Big news! We plan to launch the Kickstarter campaign for RANKaree on Tuesday, March 27th. Stay tuned as we tease more details….

The Living Starship play test we did this past weekend was a success. The new deck-building elements of the game (that replaced the previous dice-rolling mechanic) are working quite well.

Now it’s time to buckle down and polish off the RANKaree campaign. We’ve got a video to produce and still need to get all the elements for online digital play (via uploaded, plus…you know….work, make a living, grocery shop and all that.

We did, however, come up with an improved design for the RANKaree cards (AFTER paying for 10 prototypes and uploading the images to Tabletopia), so there will be some more work to finish them up for print-readiness. What are your thoughts on the new look?

We decided that since the cards are meant to represent the crew of each player’s starship, they should have imagery to reflect that. While the idea of the old cards was to resemble the Fleet uniforms, the new cards accomplish both.

There must be something in the air. We randomly discovered ANOTHER misprint/layout error in the military rank poster for the Living Starship setting. We ended up creating a whole new layout:

So, we’ve been out of commission for a couple weeks due to medical stuff (you know, nothing major, just some spinal surgery). But…we are getting back on track now!

We are gearing up to launch RANKaree on Kickstarter in early March and still have a few review copies to send out. We happened to discover an irritating misprint (the Agency Corporal card is numbered with a “1” and should be the number “2” card in that suit) so we’re getting some replacement cards sent out.

While dealing with that and AFTER uploading all the graphic files on to Tabletopia so that the game can be played digitally, we thought of a better layout/design for the cards that is more reflective of the theme, especially given that the cards represent the crew of your starship:

Further details on “How to Play Living Starship” have been uploaded.

Today's glimpse into the development of the Living Starship Game is at the Uniform Cards.

Citadel Fleet Crew members are all issued uniforms that not only designate their division of service, rank and department specialty, but are wearable pieces of technology.

Their uniforms are attuned to each wearer's specific genetic identity and help regulate their bio-functions, integrate them directly into the ship's digital systems, serve as emergency space suits and can be upgraded with additional software and hardware device utilities.

Wed. Jan 17 2018

There are two opportunities this weekend to play test Living Starship in all it’s new glory.

Happy New Year everyone!

This is the year that Living Starship dives into it’s final stages of development. We have ditched the dice mechanic system and it’s being overhauled to feature deck-building elements along with the already-existing worker placement methodology. We cannot describe the excitement of how the new format is making us feel.

RANKaree will be hitting Kickstarter in February and copies are being sent out to reviewers and are available for playing in Denver local game stores (Both Enchanted Grounds locations, Board Game Republic and the Wizard’s Chest).

Had a smashing good time at B-Con & Conclave this weekend. We managed to demo/play test Rankaree, 3 sessions of Scenario #1 for Living Starship plus the very first test of Scenario #2 AND got in the inaugural play test of the new deck-building/legacy aspect of 7 Sign Circle!

Kudos to the organizers and volunteers who made the convention great and a special thank you to all the play testers who stopped at our table and contributed to the evolution and improvement of our games.

Tue. Aug 22 2017

Last week’s epiphany has evolved into a significant re-development of 7 Sign Circle. Follow along in the blog.

We are also now all set to demo games at Rocky Mountain Con on the last weekend in September. Come check out the latest developments in the Living Saga: Starship & Empires.

Tue. Aug 15 2017

So, in the midst of all the fervor of creating Living Starship Game content (Rankaree, the Living Starship Board Game, the solo character "Choose your own adventure"-style game books), I woke up this morning with a completely different game idea burning a hole in my brain.

Stay tuned for more details about a unique legacy-style deck building card game!

As we’re diving into Denver Comic Con this weekend, we just want to invite you to a special event coming up on JULY 11th here in Denver - the Shakedown Cruise (first public play test) of SPACE BINGO! Help us work the kinks out of this co-operative twist on a traditional bar game.

Space BINGO logo2

Some come join us at Mile High Hamburger Mary’s (17th & Humboldt) at 7:30 pm.

Who will be indoctrinated as officers? Who will be the enlisted crew? Who will win prizes? And most importantly, can we COLLECTIVELY win the bingo game.

This plays like traditional bingo but with custom bingo sheets derived from the Citadel Fleet Service Divisions (Engineering, Agency, Health, Tactical, Operations, Science and Flight). With each bingo you get you will be awarded with FREE SPACE tokens that you can use for yourself or to help one of your crew mates make that critical bingo match to help win the overall mission. If all missions are completed then EVERYBODY wins!

Tonight is the debut of the first evolution of our Wig Wars Game Show at Mile High Hamburger Mary’s at 8pm!

The Wig is Right live game show!

It works pretty much like Wig Wars, but every person in the audience is a potential participant and everyone is a potential winner if they vote during the game with their GLAM Bucks. Each Glam Buck that correctly votes for an element of the game (name, face, frock, moves and wig) gets put into the bucket for the final prize drawing.

Every person that helps create an element of a queen gets extra glam bucks put in the pot!

The first print of RANKaree has been ordered from the print-on-demand service - The Game Crafter which means that the game will be available for you to purchase within the next 10 days or so.

In the meantime, you can download the RULES and prepare yourself to outrank all your friends with this casual card game with surprising strategy.

Tue. Apr. 18 2017

We have rapidly developed a brand new CASUAL card game utilizing the military rank system from Living Starship:

rankaree logo

The game plays quickly and is very easy to learn. It is made of a deck of 98 hexagonal cards of 7 suits (one for each Division in the Fleet: Agency, Engineering, Flight, Health, Operations, Science and Tactical) and each suit has 14 cards - 7 Officers and 7 Enlisted.

The object of the game is to collect the most JOB tokens by playing the highest rank card from your hand. Once all the job tokens have been claimed, points are totaled and a new job starts with one additional token added to the set.

The deck is also has 7 SETBACK cards in it. When one is drawn all the unclaimed tokens of one color are removed from the job. If there are none to remove, the job is over. The game ends immediately when the 7th Setback card is drawn.

Rankaree Card Spread

We’ll be demoing this game along with the full Living Starship Board Game all day this Saturday at Denver’s Starfest Convention.

Tue. Apr. 11 2017

After a smashing round of play testing the Living Starship Game at Board Game Republic this past weekend, we are gearing up for the next public outing for the game - Starfest Convention

New game concept in the works - SportsBall. It will likely be both a live audience game show appearing in bars in the Denver area as well as a tabletop parlor game to play at home.

Mon. Sep. 27 2016
Available now - the full print version of 7 Sign Circle at the print-on-demand service, The Game Crafter. We elected to go with a smaller box (than the prototype pictured here) to lessen the overall cost of the game.

That does mean, however, that there is no copy of the circle mat (it won't fit) but it’s by no means needed to play any of the games as you can lay out the cards and tokens in a circle anywhere. But you can print out a copy HERE on your own printer (click on the circle image for a full-resolution rendering).

Plus we are working on a live pub game version utilizing the 7 Sign Circle set with some Denver Breweries. Stay tuned for more details emerge.

There are rules posted in the updated PDF for a new 7 Sign Circle game called Scion. Can you be the first in your magic-user academy class to master magic aspected to 2 of the eleven signs? 

Maybe you’ll become the Ghost Scion by mastering Spirit and Dream magic or the Grave Scion by combining Blood and Stone magic!

Mon. Sep. 19 2016
The card files and rules for 7 Sign Circle are available for FREE download at DriveThruCards. This is the print-and-play version, meaning you’ll need to print and cut out the card files to make your own deck.

Fri. Sep. 9 2016
Fun news! We’re rapid-developing a new card game called 7 Sign Circle by Layman Kingsford. Normally, game design takes months or even years for us but this one just sprang to mind and was put into Alpha-version action in 2 days!

7 Circle Signs is a rummy-like game of hand management and set collection. It is elementary to learn but has scads of deeper possibilities what with there being 11 suits of 11 cards each pulled from the Living Empires setting (with versions of this game still being played 3,000 years later by inhabitants of the Living Starship cosmos)

Not to be a tease or anything….BUT….something fun is coming soon to Denver.

It’s live! It’s Crass! It’s full of cocktails and it’s all about the GLAM! You’ll get to play the game, if you have the sass to pull it off.

Wed. June. 1 2016
IF you place your orders now on our RedBubble store, you should still be able to get your Fleet regulation uniform apparel in time to play a crew member on the CSS Valiant Venture’s maiden voyage at Denver Comic Con in a couple weeks.

We can’t wait to have you participate in the live BETA test of the Living Starship game at the convention and get your feedback, ideas and your stories inspired by the one-of-a-kind interactive experience. Please find us in room 705 at the convention to sign up!

Wed. May. 25 2016
Hey all you sci-fi writers! Cheeky Dingo Entertainment is launching the first public beta-test of the Living Starship Game at Denver Comic Con in June.

We'd love to have you participate by playing the digital/live-interactive game and become a member of the ship crew that will face some monumental events in the Citadel Galaxy over the course of the convention weekend.

Then...if you were to write about your character's experience through this opening chapter of the epic saga, we're hoping to publish the story from as many character points of view as possible!

Thu. May. 19 2016
Living Starship’s game app will immerse you in onboard life on the massive new ship-of-the-line, the CSS Valiant Venture. You get to make a unique character from 10 racial choices and serve in one of the Fleet’s 7 divisions - Agency, Health, Science, Tactical, Flight, Engineering and Operations.

The first public BETA playtest will be held at this year’s Denver Comic Con. Hopefully many of you will want to write about the story that transpires over the con weekend and help us make a massive fiction experience for readers. Imagine choosing from hundreds of points of view - a newly graduated engineering cadet or a master sergeant in charge of logistics or a naive tactical lieutenant put in charge of far more experienced enlisted crew!

Tue. Apr. 29 2016
Living Starship’s game app is progressing nicely and should be ready for the massive public beta test at Denver Comic Con 2016.

Above is what the description pages of each of the Fleet’s service departments is looking like. There are 34 different departments spread among the 7 divisions. Below is what the navigation page to all the info/database pages is looking like.

We also have a series of merchandise now available for purchase in all seven Fleet division colors through
