I am on twitter you can follow me @mortispur if you like www.twitter.com/mortispur
I enjoy playing most board game genres. I am also lucky enough to have had some games I have designed published. Below you will find the latest news on these along with the current status of my new projects.
Twilight Squabble to be released by AEG April 2016Twilight Squabble
is a card game of bluffing to control the Balance of Power track through playing event cards without making your opponent so desperate that they unleash mutually assured destruction. But nobody wants to play a game that lasts 4 decades so this is an abridged version that takes 10 minutes. Less a twilight struggle more a twilight squabble
Coming from Alderac Entertainment Group
