Mermaids vs. Unicorns!

MvsU Mockup
Mermaids vs. Unicorns is the sequel to Cupcakes vs. Brownies. The print book and ebook will release on September 26th but you can start pre-ordering it now!

The cover was done by the amazing Michael Regnia. He really played with the perspective and did a fantastic job ensuring the art was action packed.

I’m super excited for everyone to read the further adventures of Karim and Zimmah as well as get to know some of our new characters like Whitney and Gramps.

Like last year, I will be selling the base calendar all fall but this is your ONLY chance to get a custom calendar where you get to pick what photos that go in it. In addition, those who get a custom calendar also get to add their own custom holidays. So don’t miss your chance to get it.

Tiny Epic Kingdom Preview!

I got my hands on an early copy of Tiny Epic Kingdom and I loved it! The production quality on the finished game is simply fabulous. Gamelyn Games definitely does custom meeples better than any other company I’ve seen which is awesome cause meeples are one of my favorite things to photograph!

Earlier this year I previewed the game and talked to its designer Scott Almes so if you want to know more about it make sure you check it out. Otherwise enjoy the photos!

TSS Dice In The Mouth Challenge!

The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge has been spreading like wildfire, which is fabulous. ALS is a more than a worthy cause. But don’t forget that there are a lot of other amazing charities. Personally, I’m a big fan of Hospice. What those men and woman do is heartbreaking hard work that truly makes a difference. The last year of my father’s life would’ve been drastically different if Hospice hadn’t helped us.

Of course if you don’t have a charity that you already have an emotional attachment for then I suggest checking out Gamers for Cures, founded by Dan Patriss.

“Gamers for Cures is something I came up with about 4 years ago,” Patriss said. “Shortly after Lauren, my daughter, got diagnosed with Turner Syndrome, I wanted to find a way to give back. At the time there were tons of people doing Extra Life for video gaming, but almost no one was doing it for board games. Since we have about the best community of any for any hobby I decided to try and create a charity. The initial idea was to do 2 events a year. One, our main one would be a 24 hour Board Game Marathon to benefit Turner Syndrome Society of the US, and the other a Breast cancer walk in the spring.”
