June 17, 2019: 23% Off On Warehouse 23's Classic PDFs!

We mentioned a couple of days ago that lots of the staff was at Origins (more on that to come!) and that we were having a Warehouse 23 sale on PDFs while we were out of the office. The response was amazing. What are the top sellers, you ask? I would have to say GURPS Powers: The Weird and Gurps Powers: Enchanced Senses are split pretty evenly. Principia Discordia*was a favorite, as always, as was*Pyramid #3/13: Thaumatology. If you missed your chance to pick up one of these classics, well, before it was a classic, now is your chance. What would your favorite be? PDFs from 2017, 2018, and 2019 are not included in this sale. Check it out now; when we head back to the office on Tuesday, this opportunity will be gone!

June 8, 2019: Four Perilous Journeys, New Adventures For The Fantasy Trip, Ends Today!

It hasn't even been a year since our Kickstarter campaign for The Fantasy Trip Legacy Edition was launched, and already we've seen:
  • The release of the Legacy Edition game, as well as Melee, Wizard, Death Test, and much more!
  • A successful Kickstarter campaign for The Fantasy Trip Adventures, a hardcover collection of five new adventures that is now in final production at the factory.
  • Hexagram #1, the first issue of an old-school zine for The Fantasy Trip .*.*. and the second issue is in the works!
  • Decks of Destiny, a massive collection of cards, megahex tiles, journals, and other tools for The Fantasy Trip, successfully closed on Kickstarter earlier this month; it's now in final production with our team at the office.

That's a lot of great support for the return of this classic RPG, yes, but that's not where we're drawing the line. Closing today on Kickstarter is the officially licensed Four Perilous Journeys, another wave of new adventures for The Fantasy Trip, including one new solo programmed adventure! Doug Cole and his team have done a fabulous job with the campaign &ndash; and, late today, the Kickstarter project closes and they begin the serious work of wrapping up the adventures and preparing them for print.

Join in Four Perilous Journeys today and don't miss this chance to expand your TFT library of adventures.

June 7, 2019: Bill And Ted's Excellent Adventure Continues

Once again, strange things are afoot at the Circle K .*.*.

Believe it or not, this year is the 30th anniversary of the film Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure*(it premiered in 1989). And after years of "maybe they will, maybe they won't," a third movie is confirmed and in production: Bill and Ted Face the*Music. To celebrate the anniversary, and Bill and Ted's films past and present, we urge you to check out*Bill and Ted's Excellent Boardgame, by Sam Mitschke and Randy Scheunemann.

Bill and Ted's Excellent Boardgame is a programming-style game for 2-4 players, ages 10 and up. You get to pilot a time-hopping phone booth around the board, picking up historical characters and dodging Evil Dudes. Using cards illustrated by Len Peralta depicting scenes from the movie, you decide which path you will take each turn. The mechanics capture the half-planned, half-chaotic journey of Bill and Ted in their quest to finish their history report. You can't be knocked off your planned path, but you don't know where the other players or the Evil Dudes will go. Bump into an Evil Dude and you lose a Historical Figure.

The game ends when time (i.e., the card deck) runs out. The player with the most historical figures wins! Everyone else has to go to Oates Military School in Alaska .*.*.

Look for*Bill and Ted's Excellent Boardgame*at your friendly local game store, or pick*one up from Warehouse 23 today!

Gather your friends, watch the movie, and then compete to see who can get an A on their presentation. But as always, be excellent to each other.

May 29, 2019: Kickstarter Reports, May Update

Crowdfunding efforts, especially on Kickstarter, are an important part of today's gaming landscape. Kickstarter reported last month that, since its launch, games at the site have accumulated over one billion dollars in pledges. Here at Steve Jackson Games, we've found that Kickstarter is a great way to determine which projects many of you are most interested in, and in an effort to be as transparent as possible, we regularly post an overall report of our active Kickstarter campaigns so you can see exactly where we're at with the open projects. To keep close track of our Kickstarter efforts, we recommend following both the Steve Jackson Games and Warehouse 23 accounts, as well as liking and following our Facebook page.
