Posted in Uncategorized on December 31, 2013 by boccobsblog

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

Madison Square Garden can seat 20,000 people for a concert. This blog was viewed about 61,000 times in 2013. If it were a concert at Madison Square Garden, it would take about 3 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

Dungeon Attack Kickstarter

Posted in Gaming Culture, Product Review with tags , , , on August 19, 2013 by boccobsblog

The guys from Attack Dice, the makers of When Zombies Attack, are funding their second game through Kickstarter. The newest game, Dungeon Attack, follows the same AD premise of fast paced, easy to learn, and easy on the wallet, but with a fantasy flavor.

Funding a game on Kickstarter is a great way to get the games for a cheaper price, get them weeks before they hit the store, and a chance to get exclusive content.

Curious about Dungeon Attack? The rules can be downloaded for free from AD’s website.

Check out the Dungeon Attack Kickstarter!

According to Wizards.com:

You may have just heard about this announcement: DeNA is currently working on a D&D mobile game. Arena of War is a party-based battle game set within the Forgotten Realms—and it has a heavy emphasis on boss battles! Worldwide release is currently scheduled for late July.

Look for further news and information about this title on their site.

The game will be free and supported on both Apple products (Iphone and Ipad) and Android devices.

Should be cool.

Holding true to their new motto, “Every Edition Available Again!”, Wizards of the Coast is reprinting the original D&D boxset. From Wizards.com:

 

A premium, deluxe edition of the Original D&D “White Box”!

The original Dungeons & Dragons boxed set was published by TSR, Inc. in 1974 and was the very first roleplaying game, introducing concepts that have persisted throughout later editions. It included three small rules booklets in a white box.

This deluxe, premium reprint of the original “White Box” features new packaging and includes the following seven booklets (plus, reference sheets):

  • Volume 1: Men & Magic
  • Volume 2: Monsters & Treasure
  • Volume 3: Underworld & Wilderness Adventures
  • Supplement I: Greyhawk
  • Supplement II: Blackmoor
  • Supplement III: Eldritch Wizardry
  • Supplement IV: Gods, Demi-Gods & Heroes

Each booklet features new cover art but is otherwise a faithful reproduction of the original, including original interior art.

Item Details
Item Code: 45390000
Release Date: November 19, 2013
Format: D&D Boxed Game
Price: $149.99; C$172.00
ISBN: 978-0-7869-6465-9
 

 I think it would be fun to own an run a campaign with, but a hundred and fifty dollars is expensive…
