Official Statement on Politics

Given the political hysteria that has gripped the country lately, I felt it necessary to make an official statement regarding BRW Games’ stance when it comes to politics. So here it is:

We don’t care.

We create games for everyone, regardless of ideology, religion, race, gender, or anything else. We don’t create games to promote any political or religious or any other kind of agenda. We create games we think are fun.

If you like tabletop games, you’re more than welcome here, whoever you are. We’re creating games for you.


Joseph Bloch
President, BRW Games


Now Available: The Tomb of Harven Half-Skull

A hundred years ago, the pirate king Harven Half-Skull was buried with his ill-gotten booty in a secret tomb. Your band of adventurers have a map that claims to show the final resting place of the pirate king, and you’re off to claim his loot. But the dead do not rest easy…

The Tomb of Harven Half-Skull is an adventure for 3-6 characters of level 3-4, and is a classic dungeon crawl designed to be completed in a single gaming session.

Written for the Adventures Dark and Deep™ rules, The Tomb of Harven Half-Skull can be played with most Basic and Advanced compatible rule sets with little or no conversion needed.

ShireCon 2018

Yesterday BRW Games was at the first-ever ShireCon in the beautiful Berkshire mountains of Connecticut. This was a relatively small convention, held in a former church-turned-theater that had a very “Horticulture Hall” vibe. There were about a ten games being played in each of two sessions, and two other vendors were there to round things out.

Things went very smoothly, especially for a first-time convention. There was a very old-school vibe, with games like Swords & Wizardry and Paranoia being played, as well as a table doing Lord of the Rings miniatures (it looked like the battle of Helm’s Deep). I was fortunate enough to meet up with a number of friends and fans that I either hadn’t seen in a long while, or had never met face to face. Adventures Dark and Deep and Castle of the Mad Archmage were both big hits among the shoppers, and we seemed to make a positive impression overall.

This was also our first time using the video screen for prices and promotion (you can see it on the right side of our table in some of the photos below). It got a lot of positive comments!

This was a terrific small convention, and well worth the trip. BRW will definitely be there next year, and hopes to see the con grow.
