It's been a while since I logged into the CSW Social site. Thought I'd take this opportunity to post about my new endeavor, Canvas Temple Publishing. Essentially it's a low-key vanity press for me and some friends to publish games we want to publish (rather than what anyone else wants :-). A number of friends have signed up and given me designs, and so far we've run 3 successful Kickstarter campaigns, with another running right now.

Our first game, which is now shipping, is Blitzkrieg in the West. Designed by my old friend Joseph Miranda, BitW is a detailed examination of the early war (2nd WW) invasion of France. Mounted maps, cards, thick counters, it's a very nice package and a great game. Robert "Smitty" Smith did a great illustrated AAR of the game on his Panzer Digest Facebook page.

Our second was my own design, WW2 Deluxe. It's a big-hex, big-counter, low-density treatment of the entire Second World War in Europe. Low-complexity, and finish-able in an evening. This one should ship within the next 60 days.

Our third Kickstarter game was Revelation War, designed by Ty Bomba. It's another big-pieces treatment of a hypothetical Middle East conflict involving all the local players (but no US!).

Running right now is Admirals' War by Brian Herr. This is essentially a redux/redesign of the venerable War at Sea/Victory in the Pacific games, combined into one integrated whole. Deluxe treatment, big pieces, and a great fun game. You can see this on at https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/563992304/admirals-war-world-w....

To check out more about the new company and see more information on these games, check it out at canvastemple.com. Old codgers, having fun, doing what we do (and trying to retire! :-)
