The Holy Donut Maze

A local donut shop in Portland Maine called The Holy Donut asked for submissions to an activity book and I was contacted to participate. I put together a rather tricky donut maze. Feel free to print it out.

Head to head drafting card game

PBL ROBOTS card & dice game is a head to head, card and dice drafting game where you blow up robots! You control a 100 foot robot, you select a pilot, slide him/her into your robot and build up your robot's armor by stacking cards on top of it. As the game progresses your robot either gets bigger and stronger, or gets blow up limb by limb. Check out: 

To start the game each player takes turn drafting piles of cards to build their deck. Each player gets to craft their strategy and tries to assemble combos and a well rounded deck. 

The game play itself is a mixture of Magic the Gathering and Risk, as you play resources down onto the field (crew, armor, pilots, hangars) and you roll dice for the combat. Each card in your hand can be discarded to buy extra dice during combat. At the end of the game, each starter pilot goes into critical mode and you get a special boost or power up. 

If you enjoy table top games, and you enjoy complex competitive head to head battling games, this is a great one to pick up. In addition, if you enjoy games like Magic the Gathering, YuGiOh, Pokemon the trading card game, Netrunner, Mucnhkin, Risk, Hearthstone, or deck building games like Star Realms or Dominion you should give PBL ROBOTS a try!

William Hessian Art

William Hessian Art  ( has swallowed most of the energy of the Bearded Bunny Blog. This blog was the home and backbone to so many projects, ideas and was a literally journal of ideas. It was also my soapbox to share with the world what I was working on. In this time I have also succumbed to the ease of a social media giant, simply because it saved me a lot of time. 

 A few years ago this site became a funnel to direct everyone to my artist website and it still functions as that. I still get decent exposure from all the years of posting I did here on this blog and I still really enjoy the community of friends and artists that gathered around my work during those times.
 I posted hundreds of weekly Sketchbook Friday posts and was very consistent. Eventually, like with the daily web comic which I was able to successfully complete, an end was needed for that project. For me, I needed to pour my attention into a new project called PBL ROBOTS card & dice game.  I created my own card and dice game and started Hidden Ladder Games with John Sighless Supinski. At the same time I am on the board of the Union of Maine Visual Artists in Maine and also a founding member of the Hidden Ladder Collective, an art collective breaking down the barriers between artists and those that do not consider themselves artists (because we all are).

I really miss all the posts and still really appreciate all the support. I will still be posting here occasionally. I hope you reach out to me in all the other ways and say hi. Stay in touch. The bearded bunny is always here.
