Rock Paper Wizard Announcement from WizKids!

A brand new game from not only Sen-Foong Lim and myself, but also co-designed (and graphically designed) by Josh Cappel has just been announced! Check out this brief synopsis of our upcoming social game, Rock Paper Wizard, set in the Dungeons and Dragons world! We’re super excited to be able to contribute to this world – and we’re excited to design a game with our Bamboozle Cousin, Josh! Expect to see the game in January 2017.

Akrotiri is getting a reprint!

AkroWell this is lovely news! We heard from Filosofia, the publisher of Akrotiri that they are completely sold out of Akrotiri – but the orders from game stores keep pouring in – so another print run has been ordered! That’s fantastic news! No news on when it should be available, but if you want the game, keep bugging your friendly local game stores!

Overview of Godfather: A New Don video

Godfather-boxWhile at Origins, Nate from IDW Games was asked by Learn to Play to give an overview of how Godfather: A New Don works. He does an admirable job going through all the aspects of the game – but there are still some interesting things left to explore once it is released this summer! Remember to pre-order from your favourite local game store!

Godfather: A New Don Launch Video

To help better explain our new Godfather: A New Don game (from IDW Games), we made a video! I have a starring role in the video and Sen created the cool Godfather-esque music for it! The video gives a quick rundown of how the game works so you have more information about whether this game is for you or not (trust me – it is for you!!). Ask your local your store to pre-order it for you can be the coolest person on the block!

Bearded Meeple reviews Junk Art

Our second video review of Junk Art just popped up online! This time it’s from the infamous Bearded Meeple. He reviews the components and some of the rules (there are many ways to play) and then gives his thoughts on the game. Some key sound bites that I enjoyed:

“We had a lot of fun playing it.”

“I like the obscure pieces in it and I really like the cards.”

“It’s not the same game every time you play it.”

“I like it! I hope you get a chance to check it out.”

Thanks Bearded Meeple!

Junk Art Makes Top 10 Games at Origins!

Junk Art is majunk art-imageking a showing at Origins before its official debut at GenCon later this year. For one blogger – who totally doesn’t even like dexterity games – it made his top 10 list of games he’s played at Origins so far! Wow – that’s great praise considering how many games are on display at Origins! If you’re at Origins – please take a photo of you playing Junk Art and send it our way! I’d love to see your art!! Email to jay (at) bamboozlebrothers.com.

Video Preview of upcoming Godfather: A New Don

Well, it’s a bit of a teaser header – but we do have a video of Nate Murray from IDW sharing all the cool info about our new game with The Dice Tower. This just popped into my radar now but has been available for a couple of months. Nate talks about the mechanics and how excited he is about the game that Sen and I made – yay! Fast forward to 5:57 for the magic!

Akrotiri in top 5 Pick up and Deliver Games!

The Dice Tower often creates top 10 videos based on various mechanics, and the recent one was for Pick Up and Deliver. This video also welcomed another board game podcast icon to the show – Rahdo! It was Rahdo that placed Akrotiri as his #4 favourite Pick up and Deliver game of all time. That’s high praise coming from someone who’s played and reviewed so many games! It’s surprising that Tom hasn’t played it yet though – considering he’s loved all of our previous games! Maybe we’ll have to send him one!

Dice Tower loves Junk Art!

The first video review of our upcoming game, Junk Art, by Pretzel Games, has landed online – and is by none other than Tom Vasel from the Dice Tower. Tom got to play the game for the first time while he was at The Gathering a couple weeks ago, but then was able to snag his own copy. The bottom line? Tom loves it and gives it his Seal of Approval!

I really enjoyed hearing him say, “The designers of the game, Jay Cormier and Sen-Foong Lim have done some excellent games, so I was willing to give it a chance.” Cool that we’ve made enough good games that reviewers are now knowing who we are!🙂

Other standout comments from Tom:

“Guys, this game really has blown me away!”

“I was really surprised that they took this concept…and make it into an excellent, fun game.”

“The fact that every game has a different feel, is really neat.”

“If you do like skill based dexterity games this is honestly one of the best to come out in years.”

“Highly recommend it. HIGHLY recommend it!”

Wow – awesome stuff! Thanks Tom for the wonderful words!
