Let's Catch the Lion! available for preorder on nestorbooster!

http://www.nestorbooster.com/lion_detail.html

Boost the upcoming nestorgames edition of Madoka Kitao's Let's Catch the Lion!

You can preorder as many copies as you wish. This game will be published by nestorgames, but you have the chance of getting it at a lower price for a limited period of time.

どうぶつしょうぎ - Let's Catch the Lion! (a.k.a. Dōbutsu Shōgi, which means "animal shogi") is a simple version of Shogi. Both players have only four pieces – chick, giraffe, elephant and lion – and they're trying to either catch the opponent's lion or move their own lion to the other side. The board is just 3×4 squares, so the game is rather short, aimed mostly at getting children interested in Shogi – but even if you're an adult, the game is very enjoyable.

The nestorgames edition will be very special. Its tiles will be made of 8mm thick laser cut 'ice' acrylic with the animals engraved and painted (like the tiles in the nestorgames edition of Chex). The game has been illustrated by artist Silvia Romeral Andrés. You can se a draft of how the final product will look like in the big image below, and also a picture of the case logo.

Components: Cotton case, 10 acrylic tiles, board.

Notes and goodies: Preorders above 100 Eur (or 1 BTC approx.) will receive a nestorgames backpack! Remember that preoders in Bitcoin have a 30% discount instead of 20%. Shipping is only 9 € no matter how many copies you preorder. If you wish to place an order in Bitcoin, please contact me here. You can combine preorders of other games. They will be shipped together or separately depending on release dates.

Final price:
25,00 € ($ 32.50)
Preorder:
20,00 € ($ 26.00)
or 0.18 BTC
Goal = 500€
Ends: Nov-15





Thank you!

Nestor, will all the animals be painted in black?

Or, are you doing different colors?

Bummer.......that's a deal breaker for me. I loved the colorfulness of the original A LOT.

I would just like to see an actual printed game rather than the prototype illustration.

Nestor, if you ever did this, I would buy it in a second. As is, I fear this game is a little too simple to hold my interest for too long, but I really love mini-chess variants like this.
