December 10, 2018: Ogre Battlefields Is Destroying Stretch Goals On Kickstarter!

This is incredible, gang! If you're not yet supporting the Ogre Battlefields campaign on Kickstarter, then now's your chance to dive in and help the push to make this the largest*Ogre expansion ever!!! The project has been open for less than a week, and already the backers have broken through all of the stretch goals we had planned to carry us through to the end of the campaign. What does that mean? More stretch goals!

We're being careful when it comes to adding stretch goals, though, and selecting only those ideas that will not knowingly delay delivery of the project.

If your game collection includes the Ogre Designer's Edition and/or Ogre Sixth Edition games, then the Ogre Battlefields expansion is a must! More maps!!!! Are you new to Ogre?

"Put aside everything else the man has done from Car Wars to Illuminati to GURPS and with Ogre alone Steve Jackson earns a place in the pantheon of game design immortals."
- Erick Wujcik, Hobby Games: The 100 Best (2007)

If you've never before played Ogre, then now is a perfect time to join in and learn what has made this classic wargame a fan-favorite for over four decades. As part of the Ogre Battlefields project on Kickstarter, we have reward levels that include the miniatures rules, a level loaded with the Battle Box (dozens of minis inside), as well as one reward level for those of you who want to take the chipboard counter approach and aren't looking to assemble and paint plastic minis.

Ogre is still one of the fastest-playing wargames out there, and the Ogre Battlefields expansion combined with either Ogre Sixth Edition or the Ogre Battle Box makes a great game even better. Join us today, and see why so many gamers are still enjoying Ogre over forty years after it first reached tables.

We also ooh-ed and aah-ed over the new edition of Illuminati, played a lot of Simon's Cat, Super Kitty Bug Slap, and Blob Lobber, and celebrated the release of the*Grave Danger*expansion for the Munchkin Collectible Card Game with promos and booster packs.

Thanks to everyone who stopped by, played a game, or talked to us about our games. There was much excitement and anticipation for the upcoming release of The Fantasy Trip and the new edition of Car Wars in 2019. *The PAX convention staff are some of the best in the business, and they have made both attendees and exhibitors welcome to their show. And there was no going hungry, with the Reading Terminal Market next door for a huge variety of food and drink vendors. Here's hoping that we will see a bunch of you again next year!

December 1, 2018: Podcasts Are Here To Stay

Podcasting has been a "thing" for over a decade now, but for much of that time podcasts were primarily the domain of the geeky and the uberfan. The idea of periodic, often subscription-based content shouldn't have surprised people who grew up with magazines and episodic TV, but even now I talk to people who don't even know what podcasts are, much less how they have become mainstream in many corners. (We at SJ Games even had one for a little while, the FnordCast, and I still hope we're able to relaunch it one of these days.)

A few podcasts have become legitimately famous. The ur-example is Serial, whose first season was a sensation almost as soon as it launched, spawning websites, discussion threads, sequel and companion podcasts, and even mainstream press coverage, bringing to light a case of a potentially innocent man behind bars for almost 20 years. Serial also inspired countless other shows, both original content and stories that started in traditional media and expanded or followed up with more and newer information, such as Dirty John, which is now making the jump to TV on the Bravo network.

Podcasts seem to be the 21st century's venue for advice letters, either spun off from existing columns such as Savage Love (warning: contents NSFW) and sites such as Ask a Manager or original to the podcast medium like My Brother, My Brother, and Me. It's also offering worthy successors to the radio serials of the early 20th century, with ongoing stories such as Limetown, Homecoming, The Thrilling Adventure Hour, and Welcome to Night Vale. All of this barely scratches the surface of what's available; if you're interested in something, there's a very good chance there's a podcast (or a dozen podcasts) talking about it.

But for my money, the surest sign that podcasting has "made it" is that podcast creators and performers are now enjoying the trappings of celebrity, including going on tours and even starting conventions of their own (the first PodCon was earlier this year and it shows signs of becoming at least an annual event). I recently had the delightful pleasure of seeing Helen Zaltzman, creator and voice of The Allusionist, right here in Austin, and she's not the first or tenth podcaster to make a stop here on a tour specifically for their podcasts.

If you're already familiar with podcasts, you doubtless have your own list of favorites &ndash; some of my own aren't even mentioned here, but that's because I have several dozen in my podcast queue and listen to podcasts on almost every car trip longer than a couple of minutes. If you aren't familiar with podcasts, there are thousands of them out there .*.*. why not start exploring and see if there's one you like? And if you have a favorite I didn't mention, let me know in the forums*&ndash; I'm always interested in trying a new show!
