Scott Nicholson of www.boardgameswithscott.com fame has just posted a new video review of Castle Panic and it’s fantastic! We sent the game to Scott hoping he would have the time to review it and we guessed he would probably enjoy it, but this is something else.
Like all of Scott’s reviews, this one is really well done and he covers every part of the game with great detail. (In fact, I’m going to have to rework the “How to Play” video I’ve been working on because of this!) The best part though is how much Scott “gets it“. His review really captures the spirit of the game the way we intended it to be played and his excitement is contagious.
If you’ve never seen one of his reviews before, you’re in for a treat.
If you’re interested in reading a bit about how Castle Panic came about, you’re in luck.
The gamers over at Dream with Board Games have just posted an interview we did last week. It’s a fun read and they asked a lot of good questions about the creation of the game and my thoughts on the hobby business and gaming in general. Check it out.
Rincon sounds like it was a hoot. Lots of games, lots of fun and Wil Wheaton thrilling the crowd on Rock Band. During the con people were interviewed and asked what they thought “One Cool Thing” was at the show.
The whole video is pretty entertaining (especially former Austin gamer Richard Banana, aka: “Palm Guy“) but at about 7:34 Wil talks about his Cool Thing.
We’re proud to announce that we’ll be attending BoardGameGeekCon this November!
BoardGameGeekCon is a 4 day event that takes place in Dallas starting on November 19th and is put on by the website www.boardgamegeek.com.
At the convention, we will offer Castle Panic for sale at the regular price of $35.00. However, we are offering a special preorder discount if you place your order now, and you’ll be able to purchase a copy at the convention for only $30.00.
You can place your order by going to our Contact page and emailing us your name and how many copies you’d like to purchase. We’ll have your order waiting for you at the convention. Checks and cash will be accepted for payment then.
Castle Panic made a surprise appearance at Rincon in Tucson, Arizona over the weekend and everybody’s favorite geek, Wil Wheaton got a chance to play it. Since he called it “Incredibly fun” I’ve got to think that means he had a good time.
How cool is that?
Glad to hear you liked it Wil!
*UPDATE* Wil has posted a bit more on his blog. It’s a good read and a good recap of Rincon, which sounds like an absolute blast!
We’ll be headed down South to San Antonio tonight to run some demos of Castle Panic at the Dragon’s Lair located at 7959 Fredricksburg Rd #129.
We’ll be starting up around 7:00pm, so if you’re in the San Antonio area and haven’t had a chance to make it to an Austin demo, tonight’s a great opportunity to come see the game and have a delicious homemade cookie or two.
After lots of interruptions, I’ve finally gotten the News section up and running. Hooray for progress! I’m sure there will still be a few changes being made, so pardon any weirdness you may encounter as we get started.
This will be where we’ll post all of our latest news on everything from demos and reviews to new game updates. Stay tuned!
