Origins Online Update: Now Demoing Independently

If you follow the board gaming scene at all, you probably know that Origins Online has been (rightly) canceled. You can read their statement here, and some great perspective on it from Eric Lang here. I hope Origins continues to recover from its mistakes with honor, and I hope it gives attention and momentum to the Black Lives Matter movement.
Deck of Wonders had been planning on doing a big push at Origins Online, with "Learn to Play with the Creator" events running via Tabletop Simulator every 2 hours the entire con. Even though the con isn't happening any more, we'd still love to give our community a chance to play Deck of Wonders. To that end, we've set up the events to run independently, open to anyone who's interested!

Just click here to sign up if you're interested in playing Deck of Wonders!

There's no fee for the events, though we'd suggest you donate if you can to the Black Lives Matter Global Network. You can also watch the below playthough video to get a preview of the TTS "booth" and see Deck of Wonders in action. Excited to share it with you!

Not-Overly-Kiddy Board Games to Play with Kids Under 10

I asked a couple days ago about games that were great to play with kids, but were also fun for adults and not overly saccharine in terms of the theme. The response was overwhelming! Well over 200 different games were recommended, some by upwards of 20 people.
Since Facebook comment threads are near-impossible to parse, I took the time to aggregate the responses into the graph below. Note that I tried to catch misspellings or any obvious joke answers (noted with an "lol"), but some may have gotten through. There were also so many games, that I only put those mentioned twice or more into the graph. Please note that these are all games people suggested, so being mentioned even once is admirable. You can also see the full list in the table below the graph. Enjoy, and let me know how playing these games with your kids goes!
Oh, and I'm launching my own game Deck of Wonders on Kickstarter in late August, and would really appreciate any support you could throw my way!

All About Deck of Wonders

The Deck of Wonders coming soon page is live on Kickstarter!!! This is a major milestone in the sprint to launching the Kickstarter campaign, and you can check out the Deck of Wonders coming soon page here. Condensing this game down to a single image and sentence was an agonizing process, so I wanted to share more detail about the game on this blog. Below is a more detailed (though still very high-level) description of Deck of Wonders that hopefully makes you even more excited than the coming soon page did! All of this is obviously work-in-progress, and that means your input (in the comments of this article or on any of my socials) can help shape Deck of Wonders into it's final form. Enjoy, and let me know what you think!

Play the Deck of Wonders Demo in TTS

Ahead of our Kickstarter launch on August 25th, I know people will be curious as to how Deck of Wonders actually plays. You can watch a demo playthrough or an explainer video (both posted below), or even read the rulebook, but there's really no substitute for jumping in and actually playing the game for yourself. That's why I'm excited to announce that the Deck of Wonders demo is now publicly available on Tabletop Simulator!!! Just follow this link to get the Deck of Wonders demo mod for Tabletop Simulator on Steam, and match wits against Cullin, the Spoiled Prince. If you're not familiar with how to get everything set up, you can use this guide. Good luck, and I hope this piques your interest to support the full game when it launches on Kickstarter August 25th!To hear me walk through the rules and mechanics, check out this video: To watch a full game playthrough of Deck of Wonders, check out this video:
