Last weekend I attended Viking Con in Copenhagen. Last time I visited was 2016 where I ran Death of Rapacus, a game of wizards duelling out personal issues. This time I brought my family and I presented a new game, Gaming weekend in Tranås, Sweden.

Viking Con is a game convention in Copenhagen. I will be at Viking Con 42 and I will be offering a game. Please step forward if you would like to run the game.

I will be playing my story game Mars to Stay again this Thursday at Tekniska in Stockholm. Mars to Stay is a game about pioneers who risk themselves to do what no one has done before. Would you give up Earth for good?
AnyDice is a useful tool for designing and analysing different dice mechanics. In this post I show you how to use AnyDice to analyse two popular dice mechanics and how I used AnyDice to design the dice mechanic of one of my games.

I created the story game Montsegur 1244 for Fastaval 2008. I felt it was a story that needed to be told and a game that I wanted to play.
A story game is a game that creates stories. Using cues and instructions it helps a group of players create and tell stories around a common theme.
