Carolina Game Table Kickstarter


Awesome new kickstarter for gaming, puzzles and hobbies. A table with a hidden gaming area. I know this family conventions, they been booth neighbors a few time. I wish them luck with this new project.

You might know us already—Clint and Jodi Black—from our work with Savage Worlds and Pinnacle Entertainment Group. Clint and his family have made furniture for three generations in Hickory, NC, furniture capital of the world. We think we’re uniquely qualified to bring you a classic looking table suitable for everyday dining and Game Night.

This table looks so cool.

There is a wide edge for leaning on (or placing a character sheet, game tokens, or puzzle pieces) with most of the play area in easy reach. The 32″ x 50″ play area is 3 inches deep and covered in burgundy cloth.

The project was funded in just five hours! Congratulations to Carolina Game Table!


Bricks of the Mouse Guard Kickstarter


Crazy Bricks is about to wrap up another Kickstarter project. This time they are doing the Mouse Guard. Mouse Guard is a graphic novel series by David Petersen. I have not read the series but the artwork is beautiful.

 In Mouse Guard, mice struggle to live safely and prosper among all of the world’s harsh conditions and predators. Thus the Mouse Guard was formed. They are not simply soldiers that fight off intruders; rather, they are guides for common mice looking to journey without confrontation from one hidden mouse village to another.

 

The sets will include various mouse heads and character accessories. The head colors are tan, grey, reddish-brown, and dark brown. The accessories are two styles of flagons, a cool axe, a lantern on a staff, and a sword. I really like the looks of these flagons. I want to get a bunch of these for my minifigs when they are released next year.

Each accessories set comes in your choice of one of three colors – Gun-Metal Grey, Brown,  or Gold

Stretch Goals

They already have added some pre stretch goal items. Each set will include a bonus black mouse head and a stove pipe hat. They hit the first stretch goal bonus, an extra flagon. The next goal in another bonus flagon. AT $25,000 they add a random item, And if they hit $30,000 they plan for add ons.

1. We’ve teamed up with the artists at BrickArms, CitizenBrick and Cape Madness to produce fully-realized custom Mouse Guard Minifigures of your favorite Mouse Guard Heroes!  These will include pad-printed custom torsos, limited-edition colored weapons, Hero length capes, 10th Anniversary Mouse Guard packaging and more!

2. 1 x 8 Mouse Guard Badge Bricks so you can show your love of the Guard!

3. You can ADD ON additional Crates of the Matriarch!

They have a target date of March 2015 to have the Mouse Guard bricks ready for the tenth anniversary of the Mouse Guard Series. Alice Finch and Washington state based Lego User Group, ARCHLUG plan to build a World of Mouse Guard MOC at Seattle’s Emerald City Comic Con. Alice Finch built Hogwarts Castle out of 400,000 LEGO bricks. She displayed at BrickCon 2012.

The Kickstarter ends late Sunday night. It has already been funded so they stretching for the extra goals. They are less tan 2,000 away from a second bonus tankard in every set.

I supported Crazy Brick’s previous kickstarter event for the Munchkin Bricks. I hope to have those bricks soon. I’ve been looking forward to them for a while.

New Page: What’s in the Bag?


I have a new page that lists some of the apps, tricks, and websites that help you determine what is hiding in that blind bag. The link is at the top of this blog. I made a page rather than a post so it could be easier to find. If you have more tips or sites please post them on the page.

Excerpt

What’s in the Bag.

The blind bags are cool but they can be frustrating finding the figure you want. You may want just one figure from a set. You might want to collect all the figures. or you may want multiples of the same figure for army building. But how can you know what is in the bag? These Blind bags guides can help.

The best I’ve found for LEGO is the Touch Guide in the My Mini’s app. The app coats $1.99 so less than a mini-fig and its well worth it. no only does it tell you what to feel for it shows you what mini’s you might confuse with it.


Indiana Jones and the Temple Run


Professor of Archeology, expert on the occult, and how does one say it… obtainer of rare antiquities.

LEGO Indiana Jones and Temple run

Indiana Jones and the Temple Run.

There is a board game based on Temple Run app. The app was originally .99 but Imangi Studios made it free. You can purchase upgrades in-game. Is the game any good? How would an app translate into an old school board game? Well I’ll put it this way the board game was originally $19.99. I found it on clearance for $1 at Wal-mart.

There are now versions based on Brave, Oz, and a Temple Run 2.

This image is offered as an 8×10 print on E-BAY. That auction has ended but check my online store at Ollure.com or my main e-bay page to see if another gets listed.

LEGO CUUSOO announces summer review.


LEGO CUUSOO has announced the results of their current review. They were reviewing four projects. the results are.

EVE Online Ships – Rifter the LEGO Review Board has decided that this project does not meet the requirements for the business case

The Modular Western Town would conflict with the upcoming Lone Ranger line so it will not be made.

The Legend of Zelda will not be made due to the cost of making news molds for the mini-figs in the games.

But one set did make the cut and passed the review. One of the best film trilogies will be made into LEGO form.

Back to the Future DeLorean Time Machine
by m.togami* and Sakuretsu
After analyzing the supporters of the Back to the Future project, we learned that this product has a broad, worldwide appeal. The model presented in this project is built very closely to the LEGO Group’s design standards and has therefore provided a strong base to design the final product. It has a high play value and it fits well with supporters’ price expectations.

For these reasons, the Back to the Future project has passed the LEGO Review, and has been selected for production as the next LEGO CUUSOO set. The final product, pricing, and release dates are still being determined.

I’m really excited about Back to the Future theme. I would have like also had Zelda approved cause it is so popular. New western stuff would be cool as well, I guess they are banking on Lone Ranger to fill that void in the LEGO line.
