Show thread

This seems like a great excuse to introduce our team and what we do!

MEET THE TEAM

Laurie: Autistic & ADHD infused author, activist, and lead game designer for SDR games studio. Strives to make games that engage, entertain and educate while pushing for better practices and representation within the industry.

We are a studio with two self-published games, Pugs in Mugs (now available in our store) and Earth Rising (currently in production!).

We believe that games can change the world, and want to change industry practices towards a more sustainable future.

We hope to explore the world of TTRPGs in 2023 and will be adding a list of our current WIPs to our website soon!

We're always up for playing games, and love how welcoming the tabletop community is. Thanks for reading!

#FediPoll: because of the recent influx of new folks, I‘d like to repeat the "where are you located?" question and see if thing’s have changed. So: where are you?

Photos of The Spill board game 

First game of The Spill by Andy Kim from Smirk & Dagger with art from Kwanchai Moriya for couples games night tonight. 😃👍

Game Night 

Tonight is couples game night. We got Sagrada on the list and I’m also going to see if people want to play The Spill. I know, it’s not a popular setting, but it’s a co-operative game.

I am bad at capitalism.

So bad that, until 30th Nov, if you buy a copy of Swatch from my store I'll donate a second copy to a charity, library, or disadvantaged family!

If you don't want a game you can also buy a copy at 50% off and I'll donate it!
