we are waiting for tooling samples.

Three Mini-Expansions for Munchkin!
  • March 25 to April 12
  • 1,331 backers and ahead of schedule
  • The project landed in Detroit earlier this week. We expect to start shipping rewards next month.

Bag of Bags
  • March 31 to April 1
  • 287 backers and on schedule
  • Arriving later this week, shipping from Warehouse 23 in September.

Powered by GURPS: Dungeon Fantasy Monsters 2 & Game Reprint
  • March 4 to March 22
  • 1,019 backers and on schedule
  • Arriving next week, we will start fulfillment in September. And don't miss the upcoming Dungeon Fantasy Magic Items 2 campaign (info here)!

Pocket Box Games of the Eighties
  • January 30 to March 1
  • 1,974 backers and behind schedule
  • Scanning continues. We are not yet ready to move into full production, but those of you following the project have seen the pics of the tooling samples and understand why we are behind schedule. It will definitely be worth the extra time that the project is requiring from our factory partners.

The Fantasy Trip Adventures
  • January 2 to January 14
  • 1,375 backers and behind schedule
  • Landed in the U.S. earlier this week, shipping starts next month. We estimated an August delivery for the U.S., but September is more likely.

Ogre Battlefields
  • December 5 to December 28
  • 1,401 backers and behind schedule
  • Shipping is underway! Many U.S. supporters have their rewards; the packages are still being prepared and mailed out for those who do not yet have them. We estimated a July delivery; roughly only 50% of the rewards shipped in July.

Munchkin Steampunk: Girl Genius
  • November 1 to November 21
  • 2,195 backers and behind schedule
  • International rewards are still being handled. U.S. rewards were delivered early, but as mentioned above, the international rewards have been a constant drain on our resources.

That's a total of 9 active projects:
  • 1 now funding.
  • 2 now mailing to backers.
  • 4 start shipping to backers the first week of September.
  • 2 at the factory.

Kickstarter is becoming a more important part of our plans. We are finding that in today's crowded market, Kickstarter is the most reliable way to measure interest in a new project and guarantee a success. We will continue to take projects to Kickstarter for the immediate future; to keep close track of our efforts, we recommend following both the Steve Jackson Games and Warehouse 23 accounts, as well as liking and following our Facebook page.

August 21, 2019: Autoduel Weekly: Custom Dice

An important part of the new edition of Car Wars is the underlying game mechanics that are driven by custom six-sided dice. Unlike earlier editions, the upcoming Car Wars Sixth Edition game does not use standard six-sided dice. Instead, we have created six different dice that each serve a specific purpose:
  • Yellow. A workhorse die, weighted heavily to more damage than defense.
  • Green. Two wrench faces make this great for weapons with special effects &ndash;*flame weapons, for example, that set a target on fire when a wrench is rolled.
  • Red. The red die is defense-heavy .*.*. but that also means it is skid-heavy since the shield/skid icon shares the same face.
  • White. With double star and double wrench faces, this die can be a monster that throws a lot of damage at an opponent.
  • Black. Insanely overloaded with wrenches; four of the faces are the wrench icon.
  • Blue. Effectively the 50/50 die, with three shield faces and three damage faces.

The core game includes the yellow, green, and red dice. The others will be found in expansion sets. Which dice will you roll during the game? Everyone will roll yellow, green, and red dice when maneuvering (depending on the difficulty of the turn), while dice rolled during an attack depend entirely on the weapon used when firing on an enemy.*

Best news of all? Tooling is complete for all six of the dice! Since they are each a different color of plastic, we had to create six different steel tools (which dramatically increased our financial investment in the game). We thought it important, though, to take this step before crowdfunding so that our upcoming Kickstarter campaign can show photos (the pic shown is of an earlier stage; the final dice will not be speckled) of the finished dice. Car Wars Sixth Edition is an important part of our 40th-anniversary plans (Steve Jackson Games turns 40 next year!) and we refuse to cut corners on the project.
