Rapid Fire Friday News Roundup!


Several newsworthy (to me) stories happened over the last couple of days. In no particular order:

1) I lied for a second time. First, I incorrectly identified Elder Scrolls: Betrayal of the Second Era as the next game from Chip Theory Games. Then, their real next game, 20 Strong, did not launch on Gamefound on my promised date of October 18th, but was delayed a week until October 25th. The reason for the delay was COVID hitting the CTG team. The team is doing well, and my wallet appreciated the one-week break.

2) Steamforged Games released its first designer diary for Elden Ring, coming to Kickstarter on November 22nd. The diary discusses how to properly scope and bring a game of Elden Ring’s massive size to the tabletop. You can read the details here.

Oathsworn3) The second printing for Oathsworn is live on Kickstarter and has almost surpassed its original funding (it is within $130k as of the time I wrote this) with 25 days to go. It includes a cheap, $15 second edition upgrade for backers of the first printing. I feel safe with declaring it cheap because it includes two revised rulebooks, improved encounters and over 200 updated cards. You can back the new printing or grab your update pack by clicking the link above.

4) Speaking of second printings, Trick Shot, a game I have always wanted to play, is currently on Gamefound. Similar to Oathsworn, not only is the second edition available, but a €15 updated pack is available as well. A full list of changes is provided on the campaign page. If Trick Shot interests you, click this link.

Iron Maiden5) For the seven of you who are boardgame aficionados that also read my Boardgame Quest news updates, love and support CMON, and ALSO love Iron Maiden, you are welcome. To be fair, that is a very specific niche within a niche within a niche (it’s like marketing Inception), but I wanted to make you aware in case it catches your interest.

That’s it for today. Have a great weekend!
