I was given a preview copy of Set A Watch for Review and I immediately opened it up and absorbed the rulebook. It brought me back to my D&D days where our DM would “make something happen” nearly any night that we forgot to set a watch as we camped. Many moments of arguing about whether or not we were wearing our armor and how far we can see, and unfortunately a handful of PC deaths resulted in these encounters. It was a lot of fun though, and I’m surprised the idea of a board game centered around that specific interaction in a fantasy setting hasn’t been seen more often in this industry. The theme of Set A Watch is incredibly unique and the execution of design and game mechanics in the box is awesome.

Here at Junk Spirit Games, we are very excited to announce our next boardgame: Battle of the Bards. Set in the world of Tessandor, players will race to capture audiences with their performance troupe during the annual Bardic competition in Noonshade Keep.
We’ve received our Pre-production copies of our latest game Tyler Sigman’s Crows and we shot a couple videos showing off what we got and what we as a team think about everything. At this part of the process, we are sent this copy to approve everything before the game goes into mass-production.

I am immediately drawn to this theme, no matter how good the resulting game is. Wasteland Express Delivery Service showed up on my radar and it was an instant purchase.
