Cursed By Dice Episode Three Now Up

(I’m just going to copy/paste from the Cursed By Dice site, head on over for some behind the scenes stuff)

Episode three is live!  This is the first episode to come out after our initial launch and it is a good one.  Shadow River’s zombie plague is still a problem.  Billie Ron Hubbard is still annoying.  Everyone still ignores their fate points.  It’s business as usual here on Cursed By Dice.

Come check out Episode 3 below: here:

Sky Dungeon: A Steampunk Airship Dungeon Crawler

Sometimes my wife wonders how I spend my time.  I often respond, “poorly”.

For your amusement, here is Sky Dungeon a Steampunk Dungeon Crawler.  Click here for the pdf rules and print stuff.

Here’s the intro text:

Welcome, Captain! You have responded to our plea in the nick of time.  Our land is under constant threat from Sky Pirates who feel they are above the law (as well as the hills).  Our towns will not last much longer if those bandits and allowed to soar.  You’re here to stop that though, right?  Of course you are.  I see you have a mighty fine airship out there.  That’ll do nice.  Thank you, Captain.  Get up there and knock out some bandits.

Steampunk Tabletop Mini-Golf

It had to be done.  It had to be done.

Mini-golf is the best version of the game.  Windmills, volcano endings, the little putters that would feel so out of place on a real course; everything mini-golf is amazing.  So here’s a mini-mini-golf for the table top made steampunky.

Behold the steampunk tabletop mini-golf putter.  Practical? Nope.  Steampunk! Swing the nut from it’s perch and slam it into the ball (I am having a very difficult time writing this) and send the ball flying. Continue reading

A Table Game for the Four Year Old

In the grand search for something to keep the oldest entertained, we built a board game today. 

The goal was simple; fun, solo if needed, and quick. The result was a disc flicking game of taking the player token and smashing it into opposing disc to send them off the board. 

We themed it with beloved superheroes saving the city from an army of bad guys. It was really fun. Continue reading

Steampunk Dice Tower


What to do with an unused cedar plank, extra trinkets and a love of dice towers? Make a steampunk dice tower! 

I thought at first the dice tower could just be a box with some gears on it. Practical is not the steampunk way though. So the dice tower became a platform with a lever to release the dice and roll below. 


Super fun. 

The limitless possibilities of a simple cedar plank. We had a few leftover from the big play set addition just a begging to be used. The board probably wanted to become a fence post, or a garden plank, maybe used to smoke some salmon. Nope. It is now helping make dice rolling en masse just slightly easier?  Not really.  But there is a bunch of extra noise!

 Project details are limited. Cut cedar, screw it together, connect the rotating top platform to one side, add funky stuff. Keys and gears and impracticality add to the steampunk goodness. 
Now to make an awesome steampunk RPG for dice rolling wonder.
