Thanks to everyone for helping the Champion of Earth; Robots and Cyborgs Expansion Kickstarter event reach over 100% funding! There’s still time to help push this project into a Stretch Goal so stop on by and encourage anyone you think would enjoy this fun fast-paced card game to come check us out as well.
I’ve told you quite a bit about this game in the last few weeks but I can still hear you hemming and hawing. How do I play and is it really any fun? Well if you find yourself not quite certain if this game is for you then I challenge you to check out the Livestream that Ed put together. He uses the original core deck as well as the expansion cards to give you a real-time experience of what a session might be like. It’s definitely worth having a look!
Imagination will often carry us to worlds that never were. But without it we go nowhere.

Did you know that this year marks the 40th anniversary of the Voyager Golden Records? Like a bottle thrown out to sea, the records are a message that have been sent out into space. To commemorate this achievement Kickstarter has established their Project of Earth initiative in order to encourage contemporary artists to participate in a “showcase of human imagination”.
Shades of Vengeance will be joining this fantastic effort by creating Era: Balam. In this game we find out what might happen when a probe lands on an alien planet with disastrous results! Ed is releasing a few images to get you excited for this project and I hope you’ll check back here to see more. This game will be released quite soon!
That’s it for me, see you on Saturday for Consortium news!
