SHOOTERZ Hockey Card Game

SHOOTERZ Hockey Card Game is a fast-paced game for 2 players ages 8+. This cool game comes in a sturdy box and makes a great stocking-stuffer! Plays in only 30 minutes.

SHOOTERZ is currently live on Kickstarter. Here is the link: SHOOTERZ

General gameplay: Deal 5 cards to each person. On your turn, pick 1 card from the deck and discard 1. Try to collect your team jerseys and shoot as much as you can! Each time through the deck is one period. (3 periods total). Includes OT and Shootout rules. And don’t spend too much time in the sin-bin! (penalty box)!

shooterz-newbox-72dpi

You try to collect 3 positions to shoot for a goal. You need a centre, winger and a defenceman. There are 3 areas to shoot on the goalie, marked by cool target symbols. Are you going to shoot top right or top left or go five-hole (between the legs)?

SHOOTING: The shooter and goalie secretly pick their cards and then flip over – head to head. HE SHOOTS, HE SCORES! (And so does SHE!)

Video: HOWTOSHOOT

There are even cool red lights to mark your score! So back SHOOTERZ on Kickstarter or order it directly from our website. Either way you will score with the hockey fanatic in your life if you pick up this game! Enjoy! R.

p.s. my wife and I love playing SHOOTERZ! It’s not just for kids. 🙂

Get Adler! Deduction Card Game

What is your fave deduction game? I guess most people would say Clue? Clue really is the all time classic. But today there is a bunch of new deduction games.

clue1

Get Adler! is played with cards and is set in London, 1937 – in Trafalgar Square to be exact! Can you feel the fog rolling in as 7 pm approaches? Here is the description for the game:

London, 1937 — Intelligence has discovered that Top-Secret documents are missing. So, too, is MI6 Agent Adler! The only clue is an intercepted message: ‘Trafalgar at seven’. MI5 Agent Gold, Inspector Sharpe of Scotland Yard and Constable Townsend have been thrown this task: Find and eliminate Adler! They’ve got seven hours.

GETADLER_boxtop

The first 3 rounds is all about asking key questions and watching facial expressions and card play… trying to figure out who is MI6 Agent Adler (and possibly his accomplice, Kate Collins)! The second part of the game, after deducing the traitor, is to catch him! But it won’t be easy as he has escape vehicles and weapons…

So this Christmas/Holiday season please check out this ‘social’ deduction game and have a blast with your family and friends.

p.s. there’s even a FREE short story series based on the game, called Gold & Sharpe. Check out the website for ‘How to Play’ videos and more info: www.capergames.ca

The Old Ball Game

The Old Ball Game is live on Kickstarter: Link

What I love about this tabletop game for 2 is the pitching. We have 7 unique pitches and the deeper you go into the count, the more the confrontation between pitcher and batter changes from luck to knowledge – especially for the batter. It’s a real game of cat and mouse!

theoldballgame-cover-3

Everything is instant, also. There is no taking the result and checking charts of dice rolls. When that flaming, high and hard one hits the catcher’s mitt, and the batter swings – it is a Stee-rike!

obg-meeples

There is also timely hitting, fielding – errors, bunts, steals, and throwing out runners. We even have special rules for the pitcher getting tired and for a pinch hitter!

Please check out the Kickstarter – you won’t be disappointed. R.

Who likes to suffer?

Suffering is hard. We like to be the comforters, not the ones being comforted. If we are being comforted, then we are in some kind of pain. Emotional, physical – and to all different degrees.

We moved at the end of August and a few days later I felt a pain in my back while I was in the bathroom. It dropped me to my knees. It was instant. For the next 10 days or so I could mostly not walk – mostly crawling and lying in bed with a heat pad. In the night I would wake up screaming with back spasms (like cramps). My poor wife had to endure this… It was excruciating. I’m still not 100%, but made it to church yesterday. I have gone out twice in two weeks. Yesterday was a good day though, and a good night sleep.

I finally did go to Emergency and get an injection that helped a lot. It took away the inflammation.

We are not well off financially, and in fact closer to poverty. We live day by day and week by week. We trust God for our food, drink, business, etc. I am thankful for each game or book idea that I get, and am thankful for each sale and each backer on Kickstarter. It is a process with some light at the end of the tunnel.

I already have photophobia, since ’98, which is sensitivity to bright lights – which gives me migraines sometimes. I also have a heel pain problem, and sensitivities to odours and chemicals. Life is tough. Thankfully, God has given me a positive heart to overcome. I’m not giving up!

Last year I had 2 stents placed for my heart. But through it all, God has been faithful, and I feel and know that he is with me. I read the New Testament and it is filled with the comforting Holy Spirit and with great and precious promises. Faith moves mountains!

job

Sometimes I feel like Job and say Why Me?! Sometimes I get mad at God. But God has a plan and we need to trust him – not only in the good times. Job was blessed twice as much in the end, and got to see who his friends really were. If you have not read Job, please read it. It is a wonderful and encouraging true story.

“Casting all your care upon him, for he cares for you.”  1 Peter 5:7

Blessings in Christ, Randall
