Bored with retirement, former Wizards of the Coast art director Jesper Myrfors of Snohomish likes the chances of his new chip-tossing game 'Clout Fantasy'

The 40-year-old Snohomish resident was the art director for Wizards of the Coast, the Seattle-based company behind "Magic the Gathering," a fantasy card-playing game that revolutionized the genre.

Now he's back, with many of his former Wizards partners, in a new venture called Hidden City Games. They're promoting a new game, "Clout Fantasy," which combines the role-playing strategy of the Magic games with physical dexterity: the game pieces - decorated poker chips - are tossed onto the playing surface.

The game debuted last week at a convention in Las Vegas, and it's due to hit U.S. stores in July. The early buzz is good, Myrfors said. "The forecast is looking incredible - better than our best-case scenario." FullStory

14 million Xbox power cord recall a vain attempt?

Even after that big stink MS put up about replacing those 14 million some-odd dangerous Xbox cables with the very safe, very overdone ones with boxes full of circuit interrupters and bomb-proof radiation shielding, it turns out the issue with fried Xboxes isn’t in the power cable at all. Source
