Jellybean Games Announces Show & Tile Party Game

Jan 29, 2018

Today, Jellybean Games announced the launch of the Show & Tile Kickstarter, a new game from the designers of Seikatsu.

Show & Tile is a party game for 3-6 players, suitable for all ages! Each player takes two sets of tangram tiles, picks a word, and starts building. At the end of 90 seconds, put your tiles down and try to guess everyone’s words!

Can’t draw? No problem! Tangrams have been around for centuries, and can be used to construct anything you can imagine!

“Ever since I was 8 years old I’ve been fascinated by Tangrams,” said Isaac Shalev. “For someone who can’t draw, being able to create visually feels amazing. Show & Tile is a joyous game about sharing your creativity and I can’t wait to show it to you!”

“When Isaac first showed me this game, I kept coming back to play it again and again,” said publisher Peter C. Hayward. “I must have played it hundreds of times by now, but I’m still discovering new ways to convey ideas. Everyone I play with bring something different to the game!”

As with all Jellybean Games, the rules are straightforward and easy to learn. Players simultaneously create images out of tangrams, and then try to guess what everyone else has made. Extra points are awarded to players who tackle harder words – the fun comes from the challenge of trying to represent simple objects in a restricted way.

The game contains twelve double-sided sets of tangrams, a mat for each player, a sand timer, a scorepad, and a deck of more than three hundred words. Show & Tile is for 3-6 players aged 8+, and will launch on Kickstarter on the 30th of January, 2018

Cards Against IT available from Varonis

November 18th, 2015

Cards Against IT from Varonis is basically what you might expect it to be, a version of Cards Against Humanity for people in the Information Technology field.

Lets be clear: this is for IT people. Not because IT people are better looking and drive cooler cars than the general populace (which is true: most IT departments look like extras from the set of The Fast and Furious), but because unless you’re familar with things like the dark blackness that grips your soul when you discover that two NICs have the same MAC address on your network – you probably aren’t going to appreciate this at all.

Cards Against IT is available for free from Varonis Systems; as long as you give them your email address. They’ll then mail you a link to a print-and-play PDF, along with purchase instructions if you’d like a pre-printed version.

Some of the example white cards: “a 1000MW laser,” “Clippy,” and “A TOR Exit Node.” Confused? This edition probably isn’t for you.

Varonis also mentions that Cards Against IT is totally safe-for-work.
