Blood Rage Digital will be the next Flash Kickstarter campaign by CMON. Featuring Multiplayer and Solo options, the core game as well as many expansions, a customizable AI that can be used to introduce new players to the game or challenge the most strategic Vikings out there, and graphics that will put you in the middle of a war at the end of days, Blood Rage Digital is perfect for any fan of the Eric M. Lang original masterpiece. If that is not enough to get your Norse spirits fired up, this short campaign will also offer a few amazing promos, like new versions of the four exclusive Monsters only seen in the original Blood Rage Kickstarter, and the all-new Stag Clan!
Sharpen your axes, assemble your clan, and call on the services of some mythological beasts! Stay tuned for more information as the call to battle approaches!
The first thing we noticed on the Boards and Bits Traveler was the weight. The bag empty weighs over 5 lbs. A closer look reveals why, as the thought and design of this bag is truly amazing. The entire bag is reinforced with foam and rigid PVC board on all six sides. A rigid interior padded divider guarantees separation of boards and bits and prevents warping of boards. We found the inner compartment able to hold an amazing amount of games.
Airplanes - The bag is within guidelines for carry on luggage and easily fits extra travel items.
Conventions - Great storage protection to and from the gaming area.
Road Trips - Take your favorite games to family events and Holidays.
Game Nights - An easy solution to take multiple games in one bag to all your club events
The Board & Bits Traveler far exceeded my expectations. The size, construction and design make this the perfect bag for all your gaming travel. I have two events left this year with BGG-Con and PAX Unplugged in the next 30 days and this is my "go to" carry on for both. If you see me at either convention, you can see the bag first hand.
I encourage you to visit Spielgeek (https://spielgeek.com/boards-and-bits-traveler) and check out this bag further. Steve has done a great job and we look forward to his next project in gaming storage and travel!
