The Crimson Hand is a fun addition and set of big bads to Fortune and Glory to those looking beyond Teutons and Tommy Guns. I like how they got their start in Touch of Evil and sort of malinger in the background of the Frogverse like Eternal Cartwright. I’m sure they will pop up in Shadows of Brimstone at some point. If they haven’t…I’ve lost track of everything poured into that Mine Cart.

Shadows of Brimstone WOOOOOOOOOOOOHOOOOOOO! I love you! I may have been one of the very last people to get my base shipment but what a glorious day that was! I don’t know who was more excited – me running into the house hefting an awkward box of FrogKisser poundage! (and yes I have been a FrogKisser since the sunset on that first Last Night on Earth) or The Boy with his dungeoncrawler kink love of Hero/Wahammer Quest.

What a ‘Unboxing Day’ that was!

Then came the hats…

Dear Shadows of Brimstone: I refuse to let you be eclipsed by Imperial Assault like some shadow of a star o’death. We’ve played a few Learner’s Game ironically using Descent miniatures.

There’s just so many hats to glue on. So many…..

I’m glad to see Shadows of Brimstone added. It’s an excellent game.

I received Fortune and Glory for Christmas so Rise of the Crimson Hand went straight to my wish list.

I just invented a game for my family’s grab-bag gift exchange. I based it off of Get Bit! but in reverse. Reindeer Games! proved pretty cool. The object was to be the lead reindeer (with dice as meeples/counters) in Santa’s team 6 times to grow all 6 points on your antlers. We used A through 7 of a suit for each player’s hand. It worked great! Merry Christmas, and a playful New Year!

Very fun idea here. Looking forward to the nice flood of games added.

Are you going the once per, or repeat lines mean the gift is given a second time?

78 games one way, 364 the other.

I’m pretty stoked either way. 🙂

If my guess based on pattern recognition is correct, I’m pretty excited where this is headed…
