Game Night

Did you see Avengers End Game yet? I went on opening day and made it all the way through without a bathroom break! But seriously, the movie was amazing, and I’m looking forward to seeing it again (at home when I can press pause).

My next novel is called After We Fall. The story takes place between Books 1 and 2 of the Rogue Spark series. It’s about what happened to Reed and others at Woodlawn Youth Improvement Center after Ida left. The cover is ready, and I’m excited to share it with you.

What do you think?

Game Night
Last weekend, I invited friends over to play a game called Dark Tower. It came out in 1981 but was discontinued. I have fond memories of my family sitting around our kitchen table playing it when I was a kid. The game did not disappoint!

Four players own a kingdom each and must travel to other kingdoms to find brass, silver, and gold keys. Then you trek to the Dark Tower where you have to decipher the order of the keys to enter. 

Along the journey, there are battles with brigands and other dangers such as plague or just getting lost. Each player manages a supply of soldiers, gold, and food. The game was groundbreaking at the time because it contained a tall plastic tower with a computer interface. 

Guess what? Dark Tower is coming back in 2020! Restoration Games is updating the game and bringing it back. I’m so excited:-)

  1. Wow, Cameron! I owned Dark Tower and played twice a week for a solid two years time w/my sister and Bro-in-Law back in the day! (Yeah, I guess I am an old fart, thinking about it now!) In fact, after talking about the game at my Bro-in-Laws funeral, my nephew (his son) remembered us playing it and asked if I still had it. I dug it up and gave it to him about 2 months ago!
    I loved that game, the best part being after you finally stormed the tower and entered the right Key Order, the Royal Battle music would play and the brigands would storm down at you and your troops! Depending on how the game determined, you could either get slaughtered until you backed out and re-prepared, getting new men, to go at it again; or beat them back and listen to the glorious music (the tinny generated victory “song” coming over the Towers speaker was as striking as an old Alice Cooper concert!)
    Thanks for stirring up my old memories. I may just go and get the new version when it comes out. If it’s even close to as good as the original one was, it would be a blast!
