Let’s Go Exploring

Thank you to every one of our readers, who made every moment of this worthwhile.

Thank you to our guest contributors, who allowed us to take breaks, and ensured we came back reinvigorated, by creating comics so good we felt we had to up our own game.

Thank you to anyone who ever shared our comic with a friend, or on social media, and helped spread the word.

Thank you to the readers that we had the pleasure of meeting – hopefully in the years to come, we will get to meet some more.

Thank you to everyone who ever left even a single comment. I feel like I say it all the time, but it’s true: comments are what connected us to our readers, and what kept us going, week to week. We will keep our social media, and this site, up and running so we can stay in touch, and let you all what we will be working on in the future. Please, always feel free to say hello and keep in touch with us. We still want to talk about board games with you all, so let us know what you are playing!

Thank you to all of our great friends that we get to play games with. You are a great bunch of people, and damned hilarious as well. Playing games with you all is what kept the comic going!

Lastly, I want to mention Semi Co-op. Their fantastic weekly webcomic is where you can still go to get your fix board game-related shenanigans. They are lovely people, and they are making a wonderful comic. They mentioned once to us that Tiny Wooden Pieces is part of what inspired them to make their own comic. That might just be the best thing that anyone has ever said about Tiny Wooden Pieces, and knowing that we had even a small part in getting someone else to do something like this is the best legacy I can think of.

They update every Monday, and while you are checking out their comic, know that we will be there with you.


Thank you for reading.

If you live in, around, near, or even just in the general landmass that supports the city of Cork, you should come along to the Tabletop Cafe pop-up this Sunday. It’s upstairs in the Roundy Bar on Castle St. If you come along say hello! I’ll be helping out all day, and would be delighted to meet some readers, and if it’s not too busy, maybe even play some games as well. I am even willing to play a wizardy game, if you ask really nice. Maybe.

Next week we begin our now-annual tradition of Guest Week. This is where we get our excellent friends and collaborators to make some comics for the site, putting some variety into proceeds, and allowing us a break over Christmas. Well, I say us, but really, I mean Aileen. While I can knock out a script in about an hour, in between writerly naps on the couch, it can then take Aileen the better part of two days to pencil, ink, and colour it. Guest Week also allows us to recharge our batteries, and I always feel we come out of the break making better comics.

The plan as it stands now is to have two ‘guest comics’ over the next three weeks, and also include our own Christmas special (yes, Guest Week runs for three weeks, it’s a thing). I am not yet 100% when our comic will run in that three-week period, but obviously, I would encourage you all to come and check out the guest comics as well.

We have some returning guest creators with Damien Duncan and Dave McNally, and a couple of exciting new faces as well. Everyone involved in Guest Week is someone I have worked with before on other comic projects. They are all people I trust to deliver great work. They are as good as, and in some cases, clearly better than, our own work. I will also continue to include a blog post with each comic, so while we get to take a break, you don’t actually get to take a break from me.

Soz. LOLZ.

Also by this time next week, I will have seen Rogue One, so I will likely be unable to think about anything else at that point – so expect a blog post about it. I am so excited! Is everyone else not this excited as well?

HO HO HO Star Wars!
