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.

We’ll be in Boston in just 24 hours! See you soon!

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!

Board Game Geek page and new art!

Hello, everyone! We’ve been quiet lately because we’ve been working hard getting the Kickstarter prepared, setting up our company, working on new art, and trying to learn all the ins and outs of contacting reviewers. It’s been a lot of fun but a ton of work!

We’ve set up a Board Game Geek page for RESISTOR_, so please go and become a fan, subscribe, and if you’ve played the game, please rate it! That would be really wonderful.

We also received our new prototype with Anthony’s new artwork! Hit the jump to check it out. Read more

Post-Boston FIG Interview with Guys Games and Beer

The awesome guys at Guys Games and Beer interviewed us at Boston FIG (and gave us some tasty beer!), but their sound wasn’t good, so they asked us to do another interview over Skype! We had a blast with them discussing RESISTOR_, how we came up with the name of our company, and, of course, what we plan to do with those infamous hats. Oh, and how Larry is planning on cheating at the game. I am really looking forward to seeing how he’s going to do that!

Check out the video and/or audio at their website. They have some awesome pictures of RESISTOR_ on their Facebook page, too. Check that out, and their other Boston FIG pics!
