Perhaps you’ve never heard of Jason Glover. He’s the owner and designer and artist and publisher for Grey Gnome Games.

I ran into him by chance when prior to making my roll-and-write game. He made an amazing game called Doom Realm and a sequel, so I became a fan. Well, he just released a solo adventure-as-space-dungeon-crawl called Desolate.

It’s fucking rad looking. Solid rules. I am NOT a solo gamer. I devote most of my alone time to Xbox and guitar, so for me to endorse something and be jazzed about something that is a one player game is transcendent, IMO.

Takes forever to get it. Gamecrafter isn’t great at fulfillment, but after around a week and a half it shipped.

I love the look and the multi/use design of the cards is downright Clowdusian. Really like this one.

Got this and played it last night.

Really fun and simple little dice chucker with some rough ass decisions, some push your luck, some resource management.

I definitely like it and really like the aesthetic.

I don't mean to ruin anyone's fun, but it's been brought to my attention that Jason Glover has said some hateful, racist things on Facebook. Anyone looking into his games may want to be aware of this.

I don't have proof. A good friend of mine saw screenshots from someone else (it was a private facebook group where the discussion took place). He mentioned it yesterday and I did a double-take as I remembered this thread. I guess we could argue about whether posting information that a friend saw and I didn't is the right thing to do. I could be convinced to remove my post but I believe it to be true.

Maybe someone who's talked to him before (Pete?) could ask him his thoughts on POC to verify. I get the impression he wouldn't hold back in a private setting.

I couldn’t care less about his views on any subject in all of the world provided he’s not proselytizing people to buy into whatever he’s selling.

Shit, look at my written works and tell me that SEAL Team Flix is not in trouble...I MADE PRISON RAPE JOKES!

The real question is “what was said and how does it affect the product”? I got tempbanned from BGG back during the “righteous indignation” phase of my time there for calling out a guy who made a slavery game and had a Confed flag as a badge on his profile. I got that flag banned. That guy is one whose beliefs entered the product.

If Reiner Knizia was a NAMBLA member, would Tigris and Euphrates be a bad game? I’m not saying we excuse shitty behavior but if a guy says nasty shit privately that may not be a thing I’d view as a barrier to buy a game he created.
