Walk the Plank: Tin Edition is live on Kickstarter!

It's back and better than before! The bumbling pirates of fan-favorite Walk the Plank have returned to Kickstarter with Walk the Plank: Tin Edition! We've updated the artwork and packed the game into a tin the same size as Captain Carcass.  

 

 

The Cap'n is making all but two of the the laziest pirates on the ship walk the plank! Program your pirates for three moves each turn in the hopes that you'll be able to drive your opponents' pirates off the plank into the briny deep before they do the same to you.  

This edition brings wonderful new artwork, fun stretch goals, and all new content ONLY available during the campaign in the Deluxe Tin Edition with the Walk the Plank Promo Pack! Five new cards for every player!  

 

 

The Deluxe edition will also be in a larger tin to hold all that extra craziness, too.  

 

So what are you waiting for?! To walk the plank yourself? Head on over and grab a copy of Walk the Plank: Tin Edition or the Deluxe Edition that'll ONLY be available during the campaign!

HIDE-ing from Sharks

2140, Atlantic Ocean.  

Well THAT could have gone better. There you were, enjoying the luxury of a cruise liner while figuring out how to steal the contents of the ship's safe for The Agency, you were made by an astute security guard and had to jump overboard to not get caught (or worse).  

Fortunately, you won't even have to swim to shore thanks to the inflatable microraft you have in your coat. It's a good thing, too, these waters look to be *really* shark-infested.  

While there are decidedly fewer sharks, Mayday Games' latest project, the hidden identity deduction dice game HIDE (Hidden Identity Dice Espionage), actually captures how missions more typically go.  

 

You recall how the game plays to keep yourself awake as you start rowing to shore:  

 

Monsters or Sharks?

Unbelievable. All that swimming and just BARELY keeping ahead of the sharks (and your friends) has paid off. You've reached an island, but not just any island; it's the Island of Nowhere Atoll, home to the famous scare faires.  

You've only heard tales passed about the crew of various ships you've worked. Stories of frightening (but harmless) monsters, cunning monster tamers, and the scare faires themselves, where monster trainers try to scare the most people with their captured and raised monsters.  

As you make your way up the beach, you remember the source of the tales in particular: this is where Mayday's next project, the set-collecting & resource gathering Isle of Monsters, takes place.  

 

While you finish drying yourself off at a convenient towel stand next to a dunk tank at the scare faire, you overhear how to play from the locals:  

 

A Twist of Fate in Shark-Infested Waters

Boy, the sharks are acting strangely today. You'd swear you've heard singing several times as you've tried to avoid getting bitten by the ravenous beasts...  

There it is again! "Who will buy..." The sharks are friggin' singing! Hm. Maybe it has to do with that new ragamuffin that fell into the water the other day. Every time he's avoided getting eaten by the sharks, you've inexplicably heard him say, "Please sir, I'd like some more!" Is this kid crazy?!

Wait. ...that's Oliver Twist! He must have fallen in while on his way to help Mayday with their newest project, Twist of Fate; a microgame inspired by Oliver himself.

That would explain all the cards and finding sanctuary the kid's been going on about. How did it go again?

New Swimmer, Jumping The Shark, Magic in the Water

New Swimmer

Ahoy there, shark fans! We've got a few announcements for ya. First off, you may not have noticed, but there's a new swimmer with ya tryin' to stay ahead of that dang shark. Why, it's Scott! He's the new lubber Mayday brought on to set up, run, and maintain Kickstarter campaigns as they run and are fulfilled. Don't worry, though; he's not the best swimmer.

Jumping The Shark

Get Bit certainly hasn't, as Mayday recently printed 3000 of both regular and deluxe Get Bit, and is already 40% through it in just a month! That's a lot of panicked swimming. What *will be* jumping the shark, though, is Get Bit's next expansion; aptly titled, Jump The Shark. They're hopin' to have more details in the next few months, so stay tuned!

Magic In The Water

As you manage to keep ahead of the shark and everyone else, you notice the water's getting all sparkly... That's probably from Mayday's latest Kickstarter campaign, Voodoo, the Magical Party Game of Curses!

In Voodoo, players roll dice in order to cast silly curses on each other such as requiring to keep your elbows touching and things like that. You can check out the video for it here:
