The coin is in! + Another dragon approaches? + And cats?!
about 1 month ago – Thu, Jul 13, 2017 at 12:50:42 AM

Hello dragons!

(Fill out your survey if you haven’t yet :) Click here if you lost the link.)

We have been working our tails off on the new models, and we have just received the master copy of the brand new Kickstarter Exclusive coin. And here it is!

 


The new design sports a dragon skull head and the reverse is a mix of the Rogue (shovel) and the Barbarian (Axe). From here, we are casting up over 3,000 and getting them finished in precious gold!

We also receive the Kickstarter exclusive pin!


The one of the left is the exclusive, and the right is the one we currently sell at conventions.

ANOTHER DRAGON? And a...crab?

Wait wait. There can be only one gold dragon, right? Well apparently not! Our friends over at Sensible Object just launched an expansion for their fabulous game Beasts of Balance. Think Jenga meets Pokemon. It is truly gorgeous.

 

And behold (if you didn't see him in the image above), they have included a dragon! MAGMAAARGH THE CANTANKEROUS!

 

Sensible Object enlisted the metal work of Lay Waste Games’ own Jon Ritter (Eleven Metal) to make a golden version of MAGMAAARGH! (so predictable)

Want to get MAGMAAARGH in golden glory?? Click here!

Oh, and if you back within the next 24 hours or so, you get a free crab! Crab crab crab crab.

 

Lots of fun to be had in the Beasts of Balance campaign!

CATS?!

Do you like cats? Yes? That answer is correct! Our friends at Twogether Studios just launch an adorable new game called Action Cats! It’s all about telling cat stories and it comes packed with cat pics completely crowd sourced from your submissions.

Want to submit your own cats and tell cat stories? Click here!

We love cats and will be submitting our own cat pictures soon. You should too!

 

Cats are basically modern day dragons. They rule their domain and casually lay on things they love without a care in the world.

That is all for now!

ROAR!!!!

2 months ago – Mon, Jun 12, 2017 at 08:57:59 PM

Hello dragons!

There are still 315 backers that need to complete their surveys. If you have not completed yours, please follow this link -> dragoonexpansion.backerkit.com <-

If you miss the deadline, your shipment may be delayed. We are doing this so the backers who get their surveys completed on time aren't delayed by those who don't.

BACKERKIT COMPLETION DEADLINE

July 7, 2017 at 11:59pm

We will be charging your credit cards on 7/8/17. If there is an issue, you will be alerted on that date.

STATUS UPDATE

We are about 75% complete on production for Dragoon Gold Edition metal pieces. Next up is the remaining 25%, plus the metal expansion pieces. At the same time, game production with AdMagic will be starting soon!

Rapid fire updates. Pins ordered. Plushies ordered. Wyverns ordered. Stickers art in progress. All is looking good!

WORLDBUILDERS GEEKS DOING GOOD

If you haven’t checked out the Geeks Doing Good Indiegogo campaign put out by Worldbuilders, you haven’t truly lived! As you know, Worldbuilders is the amazing charity started by Patrick Rothfuss (AKA The Bard-Barian) to simply make the world a better place. They deserve all the support in the world, so please check out the campaign.

 

The campaign has some amazing rewards that you can be the first to get, so act quick. Only 12 hours left!!! Also, one of the Lay Waste Games cofounders is making a metal version of Tak, and you can only get it on Indiegogo for now!

RISE OF TRIBES

Did you know that our production company AdMagic has a publishing division called Breaking Games? They make awesome games and recently launched a Kickstarter for potentially their most awesomeness-est game to date Rise of Tribes! 

 

Prehistoric people leading tribes, gaining resources, and ruling territories. Shame there are no dragons, but it might be too short of a game if there were! BTW, you can play Rise of Tribes at Origins!

ELEVEN METAL

Jon Ritter, one of the founding members of Lay Waste Games, has just kicked off Eleven Metal, a new company focused on making metal for tabletop games.

 

If you are a new designer about to launch a game, or a veteran looking to make your game heavy and shiny, drop Eleven Metal a line at hello@eleven.cool to talk shop. And metal. And dragons if you want :)

ORIGINS

We will be at Origins this week! Booth 335. Come play The Rogue and Barbarian Expansion, hang out, and be merry.
