Hey all! Your pal Dan here! Wishing you a wonderful approximate 1PM Monday, Midwest time! Hoping all is well?

On our front, we have great news completely unrelated to the logistical matters of manufacture and delivery, as well as distribution, which all also cautiously forge ahead.

Indeed, the better to whet your appetite for the game proper, we have released a well illustrated and nicely edited, even somewhat decently voice acted (if I may say so myself) tutorial describing how to play Loyalty or Liberty?, to be used as a complement to the manual!

The tutorial can be found here:

Outstanding news, everyone!

Our beloved “Loyalty or Liberty?” kickstarter was funded as of a few days ago at 111% of the amount we were hoping for!

How awesome is that? So awesome. That's how awesome!

Thank you all so very much for helping us at Black Labrador Creations achieve this amazing goal, whether by spreading the word, playtesting, donating or giving moral support! You are all amazing, and I sure could not have done it without each and every one of you!

In the upcoming days, we at BLC will do our utmost, alongside the writing, designing, playtesting, and facilitation of manufacturing and delivery of new games, to keep you all updated at every stage to come, and if you have any questions, let us know on our Kickstarter Page!

A Little Insight Into Our Work of Late
over 1 year ago – Wed, Oct 13, 2021 at 06:28:47 PM

Hey everyone! Sometime no speak! Daniel here from Black Labrador Creations, wanting to check in on you all and keep you up to date with our adventures of late! 

Having reached our $20,000+ threshold for our kickstarter, we have wasted little time doubling down on our efforts to further spread the word and make our project worthy of your time and money. 

We continue to work feverishly on the aforementioend slideshow-style tutorials which we hope to post on youtube and on our kickstarter page in the near future, the better to teach people the basics of gameplay. The graphics for this project, along with the outpouring of pictures to engage you all on our Instagram and Facebook pages, takes much of Jason's time. He is also doing a spectacular job keeping in close contact with our manufacturing company, Print Ninja and trying to make the production of the game as cost effective as possible for all of us 

Meanwhile, I have done much to record the voice of Sir Watson Le Beau as he guides you through the game mechanics of Loyalty or Liberty in the tutorial, playtest the game time and time again with different audiences to see what they think of the game and make tweaks and improvements therewith, rewrite the manual and stats for the cards, and write and design the next book and board game for your collective consumption. 

Finally, the two of us together have both been very active on instagram and facebook, advertising our work and have been visiting a number of local gaming stores in regions important to us (New Jersey and Minnesota for me, New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania for him). Whether on foot or by Uber in my case, or by car for Jason, we are doing our best to spread the word of our exciting game! Our growing list of stores we've visited so far includes, but is not limited to:
