about 2 months ago – Tue, May 05, 2020 at 10:09:40 AM

About 20 minutes ago the Kickstarter campaign for the Ulaya Chronicles: Cooperative Wargame launched. If you liked out white metal Rollecate miniature, you really must check this project out. It contains loads of white metal dinosaur minis from the very same metal caster. These miniatures are of a rare quality. Also, the game is really good. Check it out here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1559814207/ulaya-chronicles-cooperative-wargame

GeekAwards

For those of you on BoardGameGeek, the yearly Golden GeekAwards are probably a known phenomenon. Using a highly intelligent and fair system, the international board game community selects the game of the year in various categories. And this year, Rollecate is competing as well.

The first step of the GeekAwards is the nominations. Every member of BGG can nominate his or her favorite games. And you probably can see where this update is heading: I would like to ask you to consider nominating Rollecate, too. Nominations are open until tomorrow, though...

If you would like to nominate Rollecate, the process is easy. You go to boardgamegeek.com/geekawards/boardgame, find Rollecate in the list (hint: start typing the first few letters to jump to the right place in the list). Once you've clicked it, you can select the categories for which you'd like to nominate Rollecate. That's all. It is all saved automatically.

Nominating games for the GeekAwards is really simple

Thank you very much for considering. Stay safe!

Breaking! Rollecate can now be played online on Tabletopia
3 months ago – Sun, Apr 12, 2020 at 11:10:19 PM

A short update but one that we feel is really worth it. We just got word from Tabletopia that they decided to publish Rollecate in their catalog of online board games. That means that from now on you can play our lovely little train game with your friends, even if being physically present at the same table is not possible. We really liked playing Rollecate online and experienced the game in a totally new way. We hope you will enjoy it, too. Go ahead and try it, it's free. Stay safe! 

You can find Rollecate in the games catalog on Tabletopia (or just click the image)

BGG interview with author Michiel de Wit at SPIEL'19
7 months ago – Tue, Nov 26, 2019 at 11:38:13 PM

This is just a short update to share a cool video with you. At SPIEL'19, Rollecate author Michiel de Wit was interviewed by Rodney Smith for BoardGameGeek. The game overview video was just released and we wanted to share it with you.

This video is really quite a good introduction to the game. Rodney Smith, an experienced interviewer known for his videos for Watch it Played, talks with Michiel about the game, while playing it. And he actually has some interesting remarks as well...
