Get Deducing & Scheming With Blood On The Clocktower


Ryan gets a chance to talk about Blood On The Clocktower, a fantastic game for between five and twenty (yes, twenty) players which is focused around the idea of deduction, reasoning, bargaining and a little bit of murder too.

Unlike other games of its type this game has a lot of in-depth rules and twists in interesting ways, even when your dead. You can find out about the game and how it plays with Ryan in the video below.

Floodgate Games Talk Sagrada Expansion & Bosk


Floodgate Games got a chance to delve into a discussion with Ryan about their newest expansion for Sagrada as well as Bosk which is a game of majestic trees. If Sagrada is anything to go by, Bosk is also going to be a lot of fun.

Crafting windows from dice might not sound like an interesting concept at first but it’s a brilliant puzzle to try and solve and it always looks beautiful at the end too.

Fantastic, once again I remain massively disapointed that I can never attend anything even close to this cool here in Australia

Id like to see a look at some of the indie game sections, so the one/two man bands showing their games and get them some wider coverage on this platform.

Be great to have you guys do a bit of boosting the companies that don’t get any press really – help us to uncover some gems please, preferably before sunday so i can go buy any lol.

Just catching up on the content from yesterday I missed when at work.

I remember when tabletop games were a niche for ‘social misfits’. Today, there is this massive event over 3 days, with global franchises like Alien having licensed games being announced.

It never ceases to amaze me how this hobby has grown. I started out buying white dwarf, the one that covered dungeons and dragons andfeatured hand drawn black and white covers, and now we get all this.

Thanks to everyone involved for the hard work that brought all this coverage.

CoG Member

I’d like to have been able to come and hunt for those obscure gaming aids and terrain that makes your games stand out.

CoG Member

Another day with some awesome content. Thanks guys! >-<
