Marcel and Marco, the designers of the award winning game, Fresco, now introduce you to the wonderful world of fragrances through their new game, Parfum.

Aromatic scents were first used in the Orient in myriad ways. This expertise in manufacturing precious mixtures eventually reached Europe, with the southern French town of Grasse in Provence becoming the capital of the perfume craft.

In Parfum, players assume the role of master perfumers. They distill precious essences and create unique perfumes using ingredients like vanilla, lavender, rose, bergamot and violet.

But each customer has their own preferences, so even the most charming symphony of fragrances must satisfy the tastes of the wealthy clientele, so that they buy your creations. Choose your Aroma dice skillfully to obtain the right fragrance notes to create the most desired perfume. Watch your customer’s desires to become the most successful perfumer.

Enter Now!

Strange, just did the contest, then my daughter wanted to make it, too. But there's no 'Parfum' contest when she logs in^^, it starts with Thunderbirds.

They have answered to this. They give "non-Parfum" games so as to motivate people to 1) back the ks, and 2) so htat they can get their game immediately.

Not that I fully agree, but at least there is some reasoning behind

'I' don't care, much. But, Queen Games does this 'bait and switch' all of the time with their contests, and in that they stand nearly alone.

In this case, some people may not want Kingdom Builder or Templar, or they may be moving fast and think that they are about to have a chance at Parfum possibly resulting in disappointment, and my simple notice may save them a click.

And yet there's no link to the Parfum KS campaign anywhere in this thread, the competition page or even on the Parfum game page (it's buried within the forum pages).

I think their marketing people may want to rethink their strategy.

EDIT: The KS link is now on the BGG game page.

It is the new games we want. The ones we do not yet have, those spark our interest! If I get the chance to get a game the day it is available (maybe even early, maybe a few days later), that is the awesomeness that makes me participate in contests. That I might not have to purchase the game!

The arguments are sound, but I would say they miss the target by a mile.

Anyways, have fun with this contest, people!
