Saturday, July 13, 2019 is the Locally Crafted Games Fair at the Miniature Market Superstore in St. Louis, MO. But how did it all start? How can you start your own LCG Fair? What's the timeline like to make something like this happen? Let's talk about that.
A while back, we were working on a game about building realms that included stickers and cards and dice and the kitchen sink and... you get the idea. It died a terrible, merciful death during playtest. One of the things that came out of it, however was 12 nice pieces artwork Aaron worked up for the game.
Since that game's demise, we use these 12 pieces of artwork as the fill-ins for nearly all our playtests of new games. They just add a little flavor, and sometimes the story, to the games. Now, you can get this artwork.
Introducing AnSR Games Stock Art
In a new, sporadic, line of things we offer, we are now selling some of the artwork we use as stock art for you to enjoy and use to make your own games. Right now, we are offering the original 12 pieces of art (called Constructs) right now. Get one set of 3 or all 4 sets of 3 today, and add some art to your games!
Golf is an age old sport of people hitting things with sticks and walking in the woods looking for them. Now, you can play this great game, or at least a version of it, on your table with Diamond Drop Golf. Join the miners and jewelers of the Stubblehill Dwarves as they hit valuable gems across the land, trying to hit (and score) drops left on the field. The first player to score 9 points wins the game!
This is a great addition to our line of dexterity-based flicking and scoring games. Try it out and see if you can score the most drops in Diamond Drop Golf!
Some of the new favorite games to play (that are not our own) this year has been the great games by Games Workshop under the banner of Warhammer. We like them all, from Warhammer Underworlds, to the Age of Sigmar, to 40K and Kill Team. Of course, you don't enter that hobby without it changing you some. Here's what Warhammer has done to AnSR Games.
In 2009, we released our first RPG: -U- the Game of Stories. That started A'n'SR -entertainments (now AnSR Games). As we gear up to launch a line of U 3rd Edition (U3) RPGs, we are retiring the Classic -U- books. Celebrate a great game with a new 10 Years bundle and a look back.
Each year we set goals to accomplish for AnSR Games. Each year, we report on how we did before we release our next goals. We had a lot of plans for 2018. So... how did we do? Read on.
One of the things we did earlier this year was make ConEx RPG into a U 3rd edition (or U3) version of the game. That was the first U3 game, and now we are getting ready to release the second one: U3 Fantasy RPG.
U3 Fantasy RPG
So, what is U3 Fantasy? Quite simply, it is a generic fantasy version of the U3 system. It uses different PC Details than ConEx, uses d20s instead of six-sided dice, and adds in Story Features (like NPCs and Locations) instead of a group of Story Details. In a nutshell, it is a completely different experience from ConEx, but still wrapped in a portable, rules-lite game that anyone can play. Playtests have gone well, and the art is done. We are, honestly, just waiting for the right time to release it.
What Else is Coming Up?
We are working on doing an Angels RPG using the U3 RPG system and a new small, generic version of the RPG system called U3niversal. 2019 will be a really good year if you like light RPGs... or things that begin with U.
If you have ever wanted to play super-villains doing good deeds under duress, then welcome to U3 ConEx RPG. THis is a great game for 1-shots, a 10-12 game campaign, or to introduce some adult friends into the hobby of story-telling games.
3 Ways to Join the Inmates
ConEx is the first game powered by our new game engine U3, or U 3rd edition. This was formerly called Details and Dots. U3 is light, fun, easy to get, and offers a myriad of ways for us to make game experiences using some of the basic rule sets. Be on the lookout for more U3 games (we have more done and another on its way).
