If you think you’ve had all the fun Castle Panic has to offer, you’re in for a surprise! When we released the game we included a few Optional Rules that allow players to tweak the gameplay and experiment with new ways to play. During development we generated a lot of other ideas to add new challenges to the game and now we’ve gathered those rules into one convenient document that you can view here or even download as a pdf.
It’s hard to believe that it was only back in September that we released Castle Panic to the world. A few weeks later and we started to hear good things about our game. Lots of good press and some great reviews added to the buzz and the next thing you know Castle Panic is flying off the shelves.
Time does fly though, and thanks to everyone who helped promote us, or encouraged a friend to pick up a copy, we are just about sold out of our first print run!
Not to panic though (I know, I know, but, I couldn’t resist it…) the reprint is officially underway! There are still lots of copies out there to be had, but the next supply will be arriving early next year. So if for some reason you can’t get your copy right away, you shouldn’t have very long to wait.
Just a reminder, if you’re going to be at BGGCon this year you can pre-order Castle Panic for only $30.00 and a copy will be waiting for you at the convention. You don’t pay until you pick it up, but time is running out.
The final day to place your preorder will be Friday the 13th (just to further enhance the spookiness). After that you will still be able to buy the game at the convention, but it will be at full price.
If you’d like to place a pre-order, visit our CONTACT page and let us know how many copies you’d like to reserve.
Thanks and see you at BGGCon!
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 couldn’t be more flattered.
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.
You can email us your order here.
See you at the con!
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!
