Gen Con and PAX West!

Gencon leaving update

Hello, Cardboard Fortress fans! We’re gearing up to head to Gen Con in just a few days! We’ll be demoing Lazer Ryderz in the Greater than Games demo room, which is room 145. Come by and check the game out! Level 99 Games will be at booth 2149, and they’ll have RESISTOR_ for sale, so don’t forget to stop by there if you need a demo!

Our friends at the Tabletop Co-op will also be demoing and selling their games at booth 2840. Check out Conduct and Stiches by Norwester Games, Shadow Over Westminster by Counter Clockwork Games, and Phoenix Covenant by Hikari Games.

Speaking of the Tabletop Co-op, we’ll be at PAX West with them this year! We’ll have more details soon, but right now we can tell you we’ll be in room 208 with some really amazing game developers!

That’s all for now! Come say hello at Gen Con this week and we might just have some fun surprises for anyone who wins a game of Lazer Ryderz!

Signing off,
-Nicole & Anthony

Heading to PAX East!

Hello, Cardboard Fortress fans! We will be at PAX East this weekend running the Unpub Booth! We’ll have four of our games with us – Kismet Dice, Kobolds!, Lazer Ryderz, and Turret Town. There will also be lots of other designers showing off their prototypes as well. Stop by, say hello, and play some games!

Speaking of Unpub, we had a great time at Unpub 6 two weeks ago! We showed off our four games, though the two that hit the table the most were Kobolds! and Lazer Ryderz.

First pre-Kickstarter RESISTOR_ review!

Hello, fans of Cardboard Fortress Games! We have been extremely busy lately trying to get everything ready for Kickstarter. We were hoping to launch in mid to late January, but we’ve been delayed by quite a few things. We’re still getting our business set up, and we’re trying to finalize our manufacturing costs, as well as finish creating the Kickstarter page itself. We’re still working as hard as we can and will keep you updated.

In preparation for Kickstarter, we sent out some review copies around the world, and our first review has come in. It’s from the Windsor Gaming Resource, written by Moe Tousignant! And I love the title: I don’t think I’m going to be able to resist RESISTOR_. Perfect!

We’ll be posting more updates soon. For now, here’s an image of all the prototype copies about to travel to distant places: Read more

New box design

Greetings, Cardboard Fortress Games fans! We’ve been hard at work over here getting our Kickstarter prepped and ready to go. We’ve also been getting review copies ready to go out to the press. Since the company we use to make our prototypes doesn’t make boxes, Anthony creates every single one by hand. He just made newer, smaller, sleeker boxes, and I took some pictures. Hit the jump to see them!

I hope you’re all doing well! Happy holidays from us here at CFG. We’re hoping to launch the Kickstarter very, very soon. Sign up for our mailing list on the right, Like us on Facebook, or Follow us on Twitter to be among the first to know!
