The Forevergeek Kickstarter Store

Hello :)

This is David from Forevergeek.com. For the last few months we have been working on a resource area 

for our site that is a collection of geek related products that were funded via successful 

Kickstarter campaigns and are now available to purchase. Its called ‘The Forevergeek Kickstarter 

Store’ but we dont actually sell the products we simply have a page for each product with 

information about it, images and video clips and link to where it can be bought. Here’s the link:

http://store.forevergeek.com/

We did this as Kickstarter doesnt really cater for products once the funding is complete and we 

thought it would be a cool idea to bring all these kinds of products together and help some of 

these creators get some exposure. 

There are 8 different categories in total and almost 100 products already (and more being added 

each week) from board & card games to movies, novels, indie video games and art. There is also the 

option to sign up as a user and have your own profile page with links to all your social media 

accounts and a wishlist where you can keep track of products you want to buy but dont have the cash 

to right now, finally users can write reviews of any product in the store. We have lots of plans to 

add more functions in the future too.

We released the store in beta last week and we are now reaching out to websites and blogs in this niche to see if they would like to feature us in a post as we think this would be of great interest to people involved in the ‘geek’ culture :)

I can provide some screenshot images if you wish too.

thanks for your time,

regards,

David Jones

Puzumi: Combining Puzzles and Board Games

Puzumi announces puzzle lineup that challenges, entertains and decorates

Brain teasing puzzles change the way people solve and use puzzles with multiple solutions and challenging games

August 26 2013 - Puzumi officially announces the unveiling of their beautifully crafted acrylic puzzle line up. These mathematically crafted puzzles are available on their website Puzumi.com. Don’t expect the puzzles they make to be anything like ordinary puzzles dumped from a box with a single image and a single solution - they are a mind teasing task full of creativity, multiple solutions, and are fun for people of all ages.

With each unique Puzumi puzzle you have the chance to really flex your most important muscle, your creative mind, as you meet the challenge of arranging a geometric work of art into a pleasing image. Depending on the Puzumi puzzle you purchase the number of solutions can range from just a challenging few, to literally thousand of combinations. Not only do all of these solutions allow for stimulating mental exercise, but they also allow for you to use your Puzumi as a changeable piece of art that you can display in your office or home.

What’s even better is that you can do more than arrange pieces into a set shape like a normal puzzle, you can also play games with these puzzles! The games which you can play with your specific Puzumi puzzle are detailed in an instruction booklet that comes with your purchase.

The basic design idea behind each puzzle is that of a unique mathematical theorem. This is what makes each one so challenging and unique, and what allows for the great flexibility in their solutions, challenges and games. They are made from a durable acrylic-glass, which means that you can take the time to find all the different solutions for each puzzle without worry that they will warp like cheap cardboard can.

There are many benefits associated with the Puzumi puzzles, here are a few:

Multi use brain trainer

  • They stimulate your sense of touch and train your brain in a way a video game can’t.
  • Your eyes will take a well deserved break from the computer screen and interact with real world objects, a sorely missed aspect of modern brain training.
  • Everyone from adults to children can experience a multitude of different challenges and creative objectives with just one puzzle.
  • The creative and artistic parts of your brain have the chance to express themselves in art that you can easily display in your home or office.
  • Invite your friends over and play quick strategy games that are incredibly fun and mind-stimulating.

Long lasting construction and incredible design

  • An adjustable stand is included with most puzzles, allowing you the chance to display it as a piece of art that you can change when you want.
  • The durable acrylic glass construction, crafted right here in the USA, can last a lifetime, certainly much longer than cardboard!
  • Every puzzle design is based on a mathematical or geometrical concept, with a mathematician or master puzzle designer crafting each puzzle.

The purpose behind every Puzumi puzzle is to provide people with a pleasurable pastime that is mind stimulating, beautiful to look at, appropriate for a wide age range, and fun for beginners and experts alike. A Puzumi puzzle is well worth your time and money as it incorporates a timeless design with the universally loved concept of creating brain exercising art with you own two hands.

Kate Jones, one of the master puzzle designers, summarized it best when she said:

“Each puzzle set contains a bit of cosmic truth, nourishing the mind’s need to recognize system and structure. It is in symmetry and order that the mind finds its truest expression, its fullest sense of its own efficacy and of beauty.”

To learn more about Puzumi puzzles, visit their website at Puzumi.com. There, you will be able to learn more about these unique puzzles, see all of their breathtaking designs for yourself, and order the puzzle that will beautify your office or home once it is done stimulating your creative mind.

Games Workshop’s 80s Classic Chainsaw Warrior is Back

22nd July, 2013, Bristol, UK: The seminal hit board game Chainsaw Warrior, made by Games Workshop back in 1987 is set to return this year in a digital form. The original 80s game was a notable rarity in that it was a solo board game that pitted the player not against others but against the clock. The game saw New York balancing on the precipice of darkness as twisted forces from another reality attempted to rip the city from this world into theirs. Standing between them and the destruction of the city was a lone figure, the brutal and mysterious Chainsaw Warrior. As the eponymous hero, the player had to delve into a zombie infested New York tenement to locate the source of the evil spewing through the spatial rift and destroy it before he was destroyed. The game is being created by Bristol based indie developer Auroch Digital for mobile and desktop platforms.

Hi,

Wanted to let you know about our new strategy survival board game Tripods! Set during a Wellsian Martian invasion of Victorian London, players compete to score points by saving as many of the populace as they can. As the game goes on the alien red weed spreads, stations and docks close and the escape routes out of the city grow sparce as the Tripods take control. Will the players work together to defeat the Martian threat, or will instinct kick in and humanity turn on itself in a frantic bid to survive? You decide.

Tripods! the board game is available to pre-order now through indiegogo.com/projects/tripods-the-board-game and you can read the rules, see photos and a short video of the game in action on the website or on our facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/#!/pages/Tripods-the-board-game/387046358091495?fref=ts)

The rout of civilisation has begun!
