Parallax kingsforge components

King's Forge

The last Kings Forge met with an unfortunate accident involving his head and an axe so it seems the position is currently available. Local peasants are encouraged to apply for the role by crafting four items from the Kings wish list. The first to do so gets the job (and hopefully some sort of metal neck protector!) Kings Forge is a 2-4 player pool building, dice rolling, drafting game.


We love our tea here! I’m talking proper tea, not that weird stuff they all drink when I go to Dallas! I’m a sold English Breakfast Girl myself, but Rob is known to be partial to a bit of Chai so I figured it was time we take a look at this!In Chai, you take on the role of a tea merchant, crafting and combining ingredients to fulfil your customers' orders.

Trool Park

Ever wanted to run your own theme park? It’d be fun, right? Your guests would have a blast, but it’s going to take a lot of work from you. Don’t forget the weather will mess things up, oh, and the inspector is due to give her verdict soon, a walk in the (Trool) park!

Board Game Advent Calender

This year I have failed to buy an Advent Calender and then realised we have one sat in our front room. 25 cubes, ok it will be 24 days until Christmas Day. But we can get a game on the big day too. What is the fun of an advent calender? Well, of course it's spending forever trying to find the right door number whilst trying desperately to contain our desire for chocolate that is ok at best.

Spiel 2018, Essen - What colour do you play?

This was our sixth year at Essen, and I see so many regular faces be they designers, publishers, fellow content creators and friends alike year on year that this was a perfect opportunity for a fun project. I hope you enjoy it.

BGG.CON 2018

29 plays of 25 different games over 6 days can only mean one thing! Yup, it’s BGG Con time. Not only do I get to hang out with some of my favourite people that I only see once a year, but I get to sit and play games for days with no interruption from working in any capacity.


Photos of games I play, conventions I attend and places I go and occasionally cats.

Stimulus Games have launched Movie Empire on Kickstarter today and we produced a short (preview and learn to play) film in celebration. They have already at 25% so if you like the look of it I recommend checking out their campaign. "...A medium-weight movie production strategy board game for 2-4 players. "I love the smell of worker placement in the morning"...." https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/stimulus-games/movie-empire?utm_source=iplayred https://iplayred.co.uk
