Perplext | Casual Game Revolution

Perplext

A reimagining of Long Shot, this roll-and-write game has players racing, betting, buying horses, and (of course) visiting the concession stand.

Help game designer extraordinaire, Roland Wright, create the perfect dice game by rolling dice. Roll, write, and erase, to make sure your game wins the most awards.

Perplext has a new line of roll and write games set for release in 2018, Z-Man has announced Junggle, and Blue Orange Games will be releasing Photosynthesis in August.

There’s a lot of backstabbing and betrayal afoot this month on Kickstarter, from poisonings and social deduction games to potential love gone wrong. But to lighten the mood there are also cute cats and adorable Cthulhus (yes, apparently Cthulhu can be adorable).

Can a game get any smaller than a pack of gum? These four pocket-sized games are the next installment in the Pack O Game series and offer a wide range of genres and gameplay.

Pack O Game is a series of tiny microgames that have raised over $30,000 on Kickstarter. These games appear to be ideal for casual gamers who are looking for portability. We reached out to the designer and publisher, Chris Handy, to learn more about these little gems.
