New Stretch Goal Unlocked!

We’ve hit our next Kickstarter stretch goal and are excited to announce that Eric Simon and Julia Bond Ellingboe will be writing primers for people interested in playing SCUP in non-Western European settings!  We are thrilled to be working with both of them on additional materials for the book.

By popular demand, we have added a retailer tier for the US and Canada. If you are or know someone who works for a brick and mortar game store, we’ve got you covered!

Lastly, Todd has been hitting the podcast and blog circuit to talk about SCUP and game design in general.  Check out the interviews:

Keep an eye out for our next stretch goal – the announcement will happen tonight!

The Sword, the Crown and the Unspeakable Power

The Kickstarter for the Sword, the Crown and the Unspeakable Power has launched!  In just two days, we’ve not only funded the project, but are well on our way to unlocking the first three stretch goals.  Todd and Tom will be making some podcast appearances in the coming weeks to talk about the project and more.  To check out the Kickstarter, as well as preview materials from the game, visit the official project page on the Kickstarter site.

Greenlight at B-Fest!


Wheel Tree Press is delighted to be an official sponsor of B-Fest 2016!  Eric and Megan can’t wait to see everyone and enjoy 24 hours filled with the “finest” b-movies! We also can’t wait to give away some copies of Greenlight! You’ve got THREE chances to win:

1. We’ll have a copy of the game in the annual B-Fest raffle, so hold on to your ticket!

2. We’ll be challenging everyone at the festival to play a round of Greenlight! Pitch us your best idea for a reboot of a handful of movies pulled from the annuls of B-Fest history – the rules and instructions on how to enter will be posted at the official B-Fest table just outside the auditorium. Entries will be accepted through noon on Saturday, and we’ll announce the winner during the intro to our festival selection, Kansas City Bomber!

3. We’ll be releasing a special “Golden Ticket” paper plate flying saucer during the midnight showing of Plan 9 From Outer Space. If you find this special saucer, you can turn it in to Eric or Megan and claim your copy of Greenlight!

See you all on Friday!
