I lost! To myself! Which I think means I’ve won, right?

My ninjas have started to arrive! In typical ninja fashion, they snuck into my home via my 9 year old (who apparently the convinced didn’t need to mention to me that I had gotten a package).

A little while back I was contacted by the folks at One Bookshelf (you know them as DriveThruRPG, RPGNow, DriveThruFiction and many more) to check out their new Print on Demand service – DriveThruCards. I was really excited about the prospect. I was a beta tester for their PoD program when that first launched and the chance to get in early and have a product up and printed by DriveThruCards was something I jumped at.

Except I didn’t have any card games in the works. Sure, I had the prototype for Upgrade Wars – but I’d already printed those out through another service. DTC’s specifications for printing were a bit different and the thought of reformatting all of those cards (for the fourth time) was shudder inducing.

Then, like a sword in the dark, an idea hit me. Over the course of half a day, Ninja – Silent but Deadly was conceived, grew and was born. And now I had a small, quick card print run that needed to be done! A week past I worked with Brian at DTC to get the cards into the correct format and printed. Yesterday evening, I received them!

They look fantastic, were exactly what I was aiming for and even had that just-opened-the-booster-pack smell. In all, I’m very happy with them and with DriveThruCards.

Once their service does launch (which should be soon) you’ll be able to order Ninja -Silent but Deadly Just the Cards. This will come with everything you need to play this little meta-game and a download of the instructions as a PDF.

About Ben

I'm a geek. A nerd, a dweeb, whatever. Yes I owned garb, yes I still own medieval weaponry. And yeah, I could kick your butt in Mechwarrior the CCG. I love video games, role playing games, tactical board games and all forms of speculative fiction. I will never berate someone for wanting to be a Jedi and take everything Gary Gygax ever wrote as gospel. Well, all of this but that last bit.

  1. Well you can’t go wrong with anything anything that has ninjas. I’ve read the rules and it’s like hide and seek with cards involved? lol That’s pretty unusual.
