Collection Conjunction - What’s your Recollection?

No comments:

I haven’t been in the modern board gaming scene, with both feet, for very long. I played mostly video (PC) games over the years, did a few turns with Magic the Gathering (1993 to 1997 or so), and played Warhammer 40,000 (and related Games Workshop trappings) on and off for about 15 years.
I put one foot in the modern boardgame door circa 2000-2003. Games that got a lot of play time included Illuminati, Munchkin, Drakkon, Honor of the Samurai, and a handful others. These games don’t get the most love here on the Geek, so to appease the masses; yes we did play Settlers of Catan a few times. I also started designing a number of games during this period of time, mostly card based games.

I brought the other foot through about two years ago after stumbling upon the geek (fall 2010). I certainly knew about the assortment of modern boardgames having frequented various hobby stores over the years, but I didn’t really “know the scene” (you know what I mean?). Since finding BGG and getting into the hobby more I’ve built up my game collection, from about 50-60 to around 100 in total.

Hegemonic on Course for Publication!

No comments:
Good news for those who have been following the progress of Hegemonic’s design + development, the game has been picked up for publication by Minion Games!

Minion Games has released some great games, mostly recently The Manhattan Project, and I feel they will do a great job with Hegemonic. I will continue to be involved throughout the process of finalizing the design and other aspects of the production, which Minion Games and myself are both very excited about. Nothing is set as far as release a date goes, but we are aiming for somewhere in the latter half of 2013.

For the time being, I want to thank everyone who has given their input and feedback throughout the design process. The game would not be where it is today without your enthusiasm and encouragement, so please stay tuned for more updates and details in the months ahead!
