Independence Day 1951

Roswell 51-The Alien Warlord Appears!

November 22nd, 2017

Sharing this game recap from a new friend who purchased ROSWELL 51 at PAX Unplugged and cracked it open at home: “In an epic & cinematic conclusion to our movie, the Scientist faced the Alien Warlord with the recovered ray gun… The Warlord had been burnt, blasted by a shotgun, and chased off with dynamite, but true to old school B-movie form….he kept coming back. And with the final seconds of the film playing, and Roswell facing grim odds, our hero scored an annihilating hit that destroyed the alien warlord for good and saved the people of Roswell. End scene! Fade out.” Thanks for sharing this, Joe!

Invasion of the Body Snatchers

November 22nd, 2017

Yikes! Here’s the final three cards in Reel 4 from a Shuffling Horror: Roswell 51 game
I ran at PAX Unplugged last weekend. A trifecta of Pod People familiar faces!
It’s as “Invasion of the Body Snatchers” as it gets – what are the odds?!?

PAX Unplugged-Philly 2017

November 22nd, 2017

WOW! We had such a blast at PAX Unplugged in Philadelphia last weekend.  We had our names on a wait list for a vendor spot, and two weeks ago, we got an email that a booth was available. Talk about luck! It was non-stop fun and demos at our booth – and then we ran a few games in the amazing Open Play area until midnite!

It was SO great seeing some of our friends and fans from PAX East (Boston); we hadn’t attended that con in a couple years, but they came and found us in Philly! One fan recounted how she’s been trying to find us ever since she playtested PITTSBURGH 68 on our prototype Shuffle Board. She kept looking for that “zombie game with the drive-in movie screen”. So much fun catching up with other folks who played with us at prior PAX events. Such a good time!

We forgot to post this map on our blog prior to the convention
but here’s where you would have found us…

Gary Con X – Old Skool Sneak Peek (2018)

November 11th, 2017

My events have been submitted for Gary Con X (March 2018). Now in its tenth year, Gary Con is held in honor of Gary Gygax in Lake Geneva, WI (the place where the Gygax family lived, the first Gen Con was held, and TSR (the publisher of D&D) was based).  It’s a convention celebrating a “life well-played”.

Below is a sneak peek at the WEGS Old Skool Fantasy events that have been submitted so far. A few Shuffling Horror events are snuck in there, too. WEGS event blurbs follow.

THE WEGS OLD SKOOL BLURBS

Elf. Dwarf. Magic-User. Thief. (BOSS RULES)
Full-throttle dungeon fun with the BOSS (Basic Old Skool System). The BOSS pays homage to Holmes Edition style adventure. We start by rolling up characters and then heroically set forth to the dungeon! Honed for simple, fast-paced play, the BOSS rules are a bare bones version of WEGS Old Skool Fantasy RPG. Great system intro. No XP required. Stirge repellant recommended.

The Caves of Utter Chaos (BOSS RULES)
You’ve heard of the Caves of Chaos, perhaps? Well, these are the caves below those caves that nobody dares enter. Get ready for all-out dungeoncrawling fun with the BOSS (Basic Old Skool System). Full-blown heroes will be created in minutes and then we enter a dungeon brimming with terrible foes, nasty traps, and treasure galore. Great system intro. No XP required. Don’t forget those iron spikes!

Tomb of Utter Horror (WOSF)
Fresh meat welcome. Are you destined to be just another stain on the floor in this demented romp into a Demi-Lich’s tomb? Or have you got what it takes to avoid the insane traps, battle grisly guardians, and escape with the loot??!? Come join our little tomb-plundering expedition to find out. Rules taught. Just don’t get too attached to your character…BAN-HP-R51-2017-GC
