  1. Epic were recently advertising roles, working on that side of Fortnite, so I guess they're not done with it yet.
  2. Yep, it's happened loads. I've worked on 17 released games and, by my count, 8 9 of those are now unable to be bought in any form. Mostly, they're pre-App Store mobile games (Brew, J2ME etc.) but one was only last year: a server-based multiplayer game that didn't have enough users to justify continuing. Stuff like that is even worse, from an archive point of view, as there's no way at all to access it. If you had the old mobile files, you could technically run those.
  3. Moving Out is great fun, and has the ability to totally customise the difficulty level. Perfect for playing with someone young and\or less experienced with games.
  4. I was really surprised that there wasn't any footage of the build after February last year. All the other builds this series had at least some stuff shot during the gaps between lockdowns, and even had Kevin doing a Zoom call with one couple. Given that the last footage before that was her throwing a massive strop, about Kevin's comments, I reckon she got the hump and wouldn't let them back until it was done and dusted. I really wasn't that keen on the end result, even if I'm not as much of a purist as Kevin. I know there was a lot of rotten stuff that needed replacing,
  5. No, I bought my copy from them and it was $12 shipping. Not cheap, but not horrendous as they've got a UK fulfilment centre. The worst part was that they just sat on the order for a week, before sending it out; it came quickly after that though.
  6. One copy here: https://firestormcards.co.uk/STM900 Edit: Or, buy it direct from the publisher: https://stonemaier-games.myshopify.com/products/wingspan
  7. @jonnyalpha That sounds good, for Roll Through The Ages. 6kg!? Yikes! Okay, maybe not then.
  8. I'd be interested in Roll through the ages and Hive, if @Rev doesn't go for it. Also Mechs vs Minions, if you change your mind about postage. I'm in Hampshire, so collection's not really an option.
  9. @Cosmic_Guru I'll definitely have On Mars, if I'm next in line for that one?
  10. And, in case you need a third backup for all of those, count me in.
  11. Wait, how did I not know about this site? I use Gameslore all the time! Thank you!
  12. Don't get on the wrong side of The Bullet:
  13. VivaJava: The Coffee Game: The Dice Game. An over-complicated title for a fairly simple, fun game. Locally anyway: it was a bit more complex than I thought it would be over Zoom, hence the need for a second camera. Before that, we played SteamRollers, which worked very well. Most roll and write games play well remotely. Our friends don't have a printer, so we've laminated some scoring sheets and posted them to them.
  14. Our weekly Zoom gaming session with friends moved to a two-camera setup last night: The phone captured a wide of the main playing area and cards that tracked what each player was doing, while the ipad had a close up view of ability cards and dice rolls. Worked really well! In recent sessions I've already added an LED panel to the basic lamp so, by the end of all this, I'm expecting to be using a full TV Outside Broadcast truck.
  15. Generally, I'd say that a roll and write would be perfect for you, but I guess it depends if he has any motor control impairment? They're good too as, generally, all information you need is visible at all times, so there's not much need to keep a lot of things in memory. Some of them can be very good solo too. They can be a bit hard to come by right now, as everyone's playing them over Zoom. Some good entry level ones are: Noch Mal!, Kokoro and Qwixx. Getting more advanced, you have Welcome to..., Corinth and Castles of Burgundy the dice game. If you can get hold of som
