The first echelon of BAD NEIGHBORSes has been steadily arriving at homes across the country, and some of you are already enjoying the sweet taste of fresh-squeezed neighbor-juice. Not coincidentally, today I shipped out the first batch of custom cards for the most eager of Angerburgernicans: those who took me up on the offer before they could have possibly known why it was cool. If you made a request and delivered all your whatnots in a timely fashion, your card might be winging its way toward your mansion or subterranean grotto right now. For everyone else, the first batch is visible down yonder (SPOILERS, possibly).
But first! INTERFRAKKINGNATIONAL TABLETOP DAY is coming to your town, the 30th of this month. It’s a day for boardgamers (aka tabletop gamers) to share their love with everybody. I mean, they’re pretty willing to share their love anyway, but this is an excuse for them to be forward about it.
Tabletop Day is being organized by Will Wheaton and Geek& Sundry. Check in at your local game shop: they’re probably participating. (Hint: don’t mention Monopoly, unless you’re trolling for a dice-and-miniatures-sack-beating. “Games have come a long way since Monopoly” is the party line and it’s true. That’s good news if you’re not into endless, totally luck-based, rage-inducing, table-flipping aneurysm-bait.)
So, you should probably clear your schedule for that day, so you can go out and play BAD NEIGHBORS and other wonderful games.
If you are in the greater OLY/LACEY/South Sound area, you can even come to it does it will be OUR OFFICIAL REAL-LIFE BAD NEIGHBORS GAME RELEASE PARTY. MARCH 30th. More details soon.
UPDATE: THIS IS OFFICIALLY A THING. We’ll be starting at 11am March 30th and be there until 4 pm (depending on how things go). The shop is on Pacific Avenue, directly south of Fred Meyers. Stop by for some hot neighbor-killing action. Or just stop by and say hi.
(Either way, you should visit their store, because Gabi and Eric are super-nice and kind and nothing at all like the guy on the Simpsons. The shop is gigantic, yet friendly and packed to the rafters with goodness. If I had known about this place before, I would have been broke long before now.)
GAME UPDATE: as of about 2 o’clock yesterday any decks you order will have 1 of 5 RARE family members. I bumped ROXY (an original family member) into this pool to make room and because this is the 4th time I’ve had to edit her card. (For some reason, the GAMECRAFTER hates her, and the last printing made her monochrome, like a pageant mom). The other 4 rares were selected by a combination of paybacks and favoritism. If you want to get on that train, it’s not too late.
UPDATE : We received the new sets with the rare cards and they look great. Even Roxy. W00t!
Likewise, if you want a custom card (as shown above), the offer still stands: email me [mort(at)badneighbors(dot)org] proof of purchase (preferably a pic of you playing the game), a reference image, your preferred game alias (such as “raccoonboy”), and address.
FACEBOOK UPDATE: For those of you who like that sort of thing, BAD NEIGHBORS is now on facebook: https://www.facebook.com/badneighborsgame
Dang! Enough with all the reading. Go put your neighbors in the cold cold ground, like I taught ya.
