My name is Adam Rehberg and I am a hobbyist game designer newer to the board game hobby. I was super fortunate to have one of my games "Brewin' USA" selected as a 2014 finalist to the Cards Against Humanity Tabletop Deathmatch which is a game design contest for indies. The contest was great motivation for me to continue this dream. Since the contest, I have been very focused on improving my game and taking it to the next level.

I have finished putting together a high quality Print and Play version of Brewin' USA and I wanted to share it with the community for free. Here is a link to the file www.brewinusa.com/merry-xmas-pnp.

As a special treat, I will be shipping One Pre-Production Copy of the Game to anybody who has downloaded the Print and Play file.

The Game:

You are an aspiring Craft Beer Entrepreneur during the inception of the Microbrew Revolution. You are competing with others for key Ingredients to Launch a Craft Beer product line that will control Microbrew hotspot locations and may need to win occasional Brewfests to accomplish this goal.


2-5 Players : < 60 minutes

The Mechanics
*Simultaneous Auction
*Hand Management
*Modular Board
*Area Control

Design Goals
I wanted to make something meaty enough for the hobby gamer crowd, yet quick and approachable to help introduce hobby gaming to new people. There is randomness in the game that is purposefully paired up with player decision to allow everybody to be competitive and strategic right from beginning to end.

Thanks in advance for any support and I am looking forward to any feedback. Also feel free to post a PnP that you released and we can trade feedback.

Again here is the link to the PnP. www.brewinusa.com/merry-xmas-pnp.

Bump to this! Let me know if you have a chance to play and if you have any feedback. I am a hobbyist homebrewer as well and tried to put a lot of that background into the game. If only I could make the cards smell like hops .

Is it alright to make a Tabletop Simulator mod to test this with? Wouldn't be uploaded to workshop without permission, can share you the save file instead.

Hi Cameron,

Thanks for the question! I have actually uploaded this into to Tabletop Simulator myself . I have no problem if you upload for yourself and your close nit group, but please don't post as a public mod as things may still be tweaked or changed with some game components and I want to control what the mod contains. However, I am super excited to announce that I am running the first TTS playtest this Thursday. I plan on hosting a TTS game night each Thursday going forward for people that are interested in the game, and if we can drum up enough interest then releasing the mod free to everybody .

Check out the game this Thursday at 8:00pm Central where I'll be playing with some close friends and streaming via twitch. I will open this up to everybody if things go really well. I also have a few TTS keys I'll be giving away to people watching or following the event via twitch.

FYI for Thursday 1/8/2014: We might be playtesting some tweaks to the auction mechanics. I've already had some feedback from people about auction mechanics and making sure they are not overly polarizing with players and game results.

More about this event here: http://brewinusa.com/brewin-usa-on-tabletop-simulator/

Stream will be here: http://www.twitch.tv/adamsapplegames

Thanks for awesome comment and I love where your head is at .

Adam

Thanks for the download, Adam!

Probably too late for your drawing, but I am happy to try this out and give feedback. My wife has editing experience and a personal pet peeve regarding ambiguity in rules or instructions. If you want it I'm sure she she would give feedback on that.

Carl - Thanks for downloading and I followed up on your note on instructions feedback via mail. We did hold the drawing for the game and Austin in Washington was the lucky winner.

More to come and I should have one more pre-production copy to give away before launching this onto KS.

Thanks again!

Adam

Good luck!
