Since the dawn of the digital age people have become more and more disconnected from each other. AE Games strives to bring groups of people closer together to, laugh, enjoy stories, and match wits in a social environment. Tabletop gaming used to be a staple of home entertainment. Unfortunately this tradition of gaming has really fallen off the map with the introduction of video games in the home. But as every industry finds out eventually the content becomes over streamlined and stale. This opens the door for new ideas or re-imagining of old ones. We at AE Games feel that this trend is going to swing back the other direction and people will rediscover what is at the heart of tabletop gaming...A sense of connection, interaction, and community. Our goal is to provide fun, creative, new concepts and game mechanics to keep the genre fresh and engaging. When the trend swings back to tabletop games we want to be here to see it and help fuel the evolution

So without further ado This weeks creative event selection for Anesthetic is "The Youngest Romanov" (we altered it slightly but the puntacular nature of the card was just to ridiculous to pass up!)

This is a long journey but we are making great progress and are getting primed for a big push into the final few weeks. The Westerlings are making waves and people are starting to take notice. Keep up the great work and we will get this project across the finish line. Good News Canada We have worked out further details about how we will be shipping in Canada. This means that we will be adding additional Canadian pledge levels that have a $7 shipping fee added into the pledge with no additional shipping charges. Due to this change we will be adding limited Canadian EB pledge levels as well so you don't lose your spot in the wagon Good News EU

Westerly Reboot Is Live! https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2010758051/westerly-reboot Well Pardners the day has finally arrived Westerly is back up on Kickstarter! We have gathered a ton of feedback and incorporated a lot of really great suggestions into the game to deliver exactly what you are looking for in a Westward Expansion themed adventure. We also spent the bulk of time working with new manufacturers to ensure that we secured the best quality for the best value and most importantly accurate production and delivery dates. This work also enabled us to significantly lower the pledge price levels and include some really fun expansions in the higher tier pledge. We focused on giving you more game more content and more fun in the box. We hope you will join us and the rest of the Westerlings on this Epic Western Journey and to bring back all the nostalgic memories surrounding this theme that a lot of us share. Please spread the word and don't hesitate to ask questions make comments and reach out to us about any of the details of the game.

Since pulling back the first Westerly campaign we have been really focused on manufacturing to drive the cost down and game play to include all the great feedback we received. We have also put a lot of time in updating the artwork to really dress up the overall look of all the game components. I wanted to give everyone a sneak peek some updated art so you can see what we have been working on. The river cards for the prototype were particularly rough in the first campaign. These were quick mock ups so we could get as much playtesting as possible. So it was one of the first things we wanted to fix between the first campaign and the reboot. Here's a sneak peak at the new card art for rivers.
We have been hard at work getting everything ready for the reboot. We have taken in all of your fantastic feedback and have spent a lot of time working the great ideas into the game. Your input is what will make this game as fantastic as we wanted it to be. One of the biggest changes to the campaign is that we have found a new supplier that will enable us to offer the game at a much lower cost then before and at a higher level of quality. We really did our homework on this and got a lot of great advice from amazing designers and publishers at Metatopia. With a special thanks to Stephen Buonocor from Stronghold Games who helped a ton getting us in touch with manufactures and printers. We have put a lot more of what people loved into the game and streamlined other parts to make it play smoother based on extensive independent play tests. It was really difficult for us to pull back the last campaign before it finished but we really wanted to get the cost down and be able to provide high quality ON TIME which seems to be rare these days. We're going to start posting the latest updates and some sneak peeks at completed art upgrades very soon. So it's time to start the Westerly buzz machine back up again. Our new launch date is the 28th so start spreading the word and keep an eye out for updates.
