Coming Soon

Guess what’s going to the printer soon?
Here’s a hint.

“Why Skippy?” Some may have asked lately. “Why haven’t you been updating your site very much lately?”

Here’s why:

Important Announcement

Friday, September 16th, 2011

So a few weeks ago I got introduced to this guy (Who very specifically wishes to not be mentioned on this site.)  He likes some of the creative things I have done in the past.  Some of his friends have tried out some of the table top games I have created, and he saw how Please Don’t Wake Dagon did pretty well (And will be doing even better once they get the second printing up and going).


Important PDWD Announcement

Monday, August 22nd, 2011

The rapid success of PDWD thus far means that we will be upgrading the print method to be able to produce more copies of the game. One of the fringe benefits of the new printing service is that we will be able to cram even more gaming goodness into the box.

Skippy Sells Out.

Monday, August 22nd, 2011

Or to be more specific, the orders of Please Don’t Wake Dagon printed for sales at cons have already sold out, after only two conventions. The publisher considers the game to be very successful.

More print runs to follow. For those of you that ordered a copy, these sales did not include your copy, the internet orders were a separate print run and will be mailed very soon. More news about my game to follow, but at present my children are busy letting me know that it as unacceptable for Daddy to be gone for three days.

D This, D That.

I’ve played Dungeons & Dragons (3.5) for a few years now. I’ve heard some great stories about happenings in Pencil & Paper RPGs (whatever version they may have occured in) from friends, strangers, and Skippy himself.

Regrettably, I only get to play about once a week. Granted, we have a 12 hour “play and hangout” session, but that’s because everyone’s work schedules (or, in my case, lack of a work schedule) all happen to link up nicely on Tuesday evening. That will probably not last forever, and then I’ll get even less D&D.

I’m going to try to keep this post as friendly and informative to people who have never been graced with the righteous feel of their very first d20 in their hands. (If you don’t know what “d20” means, don’t worry – I’ll get to it.)



Tuesday, May 13th, 2008

Around a week or so ago I got my first official board game rejection.

Despite how that sounds, this is actually pretty good news.

You see, I have submitted my designs to publishers in the past. But no one has ever actually bothered to tell me that they don’t want it. Usually they just ignore me.

Heck one company, which will remain nameless, expressed interest, told me they liked my game and wanted to run with it, and then never spoke to me again.

And so an actual honest-to-goodness rejection letter is actually a step up.

This time they cared enough to tell me to buzz off.

I’m still waiting to hear from some other potential publishers and I’m also looking into the possibility of self-publishing, either by making it a downloadable file that the customers print themselves or by actually shelling out the bucks for a print run.

Of course, this means that I would have to also find an artist to make all of the illustrations. So if you know an illustrator that works cheap and can follow instructions, please encourage them to contact me.

Also, if you know anything about the Board Game Industry, or just happen to own a publishing company, feel free to email me about this.

Details about my new project are here.
