It did that shortly afterwards, so I owe you guys that, too. here it is: PTA Series Kit: MCU: Gotham Then I said if the kickstarter hits 950 backers, I would do up one for something in the Zurvivor setting, which spawned three actual shows (Zurvivor, about a reality tv show set on Zombie Island; COPZ, a COPS-like show during the outbreak on the mainland; and Safety in Numbers, set a bit later...

Gen Con 2013: The Stuff To Get Post

This year at Gen Con, I'll be working with Pulp Gamer, who are doing video coverage of Gen Con for Mayfair Games. We'll be there covering the Catan North American Championship on Sunday and the totally free block party on Thursday evening (over on Georgia Street, where the food trucks are). In previous years, I post lists of stuff to get. This year, my list isn't quite as extensive. Continue reading “Gen Con 2013: The Stuff To Get Post” »...
