Matt Faulisi, GAMA and Skybound

Skybound is no longer partnered with Druid City Games. They had partnered to make games like Tidal Blades, Sorcerer City, and Wonderland’s War. (See James Hudson & Druid City Games for updates on those.) So now Skybound is back to small, party-like games: Superfight, Trial by Trolley, etc.

New games coming this year!

Whine Night (available now)
Boo-ty Call – “Mysterium meets Skyfall” best for 17+ (available now)
No Context (from Mr. Lovenstein) – feels a little like Similo and a little like Joking Hazard – coming in May (pre-order here)
Trial by Trolley expansion “Travel by Trolley” – coming in June
Kiss the Goblin – indicate your (randomly selected) alignment by answering a prompt – coming in July
Pirate Tails – squirrels hiding nuts with set-based scoring
