Brief Update

Gnomecon was great. I think it has the potential of turning into something much bigger. You can read about it on our update at

Also we announced Ace Detective by Richard Launius.  The cover artwork is up on BGG. Give it a thumbs up if you like the artwork to get it to the front page

This week I plan to get the illustrations printed for the backers who had one made. I will then mail them to the artists for a hand signature. They digitally signed them as well, but I am sure hand signatures would be preferred. So you guys can look for those to be in the mail in the next 2-4 weeks.  If you have a preferences for how you want those printed, send me a private message.  Otherwise I will look around and pick the best method of printing.

Panda tells me they will make up the dice soon and send a mock up.  Those will be nice to see.

Best Regards,

      My interest is automatically piqued by anything noir!

      I just finished reading all the novels of Dashiell Hammett and then you post this?? He wrote for Black Mask. Needless to say, I am super crazy excited and really you should use me to play test. :)
