Station Fall Rollaway MADRIS

July 15th, 2013

I just wanted to leave a note here about the development diary that I’ve started for a game called Leonis. It’s a cooperative tile-laying, set-collecting, hand-management, and deck-building game set in Arthurian Space. It’s coming along very nicely so far, and you can follow the development of this game here.

Congratulations to all of the participants and finalists on a job well done.

Rollaway is now available at https://www.thegamecrafter.com/games/rollaway


Rollaway is an abstract dice game about picking the right time to play whatever actions you roll. The interaction of six simple actions (win, lose, skip, double, give, and take) produces a rich variety of gameplay. A die that normally scores one point could earn you four, or could be taken away. You might use a skip-die to prevent the next player from giving you a burdensome lose-die, or you might take the lose-die so you can pass it on to someone else. Rollaway is simple to learn, highly interactive, and provides hours of lightly strategic fun.

I’m excited to announce the release of my first card game: Politics and Corruption. Now available here.

As lobby and campaign spending soars to record highs, Congressional approval ratings plummet to all-time lows. Explore the influence of money on Congress while playing this educational card game. You’ll collect and deploy capital to help pass or block actual bills of the 112th U.S. Congress. But choose your battles wisely. Winning requires strategy, opportunism, and a touch of good luck.
