Games Quarterly #5 Online Now

The latest issue of Games Quarterly Magazine is available for downloading now. Print copies should show in mailboxes and in better game stores everywhere soon. If you dig through it, you should be able to find an article I wrote on Peter Adkison’s new company (Hidden City Games) and its new game (Clout Fantasy). It’s a collectible game, but instead of playing cards or moving miniatures, you throw poker chips. It should debut at Gen Con Indy (which is run by Peter’s other company, which he started after leaving the first company he founded: Wizards of the Coast).

  1. Is it me or does “Clout Fantasy” look deceptively like Pogs? 🙂 Man, I wish I could come back to the States and hit Gen Con Indy.

    Matt, you don’t have any plans on going to Gen Con Europes, the UK edition do you? They are having it in the UK and Spain this year, I believe…

  3. Yeah, they look like pogs, but they’re made out of a heavy composite plastic that has much better heft to it. They feel like Vegas-style poker chips, although they’re not quite the quality of the ones you find in the best casinos. The color images are stickers applied to the chips, which are color coded to the various factions.

    As for travel, I’d love to make it over to Europe, but I don’t think it will happen this year. Of course, if some convention were to invite me, that might change. If it does, I’ll let you know for sure.
