A New Kickstarter from Carolina Game Tables

Our very own Clint and Jodi Black have a Kickstarter running right now for their absolutely gorgeous new Cabinet Game Table through their company Carolina Game Tables. If you’ve been lucky enough to have seen this new Cabinet Game Table up close and personal at a recent convention, you know that it is a beautiful and incredibly functional piece of handcrafted furniture.

The Cabinet Game Table has shelves and drawers designed to hold boardgame boxes, RPG books, and other accessories. And when you’re ready to game, simply attach the leaves and the legs and you’ve got a three-person, reversible table with one side featuring a fabric-lined play area and a one inch lip to keep your game pieces safely on the table.

And note that even if they don’t make their funding goal, provided they hit at least 500 shares on social media, every backer at the $2 “Stay Connected” level and above will receive a complimentary PDF copy of the Dinner and Dice cookbook (featuring recipes from a number of familiar names in the gaming industry) through DriveThruRPG.com!

Be sure to visit Carolina Game Tables on the webon Facebook, on Google Plus, on Twitter (@game_tables), and on Kickstarter!

Clint and Jodi Black Gaming Guests of Honor at ConCarolinas 2017

pantherwebsizeThis weekend, our very own Clint Black and Jodi Black are the Gaming Guests of Honor at ConCarolinas 2017! Clint and Jodi will be on-hand to talk about Savage Worlds, Conan: Rise of Monsters, and Carolina Game Tables!

Saturday night, don’t miss Clint’s Savage Worlds game, The Prophecy of the Omen of Hell`s Cheerleaders running from 8pm to Midnight:

“The Brotherhood of the Celestial Torch fights the forces of Hell wherever they appear, but are better known in the supernatural community as…Demon Hunters!

But all Demon Hunters have to start somewhere, and that place is Omega level for newbies (and has-beens). As a member of Chapter Omega Twelve, it’s time for your first mission. You know the other members of the Brotherhood believe in you as they are already taking bets on when you kill your first monster…at least that’s what you think the “Time Till Death” pool is about.

Welcome to the last job you’ll ever have. Welcome to the Demon Hunters!”

Join Us at MACE This Weekend!

Savage Worlds at a Convention Near YouWe all know how it goes. You’re sitting there, peacefully minding your own business, and the voices start up in the back of your head. “Join us,” they say, calmly and quietly—at first. Then they become a tad more insistent. In time, the constant “join us” chorus becomes simply too loud to ignore and incredibly hard to deny. So, really, why fight it?

Come see us this weekend at MACE in Charlotte, North Carolina. Clint Black will be there running games, Jodi Black will be there running the Beautiful Brains Books & Games booth, and Joel Kinstle will be there…well, we know how likely you are to catch him actually running

But there’s more than just us. Savage Saturday Night has nearly a dozen games already, and Clint will be running two brand new games that nobody has ever played before! And all of the MACE conventions are always a good time.

So, seriously. Join us.

Pinnacle Supports LORTNation and Girls in STEM

Ladies of the Round Table LORTCrate Charity RaffleLORTNation.com (for Ladies of the Round Table) is a self-styled group of “Geeks for Equality.” What makes them a little different is their focus on encouraging girls into STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) studies.

Even if you’re not particularly keen on equality, you should still care. Current projections suggest that we’ll run out of qualified folks who can finish the development of your favorite video games if we don’t expand the role of women in STEM studies! (Sure, that technical gap also applies to people who can build bridges and develop vaccines, but we all know what really matters, right?)

Oh, and you can win a lot of cool stuff, too. Their LORTCrate Raffle will give a box of over $250 worth of gaming goodness—including materials from Pinnacle—to one lucky fan on November 14. You can enter for as little as $5, and all proceeds go directly to the Ladies of the Round Table STEM Education Scholarship Fund. It’s a great deal for a great cause, and we’re happy to support it.

And speaking of women in gaming, they’ve also got an interview with our own Jodi Black about her role in gaming and The Last Parsec Kickstarter project available right now. I never realized we had a role model right here on staff, so be sure to check it out today!
