Point Economies and Mysteries

Hey Folks. This week Phil finds a book, we pull point economies off the wall in the garage, Meta-game gets a discussion, Love Letter gets a look, we delve into mysteries in the workshop, and I saw Captain America but Phil hadn’t so I spoil nothing. I hope you enjoy the show. Also I think our combined sleep for the previous night was eight hours and I got three of them.

Crowdfunding

Local

  • QCC Kickstarter video is done and we’re just waiting on the folks from Amazon and Kickstarter to approve the project so with any luck the project will be live when you hear this.

  • UBCon is this weekend and I’ll be hanging out at the Universal Gaming / QCC table selling the convention. That’s right. You can sign up on site if you’d like or ask me any questions about the QCC. Also I’ll be running some Savage Elhal on Staurday night so look for the Savage Satruday Night event at UBCon and show up. Everyone gets to play at Savage Saturday night. I also might be convinced to run some Dungeon World after.
