Skullkickers Minis Now Part of the Rum & Bones Kickstarter!

The Skullkickers have just been announced as part of the Rum & Bones board game Kickstarter! They’re an exclusive set of 5 figures (complete with their own character-centric rules) only available as part of the Kickstarter pre-order process.

Skullkickers-Rum&Bones01

Rum & Bones is the new pirate-themed board game by Cool Mini Or Not, creators of ‘Zombicide’, one of my absolute favorite board games. I’ve been singing the praises of Zombicide for a couple years now and when I had a chance to meet the Cool Mini crew at Gen Con we talked about the possibility of teaming up in the future. Once they started work on Rum & Bones, we both felt it would be a great way to use the SK cast, especially since we had a pirate story of our own in Volume 3, ‘Six Shooter on the Seven Seas’.

As you can see, the character archetypes from Skullkickers marry themselves well to the Rum & Bones play style and the miniature sculpts look awesome!

Super Glyph Quest, With The Skullkickers and Much More!

Skullkickers-GlyphQuest

My dear friends Leanne Bayley and Alex Trowers have just released SUPER GLYPH QUEST, a fun spellcasting mini-RPG for mobile platforms (iPhone/iPad right now and Android still to come). If you enjoy match-3-style games like Puzzle Quest and Bejeweled, you’re going to love Glyph Quest’s strategic combos and colorful animations.

Even better, Super Glyph Quest includes a special Skullkickers quest against Thool! Yup, Rex and Rolf make their first video game appearance in the cute Glyph Quest style and it’s awesome. If you like Skullkickers you’ll definitely want to check this out.

SKQuest03

Also making our first video game appearance is Stacy and I! Yeah, my wife and I appear in the game as NPCs and our designers are ridiculously cute as well. Check ’em out!

Alex and Leanne included many of the long time Animex festival speakers in the game in background roles as NPCs throughout the game. It’s a cute Easter Egg that makes the game even more memorable for our friends.

So, if you want a fun new game title to play on your iPhone/iPad, SUPER GLYPH QUEST is it!

It’s $2.99, the price of a coffee, but it’s also ad free and doesn’t drag micropayment annoyances along behind it. It’s a wonderful self-contained title worth your time and support.

FA Comics: 4/5 “This will provide you the biggest laughs of the week, so much so that nothing else this week comes close.”

Comic Bastards: “Both of the guest artists have a wonderful style.”

Skullkickers #29 Reviews

skullkickers_29

Skullkickers #29, the final part of our fifth story arc, “A Dozen Cousins and a Crumpled Crown”, arrived last Wednesday. Here’s what critics thought of it:

Newsarama: 8/10 “…a multitude of explosive and colorful fight sequences that are just plain fun to read.”

Eat.Geek.Play.: “With a strong narrative voice, and a stoic stumbling cast, this book is one for the pull files.”

Comic Bastards: 4/5 “…it’s sometimes nice just to see a conflict come to a close with fisticuffs when fisticuffs are the only answers.”
