Binwin Bronzebottom is many things:
- The D&D characters I've played in podcasts and live on stage for over 10 years.
- A pop culture icon and brand that supports several "catchphrases" and lines of merchandise.
- The star of his own weekly comic strip called Binwin's Minions.
- And probably what I'm best known for, despite the fact that I've been a cartoonist for the last 20 years.
But now Binwin Bronzebottom has performed his greatest achievement. He's made it into a video game. Idle Champions of the Forgotten Realms
to be exact. An exciting D&D idle-strategy game from the Canadian Wizards over at Codename Entertainment. In …
Usually, if I'm playing a table top game, it's a pen and paper RPG. I don't know what it is about board games, they can't typically keep my attention, but when my longtime friend Stephan Frost asked me to test a game he'd designed called BRUTALITY I knew it'd be good. Frost is a creative director at Nexon, and worked at Blizzard, Amazon, and Carbine, so we've known him for the video games he's made. He was telling me that he'd play-tested this new board game with designer friends for about a year, and that it was like playing a quick deathmatch video game but at the table. He came to visit me in Seattle where I treated him to a round …
Tavis here, from Binwin's Minions. I wanted to give you a quick update and some explination for this weeks Binwin's Minions, a tribute.
Tuesday Morning I took our dog Robot to the ER. She’d been having trouble peeing, and was just generally uncomfortable. After a couple of hours one problem domino’d into another and into another. We had to make the decision to put her down. Megan and I stayed with her to the end. She was a part of our family for nearly 12 years (this Saturday would’ve been her 12th birthday). Robot was a great dog. Always smiling, and fiercely loyal. Her favorite toys were a ratty old talking Raccoon, and a Crinkly …
It’s a brand new board gamey PAX Unplugged in the delightfully chilly Philly. Which calls for a brand new board gamey hoodie to keep us warm!
The Deconstructed Dice Hoodie
comes in the minimalist white (available online now
) and in the CON EXCLUSIVE NEON! We went high-end with this one. It’s a navy unisex light-weight hoodie with french terry interior and antique nickel zipper and drawcord tips and eyelets. Also, thumbholes!
We’ve got super limited quantities of the con exclusive neon, so be sure to swing by Booth 524 early!
Speaking of limited quantities, we’ve only got a few of the officially licensed Garfield Pinny Arca…
We're in the last 24 hrs of the Binwin's Minions V1 Kickstarter and it's been a doozy. We're fully funded as of late last night but if you haven't already become a Backer now is a good time because we've already unlocked the first Stretch Goal: a Binwin Bronzebottom D&D Adventure Module. For the last 24 hrs we've got two new Stretch Goals to keep the momentum going: Signed Bookplates, and Beta Testing the new Binwin's Minions rpg-lite tabletop game!
We've also got some new Reward Tiers and add-ons. Lots of folks were sad they couldn't make it to PAX West so we added the Garfield Game Wizard pinny as an add-on. You can also check …
