2019 in Review

AI Rules, Battle Report, Grimdark Future, Merch, OPR Store, WarStuff

Hi everyone,

With the year coming to an end and we thought it would be cool to give you some insights into how the project has been doing, how the community has been developing, and a couple of cool things for you to check out.

Before we continue I’d like to thank you all for your amazing support you’ve given to this project by donating and spreading the word, this really is a dream come true and none of it would’ve been possible without you.

So, let’s dig in to some numbers! :D

This year has been amazing in terms of traffic and it’s been our biggest year so far, with 45,000+ visitors and 200,000+ page views over the past 12 months.

On top of that our games have been downloaded 100,000+ times, which is amazing!

monthly traffic

This traffic is coming from all over the world, and whilst the main concentration is in North America and Europe, we were amazed to see that our games have been downloaded in 120+ countries (apparently we even got some downloads from the Vatican, who knew the pope loves miniature wargames?).

It’s also been really cool to see that our games have spread out all the way to Japan where there is now a whole team dedicated to translating WarStuff into Japanese (download it here). I’m really grateful for all the awesome work they have done, and you should definitely check out their Instagram page here.

This year we’ve also been putting a lot of effort into releasing a lot more content and providing cool stuff for our Patreon supporters, and it really paid off because it’s also been our biggest year there, going from ~60 patrons in January all the way up to ~250 patrons in December. If you aren’t a patron yet you can support us here.

This year has also been one where we introduced a lot of new things to the project, and seeing how well they’ve all been received we’re going to keep pushing to innovate and provide all of our players with new content.

Back in August we launched our Monthly Newsletter and even though we’re new to this it’s been going pretty awesome so far. We’ve got 125+ subscribers and it keeps on growing, so we’re going to try and invest a little more time into it in the future just to make it that much more awesome. If you haven’t subscribed yet you can do so here.

Then in November we also also launched our Teespring Store, where we can finally offer some of the Brandon’s amazing art to be printed on a t-shirt. Even though we’re still super new to this we’re proud to say that we’ve had 500+ visitors so far! If you want to order your own t-shirt, mug, sticker, etc. then check out the store here.

When it comes to community we’ve also taken some bold steps in a new direction by having a dedicated Discord Server where players can discuss the games, chat about the lore, or organize online games via Roll20.

We’ve recently also linked the server to our Patreon rewards so patrons get access to exclusive channels, and really if you haven’t checked it out I think you’re missing out on a BIG part of our community. Join the server here.

Of course this doesn’t mean that the OPR Forum isn’t doing great as well, and we now have 750+ members and 950+ threads on there. This year we’ve introduced a new Hobby Section for people to share pictures of their models, and the community has been posting some awesome content like Vurrunna’s Proxy Paper Miniatures. Join the fun here.

We’re also really happy to see that the YouTube community has been embracing our games more and more, with content creatures making some awesome game reviews and battle reports with our rules. Check out some of the videos here:

We really couldn’t be prouder of how far our little project has come over the past year, and we’re really looking forward to all of the cool new stuff that we’re going to be doing over the next 12 months. :D

That’s it for the last post of 2019, we hope you enjoyed this little insight into everything that’s been going on and we’ll be back in a few weeks.

Happy new year!

– Gaetano

Black Friday/Cyber Monday + Wave 3 Released

Age of Fantasy, Firefight, Game Update, Grimdark Future, Merch, OPR Store, Skirmish

Hi everyone,

Today we’re really excited to bring you some news about how the new merch store is developing, as well as the release of Wave 3!


Black Friday / Cyber Monday

Since we’ve had a lot of people asking if we’d be doing any special deals for Black Friday / Cyber Monday let’s get this out of the way first. :D

Use promo code CYBER2019 to get 30% off anything in our store:

*** Promo code valid until December 12th ***

So far we’ve been getting some good feedback regarding the merch store so far, and have already had our first sales, so with this deal we hope to make it just that much sweeter for you to get OPR merch.

Some players also asked us if we could add more color options for the merch and we naturally obliged, so you now have a much wider variety of color options to choose from in the store.

OPR Merch Store is Live!

OPR Store

Hi everyone,

Today we’re proud to announce that finally the OPR Merch Store is live!

Check it out here: teespring.com/stores/one-page-rules

We’ve checked with the Teespring team and they said that if you make an order now it should still be delivered before Christmas, so if you’re still on the fence about what to get for your loved ones then maybe one of our awesome t-shirts is the answer. :D

In our merch store you’re going to find a ton of awesome designs from Grimdark Future and Age of Fantasy, which come on a variety of products and in different colors.

Right now we’ve got T-Shirts (male and female), Hoodies, Mugs and Stickers available, but if you want one of our designs on another product (Tote Bags, Phone Cases, etc.) make sure to send me an e-mail and I’ll see what we can do.

Here’s how to use it:

1) Select the design that you like.
