We are VERY close!

While we haven't posted recently, that does not mean we aren't working.  We are very close to releasing our Kickstarter for Gauntlet of Heroes!  We estimate our Kickstarter will be live in mid to late February.  We will update this blog with all of the active Kickstarter data we will certainly post it here.

We will be offering some very cool support levels, including...
  • A sponsor level to have your portrait in art on a hero card.  This is a huge deal, as there will only be a few choice spots for this.
  • A sponsor level just like the hero, but instead, a villain!  Who doesn't want to be a main antagonist in the game...there will also only be a few choice spots to sponsor.
  • Plus other choices, stay tuned!
We have received several prototypes and play tested them, to really good responses.  Gamers and non-gamers alike have told us the game is both easy to learn, and a "ton of fun" to play.

We have also updated our rules, you can find them on our website (  We are always open to new questions or comments.  Please take a look at our rules and let us know if they make sense.  Our contact data is below...

We keep moving forward

Well, Tree City Comicon is behind us.  We didn't get nearly enough time there, but we promise, we will be ramping up play testing in the coming months.  We are pretty much ready for the Kickstarter at this point, but with the holidays are quickly approaching, and we know that folks get pretty focused there, so we will take our time to ensure we have everything in place for the Kickstarter in the mid February timeframe.  We will be full speed ahead at Radcon ( this time around, and will be directing folks to our Kickstarter page.  We know that so many Kickstarter campaigns promise a release date and often they delay many months before they release.  We want to ensure that our promised release date will be the one we deliver on.

Come check out our Facebook page and like us so you will receive regular updates, as well as new art.  Thanks to all of you who are supporting us, and we look forward to posting more updates in the coming months.

Come see us at Tree City Comicon

Greetings all
Lot's of interesting things are going on with FlameStryke Games (  We have been working hard on Gauntlet of Heroes, and just received our preview boxes with cards, and they look awesome!  We will be submitting our game to ( for a game preview which will happen in the February time frame.  Dice Tower does 1-2 previews per month to their nearly 70,000 YouTube fan base, so we will get some great exposure there as well.

Our Kickstarter campaign will kick off in the February time frame as well.  Given the time of year, with the holidays closing in, we wanted to wait until the new year, and we want this to be the best it can be, and there is no reason to rush things.  The longer we put into the game, with play testing etc., it will only make the game better.

We will be attending Tree City Comicon (, come see us on Saturday, we'll be in the game room demo-ing our game.  We really need your help and opinions, they help us make the game much better.
Check out our web site, we update it regularly and post new card art regularly.  Also, please go to our website and check out our rules and leave your thoughts about what makes sense and more importantly, what doesn't make sense.

That's it for now...we will post an update after we finish with Tree City Comincon.  Thanks and have a great day!

Notes from Salt Lake Comic Con (and plans for Tree City Comic Con)

Well its been a few weeks since Salt Lake Comic Con.  Nothing like 120,000 of your closest friends huddled together for a glimpse of Bruce Campbell and Stan Lee.  At least everyone (well most everyone) showered before showing up.

Couple of Notes from the Con:
Shout outs to several people met at the numerous panels I attended.  Hopefully I didn't bother them too much with all the questions.  These guys were all invaluable and hold tremendous insight and advice to new independent game designers.
 Chris Hoffman (Salt City Strangers)

 Josh Butterfield (Super Showdown and Paranormal Investigation board games)

Jeremy Gates (the brains and the math know how to

These guys also host the UndeadSoup Podcast:
This Podcast has a lot of awesome information on Independent game publishing and Kickstarter information. Actually they share great information and interviews with all kinds of independent publishers, writers, and game designers.  You need to check it out!

These guys were beyond fantastic and gave me several hints and ideas for a successful Kickstarter for Gauntlet of Heroes.

In addition, another shout out to Michael Mindes and Daniel Hadlock from Tasty Minstrel Games.
Thanks for the time!

On other notes, we continue to get amazing artwork done by Giulio Fanfori.  I think you will all be surprised and impressed when the art comes out!
Dave and I are planning on showing up at Tree City Comic Con
on October 17th and 18th.  Find us and get in a game.  I am sure you will win.  In all of our play-testing, I have yet to win a single game.  (I have heard other game designers have this same "problem")
You can help us play test and have some fun with us!
Until Next time,
