ArizonaIn times of strength, prepare for times of weakness.
Things have been quite busy with the For The Win Kickstarter campaign so I haven't had much time to work on other game designs. Here is a quick status update for each one:
For The Win - Reached the $15K goal and moving along to the $25K goal. It's going to be tough to get there, but there is hope.
Getting there would be absolutely amazing, but even if the 3-4 player expansion isn't included, it will be cool to see the 2 player version get out there and enjoyed by others.
So far there have been 7 reviews and all have been positive which is encouraging.
A few people have compared For The Win to Hive which is quite a compliment because I'm a huge Hive fan. Both games are abstract, and involve placing tiles to form a board, but beyond that they are fairly different. I'm also excited to see the new (even more) portable version of Hive that is coming out. My wife and I love taking Hive to restaurants and giving it a smaller footprint is great. It's also cool that the new version includes the Ladybug because I've not yet acquired that for my regular set.
Roll For the Win - If For The Win does well enough, the dice version may have a chance of getting out there. I'm still looking for playtesters and feedback: http://www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/737817/need-playtesters-... The print and play for this is fairly simple, especially if you use the standard dice option (no character images).
Aces & Eights: Dead Man's Hand - Hoping to wrap up playtesting by the end of January and start pitching it to potential publishers. If you want some Geek Gold or want to have your name listed in the credits, let me know soon; time is running out. http://www.boardgamegeek.com/article/7982418#7982418
Coming soon... Beasts Unleashed. A 2-4 player game where players struggle to release desired Beasts into their region while keeping out the corrupted Beasts. Players must strategically use baits and other means to direct the Beasts toward or away from them. ...more to come, stay tuned.
