Suburbia – Collector’s Edition Now Live on Kickstarter

Last week, I announced (along with probably every boardgame news and blog outlet out there, but I like to think I broke the story) (Editor – Indulge him. It can only help) that the Suburbia – Collector’s Edition was coming to Kickstarter.

Today’s the day!

The Collector’s Edition, designed by Ted Alspach and published by Bezier Games, is now live and there are a few more pictures to show you as well.


There are a lot more details to give you too.

Suburbia Collectors Edition Coming to Kickstarter on January 14

Suburbia was one of my first board game purchases when I came back to the hobby many years ago. It’s still one of my favourite games.

Designed by Ted Alspach, this is a tile-laying game where each player is trying to build the most populace city borough (i.e. get the most victory points). The game is best known for how the various tiles and their colours interact with each other, both positively and negatively.

It’s long been a popular game, but one of the knocks against it has been the rather plain graphic design (not to mention the 5-Star expansion, the less said about the better, though obviously Ted disagrees.).

Was that the main reason you didn’t pick it up?

If so, have I got news for you.



The Suburbia: Collector’s Edition is coming to Kickstarter on January 14, with a projected release date of October 2019.

New to Me – September 2018

After an August that was gangbusters, September slowed down on the “New to Me” front, but I still did enough that I was able to keep my role as cult leader.

There was no attempted insurrection this month, though that could have been because I secretly switched the coffee in the lunch room to decaf.

Use of this picture does not equal endorsement, since I find all coffee to be icky anyway.

I’m evil that way, but aren’t most cult leaders?

It’s a good thing I did, too, because they could have come after me. Most of the games in this month’s list came out in 2018, except one that came out in 2017.

That’s hardly avoiding the “Cult of the New” phenomenon!

In my defense, though, I only own one of these (the 2017 game), so it’s not like I succumbed to temptation that much. (Editor: UPS driver at the door with your latest 401 Games delivery).

That’s not what it looks like…

So without further adieu (all of my adieu hopped a train and headed west anyway), let’s begin!

New to Me – August 2018

After last month’s horribly slim post, August was a cornucopia of new to me games! Spanning from the distant past of 2011 to the near future of 2019.

This should make my good buddy David at Roll to Review happy.

I have a full nine games listed for this month.

There was much cheering among my fellow cult members when I made that announcement.

Cheering Crowd

What can I say? They love me.

Of course, that monthly payment I make to them might help.

What was I saying?

Oh, right. New to me games!

Maybe you’ll find a game or two among all of these lovely games that you’ll like as well. I hope that’s the case.

So without further adieu (all of my adieu was batted off the table and under a shelf by the cat anyway), let’s begin!

Dragonflight 39 – Another Successful Convention

Every August, there is a wonderful boardgaming convention in Bellevue, Washington, called Dragonflight.

It’s been held at the Hilton hotel there, and I’ve been going to it since 2015.

This past weekend was the 2018 version of it, and it was just as much fun as it usually is.

Even the Doctor was there!

Where are the Daleks?

Somewhere, anyway. She must have been hiding.

I’m not going to go into detail on the new games I played on this fabulous weekend, as those will be in the monthly “New to Me” post that I will be doing later this week.

However, I will list the games I played and just talk in general about the experience.

Werewolves Join the Legacy Movement

Bezier Games is really killing it recently, and they have yet another announcement today.

Ultimate Werewolf Legacy is designed by Ted Alspach and Rob Daviau, and it’s going to be coming out around GenCon this year. It’s another permutation of the Werewolf franchise.

What is the legacy element?

Werewords Deluxe Now on Kickstarter!

Longtime readers of this blog (hi Bob!) will remember from a couple of weeks ago my post about Werewords Deluxe and how it was coming to Kickstarter on March 5 from Bezier Games.

Unless I’m in some kind of wibbly wobbly, timey wimey sort of situation, I think today is March 5.

Checking Kickstarter, I do indeed see Werewords Deluxe on there!
