In the new board game, BloodRunes, you are a Rune Caster for your clan. Can you cast the right runes onto the shared board to bring good Fortune to your clan or will you make a wrong move and allow another clan to steal from you?

In this strategy pattern creation game, you’ll need to watch the spell books of others while setting up your runes to bring you the most Fortune and win! Be sure and protect yourself with wards or break other wards to steal from opponents. If the wild rune of Loki shines upon you, be careful, it could help others as well. 

BloodRunes was successfully funded on Kickstarter!  We raised a little over $6,800 to bring this project to life.  Thank you to everyone who backed the project!  You are all awesome and beautiful people!  If you’d like to get in on the BloodRunes craze, you can still get your copy on the late Indiegogo pledge!  You’ve got a month before manufacturing and shipping begins to get in on this round of pledging. After that it goes to retail and the price will go up for the game!

Hey all, I've got so many comments on box cover art for BloodRunes and to be honest, I've never been fully stoked about the feel of it.  I currently have 2 different versions of the box cover art and have gotten feedback on both that lead to the other one.  😛 What I...

Really enjoyed the pattern building, tension in the choices, and paranoia-inducing player interaction.

A NOVELLA

 

Morty is a One. He’s been laboring his entire life, but finally it’s his sixtieth birthday. Time for him to retire his old body and travel up through the clouds to the White City where he’ll begin his new life as a One-Two. He’ll be given a new body and anything he wants as reward for his service. But once Processing begins, things don’t go exactly as planned. Can Morty figure out the secret before he is lost in the System all over again?

A fascinating read, the author taps into our constant quest for perfection, for a better life, and for that perfect love, but as with most things, they won’t come so easily.
