Ismark Kolyanovich is a confidant man. The world was hung heavy on his strong shoulders since childhood, and many things have left him in shadows of fate and grandeur of others that he felt he had not deserved. But earning your own grandeur is a luxury to the free. And despite his stature and good looks, he is most certainly not free. “I have faith Ireena.” he says, breaking the silence in the still and ravaged wooden room. The woman known as Ireena, deep red haired and dark skinned, stands opposing him as the sole other occupant of their once lavish quarters. “When was the last time we’ve had someone new?” Dark eyes scowl at him in reply as she perches herself on the edge of the stripped countertop. He shakes his head, feeling the weight of the world in his tense neck. “I hope you’ll listen when they come back.” he says after what feels like hours deadlocked in stillness. “And if they don’t?” It’’s a sharp, immediate reply. Her still face and dead words fill the room as he tries to think of an answer. He doesn’t. And the day goes on, until it becomes night.

Hier, la Rose des Vents dévoilait la couverture de son prochain jeu : Into The Woods. Nous avons eu la chance de le playtester en exclusivité et en avant première ! Into The Woods est un jeu de rôle de Morgane Reynier pour deux joueurs. Le premier interprète un esprit, le second un promeneur qui aime à se perdre dans les bois. Entre chaque joueur, un ruban fait office de système. Mais, si les joueurs ont le moindre contact physique, c'est la partie elle-même qui touche à sa fin...

Avec Flavie, nous playtestons Into The Woods et, en dépit de difficultés liées à un vocabulaire initiatique parfois obscur, nous découvrons la richesse évocatrice d'un jeu de rôle au gameplay asymétrique. Nous vivons une rencontre passionnante, poétique et symbolique qui rappelle d'illustres références cinématographiques comme La Belle et la Bête ou La Leçon de Piano. De la foret à la vie réelle, l'errance du promeneur et de l'esprit se poursuit au-delà même du quatrième mur...
Bonne semaine à tous ! Portez-vous bien et, surtout, jouez bien !

DESCRIPTION: It's been a busy and chaotic month or so, between new digs, new gigs, local conventions, and localized pathogens. But we're making up for that now! This episode Erin and Ryan discuss the Granite Game Summit and review Sherlock Holmes Consulting Detective: Jack the Ripper & West End Adventures!




  • April 2017 saw the first multi-day attempt of the Granite Game Summit in Nashua, NH, and we were front and center for attending! Yes, after a couple one-day events in 2016, the troupe at G2S decided to try their hand at a 3-day con. We recap our thoughts and experiences from the inaugural event.

REVIEW - (30:22):

  • The original Sherlock Holmes Consulting Detective first burst onto the gaming scene in 1981 and has circulated in some form ever since. Yet an updated reprint in the last couple years gave rise to renewed interest in the classic game by a whole new generation of gamers. This recent standalone expansion (Jack the Ripper & West End Adventures) is a continuation of that trend. It contains six updated cases from the original West End Adventures expansion, as well as four brand new cases in the form of the Jack the Ripper series, which unlike any past cases, are all tied together and have a cap on how many actions you can take.
  • In this narrative-driven game of mystery solving, each playthrough consists of a single case upon which players must collectively solve. To do this, everyone takes turns moving about Victorian London gathering story clues, interviewing witnesses, and inspecting crime scenes, all in the hopes of figuring out the whodunnit before Sherlock does (at least in theory). Prepare to be taken all over London as you chase leads and deal with dead ends, each of which is represented by storybook elements read aloud that correspond to the people and places you decide to visit. The combined effect is a co-op based literary puzzle that will appeal to those who love solving mysteries or those who appreciate a well-executed thematic setting (though not necessarily both groups at the same time). With an abundance of flavor and plenty to explore, Consulting Detective provides ten story-centric sleuthing experiences definitely worth checking out, even if playthroughs can take longer than advertised, can ony be played once, and can be a little clunky on exposition in some instances. Well, so long as you just give up on trying to best Sherlock and enjoy the world it presents to you at your own pace.

(Note: if you don't see pictures below, you can view them via the RSS feed or clicking this link.)

Everything you need to run a Consulting Detective scenario Running around London looking for clues! Thanks to the handy directory, we found Emmet Ogden lives at 83 EC (East Central district) Scouring East London to catch Jack the Ripper 10 Scenarios equals a many, many hours of worthwhile gaming
