TCM's Cargo Bay Ball Boardgame - Coming Soon!
Thursday, January 8, 2009

Okay, so I've been out of the world a while, but that hasn't diminished my love for two things: Firefly and gaming! So here's a sneak peek at the playtest version of what I've been working on while I've been gone. Cargo Bay Ball is a multiplayer strategy action game, based off the episode Bushwhacked where the crew is playing a homemade basketball-esque game, in the cargo bay of your favorite Firefly class transport. One of my favorite features of this game is the random aspect of both a loose ball, and a goal that hangs freely and thus rotates during gameplay. This is, aside from subject material, an original game of my design, and unlike anything I've ever played (and hopefully the same for you!) Once you've got the rules down, which doesn't take long, you can play a 3-on-3 game in under 45 minutes, as the game is always "in motion".

quick update:

exposed a flaw in game mechanics during playtesting this week to finalize rules, so there's gonna be a little delay as I fix things.

But I promise, this project is almost done!

Joss Whedon BWAH! card - re-release
Updated with the new link for my Firefly games, the original was only available to those who attended a special advanced screening of Serenity in Cincinnati, but now everyone can have one! I've tagged it with the addy as well to identify it as the new copy.

Visit the link on the card to download any and all games I've developed, available for FREE, as always, to all my fellow Browncoats. Thanks for carrying me all these years. :) You guys are the finest bunch of Rubens in the 'verse.

A variant, again, because I can. Share it if you like it :)

Because I could. :)

Captain Castle
A fellow Browncoat, goes by Watcho, was telling me how her sister was now watching Firefly because of Nathan Fillion in Castle. She retorted with "He was my Captain before he was your Castle", and lo, a new design was born in that moment. You can find this design in the old TCM SPACE BAZAAR at: or, if you're handy with an iron, as your legend tells, print it out and iron it on your own self. Enjoy!

Apples to Griswolds
Been out of the (game making) world a while, but I got a request late last year from a very dear friend, so I am making it a reality for them...and you! This is just the teaser. And there will be at least be at one rule in my version there isn't in the original Apples to Apples game. All I'll say is there'll be a little...*pop* ;)

Also, at the behest of fans, both past and current, I'm only doing this up in grayscale in order to go easy on printing because there'll be A LOT of cards, and I don't want to eat up folks' printer ink.

Firefly Valentines (blast from the past)
More of the same, only different. ;)

Firefly Valentines (blast from the past)
Dug these up, made 'em years back. Sharing again for you!
