  • Rob Daviau Leaves Hasbro; Starts IronWall Games

    From Game Salute and others reporting on press release that I can't locate independantly:

    After 14 years with Hasbro, Rob Daviau (Risk Legacy, Heroscape, Risk 2210AD) is leaving to form his own company, IronWall games. The decision came after Hasbro relocated Daviau’s job 100 miles to Providence last fall. After a year of working and commuting and otherwise living like a wandering monster, Daviau decided to set off on his own. His last day at Hasbro will be September 14t.h

    “Big change, realllly big change,” said Daviau. “When I started at Hasbro, the Monica Lewinsky scandal was going on. So it’s been about a third of my life and most of my adult life. Looking forward to doing my own thing.”

    IronWall Games will provide design, development, and rules consulting for game companies, both in the mass market and hobby genres. It will also produce original games, mostly within the hobby market.

    IronWall Games starts October 1st.

    About the Game

    Living together in a small house is not easy... When the pressure is too high, it's time for a big rumble in the house! Try to keep your secret character inside the house as long as possible.

    Rumble in the House is a very simple game of bluffing and guessing.

    Characters are placed in the house during setup. Each player gets two secret character tokens. Players may in turn move or eliminate ont of the characters in the house. The player that kept one of his secret characters in play for the longest time shall win the round. During the game, other player's actions provide clues about their identity, or intended false leads. Each player tries to guess which are the other player's characters in order to eliminate them, while keeping their own safe.

    The simple mechanics and short play time make Rumble in the House a family game for 3 to 6 players aged 8 years and older.

    The humoristic art from Kwanchai Moriya perfectly suits this minimalistic party-game.

    Rumble in the House is a small format box (11x11x3Cm) and will be available in a multilingual edition including rules in English, French, Spanish, Dutch and german. MSRP is 15€.

    You can download the rules from our website :

  • Second Printing of Fantasy Flight's Mansions of Madness Corrects Errors - Set of Corrected Cards Promised in First Expansion

    The first printing of Fantasy Flight's Mansions of Madness, unfortunately contained several game spoiling errors and misprints in it's rules and cards. Fantasy Flight's updated, as of 6/3/2011,  Errata and FAQs now states that these errors have been corrected in the second printing, which can be recognized by the MAR11 printed in it's barcode. Unfortunately the second printing has some errors of it's own.

    The updated errata also confirms, as many gamers predicted, that a corrected set of cards will be included in an expansion, stating:

    While some errata has been revised in the second printing of the game, we will include a corrected set of all known misprinted cards in the first (non-print on demand) Mansions of Madness expansion.

    The full Errata and FAQs can be found here.
