Update   Leave a comment

I know it’s all gone a bit quiet with us lately, but there is something in the works! Catalogue 8 (which died with my hard drive) is being resurrected. What’s delaying it is the freebie game: all the development work on it was lost, so I’m starting from scratch. It’s a two-part freebie this time: an Argor FRPG mini-scenario followed by a wargame. The scenario outcome affects the wargame (but you CAN skip the RPG element if that’s not your thing!).

I won’t tempt fate by stating publication date… sometime this spring, let’s say!

Argor FRPG sale   Leave a comment

Our fantasy RPG Argor isn’t specifically aimed at kids so doesn’t qualify for DrivethruRPG’s Teach Your Kids To Game Week sale. However, with it’s easy-to-learn game mechanics and Argor Lite option, it’s very suitable for use with younger gamers. So we’re running our very own sale from now through to 22nd November: during that period you can get Argor FRPG at a whopping 30% discount! Just click on the image below to go straight to the sale page.

Hey! What happened to ‘The Battle of Dorking’ and ‘Last Stand at Surbiton’?   Leave a comment

Good question! A while back I got an email from the nice people at Tiny Battle Publishing, a new company just launching its first titles. They had heard of 1871: The Battle of Dorking and were interested in buying the rights to it. I must admit I was torn. On the one hand, I’m very proud of Dorking: it’s true to the story that inspired it and I still love playing it. It is easily my best selling wargame and it’s been great to have it as part of the Draken Games portfolio. On the other hand, sales have dwindled over the years and it would be great to see a nicely produced physical version of the game, finished with the sort of production values I’ll just never be able to manage.

So after some deliberation I am bidding a fond farewell to the game. I am also retiring the free expansion 1871: Last Stand at Surbiton.

The new game will be called Dorking 1875: The German Conquest of Britain. Why the name change? Well, firstly to make it clear it’s a different version of the game. I’ve been working with the TBP people to update the rules. No changes to the game mechanics, but the format is quite different. And… ahem… the date? Well it turned out that while the battle is usually associated with the date of Chesney’s original story (1871), if you check the dates he gives in that story, it must actually be set in 1875. Oops. Well, at least that is rectified now!

I’ll post an update when TBP launch the re-vamped Dorking. Meanwhile, why not check out their website?
