We here at Foolish Media are pleased to announce that we have launched a series of videos that will show you the ins and outs of playing Fill in the Game!
Each week, over on facebook, we will be posting a picture of a new card, and card type from the game, and we are looking for you to Fill in the Game! Send us your suggestions on how you would challenge a friend to play the game, and may we will include it in the next video!
We have recorded 2 videos so far in the series. The First video, featuring Chad and his assistant Kez, can be found here. The first video featurings a Green / Easy Challenge from the Challenge Deck, and the latest video (available here) features 3 of the 4 fools, and one Greek Goddess showing how medium challenges will work!
Next, we will have a hard challenge video, where we show you how to use Stunt Cards, and then a video on Game Changers, and then we will finish up with a couple of videos of turns / games being played to give you an idea of how this all comes together!
Do you have a Dungeons & Dragons game, and are looking for a Boss to toss in the mix? Do you think that it would be awesome if some of D&D’s most iconic monsters were there to give your low level parties some iconic monsters to find?
Look no further, than Foolish Media’s first Monster! Gozer, the Bone Sculptor, is a “Gazer” type Beholder monster, designed on the 2 Fools Rushing Podcast #177 “2 Fools and the campaign Preparation” .
You can listen to the episode, and check out just how we came up with this guy over on the podcast page, and you can now download Gozer the Bone Sculptor (FOR FREE!) right here.
A special thanks, and shout out to Natural Crit, and their awesome homebrew template!
Con on the Cob has come, and sadly gone, for 2018.
We fools (and honorary fool Brad) would like to take a moment to thank each and every Attendee who stopped by the booth, demo tables, or clucked around in our Dungeons and Dragons One Shot. We met new friends, reconnected with old friends, and had an absolute amazing time. A bird may not have the time to fart, But fools do! (thank you Andy, Chad can’t get that out of his head.)

…And Origins is a wrap! It was a great show, and we are ecstatic with how well the show went for us.
Between the demos we ran, the connections we made, and the Kickstarter backers we were able to meet when they picked up their loot, this was a dream come true.
Here are some of the images we were able to get from the event.
While Origins is over, that’s not the end of the story for Oh Cluck!, or Foolish Media!. On top of all of the demos we ran, we spent a significant portion of our time meeting other businesses, and working on new and exciting partnerships.
Stay tuned, great things are coming!
Do you have a picture of Foolish Media / Oh Cluck! from Origins and want to share it? Send it to us, and we’ll add you, and your photo to our gallery!
The Fools are ready for the big reveal of Oh Cluck!
The Fools are going to be at Booth 439, and are excited for the world to see Oh Cluck!
If you haven’t heard the news, Kickstarter Backers will be able to pick up their product at Origins, which also means… If you missed the chance to back on Kickstarter, you can buy Oh Cluck!, and the Eggspansion at Origins!
Welcome to another Design Diary! Today’s Design Diary focuses on Roosters, and we’re going to use a very special Rooster as the Preview. Meet the Farmer! The Farmer is one of the “Roosters” from the Eggspansion, and is a very special Addition to the game. His farm’s barnyard is the epicenter for our brawl.
When we design a Rooster, we try REALLY hard to come at each Rooster from a thematic sense. Name, or what the Rooster is, has come first more often than not, and the ability is themed accordingly.
With this Rooster, we looked at trying to think of a Farmer just trying to do his farming chores while his crazy Roosters are staging a brawl! So, what does a chicken farmer do? He collects his eggs.
When thinking about the relative toughness of a Rooster, 3 feathers is the minimum (for non canned Roosters). The farmer, being a little stronger than your average Rooster comes in at a 4. We could have given him more feathers, but then we would have wanted to tone down the ability, to make sure that he wasn’t a giant wall that allowed the wielder of the farmer to just waltz to a win.
We kept his eggs low, to make sure that he wasn’t going to get the “Take A Dive” treatment, and make for a not fun play experience. We didn’t want him to have zero eggs, because then it felt more like an annoyance to have to engage him than anything else.
We’ve just crossed over the 48 hour threshold! We are now less than 2 days away from the end of the Campaign, and we’re very thankful for each and every backer.
Today, I bring you another Design Diary installment, focusing on the Party Fowl “Sleeping Dogs Lie” from Oh Cluck, The Eggspansion!
When we set out to design party fowls, we have a couple of “guidelines” we try and stick to.
1.) They enter play, and either attach to, or replace / become your Rooster
2.) They will get scored in someone’s Egg Basket (even when worth no eggs) , meaning that they are only seen once per game.
So when looking for parts of the year to highlight in the Eggspansion, we thought about the Dog Days of Summer.
We went through a couple of iterations of the card, until we settled on this. With 1 Feather, Sleeping Dogs Lie only affords a thin layer of protection for your Rooster (unless you’ve got dodges). Once the Party Fowl takes a damage, the person who damaged it scores it in their victory pile, and the effect ends.
But, while Sleeping Dogs Lie is attached to your Rooster, enemies may think twice about trying to mess with you!
Good News Everyone!
Ray has completed all of the Art for the Eggspansion! We’re really proud of all the artwork that he has put together for this game!
In the Faberge’ and Carton of Awesome versions of Oh Cluck!, we have talked about Tarot Card Sized Roosters. Mr. Eggbert is here to show off this fancy size for the Roosters. The size difference you seen above is really accurate.
This will make the Roosters really stand out on the table, and definitely makes playing the game with bigger groups a more positive experience.
800 Feathers, and Trick or Treat are a couple of the new pieces of Art for the Eggspansion!
Stay tuned as we close in on the end of the campaign! We’re going to finish spoiling the Eggspansion for you, and may throw a few more surprises at you!
