Video Moment From Unpub 3: Cardboard Edison

During Unpub 3, I tried my best to make the technology work to do some video demos with some of the designers and publishers. While this didn’t always work on Saturday, I was able to make it work on Sunday and did as many as I could throughout the day. Today I bring you two games from the duo known as Cardboard Edison. Apart from being great conduits of game design information and inspiration(see their Cardboard Edison site and follow them on Twitter,)Chris and Suzanne Zinsli are game designers as well. They brought Skewphemisms (a party game based on alliteration,) and Tessen (a real time card game that’s interactive, fast, furious, and fun.) In today’s video they talk about both games and show some of the goodness they’ve created. KEEP READING AFTER THE VIDEO FOR SOME NEWS ABOUT CARDBOARD EDISON!   As of this morning I am happy to report that Tessen has found a publisher! AJ Porfirio has announced this morning that his company Van Ryder Games will be publishing Tessen! From the press release: “Van Ryder Games, a publisher of card and board games, has secured the rights to publish Tessen from designers Chris and Suzanne Zinsli. Tessen is a 2 player card game that is simple to learn and plays incredibly fast. Players must manage a hand of cards and collect sets in real-time, all while attacking and fending off their opponent. In a game of Tessen, players will have to move fast and think even faster! Van Ryder Games is owned and operated by A.J. Porfirio and seeks to publish unique and thematic games. Van Ryder Games has published one game,”If I’m Going Down…” (2012) to date and has others in the works including Tessen and Hostage Negotiator.” Remember, AJ was part of our publisher panel and brought Hostage Negotiator along for play-testing. This pick-up is a direct result of these two forces being together at Unpub 3! We’re always excited to hear success stories and this one is a winner. We’ve got the start of next year’s designer panel for Unpub 4! We’ll keep you posted with news about Tessen as it...

Video Moment From Unpub 3: Garrett Herdter

During Unpub 3, I tried my best to make the technology work to do some video demos with some of the designers and publishers. While this didn’t always work on Saturday, I was able to make it work on Sunday and did as many as I could throughout the day. As most people will know by now, I didn’t get to play many games at Unpub 3. One of the few I did get to play came from the subject of today’s Video Moment, Garrett Herdter.   In the video he talks about both games he exhibited at Unpub 3. In a few weeks I’ll post some footage from the game of Rolling For Amusement that I played. For now, talk a few moments and learn about these two projects from an entirely fascinating...

Video Moment From Unpub 3: Jay Treat

During Unpub 3, I tried my best to make the technology work to do some video demos with some of the designers and publishers. While this didn’t always work on Saturday, I was able to make it work on Sunday and did as many as I could throughout the day. I am always very excited to sit and have a chat with Jay Treat. He’s got a ton of great game ideas and he’s a pleasure to talk to. Luckily I was able to pull him away from some play-tests at Unpub 3 and have a little chat with him. In today’s video you’ll find out a little on three of Jay’s current projects: Assault on Khyber Station, Intrigue and Last...

Video Moment From Unpub 3: Austin and Aaron & Post Position

During Unpub 3, I tried my best to make the technology work to do some video demos with some of the designers and publishers. While this didn’t always work on Saturday, I was able to make it work on Sunday and did as many as I could throughout the day. Today’s video moment is about Post Position by Austin Smokowicz and Aaron Honsowetz. This game has been high on my list for some time now, but I still haven’t had a chance to play it. After talking with them and hearing reactions from the crowd at Unpub 3, I am going to try harder to play this game!...

Video Moment From Unpub 3: Jason Tagmire & Maximum Throwdown

During Unpub 3, I tried my best to make the technology work to do some video demos with some of the designers and publishers. While this didn’t always work on Saturday, I was able to make it work on Sunday and did as many as I could throughout the day. Today’s video moment stars Jason Tagmire. His main game at the event was Maximum Throwdown, which was well received all over the place (it kind of roamed from table to table.) Jason also exhibited Pixel Lincoln 2 during the event, the original Pixel Lincoln will hitting store shelves...
