I just wanted to personally thank everyone who came out to play BBF with Bill and I at Gen Con. You were all incredibly supportive and enthusiastic. Bill and I had a great time
I also wanted to thank those who stopped us during Gen Con as we walked about and told us how much they like DwD and are looking forward to our future projects. Motivation like that is invaluable.»Read more
Bill and I can be found Thursday night at the Sagamore Ballroom, area 1-2 We are scheduled for 6:00-9:00 pm. Please meet us there at a little before nine, and we will find someplace to play.
As GenCon draws near, I reflect on the year we've had here at DwD Studios since GenCon 2013. That's sort of like a fiscal year for gamers :-)

- AnCon (as a exhibitors instead of gamers!)
- Con on the Cob (as gamers)»Read more

--It is really impressive how much stuff Bill gets done. He has a huge amount of energy to put into all the different projects we have going on. Let me give you a little rundown on the division of labor here at DwD.»Read more

We discuss this as we work on new d00lite offerings such as FrontierSpace and Malevolent Domain... is it doing a disservice to each genre to adhere to a specific mechanical foundation?»Read more
