Exciting news! The Roswell 51 proofs arrived this weekend. Once we’ve reviewed these, we sign each page and ship them back to the printhouse. Then… we head to the launch pad and get ready to blast off into production!

The game proofs have invaded our game table!

Roswell 51: Mid February Update

February 17th, 2017

A quick update on the status of the next exciting release in our Shuffling Horror line – Roswell 51! I am currently waiting for the printhouse to upload the final online file for my review/approval; this single file stands between us and our printed proofs. Here’s our remaining steps to production:

1. Review/approve the online proofs (electronic proofs).
2. Review/approve the printed proofs (physical proofs).
3. Greenlight the game into production.

The first two steps rely on the printer’s timeline, the third step is the manufacturer’s timeline. At this point in the project, we are subject to their schedules. For more info on our production status, I have been posting all backer updates on our Roswell 51 project page. I will continue to post our interim updates there.

Feb 3 – Dice Hog Day 2017

February 3rd, 2017

Here at GameWick HQ, February 3 is Dice Hog Day (the day after those other famous hogs makes their prediction). Early this morning (well not too early because the Dice Hog likes his sleep), our groggy-but-fun-loving dice hog crept out of his hole, dice in hand and ready to roll!

2017-Dice-Hog-Day

As tradition goes, the Dice Hog tosses a pair of dice into the frosted terrain (this year we’re a bit light on the frost and snow as you can see in the pic). This dice roll predicts just how long winter is going to last. However, there are some house rules:

1. Dice must stay where they land for seven days, untouched.

2. When there is no snow on them whatsoever, none, the dice result is multiplied by two. However, two special rules apply to this result (it wouldn’t be very GameWicky if we didn’t have some “hot numbers”):

Snake Eyes (1,1) – Winter is officially over and you can put the snow shovels away immediately.

Boxcars (6, 6) – Uh Oh! There’s probably more snow coming. Bring dice back inside and wait for next storm. Then repeat process as if it is Feb 3 all over again.

The Dice Hog is heading back to his hoggy-hole now. Stay tuned for our official results in seven days!!!
