Then last time we covered some of the Petition powers on cards and some basic strategies in the game. Today I’d like to take a look at the 5-card mini-expansion that is included with every pledge for the game. That’s right, we’re taking a deeper look at the Androids in the Anthelion line-up.

No other real restrictions, let's just see what you've got, and we will publish the winner. Having done a few design contests before, and being between contests here, we jumped at the opportunity to work with Suzanne and Gen Can't, and it's been a blast.

Introducing free shipping on Button Shy games!

Posted by Jason Tagmire on

In celebration of quitting my job and taking on a larger role at Button Shy (well, managing my already large role in a better way) I wanted to pass on something to all of you.
