The Brothers Chaps (Homestar Runner) and James Ernest (Cheapass Games) have come together via Kickstarter (FULLY FUNDED 7/17/18) to present:

Trogdor!! The Board Game

Now, through the magic of giving someone your money, you will be able to play as Keepers of Trogdor, dedicated to helping in full decimation of all peasants, land and thatched huts. Trogdor will burninate the entire village, but only with your help.

The base level donation gets you a pretty sweet board, box and painted  wooden meeples. (Sooo cool!)

The next donation level up gets you the same game, in addition to the meeples, you will be granted plastic minis in full colored detail!

At the Wyrmwood Beefy Tier you get a wyrmwood board, the entire contents of the game, including the fully detailed plastic minis! 

At the Wyrmwood Consummate level you get everything above plus a stylish but lazy susan on which to play the very game you’re backing!

Pretty fancy stuff, with more to come as stretch-goals are met.

The Future is a Plethora of Strange Caviar

by Anthony Wetmore (TheMisterPipes, GhostConch)

Say hello to the Imperial Spherificator, your newest absolutely unnecessary must have kitchen appliance. What is this strange technology? Why am I drawn to it’s sleek curves and bright blue light? I will tell you! The Imperical Spherificator will change the way you play with your food. Imagine garnishing a roast lamb with a cool mint jelly caviar, topping your favorite ice cream with your other favorite ice cream, or even a refreshing fruit flavored mix in for your morning yogurt? Sounds too good to be true, but this device promises just that, as quoted here:

“any food that can be liquefied and blended, mixes it with a bit of sodium alginate and then ejects drops of it into a calcium chloride. …the reaction creates a thin membrane that encases the liquid in a gelatinous sphere. …texture like caviar, or if you use dairy and freeze…[like] Dippin’ Dots.”

The Imperial Sphereificator is still in it’s funding stage over at Kickstarter but they’re getting very close.
