RPG Encounter Mat Kickstarter from Battlemats

May 27th, 2017

Battlemats are pleased to announce the launch of the RPG Encounter Mat Kickstarter campaign.

We are expanding our existing RPG Encounter Mat range with 20 designs available as physical vinyl mats and digital files, or as a combination of both.

We aim to have the ideal backdrop for any encounter in any roleplay game!

Our mats are all available in 2’x2’, and over half have a 3’x2’ option. Our images are available with or without, a 1” grid overlaid on the image.

Our digital files are suitable for home printing (on multiple A4 sheets then assemble) and/or for virtual table top.

At Battlemats we work in PVC vinyl for several reasons. It is a highly durable material, 500gsm is very heavy duty (so much heavier than a PVC tablecloth for example) and it will not tear. It is heavy enough to lie comfortably flat under its own weight – no curling edges here! –and we recommend our mats are stored rolled in the cardboard tube provided.

You can also draw on our PVC mats using a chalk pen or non-permanent wet marker, and they will wipe clean. This means you can personalise your experience and customise your mat for as many different scenarios as you can think of!

We are pretty excited about this Kickstarter launch, and we are celebrating by designing even more designs as stretch goals!

Revenge of the Blank now Live On Kickstarter

Revenge of the Blank box

May 20th, 2017

Despicable Games LLC announces it’s first despicable game, “Revenge of the Blank

Revenge of the Blank is a simple party game. One person in this game called “The Judge” reads a prompt. Everyone else then writes a response on their own whiteboard. After all the responses have been submitted the Judge picks their favorite. They then give the card to the player who wrote the winning response. The player to the left of the Judge becomes the new Judge and the game continues like this until all the cards dealt out at the start of the game have been awarded. The player with the most points at the end of the game is the winner.

With three questions on each card, you should never have to ask a lame question. Because of the whiteboards you don’t have predefined responses that don’t fit the question like in many other games. In-jokes, friends, enemies or even events that have just happened can become answers. The same answers can be used over and over leading to some very funny running jokes. You can even draw an answer. Which in the end leads to a ton of laughs, many groans, few gasps and possible some interesting discussions.

Some examples of prompts from the game:

______ is the worst thing to hear the paramedics say on the way to the hospital.

And the award for ______, goes to ______.

What is something you can say at a zoo, but not about your partner?

I suffer from (Pick 3 Letters), which stands for ______.

A fortune teller once told me I would live a life full of ______.

I have just rededicated my life to the study of ______.

Little known fact: ______.

If (Name Someone) had a theme song, it would be ______.

Create a shopping list of 2 or more items, that when purchased together, might confuse or alarm the cashier.

Revenge of the Blank is a game for 3-8 players, but can handle more with a second copy or by forming teams. Game length is adjustable, by increasing or decreasing the amount of cards dealt to each player at the start of the game. The average game plays in about 45 minutes. Suggested retail price for the base game is $25 and $10 for each 50 card expansion.
