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.

No stopping now ’til we got game!

Roswell 51: December Update

December 19th, 2016

Greeting Roswellians!

We are currently assessing how to address our color tone issues and hope to have this resolved and new proofs submitted by the end of this month (December). This will then give us a January… (click here to read the rest of this article and visit our production update page).

Shuffling Dead: Walking Dead S7 E4 Review

November 18th, 2016

Our weekly Walking Dead Three Card Zombie Review!

In “Service” (S7 E4), Negan comes a-knocking at the gates of Alexandria for his first “payment”. He takes all the guns, leaving Rick and the crew without any firepower. That’s a pretty cruel move on Negan’s part – can you imagine playing Pittsburgh 68 without a single gun in the deck?!? In fact, Negan takes sooooo many guns that we had to raid the Roswell 51 card deck just to make the point. So, this week’s Three Card Zombie Review includes a little bonus sneak peek at the new R51 card design. Enjoy!

Shuffling Dead: Walking Dead S7 E3 Review

November 10th, 2016

The Walking Dead Three Card Zombie Review!

In “The Cell” (S7 E3), Daryl finds himself trapped in The Cell(er) being pushed to his Breaking Point by Dwight. He decides to make a Run For It, but fails, and takes a heap of damage from the Saviours (he has got to be out of spoints by now). On a side note, our zombie Bev has been humming the “Easy Street” song all week…

Deryk, Bev, and Ocho, our undead review trio, sum it all up with these three Pittsburgh 68 cards:

Shuffling Dead: Walking Dead S7 E2 Review

November 2nd, 2016

It’s time for our Walking Dead Three Card Zombie Review!

In The Well (Episode 2), Carol awakens in a new place called the Kingdom, a happily-ever-after renaissance faire that is well-fed and zombie free! While its residents are all too willing to drink from the proverbial well and follow-the-leader (King Ezekial), Carol knows that this fantasyland just won’t last. She wants to arm herself and quickly get the heck out of there.

Deryk, Bev, and Ocho, our undead review trio, sum it all up with these three Pittsburgh 68 cards:

The Housewife (Carol), If We Only Had A…, and The Knife.

For those of you who might be rusty on the rules, there are some great pdfs under the Bonus Materials section on our Pittsburgh 68 page. Start with The Big Screen for a quick overview of the game board. Then, check out The Survivor Draw Pile for the new rules for distributing survivor cards.

Shuffling Dead: The Walking Dead Season 7 Premiere

October 27th, 2016

Deryk, Bev, and Ocho (our trio of Pittsburgh 68 shufflers) are trying something new for their Walking Dead episode reviews this season: they will sum up each episode with three cards from the Pittsburgh 68 playing deck.  Here’s their first “three card review” of that brutal Season 7 opener: The Day Will Come When You Won’t Be.

(They all think The Bat is going to be pretty prominent this season…)
