May 30, 2023: Tribes On Kickstarter
We have activated the pre-launch page for the Kickstarter campaign for the second edition of Tribes.
In Tribes, you and your fellow players (4 to 8, plus an optional referee) will become cave men and women, facing the challenges of survival in a prehistoric world. Hunt and gather food, craft the basic tools you need, establish tribal laws, and deal with natural disasters, all while protecting and caring for your most precious resource: your children. The goal is simple but vital – have the most children who live to grow up! You have to put your offspring first, but a strong tribe benefits everyone too . . . balancing cooperation and self-preservation is the key.
So it's very much a competitive/cooperative situation.
Along with Dr. David Brin, author of the Uplift series and a whole lot of other excellent SF, I designed this game many years ago (not quite in the Paleolithic, but close). . . . [more]Share this post!
May 29, 2023: Crowdfunding Focus: Life-Sized Dino Figures
Do you want life-sized dinosaur models?
. . . is that even a question?
Limelight Miniatures, whose excellent work is featured in our upcoming Foes 2 collection, has 3D printable dinosaur models on Kickstarter, in – you guessed it – 1:1 scale. Naturally, they're some of the smallest species, and they come pre-hollowed and ready to print in pieces. This is not something I've seen anyone do before. And the results are spectacular.
This painted life-size Anchiornis huxleyi was done by Andy's Dinosaur Reviews on YouTube. Watch his full review here.
You get a Cartorhynchus, Anchiornis huxleyi, Epidexipteryxhui, baby Archaeoceratops, Falcatus falcatus (yes, he knows it's a shark), and Nemicolopterus, an adorable pterosaur, each in several poses. They have nicely scupted bases that include the name and time period. It makes me want to start my own museum!
There are 30 models . . .
