BloodRunes is now available on Amazon! Click below to preorder now. All orders will arrive in August!  Thank you so much for your support and love of games. 🙂

In the new board game, BloodRunes, you are a Rune Caster for your clan. Can you cast the right runes onto the shared board to bring good Fortune to your clan or will you make a wrong move and allow another clan to steal from you?

In this strategy pattern creation game, you’ll need to watch the spell books of others while setting up your runes to bring you the most Fortune and win! Be sure and protect yourself with wards or break other wards to steal from opponents. If the wild rune of Loki shines upon you, be careful, it could help others as well. 

BloodRunes was successfully funded on Kickstarter!  We raised a little over $6,800 to bring this project to life.  Thank you to everyone who backed the project!  You are all awesome and beautiful people!  


Really enjoyed the pattern building, tension in the choices, and paranoia-inducing player interaction.

Mortimus Walker

And the Secret of the White City



Morty is a One. He’s been laboring his entire life, but finally it’s his sixtieth birthday. Time for him to retire his old body and travel up through the clouds to the White City where he’ll begin his new life as a One-Two. He’ll be given a new body and anything he wants as reward for his service. But once Processing begins, things don’t go exactly as planned. Can Morty figure out the secret before he is lost in the System all over again?


A fascinating read, the author taps into our constant quest for perfection, for a better life, and for that perfect love, but as with most things, they won’t come so easily.
