New Board Game Bits

It’s been a crazy few weeks since Gen Con as I scramble to catch up with deadlines and help Ann get the kids ready for school. During that time, I’ve written the first issue of an ongoing comic (details coming soon), polished off the first draft of the second Dust novel, and helped out with the Marvel tabletop RPG development team. Next I’m sprinting away on Carpathia, but before I put my nose to the virtual grindstone again, I wanted to mention another cool project I’m involved in.

My friend Dan Verssen makes some of the best military games out there. I played a lot of his Modern Naval Battles in college, and it was a real pleasure to get to know him in person as I joined the tabletop games industry. He’s tinkering with a new board game called Global Domination, and he asked me to help him with the color text for the game’s cards. It’s been a ball working with him, and I’m looking forward to playing the game myself.
