It’s been over a year since we made Specimen available in print-n-play form. Since then we’ve continued to work and improve it. Right now we’re working on an expansion for Specimen as well as a brand new companion game involving the rescue mission sent from DeLeo-Kaga.

In order to do these things, we needed to find out what happened to our Ship, Crew and Specimen in universe.

Now, we could have just made it up, cause we’re clever about stuff like that. But instead, we decided to play the game and have the results be what happened. So, we decided to run a special Specimen tournament, with the final game being used to determine the history. In honor of the NCAA men and women’s basketball tournament, we’re calling it Specimadness.

First, we got in touch with seven really good Specimen players (cause there are seven crew members in the game – get it?) and asked if they were interested.

Once they were all on board, we put together this nifty bracket and started scheduling the games.

It should be a lot of fun. We’ll be posting AARs of the games, so stay tuned faithful readers!

Here’s a cool trailer showing what’s coming up at the end of the season on The Flash. Some exciting stuff from one of the truly great new shows.

Enjoy

p.s. More Grodd!!!! How cool is this gonna be???
