Someone on the Internet once told us that making stick figure comics is easy as hell, and that we were ugly and stupid.

They were right on all counts. So, after crying for a few hours, we created the Random Comic Generator (and free iPhone app!), which since its inception in 2014 has entertained millions with its computer-generated comedy.

After a few weeks of playing with the Random Comic Generator, we started to wonder if its hundreds of random panels might lend themselves to a card game, where you compete against your friends to finish a comic with a funny punchline. So we printed out all of the RCG panels and started playing with them.

Well, it worked. It worked really, really well (with a few tweaks).

And now we think our game, Joking Hazard, is ready to bring to the world. With your help, of course.

The game itself includes a deck of 250 unique panel cards (we did the math, and that’s 15.4 million combinations of comics) most of which are so messed up we can’t show them on Kickstarter without censoring them. And we’re against censorship, so instead we’ll censor the word “deck†itself.

For $25 you will get a single d*ck. Brand new and wrapped in plastic.

For $35, we'll also add in a 50 card booster pack, called "Blast From The Past", for your d*ck. It includes all your favorite jokes, especially ones about World War 2.

Feel like pledging $60? Congrats, you are now the proud owner of two d*cks and two copies of the Blast From The Past booster pack! Hoard them for yourself, or share a d*ck with a friend. That’s Christmas taken care of!

Want to spend more than $60? Check out the list of reward tiers to the right. We’ll do all kinds of things with your d*ck. Not only that, but if the community helps us unlock the achievements below, everyone's d*ck will become bigger.

Risks and challenges

On our first Kickstarter (The Cyanide & Happiness Show Season 1) the biggest issue we had was over-merchandising the rewards, which created a lot of headache and delays in getting the items physically produced. Making thousands of t-shirts is a nightmare we would not wish upon our worst enemy. So this time we're keeping it simple, and giving people exactly what they're supporting: the game itself.

*Note: Extra shipping charges may apply to certain countries.

I'd not heard of this game before. It's got a bit of a CAH vibe going on. Sounds like it would be fun to play with the right group, but I could see the gameplay getting a bit samey after a while.

This is my hesitation.

The biggest weakness to CAH is turns where you only play one card, which leads to "best shock value wins".  After you've seen all the cards, this dissipates and is no longer fun.

 

The biggest strength of CAH is turns where you play and combine multiple cards without shock value, in ways where the final effect is greater than the individual cards used.  To be perfectly honest these are the only turns I enjoy and I always horde card combinations for this specific purpose.

 

With this game, I would definitely prefer to play it with a large hand size and players picking all three panels from their hand.  Let the players get their creative juices flowing and come up with their own crazy combinations.  Otherwise I see this game falling into the same trap.

      I know there are a few folks that do Bolt Action and similar 28mm wargaming (@buglips), so I thought I'd bounce this out there.

      Story
      Railroads are an important means to transport troops, equipment, ammunition and all other kinds of supply to the front. Especially in a country as vast as the Soviet Union with it's endless steppes, only few reliable roads and no major rivers running in the direction of the German advance during Operation Barbarossa in World War II. 
      With this set of detailed buildings and rolling stock in 1/56 scale for 28mm figures you get the opportunity to recreate the crucial fighting around the Soviet railroad system.
      The kits focus on the major pieces of rolling stock available to the Soviet defenders: box cars, gondola cars and flat cars. And the mighty ALCo RSD-1 Diesel Engine which was made available under the US Lend-Lease Act.
      Also included is a typical rural train station with optional additional platforms for all who want to depict a Soviet - or captured German - supply depot, where heavy equipment like tanks and guns are being unloaded.
      And for all of you looking for an armored train - don't worry! We have you covered.
        Talking about railroad tracks:
      We did not see the need to reinvent the wheel, so all kits are designed to be used with
      4Ground Railroad Tracks (available as add-ons to the Kickstarter) or O Gauge Model Railroad Tracks The kits include optional parts enabling you to choose your favorite system while assembling. Going this route has allowed us to concentrate on designing and producing the rolling stock only, which has the advantage of an earlier fulfillment date for the Kickstarter.
      All models are highly detailed on the outside and inside. The interiors are easily accessible, as roofs are removable. In addition, all doors are moveable, which means you can open or close them during gameplay.

      A Viking Girl sculpted by Bobby Jackson. She was a lot of fun to paint since she had a lot of canvas for freehand work. She is also my first serious effort at NMM, so that's a well I plan to return to.
       
      I came to paint her when I asked my friends which model needed to get some love next. I presented a wizard, a ranger, and an armored lady fighter. One chimes in that she'd like to see the fighter (she being a practitioner of HEMA). Her boyfriend mentions something about boob armor. I said, no, she's got pretty normal armor. You want to see something egregious? THIS is egregious. My HEMA friend immediately says, "I'd like to change my vote." So here we are.
       
      Here's the WIP thread for her. Here's my next piece.

      This has sod all to do with miniatures, but I would be surprised if there were not people who might want one of these pins, for literally any reason at all.
      I'll let the campaign speak for itself, as I usually do; it is pins. There are, as the title implies, representations for most of the common faiths, in a literal rainbow of ... well, Pride rainbows.

      "You take your game seriously. Now it's time for a serious screen.
      In October of 2018, Dog Might released the first fully sculpted GM Screen, the Valhalla Screen. Since then, we have released over 30 more designs, including officially licensed screens for: Pathfinder, Call of Cthulhu, and Vampire: The Masquerade. We have also designed screens for you favorite shows, such as Relics and Rarities and the Critical Role stream of Undeadwood. Over the last year and a half, our Valhalla Screens have proven to be our most sought after product. "
       
      ... Would it surprise anybody here to know I want one? 
      If I can't have one, at least I can spread the word. ;p
