Sumo Gnomes

Become a Sumo Gnome wrestling to eject your opponent from the tree stump arena! 
Use custom dice to move, push, spin and trick your way around the stump, looking for that crucial advantage you'll need to push your opponent off and claim victory!
Sumo Gnomes is a quick and portable game that is ready to play in less than a minute and will pop back in your pocket when battling is done.

This game is in the final stages of development, it has been well received at various gaming conventions across the UK and and we are now applying the final touches before heading to Kickstarter where we hope to raise the funds for a full retail release!

We are starting to get feedback from reviewers and I'm happy to say it's all been good so far. If you would like to see a video that shows how the game plays then I here's one I put together using a preview copy that I made myself (I like making things)



If all goes well the base game will be made in Germany and the deluxe game will be made in Hungry. Deluxe you say? Why yes, as well as the pocket version I am working on a hand made version that uses 30mm dice which is played on an actual tree stump!

Lots or lovely links! 😁

Summoner's Isle coming to Kickstarter 4th September

I am super excited (and nervous) to announce that Summoner's Isle will be live on Kickstarter from September 4th 2018. It's been had work but I have had lots of help from some very talented and knowledgable people. If successful this will mean that Summoner's Isle be able to spread t's leathery dragon-like wings and explore the world! *fingers crossed*

The traits for which we are known

I like to keep busy, most commonly not doing the things I really should be doing, but still, if I do not have a project to work on my brain gets itchy. Over the years I've made furniture, jewelry, written (very) short stories, designed T-shirts, screen printed, made costumes, designed board games and more. All of which have been purely for the love of creating something. The aim is for Peculiarity to become a place where some of my ventures have a more permanent place to live and will hopefully pique your interest.

UK Games Expo 2018

Exciting times:

Very soon I shall be in Birmingham with Summoner's Isle at the UK Games Expo (UKGE) and I am whilst very excited, I'm more than a little nervous. Yet thanks to a recommendation by Yay! Games, I have spent the last month talking with a printer that specialize in small production runs. And I am very excited to announce that for sale at UKGE will be a very limited first print run (just 45 copies) of Summoner's Isle!
In addition to this, I shall be actively trying to recruit interested parties to subscribe to our newsletter, which will be instrumental in letting people know when the Kickstarter will go live, if you have not yet subscribed, hit the button below:


In preparation for the show I have had banners and a table cover made up which will hopefully look a bit better than this poor attempt of a mock up 😁


I'll take lots of pictures whilst I'm there and follow up with how it went at a later date. Wish me luck!
