Briefest Write-Ups in history!!

Hello all! It has been a hectic and fun late summer and fall… with me galavanting off to France for a month to visit my very good friend Chris (one of the owners of Oka Luda Games) and road tripping throughout his wonderful country! And… we added a side trip to Essen Spiel – which was AWESOME as always! It was so good to be back after my two year hiatus (while waiting for international travel to stabilize)…. pfffft. ANywho… I just HAVE to get a ton of new stuff onto the site… and so… the next few write ups will be amongst my shortest ever. 😅 Sorry for the lack of poetic ramblings and video links and such!

It’s just that SO many backlogged campaigns fulfilled in an incredibly short time… and well… like I said… traveling fun was a bit out of control!! 😬😂🎉

Bundle details

This Upstart bundle includes the Deluxe Edition of Oak! OK… that’s not actually a bundle… hehe. But, you get the idea!  Anyway, this is, as always, precisely what backers of the original Kickstarter campaign received with any and all stretch goals included. Any add-ons or other goodies that aren’t mentioned here are not included with this one. Of course, I don’t think there was anything else… hehe… but still… just so there’s no confusion. 😉❤️

I was fortunate enough to meet up with the Game Brewer team when I was at Essen Spiel last month (I’m writing this in November)… and it was SO good to just sit back and catch up on the past couple of years! I LOVE their team!! Everyone is awesome… the games are awesome… ohhhh, I’m catching the vapors… 😂❤️ Anywho, after the Spiel, I got chance to play Oak and I LOVED it! Did I win? No…. no I didn’t. Was it still awesome? YES! Yes it was! Wim really did a FANTASTIC job on the design with this one… really, really well done! Tons of fun… easy to teach… and all sorts of mechanics goodness at every turn. 🥰🎉 And let’s be honest… you all KNOW how I feel about worker placement… 🥰☝️

As always, please reach out with any questions!! I’m almost always available unless I’m driving, flying, or asleep! 😂😅🚗✈️💤 And OK… sometimes I might be available while flying… 😉

Kickstarter Campaign Link – to check and see all the juicy exclusives!

I do want to at least post a link to the original Gamefound campaign… in case you haven’t heard of this one somehow. 😉 The link can be found HERE.

Again… sooo sorry, everyone! I’ll get back in the swing at some point… argh! 🏴‍☠️

Oak DeluxeOak Deluxe Edition is here!!!  You’re welcome… 😉😊❤️ …and, Game Brewer… they are just SO DARN WONDERFUL!

In the center of a vast but secret forest stands a mighty Oak – a majestic tree that was already a sapling when the world was young. It is even said that from its wood, the gods crafted the first humans and animals.

Druidic Orders from far and wide flock together around its roots to bathe in its glory. Arch-Druids sanctify sacred places and erect rune-etched monoliths, while Bards tell fantastical tales to recruit a greater following. Ovates read the omens to gain a glimpse of the things to come, while Talon-Masters use force to defend their Order’s beliefs. In Oak you are the leader of a Druidic Order, each different from another. You will try to establish that your Order deserves to be chosen by the Oak to learn its secrets.

Your Order will start out small and insignificant, but if you choose your actions wisely and use your Druids efficiently, you will see them grow in power and stature. You will gain the friendship and help of otherworldly creatures like the mischievous Boggart, the mighty Carw Gwyn, and the magical Pixies. You will learn powerful spells of the forest and uncover mighty artifacts. You might even risk upsetting the natural balance by creating new sacred places to house your growing flock of Druids.

Will you be able to prove to the Oak that your Order is worthy? Will you be able to unlock the secrets of the Ancients?
