Hi chaps,

Finally decided to stop lurking and say hello to everyone!

I am one half of Space Duck Games and we are bringing a board game to Kickstarter in September called El Presidente. I am after a little bit of advice though.

Basically, I am trying to track down a few European board game manufacturers. We are hoping to self publish and have already managed to find a few fulfillment companies, but I am after a few decent printers that can also handle dice and pawns and chits.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Our minimum target is 250 backers, so we would also need to look at companies that offer smaller print runs.

Thanks for this great community. It has been so much help so far!

Hey,

I wish you luck on the kickstarter. I'm in the same boat but looking to go ahead a couple of months behind yours. What is your game about?

There are lots of lists and blogs out there, but we've found this one the best for many things: http://www.jamesmathe.com/hitchhikers-guide-to-game-manufact...

Cheers,
Ed

I can recommend www.yodagames.de. They produce a pretty wide range of customized game pieces with print runs starting at 10 copies. Good quality. You can ask for their price list on the website or look at my copy from last year: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B1J5OmgkxSMLbm9tZnhNSGdQNk0...

www.ludofact.de is of course the big name in the industry, but as far as I know, they've got a miminum print run of 1'000 copies.

Thanks for the information guys, very much appreciated.

El Presidente is going to be about becoming the next ruler of a small little banana republic floating on the ocean. Your going to use trading, collecting and backstabbing to beat the other players.

Really luck to be working with a great artist on it. Here is a mock up of one of the cards. Hope to be sharing more details with you soon!

I don't think they do small runs, but you could try Trefl from Poland.
