Battle for Greyport is the awesome prequel to The Red Dragon Inn. The Red Dragon Inn is about a bunch of adventurers drinking in a pub after a quest is over, but Battle for Greyport is the actual quest! It's an opportunity to meet your drunk heroes before they were drunk!
on the topic of milo humphrey, i wish we had seen a little bit more of what happened between georgina showing up heavily pregnant at the loft and georgina fucking off to st. barts. like, what on earth does dan humphrey attempting to co-parent a newborn baby with georgina sparks, of all people, look like? as toxic as she might be, georgina’s dynamic with dan was always darkly hilarious to me, and im very curious about how they uh, dealt with each other during that time period
this is actually something that WILL come up eventually in my wonder how; wonder why verse! (even though that’s the one with the dangina wedding and all that.) i think it’s notable that when georgina says she’s taking milo, dan doesn’t really protest re: her mothering skills. if georgina was an abusive/neglectful mother At That Stage i feel like dan might have put up more of a struggle, some sort of “he may not be biologically mine, but i have been taking care of him better than you have!” but there’s no hint to that sentiment, nothing like that at all.
and i KNOW that dan’s self worth is shit, i know he wouldn’t outright go “you involved me in this, i became his parent when i signed that birth certificate” (he could’ve contested legally to keep milo, and he might’ve actually won that case, but we know he would not have done that.) but remember in s1 when alison comes back and dan yells at her about leaving because “jenny needs her mother”?? if georgie wasn’t good to milo, i think we would’ve seen it.
the canon implication is extremely very much that georgina and dan were actually splitting responsibilities more or less evenly, before she abandons him briefly (& then comes back and takes milo away for good.) they probably took turns staying up if needed, feeding milo, changing milo, etc. and given the fact that dan seems a lot less :/ about the situation as i would expect him to be, i really do headcanon georgina to have been. uh. actively involved in co-parenting milo, for that period of time.
i do think that georgina has a sort of soft spot for dan - which is not to say she’s good to him or anything, but more like that relationship is one that she enjoys (even though it’s absolutely objectively not a healthy one.) the fact that dan was ready to turn his life upside down inside out for milo INCLUDES georgina - in the sense that he was turning his life upside down to let both G & milo stay with him. and if what she was telling him about the circumstances that led to her being pregnant and needing to flee and get help were true - even if they weren’t true, her desperation seemed pretty real - i think she really needed the sort of stability and grounding nature that being at dan’s would’ve provided.
so i think she would be Nice to him for a bit. and he’d get lulled into a fake sense of stability, which - georgina sparks is the exact opposite of stability. the only thing consistent about georgina is that NOTHING is consistent about georgina.
a miniseries that just goes into the antics of dan & georgina raising milo (while georgina causes trouble and vanessa & nate try to ensure that dan is okay, because georgina sure as hell isnt doing that) would be such fun. just 10 episodes. i haven’t watched shameless, but isn’t there a moment where one of the kids snorts cocaine by accident? i feel like that’s pretty much what’d happen if georgie was on her own with milo. and dan of course knows this, knows georgina, so he overcompensates. he’s taking care of everything all the time. he would wrap milo in bubble wrap if that’d keep him safe. and nate and vanessa are just chilling in the loft watching everthing burn (metaphorically) like ‘wow, dan and his ex girlfriend objectively have no chill. wow.”

India Needs Oxygen - Charity Stream Raised $17,000!
In case you missed it, Beneeta and AnnaMaria hosted a charity stream on May 2nd to raise money for Covid relief in India. The initial goal was $4,000 and they ended up raising over $17,000!! We loved watching the gaming community come together during the stream to raise a bunch of money. Many of the publishers that we all love made donations to this campaign and we were happy to contribute funds too.
As you’re probably aware, we’re big on community and we have been since launching in 2009. When you support The Game Crafter with your purchases, you are also helping us support various charities, non-profits, schools, and indie board game designers/events around the world. Thanks for your support! :)

Candyland: Pastime or Past Its Prime?
In today's blog post, we discuss Candyland's reputation and some ways to improve the game!
If you ask the average person to name five board games off the top of their head, you can pretty readily guess some of their replies. Monopoly is always there, Scrabble is often second, and then you’ll get a smattering of Candyland, Chutes & Ladders, Sorry, and the like, and then a few outliers like Mouse Trap, Trouble, The Game of Life, and so on.
Candyland is a perennial name on that list, but…

Top 5 games? (Boardgames, videogames, mobile games...)
The Sims (3 & 4) and Minecraft are the only games that I regularly play but I also like Banished (which I go thorugh phases of playing all day every day for a month and then not touching it for a year), Telltale's The Walking Dead (which I haven't played in a zillion years but miss a lot) and The Last of Us (which I've never actually played other than 5mins at my friends house like 6years ago but I've watched it be played on YT quite a few times)
Ask me my Top 5/Top 10 Anything

Game Concept: Chess. But there is a third player with pieces called Mercanaries, which can work to either help one side or the other (or even be double agents) or attempt to capture a king for themselves to win the game.
