FREE PRINT AND PLAY!
We're self isolating as I'm sure many of you are. And so as a show of support to all the families staying in and keeping each other safe, I've decided to make the Print and Play version of Longboat free for the time being. Just head to our site and get it through the store. I hope it helps keep people sane ?

I've decided to release my first game, Walking Doggos, as a free print and play game. Previously it was available on Drive Thru Cards and The Game Crafter, but due to recent events both sites are basically shut down until further notice. Since the game is no longer available for sale, I have decided to release it for free.

The game is now available for download at https://walkingdoggos.com, https://afrozenpeach.itch.io/walking-doggos, and soon will be listed on the BGG's files as soon as admins approve it.

I hope you enjoy!

The Creator of this new Roll & Write in the same universe as Tanuki Market shared the file on Facebook. The rules are in French. Here is the announcement (translated by Facebook):

Quote:
tanuki Matsuri ?⛩?, download the print and play: https://bit.ly/TanukiMatsuri

You may know tanuki Market ??????? my latest game published by Superlude and distributed by Pixie Games? Well, I did a roll and write suite called tanuki Matsuri ?⛩?? It's played in 15 minutes from 2 to 6 players with 4 dice. There's even a solo mode ?

Download, print, play, share!

tanuki Matsuri is still a prototype in development. I keep working on it and I'll be happy to get your feedback so I can improve it ?

I would like to thank Naïade and Antoine Davrou for allowing me to use the illustrations. I also thank the first players who tested the game, the authors of the MALT-Mouvement des Auteurs Ludiques Toulousains of course, but also Max Riock, Robin Favier, Marie-Line Elau, Simon Le Passe Temps, Fred PixieGames , and all the players off at the Cannes festival last February ?

I hope you like this little game and become big

Board Game: Atlantis Rising: Medusa Unleashed
"Pay What You Can" Expansion with a portion of proceeds going to WHO's COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund

NOTE: EXPANSION REQUIRES BASE GAME Atlantis Rising (Second Edition)

Elf Creek Games has released a PnP expansion for Atlantis Rising (Second Edition)

This can be obtained for free, but a portion of all proceeds will go to Coronavirus Response.

From the website:

https://elf-creek-games.myshopify.com/collections/atlantis-r...

Quote:
Medusa has come. Will she be friend or foe?

Medusa Unleashed is a new module for Atlantis Rising and can be used with any player count, though with new cosmic gate components optimized for use by 1-3 players. The new expansion introduces Monsters, persistent misfortunes that continue to hinder your progress once activated.


This print-and-play mini-expansion can be downloaded here for printing at home! We’re offering this print-and-play as a “Pay What you Can” product, and a portion of all proceeds will go to the World Health Organization’s COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund. We suggest a donation of $5 to $10. But, again, please pay what you can.

As we all do our part to stop the spread of COVID-19 through social distancing, it can be difficult to fill out the player count for our favorite board games. This new reality sparked a discussion in the Fantasy Flight Games “digital office” about which of our non-cooperative games might be best suited to being played solo! Since I had recently designed the upcoming Terra Incognita expansion, Civilization: A New Dawn came to mind quite naturally.

It occurred to me that the focus row in Civilization: A New Dawn is perfect for operating a programmed opponent, and thus, the idea for the Automated Player was born!

The Automated Player (or AP) uses an unused player’s components and focus bar, with the focus row essentially functioning as a highly simplified version of the code that operates the AI opponents in the Civilization video games, providing a series of instructions for how the AP functions. On the AP’s turn, it will resolve the focus card in the “5” slot of its focus row and reset that card to the “1” slot. To assist with that, the AP has its own set of unique focus cards, designed specifically to remove decisions from the AP’s turn so that you won’t feel like you’re playing for the AP yourself. You can download these focus cards (27 MB), along with the rules (8.5 MB) and start playing today!
