I view this as leftists and SJWs realizing they can't win larger battles, so they're resorting to going for a much smaller, niche market.

The problem is, adults who play these games have VERY LITTLE going for them. Being able to meet people and interact through these games is all most of them have. They are backing rats into a corner here, and with the weirdness of the group overall, it could get ugly. Most of these people probably have high iq's, are SUPER tolerant of everyone, they will be confused by this attack.

What will they do? They will be redpilled and wake up. If they are already redpilled, they might just do something clever with those big brains, like I dunno, make their own games?

The SJWs are making the same mistake when they went after video games. Gamers are used to fighting and trying to win. People who read or watch things are just used to sitting back and absorbing content, and then maybe afterwards they will discuss it or get a little creative with it.

Gamers always want to win, it's the whole point of the hobby. And if you shit on them, they view it as a challenge that they want to win. They do not sit back and soak it all up and accept it.

People that have a hobby and not much else to do will defend it when marxists attack it with weaponized force. They couldn't leave our fucking video games alone, and they're still paying for the shitstorm no one could have ever predicted. You know why they're so worried about Nazis? They're turning your average libertarian into one with this endless shit. There's no end to their attacks in sight, so how else do you respond?

Making a new card game similar to MTG would be a smart move, but the creators may have to change the genre to avoid lawsuits.

In a way the smaller the battle the more it favors us. We are the ones who should hold the title Legion.

I once wanted to make my own risk boards and I realized that custom board game making is really cheap. There's a company that will do it all for you and they are way under pricing themselves. I'm talking it costs about the same to make your own game as it is to buy one from target, even for a one off.

I think we should start making board games. A game that teaches people actual economics would piss them off.

I don't follow board games - at all. The angle on this that I am interested in is how legally acquired content gets revoked from somebody who isn't doing anything illegal with it. You can argue TOS all day - that applies to "in product" behavior and conduct. Twitter spats and people hurling insults at each other at a convention could lead to a suspension of attendance (it would be within their rights), but your guns don't get confiscated for calling the manager at the local sporting goods store an asshole. This needs to be looked at with the same level of scrutiny that "OUR CHILDRENZ IS GAMBLING WITH THESE LOOTS BOXES" fiasco that dumbass EA walked into with Battlefront II.

It does pose a very important question of where the limitations are.

Imagine some poor kid streaming CS:GO getting killed and saying something that offends someone. Does this mean that the kids entire steam library could be stripped from him under some wide net of "guidelines"?

Does this mean that some YouTube theatric such as Sargon could have his Google play store purchases stolen from him for offending someone who viewed a YouTube video?

Apparently.

Yes. I'm not endorsing this guy's particular views, I'm fighting for free speech. Free speech is a security issue. If you're not allowed to criticize a certain group, given enough time that group or a hybrid group will become the master.

I would say that this post is a gross overstatement. Remember, it's the leftist outrage culture that continually pushes people away. They are our best redpill.

This is not indicative of the board game community as a whole. Most boardgamers are super laid back and, if not conservative, at least not SJW status. Boardgames is a hard hobby to facilitate due to needing people to physically gather together. If you spent you time offending everyone, you would never play any boardgames.

Wizards of the coast is a big player in the industry and they are swinging their dick around. Vote with your dollars.

Also, as a published boardgame designer, I would appreciate you continuing to buy board games.

We're not boycotting board games, we're boycotting Hasbro. Fuck Hasbro. If your games are made in America and they're consistent with American values, you're welcome to advertise them over in my subreddit /v/patriotbiz

Most of the industry is ridiculously left. Eric Lang and Rob Daviau each have Twitter accounts with low hanging SJW fruit.

I could name a bunch of other, smaller designers/publishers who just lose their minds about Trump being in office. It's sad.

Source: my name is in the rulebooks of around 100k games (units) sold this year.

Can we take down Cards Against Humanity? They actually want to try and buy land to prevent the Mexican High-Jump at the border.

I've begun some (very) preliminary work on my own game that uses some similar ideas as Magic and some old school D&D and EverQuest. Fuck it. Fuck WotC and their hiring of Anita Sarkeesian and Zoe Quinn to work on Avalon Hill games. Fuck 'em for ruining a game that introduced me to my closest friends in life.

I've played Magic since Fallen Empires, and watching this is fucking hilarious. I want to see WotC either crumble or beg for forgiveness. The game took a massive shit after New Phyrexia anyway.

We need to start making distributed media generation that people can use to build these in their own homes. It shouldn't be hard to find a printer that can print with automatic duplex on glossy cardstock and something else that can cleanly cut the cards out. At that point, it's just a matter of someone scanning or creating the media templates (either straight copies, or SJW-sanitized edits of media of the company that's failed us, or of original content). People can print them at home all they want.

One of my friend's jobs has precisely this equipment. He and his wife both work in graphic design, and that's part of the plan. Print at home would still be pretty cost prohibitive, and after going to a print shop one might as well buy a nice boxed edition. NetRunner, Legend of the Five Rings, Ascension, etc are all only about $40 retail in nice packaging with manuals and tokens and all. Print up the same quality of goods at a local print shop and you're likely looking at FAR more. I remember Kinkos quoting me $36 for ONE copy of a comic I was working on back in the day.

I think there's a good balance that can be struck between the money grubbing shit WotC pulls with Draft being one of their most heavily pushed formats (You HAVE to buy new packs each tournament) and Standard being right there with it (most recent ~two years of cards) Epic has a really cool model where you can buy the starter for something like $14, then it has rules for breaking it down into draft packs, playing Constructed, etc. It's really interesting, and it's like acid trip steroids M:tG.

Finding that balance will likely be hard. There's tons of people where part of the fun of M:tG is buying a sealed box and seeing what you get, then trading for what you want. I used to do that until I realized that I wanted less and less and less out of each set, so now I just spend $20-$30 on singles from small retailers, if that even, each set. How can one appeal to those players, while also appealing to people who want to buy something like Legend of the Five Rings where you pay $40 to get the base set?

If they keep trying to take our hobbies away people will have no reason not to pay attention to politics and then take action.

What they are doing is really going to bite themselves in the ass.
