Here’s a board game that I’ve been noodling with called Wizard Sailing.

Man I don’t know if I’ll ever be able to make a working board game by myself. It feels like I’m as unlikely to make a board game than I am to make a video game, like I’m missing some fundamental math skills, or that I don’t “think in games” like I know some designers do. HOWEVER this is a lot of fun and I’m going to keep noodling with it.

Haha okay, so Wizard Sailing DID NOT WORK. The elements listed here functioned alright but there was a whole other part of the game (including cards the cards and a player board shown in the photo above) that were a disaster. I have some new ideas to try, so here’s hoping for the next version of this.

Things to develop still.
1). Figure out penalties for when boats hit rocks, and each other.
2). Figure out how the game begins, how to simulate the chaotic start of a real sailing race.
3). Figure out the point system.

and, most importantly,

4). Make it feel more wizardy! One thing I want to do when I re-develop the cards and the player boards is to make a spell system that feels good, and figure out spells (like rock formations, wind control, second boats, torpedoes etc.) and how to make the spells fun without having the game turn into a random pile.

But yeah! I’m going to keep plugging at this.

I want this game to be a reality, real bad! Wizard boat racing with spells and wind sounds A W E S O M E

On writing Tomboy



Hello, my name is Liz Prince, and I recently completed my first graphic novel. Writing that sentence is a big deal to me, considering that I am someone who has been active in comics for over 50% of my life at this point, and has had a publishing career with Top Shelf…

I want it NOWWWW. Get here, September!

The first 200 mail-orders come with all the stuff in this picture including this screen-printed Liz Suburbia sticker with a panel from their comic that makes my heart sing.

Also included (for everyone who mail-orders, not just the first 200) is this full-color poster by Will Laren (on the back of our catalog) and a Silver Sprocket sticker designed by this issue’s cover artist Lauren Denitzio.


You’re not a true punx if you don’t go order the new As You Were zine RIGHT NOW!
