[Musings of a Game Store Owner] GGP: A Kick in the...

So you have a game design or product. You hold a Kickstarter campaign to raise money to produce it.

It's a little more complicated than just "take the money and run". There's a lot more that goes into the process than collecting the cash. I talked to a few folks who have been there and done that to get a real sense of how it goes down, and what to expect.

New Member Monday - Holy Crap, You Guys. Srsly.

Hey folks and welcome to a post Thanksgiving week on the House of Paincakes (recently voted juiciest turkey in the American Mid-west).

I've not got much time to banter today, because I need to show you all something so amazing it may cause some face melting issues if I don't frame it right.  So let me introduce our new blog roll member a bit early:

You Hafta Say Zoom When You Move Your Flyer

Hey, folks. SinSynn here.

So, many Special Rules does 40k have again?
...I counted EIGHTY, from Acute Senses (which totally changed to some outflank-y thing now), to Zealot (which is new to me).


That's redonkulous.
Combine that with the fact that it seems like Games Workshop seemingly threw the 5th Edition Rulebook out a random window and started from scratch, and I gotta tell ya I'm finding my initial read-through of 6th Edition to be pretty darn funny.

*This is how I feel when I think I'm starting to understand the whole thing*
