Rainy Day Wallets

It was a wonderful day to sew some wallets. The rain was dumping down as I listened to podcasts and sewed 8 of these upcycled wallets. Each one is unique, since they are made from scraps of different jeans, but the basic combo here is selvage denim, red/brown leather, and a red/yellow/white plaid upholstery fabric. These wallets are designed to look better with age. They are super slim and long lasting. Pick one up on DoctorPopular.com.

KnifeTank included on BoingBoing’s Gamer Gift Guide 2020 list

I’m really honored that KnifeTank: The Shüffling was included on BoingBoing’s Gamer Gift Guide for 2020. Especially since there are so many other great games on that list too. I highly recommend trying Thousand Year Old Vampire, Gate, and Escape The Dark Sector if you get the chance too. I’m a big fan of all of those games.

Being on this list has really helped me move copies of KnifeTank this weekend. At this rate, I think there’s a really good chance I might totally sell out of the 1st edition before 2021 begins. Which means… it’s almost time for a 2nd edition!

One more bit of news, each order from KnifeTank.com comes with a new collectable KnifeTank card! The “Santa’s Slay” Tank is the first new tank I’ve done since the launch of the game. The card doesn’t need any special rules to be added to the game. It’s a fast little tank, with a 50/50 chance of doing 2 HP damage in collisions.

Robert Tinney’s Visions Of The Future

Though I’ve seen a few of these on bookshelves over the years, I’ve only recently come to truly appreciate Robert Tinney‘s beautifully painted covers for Byte magazine.

Tinney’s futuristic paintings appeared on Byte’s covers from 1975-1986 and and really set the magazine apart from other tech journalism of it’s era. Here’s a great write up about Tinney and Byte.
