In other Dungeons & Dragons news, a board game was also announced today from Hasbro and Wizards of the Coast that helps new players bridge the gap between board games and the complex RPG world of D&D.


Looking forward to BC's AAR  ;D

I think we may have been a little..economical with the truth.

"Hanseatic Wheat Orgy" is my contemptuous, generic term for pointless Euro games.

I actually don't really like games.

And the market for those pointless Euro games is so crazy that if he actually published "Hanseatic Wheat Orgy" it would pay for his next car.

BC would have 2 copies pre-ordered.

Right - who knows how to set up a KS? Lets buy up a few meeples and we're in business!

Sub-title to be ' Hanseatic Wheat Orgy Farmers Vs Pebbled Concrete Dongle Monsters'

Hmmm from the Kickstarter regarding mechanics..

"Placing a peasant on the wheat track boosts your standing for harvest, (every 4th turn).  The higher your standing on the harvest track, the more shillings you will earn come harvest time. Shillings can be placed on the Carnavalsoptochtvoorbereidingswerkzaamheden track to unlock unique buildings that will change the way you play and earn VP, or redeemed for Aankoopcertificaat, which are used to bid for sheep cards generated on market day, (every 3rd turn). Of course, the greater variety of sheep cards you possess, the greater the value of the set. Sheep cards can be redeemed for sheeples, which can be placed into fields to generate victory points, or combined to create Pigs, Cows, and Horses, which can be placed into their respective Pens, Farmyards, and Barns to generate victory points each turn. Wheat can also be used to create new peasants.  Peasants can be placed on the Orgy track to increase the Hanseatic pleasure level and earn victory points, BUT keep in mind that if the Hanseatic pleasure level reaches 20, this triggers the end of the game."

those are just the basic rules.  Doug's working on the advanced ones as a stretch goal

Random acts of genius and other inspirations of applied violence.

Y'know, anyone who didn't really know us, and read this, would think that we're a really weird bunch.
