The BS Blog

We’ve decided to make a list of our favourite crimes against the English language for you to enjoy. There are bound to be plenty in here you’ll agree with. There might even be some you’re guilty of.

Here are our definitive 7 tips on how to put on an epic games night. Read them. Memorise them. And put them into practice next time you have your pals over. You’ll have them thinking you’re the Great Gatsby of game night hosts.

If you don’t know what Success Kid is, I’ll assume you’re over 40, or under 20. The Success Kid meme is a photo of a baby on the beach with his fist clenched. And it’s usually accompanied by overlaid text saying something went better than expected.

Cafés with board games aren’t a new idea. But London has experienced a new wave of dedicated venues in recent years. And it’s not just cafés, either. We’re also talking board game pubs and bars that stock full encyclopedic volumes of your favourite and soon-to-be favourite games.
There’s left than half a day remaining to back our first ever game on Kickstarter. This project has been a wild ride and it’s taught us a great deal about running campaigns on Kickstarter.
We know you’re hungry for more information on the gangs, the thieves, the security, the snitch, and that ruthless Cartel that makes Plant-Based Riot such a savage food-fighting card game.
These are our favourite gaming content creators. Check them out. You won’t regret it. Our list is far from finished, though. We’re discovering new peeps all the time. So, if you follow someone that you’d like to tell us about, or you think we’ve missed an obvious titan of content off our list, we’re all ears.
Those of you that are regular readers of this blog will know, we’re all about responding to pop culture trends by creating smart and inventive products. And our plant-based range is no exception. 
We’ve reached a milestone in our campaign. We’re over 50% funded and we’re closing in on 150 backers. It’s been 18 months since we set out to create the best card game for families we possibly could - it’s been a voyage of discovery.
It’s been 18 months in the making. The fruits of our lockdown labours. In many ways, it’s a project that gave us a collective focus and sense of purpose during those difficult days of 2020. And now the day has finally arrived to let it loose on the world.

The rumours are true: our Kickstarter campaign for Plant-Based Riot is launching on 28th July. Plant-Based Riot is our latest card game for families and friends, and it’s going to be crowdfunded by our community.

Since we put a fair amount of blood, sweat and tears into this game, we’re absolutely chuffed to bits to see those efforts recognised by the great guys over at Mojo Nation. They’ve only gone and shortlisted the Plant Based Riot design team of Roberto, Courtney and Matt for the final of the Game Designer of the Year Award in the Party Game category!

If you feel like waiting for this latest Covid wave to blow over, why not bring Pride to you?? And to help your celebrations go off with a bang, we’ve put together a handy shopping list. There’s adult party games, funny gifts for a friend, and even little treats for yourself.

Pride shows that in the not too distant past, and even today, LGBTQ+ people are not able to express themselves safely. So it’s important inasmuch as it highlights that fact whilst giving power and strength to the movement through community.
To prove our devotion to the church of gift giving, we’ve created a gift guide that features just as many of other peoples’ products as our own. It’s all about sharing the love, baby. Especially on Father’s Day.

Whatever way you slice it, it ain’t easy to take care of houseplants. And for most of us, easy to care for houseplants, especially those that prefer low light (living in the UK, that’s a must), should be at the top of our shopping list when starting our plant parent journey.

To add a bit of perspective in terms of the scale and reach of these projects, the total funding generated by 355,058 backers across ten campaigns (so far) is a whopping £12,391,852! 💰💰💰
