June 1, 2020: Last Day To Back The Summer 2020 Shirt Kickstarter

Now that it's June, it's really starting to feel like summer, and there's no better way to beat the heat than with some breathable t-shirts in your closet. Our Kickstarter campaign is closing this afternoon, and features many classic game-related designs to rep your favorites throughout the summer and beyond. From The Fantasy Trip and GURPS to Car Wars and Illuminati, there's a design for everyone. I'm particular to the Autoduel design myself. You know what they say: "Sun's out, guns out!"*


Back the project today while you still can; these are going to be printed very close to exact order numbers, so this could well be the last time you see most of these designs. Pledge now and stay tuned to select your designs after the campaign is over; don't worry if you can't decide which shirt you want quite yet(I know it's tough). Maybe we can even unlock the GURPS Steampunk design, giving everyone even more options. You can help make it happen today! Here's hoping .*.*.

May 31, 2020: GURPS On Demand Page Updated, Now With Friendlier Links!

The team has been hard at work on the GURPS On Demand program the last few months, adding more and more books so that the print-on-demand selection now includes dozens of 3rd edition and 4th edition GURPS books. They have also re-organized the page, making it easier for you to quickly scroll through the available books and decide which ones are must-haves for your personal gaming library.

Now, our web crew has made another update to the GURPS On Demand page to make it easier for our international GURPS players and GMs to take advantage of the program. Clicking on the "Available at Amazon" button under any one of the covers on this page will*take you to your Amazon site. (Before the change, all of the links led to the U.S. Amazon site.) This update will make it a lot easier for you to quickly find and order the book from your regional Amazon site.

We're not finished adding books to the program, so please keep an eye on the Daily Illuminator for news of additions to the page. And if there's a book you would like to see released in print-on-demand, please let us know on the forums. No promises, but we'll do what we can if we have the rights and files necessary to add a specific title to GURPS On Demand.

May 24, 2020: Crowdfunding Focus: DIAMOND d4

I've known Ed Bourelle of SkeletonKey Games for several years now. Back in the dark ages of the mid-2000s, Ed and I worked together on several projects, and I am happy to report that his cartography and game tiles are attractive, functional, and a great buy for gamemasters who need square-grid maps.

Now, Ed is taking a stab at creating a new eight-sided die that serves as a d4. Numbered one through four twice, the DIAMOND d4 is now funding on Kickstarter and would make a great addition to any dice collection. I've backed the project how can I resist new dice and I encourage you to check out and join the project today!

Phil Reed

NOTE: We have our own eight-sided d4 in the works, as a companion to the d12/d3 that we released late last year (available at Warehouse 23). Our new die is a d8/d4 that can be used as either an eight-sider or as a four-sider. It's not identical to Ed's DIAMOND d4 design, but there are enough similarities that we wanted to mention our own design. Where will our new d8/d4 see release? On Warehouse 23, of course, but then it will also make an appearance in the new edition of Wiz-War that Steve has been working on.

Now available and ready to ship are new releases that may have been overlooked while we were under the shelter-in-place order, including Munchkin Pathfinder 3 and the Gelatinous dice game. We've also opened a few new pre-orders on the site as our distributors and many retailers start to open their businesses.

May 14, 2020: Expand Your Wardrobe With SJ Games T-Shirts!




A gamer's wardrobe can be a bit more eclectic than other people's. Many geeks have shirts that present their various fandoms and hobbies; I know my closet is chock full of them. So we figured there's no better time to let fans of our classic games wear them loud and proud! Our Summer 2020 Shirt Collection on Kickstarter features multiple designs representing some legendary games like GURPS, The Fantasy Trip, and Car Wars. There are multiple designs to start, with more to unlock as we hit stretch goals. Thanks to our awesome fans, we funded on day 1 and unlocked our first stretch goal, the GURPS Robots*shirt!

Look forward to more as the campaign continues. (My personal favorite is the Autoduel shirt, which will be unlocked at $7,500.)


Outfit yourself with some SJ Games shirts and show your true colors!

May 13, 2020: Company Status Report

As you know, the world has changed. With a dramatic drop in sales of physical games over the months of March and April, we've had to dig deeper into our cash than we would have liked, but we're holding on and our team continues to work daily at keeping the company on track and secure.

Since Steve's first update on how COVID-19 has impacted our team (see this Daily Illuminator entry), we've done all we can to continue creating games. In the terribleness of it all, we've had a few wins, and each has been thanks to the hard work of the Steve Jackson Games crew.
  • First up, thanks to Lisa's efforts, we secured an SBA PPP loan. This is a much-appreciated financial boost that will help us keep everyone employed and working for the immediate future.
  • We ran a successful Kickstarter campaign for two new books for The Fantasy Trip, and both Red Crypt &ndash; a solitaire adventure by David Pulver &ndash; and The Book of Unlife &ndash; a collection of monsters by Howard Kistler &ndash; are at print. The BackerKit survey is now open for those of you who missed out and wish to pre-order these two new books.
  • Speaking of The Fantasy Trip, we've created two new books for the game and both are offered in PDF and print in the Unlife/Red Crypt BackerKit survey. The Labyrinth Planner is a 48-page book for the GM to write in; use this when designing the entrance, rooms, passages, and other details of the labyrinth! A book for the players, the Deluxe Character Journal, is a 32-page 8.5" x 11" character record that is a larger, more-detailed version of the smaller Character Journal that is packed in the Decks of Destiny expansion. If you want to keep a detailed history of your character &ndash; or for those GMs who wish to fully describe important NPCs &ndash; this book is all set for your imagination and pencil!
  • Sean Punch took a look at the Labyrinth Planner for The Fantasy Trip and, after studing the pages and concept, created a Dungeon Planner for the Dungeon Fantasy Roleplaying Game. This isn't quite ready for release, but when it is, it will be released as a PDF as well as a print book through the GURPS On Demand program.
  • A lot of finishing work went into Car Wars Sixth Edition as Sam, Randy, and Gabby reviewed every component. Additionally, we approved about 90% of the miniatures to move into the tooling phase at the factory. The project is still on track to deliver to U.S. Kickstarter backers in November.
  • Warehouse 23 has started shipping physical orders (as well as Kickstarter rewards that were put on hold during March and April). Only one member of the team goes in at a time &ndash; and only on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays &ndash; to minimize risk, so packing and shipping games takes longer than it normally would. We are shipping at the moment, though, so now's the chance to place an order at Warehouse 23 if you've been looking to add any of our games to your collection.

Our ultimate goal at all times is the health and safety of our team, so at any time our plans could change if the threat of the virus grows in our area. We hate to be late in delivering orders, or to miss deadlines when creating new games, but we will do what we must to keep everyone as safe as possible. Despite what local officials may say, we're in no rush to move everyone to the office and will stick with the work-from-home approach for the majority of us for as long as we think it is necessary.

Thank you, everyone, for your patience and understanding as our operations remain slower than usual.*

May 11, 2020: Deadly Doodles Now Available In PDF

During this period of physical distancing, we've been hosting a plethora of #SJGamesLive events, many featuring Deadly Doodles play-alongs, and people seem to have really enjoyed them. We'll be continuing those streams going forward, and hope to add even more content, like Deadly Doodles 2 (which is now shipping to Kickstarter backers)! However, since many game stores are limited in capacity at the moment, and fans have been asking us how to play the game at home if they couldn't get their hands on it, we decided to release it in PDF. It's now*available to download from Warehouse 23!

This PDF features the main map, rules, and the cards, which are integral to playing the game on your own. It is print-and-play, so you may want to sleeve the cards or have it printed on cardstock of some sort. Of course, if your local game store is doing curbside pickup or delivery, check and see if they have a copy of the game; you may be able to snag it locally as well. But if you can't, the PDF is a great alternative for delving the doodly dungeons.

And look for Deadly Doodles 2 this summer, once Kickstarter fulfillment has been completed!

After you've played through Death Test and Death Test 2 (available in this boxed set), you'll probably want more. Maybe you would like to take a stab at creating a pgorgrammed adventure for The Fantasy Trip or GURPS? This 1987 article by Steve will teach you how. And here's a great PDF release from Flying Buffalo. Created for*Tunnels & Trolls, How to Write a Solo Adventure collects Flying Buffalo's various guidelines (many written back in the '80s, including a large section by Mike Stackpole).

We also direct your attention to our own writing guidelines, of course!

Fans of The Fantasy Trip want more solo adventures, so if you have a spectacular project going, we'll be happy to chat with you about it. You will need a copy of the Legacy Edition set if you plan to write for The Fantasy Trip. You will also want a copy of the Adventures hardcover if you're writing adventures, so you can see examples of what we're looking for when it comes to GM-led scenarios.

The Illuminati is, by design, a large interwoven web of power and influence, hidden in the shadows. Unfortunately during a pandemic, even they need to keep their web at arm's length, so what's a shadow leader to do? How about playing solo? Events Coordinator Alex Yeager has developed a beta set of solo rules to be played with Illuminati. You can check out the background and development notes in our recent Medium article.*

Play it, and give us some feedback! We are interested in improving it, and since this is a brand new way to play a game that's been around for decades, there's a lot to test. So check those rules out, give 'em a play, and see if you can fight the forces working behind the scenes against your own!

May 3, 2020: These Are A Few Of My Favorite Orcs

They were cast by Ral Partha in the mid- to late 70s &ndash; one has 1976 on the bottom. They are part of a batch of 15 that I painted up as my go-to bad guys for the early days of The Fantasy Trip. I probably got them at King's Hobbies, a north Austin store that is still in business! Left to right, the first three are different poses from the same army: a bowman, an axeman, and a swordsman. There also exists a spearman &ndash; maybe he is still in the box that came back from Gen Con. Returning to the photo, we have two oddballs with the same physique as the orcs: a caveman with a spear, and a skull-head zombie with a club.

I really like these little orcs. Their flat faces give them a stoic, relentless expression that's enhanced by the spike-helm with nasal. They were slain many times during the development of Melee and Wizard, but they were always game for one more try.

They were small figures when they were made. By modern standards, they're tiny. But I still love them very much; if we ever did a minis line, I'd think seriously about giving one orc clan this sort of face and gear, as an homage to the great stuff that was coming out of Ral Partha forty years ago.

If you have some of these guys that you don't want, or if you know more about their history (like, were there more than three of the orc army poses?), please let me know at sj@sjgames.com.
